I honestly fell asleep before the Oscars were over, but I watched the ending the next morning on TIVO. Hooray for The Departed, and Hooray for Helen Mirren.
Nicole looked stunning in Balenciaga.. She was by far one of my favorite looks of the evening. Such a beautiful shade of red. I could do without the shoes, but I love the dress.
Penelope looked gorgeous in this Versace gown. I love everything about her look. The dress is amazing. Such a beautiful color on her skin. The hair and makeup looked great too.
I think my most favorite look of the night was fellow redhead, Isla Fisher. She looks amazing, and her date was by far the HOTTEST of the evening-shout out Sasha Baron Cohen!
Isla wore Monique Lhuillier and the green was so gorgeous on her. I love her big hair and her spray on tan and the whole thing. I love her. Stunning.
I know a lot of people did not like Jessica Biel's look in this Oscar de la Renta dress, but I happen to love it. It provided me with a little entertainment because it set off a joke with my husband. I love the color of the dress and the simple line with the simple punch of the black belt. I was excited about this dress and I said "Oh I love her Oscar de la Renta" to which my husband who was not really paying attention says "Oscar de la Hoya made her dress?".
To which I say "Oh yes, remember how Jessica Biel was spotted with Derek Jeter a few weeks ago"?
Me: "Well she left Derek for Oscar and he agreed to make her a dress for the Oscars. Isn't that precious...Oscar made her a dress for the Oscars?"
Husband: "REALLY? He sews dresses?"
Me: "Oh yes, he is going to be on Project Runway this season."
Husband: " Oh I knew it would only be a matter of time before quasi celebs tried to make a buck from Project Runway."
Me: " I know....it is such a shame."
I think I may have my husband interested in Project Runway this season. I think I may have him just as excited as I am. The more he believed my crazy story, the more I wanted to keep going. It was like a perfect improv skit that only I could enjoy.
Maybe Nick Verreos will make a guest appearance and my husband will think it is Oscar de la Hoya and I will not be found out to be the awful fibber I am at the expense of a few laughs. At any rate, at least I did get a few laughs.
The lesson we can all take from this is: My husband and all husbands should listen very close when their wives speak--then we can avoid situations like this.
I also thought Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Winslet looked great.
I did not like Kirsten Dunst. Not at all. I have no idea who she is wearing, and I do not even care. She just does not look put together in my opinion. Blah.
I have enjoyed reading everyone else's opinions on the fashion on all the other blogs.
Have a great day!
