Lights, Camera, Action!

The awards season may be over in the States, but I can't wait until after the Juno's...I need to talk Academy Awards Style!

Shimmer, Sheer, and Ruby Reds!
Colour and Couture ruled the red carpet!

First up!  

Anne Hathaway.

She wore so many gorgeous outfits, (6 gowns, and one CUSTOM made tux) but the one dress I wasn't impressed with, was the dress she wore on the red carpet. She was the HOST! She could have picked any dress in the world, and she chose a (beautiful, don't get me wrong) Valentino, DIRECTLY off the runway- from 2002. For me, I didn't have the WOW factor.

In my opinion, she should have worn the Electric blue dress from Armani Prive! Custom Satin, and just delish! (Did you know that the FAB Rachel Zoe styled her?)


Sandra Bullock

Beautiful dress, by Vera Wang- but she NEEDED statement earrings.

Smokin' body, perfect complexion- but something is missing! I think that Stella & Dot's PETRA FRINGE STATEMENT EARRINGS and BRACELET would have worked perfectly. The dark metal against this red, would have been beautiful! Thoughts?

Ok, this next look will not please the tabloid crowd, and the majority of viewers, but the fashion crowd swooned over Kate Blanchett in Givenchy. I love this, it is straight off the Spring Couture 2011 runway. I LOVE the green with the lavender. It is a piece of art, not meant to be sexy, meant for fashion, in the true sense of the word.

One of my FAV looks was from Jennifer Hudson. She was SMOKIN' in Versace! The tangerine dress, was stunning with her beautiful skin. She was wearing purple shoes with the dress, which I think is adorable!

I also thoroughly enjoyed Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Haute Couture:

But my NUMBER ONE look of the night!
Gwyneth Paltrow in CALVIN KLEIN 
Pure perfection. It looks like liquid metal. Her hair was perfect. Gorgeous, LOVE it, all around.

Now, onto my worst dressed list:

 Helena Boham Carter

I loved her in 'The Kings Speech',  but what the hell...she has the worst taste...but it's Helena Boham Carter, could I expect anything more from her?

Marisa Tomei

Ugh. Do I even need to say anything about this monstrosity? Horrific. Terrible cut, TERRIBLE hair. She has a hot body, and this is just aweful. It looks like she got her hair done at a Beauty School, and then brushed it out. (no offense to beauty school attendees, but it's the bloody OSCARS.)

(I am hopped up on T3's from a serious ear infection-in both ears- ewwww! - So forgive me for spelling mistakes or whatever...)

 Much love,


  1. What did you think of Amy Adam's jewelry choice? Bleck in my opinion, I hope she wore it for sentimental reasons, because it did not look good with what she was wearing. Your blog is off to a great start.

  2. Horrible! I mean, the Jewelry itself is Cartier, so it's not like I can bash it- but WHAT was she doing pairing it with that L’Wren Scott gown? The gown is beautiful- L'Wren makes gorgeous, form fitting gowns, but the neckline and cap sleeves are all sorts of wrong with the necklace. Not to mention the texture of the gown with pearls and the stone? Same goes with the bracelet. I feel like maybe she was trying to do "Old Hollywood Glam", but it didn't work out so well in my opinion. I'm with you @Meech! BLECK is right!

  3. RJ,

    Yes you're off to great start! Thanks for keeping my photo of Anne Hathaway properly credited.

    A word to the wise, I'd strongly suggest you add the full credit line info for the rest of the photos to avoid (hopefully) a tangle with A.M.P.A.S. and the creators.

    Have to say I recorded the awards so I could see them after I finished photographing and many of the dresses which looked "washed out" on TV looked great in person.

    Best of luck,


  4. Hey Jonathan-
    I am a complete rookie- and had no idea. I use Google Images for photos, and the photographers aren't credited, so I didn't know how to do that. I had stumbled across your photo, and it was so gorgeous- but underneath it said it was yours, so I was able to do that...hmm. Thanks, I'll look into how to find out which photographer takes the photos.
