The Oscars 2011 - The Dresses and The Beauties

Last night was the first night I've watched the Oscars since the year Titanic was nominated. Back then, it consisted of fancy people in fancy clothes and trying to name as many people as could before the background music starts playing to shoo them off the stage, and Nicole Kidman's un-moving 8 inch forehead. From what I saw yesterday it really hasn't changed. Except this time I was doped up on cough medicine which made it more bearable especially when watching Anne Hathaway trying to audition for Glee in a tuxedo and predicted people winning predicted stuff- where is Esperanza Spalding when you need an award hijacker?!

Here are some dresses from last night. Halle Berry looked amazing and Mila Kunis looked gorgeous as usual while Cate Blanchett dressed like the spokesperson for NuvaRing and Helena Bonham Carter looked like one of Count Dracula’s concubines, and I don’t expect anything less from her. Which one was your favourite?

  3. Mila is wearing the best dress, well at least my favorite. Also, I'm loving Halle Berry's dress too... but maybe that's because she looks beautiful in everything. Hope you feel better soon!

  14. Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman looked gorgeous! I love how Scarlet almost always wears a dress that shows off her curves. Hey if you got it flaunt it ^_^ You made me chuckle at the nuva ring joke..haha

  15. it boggles my mind that all the papers are saying cate was best dressed... you got it right with your nuvaring comment! it was AWFUL!

  16. Some nice dresses. Scarlet's purple dress wins it for me, closely followed by Natalie's.

  18. I loved Michelle Williams, Halle Berry and all of Anne Hathaway's dresses she wore during the show. I wasn't a huge fan of Cate Blanchette's dress...

    ReplyDelete
  19. For the 1st time ever I didn't like Mila's dress... I don't know, I found the color was washing her away or something... I would have liked to see a more vibrant color.

    Natalie was my favorite :) Love that color on her!

  20. i love anne hathaways dress im loving the red!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Michelle Williams looks gorgeous. The other actresses looked beautiful too, but there's something about Michelle's Mia Farrow haircut, radiant makeup, and that fitted high-necked sheath--every element of her look works together.

  22. Has anyone seen Halle Berry ever NOT looking good on the red carpet? Year after year, she always look gorgeous!

  24. Never realised there were so many flesh-coloured,sequinned gowns till I saw your post.

  25. I watched the Oscars live last night for the first time. I loved the show. I heard people criticized James Franco for being a lousy host, but I liked him. I had some good laughs watching this, especially when the F word was dropped on air :))
    I actually liked Cate Blanchett's dress, but I guess it's the type of dress you either love or hate.

  26. I liked Mila's dress too.:D

    Your NuvaRing comment made me laugh so hard! Oh my gosh... :D

    I hope you are feeling better now.:D

  27. Hahahaha...oh, I mean, tsk, tsk, tsk! :D

    I never care how Halle looks, I don't like her. I wish she would offer to sleep with me so I could say no thanks. Or would it punish her more if I said yes? Hmmmm, no, doesn't matter, I'd still have to just say no.

    Mila looked great...and I liked Hathaway in the silver, sparkly dress...well, I liked the dress.

    RE your madonna tweet, I'm sure her kid understands. She knows her mom is not going to be 60 forever, she might as well show off her bod while she still can. Oh no, now I'M sick too.

    I hope you feel better soon!

  28. Halley was working that dress! Not gonna lie, I can't wait to see the FASHION POLICE with Joan Rivers on the E! channel! They are gonna go off on some folks!

  29. Mila and Michelle all the way! Sigh, Halle Berry can basically wear anything.

  30. I'm going to go out a limb here and admit that I loved Cate Blanchett's dress- it was beautiful with a unique spin on it!

  35. Eh, was I the only one that didn't really like Anne Hathaway's gown? Red is flattering I just feel like red + red carpet is a little overwhelming. Love Mila Kunis gown though, the lavendar is so gorgeous I need to go tan pronto.

  42. I liked Mila's dress a lot and most of the others you have posted. I watched the oscars for the first maybe ever.

  43. I like the choice of dresses you chose out. I liked Halle's dress the most too. Yeah...Helena Bonham Carter's dress is a bit out there and I'm not a huge fan of (what is that?) velvet. I'm not too crazy about Hillary Swank's feather dress but I guess you gotta try to be different a bit once in awhile if you're in Hollywood.
