I skipped the Oscars Sunday night (too tired), but I was really eager to see all of the gorgeous dresses come Monday morning. I eagerly turned on my computer and started flipping through slideshows of the red carpet, waiting for the slew of really jaw-dropping gowns that I knew just had to be hiding in there somewhere.
I’m still looking for them.
Truthfully, this year’s Oscar fashions sucked. I wasn’t feeling the plethora of nude gowns–they made most of the actresses look really washed out, and after a while they all just blended together. Also blah were the capes (Jada Pinkett Smith, Camilla Alves). And as much as I wanted to love the dresses on Elsa Pataky (aka Mrs. Thor) and Olivia Wilde, they both looked insanely uncomfortable–not to mention there was something weird going on in the boob area on both dresses.
Other offenders: Anna Kendrick and Ireland Baldwin seemed to be wearing dresses that didn’t know what they wanted to be. So many were just boring, like Meryl Streep and Emma Watson. And some were just harsh on the eyes: Gabourey Sidibe and Chirssy Teigen both looked like they were wearing prom cast-offs, not red carpet gowns.
With all of that said, I did see a few winners, so I thought I’d share them here!! Read more (and see pics) after the jump! And don’t forget to swing by Alyssa’s blog to link up for Ten on Tuesday!
1. Lupita Nyong’o in Prada. Of course I knew she’d knock it out of the park!
