Oscars 2012

The Oscars!
Fashion's (and celebrities') big night out!
It didn't disappoint.

The big trends were RED and WHITE.

Also. Good thing H and I couldn't collaborate on this post in person because there could have been a knock down drag out fight over some of these dresses (kidding. kind of.)


RED HOT:

H: Red hot! You're a little slice of cherry pie Emma!
C: I love this so much it makes my heart beat faster. What an amazing choice. The fabric is to die.

H: This falls under the "just because it's vintage doesn't mean you should wear it to the Oscar's" category. I hate how she (her team) styled this. The jewelry, the bag, and the dress just don't go together!
C: Natalie Portman slipped from being fashion star last year during the awards shows to being a total mess. This dress was obviously originally purchased at Windsor, sold at a second hand store, and passed off as vintage. And her hair!! Sad story.

H: Her hair is approx 1 million times better this award show (PROPS). LOVE the dress but if we're being picky there is a brooch on the dress that needs to go and not a fan of the pink clutch.
C: Cue the Hallelujah chorus! This is the only dress I have liked of hers this award's season and she totally redeemed her other luke-warm choices. The color, fabric, fit are all perfection. Although I agree about the bag (is it Hello Kitty brand?) it's not enough to taint the otherwise fabulosity that is Michelle Williams.


WHITE HOT:

H: One of my favorite looks of the night!! Dear G, you make me want to wear a cape on a daily basis. sincerly, H.
C: REALLY? I thought she looked like the Pope! And what's with the helmut-head hair (try to say that 10 times fast)?

H: Feel free to disagree but I loved Rooney in this number. So soft and pretty to counter those severe bangs/hair/makeup.
C: I loved it as well. She looks like a little 20's dreamboat.

H: NO. no no no no no. I can't dignify this dress with a comment. It's so wrong.
C: Um. I loved it. But okay, okay, not for the Oscars. Maybe a large, million dollar/carat earring would have spruced up the look?

H: I don't know who this chick is but she rocks this dress. GORGE.
C: Milla looks AmAaaaaaZing. The look is perfectly accessorized and her hair and makeup are icing on this tall glass of water.

H: Another win for G! Absolutely breathtakingly stunning. Head. To. Toe.
C: I wish I could call her personally and tell her how inspiring and gorgeous her fashion choices have been lately. She's stealing the show for sure.



And now for some...other trends
(like amazing-ness and ugliness)

H: There will be many who disagree...but I hated this! This is the most flattering picture of this dress I've seen. It seriously looked like she borrowed it from her plus size sister. And her hair? Don't get me started on the synthetic pony tail glued to the back of her scalp. Sorry Sandra!
C: Medusa's tentacles are wrapped around her waist and people are loving it? I'm confused.

H: Angelina. You little sex kitten you. Loved this look. But the leg? Really? I can only imagine how long she practiced that pose in the mirror.
C: I literally saw an article entitled "The break out star of the Oscars--Angelina's right leg." So basically I hate it now. But to be fair, I think she looks pretty and I like that she wore black velvet!

H: Go Tina! Love this look for her.
C: So proud of Tina and her grow-up choice (finally).

H: Hands down the best I've ever seen her. She looks totes amaze-balls! Her hair, jewelry...the dress- dare I say perfection?
C: I agree!! I've never thought of Kristin Wiig as any sort of fashion icon ("I invented the term fashion icon. I was the original fashion icon." Am I the only SNL Penelope fan?) but she really hit it out of the park with this number.


H: Stacey does it again. The cinnamon roll swirl is a little large for my taste but she looks like an Oscar trophy...winning!
C: Her ONLY saving grace in this dress is that she is 7 feet tall. Okay, fine, and that she is on the arm of GC. This was my least favorite of her award's season choices. You can't just throw on a gold trash bag and call it good just because your face is pretty. I'm sure that's a law somewhere.

H: The dress is lovely. Her bangs need a trim so badly I can't.
C: I was surprised by how much I like this. Who knew that the socially awkward and hard-to-watch dork from the Office could clean up so nice? I agree about the bangs though. And did she curl them under with a 1-inch iron?

H: Why don't I own this dress? If only to do my dishes in- Friends style (anyone?). My favorite color of the night. Best dress nominee!
C: Marrrriaaa (picture me singing this in a high pitched falsetto voice). She is so gorgeous and this dress is so perfect. To quote Manny from Modern Family (a lot of pop culture references here today, folks) "She is a dream wrapped in a wish poured into chiffon."


Now it's your turn!
Who was your WORST?
Who was your BEST?

LOVED Jessica Chastain! She looked AMAZING! She was probably my best dressed. or Michelle Williams!
Worst dressed: sandra bullock. wth sandra. smh.
Oh, and did you see Giuliana's pre-show dress?? It was SOOOOO gorgeous! I think I liked it even better than the one she wore on the red carpet! I cannot find a picture of it anywhere, but she was wearing it on E doing the pre-show
