2016 Oscars — Hits and Misses

For the first time in a long time (in my humble opinion), there were scores of beautiful dresses on the red carpet last night. Here are a few of them:

Alicia Vikander

The Oscars

Either I’m becoming bored and jaded or there really isn’t much to talk about. Most of the dresses at The Oscars didn’t warrant being placed in either my “love” or “hate” category, although a significant number of them fell firmly into “meh.”

With that said, here’s my take on last night’s dresses.

THE GOOD

Charlize Theron–Saw her in Barneys in Beverly Hills last week, and I’m smitten.

Charlize Theron

Jane Fonda–Making growing older look like a walk in the park

jane fonda

Jennifer Hudson–Rockin’ the blue bling

Jennifer Hudson

Sandra Bullock–Elegant, in spite of the sheer panels

sandra Bullock

Stacy Keibler–Of course, she looks great in everything. Good work, George.

Robin Roberts–Magnificent color on a magnificent woman

THE BAD

Melissa McCarthy–Singularly unflattering…from the color to the cut

melissa McCarthy

Louise Roe–This reminds me of the scene from “Carrie” where the bucket of blood is dumped on Sissy Spacek.

Kelly Rowland–Just. Too. Much.

kelly rowland

Helena Bonham Carter–Ah, Helena, you never let me down!

Helena Bonham Carter

Brandi Glanville–Why even bother putting on clothes? If those boobs survived the evening, I’d be shocked.

Brandi Glanville

Anne Hathaway–Darts as nipples…amusing look
