Fashion Monday Madness

Hello fashionistas and welcome to my weekly discussion of what the celebs are wearing.  Today's post will be extra photo packed because of last night's Oscar ceremony in which there was a lot more that went good then went bad.  So without further ado...

The Good....

Mila Kunis has worn so many amazing dresses this award season and I'm so happy she didn't let me down on the big night.  The color is romantic, the draping is dramatic, and it fits her beautifully.  Pure perfection from Family Guy's Meg.  Stewie would be proud!

Halle Berry looks gorgeous from the top of her head to the end of her train.  Minimalism is the key to the beauty of this dress.  The sparkles on the dress are better than any jewelry and the gauziness at the bottom make her look like she's floating on a cloud.

Natalie Portman makes me want to run out and get pregnant....well, not quite.  But she looks gorgeous in this gown that is a stand-out color and drapes her belly bump perfectly.  Again, all pregnant women wish they could look this good.

The Bad....
Helena Bonham Carter has tapped into a bygone era in this overly costumey morbidly colored black nightmare.  If it's any consolation, she actually looks better than at other award shows.....but then again, that's not much of a compliment.

Marissa Tomei's dress appears to be two sides of a coin fighting for control.  The two different colors don't go together at all, nor do the two different time periods.  The top is strictly eighties with a nineties bottom.  A prom dress gone horribly wrong.

The Ugly....
Nicole Kidman has a great accessory (uhm, hello Keith Urban), but that's all this dress has going for it.  There's way too much going on with the patterns on the front and I can't help but think that Scarlett O'Hara's drapery dress in GWTW looked better than this drapery fiasco.

I remember the good old days when Cate Blanchette was a top dresser.  She's fallen quite a few rungs since then as evidenced by this overly artsy dress with the dart board for a chest (or is it a breast plate?).  Way too much going on at the top and not in a good way.

Far and away the worst.  From the greasy looking mop of hair to the overly-worked bodice of this dress just makes my eyes hurt.  Scarlett Johansson looks like a drowned rat in this sad looking dress and not even the handsomeness of her ex Ryan Reynolds could help her look better.

So there you have it.  My take on the fashions from last night's rather boring telecast.  In a way, I miss Bjork's infamous swan dress and the fun it could've brought to last night's snoozefest.  Even the worst of this year's Oscar Red Carpet didn't reach those lows.  But what do you think?  What were the highs and lows from last night in your opinion?  Please sound off below and join me next Monday for more fashion talk!

  1. Kudos to Mila Kunis for this beautiful lavendar gown. I saw early red carpet coverage on ABC with Tim Gun saying how he loved Cate Blanchet's gown. Oh, well, I think that's just Tim being nice on national television (but there might be a bitch session with Heidi down the road).

    I did love some, some, of the dresses worn by Anne Hathaway, but could have done without some of her hooting and hollering as new presenters were being presented.
