Oscars 2009 – The gown wrap up

Competitions - Award Shows

The dress parade was as good as expected. Hollywood put on its Oscars best, Fashion Police went out hunting & I went along. Check out the pictures here from the OSCARS official webpage.

Dream Girls:

I loved Frieda Pinto in her dreamy hyacinth John Galliano: she was the belle of the ball. Marion Cottiyard was a stunner too: this all glamour French lady, was fresh, a little risqué and very elegant. I was not crazy about the up-do as her hair would have looked better if worn down with that gown, but never mind.
Diane Lane dressed her age and body in her Dolce & Gabbana. She did not steal the show, but she was very put together. Viola Davis was darn hot and sexy. The same goes for Taraji P. Henson and Alicia Keys. Well done ladies.

Elegant yet stiff:

Angelina Jolie, looked beautiful in black, but she is always serious looking, and too serious in a frivolous red carpet parade is just un-cool and boring in my book. As for Oscar winner Penelope Cruz, vintage is always a good choice and suits her, but vintage hair to go with it is a bit much, don’t you think?


Jessica Biel was wearing a Prada dress that just looked like a sack. This is shame because Miss Biel is one stunning woman. Fire the stylist now!

Inspiration from the bakery department:

I guess this was the year of the cream puff design, because Miley Cyrus and Melissa George both sported the look. Miley’s gown was an awful choice, too old for a 16 year old and poor Melissa looked like a cross between a cream dessert and an upside down mushroom.

Mama-daughter gown swap: Vanessa Hudgens’ Marchesa was a nice dress but it should have been worn by a 30 year old woman. Heidi Klum was too exposed (again…) and she wore too much jewelry: humongous earrings, bracelets, the works. Honey: less is more in the jewelry department and the older we get the more we should cover up.

Lets play dress up clothes:

Sarah Jessica Parker looked as an aged Barbie doll with plastic hair, while the dress did not fit well around the boobies. I am guessing that this was a look that Patricia Field did not put together.
