Oscar’s 2010 Red Carpet Winners & Losers

with 4 comments

If there was one major disappointment yesterday at the 82nd  Academy Awards, it was the lack of fashion faux paus. You know those dresses that make you go ‘Oh Dear’.There was no repeat of the Bjork in-the-dead-swan-dress incident nor the Isabella in her ballerina finest.In fact,I’d say it was the best dressed Oscar crowd to date,from tight body con dresses to vintage to fully blown ball gowns.Here are just a few of Hollywood’s finest in their finest:

Diane Kruger in Chanel                              Cameron Diaz in Oscar de la Renta

Up in the Air star Anna Kendrick      Double Winner,director Kathryn Bigelow

Miley Cyrus in Jenny Packham             Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab

Special Mentions go to Brit  actress Carey Mulligan and Twilight star Kristin Stewart.Best Supporting Actress nominee Carey  wore a quirky Prada dress embroidered with tiny knives,forks and scissors on the bodice.The star said of her dress :”I didn’t wear it to make a statement,I just thought it was cool.”

Whilst socially awkward Stewart  gets my ‘Most Improved’ award for looking amazing ,managing to not embarass herself for a whole evening, and actually cracking a SMILE for once!Maybe it had something to do with presenting an award with her absolutely gorgeous co-star Taylor Lautner!

I also feel I should mention Ben stiller who decided that simply turning up in a tuxedo and presenting the Best Make Up award wasn’t good enough for him, the comedian had to go  one step further  by spoofing 2009’s most popular film Avatar. Turning up in head to toe blue make up  (complete with tail!) in honour of the films blue stars.In my opinion it just made him seem like an attention seeking idiot,and does anyone else think that it makes his teeth look really yellow?

Of course with every rule there are a few exceptions.I said above that there weren’t any fashion errors at this years Oscar’s.Well I lied.Zoe Saldana what were you thinking?  SJP? And of course you can always count on Pricey to lower the tone of any occasion!          

What did you think of this years Red Carpet ?See even more red carpet gowns here on the Oscar’s website as well as who won what, Sandra Bullock’s rambling speech and Kathryn Bigelow beating ex-husband James Cameron in every major catergory.

It’s like Spiderman,but Chanel

Craziest thing i’ve come across this week is that fashion powerhouse Chanel, the epitomy of chic, are releasing a range of temporary tattoos.

Just like the ones you used to get in Spiderman chewing gum, Chanels ‘Haute Couture Tattoos’  are the same that we all had when we were kids.Costing £49 for a pack of 55, the tattoos will go on sale in March and have already been sported by celebrities such as Daisy Lowe and Agyness Deyn.

Officially entitled ‘Les Trompe L’œil de Chanel’, each temporary tat set will have 55 designs of flowers, birds, necklace style designs, cuffs and of course the infamous double-Cs

A  reporter who tried them out has said :”my ineptitude at applying them means a colossal wastage rate, with blackened bits of logo curled about me like dead flies.”

What do you think? would you buy these tattoos to have a taste of high fashion, or like me do you think they are a collossal waste of money for somethin that just looks,well, tacky?

Wow, what an eventful night the Brit Awards were this year! in a night that saw Lily Allen ascending from the sky on a rocket, Liam Gallagher throwing his Brit award into the crowd and ex-Gucci boss turned producer Tom Ford presenting the award for best album,here are my outfit highlights of the night.


Florence  in a gold sequinned  minidress, Fearne rocking the casual look and Lily in Chanel.

Pixie Lott                                                         Alesha Dixon                                        Alexandra Burke

Special mention has to go to triple award winning act Lady Gaga who arrived wearing a three layer tribute to the french revolution, then whipped it off during a special performance of ‘Telephone’ and ‘Dance in the Dark’ to reveal an all over lace catsuit whilst playing a piano/guitar/keyboard hybrid which she has dubbed the ‘Gagatar’.Lady Gaga dedicated her performance to ‘Lee’- late fashion designer Alexander McQueen.
