The Red Carpet

My thoughts on who was Fabulous and who was not!

2014 Oscars Who Wore it Best???

oscars

 

Lupita Nyuong’o looked like a prom queen in baby blue Prada. The
custom made head band had as much use as a jock strap for Chaz Bono.
Her past looks in tailored elegance were Fabulous and this one so close.

Jennifer Lawrence dressed safe in a red Peplum Dior Couture. She
looked pretty not Fabulous, at least when she is not falling, in a gown that
was mature past her years.

Amy Adams was dark and lovely in Gucci. Not the best color for the red
carpet and not Fabulous, just lovely.

Sandra Bullock looked dark and Fabulous in Alexander McQueen. The
dark dress had exquisite detailing of side drape with sweetheart neckline
was age appropriate and Hollywood star appropriate.

Cate Blanchett dressed next door to the event in a hotel and had no
wrinkles in her Armani gown unlike many of the others walking the carpet
looking like someone needed to steam their outfit. Beige is difficult to wear
and she did it the best. A Fabulous gown that had just a little of look what I
did in craft class or in her case, next door in the hotel.

Lady GaGa channeling Donnatella in this Fabulous Versace gown was
truly mama monster. The pink chiffon scarf should be returned to the dollar
store for a refund and take the wig back to wherever it came.

Anne Hathaway looked like she just got off of her Harley. A butch hair cut
and a studded Gucci gown made me look to see if I could spot her
girlfriend. Fabulous??? not so much.

Kerry Washington showed how a baby bump should be displayed. This
baby bump looked Fabulous in lavender Jason Wu.

Charlize Theron wearing minimal make up and no attention to hair wore a
Fabulous diamond necklace. The black Dior was unique to the night. No
one else wore a gown with handles on top of the bodice. It looked like you
could pick her up using Dior handles, who would have thought???

Kate Hudson wanted to ride the wave of dresses with capes. She looked
Fabulous in Atelier Versace although a couple of award shows late.

Julia Roberts must have been worn out in this busy black Givenchy.
Between the tuxedo top and lace insert and peplum, where does one
look??? She has done Fabulous although not this time.

Naomi Watts could not have looked more plain and safe. Puritanical,
white, boring, and not Fabulous, this Calvin Klein should have remained in
the convent.

Penelope Cruz must have been on the way to a Fabulous Toga Party and
looked ready to unwrap in Giamlattista Valli. This cotton candy pink was to
sweet to be Fabulous.

Camila Alves wife of Fabulous actor Matthew McConaughey must have
forgotten half of her coat. When your husband is receiving an oscar why
would you not check and see if you had both sleeves of your blush
Gabriela Cadena???

Meryl Streep was ready to park cars or wait tables in black and white. A
matronly Lanvin was not as Fabulous as her acting.

Kristin Chenoweth looked like a Fabulous oscar statue in Roberto Cavalli.
She is about the same height and the dress was the same color of thestatue and she resembled the statue a little to closely.

Anna Kendrick could not have looked worse if she tried. The shoes were
wrong, the hem was wrong, the little red dots were wrong, and the top of
the J. Mendel was ugly and one of the worse dresses of the evening. She
needs a Fabulous makeover from hair to toe.

Emma Watson won for most boring dress on the red carpet. Silver and
Black Vera Wang was wong not Fabulous.

Liza Minnelli in an old blue Halston that should have been buried with
Halston when he died look over medicated and under Fabulous.

20th Annual SAG Awards

 

screen-actors-guild-awards-2014.jpg w=720&h=480&l=50&t=40

Kerry Washington looked fit and Fabulous in Prada and jewels by Harry Winston. This two piece gown showing her figure after giving birth, showcased both the gown and the figure.
Lupita Nyong’o once again looked fit and Fabulous, this time in Gucci and Fred Leighton jewelry. The simplicity of the dress with the jeweled neckline shows Lupita is someone to watch.
Sandra Bullock looked better at the SAG awards than the Golden Globes. Dress in a Fabulous Lanvin gown complimented with Fred Leighton jewelry.
Jennifer Garne look Fabulous in MAX MARA and Brian Atwood. Classic, conservative, and plain, she look like she belonged on the red carpet.
Claire Danes in a Fabulous Vionnet gown with Jimmy Choo shoes and Forevermark Diamonds made a entrance deserving of the SAG Awards.
Jennifer Lawrence forever in Christian Dior looked Hollywood Fabulous.
Amy Adams, in Antonio Berardi, looked Fabulous. The beautiful blue, the one shoulder, the cutouts, created an unexpected look of perfection.
Julie Bowen wore Carolina Herrera in warm shades of orange and brown was less than red carpet ready.
Sofia Vergara back in fitted Donna Karan Atelier looked Fabulous with appropriate jewelry and so much better than she did at the Golden Globes.
Julia Roberts forever Fabulous and taking a chance in a Valentino pantsuit pulled the look off with grace and hair that complimented the entire look.
Jane Krakowski in Roland Mouret looked Fabulous in spite of a boring one shoulder dress in green.
Cate Blanchett forever Fabulous in Givenchy with Chopard jewelry once again teaches everyone how to look on the red carpet.
Abigail Breslin looked Fabulous and voluptuous in black Chagoury Couture. She let her figure tell the story.
Alfre Woodard in Tadashi Shoji looked frumpy and less than Fabulous. The cut, the style, the dress looked less than Fabulous.
Elisabeth Moss in Fabulous red Michael Kors looked simple and beautiful.
Emila Clarke in classic tailored blush Calvin Klein. Neither Fabulous nor not Fabulous, just boring.
Helen Mirren looked Fabulous except in her over embellished Escada gown. Always beautiful, she does not need the gimmicks of this gown.
Kelly Osbourne looked Fabulous in Zac Posen and it even matched her hair, not the look I would have chosen but worked for this tattooed mavin.
Giuliana Rancic in a Fabulous Basil Soda purple halter look beautiful although anorexic.

