THE OSCAR RED CARPET & AFTER PARTIES!


What a delightful way to start the red carpet, my two favorite people in the world that I've known since I was 6yrs old!

Miss Piggy & Kermit in Zac Posen.

 Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton.
I thought she looked wonderful,  & the colour was so refreshing.



 Rooney Mara in Givenchy haute couture
Again, I liked the dress, I just wish she had added some earrings and an amazing cocktail ring!
Voila, then this would have been magic!
And ladies u R on the RED carpet with the whole world watching, please, please look confident, this is YOUR moment to shine!



 Sandra Bullock in Marchesa
Hmmmmmm, On screen, this dress was wonderful, but it didn't translate as well in pictures. I like it, but I'm not too crazy about it. 



Cameron Diaz in Gucci
I felt as if I'd seen this dress so many times b4 in different colours and fabrics, yawn. Next!



 Glen Close in Zac Posen
'A' for effort, she's over 50 and has such a lovely figure. The colour was nice, I only wish she hadn't hidden her neck in her jacket. 
Standing up straight with your head up high, can make all the difference.



 Jane Seymour in Pamela Rolland.
Perfection, and I hope I look  this  GOOD in my 60's.



Janet McTeer 
In a beautiful red dress that nobody seemed to know the designer. One of my absolute favorites and so age appropriate!



 Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad 
Oh what an OSCAR GODDESS!
I loooooooooooooved this dress. I just wish that it wasn't so low in the front and I would have liked to see what this dress looked like without the sleeves. 
But it was my WOW dress of the whole event!



 Leslie Mann in Roberto Cavalli
The colour is soooooo rich,  how can u NOT fall in love with it!



Li Bingbing in Georges Chakra Couture.
Beautiful and as delicate as a daisy! 
The detailing was a work of art.



 Louise Roe in Black Halo
I thought this was a really nice dress, It was a 2 peace and blush pink. 
 I would definitely wear this to a black-tie event here in Oslo.



Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab
Yes darling u are looking like a million bucks, it's a throw back to the 1940's and Eva Gardner immediately came to  my mind!



Missy Pyle in mint green, another sorbet sweet looking dress that 
nobody seemed to know it's designer. I adored it, but it was 
ill-fitted at the bust line and needed to be pulled up an inch up the chest!



Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji
Hello Winner. Not only for the Oscar award, but also for the fact that she took the time to get this dress FITTED properly. She looks amazing, slimmer and shows a desirable figure!



Penelope Cruze in Armani Prive
I thought of Grace Kelly when I saw this dress and the irony of it is, that her son Prince Albert and his wife of Monaco, attend the awards this year!
Anyway, back to Penelope, u look every inch the silver screen goddess that u are darling. Muah!



Shailene Woodley in Valentino 
Silence..............Ok, I loved this dress if I was going to a dinner with my in-laws. Shailene is much too young to wear a dress like this ON the red carpet at the OSCARS???



Sheila E. In yet a again a-no-name dress that I loved.
Fantastic choice and I can smell her perfume from here!
Yummy!



Nancy O'dell in Chagoury Couture
YES!!!!! I liked it, it was like a strong drink that wakes you up in a good way. The colour was so hot! She definitely stood out from a lot of the whites, nudes and blacks on the red carpet.
Difference, is unexpected and NEVER boring.



 Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli
Emma, Emma, Emma, hmmmmmm.
U should have called me honey. The dress was nice it's just that we have seen it before, and what's worse, in better versions.
What can I say? Better luck next time, or better still, call me.


Nicole Kidman wore a very similar dress to the Oscars in 2007.

Charlize Theron wore an exaggerated bow to the Oscars in 2006

And Jennifer Lopez wore this Gucci dress to 
the Met Gala last year.
So u see Emma, your choice didn't bring enough excitement or originality to the red carpet! Sorry.




Alexandra Edenborough & Gary Oldman.
Now this is how u wear black sequins. I'm not a fan of black but I would definitely wear this!



Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace
Well hello sexy! She's awake and kicking today & I like it.
Just one little note, u don't have to exaggerate the leg that much and darling go for a tan, u will look soooooo much better, I promise. Oh and an extra 10 more pounds, and u will be the QUEEN of all the Hollywood vixens. 




Brook Burns
I like the colour and detail. 
It was different and it caught my eye.



Maria Menounos 
 Sea-foam green is a hard, hard colour to pull off, but when it's in chiffon, it just floats into the direction of exquisiteness! 



Sherri Shepherd
Sherri is definitely enjoying her married life, I have never seen her look so ravishing and happy and slim, in like........Forever!
I just wish she had worn a blue bra or a blue camisole to cover the black patch in the middle of her chest. Your eyes are immediately drawn to the bust line b'cos of that distracting black!!!!!!



Stacy Keibler in Marchesa
Well, I think I'll give her the prize as the Golden Oscar Goddess. This dress is beautiful and looks wonderful on her. Height and figure are a must b'cos this dress is not for every one. 
Beautiful choice Stacy.



Tina Fey in her Peplum custom Carlina Herrera
The Peplum dress is the new thing to hide those problem areas (Hips, thighs, bottom) and I think Tina not only looked beautiful in the dress, but she looked gorgeous from top to bottom, the hair was in a lovely tasseled chignon that added femininity to the look.



Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford
She was my number 2 BEST dressed on the red carpet, a tall  glass of non-fat milk. Regal and statuesque, with clean lines. A very strong statement that u can only pull off with that height and figure. BRAVO Gwyneth! 




THE PARTY'S





The 20th Annual ELTON JOHN'S 
Aids Foundation Oscar  After-Party.
 Anika Noni Rose looked amazing from head to toe!
WOW!



It's a long time since I have seen Kelly Osbourne look so pretty.
That shade of yellow sorbet is absolutely divine. 



Nina Dobrev in J.Mendel
Regal in black and the dramatic cut-outs enhanced the waist-line.
Fantastic dress that I would love to own in white!



Paz Vega in Stephane Rolland Couture.
This reminded me sooooooooo much of my wedding dress (without the accents on the hip)



Diana Agron
I thought this one of the most beautiful dresses of the whole day.



Heidi Klum looking futuristic in Atelier Versace.



A pregnant Kourtney & Kim Kardashian



Elton John in the middle of Katy Perry & Dita Von Teese




Miley Syrus & boyfriend Liam Hemsworth



Heidi & Bar having fun.
Boys!!!!! The Deseret has been served!



Carmen Electra looking a peach in sea shell pink sequins. 



Elton John, Katy Perry & Adam Lambert 



Fran Drescher & her doggy:-) I guess this was her plus one!



Irina Shayk in white! 
This is what Angelina should look like in a high slit-to-there-dress.
Mz Jolie take note. 



Mena Suvari just looked soooooooo adorable in this 
Romona Keveza.



I hardly recognized Petra Nemcova in her war-paint make-up!
The red dress was beautiful, but who on earth okayed her 
make-up??? 
Standing with Paz Vega in white.



Katy Perry in Blumarine & Dita Von Teese in Jenny Peckham.
Loved the dresses,  VERY Hollywood and GLAMOUROUS!
My style exactly.
