2011 OSCARS best and worst dressed

Here is my list of BEST and WORST dressed for the 2011 oscars.  I have to say that this year, I was really not looking forward to the oscars.  Partially because I hate James Franco, and I think the other reason was because ABC was trying to hype the oscars up TOO much.  Usually when something is over-hyped, it’s because they don’t have confidence in their product.  In this case, it was James and Anne.  When the announcement came out that they would be the new hosts, a slew of media blogs and stations all had very negative responses.  Fans weren’t thrilled and well…it was all for good reason.  This Oscars show was the shortest in HISTORY at 3 hours and 13 minutes (or so), yet the show seemed SLOWWW and looonnngg.

In anycase, here’s my list of best dressed:

Mila Kunis–always gorgeous

Mila Kunis
Michelle Williams–LOVE this white vintage looking gown on her
Michelle Williams
Sandra Bullock–not of fan of the weird neckline top, but she looks stunning in red.
Sandra Bullock
Haley Steinfeld–Age Appropriate.  Love the cutesy glam look on her.
Hailee Steinfeld
Anna Hathaway–Hate the hair, love the dress on her.
Anne Hathaway
Helen Mirran–stunning.
Helen Mirren
Gwyneth Paltrow–Always knocks it out of the park
Gwyneth Paltrow
Hilary Swank
Hilary Swank
Halle Berry

Worst Dressed:
Nicole Kidman-LOVE her.  Hate this weird embrodered dress.
Nicole Kidman
Florence Welch–LOVE her, just hate the dress.  It doesn’t work well with her hair color in my opinion.  Plus her fair skin makes her just look washed out.
Florence Welch
Marisa Tomei–I love the top, but I can’t help but HATE the bottom.  I feel like the bottom should have been a really stiff tulle, or beautiful organza.  Not loving the difference in the two purples either.  To me, the bottom layers look cheap.
Marisa Tomei
Melissa Leo–This dress is not flattering and she can’t pull the lace off.
Melissa Leo
Helen Bonham Carter–Do I even need to say anything?

Kelly Osbourne for Material Girl

I’m not a fan of Kelly Osbourne, but I do have to admit that these pictures came out really well.  AND I like Kelly WAYYYYY more than Taylor Momsen with her Goth eyes. *shudder*








The Real Housewives of Miami: Not so caliente~

'The Real Housewives of Miami' Not So Hot

"The Real Housewives of Miami" Premiere Party

The Reals Housewives of Miami premiered last night at 10pm on Bravo, and well…they got less than great reviews by critics and ME!  I was excited to see this season b/c they were all hot.   (turns out it’s only from afar…)

The entire episode seemed very forced and awkward.  Granted they could have just been nervous from being filmed for the first time, but there was nothing that made the show special.  Will I keep watching?  Of course.  But so far…this baby seems to be in the same boat as DC and Atlanta to me.  EPIC FAIL.

Rachel Bilson Covers ‘California Style’ Magazine

From JustJared:

Rachel Bilson Covers ‘California Style’ Magazine

Rachel Bilson Covers 'California Style' Magazine

Rachel Bilson adorns the cover of California Style magazine.

Here is what the 29-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her sense of style: “To stick with fashion, that would be a little bit more predictable. But there’s no one in my demographic, or really any ‘celebrity’ who has a similar aesthetic as me, who’s doing home or tabletop design. I’m sort of obsessed with dishes. I’m always cooking and baking at home, and I hate going out. I’d love to do bedding, too.”

On her relationship with Hayden Christensen: “Without saying anything too specific, I can tell you that things are really positive right now. We’ll just have to see how it goes.”

On working with Josh Schwartz again: “Josh knows me so well. I mean, he’s married to my best friend. We’re all very close. He knows how I deliver a line. He knows that I can be, you know, funny. It’s much harder to be funny than it is to act in a drama. But I’m up for it.”


Fashionable outfits for work

It’s always hard to shop when you have a limited budget, and don’t want to buy two separate wardrobes (work and play).  Here are some outfits that would be gorgeous from 8-5 and perfect for dinner with the girls or a night out with your honey bunny.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick ARE engaged!

