It’s Fresh New You week and what could be more fun than to start the week off with some super-glam inspiration? There some great moments at last night’s 82nd annual Academy Awards: Neil Patrick Harris opening the show, Kathyrn Bigelow being the first woman to win the Best Director Oscar, the John Hughes tribute. And there were the not-so-great moments: The interpretive dances to the best scores, and what was with the exclusion of Farrah Fawcett in the “In Memoriam” section!?! There were also great and not-so-great fashion moments, too. Here’s my take!
Sandra Bullock: The big winner of the night shined in a gold Marchesa dress. Not only was the dress stunning, her hair and bright lip were AMAZING! The entire look was just Oscar gold… how appropriate that she won!
Maggie Gyllenhaal: Print is usually not seen on red carpets, which is why I found this dress refreshing and young. Extra points for picking an atypical award show fashion designer like Dries Van Noten.
Cameron Diaz: Cameron shined as well in this Oscar De La Renta gown. Normally, she wears something more fun but I prefer her more grown-up look.
Kristen Stewart: I thought Kristen looked beautiful in Monique Lhuillier. She is usually a bit more grunge and pouty but when gets glammed up and smiles she is a knock out!
Rachel McAdams: Confession: Rachel McAdams is my girl crush! She looked so fabulous last night in this Elie Saab dress and I loved the big earring as well. Again, a print is always a fresh look.
Sarah Jessica Parker: I always appreciate a fashion forward look on the red carpet but SJP’s Chanel Haute Couture light yellow gown left me with mixed feelings. First I hated it, then it grew on me and now I am just not sure! Plus her hair was a bit much.
Carey Mulligan: Although I do think the Prada dress itself is gorgeous, her shoe choice was entirely wrong. The shorter front of the dress paired with a thick ankle strap just cut her leg at the wrong place.
Vera Farmiga: I found this Marchesa dress just unflattering. Too much volume! She has a great shape so why is she hiding it?
Diane Kruger: I consider her one of the most stylish female celebs but lately she’s been letting me down. I am sure this Chanel Haute Couture gown had hanger appeal but I think I would prefer it without the messy applique section in the middle.
Charlize Theron: I mean honestly, Charlize would be gorgeous in a potato sack but the Christian Dior dress she picked was just wrong. If she wanted everyone to be looking at her breasts all night, she succeeded!
