A group of my favourite gal pals gathered this morning for drinks, nibblies and more importantly, fashion. The Oscar red carpet did not disappoint and we had lots of fun adoring and abhorring the dresses.
Our very own best dressed...
Love it girls.
Without further ado and in no particular order, here we go...
I do love silver and in my opinion Gwyneth rocked this frock. She's skinnier than anyone need ever be but she looks fabulous. Loved the fabric, loved the belt, loved her hair, loved it all.Image from here and here
Sandra B looked elegant in red but up close her face was a little washed out. Lucky I'm perfect.Image from here and here
Hard to go wrong when you're Halle Berry. The woman is not of this earth. Actually loved this dress more before the cameras panned down to the hemline, it's a bit random if you ask me but still a fabulous frock.
I'm assuming they were going for ethereal lavender or something like that and while Mila does look pretty the diaphanous purple lace around the neckline looks like her Victoria's Secret is now not quite so secret.
The E hosts were raving about this dress and frankly I don't see it. Another day, another occasion, maybe but it's the OSCARS people. I don't know how else to put it, wait yes I do, Baywatch.

The necklace on that neckline just doesn't work, too crowded.
The colour is beautiful her the boobies are not. Like I said, it's the Oscars people, less is more when it comes to decolletage.
I'm sure they ran out of crystals and sequins half way through.
Like I said, I love silver. Even with the froufrou feathers. She looks lovely.
I do get it, her op-see-yons are limited and I don't want to be the one to be mean to the pregnant lady but that colour...it's just sooooooo matronly. There I said it and because I like her I'll say no more.
I thought this was the perfect way for a fourteen year old to do Oscar glam. So refreshing to see a young girl looking like exactly that, a young girl. Watch and learn Miley.
Reese played it safe and there's nothing wrong with that.
Case in point, Cate should have. Or as one of my friends said, "beam me up Scotty".
Look, for a woman of a certain age Sharon Stone is fantabulous, hell for a woman of my age Sharon Stone is fantabulous BUT the beehive, is too much.
Nothing ain't wrong with it but something ain't right with it. I think it's the band around her waist.
I think Michelle can pull this look off. She reminds me of Andy Warhol's muse Edie Sedgwick here.

So to conclude, Gwyneth's frock tops my best dressed list and Cate's space suit tops my worst dressed list, only because she's set the bar so high. Wow, how to give a back-handed compliment. You know what I mean though.
