My Oscars fashion picks (and other thoughts)

Inspired by Miss Kitty's post, I've decided to do an Oscars fashion post.

First, I'd like to present the How Old Are You Again? award - jointly won by Demi Moore and Sigourney Weaver.

Can you believe that Demi is 47 and Sigourney is 60???

And these ladies are in the It's nice but not quite 100% category:

I love the print on Rachel McAdams' dress, but I really prefer her as a brunette.  I know she's a natural blonde but ...


My first impression when I saw Amanda Seyfried's photo was that the dress is wearing her.  I find that my opinion on her look varies depending on the angle of the shot and whether she is smiling.  In the picture above I think she's very pretty.  I like the texture of the dress also.

I'm going to disagree with Kitty here because I think Diane Kruger is cute.  She is someone that takes risks in her choices, in this case I think the dress works for her.  And her makeup is just fab.  I'm wondering where Pacey is though.

I do agree with Kitty that SJP is a hot mess.

So, you may ask, what are my picks?

Queen Latifah looks regal in this lilac dress, with perfect makeup and jewellery.

I am not into Twilight at all, and Kirstin Stewart is usually not the best dresser, but I think this gown is lovely on her and it's great to see her smile!  Here's another pic.

And my favourite look of the night is:

Elizabeth Banks.

Just love the dress on her, gorgeous colour.  The headband, earrings and makeup work together perfectly.

In the interest of gender balance, I'll finish the post with a male.

Yes we can drool together ;-)

Photos: and


  1. Demi Moore looked gorgeous.

    So did SJP and Queen Latifa. And Rachel Mc, Maggie G and Sam Worthington.

  2. Nice pics, CG. I am still disagreeing with you on Diane Kruger. It's cute, sure, but is it Oscar red carpet worthy? I stick to my original judgement. Love Elizabeth Banks and Kristen Stewart too - the dress was lovely and I liked that she didn't wear any jewellery. Very her. I liked Queen Latifah's look too - tres polished. Like you I am so-so on Amanda Seyfried - I think it depends on the angle of the shot (the dress can look a little space age) and I think a little more lipstick may have worked - she looks very pale...

  3. Hi there, I've come across your blog via the Vogue forums as I was compiling my own Oscars fashion post.

    I hadn't actually seen Demi Moore's dress in full and it really is gorgeous. Thanks for the final pic of Ryan Reynolds too - hot!

  4. Thanks BuBbles. I was surprised that no one commented on Ryan. He is getting better with age.

  5. I really liked Rachel McAdams' and Diane Kruger's dresses. I think the dress worn by Amanda Seyfried is cut wrong across the bust - if it was sweetheart neck line it would be very pretty indeed. Helen Mirren looked gorgeous as per usual. SJP looked a little bit sick - like she hadn't slept in days.

  6. CTSB - I agree about Amanda, I think she looks overwhelmed in photos when you see the bust line sticking out.

  7. Demi got my vote too, that dress is an absolute dream and I want it soooo bad! Other than that I was pleasantly surprised by Sandra Bullock this year - she looked so gorge, and her hair was glamorous.
    Ryan is hotness. AH!

  8. I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
    more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
