2011 Oscars: One Thing Wrong
Feb 28, 2011
If I could only say one thing about last night’s red carpet, it would be this: Criminal levels of boredom. At one point, I was so bored, I started shopping for skincare products on Amazon. There were dresses I liked and dresses that I hated but, basically, the carpet was a snoozefest.
The only recurring theme on the carpet (besides the snoring) was that so many ensemble’s were on the verge of greatness only to have their hopes dashed by one single thing that was wrong. Don’t believe me? Check out the looks below.
Hailee Steinfeld in Marchesa.
A lovely dress for a fifteen-year-old, but what the hell was with the headband?
Natalie Portman in Rodarte.
I can’t even imagine how difficult it is to dress a pregnant body, but there is never a good reason to choose an (allegedly) full-length gown that shows your feet.
Melissa Leo in Marc Bouwer
Technically, this dress has two things wrong. Eliminate the collar and sew up the slit. Now, isn’t that better?
Amy Adams in L’Wren Scott
That necklace looks like something you’d pick up at the local Claire’s. It also ruins the neckline of the dress. Ladies, if you have a high-neck, sequin dress, you don’t need a necklace. Period.
Mandy Moore in Monique Lhuillier
Dress is lovely, earrings are a disaster. With a dress this ethereal, a heavy, domed earring isn’t advised.
