Oscars 2012

Did you watch the Oscars last night? I only watched the Red Carpet Live on E! Here are some of my favourite and my not so favourite dresses and make-up!

Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli Dress  

I have to admit sometimes I don't like or "get" Emma's style. This I thought this looked great on her,
Not sure about some people saying "Best Dressed" though! (I will get to mine in a minute) The shape is gorgeous and adding that bow does make it Oscar-ish but red on a red carpet?? Hmmm...

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

This kind of made me go "meh" its beautiful and she looks beautiful but she always does so it wasn't like Wow! She just looked like her!
Its like at the prom/debs in school, the girls who always look beautiful just look like they always do! Put this dress and make-up on some one we usually see as plain and it would be a wow moment but sorry Ang its a meh! from me.

Kristen Wiig

Okay so Kristen looks lovely but I think the women in purple behind her looks so beautiful, I dunno who she is but when I was watching this live both me and my sister Treena pointed her out as looking better then most on the night, so mystery girl you get the thumbs up from me!! 

Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera

Tina was the only one wearing Carolina Herrera on the night and I do love it, I think its a great pick for her! Strapless seemed to be a running theme and not a necklace in sight! Some of the dresses kind of needed a necklace but I think it would have made Tina's dress too fussy. 

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad.    
Love Jen in this! The long sleeves were also a trend on the night but the cut outs give it a sexy "showing some skin" look unlike Shailene Woodley, the girl from The Descendants who covered up head to toe (Which I think was a nice change others didn't)

Oh I also have to add I LOVE Jen's make-up!! Tutorial me thinks...

Viola Davis in Vera Wang  

I loved the colour on her, not too sure about the old cleavage on show maybe a bit too much! Other then that I loved the dress, the colour and the accessories. 

 Penelope Cruz in Giorgio Armani dress   
 I love love love this!! It kind of reminds me of the dress Demi Lovato wore at the 2011 ALMA. I would love to see this dress in a nude pink but blue is gorgeous too! If I was young again and going to my debs I would have wore some thing like this! (If The Moderne in Cork had some thing like it! lol) 
As for the hair and make-up well its my favourite on the night! LOVE! 

What are Your thoughts? 
Who did you love/Hate?
What make-up would you most like to see a tutorial on?


  1. Definetely thought Penelope's dress was the best, but I was kind of disapointed with the make-up of all the girls. I wanted to see some pastel colours or something different! xo

  2. Yeah I agree, nothing really stood out for me!

  3. I thought Jessica Chastain's dress was really unique and beautiful.. And I actually really liked her makeup as well :) .. I agree with you on Angelina Jolie - there's no wow factor with her here.. I think a big part of the reason why is because she's wearing black.. She wears black very often.. I think if she had worn a really bright, bold color dress and makeup as well it would have been a wow factor, for me anyway (: ..

    1. Totally agree, bold colours would have been better!

  4. I think my fave would be Emma Stone. XOXO

  5. I loved Penelope's makeup, she looked flawless! And I really disliked Angelina's dress, maybe it wasn't the dress, maybe it was just the conscious effort you saw her putting in to get her leg stuck out every time she posed, it looked stupid IMO :) "Okay, your dress has a slit, and yes we know you have nice legs..."
