Sad Trombone

I just CANNOT with the Oscars' recap. Why? Because they underwhelmed me immensely. This is all I'll say...Why was Phil Dunphey doing color commentary with Giuliana Ransik on the red carpet? And two - this was the best look of the night, as far as I'm concerned...


But wait - there's more! Did you see the back?


Kate Hudson was the only one who made me gasp out loud when I saw her. Even It Girl Lupita Nyong'o, who looked beautiful, did not knock my socks off when I saw her like I did in that red dress with cape. Granted, I totally teared up when she won, and she gave my favorite speech of the night - amazing - with Jared Leto's speech a close second. Go figure. Jesus in a Tuxedo BROUGHT IT.

So I'm not going to do my usual recap, because there was a whole lotta skin-toned boring dresses, as far as I'm concerned. But who did YOU like? Share.

Merci,
Shan

Couldn't agree more about the dresses. B-O-R-I-N-G. So little colour.

AMEN!! And I didn't even mention John Travolting. BLECH BLECH BLECH. How in the world did he mess up Idina Menzel's name? Oh the humanity.

For me there was no one perfect dress. It was either the all too similar as all the stylists got together last week and decided no one was going to win and save themselves from scrutiny from the fashion police. I liked Kate Hudson's dress but there was a little too try hard to be photogenic from every angle thing going on. I didn't think Lupita's dress suited her in terms of cut but the color was stunning.

Totally underwhelmed too! Major snoresville... My kids loved Pharell singing & thank God Pink showed up when she did cuz I loved her signing "somewhere over the rainbow". Also Julianna Rancic needs to eat a cheeseburger. Maybe 2. Just sayin..... I did really like JLaw's dress (color, shape). But the necklace down the back again? Been there done that last year, sister!

OMG, yes! What a snooze fest! I like to see some fashion risk taking. Everyone played it too safe.

Shan, Agree with you. Thanks for the notes on my post. Yes the pale flesh toned dresses were everywhere and they are getting OLD! They also photograph horribly..I guess bring back the Bjorks.. We need some spice in this show. The darn selfies thing and pizza was irritating too. Best part, the Bette Midler and Pink songs..

As far as I'm concerned, Pink can do no wrong. She is SO badass.

All I cared about was Matthew McC, Camila and Matt's mom. They looked like shining stars. When he won that award I bawled like a baby. Chris called me an emo, but I didn't care. I had another KFC leg and carried right on.

Loved this dress Kate's wearing! Who is it by?? I also did love Lupita's dress because that color was perfection on her! Other than that I agree there wasn't a lot else.

Hope you are having a great week!
