Witches' Brew: Oscar Night: Give ‘Em The Cold Shoulder

Oscar Night: Give ‘Em The Cold Shoulder

Okay, so if you missed last night’s Academy Awards, here’s a recap:
Slumdog Millionaire, Slumdog Millionaire, Slumdog Millionaire, hey Sean Penn, Slumdog Millionaire, Slumd…., oh Hey Kate Winslet, girl your hair looks like a helmet, and Slumdog Millionaire.

Of course the real highlight of the night is always the fashion. The “who you’re wearing” question is more important than “uh, what film were you in again?” So, let’s take a look at the big trend of the night… there were lots of exposed shoulders on the red carpet. JJD is giving it the term the COLD SHOULDER. A few of the looks were fierce…and a few needed to be covered up in something else.

Freida Pinto

Love the color…hated the way it looked on TV. The sparkly flecks in the dress made her look wide in the hips and clearly she is not. She’s gorgeous and young. I wish she took more of a risk than this Galliano dress.

Queen Latifah

All hail the Queen. Can you really hate on her? Love the beading at the neckline. She looked as regal as ever in this Georges Chakra gown.

Heidi Klum

Origami folds and pleats are quickly becoming hot statements on the red carpet. And Heidi Klum showed quite a bit of leg in this Rouland Mouret number. Although the jewelry scared me a tad. But, you can’t say she doesn’t take risks.

Other one-shoulder looks… some hit, some miss. Just giving you options here kiddies!
Jada Pinkett Smith
Alicia Keys
Gayle King
Giuliana Rancic (spotted AGAIN without her wedding ring)
Marisa Tomei

JJD’s hands down fave of the night was Anne Hathaway. The scaling effect on this Armani made my mouth drop. How do you breathe in that thing?

Congrats to lovely nominees Taraji P. Henson and Viola Davis. Taraji makes me want new hair...I may have to see the Weave Goddess!

And, from the WTF files?
Alicia Keys…what was that rat atop your head?

Lisa Rinna... drop the needle, please!

Beyonce...stunning or couch-worthy?

My jury is out on this. I think she wears the mermaid look very well but some of the fashion pundits say this Dereon frock looks like a couch print. Jem things she could have used some earrings though.

And I’m posting this one because she’s serving it up like a hot plate of spaghetti for you Hollywood biatches! Check that hand on hip action!

And this has NOTHING to do with the Oscars…but last night, our first couple hosted a dinner for the nation’s governors. Lady O looks fabulous as always…

Raise a glass!
