Oscar Look Book...So I'm an Oscar Whore, So What?

Posted by Miss Ess, February 24, 2008 09:05pm | Post a Comment
As we all know, the Oscars are really about the fashion--  because, as my dear floor manaoscarger Don Ford always says, "It's about the pageantry."  Oh, yes. 

Please, just this once, allow me to be utterly self indulgent and....Let's look at some of my favorites from the red carpet!





Best Accessory:


amy adams oscars

To Amy Adams for her see-through birdy bag.  This bag is aaaaaamazing-- that's an arched winged flying bird on the top!  I saw her admit to Ryan Seacrest on E! that it holds ... nothing!  It's made of gold mesh and essentially is just there to look good.  (On the dress side of things, props to Miss Amy for wearing Proenza Schouler as well!  Lovely color on a redhead.)

Best Accessory Part 2:

johnny depp vanessa paradis oscars

To Vanessa Paradis.  She's got the ultimate arm candy.

Worst Accessory:

diablo cody juno oscars

To Diablo Cody for her exposed ink. I know this may make me unpopular, but as anyone who knows me knows, I firmly believe that tattoos (and chewing gum) have NO place on the red carpet on such a night as the Oscars.   I mean, I know she was a stripper and all, but the Oscars are all about glamour, people.  And leopard print, that's a whooooole other story.  Call me old fashioned.  Whatever. I can take it.

Oh wait, but I forgot about Julie Christie's gloves:

Do I even have to type What Was She Thinking?!

Best Jewelery:

jennifer garner laura leighton oscars 2008

To Jennifer Garner for her gorgeous diamond necklace.  That's what we call glamour, people.  That's right, with a "U".

Unexpectedly Good:

george clooney sarah oscars 2008

To Sara Lawson, George Clooney's latest  arm candy.  She met Clooney when she was a cocktail waitress in Vegas.  Do I need to say more about why her dress is particularly unexpectedly good?  It looks like a Monet painting, and I always enjoy tasteful beading, don't you?

Best Pregnant Lady Getup:

To Cate Blanchett, of course!  The neckline alone of this dress is awe-inspiring.

Best Hair:

jessica alba oscars 2008

To Jessica Alba.  The dress was a mess, but the hair!  I love it.  Sorry I can't make the photo bigger.

Best Fashion, Male:

wesley snipes spike lee hilary swank oscars 2008

To Spike Lee and Wesley Snipes.  Class all the way.  So Wesley dodged taxes a few years, whatever, at least he knows how to dress it up!

Least Impressed to Be At the Oscars:

harrison ford calista flockhart oscars 2008oscars 2008 casey affleck summer phoenix

It's a tie between Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart and Casey Affleck & Summer Phoenix.  Don't get too excited, guys.

Biggest Risk & Payoff:

marion cotillard oscars 2008

To Marion Cotillard in Jean Paul Gaultier.  Sexytime, no?

The Honorary "Cameron Diaz Paper Napkin Dress Award" goes to:

Cameron Diaz
once again!  What is she thinking?  Remember this dress from a year or two ago?  It's called the Oscars, Cam!  Get creative, woman!

Most Apparent Botox O.D.:

nicole kidman oscars 2008

Wax figurine or Nicole Kidman?  You make the call.

 Most Obvious Beard:

oscars 2008 john travolta kelly preston

With a unanimous vote, it's John Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston!

Most Glamourous Dress:

renee zellweger oscars 2008

It pains me to say Renee Zellweger in Carolina Herrera.   She's not my favorite actress, but the gown, people, the gown!

Sentimental Favorites:

Glen and Mar.
