I wasn’t going to let a little trip to Australia stop me from sharing my top fashion picks at this year’s Oscars. PS. How shocked are you that Meryl Streep won Best Actress? When the Oscar nominations were announced, I predicted that the Best Actress category was the one ripe for an upset. Guess I was right after all. Congrats to Queen Meryl, but I do feel badly for Viola who was the frontrunner. She was also fantastic in her role. Why couldn’t there been a tie?
Typically on Homorazzi.com, my posts, though popular (wink), don’t illicit as much controversy as Tyrell and Nic‘s Rihanna and Chris Brown posts, nor Adam‘s “Married Men” type posts. The closest thing I ever get to people yelling at me is my Award fashion posts. I’m sure a few of my choices will continue that trend. Hope you enjoy my fashion highlights.
My Favorite 10 Dresses @ The 2012 Oscars
Only an actress as cute as Michelle Williams could’ve pulled off this Louis Vuitton dress. Loved her choice of going with the color coral. She definitely walks to the beat of her own fashion drum.
Lopez better flaunt it while she has it. In a couple of years, this plunging Zuhair Murad sheer dress would definitely be age inappropriate. Her rumored nip slip inspired the Twitter handle, JLosNipple, with the first tweet “Did You See Me?”. Are you following her nip?
All I want for Christmas is Emma Stone in this red Giambattista Valli gown. The bow could be too much, but Stone pulls it off.
In a sea of white dresses on the red carpet, Milla Jovovich stood out like a supernova in this sparkling Elie Saab gown.
She may have lost out to Meryl for Best Actress, but Davis beats her handily in the all-important fashion battle with this green Vera Wang. Loved the gorgeous detail on the bottom. Bravo also for ditching the wig and weave.
Stacy’s role was simple. Be stunning arm candy for George Clooney. Done and done. This gold Grecian-style Marchesa creation with rose detail could’ve been cheesy but Keibler pulled it off. Clooney didn’t need to win the Oscar, he had his own life-sized trophy to hold onto.
Loved the nude Gucci gown, but hated Cameron’s hair. It’s a little too beach-y for my liking.
Here’s another actress who had a great dress but screwed up with the hairstyle. This black and gold embroidered Alexander McQueen would’ve been better served with an updo.
Rooney was another woman dressed in white that stood out. This art deco-inspired white Givenchy was a masterpiece.
It’s simple and black. In other words, it’s classic Jolie. If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it. After, IMHO, her misstep at the Golden Globes in that white and red gown, I’m happy she chose this Atelier Versace.
On The Fence
Glenn Close & Gwyneth Paltrow
There are aspects of both of these dresses I liked, and some I didn’t like. Since I was on the fence with both of them, I decided to pit these two actresses together since they both wore jackets on the red carpet. Palrow’s Tom Ford gown featured clean cut lines and a cape detail, while Close opted for a green Zac Posen design. Personally, I liked Glenn’s choice more. On a side note, doesn’t Gwyneth look like a younger Helen Mirren in that outfit?
Now that I’ve shared my top picks, I’d love to hear yours. Post all your favorite fashion moments from last night.
