If loving these are wrong…

I don’t want to be right! Just a quickie, ya’ll, I always do my Oscar fashion Monday morning quarterback report. Last night, my husband HAD to watch the whole show (I know — just when I reach the point in my life when I don’t care anymore, we MUST watch because his job demands it!).

So anyway, he had to live-Tweet it; as you can see below, I got a little crazy with the Tweeting as well, which I usually don’t do. But lord, the loggorhea and boredom sunk in, until crazy Kanye lady jumped on stage — let me be the first to say, I have worked with her ilk before, many times!

So, briefly, briefly: My two favorite dresses. Disagree all you like, that’s what this is about. It’s the American way! And for the record, you know I only had one horse in this race: Janet Patterson for her costume design for Bright Star. Poor dear lost.

Okay, this dress is getting a lot of hate and some tiny love. Here’s why I like it: Even though this poor child needs a sammi in the worst way, she can wear a dress like nobody. I love how fashion-forward, architectural and textural this dress is. I’ve heard this called the mullet dress, the poodle dress, the plastic lei dress…I could go on. But I think it’s luscious, and every time I look at it, I’m more intrigued.

This one took some coming around to. I hate the shoes, and wish she had not gone so blonde. And I remember Carey back when she used to eat a sammi or two (Bleak House). BUT. All the little cutlery and scissors running down the front is unusual, goth, clever and so young and fun and again, textural, that I am won over in the end.

And the Tanya lifetime achievement award for “How do you get those boobs to cantilever so nicely into all your dresses?” as always, goes to Queen Latifah. A skill I would like if I ever become a superhero.

More later in the week; we are going to see one of our favorite French bands this weekend and I’m very excited!

    I have gotten over the whole idea that to look good in a dress you have to look like you need a Twinkie enema. Nothing wrong with some tits and ass in that Chanel. Somebody PLEASE order a pizza for Ms. Parker.

    I have to say that between Carrie Mulligan, the costume designer who won the Oscar, the clip of Mia Farrow during the Horror Film tribute, and a random clip of Ginnifer Goodwin on Jimmy Kimmel — I’m very close to cutting my hair! I adore a pixie cut!
