I had a great time hosting an Oscar party for Orville Redenbacher’s last night. The prep work was so much fun and I always love hosting people in my home. The Academy Awards are my version of the Super Bowl and I get really into the whole thing.
Before I recap the party, I wanted to share some of my favorites from the Oscars.
Gwyneth Paltrow in Calvin Klein Collection
I love the color and the fit on her. Her blonde hair is perfection and she is perfectly accessorized. I have loved seeing her make the award show circuit and her Grammy and Glee appearances have made me a very happy fan!
Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Haute Couture
She can do no wrong. The color of this dress is absolutely perfect and so beautiful with her skin and hair color.
Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein Collection
The simplicity makes such a big statement. She is young and beautiful and with her one simple bracelet, she made such a big statement. I was a huge fan of this whole look for her. And I may take her hair color as inspiration to my next hair appointment.
Mandy Moore in Monique Lhuillier
I also loved Mandy Moore’s performance dress. I wasn’t able to find a picture this morning, but she wears blue so well. And she sounded great. I think Mandy is a classic beauty with a real body. I love the off-the-shoulder dress and the slight sleeve. The color is regal and elegant and I have just been so happy to see so much of Mandy Moore this year.
Jude Law and RDJ
I liked this moment because I love RDJ. That is all.
I thought she did a fantastic job. She was comfortable (except when she kept touching her stomach while wearing this dress) and poised. I love how theatrical she is and that she was just so excited to be up there! I need Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman to host together. I wasn’t at all impressed with James Franco.
But I loved Anne’s musical number and all of her hairstyles. I loved almost all of her dresses and I was very impressed by her, her age, and her ability to seem comfortable on stage while still seeming grateful and almost star-struck.
What do you love and hate about last night’s show? Who topped your best-dressed list?
