Week 8: Oscar Rundown!

I have vivid memories as a kid staying up past my bedtime to watch the Oscars year after year on the east coast.  I was a movie junkie at a young age and the glamorous Oscar spectacle was always so alluring as a girl living in the 'burbs of Long Island.  Nothing seemed better than Los Angeles, the Shrine Auditorium (where they used to be held), and the red carpet of: SEQUINS

Celine Dion's 1999 backwards white suit jacket


Nicole Kidman's 1997 chartreuse embroidered Dior dress

I was anxiously awaiting today's show to get my yearly fill of glamour, couch-side.  There were a few pieces I loved and already the DIY wheels are turning in my head!

I love bold colors, so Michelle Williams' Louis Vuitton dress...

Michelle Williams!

...and Emma Stone's red Giambattista Valli...

Emma Stone!

...were two of my faves.  I was on board with Emma's bow at the neck, even though some who were around me said she looked like a present waiting to be unwrapped.  I guess I'm just a bow gal :)

I was totally loving Jessica Chastain's complete look.  Her McQueen gown was regal...

Jessica Chastain!

...and anything that's hand embroidered just makes me giddy!

One of my favorite parts of the night was how Angelina Jolie's leg made such a spectacle in her Atelier Versace (her leg has it's own twitter feed, @AngiesRightLeg!)...

Legs-gelina Jolie!

...that Jim Rash made a subtle impersonation that didn't click until the commercial.  Pure genius.  He wins for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best College Dean on a TV show (Community), and Best Sense of Humor in a not-so-thrilling awards show.

Which ones were your favorites or least favorites?
