Well, in the future I will not be parked in front of the television, computer and my cell phone getting red carpet updates early in the day. When it rained all the stars had to stay home because they were worried they were going to get rained on. Umbrellas just won’t do!
So E red carpet (after their 2 hour pre red carpet coverage where they made predictions! REALLY? Seriously how bored are we when we want to watch predictions on clothing. This was not Kate Middleton! This was Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence. Lovely girls. But, do we really care? I didn’t. That’s why I only watched one hour as opposed to the two! Geez. I have a life!)
The E red carpet coverage started and it was an HOUR before we saw anyone. B list actors should have had better publicist. They should have had their cars moving to the front asap and getting out earlier. Ryan Seacrest would have spent at least 15 minutes talking to them. But, if they had a good publicist…..that’s probably why they didn’t get there too early. Too much talking from some of these actors can really go awry quickly.
Ireland Baldwin…..She’s about ten years from her own crazy train interview on the red carpet.
The carpet was pretty dull. I think these Hollywood stars have either really grown up and gotten it together, or the rain really had everyone on edge so they did their walk and got inside. When Lady Gaga walks the carpet (at the end) and looks like this
Then you know it’s going to be a bit of a long show.
There was not any fashion mishaps that left me numb. For the most part everyone looked pretty good. Except for their over botoxed faces. We’ll get to that in a moment. But, I did feel that there were a lot of women that either played it safe or just didn’t care. And the people that don’t usually care ended up looking fabulous because of it.
Glenn Close....in Zac Posen
I thought for sure when I saw Glenn Close on stage, that she only had worn this dress on stage. I figured she had worn something that looked like “Swamp Thing” on the red carpet. I was so surprised! This was on of the BEST looks ever for Glenn Close. I mean, color me impressed. She brought her A game. Now. I know people will not all agree. But, when you look at all the dresses as a whole last night, this was a stand out in a good way!
Anna Kendrick in J Mendel
Glenn can thank girls like Anna. When Anna showed up in what can only be considered a longer version of a costume from Dancing with the Stars, I just sighed. She will have to work ten times harder for me to ever care again. Thigh high split, with pleats, and cut outs. What was she going for? Can Can Girl tryouts? I totally felt like it was DWTS night where they do the samba.
Kristin Chenoweth as a Statuette
Kristin Chenoweth is one of those actresses that I never know why they are in attendance. What does she do? Sing, dance? In what? I still ask that. In what? Her hair looked great. She looked pretty….until you saw the dress. It was like Tron. And I really didn’t enjoy her ‘humpfest’ on the red carpet with her date. Who was he? And did he really like having her tongue in his ear? Gross.
I think Bette Midler gave a great performance. I had it on mute so I couldn’t hear her sing. That’s why it was so great. I myself, have listened to “Wind Beneath My Wings” way too much. I don’t like the song. Never really did. But, I pretended too at the time because that is what you were supposed to say! I mean it would be like saying you didn’t find kittens cute. You’d seem like a monster. So for years I would act like that movie and song moved me beyond words. I think it was a good movie. However, I don’t see why we still have to hear that song.
I was shocked at who wore dresses that we’ve seen.
And just because they are stunningly gorgeous they thought it would go unnoticed. I’m talking to you Gelina.
Gelina in Elie Saab
This was the exact moment that I knew Elie Saab is my kind of Lebanese fashion designer that I can only assume is gay? Because clearly he loves Golden Girls.
Betty White wearing Elie Saab of 80s.
I get that Gelina played it down last night because it was Brad’s night. But, this just cracked me up! It was a total dress from the Golden Girls. And if Betty White didn’t wear it in the episode “Love Rose” in season 2, then I am pretty certain she wore it to the Emmys along the way. This was her style! She owned it. Gelina was just borrowing it last night as far as I am concerned.
The things I found odd last night was how safe everyone played it.
Amy Adams is safe....again.
Blue. In Gucci. Jewelry….none other than earrings to talk about and even that bored me. A bun on her head. No spray tan. And everyone loved that. I think she needed some color. Like lipstick? A chunky bracelet. A necklace! Something!!!! A tattoo would have made this better. Something.
Anne Hathaway in Gucci
they say this is Gucci. I think it’s off the rack and was just bedazzled! She must not be working? She needed food, maybe can’t afford any? She’s very thin. She also needs to just let the short hair go….it’s time to extension that up and pretend she’s Britney.
Brit Brit posing for prom.....
Don’t you love this pix of Britney and the guy she will probably not marry but date for two years? She looked fabulous going to Elton John’s party.
