Did You Watch?

Did you watch The Academy Awards last night?  Of course you did!  We all watch and wait with baited breath to see...who is wearing whom!  And  then we get  to pick them  apart  piece by piece.  It may not be right,  but it sure is fun.  So  let's  begin...

Carey Mulligan
I love her hair!  It's so cute and pixie like.  Perhaps the earrings were a bit much, but the dress is lovely.  I would like to have seen less earring and maybe a simple necklace.  Overall tho, she looks lovely.

Diane Kruger
This dress is a mess.  I think it would be better if it simply flowed from the waist.  I do not like the separation of the dress and the way it cuts her up.  She has a nice shape and the designer ruined it...and the dress.
Miley Cyrus
Miley. Miley. Miley.  From the waist down, your dress is beautiful.  But then, you told the designer to stop before she finished.  My girls loved her dress, and while it was a far cry better than last years wedding cake disaster, I really think there should have been more coverage up top.  Maybe that is why she is slouching so badly.  She felt she would pop out if she stood tall and proud.

Anna Kendrick
Forgive me Anna, for I know not who you are, but I do like your dress.  It's lovely(I heart this word) but don't be shy, get bold!  Go bright!  I'm Anna Kendrick!  

Cameron Diaz
As Kristin said, "She looks nothing like an ogre!"  She looks fabulous.  Her hair is gorgeous, and her dress is glamorous.  

Charlize Theron
Yes, Charlize, we know.  You have breasts.  Thanks.  Epic Fail.

Demi Moore
Demi presented the in memory of portion of the Oscars.  I thought it was rather touching.  (I also loved the Brat Pack tribute to John Hughes!) I actually like 1/2 of her dress.  The bottom.  The top looks like something that goes on a mummy.  And another sloucher! Sigh.

Hellen Mirren
Class, style and elegance.  She oozes with all three in the best possible way.

J.Lo...ummm....there is a dress attached to your dress.  Pardon?  Seriously?  Wow.  Okay.  I still say it looks like a second dress.

Elisabetta Canalis
You are on the arm of perhaps one of THE most sexiest men alive, and you're wearing a dress that looks rumpled at best.  And don't get me started on the bust.  I'll go with you next year George.  I'll do you proud.  ;)

Meryl Streep
Class, elegance and beauty again!  She received some flack for "posing."  (The hand on the hip) and she is "Meryl Streep" she doesn't need to pose.  Well she is Meryl Streep and she can pose if she darn well wants to!  You are class and elegance!

Nicole Richie
Are you wearing an afghan?

Sandra Bullock
I love LOVE this dress.  And I love her hair.  She also received from flack for wearing it down.  I say it adds to the simplicity of her look.  She scored on the red carpet and with her win!  Way to go, Sandra!

I wanted to do sooo much more....if you want to see more you can go here.  I love to pick apart the celebs as they prance walk the red carpet.  Maybe it is because I don't get to tell a fabulous designer to make a dress especially for me.  Wouldn't that be grand?  Well I can't send you to any of their designers, but I can offer a giveaway for MikaRose!

Bravo! This isn't a giveaway entry because well, I already follow and have a button etc. But I agree with you on each dress! But then I live in sweats :)

Linda said...

Thanks for the commentary. I agree with you %100 on all your pick-aparts. What is with the slouches? Have they not heard of osteoperosis?!?! I guess they can afford to slouch. And in my house Anna Kendrick's claim to fame is "Jessica" from the Twilight movies. I will be checking out MikaRose. Thanks!

Emmy said...

Yes seriously so many slouches! And I hate the flower/boob dress, ugh.

And this will by my first entry, so I LOVE that the dressed actually cover up top, don't have to worry about anything popping out. They cover on top and are long enough, let's just say HEAVEN!

Emmy said...

I follow your blog of course. Hoping I win... though I just used my own code to get Alex some dresses, I need one for myself too :)

Emmy said...

Rachel said...

I loved reading your comments about their dresses. I totally agree!

too funny!

I love the dresses at MikaRose because there are ones that are long enough to even be modest for my LONG legs!

CJ Sime said...

Yay! I would love to win!!!

My favorite dress is the alexia in black. of course I love all of it.

CJ Sime said...

I subscribe. Does that count for following?

CJ Sime said...

I love the classic crisp look of all the clothes. all the styles look fresh enough to not go out of style in a couple seasons.

(I have a bad habit of getting excited about things and not reading details. My first entry just said the dress I would buy not why I like mikarose. Sorry for cluttering your comment section with my meaningless ramblings.)

Kekster's Palace said...

i think the worst dress on there was J.Lo's

KK said...

Super cute clothes! I'm going to be looking for new clothes soon.

KK said...
