Because of her sh-tty posture, again…the photos did not do this gown justice. It is an AMAZING dress up close. Have a look at it on the runway – the detailing is divine. So the choice, in other words, was perfect. How it was worn however is another matter. Didn’t like the hair, the hair was atrocious – the hair was a 12 year old wearing mamma’s old costumes. Full Story

Best Just Missed: Cameron Diaz

After seeing her in person, I’m considering never calling her a Hermy again. And this hurts me. It hurts me more than you will ever know. Because I love Hermy Cam and my smutty existence just isn’t the same without Hermy Cam. But for the sake of objectivity, in real life, Cameron Diaz is actually quite feminine. Full Story

Best Red & Rehearsed: Nicole Kidman

The loop around the neck is causing some controversy – being the superstitious bitch that I am, I personally wouldn’t want to go anywhere near the suggestion of a noose, though I suppose when it comes to a lot of things, including facial freezing, Nicole and I don’t exactly see eye to eye. Still, in terms of high fashion, in terms of how she brings it on these occasions and her unwillingness to play it safe, more often than not, I love Nicole’s style choices and last night was no exception. Full Story

Most Disappointing: Eva Green

It’s not that I don’t think she looks beautiful. Because of course she looks beautiful. But she also looks the same. Same vibe from the BAFTAs and the Bond promo all over Europe, same groove for months: the wonky hair, the dark eyes - it’s gettin’ kinda tired. And you never want to deliver the expected, right? That dress is a dream though. Full Story

I’m sorry…been a little slow on the draw today – still haven’t slept, still wrapping up today’s show for eTalk, and have just been assigned to one more day in LA. Perhaps I’ll run into Orly again at the crack of dawn in the Roosevelt lobby? Anyway, a thousand apologies for the delay in finishing up the Fashion Review, particularly to Susan in Washington who wrote to express how disappointed she was that I haven’t been able to get to it. Full Story

Worst Chest Armour: Jada Pinkett Smith

It’s one thing to pose in a gown like this and look fabulous. And had I only seen her in still photos, I’d be singing a different tune. But the problem here is that she had to move in it and when she moved it in, the corset became a chest plate – like literally a steel shield better suited to dodging bullets than rockin’ the Oscar red carpet. Full Story

Worst Old Lady: Anne Hathaway

It’s just SO TRAGIC! Joan Rivers wouldn’t wear this. Laura Bush wouldn’t wear it either. Maybe some 80 year old socialite who smells like Gin & Ben Gay? But on Anna Hathaway? Young Anne Hathaway with a luscious body and an even sweeter personality? (she’s shooting in Vancouver, has been gracious and kind on set and off) Young Hathaway who apparently can’t NOT fail at a big event? Seriously gossips… I hurt for her. Full Story

Worst Dye Job: Clive Owen

In photos, because of the light and the flashbulbs, you really don’t get the sense. In photos, because of the light and the flashbulbs, Clive Owen was The Hotness. And he still is The Hotness. Except for the hair. In person, the hair was recently coloured and coloured not that well. A shade too dark and…well…I don’t know how to describe it but there were some blending issues, you know? Like what a fugitive on the run would look like if he picked up a box of L’Oreal Preference from the drug store and changed his hair in a gas station bathroom to avoid detection. Full Story

Ah…no. Absolutely not. Absolutely never. Absolutely under no circumstances, I don’t give a sh-t who you are, I don’t care if Xenu himself arrived in his spaceship to bless it … this dress is WRONG. And this dress on the Oscar red carpet is not only wrong, it is a serious sign of disrespect – an insolent contamination that should not go unpunished. Full Story

Most Surprising: Celine Dion

This is a woman who has tried and failed miserably with a backwards suit jacket and matching fedora at the Oscars. As such, all things considered, I’m thinkin’ tonight was a bit of shocker. Dare I say it? Celine looked almost normal. Until she started cheese-spraying the crown during her tribute, but still. Full Story

Quick fashion interruption – thought you’d want to know. Ben and I were waiting to be picked up outside the Roosevelt at 4am for morning talk show interviews. Orlando Bloom rolls in with a wingman or two, heads upstairs, comes back down a few minutes later and an SUV full of giggling girls is idling at valet – you’ll be happy to know he travels in an environmentally friendly SUV. Full Story
