I’ve been the worst lately and am just ignoring the blog, but let’s get back into it. What better night than Oscar night? There are some clear trends this year for the ladies: pants suits, tulle, ruffles, and metallic silver. Some ladies pulled them off a little better than others. I also love that men are getting a little more bold with all the brocade blazers out there. As always, the images are from People.
Here are my best and worst from the evening:
I can’t tell if this is white or silver, but Amy Adams really knows her look. I saw her do an interview about her style recently and she said she’s really honed in on the silhouettes and colors that work for her, and doesn’t experiment too much anymore. I agree, she knows what works.
Regina King makes this simple dress look modern and classic at the same time. White dresses were popular this year, and I think she did it really well.
I love love love that Helen Mirren wore a great color. Everyone else her age is in black and white, and here she is riding the trends, but keeping it comfortable. She could not have picked anything better.
The prize for best personification of an emoji goes to Jennifer Hudson for salsa girl. She looks like a million bucks, and I love a statement architectural ruffle like this. Again, classic but so modern.
Emma Stone looks like she’s wearing a dinosaur mascot costume. Maybe this is too high fashion for me but I don’t like the color, the pattern, or the shoulder. Ugh.
What are we doing Sarah Paulson? This does not look flattering, comfortable, or interesting. A little too much.
I love the shoulder detail on Angela Bassett, but I think the dress is just too tight. I don’t like how there are so many creases and the leg slit look like it’s about to bust. Good effort, needs better execution.
So many women wore pants suits this year. I don’t understand the disappearing feet look here with Awkwafina. Many women wore their pant hems to the floor, and it looks weird to me. I also just don’t think this was a great look for Awkwafina- too much and weird proportions.
Henry Golding just looks too much like Mr. Peanut. A little too classic…
Matching for prom night- I’m dead.
Who were your faves?
