I really like the color of Jessica Alba's dress but I don't like the design. I realize she is pregnant and so her choices are somewhat limited. I do think her hair and makeup are really pretty. The dress reminds me of the 20 other like it (below) that have been floating around in different lengths and colors, though this one has evolved into feathers on the bodice instead of roses. Oh, and one another thing I dislike, as you can see better on tv, she basically has no top on.
Adding to the problem, Cameron Diaz continues to do this messy, bed head look. I think it is really fun every once in awhile. I am not denying that she is able to have really dirty, perfectly messy hair on any occasion, however, she keeps doing it over and over again.
Some may disagree and I understand, but I really dislike this dress! The feathers everywhere scare me and I don't particularly love the draping. It would make any normal person look horribly disfigured, but then that is why normal people are not on the red carpet. I do think the color is pretty on her. I dislike the hair.
My complaint with Ellen Page is the same I had at the SAG awards. She looks lovely and dignified and cute, but I wish she would inject a little color and interest into the outfit! On other occasions she dresses so hip! I like the drop waist in the dress and the necklace, but imagine the dress in any other color! A deep green or a blue perhaps. Anything! She was up for an Oscar and could have been accepting the award onstage. I just thought she could have come up with something more fun- as she has in the past at other events.
Katherine Heigl looks very refined in this dress. I love the details on the shoulder. Her makeup, however, is so bad! I think she is wearing a self tanner with an inch thick of bronzer followed by a lot of blush. It is confusing and scary- especially with the red from her lips and dress.
Stars like to dress up "Old Hollywood" as she did, upon occasion. I have a hard time buying it with this girl, because I clearly remember watching two of her Disney shows and I will forever think of her as Alexia Wheaton in "Wish Upon a Star". It is truly a classic. In the movie, Katherine's character and her sister hate one another and get struck by lightening or something and end up switching places. They are each in their other sister's body. One sister then tries to make the other one gain weight, the other one tries to get tattoos and piercings. It is a riot! I included a video:
Another favorite is "My Father the Hero". Katherine's character is on vacation with her French dad and she meets a guy that she likes. She tries to make him jealous by pretending that her dad is her boyfriend! You can only imagine the shenanigans! Wait 'til you see who the dad is!!
I love Jennifer Hudson's hair and makeup. She is so beautiful. I also like a lot of things about her dress. I like the color, the details, the length, the skirt, the neckline, however, there is one thing horribly wrong with it. Look at the picture below:
From far away, I like her look. I love the color of the dress and the draping and folds along the bodice. The color really is quite regal.
When you get close up, though, the sleeves kind of bother me. They are a little too ice capades for me. The sleeves are made of Swarovsky diamonds, supposedly, so maybe that is supposed to make using see through netting on evening wear okay. I think she looks lovely overall, but I am not a fan of the sleeves!
Now for the dresses I like!
Heidi's dress is beautifully dramatic and I love the collar and train.
I think the volume that her hair creates is really pretty with that neckline. She just looks elegant and classy.
I love the color and detail on this woman's dress. Matthew and I found this beautiful, white Christmas garland just after Christmas and the detailing in her dress reminds me of it, but in a good way! The top is very low and very revealing. If not for that, this one might have been one of my top three favorites. Her hair and makeup are perfect. I do buy into her Old Hollywood hair and makup.
This girl look so pretty! What an age appropriate dress! The color is so unique and looks great on her. She looks like a Jane Austen maiden, but modern.
This is a cool dress. The neckline is so fun! The color combination of the navy and green and metallic is fun. She looks so great!
This awards show is the first time I have ever gotten the Jennifer Garner thing. This is the first time I think she looks really attractive. I love the dress. The picture does not do it justice. We saw it in HD and it is amazing.
What really made the look though was her hair and makeup. She has such harsh features with her jawline and and cheekbones and she always seems to make it more harsh by pulling her hair all back and wearing low v-neck dresses (below). This time she softened it up with face framing bangs and a necklace. The cleaveage is still out of control with the corset look, but at least she is not showing that nasty under-boob cleavage that freaks me out. She looks amazing!
And now for my 3 absolute FAVORITES:
This is Rosamund Pike who played Jane Bennett in the new Pride and Prejudice from last year. This dress is so unique and architectual. I love it! The color is so nice on her. She often dresses fun and ladylike. I really like her style.
I LOVE this dress on Anne Hathaway. The coloring and cut are perfect on her. Her hair and makeup are also perfect. She just looks so beautiful and amazing!
Second best moment of the night:
These two were nominated for Best Song from the movie "Once". They won and went up to the stage to accept the award. The guy makes his speech and then when the girl goes to speak, she gets cut off by the music... watch the video:
