The Oscars: Fashion, Cleavage and Pizza

I'm not going to talk about who was "Best" and "Worst" Dressed at the Oscars because that's kind of mean but I will highlight some of my favorite dresses and my not-so-favorite. That's better, right? ; ) I loooooved Cate Blanchett's gorgeous Armani Prive nude gown with Swarovski crystals, she looked so elegant in it. Her whole look - dress, hair and makeup - was definitely my favorite. Sandra Bullock's sleek and stunning Alexander McQueen dress was perfection and Kate Hudson showed off her figure in a beautiful, unique, caped, silk Versace dress.

You may be surprised to hear this but I wasn't a huge fan of Charlize Theron's Dior gown, the straps kind of reminded me of flames but she still looked gorgeous and wore the heck out of it. I didn't care much for Lady Gaga's strapless, flashy, metallic, mermaid Versace dress either, or her scarf/shawl which she should have left at home. And I didn't know where to look on Anna Kendrick's J Mendel's dress which was had too much going on for me, it was too busy.

I didn't forget about the the men! I thought Frank Underwood Kevin Spacey looked so handsome and dapper in a Burbery navy and black suit but I didn't like Pharrel's choice of bermuda shorts for the Oscars. At least he didn't wear his Canadian Mountie hat on on the red carpet. He saved that for his performance on stage.

It seemed like plunging necklines ruled the Oscar after-parties. Kristen Bell (in Zuhair Murad), Britney Spears (in Michael Costello) and Heidi Klum (in Versace) showed off their greatest, um, assets.

So did Miranda Kerr, (in a silver, shimmering number) Reese Witherspoon (in BOSS) and Kim Kardashian (in Celia Kritharioti). All I could think of while flipping through these photos was 'HOLY BOOBS!'. I didn't expect so many celebs to show off their tata's. I expected it from Kim Kardashian, of course, since she loves hers more than she loves money but I think when lots of cleavage is involved that's all people look at, instead of looking at the dress. Boobs are a distraction! I bet the men didn't mind though ; ).

I want to end this post with my favorite "behind-the-scenes" photo: Brad Pitt eating pizza. That is all.

Did you watch the Oscars? What did you think of the fashion?

Haha, I do love the pizza shot! Ellen was such a great host! :D
I agree with pretty much all of your choices. Anna's dress should have gotten rid of the red stuff in the middle and left plain black, then it would have been perfection
