Red Carpet Review: Oscars 2014

The Oscars last night were funny and somewhat poignant but WAAAAAAAY too long. We don’t need a montage of “movie heroes” when this thing is running three and a half hours long! C’mon! But there was some good fashion, and actually a real drought of bad fashion! I thought most people looked lovely! Leaves me with less snark, but I still can review, right?

Tied for best dressed has to be Cate Blanchett and Lupita N’yongo (both winners) who looked so gorgeous. Cate is just a freakin’ MOVIE STAR. Look at her! That dress is perfection are the earrings, the hair and makeup. Lupita’s “Nairobi blue” Prada gown was the very best color on the carpet and the cut was magnificent on her. I didn’t love the headband, but I didn’t hate it either.

These two killed it too- Charlize looked incredible and this dress fit beyond perfect. And Sandra picked the ideal color and silhouette for her. Loved her smokey eye too.

THESE TWO. Are you serious? Can they be any hotter? Olivia does pregnancy well, y’all. This 70’s inspired look on her was just amazing, I loved it. And his dark blue tux was the best men’s look of the night, hands down! When did Jason Sudekis become such a stone cold fox?

I thought Julia Roberts looked LUMINOUS- her hair and makeup was simply awesome and I actually loved this dress on her. I’m not crazy about the peplum, but I LOVED the neckline and lace detail!  Karen O’s dress ( I had no idea who she was…) was elegant and retro and super old school Hollywood. Love.

Golden Globes 2014 Red Carpet Recap

I friggin’ love the Golden Globes. Despite the horrid red carpet coverage (more fashion, less inane questions from Seacrest and Rancic pretty please) it was a fun show to watch. If I could go to one awards show in my lifetime it would be this one (can we make that happen universe? Mmmm, thanks.)  The fashion was a fab balance of AWESOME and HORRID, which is my favesies.  Let’s start with the straight up awesome.

Who didn’t gasp when they saw Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren. I mean, she SLAYED it so hard in that dress with the simple jewels. I bet half the celebrities asked if they could just come int he back door after she walked the carpet. Amazing.  And Cate Blanchett is such perfection. This dress is just amazing on her.  Here’s the thing, men don’t “get” Cate Blanchett, Andrew doesn’t think she’s pretty, which makes me think I’ve married a severely mentally questionable person.

Leslie Mann either has amazing style or a seriously awesome stylist. I LOVED her dress, hair and makeup. Gorgeous. And Juliana Margulis was stunning- beyond chic- I loved the silhouette, pattern and her accessories and jewels. Killer.

Amy Poehler’s dress is just awesome- sexy without being over the top and super modern. Loved this look.  And at first I wasn’t sure about Amy Adams’ dress but then she turned around and I loved it.  I wasn’t 100% on the hair, but she really did look pretty and it’s so nice to see her in color.

These two. I mean, can we just discuss how awesome they are? Smart, funny as hell, successful AND beautiful??? I think they are two of the best role models in Hollywood for women.
