A Look at the Oscars

March 9, 2010

Days after the Oscars and the buzz is still in the air.  On top of the list, of course, is Sandra Bullock and the gorgeous gold shimmering dress she wore.  Her look was alluring with her hair kept in simple form — down to her shoulders, and makeup applied just enough to bring out her  beauty.  Although I did think the shade of lip color she wore was a tad bit too bright, nonetheless she made it work.  I’m no Sandra Bullok fan, but I admit she did look stunning.

I have to agree with the Huffington Post on this one about Mariah Carey who was  one who seemed to have had the right idea, but went a bit over the top with her bling bling with the brooch, the earings and that God awful clutch. 

Frankly I think had she kept it subtle (less bling) she probably would have pulled off a fabulous look without all the sparkle.  I thought the flesh colored Louboutin shoes were nice, but not for that dress.  Had she gone with a strippy sandal to set off the color of the dress, it would have probably moved her into one of the “best dressed” categories.   As much as I love Mariah, this was a hit and miss.

Now let’s talk about Mo’Nique.  Many congrats on the win, girl, but come on, not shaving your legs for the gala spectacular event?  What’s up with that?  Fortunately she had on a long dress so viewers in television land didn’t have to endure  that view on live television. 

All the same, she looked beautiful in her royal blue dress which had special meaning to her, a tribute to the late Hattie McDaniels who was the first African American woman to win the award and for best supporting actress in 1939 for her betrayal of a sassy mammy.  Hattie McDaniels died in 1952.  Mo’Nique won the award for best supporting actress also stated that she was honored for her role as an abusive mother in the movie Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.

There were some obvious train wrecks of the worse dressed of the Oscars like the tie-dyed dress Zoe Saldana was spotted on the Red Carpet wearing.  In the end, while critics couldn’t wait to get their hands on the best and worse dressed of the evening, bottom line is everyone was beautiful in every way.  Congratulations to all the winners and nominees.
