Oscars Review

Hey ya'll!  Sorry this post is a bit late...I came down with my quarterly sinus infection on Saturday and finally got to the doctor today.  Yay for antibiotics and heavily medicated cortisone injections!  Anyway,  I did watch the Oscars and while I was overall underwhelmed, (I'm sure the designers are losing sleep over this) I did have a few favorites that struck my fancy.  In no particular order....

Kristen Wiig. 
I am 1000% girl.  And this particular girly girl loves anything with tiers and ruffles.   I think my favorite part is the color of the dress against the dark nails and dark hair.  It seems so glam to me.  And I am SO glad she didn't overdo the bling!! 

Milla Jovovich. 
Another thing this girlie girl loves?  Shine.  (Glam shine, not gaudy shine just to be clear.)  This is exactly how a movie star should look at the Oscars.  Glamorous and gorgeous.

Rose Byrne.
I don't know if this was completely Oscars appropriate, but I still really love the look.  The hair, jewelry and makeup worked so well with the dress.  It was fun and polished without being over the top.

Octavia Spencer.
 Fabulous.  Her whole ensemble was perfection.  And the bonus? She WON.  (Of course, most would probably say winning was her highlight but this is a fashion post so I'm going with the dress as the highlight.)

 Jessica Chastain.
The Oscars is no time to be boring.  I love the originality of this dress; it was absolutely stunning.  And I love that she wore her hair loose and wavy.  I think an updo wouldn't have worked as well.  Overall amazing.

Stacy Keibler
Gorgeous.  This may be my favorite look of the night. I realize this is not everyone's cup of tea but this, for me, is pure glam.  Where else could you possibly wear this?!  Love, love, love.

  1. Yay, I've been waiting for this!! I personally loved Gwyneth but I defer to you and your expertise on all things fashion. Although, I did not care for JLo's.
