Oscars 2014: Quick Hits and Miss
I’m assuming all of the Oscars 2013 attendees read my article from last year, because they slightly stepped it up a notch this year. In general, I wasn’t too disappointed by the fashion turnout this year, but then again, I wasn’t drooling over anyone’s dress either. To be honest, I think certain celebrities need to stop being invited to the Oscars because I feel like each year they look like they try less in choosing their outfit. Maybe it is time to hire me to pick out dresses because something ain’t workin’. Nonetheless, let’s start the critiquing of the hits and miss of the 2014 Oscars.
My absolute favorite outfit of the night was Camila Alves…and she technically wasn’t meant to be at the event. Well, she is because of Matthew Mc…(how do you spell his last name?!) McConaughey, but my point is she wasn’t nominated and I’m almost positive she didn’t present, but yet she pulled off the best Oscar look.
Camila Alves was wearing a Gabriela Cadena gown, which honestly looked made for her. It’s a beautiful classic color that has interesting layering to it. Her dress was simple but not simple enough to go unnoticed. Good thing McConaughey won an Oscar so he could give the award to her for her dress! Congratulations to the lovely couple!
Next up … Penelope Cruz!
At first, I gave her outfit an instant miss but as I looked through all the photos of her, I changed my opinion from a miss to an “okay, I see what you are thinking, but it didn’t work.” Penelope Cruz’s Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress changes with the way she angles it. When you are looking at it straight from the front, it’s a big fat “no,” with a black bow on the side. But, when you are looking at the dress in a certain slanted angle, it looks a little better. Honestly, I preferred her after Oscars dress more than the dress that actually mattered.
Not so bad, acceptable Gosh no, keep slanting I guess you can enter the Oscars now
The deep V cut theme:
These three looks are actually not that bad. I am in love with the color of Lupita Nyong’o’s Prada dress. It’s really beautiful but I think her headband ruins the beauty of the dress a little bit. From afar, the headband doesn’t look too out of place but close-up, it doesn’t belong.
Kate Hudon’s Atelier Versace dress is absolutely exquisite in the back, but I am not a big fan of the front. The shoulder pads are a little masculine, which in some cases isn’t a bad thing, but not in this case.
I have not much to complain about looking at Charlize Theron’s Dior Haute Couture dress. Although this picture sort of makes her dress look like chop sticks. I am a little curious to see what her overall appearance would look like if her hair was slicked back.
I should probably stop criticizing now. I guess all the stress from midterm week is coming out in this post. Good luck everyone!
