Apologies if there is already an existing thread, my slow internet connection today didn't reveal one, but please merge if there is.

Thought I'd put my thoughts out on the dresses of today's Oscars Red Carpet original.gif
I've been following them on The Age's website.

I loved Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock - all absolutely stunning!

Also quite like Naomi Watts and Catherine Zeta Jones - although in the background of her picture there is another woman pulling the most hilarious face! Looks similar to Kim Cattrall? Whoever it is, maybe they thought they be the only one there in a gold dress?!

Jennifer Hudson also looked beautiful - she has lost quite a lot of weight I think.


Hugh Jackman & Deborra-Lee Furness win my best looking couple award again - so gorgeous together.


Wasn't sure what to make of Halle Berry's dress though! Nice to have something different to the strapless mermaid-tail style, but this dress was a little stripey and square!

I normally like Halle Berry's style but I thought her dress was awful! Kind of like she was channelling Alexis Carrington out of Dynasty ....wasn't really a fan of Nicole, Naomi or Reese either ...

No stand outs at all for me this year I'm afraid!

Just reading an as-it-happens article from the Guardian and the comment on Halle's dress:

QUOTE
Um, what? What the hell is going on here, then? Halle Berry, clearly one of the most gorgeous women to ever stand on God's green earth, and generally a dead cert when it comes to red carpet fashion, has come dressed as - what? David Bowie? An ordnance survey map? A nightmare from the 80s? Zool from Ghostbusters? An art deco hell hole? And what on earth is going on with Halle's hair? No, I say. No, no and thrice no. (HF)

I like Naomi Watts, Sally Field, Jessica Chastain and Reese Witherspoon.

Fun, fun!

Jennifer Garner's hair looked crappy by the time she got to the stage wink.gif . More hairspray needed there!

Her dress was gorgeous tho.

I love Deborra-Lee Furness and the fact she doesn't have to let it all hang out or show off her curves, to feel comfortable and look good.

The photo of Channing Tatum kissing his pregnant wife(who looked gorgeous) was so cute.

I really liked Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lawrence (her face looks immaculate!) and Jennifer Aniston.

Quvenzhane Wallis is very cute in her gorgeous Georgio Armani gown with matching shoes (according to Business Insider. Another site [The Daily Beast] states it was designed by David Meister)

I imagine having Hugh Jackman hanging off your arm does wonders for that, must try it sometime...

Apparently Halle Berry told Donatella Versace she wanted to dress like a Bond girl for the Oscars, and this was the dress she came up with!

I think I'd have gone for something else, lol. It doesn't say 'Bond girl' to me!

Glad to see that Helena Bonham Carter has stuck to her usual style of looking like an unmade bed.  She's my hero.  tthumbs.gif

Sandra Bullock looks the goods too.  I love her.

I'm the odd one out, I love Halle's dress. I'm so over the same cut in different colours on ever single actress, I was craving something different and Halle has certainly delivered!

I do ADORE one gold dress in particular ... now who was it? *my brain is now filled with frocks!*

ETA: Catherine Zeta Jones. Just gorgeous!

Anyone else think Anne Hathaways dress is more of a miss than a hit?

Best dressed to me is all the Jennifer's (Garner, Hudson & Lawrence)!

Agree. The front's blah and the back's a mess. I like the soft pink usually, not sure it's right for her though.

Hmmmm yes I did think that AH was a miss.  Although she does have an amazing ability to wear the most amazing red lipstick!  
Loved Sandra Bullock.

Who did the presenting with Channing Tatum?  She should fire her plastic surgeon.  Edited.....no wasn't with Channing.  Not sure who they were tbh!  I am getting old.....who are some of these people!

Adore Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck together.  They seem so...normal.  They are attractive in a very natural way.

I thought this dress was very pretty, but then, its my favourite colour and velvet is just so damn luxurious!




Does anyone know how you pronounce "Quvenzhane"?  Is it like kew-ven-zaanie?

Yes. One pic I saw had the point of the darts in the bust area looking awfully nipple-pointy. Kind of distracted from the rest! One comment I read said something like 'Thanks for the blinding nipples, now I can't see anything else' lol!

This dress would have looked far more elegant with more coverage over the chest, but I guess that defeats the purpose?   rolleyes.gif

Sandra bullocks dress was my favourit.

Heaps of silvers and gold with  structured shapes going on. Not something I am a fan of.


Helen's hunts dress looks like it is and old bridesmaid dress salvaged from a vinnies bin!

#22 9ferals

Peanut, I just want to grab that dress and hoik it up to where it (presumably) should be sitting.  It looks like it isn't a good enough fit and gravity is winning.

Really wish that Hugh Jackman would have a shave, not a fan of the beard at all.

Since this is EB after all I think pregnant Georgina Chapman looked simply beautiful. Best in show.

Helen Hunt also needed an iron.

Not convinced about George Clooney's beard either.
