Belle’s 2017 Academy Awards Recap
Feb 27, 2017
Another awards season has come and gone. Trophies were handed out. Speeches were made. Tributes paid. And had it not been for that little (aka monstrous) Best Picture incident with octogenarian Bonnie and Clyde, this would have been an Oscar ceremony like any other. But since most of us probably haven’t seen any of the nominees, let’s get to the matter at hand, the dresses.
I tried to make K watch the Oscar arrivals. I would have had better luck making him watch Sex and the City reruns in Ukrainian. So we watched The Walking Dead (apocalyptic zombies, I don’t get it either), and I pulled the looks I loved and loathed from the Internet.
I wanted to like this dress, and from the waist up, I do. However, the super sheer skirt might as well have a sign on it that says, “Yes, I’m trying too hard.”
Despite the poor tailoring (that hem would make my seamstress cry), I adore this dress. The neckline and bold color are the thing of my structured, minimalist dreams.
In Hollywood’s latest reboot, Laura Ingalls Wilder teleports to 1984 to attend the prom, hilarity ensues.
I love this dress. It’s like a Degas painting.
I’ve seen this dress before, they used it to drape the SCOTUS bench after Justice Scalia passed.
How to Get Away with Murder: This dress slays.
Best and worst dressed after the jump…
My worst dressed wasn’t even a contest. Oh, you though Dakota’s urine-yellow salute to Little House was the obvious winner?
Behold, Vanessa Hudgen’s salute to Gypsy. It looks like the latest incarnation of the lingerie-wedding dress trend with a side of Tessie the Tassel Twirler. Stay tuned for the inevitable fan dance. Sing out, Louise!
As for my best dressed…
Priyanka Chopra is an art deco vision in this Ralph & Russo dress. The structure, the open sides, the double cuff. It’s a sleeker, more modern take on the dress she wore last year, which was also a dream.
