My Oscar's Best/Worst Dressed Picks



I know, I am late with this post, but it's never too late to admire some great fashion!  This year the Oscars left me yearning for some Old Hollywood style but I did manage to find two dresses that totally caught my attention and I really can't decide which one I love more.

I know, everyone has already applauded Cate Blanchett for her dress but it is truly amazing.  I thought the cap sleeves and high neck really suited her statuesque frame as well as the nude color on her skin-tone. And just look at all that detailed beading, simply gorgeous.  Her hair, makeup, and minimal accessories I thought were perfect as well.

My next pick for favorite was Bette Midler's dress that she walked the red carpet in.  I heard so many fashion "experts" go on about how you shouldn't wear red to walk the red carpet because you will just go unnoticed, but I don't see how this would be possible for Bette in this dress.  She is 68 years old and looks absolutely stunning. Seriously folks, I think she is just perfection and this dress looks Aah-May-Zing on her. Love, love, love it!

And finally, my worst dressed must go to Liza Minnelli.  I mean, I love Liza, don't get me wrong, and it was great to see her out and about, but come on, put on a bra for heaven's sake!  I did think the blue streak in her hair was great as well as her makeup and accessories.  And her Halston satin pant suit would have been a perfect choice for her had she just hoisted the girls up off of her belly.

  1. Great picks! Bette's frock, as well as that worn by Catherine Martin, the costume designer on last year's version of The Great Gatsby, were my two favourite of the evening.

    1. Oh I loved Catherine's dress too! It had a very 40s vibe to it, especially the print.

  2. Oh dear, I don't know how they let Liza go out like that. What happened to her? She looks 20 yrs older than she is. I just don't think its cute to let the girls hang out like that esp if you have substantial girls like she does. The first two were lovely choices. I cannot imagine being in a dress for that many hours-I mean a dressy dress. Sounds exhausting to me LOL xox

    1. I wouldnt mind being all dressed up for hours if I were skinny like they are and didnt have to have all these foundation garments constricting my breathing. I guess maybe thats what Liza was thinking, just let it all hang out and be comfortable! lol

  3. It is a shame about Liza as she has such a great history about her. I'm not sure who she was listening too. I can imagine she has some wonderful gems in her closet. But, all of these women do look wonderful for their age. Love Bette
