Red Carpet Fashion: 2012 Oscars (Part 1)

If you’re going to tune in to one awards show all season and watch just one red carpet…THIS is the one. But if you didn’t, thankfully you have me.

The Oscars were last night and the red carpet was the best I’ve seen all season. I’m not saying everyone got it right but I wasn’t totally bored…and that says a lot. We saw a lot of strapless and one-shoulder gowns (which to be honest I’m not a huge fan of either, but they weren’t all terrible), of course the neutral beaded gowns which are expected at the Oscars, but the biggest trend was white. Not an easy thing to pull off but let’s see who got it right and who missed the mark on the red carpet…

Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 Golden Globe Awards (Part 1)

If you didn’t watch the Golden Globes last night, you didn’t miss much. If you didn’t watch the Red Carpet, you missed a lot…one of the best I’ve seen in a while actually. That doesn’t mean I don’t have any worst dressed picks…because I do.

Let’s begin the judging, shall we?

Claire Danes in Calvin Klein

I applaud her for trying this pink color, because it’s not an easy color to pull off. However, it does remind me of my Barbie accessories from childhood.

Emma Stone in Calvin Klein

First of all, I thought this was Kate Bosworth for the first few minutes. Then I put my glasses on and realized it was Emma Stone. I want to like this. I really do. But either her hair, her skin or the dress has to be a different color. I can barely make out the difference between the 3.

January Jones in Versace

Being the face of Versace, there was no doubt in my mind January would wear Versace…specifically something from Spring 2011. That fringe-filled collection was beautiful but I didn’t think I would see much of it on the Red Carpet. I hated this when I first saw it on her but it’s starting to grow on me. She chose the right hair and makeup for the look. It’s a lot of chest but it works. I also always applaud a risk taker!

Jennifer Love Hewitt in Romona Keveza

Prom 2001…topped off with beehive hair-do.

Julie Bowen in Tadashi Yoshi

I actually love this dress. It’s a lot of ruffle but the silhouette looks fantastic on her. My only comment is that a slightly darker version of this would look better with her skintone and hair color.

 

Michelle Williams in Valentino

If this made anyone’s best dressed list, I have lost all hope in fashion. Daisies on the red carpet are a big NO. This may work to a ladies-who-lunch garden party…but that is the ONLY time it would work.

 

Mila Kunis in Vera Wang

I love the green on her, even though it was kind of over done last night, but the hair ages her a little. I was also sick of the French Twist hair-do about 15 minutes in to the Red Carpet coverage. Overall, she looks pretty.

 

Natalie Portman in Viktor & Rolf

Sandra Bullock in Jenny Packham

I love you Sandy but none of this made sense. Even if the faux bangs were of appropriate length, the stick straight hair was way too harsh with the lightness of this dress. It’s a pretty dress but I would have rather seen it on someone like Dianna Agron (especially so she’ll stop wearing Carolina Herrera and other “mature” designers).

 

Tilda Swinton in Jil Sander

I don’t understand this woman. She looks like a creature from Lord of the Rings. With or without the Jil Sander ensemble.

 

Be looking out for part 2…coming soon!
