Here’s what we’ve seen since statues of little gold men have been handed out:
I take my eyes off the screen for two seconds, and bam, the sharpest Tom Hanks I’ve ever seen magically appears. He has color in his skin, he’s neatly-groomed and he sported one of the best tuxes we’ve seen so far this show.
Jennifer Lopez always wears something sexy and somewhat revealing, but .The lines on her shiny gown complement her bodacious bod. And poor Cameron Diaz for having to stand next to J.Lo. In my opinion, her look fell flat, but how can you compare to those curves? Nice try, Cam.
Sandra Bullock looks absolutely regal in the pseudo-cap sleeve gown with a train. The silky white and navy blue bottom with gold details totally captures Bullock’s simplistic style. She’s absolutely stunning in such a different shape from other stars at the show.
Octavia Spencer mentioned on the Red Carpet that she didn’t have an award speech planned because she doesn’t like to be presumptuous, but she’s a an absolute sight in that dress. Love how she’s continuing the silver dress trend. So popular this time around!
We’re well into the awards, and we’ve seen a few glimpses of Mr. Martin Scorsese (one of my favorite directors: see The Departed). He’s the second man I’ve seen tonight in all-black, and to that, I salute him. Scorsese is known for his mobster-esque films, and his style reveals the dark reality and the superb sharpness of his style of film. Keep raising that one eyebrow, sir.
Some may disagree with Robert Downey Jr.‘s quirk, but I think he always gives a modern twist on old classics. Look how well his tuxedo fits next to Gweneth Paltrow‘s streamlined white ensemble. The Academy Awards still have a sort-of West Coast glamourous style about them, but RDJ could be featured in a fashion spread from the West Coast to Milan. Great man, great bow tie.
Every time I see Ben Stiller, I like to think of how far he’s come from Zoolander. Like Clooney, he put fellow brethren to shame in his navy tuxedo and the slim tie, opposite of the bow ties we constantly see. (Not complaining! It is nice to see variety, though.) And hate on Emma Stone’s dress all you want. I have a very open mind to fashion. I think she looks stunning. Confidence exudes flashiness above all.
Beginners was one of my favorite films of the year, and Christopher Plummer makes his mark in his deep navy tux. Is that velvet I see? Great performance, Mr. Plummer, and great mustache. Hopefully we’ll see the dapper Ewan McGregor tonight, too.
I write this as I see Meryl Streep, which is appropriate, but stay tuned for more and more refined style and glamour.
