Oscars 2014 Fashion Police

Yay! The Oscars! I meant to do a post about who I wanted to win each of the main awards, but I didn't. I also meant to see all 9 pictures nominated for Best Picture with Allison, but we didn't. I got 7 of 9, and given I didn't watch a movie in all of 2013 until roughly November, I would say that's pretty good!

So real's who I wanted to win:
Best Supporting ActressLupita Nyong'o
Best Supporting Actor: Jared Leto
Best Actress: Judi Dench
Best Actor: Matthew McConaughey/Chiwetel Ejiofor
Best Picture: Dallas Buyers Club/12 Years a Slave

Now...onto the fashion!

Mario Lopez
I had to include this picture because, for once, his pants aren't too tight!

Kristen Bell
I think she looks amazing for having a young baby, but this dress doesn't do it for me. 

Olivia Wilde
Meh. You can't even see her bump {Ladies, HUG THE BUMP} and then there's weird darting or something at her boobs? 

Amy Adams
Flawless. My only thing is I think I would have done a necklace instead of earrings. 

Laura Dern
 As my friend Laura used to say, she's got arm tacos. SO unflattering.

Julie Delpy
There were A LOT of dresses like this tonight.
This one was not one I liked. I don't like the weird netting around her arms. 

Idina Menzel
I love Idina. LOVE.
But... 1) SMILE. You are at the Oscars. and 2) Lipstick.

John Legend
It is not appropriate that a man can be as talented as John Legend AND look this good in a tux. 

Naomi Watts
This was just blah to me. It didn't really seem to fit quite right? And the length is weird - I don't like seeing just her toes? Creepy. 

June Squibb
I had to include the one bright spot from Nebraska 

Jared Leto
I'm not really a fan of the white tuxedo jacket normally.
But it kind of fits him I think.

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
1. This looks better than Naomi Watts. 2. She is still to skinny. 

Steve Coogan
You guys know I hate weird fitting pants. 
Dudes, you have it so easy. Shower, shave, make sure tux fits appropriately. 

Glenn Close
I feel like this fits well, but I don't like the fabric. It's too heavy. 

Jessica Biel
Coming from a fair-skinned girl with dark hair, I just have to say this - 
you don't wear this pale of a color against pale skin. It fits her amazingly, but it just sort of all blends in.

Bette Midler
We didn't have any red this year! I love Bette! 

Kerry Washington
I'd like a little more bump hugging but she has redeemed herself from the SAG awards! 

Cate Blanchett
Nope. Don't get it and don't like it. What is attached to her dress? did look better on TV than it does in pictures. I'll give her that.

Sarah Paulson
Sarah, see my comments to Idina and Jessica above. 

Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth
If I was having twins by Chris Hemsworth I would be showing that bump off all the time. But I stand corrected in my 'hug the bump' rule. The one caveat - don't make it look like a beer belly please. 

Margot Robbie
Wow. Shocking transformation. And too harsh. Dark hair and eyebrows for a movie, fine. But let's not also do a dark dress and dark lips. 

Jennifer Lawrence
She and Amy Adams remind me of each other. Solid color, perfect fit, little bit of peplin. But she looks amazing, and I love that each of her dresses this year were very different. 

Charlize Theron
I thought she looked amazing. 

Anne Hathaway
I was hoping for redemption after last year but alas, no. 

Emma Roberts
The pictures of this don't do the dress justice. It looked much prettier on TV. I really liked it!

Kate Hudson
I don't really get the shoulder thing but barring that {and a little more hemming}, she looks great! 

Julia Roberts
This was a little bit different I thought and I really liked it! It was a similar shape as some others {Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence} but the fabric makes it softer and I really like the lace.

Leonardo DiCaprio
Whew. He looks good. 

Meryl Streep
I think I would faint if she ever wore something I did like that actually looked like a red carpet dress. 

Jennifer Garner
This was another one I liked better on TV. Seeing her move in it, I really liked it. I didn't really like the straps but other than that she looks great. 

Bradley Cooper

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum
 Him - A+, Her - B+

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
This is the best they have looked {IMO} in years.
I really love her dress, and they look flawless.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
I am kind of indifferent to this. Although I don't like his weird non-tie. 

Penelope Cruz
Too much fabric. 

Jeremy Renner
His tux looks too small. 

Christian Bale and Sibi Blazic
He always looks good, and she always wears black. #predicatblebutnice 

John Stamos
He is FIFTY. 

Lady Gaga
Even when she isn't trying to look weird, she looks weird. 

 Alfre Woodard
 Holy cleavage and peeking toes.

Anna Kendrick
I don't like this. 

Benedict Cumberbatch
A new favorite! 

Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sari Mercer
Another new favorite 

Chrissy Teigen
 I didn't like this on TV but like it now?

Kristin Chenoweth
She is too little for such a busy dress. 

Liza Minelli
Wow. This is so wrong on so many levels. 

Lupita Nyong'o
I love the dress. LOVE IT. But I hate the headband. HATE IT. 

Matthew and Camila McConaughey
I don't really like capes. But they look amazing together. 

Michael Fassbender
Man, I HATED his character in 12 Years a Slave. But he cleaned up nice for tonight. 

Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh

Portia DeRossi
Different but fun especially given she was just there as a date. 

Viola Davis
I love the color but don't like the fit.

Michael Strahan and Kelly Ripa
I just had to put them together. His tux is WEIRD and she is too skinny. Like looks-like-a-little-boy too skinny. They both need help!

Worst Dressed
Sally Hawkins
This doesn't fit. The fabric is too heavy for her frame {and looks like an old lady's bedspread}. It's too pale against her skin. Wrong, wrong,wrong. 

Best Dressed
Sandra Bullock
I love everything about how she looks. Her hair, makeup, earrings, the dress fits her perfectly. Everything.

So what did you think? Did you watch the show or red carpet?

Ha! "I don't really like capes" Of course I didn't watch the red carpet - I just wait for your recap! 7 out of 9. We'll get 'em next year! -AP

Well since we chatted during some of the show :) but your WTF comment had me rolling!!! And yea Kelly Ripa needs to eat a hamburger or maybe 20!

Kelly said...

You know I LIVE for these posts of yours! ha! First I have so many comments!!

1. Kelly Ripa...Ew. She looks scary bad being that skinny. Very 12 year old boyish.

2. I love Jennifer Lawrence. She looks amazing.

3. I liked Jared Leto too...not usually a big fan of white jackets either but this worked on him.

4. Not a fan of all the cream colored dresses. I agree that unless you have tan skin tone you just can't pull it off no matter how famous you are!

Stephanie Faris said...

OMG, that is the worst baby bump display I've seen in my life. No exaggeration.

What was with all the skin-toned dresses this year? I liked Cate Blanchett's, but I like a little color.

Karen M. Peterson said...

So many beautiful gowns. Sandra was in my best dressed too.

The guys probably looked good in their tuxes at one point in the evening. It was also probably ruined waiting on a woman to get ready! - B
