I was a bit disappointed in the fashions last night; there were a few that were stunning (Felicity, Jessica), but for the most part the dresses were pretty lackluster - much like the telecast itself.
With that said, here are my choices:
Is anyone else truly frightened? I am. You do know Corpse Bride was just a movie, right Helena Bonham Carter? I'm gonna need you to put the Kate Moss meets Bjork collection back in the closet. America isn't ready.
We haven't seen big black women sport trash bags since Missy Elliott's "I Can't Stand The Rain" back in the late 90s. Guess the Queen decided to try to bring that shit back. Sorry honey, history's not quite ready to repeat itself yet. Especially since it didn't really work the first time.
I'm sure Reese Witherspoon was really wary of her Oscar gown pick last night, especially after the Golden Globes duplicate dress debacle. But I don't understand this dress. Why do I get the feeling it was inspired by Liberace's dining room chandelier? Go with something a bit simpler next time, honey. Ryan's face will get you all the attention you need.
Can someone explain to me why Charlize Theronis wearing a satin cat on her shoulder? Why, Charlize? You would've actually looked decent without your shoulder pad purse.
What in hell was Naomi Watts thinking? I know you weren't nominated and it sucks, and I know King King was not a great financial success and probably set you back a few points with the critics, and I know your love life sucks meanwhile your best gal Nicole Kidman is getting married, but did you really have to take it out on Nana's old drapes?
The always classy and graceful Ziyi Zhang looked beautiful in this get-up last night. Unlike some other actresses (cough-cough Keira Knightley cough-cough) that don't have as Fergie would say "lovely lady lumps," she knows what dresses work for her body. And this one most definitely does. By the way, I hear she might be dating Jake Gyllenhaal. Hm...
