Red Carpet Round Up & Oscars Moments

Well, in case you live under a rock, the Oscars were last night. Man, there were some hilarious moments and some not-so-hilarious moments. Below is my re-cap of the Oscar Best and Worst dressed followed by some fave Oscar moments.

Best Dressed List

Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen

Stunning. Just stunning. Hair & makeup are flawless and the dress is regal. A+++!

Jessica Chastain in Giorgio Armani

I'm gonna go ahead and give her the award for Most Improved. I do love this dress with her beautiful pale skin and red hair. I must say the fit of this dress is SO much better than the blue disaster at the Golden Globes.

Reese Witherspoon in Louis Vuitton

I mean, I love me some Reese ANYWAY, so I was so glad she glammed it up tonight. This color is amazing on her and her hair & makeup are on point. Get it, girl!

Naomi Watts in Giorgio Armani

This dress fits her to a "t"! She looks awesome and elegant. I love that she's not trying too hard. She makes the simplest of dress cuts look stunning. I also love the unexpected neckline. Also, the hair and makeup (which must be awesome as well to be included on my Best Dressed list) are gorgeous!

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture

This is quite an interesting dress. It's more peachy-blushy pink on tv than it looks in this photo. It looks more white here. However, I think she's made some excellent dress choices recently. Despite her age, she's proven herself to have great style and great taste when it comes to these events.

Honorable Mentions
Kristin Chenoweth: I loved that her dress made her look very tall, but I wish she would have been a bit more adventurous with the color.
Jennifer Aniston: The color was gorgeous. I wish she'd done something to her hair. Other than that she looked great!

Worst Dressed List

Brandi Glanville in Unknown

Um, Brandi...lock those girls up. I don't hate the bottom of the dress, but the top looks more Moulin Rouge appropriate than red carpet.

Naomie Harris in Unknown

This dress isn't THAT bad (sans the slit that's WAY too high) but the color is awful. It totally washes her out.  Maybe some red lips would have warmed up the whole look but this just makes her look sick. And her toes are hanging over her shoes. Oh man. (shakes head)

Melissa McCarthy in David Meister Signature

I love this lady. For reals. She's hilar!! However, this look is all wrong for her. The dress itself isn't that bad, but she suffers from the same syndrome as my pick before...the color is just boring and bland. I would love this so much more if it were a bright color. Also, her hair is unfortunate. I would have liked to see it up or a little more modern and sleek. Big hair on her just doesn't work.

Dishonorable Mentions
Helena Bonham Carter: To be fair, she ALWAYS looks like a train wreck so it's kind of expected that her and/or her hubby make it to the worst dressed list. 
Fan Bingbing: The color of the dress isn't bad but the fit looks too much like a Project Runway mistake. And, by the way, who the heck is this? This can't be a real name?!

Memorable Oscar Moments
Seth MacFarlane's opening sequence | Anne Hathaway's beautiful quote at the end of her acceptance speech | Jennifer Hudson bringing the house down with her performance (love her!) | Most of  The Avengers cast presenting an award | JLaw's fall and acceptance speech. I love her!!! | The musical performances from Les Mis cast members | Charlize, Channing, Joseph & Daniel's dance sequences!!

Agree with my picks? Disagree? I'd love to hear what you think!!

Linking up with Meg for the Mingle Monday Blog Hop! :)


  1. I'm not crazy about Naomi Watts' dress. I was glad to see that most of the dresses were breath takingly beautiful or completely hideous. There weren't many where I just wasn't sure what to think.
    I also loved Anne Hathaway's dress and really did not like Amy Adams' grey thing.

  2. I really want to pull up Brandi's dress. It seems like the top is just too short. Melissa, oh boy, what a hot mess.

  3. I thought that number one bad dress was TSwift. I'm glad you clarified.

    Thanks for the recap. I just youtubed all your favorite moments so now I feel caught up.

    I really wish Anne Hathaway didn't always irk me. I really really do.

    1. Amie, you should Youtube Seth MacFarlane's "We Saw Your Boobs" song. It was hilar. But I didn't want to put it on my post to risk me being thought of as obscene.

  4. Stopping by from Mingle Monday! My favorite was Naomi's dress...I honestly wasn't impressed with the dresses this year, I thought they were a little boring! If Brandi's dressed was pulled up a little more and you couldnt see her tata's I would have loved it (I might be biased bc I love her)

    Cute blog!
