Oscars Red Carpet Wrap-Up

Lots of hits, not many misses on the red carpet today for the Oscars.

Some of my favorites:

I'm not sure what I think of Nicole Kidman's dress. Helen Mirren always looks nice. Halle Berry looks ethereal. Here's a photo of Natalie's dress. [More...]

Strangest outfit was worn by a male.

One of the few misses: Melissa Leo. Another: Reality tv star Giuliana Rancic. Helen Bonham Carter looked better than at the Golden Globes, but still a bit strange. Reese Witherspoon's dress seemed dated. (Added: Cate Blanchett's dress was awful. It looked like a bib or something out of the Sound of Music.)

Handsome: Justin Timberlake, Robert Downey, Jr.

Very pretty: Melania Trump.

Looking radiant: Annette Bening and Warren Beatty and new parents Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem.

Who did I miss and who were your faves?

    At first I didn't like Nicole's dress (none / 0) (#1)

    But on second look full length I did. I think it depends on the angle they shoot it from.

    I like those wine colored dresses like Natalie Portman's and Penelope Cruz.  I want to know how Penelope achieved that razor straight line cleavage effect. Kind of mesmerizing.

    always.  Even as Storm in the X-Men.

    I am still in awe of her appearance for her 2002 Oscar win.

    I like her style, whatever she does.  She's an outrageous original.

    Scarlett Johansson.  I didn't know it was possible for her to look that bad.  Granted, she still looked 1000% better than most people would, just by showing up, but I thought her outfit was pretty terrible.

    I loved Gwynneth's dress and Halle Berry of course was stunning.  Another hit I thought was Mila Kunis.

    Javier Bardem looked like he put on a little sympathy weight, but as my friend said it's "happy fat" and both he and penelope looked radiant and gorgeous enough to pull off any excess chin.

    Melissa Leo's dress.  I have a tablecloth that looks a whole lot like that.  Maybe she was channeling Scarlet O'Hara, but instead of a dress made out of curtains, she had one made out of a tablecloth.
