Fashion critic strikes again...

I will first admit I was studying during the red carpet for the 2010 Academy Awards and slept through the show but as soon as exams, home work, and draft papers were handed in, I made sure to compile my favs. So this is a second hand review :) I'll try to do the gents next time.

I should do Fashion Fridays lol

I'm a Nicole Richie groupie (well, used to be when I had time)...I love her fashion choices and I love this too...beautiful!
Maggie, just looked too fab rocking exactly something I would wear. I mean, the accessories, the dress, I love it all.
I love to see the really fancy and just gorgeous stuff but as you can see, I'd rather wear simpler looks.

Sorry, Diane Kruger, but you're it. Even in Chanel (& I dream of Chanel).
OMG, Zoe, what happened? She usually looks great.
You look fab, Tina!
Mariah is clothed! I don't love the dress but we'll take what we can get. It's like she went from dressing like 15 to 55.
These 2 ladies are usually a steady thumbs up for me. What happened?
I would never wear this dress or recommend it for a friend but gee, doesn't she look fab in it? Jennifer Lopez is my DO for avant garde though some people didn't love it. I think the shape fits her well and doesn't overwhelm.
Vera Formiga is my DON'T for avant garde...too many ruffles. I'm not liking the shape though a lot of folks liked this look. I think pink looks good on most everyone...she must be in the minority. Plus the ruffles aren't very flattering.
But check the ruffles on this dress! Very hot, Elizabeth Banks looooved this!
How to do neutrals? Ask Anna Kendrick's cute!
Rachel McAdams and I have very similar dresses :) I love her dress...looks just like my dress from Niki's wedding. Need I say that she looks fab? And yes, the pattern on her dress is nicer than mine...I'd have gotten that one if I saw it (& could afford). But, I was like 8 months ahead of her in fashion teehee.

  1. TOTALLY agree with Nicole Richie. That dress is fabulous and the styling was on point. Ditto Maggie Gyllenhal. Love Rachel McAdams too - and yes it is reminiscent of yours. I do think that the dress is more appropriate for where you wore it though - a beach wedding.

    I LOVE Vera Formiga's dress...colour and all the ruffles! It was structured and My best dressed was Liz Banks - that dress was hea-ven-ly! I didn't mind Kate Winslet but I wish the gunmetal gray (is that what it is?) was a bit deeper/stronger.

    Zoe: sometimes I looked on it and liked it, sometimes I'm like myeh. I think it's the split PLUS the ruffles...gotta be one or the other I think. And even then, I tad too much ruffles, and the gradation of purples was off. Wasn't too keen on the bodice either b/c it was incongruous with below the waist.

    I need Tina Fey to step away from black or black with nude underlay. No comment on Mariah except in the words of Lt. Stichie: young girl wear yuh siiiize/young girl wear yuh siiiize.

  2. Thx for the comment darling :)

    I love the color on Vera's dress but if doesn't seem to flatter her...Zoe's dress still gets a nope...I didn't know Tina was notorious with black, the dress fit her wonderfully...poor Mariah LOL

  3. You are indeed correct, Shar. I agree with most of your assessments. Elizabeth Banks, especially. She's wearing the kind of dress most little girls dream about growing up to wear!
