Academy Awards fashion round-up

Posted February 27, 2012

Our regular fashionista Brittany Tune is on vacation, so I am taking over the fashion round-up for Hollywood's biggest night. And boy were there some ugly dresses on that red carpet! Let's get right to it: 


Meryl Streep - She looks like she borrowed this outfit from MC Hammer.

Angelina Jolie - She is on this list because of the giant slit up the side of her dress. While she thought she was being sexy, all I saw was a skinny little bone leg that made me worry if she was eating.  I thought I had accidentally flipped over to "The Walking Dead" when I saw a closeup of her during the show. She was looking pale and frail and, frankly, I am worried.

Sandra Bullock - What was this? You always look so nice. Did you just decide to phone it in for once?! The top of the dress is what really bothers me. It looks over-sized and the patterns in the middle...is that a seaweed design?

84th Academy Awards ArrivalsEllie Kemper - She makes this list only because her bangs were trying to eat her face. The dress was fab. 






And I really want to love this dress but I can't.....

Michelle Williams - I love you, Michelle. I root for you. But I am not feeling this dress. I am never a fan of a dress that makes you look bigger around your hips. I can't stand the new trend on the red carpet - the peplum. It is a great idea because you can use it to sneak your small dog or bag of Cheetos into the ceremony under it, but it isn't attractive to me. 






The Best

Melissa McCarthy - The color, the cut, the belt around the waist - everything with this dress worked! 


Viola Davis - Love this color! She looked amazing!






Milla Jovovich - I have no idea why the star of the "Resident Evil" films was even at the Academy Awards, but she looked great! Beautiful dress, perfect hair. 


So, which looks did you love and which ones did you hate?!

    I think you worst and best are right on. Your comic descriptions of these styles were much like Joan Rivers commenting and I think it is fun to hear and read.

    These are the best/worst pics you could find? Please bring back the regular fashionista! Bad time to go on vacation. Bad time to bring in a 'Team Aniston' sub with no fashion sense. Go back to writing the obits!
