Back with my Oscar favorites.
As I stated in my previous post, I was really looking forward to watching the Oscars. First I should mention that my hubby and I rarely go to the movies. We attend about three/four movies in a theater a year. The rest of the time we rent when a film comes out on DVD. So I hadn't seen most of the movies up for award. (With the exception of the Queen, which I loved!) The reason I love watching awards ceremonies is primarily to view the dresses,makeup and hair. I love to check out color trends and see the art form of textile design. I find it so inspiring. I know that there are a lot of other blogs dedicated to fashion/celebrity who will give you a much better round up, but I wanted to list my three favorite looks of the show.
2) Nicole Kidman.
Normally I am not a fan of huge bows or asymmetrical gowns. But something about the color, cut and contrast of matte vs. shinny fabrics really made me take notice of this dress. Beautiful.
3) Reese Witherspoon. This girl has had a rough year, but is looking like a million bucks here. This is probably my favorite dress of the whole night. Classic yet unexpected with the cascading ruffles.
