The 83rd Academy Awards

I am disappointed to say that this year's Oscars were the worst I have ever seen since I first started watching, about ten years ago. This goes for everything; the dresses, the hosts, the ceremony, the live performances of the best song nominees, just everything. The sad part is - aside from the whole thing - is that the selection of films nominated were all terrific. They sure did a poor job of giving the nominees the type of celebration they deserve. Now, on to the fashion. Since it was such a poor showing, I am going to classify the dresses simply as good or bad. Let me know what you think about the leading ladies fashion choices!

The Good

Natalie Portman in Rodarte.
This is pretty enough to wear even when you're not preggers.

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab.
Gorgeous, so flowing and feminine, and the hair and makeup looks flawless.

Hilary Swank in Gucci.
I love this, and it's a little bit edgy with the ombre-effect feathers.

Anne Hathaway in Givenchy.
Sadly, this was the only one of her many looks that I liked, all the rest were a yawn. Her stylist, Rachael Zoe, gets a big, fat FAIL.

The Bad

Nicole Kidman in Dior.
Terribly unflattering shape and the embroidery is awful. It looks like a hideous beadspread that you always find in old people's spare bedrooms.

Marisa Tomei in vintage Charles James.
All kinds of wrong. It doesn't even fit her properly!

Melissa Leo in Marc Bauer.
Dear Melissa Leo: This will forever be what you wore to accept your Academy Award. You must live with this fact forever.

Jennifer Hudson in Versace.
After losing so much weight, it's a shame she didn't wear something better. The colour is okay, but the fabric is awful and cheap-looking, the shape is boring and something really weird is happening with her boobs.
