Steve Martin’s hilarious one-liners, we also had a few new trends, some
tried-and-trues, and a bevy of stylish ladies!
Just in time for Spring, a few celebs made their mark with gowns that looked like they were shipped straight from their favorite designer's resort collection. Still, the colors were fun and frothy and added a nice kick to an Academy Awards that could have been filled with gowns of the past. (Though I'm not a fan of whatever Ms. Zoe Saldana is trying to do with her two tone Givenchy confection. Kudos for trying)
Gold and Sparkle
While I'm not a fan of the washed-out look (what is it with celebs this awards season foregoing bold red or midnight blue for pale peach or translucent gold,) I do like that they are adding some embellishments to their gowns to truly make themselves sparkle. While metallics can look overdone, a gold gown with sparkle adds just the right touch.
In order to dress up their gowns just a bit, besides adding sparkle, lots of stars added ruffles to their bottom hems and everywhere in between. While some looked ultra-femme and sugary sweet, others were out of place and overdone. When wearing a gown with ruffles, one must do so carefully and tastefully or you'll end up looking like a Mariah Carey wannabe. Wear a bit on the sleeves, shoulders, or on the collar. Don't do the Diane Kruger.
Bold tones are back again! We saw them at the Golden Globes and the SAGs and they're back in town for the Oscars, becoming bigger and brighter then ever for celebs (and B-list celebs) who really want to make a statement.
A new and interesting look for Oscars 2010? Metal and sparkly stone gray. A bit metallic, but more played down, and much more focused on the glitter or the structure of the dress.
Surprisingly Worst Dressed
These three celebs always look so divine at every event. So why did they choose these gowns? I'm still scratching my head…
