Oscar Fashions

The carpet was full of pastels, blues and ruffles galore. As a whole, the fashions were not as extravagant as days gone by but it was a hearty effort by the celebs.


Sandra Bullock channeled Old Hollywood in a beaded Marchesa number. Sarah Jessica Parker dazzled in a unique Chanel Haute Couture. SJP's hair was looking a tad 'madame' which aged her more than flattered her. Carey Mulligan on the other hand was age-appropriate in a black Prada gown embellished with hardware that included forks, knives and scissors. Maggie Gyllenhall embraced spring's print trend in a strapless Dries Van Noten. She owned the look and stood out from the crowd in a good way!


Poor Vera Farmiga. Where must I begin with her dress? I usually love anything by Marchesa but this particular dress with the sculpted cascade of ruffles was unflattering . It looked ill-fitting on Vera as it accentuated the wrong parts of her body. Another odd choice on the carpet was Charlize Theron in Dior. She made a statement no doubt but a questionable one. The rosettes looked like cupcakes on her breasts. Sorry, but since when was that fashionable?


I love, love, loved Zoe Saldana in Givenchy. She took a huge risk but it certainly paid off! Her dress was so original from anything on the carpet. The textures from sequin to ruffle are exquisite. Zoe's fashion radar is spot on and I cannot wait to see her next gorgeous red carpet outfit.
