The Bored Game (Oscars V)

So, Sandra Bullock. She won the Oscar! I don’t have a firm opinion on that, I haven’t seen her film. Meryl Streep was brilliant in Julie and Julia but when is Meryl Streep not brilliant? I really like Miss Congeniality. She gave a good acceptance speech. *Shrugs*

But her dress. It’s gotten a lot of attention. She was named Best Dressed by Joan Rivers et al on Fashion Police. Well, here’s my take:

Yawn.

I mean, she looks great. She looks like an Oscar Winner. She kinda looks like an Oscar. And I love her hair and make-up. But it doesn’t make me stop and stare. This is by far the best picture of the dress I’ve seen and I don’t really have much to say about it at all. So. I won’t!

She looks like a bruiser in a ballgown. She looks like she is hulking up! Look!

It’s my blog, Diane gets her own post! (Oscars I)

Diane Kruger is my favourite.

(Hi Quentin! Sorry about your loss.) Okay, when I first caught sight of this (after the “Diane’s arrived!” squeeee) I was scared. I’m not a fan of the halter neckline, there seem to be three different ideas going on top to bottom and that’s a LOT of dress. But the more I look at it, the more I like it (reminiscent of my reaction to the pink Lacroix she wore to the Globes). Especially the detailing, which is something that doesn’t jump off the screen, BUT I have tracked down every picture so let me show you Read the rest of this entry »
