I'll keep this post as short as possible. I'm no fashion expert. I really don't care about trends and all the crap. I like what I like, and I'll wear it if I want to. So, when it comes to reviewing award show fashions I just pick out what I like! These are my opinions alone, and I'm sorry if you don't agree! Perez Hilton doesn't! You win some you lose some I guess. Anyways, on with the fashion review!
I have a few categories that I use, and I'll use them from now on in my reviews like this. The fist being Oh Damn! In here you will find the people who, when you see them, just make you think oh damn!
|Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried (Oh Damn Girls!)|
She is now officially a girl crush of mine. Not many people would be able to pull this dress off but she does. And man, she does it well! I'm not sure about the hair, but I never am with short hair. She keeps everything a little sexy, but still all covered which is always a hard combo to handle for some people.
Amanda. Oh Amanda. You look GORGEOUS! I saw this on a worst dressed list and wanted to scream. She looks stunning. The colours work with her skin tone, her hair looks lovely. I want her makeup. All of it! The dress is flattering, classy and elegant. If I could look like this, I would in 3 seconds flat!
The next category is something along the lines of "Yeah, you look nice" said with a nodding of the head.
|Adele, Jennifer Aniston and Helen Hunt (Yeah, you look nice)|
Yay! She's finally wearing something that fits, flatters and looks nice. She's made some questionable fashion choices but this isn't on of them. It's classy and elegant, and just works for her. The hair and makeup might have been seen a few thousand times on here, but she looks so beautiful with it that I don't even care.
I love this woman, and have since that first episode of Friends. I think she's a beautiful lady, and wears most things well. She might not be brings the sexy 'Rachel' back with the hair, and it might look a little limp but the dress looks fab. It's one of the only dressed with a trail and big puffy skirt that I love. I like the colour and the fit, and doesn't over expose the boobs!
She looks nice. I can't say much more than that. The dress is very elegant, the colour is stunning and the fit if beautiful. I love the necklace. It just adds that little something without it being too much. It's not my favourite hair style on her but it works just fine.
Next we have the "Ermm What?" category.
|Eve Stewart (Ermm What?)|
To be honest, I'm not even sure what dress she is wearing but I don't think it matters. I just want to know why someone is wearing cat ears to the Oscars. They might be pretty cat ears, but they are still cat ears and she's still at the Oscars. I just can't even....
Next up, I have the "It works for you". I find that some people pull other things better than others. I think the outfits on the next two people might be a bit.. erm... awful but on these people they work and don't look bad.
Helena Bonham Carter
This lady always makes me stop and think. I think it's her personality, or the characters that she plays in films, but she pulls of dresses that should be awful. This might not be the best thing she's ever worn but she pull it off better than most would. The straps could look better but I like the rest.
I don't know how she manages to pull off this bright yellow, fitted and structured dress but she does and she look great in it! I like the V next design, and I love the way it sits on her. The detail is gorgeous and gives here a beautiful shape, and I just love it on her. I don't think it would work on many other people though.
The next is the "could be better" category. These girls look stunning, but there are just certain aspects of the outfits that I would change so they reach the Oh Damn! category.
|Jennifer Hudson, Catherine Zeta Jones and Renee Zellweger (Could Be Better)|
The only thing I would change is the fit around the stomach area. I think it could be a bit more flattering on her, but the colours work and she looks stunning.
Catherine Zeta Jones
I just don't like the bottom. I don't get the whole sheer thing, and think someone as gorgeous as her can do soo much better. I love the dress until it hits her knee, so maybe I'd chop it off there or keep it all opaque.
Oh honey, I think it might be the fact that you are so skinny. I don't like how low the dress is under the arm and I don't like the way it lays on her figure. I've always preferred Renee in her Bridget Jones stage to be honest, so I little more meat on her wouldn't go a miss and it might make her fill out the dress a little more.
Now we get on to the "Just no" category.
|Salma Hayek, Jennifer Garner, Oliva Munn and Kristen Stewart|
She looks amazing for 46, but what is happening with this dress. I don't like the material, and the neckline makes me cringe a little. She can pull off so many things, but this just isn't one of them.
I only have one sentence on this dress! What are the little ruffle things on the side? I will leave it there, because without those she would be one of my best dressed!
For me this just sits down too low, and I'm not a fan of the bottom either. I just want this to cover much more boobage than it does, and I think the bottom could have be better by keeping it slimmer. The extra puff around the hips and waist isn't a hit for me either.
She is always a hit and miss for me when it comes to fashion. I think she is stunning and she sort of an idol of mine but this dress is horrid. I'm sorry but it is. The colour is too pale for her in my opinion, and the bottom is just a bit of a mess. I want it to sit higher too. I have reveiwed some of her fashion choices before if you fancy a peek (link).
The last official category in my weird little head is "Oh honey! why?". This is my worst dressed of the Oscars 2013.
|Melissa McCartney, Sally Field and Rachel Mwanza|
I don't even know where to begin with this to best honest. It just doesn't look good. Melissa is always a bit of a miss when it comes to fashion. She doesn't make the greatest fashion choices, and this just emphasises all the wrong areas.
This is just too much for me. With the different textures and different varieties of sheer fabric makes my little head hurt. It's not as bad a some, but it's not good. Sorry!
I have a "what are you thinking?" moment with this dress. I don't get it, at ALL! It's big and puffy, the pattern isn't great and it's all different lengths. It's not Oscars worthy, and it's not doing anything for me at all.
To end this post, lets all give KStew an aww for the crutches she was on. Poor girl can't catch a break at the Oscars. First she coughs while giving out an award, and now she's hopping down the red carpet.
