Oscar Baywatch: Jennifer Lawrence

I’m not saying she didn’t look good. She looked great. Gorgeous. Hot. Super sexy. But you can’t deny that’s exacly the same shade of red. And it’s cut exactly like an elongated swimsuit. She could be running in slow motion down the beach…which…well… it’s not exactly the spirit of the Oscars, you know? I’m not sure we should be invoking the names David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson at the Oscars, you know? Photos from Wenn.com Full Story

Oscar Rude & Orange: Matthew McConaughey

First of all, what colour is he exactly? Did you see the telecast? To borrow from Bridget Jones, next to Scarlett Johansson, McConaughey was practically purple. Was it like that on your tv too? You know, I promise you in real life, his lady is spectacular. I wasn’t into her big ass dress mainly because it looks taffeta to me, but my friend Laura, this is a Laura dress. Full Story

Best Contract Fulfilment: Celine Dion

Written by Duana This woman. This – woman. She is so fantastic. She is not here because these are all her lovely celebrity friends – she is here because she was invited, requested to do a job. You know what her job is? Her job is “to sing the ‘Smile’ song to commemorate those who have died”. Full Story

Oscar Fringe & Tail: Emma Stone

Duana saw these photos before I did. I was heading back from the press room when my Blackberry went off with a note from her that read “you’re not going to like Emma Stone”. She was right. Very, very disappointed. This is Emma Stone at the Vanity Fair party. The fringe ages her. A lot. Full Story

Worst Biscuit Dress: Florence Welch

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 09:13:38 February 28, 2011 09:13:38

Written by Duana Florence of Florence and the Machine – who’s informally Florence Welch - obviously has a lot to be happy about. Not the least of which is being invited to perform at the Academy Awards. But did she look like she was enjoying herself? Or – let me rephrase – did she look, even marginally, like she was able to raise her energy level above ‘barely conscious and watching reruns on the couch’? If you’re tired or ill or something, fake it. Full Story

Oscar Bro-down: RDJ & Jude Law

RDJ should host the Oscars. Some of you suggested he should host with Sandra Bullock. Yeah I could get down with that. Neither of them needs it though. And they might be too big for it anyway. But sometimes it’s too short, you know? Watching him for 3 minutes, how he always hits the right note – funny, a little acerbic, but also self-deprecating – it’s much too short. Full Story

Mila Kunis

Written by Duana So about that dress. I stared at it for a long time. Oddly, the thing that got me wasn’t the cut but the colour, I’m generally not a fan of anything in that kind of candy-fied, pastellish hue. Anyway, as the show went on I told Michelle “Well, I think the colour is actually what saves it from being tacky”. Full Story

Worst Oscar Hair: Reese Witherspoon

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 08:16:00 February 28, 2011 08:16:00

Jesus. Who made this call? The only, only, only positive here are the earrings. Everything else is an Elle Woods homage to Julia Roberts. But it’s the hair that’s really the crime here. The dress is for a hostess but it’s the hair that really fills me with rage. Obviously the homemaker aspect of it is offensive in itself, but also… the fact that it requires a hairpiece to pull off, one of those tacky ass accessories you can order off the tv – WHY is this happening to Reese Witherspoon? She doesn’t usually f-ck it up so badly. Full Story

Best Oscar ConCERN: Helena Bonham Carter

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 07:54:39 February 28, 2011 07:54:39

Written by Duana Helena Bonham Carter was pretty intent on not pulling the focus last night which is actually rather charming. She knew it wasn’t about her. Yet – somehow she still managed, in her all black ensemble, to catch my eye – she was concerned. Full Story
