Perfect and Not-so-Perfect - 2012 Oscars



As you can see, I'm a little partial to the off white and neutral dresses.  They are just so elegant!  The only thing I didn't like about Jennifer's dress was the fact that it had a sheer skin coloured fabric in the cut outs on her arms.  It wasn't noticeable from a distance, but when the camera was up close on her when she was presenting, it wrinkled up and made her look like she has 90 year old skin on her arms! Minor detail - but it all counts!  

And I know that Maria Menounos was a correspondent for the event but I couldn't help putting her in here! I LOVE this dress and I thought she stood out more so than some of the stars walking by her!


I think a lot of people will disagree with me on some of these but this is just my opinion.  I thought the Penelope's dress looked a lot like the prom dresses from when I graduated many years ago and it just wasn't all that exciting.  Sandra's dress could have been much more flatting if the beads hit at the small of her waist rather than at her hips.  I've seen Stacey on a few best dressed lists already but I am just not a fan of the head-to-toe metallic and the giant rosette on her hip.  Don't get me wrong - they all looked amazing! These three dresses just didn't tickle my fancy!

Who do you think was best dressed?

  5. Very nice blog! I'm happy I found you on another site. I must admit that I'm sad Penelope ended up on your worst list although you're right about the prommy look. I just think that color is to die for! : )

  6. I think Mila got the most amazing dress on that night. It's a pity, that you don't have a picture of her.