Golden Globes 2014 The Fabulous Report

Lena Dunham in Zac Posen’s Fabulous lemon strapless gown looking like yellow bird on a bad day. The dress did not fit, did not compliment her body, and she does not know how to stay for photographs.

Diane Keaton wore Ralph Lauren, just as she did in “Annie Hall” years ago and look awkward and nervous. Black and white is Fabulous although she has played this look so many times, it is time to try something Fabulous.

Hayden Panettiere wore a Fabulous Tom Ford black and white gown designed for someone taller. She looked short, dumpy and much like a sausage in it’s casing.

Monica Potter looked Fabulous in Romona Keveza’s gold beaded halter neck gown. Her hair was appropriate for the gown and the lack of accessories allowed her to shine.

Heidi Klum in Marchesa looked Fabulous in black and white. Her hair down and with major bangs, a look that help the aging model, looked better than a recent appearance with her hair in an undo, not her best look.

Jennifer Lawrence wears Fabulous Dior consistently but this tissuey gown wasn’t the best. It looked like a roll of tissue paper held in place with rubber bands.

Sofia Vergara in a Fabulous black Zac Posen ball gown that could conceal multitudes of figure flaws, that this bombshell does not have. Although great to see her in something different, this did not showcase her curves. The necklace was Fabulous and the dress was Fabulous, just not together.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Fabulous scarlet Narciso Rodriguez halter gown looked fit and fine competing with the red carpet rather than standing out.

Sandra Bullock wore a not so Fabulous Prabal Gurung gown. It appeared that she could not decide what color to wear or the designer had pieces of fabric that needed to be used. At least put a black belt to define and separate.

Julianna Margulies wears black Andrew Gn, with a Fabulous voluminous skirt balancing the plunging front. One piece of advise, stand up straight, shoulders back and the small ta-tas out.

Helen Mirren wore a Fabulous Jenny Packham green tulle and chiffon gown with orchid embellishment. A class act with a classy look.

Zoe Saldana in a custom-made Prabal Gurung. The dress looked like a Fabulous project for Project Runway that went wrong. Craft projects do not have a place on the red carpet.

Margot Robbie in a Gucci gown that accented her Fabulous figure. The shoes in the same shade as the green trip accented to perfection.

Amy Poehler in black Stella McCartney, looked the most Fabulous she has ever looked. Never too thin and/or too rich.

Zooey Deschanel in a Fabulous ivory Oscar de la Renta. Looking a little matronly and the ivory a little to close to the tone of her skin creating an old washed out look in a beautiful gown for another.

Matthew McConaughey, in a Fabulous tux by Dolce & Gabbana looked too orange from too many spray tans. A nice looking man with too many visit to the spa. He looked like a dream sickle, dreamy but orange.

Olivia Wilde in a Fabulous green sparkling Gucci gown look like a snake that swallowed the gerbil. Pregnant and wearing a tight fighting gown showed off her baby bump and the fact that she is not eating much.

Cate Blanchett in a black high-neck Armani that flips to a Fabulous and surprisingly sexy back. The hair was beautiful but spray to helmet hair hard, would have looked better if it moved.

2013 Emmy Awards

Heidi Klum appeared to have a sore throat. The sequined  Pomegranat Atelier Versace would have looked better without the less than Fabulous turtle neck and so would she.

Kerry Washington is taking craft classes again, appliqués everywhere. The Ivory Marchesa was close to Fabulous but to much going on with the flower appliqués that would have looked better in the garden than on the dress.

Zosia Momet is not a beauty and her dress looked worse. A tacky Giovanna Randal tie dyed cut out showing a black leather bra of all things. Really, why??? This did not even come close to Fabulous.

Connie Britton appears to be the mane event with her hair as her primary accent other than the Stuart Weitzman clutch. Her velvet Naeem Kham would have been Fabulous in a colder climate although she was hot.

Jessica Pare looked pointy in he Oscar de la Renta gown.  My question is why??? Not Fabulous.

Aubrey Plaza appeared to be doing the craft classes as well, but why the appliqués around the turtleneck and why a turtleneck for the red carpet??? Not Fabulous.

Amanda Peet wore the theme of the evening, a turtleneck. It was not long, it was not short and it was not Fabulous.

