G-L-A-M at The Oscars

I love the build up to The Oscars, (I also take a certain pleasure from watching it in my Onesie while eating cake)

Pretty dresses, make-up, glamorous jewels, what's not to love? Oh the excitement.

(Seriously, I'm starting to think that The Oscars was the nearest thing I am going to get to a party in 2013)

The one thing that I don't understand though is how many people, including the media actually sit and watch The Oscars with the sole purpose of tearing peoples fashion choices apart like a pack of hungry fashionista wolves.

You could practically smell the arousal of the fashion pack when Ann Hathaway came prancing down the red carpet, (admittedly her nipples/darts on dress did arrive five minutes before her)

I didn't quite understand her dress choice but it was exactly that, a choice.

I've never understood who makes these fashion rules that say you can't wear this, you can't wear that.

Screw that.

Wear what makes you happy, whether you are walking the red carpet, food shopping, or doing the school run.

Life is too short to play it safe, to save something for best or to stick with the pack.

I don't know about you, but I want to stand out from the crowd, people may have HATED Bjork's swan dress, but when you think Oscars fashion, you know that you remember the outfit.

But can you remember ANYONE else's outfit from that year?

Why try to blend in, when you were born to stand out?

What do you think? Do you enjoy the Oscars red carpet or do you find the bitchiness uncomfortable as well?

Let me know.

  1. I hate the bitchiness and I really appreciate craziness, including Bjork's swan dress and other over-the-top looks like this one: http://wendybrandes.com/blog/2011/12/bjorks-swan-dress-should-meet-this-angry-birds-dress/

    I wore a dress printed with large dollar bills to a pre-Oscar party, so I walk the walk as well as talk the talk.

    It's a couple hours out of your life, why is it such a big deal to wear something a little crazy? Damn!

    1. Totally agree Wendy, and I KNOW you walk the walk as it shows through in your beautiful jewellery. Life is too short not to stand out.

  2. Its crazy, we have our own minds to make our own choices,we are not ones to judge!

  3. Such a good post. I totally agree, why all this bitching what someone wears it is their style and their choice. If you not like it keep your opinion to yourself. But then again the media makes money out of bitching anything..so it probably won't stop anytime soon.


  4. Totally agree. My favourite is always Helena Bonham-Carter!

  5. The pretty dresses bore me, I also love Helena Bonham Carter, loved Hugh Jackman's wife and her ass-kicking trouser suit, I couldn't tell you what Anne Hathaway wore the other night even though I spent an hour on the Daily Mail looking at all the pictures. I think with me it's the voyeuristic side of spying on a party you haven't been invited to. Always fun.

  6. I think Heken Hunt wore a H & M dress I believe and look good.
