|Rosamund Pike in Givenchy|
My pick for Best Dressed
Each year, folks complain about how boring the Oscars is. Well, my friends, the Oscars is ALWAYS boring. One year after the other.
But we ain't here for all of that, right? No. We're here to talk red carpet fashion!
However, before I begin I want to say that Neil Patrick Harris was corny as a host. I'm just about tired of him singing and, throughout the show, I was tired of him making a joke and then letting the joke simmer while the audience
fake laugh. It's like, dude, just make the joke and continue on to what you're gonna say next. Geez. Also, Octavia should ignore him for the rest of her life. Anywho, congratulations to Common Lonnie Lynn and John Legend John Stephens for Glory, J.K. Simmons for his phenomenal work in Whiplash, and Eddie Redmayne for is work in The Theory of Everything (a movie I do plan to watch...soon-ish).
|Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford|
Monochrome at its best.
|Rita Ora in Marchesa|
While she did a serviceable job with her performance of "Grateful", she absolutely stunned on the carpet.
She looks amazing. And the haircut fits her to a T.
|Robin Roberts in Marc Bouwer|
While I wished something else could have been done to her hair, she looks really pretty in this sparkling number.
That color was made for her.
|Emma Stone in Elie Saab|
Are we matching our shoes to our dress again? Is that now in style?
This dress is a keeper.
And, once again, Emma got the styling right.
|Jennifer Hudson in Romona Keveza|
Praise Jennifer for looking this good.
I can't recall the last time she has looked this good.
Great shade of yellow.
|Lady Gaga in custom Alaia|
I added her to this list because of her Sound of Music tribute performance.
Folks gotta look past her antics and realize that this lady right here is muthafuckin' talented.
Honestly, her performance saved the show. It was that good.
Also, I'm trying very hard to give Ms. Rhimes the benefit of the doubt but her tweet is still nagging me this early fine morning.
So with that being said, Shonda can go kick rocks and stick to writing her shows.
|Gwyneth Paltrow in custom Ralph & Russo|
Too bubblegum pink. Also, what is that creation on her arm?
|Scarlett Johannson in Marchesa|
The dress is nicely shaped for her body. But that's all I got.
The shade is really drab-like, the necklace totally unnecessary, and the faux hi-top fade is just off.
|Solange Knowles in Christian Siriano|
How can a Solange x Christian pairing go all so wrong?
This look, from head to toe, just doesn't work.
