Oscar 2010

Best #1

Best #2 (I know who it is, and I don't care.)

Best #3 (and my favorite)

Worst (If you are this pretty and unbelievably thin, why would you try to look like a homecoming float?)

Good picks! This is random, but I also really liked Mariska Hargitay's navy blue number and Nicole Richie's whole 60s/70s look.

I thought Mariska was really pretty. I think she has the ideal coloring--so goldenly olive. :) I have to challenge you on Nicole Richie though. I thought her dress looked itchy... a little rough to the touch. I guess that's not a design problem so much as a personal problem with fabric textures.

Yeah, I do imagine it being rough, but that's just one price of beauty. I also would never slip a toe into some of the stilettos that grace the red carpet--I just admire the effect.

And I may be in the minority with this opinion, but I'm so torn about Zoe Saldana's purple atrocity. The gold-toned sparkly top half is gorgeous and glamorous and looks amazing with her skin and the delicate lavender below. And those ridiculous deepening colors! They are stunning, and this from a girl who doesn’t love purple. I agree that the mass of pompoms (piƱatas?) around her legs is a deal-breaker, but I would LOVE to see this dress in another life—same bones, different structure.

Touche. Point about the high heels (pun totally intended)taken. Those celebs do indeed squeeze and sacrifice in all sorts of ways for an effect, and comparatively speaking, a little scratchy material is hardly worth mentioning in the discomfort arena. :)

In regards to Zoe's dress, I read somewhere that it was just too much of these three potentially, individually good things. If it had just been the sparkly bodice or just the purple ombre effect or just the pom poms on the dress that it could have been really pretty. It was just the collision of all three things at once that caused most people to have a problem with it.