According to gossip blogs…on the last episode of “Kourtney and Kim take New York”, Scott proposes.  *Barf*

After watching all the fifty billion seasons of the Kardashian reality shows…I cannot understand why Kourtney stays with Scott.  Perhaps she likes the unstable relationship, the emotional abuse, the constant fighting and drama… or she loves what a douche-bag he is.

Who knows.  In any case, I predict this couple will divorce by their third baby (IF there is even a third baby).

Oh right…and they’re supposedly going to get their own reality show.  My guess?  TERRIBLE RATINGS.  *shudder*

–>Reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian is engaged – her longterm boyfriend Scott Disick popped the question as an explosive climax to her new show.
The couple was filming for the final episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York when Disick made his surprise proposal, according to Life & Style magazine.

But Kardashian is keeping details of the romantic moment – and any plans for their nuptials – under wraps until the show’s finale airs in April.

A source tells the publication, “The family is really happy about Scott and Kourtney’s engagement but they’re trying to keep it a secret so it’s a huge surprise on the show.”

Anyone who knows me, knows that Burberry is one of my all-time favorite brands.  With its classic nova check pattern, any accessory or clothing item is built to last as a staple in your closet.

This  opaque blue bag is a drastic change from the understated reputation of Burberry, but it’s still quite stunning.   Available at Nordstrom for $1,195.

PERFECT for summer 2011!

Affordable & Luxurious: White by Vera Wang

From Pink Orchid

Affordable & Luxurious: White by Vera Wang

I absolutely love the new line, White by Vera Wang, which debuts today at David’s Bridal. All of the dresses are gorgeous, and are anywhere between $600-$1400. The amount of detail is incredible for such affordable prices! The one thing that it makes me curious about though is for all of the brides who purchased gowns from the Vera Wang bridal collection (not from David’s Bridal), and whether they are upset that there is this new line of MUCH cheaper gowns that also have the Vera Wang name. Would you be upset?

Either way, I still love this line, and I think it’s wonderful that more brides will have access to great wedding gown designs because the price falls within their budget.

Aren’t they gorgeous? I especially love the strapless organza dress with hand cut-bias flange skirt in blush, and it also comes in ivory and soft white!

Top 7 Plus Size Models

From Fashion Indie

Increasingly, plus-size models are making it BIG. Larger ladies are snatching elite magazine spreads, being crowned queens at beauty competitions and bumping more and more skinnier girls out of the spotlight. Here are the 7 most sizable names in plus-size modeling.

The 7 Weightiest Names in Plus Size Modeling

1. Crystal Renn

Crystal Renn is leading the charge for plus-sized models. Renn, a size 8, posed for five major ad campaigns and seven French Vogue spreads last year alone.

2. Whitney Thompson

You may remember Whitney from America’s Next Top Model season 10 – she won the entire competition. Whitney went on to pose for Forever 21, Saks Fifth Avenue, People Magazine, Seventeen Magazine and a host of other fashion ads and editorials.

Marquita is a Ford girl who wears size 41-35-46. She’s been featured in Vogue, Vice, Tush, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle.

4. Kate Dillon

Ms. Dillon’s schoolmates dubbed her “Overweight Kate,” and the teasing took its toll. Kate became severely underweight though she won third place in Elite’s Look of the Year contest, earning the then-17-year-old a $75,000 contract. Kate’s malnourished and two-cigarette-pack-a-day lifestyle eventually made her fed up with modeling. She quit the business and moved back into her parent’s house. At the suggestion of a friend, Kate returned to modeling after a short break – this time as a plus-size model. She’s enjoyed modeling more ever since.

5. Gitte Lill

In addition to plus-size modeling, Gitte is also a dancer. The Norway-born beauty is backed by the Ford agency.

6. Natalie Laughlin

W magazine has hailed her as one of “the brightest stars,” and The Wall Street Journal writes that “people in the industry say the brown-eyed, 5-foot-9 model, size 12-to-14, is at the top of her game.” I can’t disagree. Natalie was featured as Liz Claiborne’s “Elizabeth” girl, and she’s earned the title of “Cindy Crawford of plus-size models” by some industry folks.

7. Alyona Osmanova

Alyona didn’t start out as a plus-size, but she was moved into the category. She’s earned a long list of career achievements, including walking for Marc Jacobs, Prada, Chanel and Givenchy. Alyona’s been featured in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Dazed & Confused and a host of other top-tier magazines.