When you are pregnant you get a free pass. Elsa Pataky probably ruined it for all the girls in the future. Because, she had side boob, and looked like she had a big saggy boob for a stomach. SORRY. Gotta call it like I see it. People are talking about the metallic pattern I am sure. But, I didn’t even notice it until today. This was terrible. Where were her SPANX? They make those to hold the belly up. She needed it. Her stomach hanging like that made me think she is going to have horrible stretch marks (and none of that palm oil will fix that!) Plus, how uncomfortable? The thing is, it didn’t look much better from the front even with her hubby next to her.
Chris Henworth doesn't look happy
I hope this baby comes soon! She has lost her mind is all I can think and once the baby is here she’ll be back to making better decisions!
Kerry Washington has been praised for months now, on her fashion choices on the red carpets.
Kerry Washington for Glad
Then she wore this last night. Everyone has ripped her apart. I’m not going to say it was horrible. But, it wasn’t great. I also watched her walking from behind a lot and she is at that stage where she is close to waddling. She is not looking to be in a dress that is tight. There are not a ton of choices. What I can’t get over are the way people on the Red Carpet yesterday were raving and then today we see what they actually thought. That bugs me.
This is Jason Wu, who finally made a debut on the red carpet at the Oscars. The material was not the best and it unfortunately got wet. So that is sad. She looked beautiful but it wasn’t knocking it out of the ball park.
Cate Blachett in Armani
Cate Blanchett was a fave to all….but me. She always wears stuff that I feel like I’ve already seen on just about anyone else. She makes me feel confused. It’s like I see something she wears and I get all excited…then I blink and I start questioning myself. Why do I like it? Can it be that good? Because usually in her case…it’s not!
Julia Roberts in Givenchy...
She tried. After that 9 to 5 outfit she wore last we saw her………you don’t remember?
Who wore it better? Besides neither of the above? Pearls really DON’T dress up any outfit! I can’t believe Whoopi wore the same dress last night. She also gets on my nerves with her “I don’t dress up.” Uhhh no kidding! You also dress like a homeless person and act like you know so much. Guess what Whoopi, you don’t. The length on the faux pearls proved that last night! I don’t think she should be invited any longer. It’s disgraceful!
Julia in the Givenchy. She gets props for trying. But, that’s all. She tried. I am not saying she succeeded. Just like that time she got married in barefeet and tried to be country chic. She didn’t succeed then either. In fact other than her previous Oscar win…..she’s starting to worry me.
There’s a saying that we all go back to where we came from. That’s why my daddy likes to say, that he thinks I will end back up in the county in which I grew up one day. I don’t know how to take that sometimes. But this is who I think Julia will end up again.
Julia Roberts Wedding in 1993
A dress that wasn’t ironed, barefoot, without a pedicure or manicure if I was to bet money and wrapped in tulle straight off the bolt from Joanne Fabrics.
I just wanted to cinch her dress up last night. It was too loose in the back when she was walking. The lace on her should have been put on Lupitas chest and Julia needs to start going to things with her husband. I am pretty sure that girl is playing it loose and fast. She goes to these things and acts like she doesn’t even have a hubby a bunch of kids or a Santa Fe styled home in New Mexico that really isn’t that great after all! It’s in New Mexico! You can only pretend living in desert heat and staring at hot air balloons are so interesting and so good for keeping you ‘grounded’ for so long. If that was really going on then she would show up wearing more ponchos.
Biel in Coco
Jessica Biel got the chain email that was sent out to wear something metallic. Y’all know I worship at the house of Chanel…..often. I mean. Chanel does no wrong.
Biel was the ONLY one in Chanel last night. She is the only person I know that can make a dress look like it’s off the rack though. Her hair was meant to look messy but stylish. Not quite. She needed more color. She didn’t even have false eyelashes on! Her accessories were not all that either. It was all metallic! Which sounds good on paper. But, without lashes or lipstick obviously not!
She presented with Jamie Foxx and giggled thru most of it. I get this feeling that she is still this awkward teen on the inside. She is probably super duper smart. So she played that card a lot while dating Justin Timberlake. But, secretly I think she herself is even shocked she landed JT. Which makes me sad for her. Her acting career seems stalled. I hear she is opening a restaurant (which can we talk about? I think she is still threatened to this day not by the ex Cameron Diaz, but really the first true love Britney. Britney had a restaurant that failed. Jessica is totally taking a plunge in the restaurant world to see if she can make it bigger than Britney. Given what a flop Britneys place was, it will not be hard! Score for Jessica.) I think Jessica is the wife that is always ‘ok’ with her hubby being busy (you know when he’s having his sleepovers at Jimmy Fallons) and says she is fine with being alone. But, secretly that is a ticking bomb waiting to happen. I’m not saying JT and JF are anything more than BFFs. I’m just saying they really love being together and find that life is so much better when it’s only the two of them together dancing, singing and doing facials while eating a tub of ice cream together and making prank phone calls.
Stay tuned….Part II
