Oscars '18

Danai Gurira in Gabriela Hearst
What makes this look is the spray painted head design which mirrors an adornment.
Genius move.
She looks a modern day princess.

Aah. The Oscars. The unofficial last awards show of the awards season.

This year's telecast was quite entertaining. I like Jimmy Kimmel so his hosting skills were up to par. The winners in some of the major categories were expected except for two: Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture. Jordan Peele (yay!) and The Shape of Water won respectively. Ain't no way in hell I'm gonna watch a movie about a lady falling in love with a mutated sea creature. Nope. But congratulations, though. While Get Out is a fantastic movie (I watched it again last month and it holds up very well), is it really Best Picture Oscar winner worthy? Hmmmm.

The only thing that bugged me was the show bringing back Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway to present the Best Picture category. This was obviously a chance for the duo to make up for the winner mixup fiasco of last year. But, still. It was pointless. Bring out the Moonlight cast to present the award seeing how they weren't given the chance to truly bask in their win. This would've been a great watercooler moment.

Okay, fashion time!

Jennifer Garner in Atelier Versace
Look at Jennifer being all glam.
She looks beautiful.
Love the gown and especially the color.
Betty Gabriel in Tony Ward Couture
As much as I'm tired of seeing panties through these dresses,
this particular one is nice.
Mainly because of the embellishments.
The hairdo is spot on.
Gal Gadot in Givenchy
When she and Armie Hammer came out on stage together, I shook my head in awed disgust.
Just some gorgeous ass human beings.
Anywho, she decided to go ol' school glam of the '30s.
Me likey.
Gimme that dress.
The colors of the pendent doesn't complement the dress.
Jane Fonda in Balmain
No to the matching clutch.
Everything else? Perfecto.
Sidenote: I'm currently binging Grace and Frankie. It's not holding my attention but I'll power through.
Nicole Kidman in Armani Prive
OMWord, this shade of blue is beyond stunning.
The dress is a whimsical, structured beauty.
Paz Vega in Christopher Bu
I'm in mixed prints heaven.
Me love and want.
Earrings were needed.
Lupita Nyong'o in Atelier Versace
I get the Black Panther's Nakia warrior concept.
However, this look was just okay to me.
Zendaya in Giambattista Valli
Also a look that was just okay to me.
I like the design and flow of the dress.
Just can't get with the chocolate brown color.
Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton
Look, Emma already has her Oscar statuette.
She's just there so she won't get fined.
With that being said, I ain't mad at the outfit.
Taraji P. Henson in Vera Wang
It's a lot going on here.
Why is the lining an ugly shade of tan instead of simply black?
Sandra Bullock in Louis Vuitton
Quite pretty but it needed a little more puckering and gathering to bring out the defined waist.
Tiffany Haddish in a traditional Eritrean garment.
This look was in honor of her Eritrean Dad who passed away recently.
Rita Moreno in her slightly altered 1962 Oscars gown.
She won Best Supporting Actress that year, too.
Okay, I seriously have to step my game up.
Rita is still able to fit into her outfits from 56 years ago!
Viola Davis in Michael Kors
Again, Viola just knows how to rock color.
An absolute no to the cheap looking matching clutch.
Whoopi Goldberg in Christian Siriano
The pretty dress is wearing her.
And why add a basic black undergarment? At least wear one in a similar color.
