Academy Awards 2015
The Fabulous . . .
Gwyneth Paltrow in blush colored Ralph & Russo looked a little old for the dress. It would have been Fabulous on a younger person?
Lupita Nyong’o in a cream Custom Calvin Klein Collection looked Fabulous. The 6,000 beads that Francisco Costa, creative director for Calvin Klein were used beautifully.
Lady Gaga in a white custom Azzedine Alaia looked Fabulous. The only thing I would have changed would have been to leave the red gloves at home next time. A side note: Gaga’s repertoire’ of The Sound Of Music was not only beautifully performed, it was also refreshing to see what an incredible vocalist she really is.
Reese Witherspoon in black and white custom Tom Ford looked Fabulous. The black and white gave her a look of sophistication and glamour.
Jennifer Aniston in a nude color Atelier Versace looked Fabulous as always. The fit was perfect and a new designer for her created her best look yet.
Jennifer Lopez in a nude color Elie Saab Couture looked Fabulous. She looked like a princess that was the Belle Of The Ball and the two and half million dollars of Neil Lane jewelry did not hurt at all.
Cate Blanchett in a black John Galliano for Maison Margiela looked Fabulous. The turquoise Tiffany necklace added a perfect splash of color.
Viola Davis in a pink Zac Posen looked Fabulous. The off the shoulder was a stunning choice for her.
Octavia Spencer in a mint Tadashi Shoji looked Fabulous. She proved a full figured woman does not have to look like a sofa.
Oprah Winfrey in a peach custom Vera Wang looked remarkably Fabulous. Another full figure woman proving they do not have to wear dresses that look like a couch cover.
Nicole Kidman in a custom sequin Louis Vuitton with a red belt looked Fabulous. Where has her waist line gone? Menopause must have hit with a vengeance and it wasn’t pretty.
Emma Stone in a chartruse Elie Saab looked Fabulous. The beading and open back was the perfect choice.
Meryl Streep in black and white Lanvin looked Fabulous. Alber Elbaz did the best look yet for this maturing actress with *19* nominations so far.
Julianne Moore in white Chanel Haute Couture looked Fabulous. The 80,000 hand painted sequins sparkled to perfection.
Jennifer Hudson (Chicago Girl) in yellow Romona Keveza looked Fabulous. Many do not look good in yellow but Jennifer nailed it to perfection!
Kelly Osbourne in black Rita Vineris looked Fabulous. The lace top and full skirt gave her the best look ever.
Patricia Arquette in black and white Rosetta Getty. Usually not a fan of one shoulder styles, however this one was an exception with its draping and detailing.
America Ferrera in green Jenny Packham looked Fabulous. “Ugly Betty” (we really miss that show) is now pretty, thank goodness and the red bag was too.
The less than Fabulous . . .
Solange Knowles in a red Christian Siriano did not look Fabulous. She had enough fabric to make several dress and all of them would have been just as ugly!
Scarlett Johansson in an emerald Versace did not look Fabulous either. The necklace was wrong for the dress in so many way but mostly, it made her look like she was choking.
Rita Ora in navy Marchesa did not look Fabulous. The crumb catcher neckline looked like a storage facility (?)
Keira Knightley in a floral Valentino Haute Couture also did not look Fabulous. She is pregnant and the yards and yards of fabric only made her look worse . . .
Felicity Jones in grey Alexander McQueen did not look Fabulous. This petite star looked overwhelmed in big dress.
As always, I’ll be watching . . .