Rose Byrne cut her pale pink Calvin Klein in half to show off her Fabulous stomach.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson wore his best on his arm, his husband Justin Mikita. The couple married this past July, Fabulous. Belated Congrats to both!

Julianne Hough in a Jenny Packham see through dress looked like she forgot her slip. Not a Fabulous look.

Claire Danes needs one of the turtlenecks of the night. Her sheer low cut did not compliment her eating disorder. Skinny is Fabulous but hungry is not.

Kaley Cucco was Fabulous in a strapless Vera Wang gown in burgundy. She made a Big Bang in this dress.

Sofia Vergara was one of the most Fabulous of the night. She knows what to wear for her body. The Vera Wang gown was Fabulously accented in millions of $$$ of jewelry.

Paula Abdul could not have looked less Fabulous even if she tried. The look she was going for was the Emmy statuette, I guess???

Julia Louis Dreyfus looked Fabulous in Monique Llhuillier. A sequin gown done Fabulous.

Zooey Deschanel looked like she borrowed a gown from days gown by and not Fabulous.

Anna Faris looked like yellow bird and not Fabulous.

And as always, I’ll be watching . . .

Oscars 2013

Halle Berry was Fabulous and brought the va-va-voom to a metallic Versace gown. Monsters Ball and academy award winner said on the red carpet that she wanted to dress as a Bond girl for the Academy Awards, and she did.

Anne Hathaway Les Miserables best supporting actress was not Fabulous and for all the wrong reasons including her side-baring, pointy pink Prada gown, with less than flattering darts.

Reese Witherspoon walked the red carpet in a Fabulous black-and-blue Louis Vuitton gown, which her 13-year-old daughter Ava assisted her in selecting. He best accessory was her wavy blond hair,  saying it was because  she just gave birth to a baby recently.

Kristen Stewart looked like she may be “Twilight” hot mess. She hid the crutches for the red carpet hobble although that was no excuse for her less than Fabulous look. She had a fashion miss in an ill-fitting Reem Acra gown and pillow tossed locks. Put a comb in your purse.

Sandra Bullock turned heads in a Fabulous lacy black Elie Saab gown, which showed a hint of skin. A side part and a vintage Daniel Swarovski bag completed her Fabulous look.

Jennifer Aniston was Fabulous in a strapless Valentino red number. She joked that she could fit a village under her dress, the big skirt was too big. She wore Fred Leighton jewelry and carried a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch to complete the look.


Jessica Chastain
channeled Fabulous Old Hollywood in a gorgeous Armani Prive gown, featuring a structured bodice and Swarovski crystal embellishing. As for her jewels, she was bathed in vintage Harry Winston diamonds on her ears and wrist.

Jennifer Lawrence Best Actress looked bride ready to walk down the aisle of a church courtesy of Dior Haute Couture. She topped off her wedding-inspired costume with a Fabulous up do and diamonds by Chopard.

Charlize Theron was incredibly Fabulous and sophisticated in her structured Dior Couture column gown and very short hair. Harry Winston jewels added a Fabulous touch of sparkle


Jennifer Garner was Fabulous in a raspberry-colored column Gucci gown embellished with a Fabulous ruffled train.  The 40-year-old also accessorized with $2.5 million worth of Neil Lane jewels.

Adele  sparkled in a Fabulous beaded black tulle Jenny Packham gown,  paired with a half up, half down hair style and  signature dark eyeliner for Hollywood’s biggest night.

Salma Hayek’s wore a Fabulous Alexander McQueens gown that showed off her little waist but she was not tall enough to carry it off.  Her up-do was the perfect way to wear her hair with this highly embellished neckline. The dress was desperately trying too hard to be regal but makes Hayek look morelike a caricature of herself.

Naomi Watts sparkled in a shimmering, Fabulous one-shoulder Armani Prive gown that highlighted her Fabulous figure. She wore Jimmy Choo shoes, a Roger Vivier bag, and Neil Lane jewelry to the ensemble to complete her blond bombshell look

Jennifer Hudson was Fabulous in a Roberto Cavalli blue gown. The high slit showed off Hudson’s gorgeous shape and her sleek hair was a Fabulous accessory.

Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott two toned Head-to-toe sequins is a really tough look to pull off. But the most disturbing thing about the L’Wren Scott gown looking closely at the bodice it almost looks like a face. Not Fabulous

Helena Bonham Carter is on a worst dressed list wearing a Vivienne Westwood gown looking more like a costume from “Les Miserables” than a Fabulous red carpet gown.

Jane Fonda’s Valentino dress is a Fabulous sun yellow. Fonda, 75 looks Fabulous and better than many half her age.

Sally Field could not have picked a better gown than this Fabulous red Valentino gown. The Fabulous ruffles and ruching on the bodice caressed Field’s frame. I like it. I really, really like it.

Catherine Zeta-Jones’ Zuhair Murad dress is too gold and too pageant looking. Her hair was Fabulous and her jewelry was also.

Octavia Spencer knows Fabulous on a red carpet wearing a Tadashi Shoji gown. The hue of the dress was Fabulous for her skin tone and the cut creative but not too tacky. Fabulous
