Oscar Fashion!

Although the oscar fashion is my favorite of the year, I was a little underwhelmed this year.  Nothing made me completely cringe, but nothing really put me in awe either.  And the show itself was pretty much a snoozer.  So to the fashion...
I really didn't feel like there was anything horrible this year, but here are my least favorites:
Amy Adams.  I really adore her and usually like her sweet style, but no matter how many times I look at this I don't like it.  I really think it was the styling though.  It looked dated and although the jewelry was worth 1.5 million it made it worse.  And with that much dress on a little girl I really wanted her big hair out of the way.  So I will not say WORST, I will just say, could have been SO much better.  
Next Nicole Kidman could wear anything and be stunning and again, I WANTED to like this, but it was just odd.  It kinda looked like it had been draped out of really dramatic hotel ball room curtains.  And when you saw her walk in it it got even weirder.  
This Givenchy worn by Cate Blanchett was interesting I'll give it that and the detailing was gorgeous, but something about the ill-fitting shape in front was just awkward. 

Now the better...
 This Dior dress worn by Sharon Stone is already getting some bad reviews, but I thought it was HOT!  Love it.  Yes, it's serious and has feathers, but it's the Oscars and it's Dior, come on.  
I am usually not a fan of Hillary Swank, however this Gucci dress was stun-ning!  By this point I was beginning to wonder if my TV was black & white (and sparkly) because that's all I was seeing.  But still, this is a gorgeous gown.
We'll call these next ladies the good & the bad.  The good about Gwyneth is she looked ROCKIN on the red carpet in Calvin Klein (left).  The bad news.... she still can't sing.  Thank you for not auto-tuning her.  The truth is she's still a fabulous actress, not a singer.  Why couldn't hubby Chris & the band tell her so?  
 Anne Hathaway was co-host with {the most boring} James Franco.  They were not very entertaining overall, but they did have a lot to live up to.  I mean really- Billy Crystal, Ellen, Whoopi?  They weren't close.  However, the good news is once she got to changing clothes it got a little more enjoyable.  My faves - the blue Armani and the burgundy Versace.
 The best!  
This precious 14 yr old star of True Grit, Hailee Steinfeld.  She helped design this Marchesa gown and said it was exactly what she dreamed of.  Perfection.
And finally.  I am always a fan of her hair and her style.  Mandy Moore.  She was performing a song I'd never heard, but either way, she looked amazing.  First on the red carpet in this Monique Lhuillier dress then performed in this AH-MAZING blue dress, same designer.  LOVE it.  That's something worth watching the Oscars for.

Okay so - I didn't want the Oscars and based on the feedback I'm glad I didn't waste my time! But of course I looked up Oscar fashion the next day - here are my thoughts: Cate Blanchett's dress reminds me of a very fancy chaise or vanity chair from a French boudoir a-la or maybe

I did like Hathaway's Versace, Like Sandra's dress... LOVE Camilla whats-her-face (McConaughey's baby mama), Helen Mirren, LOVED Hailee Steinfeld! That's about it for me!
