Oscars Fashion 2010

Very brief post, had an awfully stressful day 🙁 

The Good

Gorgeous colour and dress. I’m a bit perplexed by the rosebud boobs, the dress would be dull without them but I’m not sure they work. 

Gorgeous, beautiful, stunning dress. Absolutely perfect.

Kate looks so stunning in simple shapes, however they can be a little boring on the red carpet. The silhouette works so well on her though, I love the nude, metallic shades. 

Such a beautiful shape, the fit is perfect too. But I think Kristen needs to step out of the gothic vampire shadow and try some other styles. 

Nice…but just nice. I like the sheer detailing and shiny fabric. 

The Bad

Pretty dress, on anyone else it would be lovely. But Penelope has been wearing this shape for the last few seasons. The colour is really pretty though.

Two words…bubble wrap. 

Like Penelope’s dress, it’s not awful per say but it’s playing it very safe for a stunning girl. 

Yes it’s Chanel couture, but it doesn’t always mean it’s going to work. Nothing can make up for an ill-fitting dress. 

On the fence

I love this dress, I do. But something about the overall image doesn’t work. I’m not sure whether it’s the shoes, the black being too stark against the pale skin or the hair. What do you think?!

    Reena, I agree with all of your choices. I also loved Charlize and her gown, I know her boobs looked a bit odd, but I really liked her gown. I LOVED Vera Farmiga's dress! Hope you are doing better. 🙂

    I like Carey Mulligan's dress, though I was bored by a lot of the fashion.
