Guest Post: Oscar Fashion Wrap-Up!

My lovely friend Sara always writes an Academy Awards Red Carpet Wrap-Up, and this year she's sharing it with Daddy Likey readers. Read on for her fabulous fashion recap!

With the rise of the Personal Stylist, we really can’t look forward to seeing anything like this slip onto the red carpet anymore:

Demi Moore, Academy Awards, 1989

Except, I forgot about Whoopi:

I mean, it’s nice to see Whoopi out of her oversized white t-shirt and ill-fitting vest, but really? Leopard-print Maxi dress is your next choice? I don’t blame you, Whoop. I blame your inner circle.

Strapless haute couture ball gowns with belts, one strap à la Michelle Obama (I’m talking to you, Reese Witherspoon), and shimmery petals, scales and napkin tiers were popular among the starlets, which is why the understated Tilda Swinton is always appreciated:

I’m pretty much in love with this beige top and black skirt from Lanvin.

I might be in the minority on this, but I would like to remind everyone that the Academy Awards Ceremony is not Prom 2009:

Miley Cyrus actually did wear this to prom last year.

Next up, SJP's Prom Queen with a little touch of Janet-Jackson-Superbowl danger! Watch out Ferris!


Most Improved goes to Dame Streep, who has had only 40 years and 15 nominations to get it right, and finally did with this awesome off-the-shoulder, soft putty loveliness known as Alberta Ferretti. Now, about that hair…


Best Dressed goes to Natalie Portman for this pretty-in-pink Rodarte:


I love me some Amy Adams in Carolina Herrera, breaking all those style rules with red on red and sporting a huge beaded necklace right in the middle of something resembling the Great Depression without the dustbowl or the hoovervilles. Ka-ching!


Umm, yeah. This is so incredibly weird, and I kinda like it:


Double-digit plastic surgeries, one-punch away from Alzheimer’s, and I still think you’re hot:

Keep rocking the Jean Paul Gaultier, but only while wearing a choker with a small photo of your dead dog around the neck. So sexy.

And finally:

The best dressed crew of the night. (Is that my cousin Todd standing in the background?)

im so glad that you posted the kids, i really thought the little boy on the left was the best of the night.

I loved Tilda and I don't always... But I'm hating the online sources panning this outfit. I think it's just lovely.

Agreed about SJP - she looks like Pam Anderson.

Mickey Rourke is so wrong he's right. He just wouldn't have been the same if he'd been in a bow tie and coattails like the rest of 'em.

WendyB said...

Gotta love Mickey.

i second -h of candid cool he was the best!

ambika said...

I was so *not* digging SJP's tas--that dress simply did not fit.

& I dug Amy Adam's outfit too. It was by far my fave of the night.

Bella said...

omg, i LOVE miley cyruses dress!!! i hate miley, but her dress is so GORGEOUS! did she really wear it 2 her prom?!?!?

jazzjune said...

Am I the only one who thinks that top dear Ms. Swinton is wearing looks like it's grown out of her flesh? Seriously, her stylist needs to stop putting her in skin-tone clothing. She's gorgeous, I just don't want to see her looking like a mutant bat-woman about to unfurl her wings.....

Apple Diva said...

@jazzjune, Ms. Swinton does not use a stylist *i know, i know*

SJP reminded me of Madonna. Was I the only one to see that.

April said...

I can't believe that Demi Moore outfit was 20 years ago. OMG.

christine said...

Joanna Goddard said...

those little dudes were so cute!

(arrives late to the party) I loved Amy Adams' dress. And I read somewhere that Philip Seymour Hoffman was growing out his hair or something for his next role, and rather than deal with styling it, he just put on the hat.
