Oscar Night ~ Red Carpet Favorites

They call him Oscar

and we wait all year
for him to arrive

so tonight I sit
and watch the festivities
stay up way too late
and swoon

I did not get all dressed up
and go to an Oscar party
although I was invited to one

I could be drinking one of these
but I am sipping on water
and snuggled on the couch
in my jammies

I missed some of the red carpet show
but caught some on line

here are my favorites:

Anna Kendrick in Elie Saab
this looked much better on tv

Sigourney Weaver
I love me a red dress
and this one is a classic
simple & elegant

Zoe Saldana in Givenchy
look at those ruffles!

Tina Fey in Michael Kors
this reminded me of classic Hollywood

SJP looking very Carrie like
in Chanel

Academy Award winner
Sandra Bullock in Marchesa
love this girl!

throwing in a little eye candy here
one of our home grown Canadian boys
Ryan Reynolds

Penelope always looks good
I do not think I have ever seen her
looking bad...
Donna Karan Couture

Queen Latifah looking elegant

Mariska in Vera Wang
she always looks good
I want to be her...

oops ~ more eye candy
the ever handsome Gerard Butler

Elizabeth Banks in Versace
loving me some more ruffles

Demi looks stunning
in this Atelier Versace!

Cameron really hit this one
out of the park in this Oscar de la Renta

I saw the picture first and the jury was out
but when I saw it on the screen
I liked it ~ not love ~ like
Vera Farmiga in Marquesa

you don't think I would do an
Oscar post now without George
did you??

I also love that they did a tribute to
John Hughes

I grew up in the 80's
with his movies
The Breakfast Club
Pretty in Pink
&
many others


seeing some of the Brat Pack
up on the stage
made me smile.

So now ~ way past my bedtime
I head up the stairs...

Did you watch?

Hello! I just found your great blog! I did watch and also drooled over all these gorgeous gowns! My absolute favorite favorite favorite dress was Zoe Saldana's!! Oh my goodness I can't get over that dress. So beautiful. I also loved Sandra Bullock's:) She looked amazing.

Happy Monday!

Great choices and great post Lori :)

Love Kim's comment about Elisabetta!! I really didn't like her dress that much...she's Italian for goodness sake, pick a better dress! And George. what's with the long(ish) hair..no, no, no!!

Funny how we both loved Mariska's dress.

Vera Farmiga is so beautiful, I loved her in "Up in the Air" and altho I didn't see the dress live, it just looks way too much....how could she even move!!

I saw Gerard Butler talking to Ryan on the red carpet...man, he is so handsome!!
