Oscars 2012


Did you watch the Oscars last night? I only watched the Red Carpet Live on E! Here are some of my favourite and my not so favourite dresses and make-up!


Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli Dress  

I have to admit sometimes I don't like or "get" Emma's style. This I thought this looked great on her,
Not sure about some people saying "Best Dressed" though! (I will get to mine in a minute) The shape is gorgeous and adding that bow does make it Oscar-ish but red on a red carpet?? Hmmm...


Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

This kind of made me go "meh" its beautiful and she looks beautiful but she always does so it wasn't like Wow! She just looked like her!
Its like at the prom/debs in school, the girls who always look beautiful just look like they always do! Put this dress and make-up on some one we usually see as plain and it would be a wow moment but sorry Ang its a meh! from me.


Kristen Wiig

Okay so Kristen looks lovely but I think the women in purple behind her looks so beautiful, I dunno who she is but when I was watching this live both me and my sister Treena pointed her out as looking better then most on the night, so mystery girl you get the thumbs up from me!! 



Tina Fey inCarolina Herrera

Tina was the only one wearing Carolina Herrera on the night and I do love it, I think its a great pick for her! Strapless seemed to be a running theme and not a necklace in sight! Some of the dresses kind of needed a necklace but I think it would have made Tina's dress too fussy. 


Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad.    
Love Jen in this! The long sleeves were also a trend on the night but the cut outs give it a sexy "showing some skin" look unlike Shailene Woodley, the girl from The Descendants who covered up head to toe (Which I think was a nice change others didn't)

Oh I also have to add I LOVE Jen's make-up!! Tutorial me thinks...

Viola Davis in Vera Wang  

I loved the colour on her, not too sure about the old cleavage on show maybe a bit too much! Other then that I loved the dress, the colour and the accessories. 


 Penelope Cruz in Giorgio Armani dress   
 I love love love this!! It kind of reminds me of the dress Demi Lovato wore at the 2011 ALMA. I would love to see this dress in a nude pink but blue is gorgeous too! If I was young again and going to my debs I would have wore some thing like this! (If The Moderne in Cork had some thing like it! lol) 
As for the hair and make-up well its my favourite on the night! LOVE!

Fashion's Biggest Night: The Oscars 2012

 Hollywood's most important night of 2012. when it comes to movie and fashion industry is certainly The Oscars. On this evening we find out who are the best actors and actresses, who is the new style icon, who is n0.1 designer of the 2012, which couture designs are the most desirable at the moment and so on. This year there are some newly discovered stars such as Rooney Mara, and some fash surprises: Maria Menounos, who looks better than ever in a mint green grecian gown, Stacy Keibler in a gold Marchesa gown, Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab gown completed by a slick Edie Parker clutch and lots of diamonds.

Although medias are joking that the most famous womanizer George Clooney brought his own Oscar statue,  there's no joke when we say that this golden girl is one of the hottest girls at The Oscars.

"My week with Marilyn" star and Oscar nominee Michelle Williams wore a red Louis Vuitton gown, and we now understand why she got that flattering role: Michelle is almost as pretty and sexy as Marilyn herself! 
E! television reporter Giuliana Rancic looked fashionable as always: she wore a bejeweled nude gown by Tony Ward and a perfect bun. 



Penelope Cruz wore a stunning Giorgio Armani gown with a fitted bodice, while Cameron Diaz looked fabulous in a nude Gucci gown matched with Tiffany & co. jewelry worth almost 1 million dollars! Angelina Jolie was in a black Atelier dress and no jewelry. Too simple for this gala event.

Berenice Bejo in Elie Saab

Louise Roe in the structured Black Halo design
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara was too much dramatic in an art-deco gown by Givenchy, very pale, with some serious bangs and bloody red lipstick

Our favorites were Maria Menounos, J.Lo, Rachel Smith, Penelope Cruz and Emma Stone who was all glammed up in a red Giambattista Valli. This girl is officially our new style icon!

Emma Stone

 Miss Lopez is no longer Jenny From The Block, and this Zuhair Murad backless gown proves it! She had Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, an elegant bun, smokey eye makeup, neutral nude lips and accentuated cheek bones. This woman can never go wrong!




 Meryl Streep was ladylike in a gold Lanvin gown matched with a mini clutch, while Gwyneth Paltrow rocked a white Tom Ford dress.

Sandra Bullock in Marchesa
Maria Menounos in Maria Lucia Hohan
Kelly Osbourne
Rachel Smith

Anna Farris looks much older in this black Diane von Furstenberg all-covered gown, doesn't she? The long bob doesn't suit her quite the best.


Sarah Hyland in Alberta Ferretti
Melanie Griffith & Antonio Banderas
Kelly Ripa in Carolina Herrera

Rose Byrne wore a black sequined gown by Vivienne Westwood . Jessica Chastain looked gorgeous in Alexander McQueen matched with Harry Winston jewelry. She brought her grandma as a date, which gives her some extra points!

Penelope Ann Miller in Badgley Mischka
Prince Albert & Princess Charlene of Monaco

Kristen Wiig in J.Mendel
Kate Mara in Jack Guisso

Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera

Busy Phillips in Dolce & Gabbana
The worst dressed? Definitely Viola Davis, Sandra Bullock and Anna Faris with wrong hairstyle and dress.
Busy Phillips and young Sarah Hyland left us indifferent.

Viola Davis in Vera Wang

Bingbing Li in Georges Chakra Couture

Ellie Kemper in Armani Prive

Missi Pyle in Valentina Delfino

Nancy O'Dell in Chagoury Couture

Shailene Woodley in Valentino Couture
Dominating trends? All shades of nude, backless dresses and sequins, even though sequin embellished outfits don't look good on everyone.

Post your own thoughts: who was the best and who was the worst dressed this year?
