Last night was my Super Bowl, World Series, Stanley Cup, Winston Cup and Wimbledon all rolled into one. I have been watching the Academy Awards since I was a little girl and there is nothing on television I would rather see …. nothing. I am never disappointed even if the jokes are awful, even if the gowns are drab, even if there are protesters, streakers and a terrible host. The ultimate goal for me is to see clips of my favorite movies, watch as they poke (carefully scripted) fun at each other and see how the female star’s gowns stack up.
The 2012 Academy Awards was one of the best in recent years. Was it Billy Crystal? Maybe. Was it Angelina’s leg? Perhaps. Was it the fact that every single nominee went all- out this year? Definitely. The fashions were hot this year and they came in all shapes, size and colors. From where I was sitting, there were some clear winners:
So many women are afraid to experiment with bangs but, when done right they can be their own fashion statement. Look how the mousy bridesmaid turned to sexy siren just with a glittery gown and red hot bangs.
Look how these ladies managed to have their hair down and still look dressed up. Trust me, taming tresses to look this good without having an up-do is hard work for a hairdresser. Beautiful, natural and so sexy!
I imagine one of the best things about being a celebrity is being able to pick any one of these drop-dead diamond necklaces to wear ( for free) for the evening. The only thing better would be owning it and being able to wear it anytime you want… right, Oprah?
The biggest winner of the night? Uggie. This dainty dog from the Academy Award dominating movie “The Artist” stole everyone’s heart….. including mine. He was properly dressed, too.
Who were your big winners of the evening?
