I was really impressed by many of the dresses worn to the Oscars this year. In fact, I was impressed by the show (I did fast forward through a lot of it) but Hugh Jackman was awesome! I saw him in 'A Boy From Oz' on Broadway and he just doesn't disappoint. I didn't watch the Barbara Walters interviews after the show, but I saw a clip today of his lap dance he did for her. whoa.
And back to the dresses - I'm going to focus on the good rather than the bad here:
Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson, they look AMAZING. I couldn't find a good picture of Viola alone so I put them up together - Taraji is so freakin' adorable and I love both of their dresses.
Angelina Jolie - a lot of people think she looked boring but I like it. It's tasteful and flattering and unfussy, as the mother of 6 kids I can't imagine a better choice. Plus those earrings...
Another black column dress I liked (surprisingly) -
Maybe I shouldn't be surprised since it is a similar silhouette to my wedding dress.
Here we have some lovely blue dresses:
And cream dresses -
Evan Rachel Wood's dress is gorgeous, I love the detail on the bodice and the flowy skirt. It's beautiful, but I hate her makeup and hair, she looks so severe - it's like she is desperate to be an older woman.
Penelope Cruz wore a gorgeous vintage gown -
I also really liked Anne Hathaway's dress, she looked beautiful. I wonder though how the dress fit her because from some angles it looked like the bodice stuck out a little, like it was armor that couldn't quite be molded to fit. Anyway, it was gorgeous.
And Natalie Portman. Let's face it, she would look amazing in a shapeless sack but this gown is great - it's sophisticated but youthful at the same time. Perfect for a young woman who should look like a young woman.
Last but certainly not least, Meryl Streep. She sometime looks kind of crazy at awards events, but this dress is beautiful.
