Hi! Happy Monday! At least I'm trying to convince myself it is. It's chilly and raining here and my daughter decided that 5:30am would be an awesome time to wake up. Of course that wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't been up until 3am with one of my insomnia bouts*. I didn't get to watch the Oscar show itself, but I watched the "pregame" on E! where I saw Sacha Baron Cohen dump the "ashes" on Ryan Seacrest live! It was so funny because you could tell that Ryan was not amused and was scrambling to act like it was no big deal. Didn't work. Hey Ryan, we know it ticked you off and that, my dear, is why Mr. Cohen decided to do it to you. Did anyone else see it? Did anyone else notice how Ryan kept bringing it up to everyone he talked to the rest of the night? He practically cried when he was talking to J.Lo about it. Tee hee.
Okay, now to what really matters - the fashion! In my opinion, there were three ladies who knocked it out of the park. First up, Jessica Chastain in a gorgeous Alexander McQueen dress. The dress is incredible and her hair was just perfection. She was my top pick.
Next up is Octavia Spencer. This Tadashi Shoji dress is perfect, the fit, the color, the way it pulls in at the waist. She looked amazing! (And how happy was I that she won? So happy!)
My last pick is Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford. I love the drama of the cape with the dress. Without the cape, the dress is okay, but the cape adds an almost architectural element, which I find really interesting. Her hair was a fail in my opinion, it was weird.
So what do you all think? Was the show as boring as I've been hearing?
*On a side note, TLC had a "My 600 Pound Life" marathon on last night while I was up and what a riveting show. Oh man, heartbreaking, inspiring, happy, sad - there's a whole range of emotions that bubble up watching the struggles. Has anyone else watched that show? I would love to hear your thoughts.
I'm joining up with my girls over at BonBon Rose Girls today for the Monday Mingle.
Have a great Monday!
