Anyone else watched the Red Carpet for the dresses.....

.....or is it just me that likes this shallow crap?!

Charlize looked great. I loved Jessica Chastain's dress. Brandi Granville was worst dressed and sorry to all the Jennifer Aniston lovers, but she did not suit that red dress. Jennifer Garner looked good in her Gucci dress. Jennifer Lawrence looked lovely, she is a young girl so perfectly fine to want to wear something more princess-ish.

Really? Nobody? blush or is it because I didn't think Jennifer A looked good....

Jennifer Aniston was lost in that dress she needed to be way taller to pull it off.

The darts in the dress of Anne Hathaway made her look like she had hard nipples.

WTF what Brandi Glanville doing there anyway.God woman cover up.

Jessica Chastain and Charlize Theron and Sandra Bullock were the style winners for me and Jessica Lawrence necklace was lovely but I didn't love her dress.

I was wondering what Brandi was doing there, awful dress aside.

Yes, JA not tall enough for that dress and the colour was wrong. Jessica C and Charlize were best two overall.

Agree with you completely (and I love the shallow crap). I was slightly taken aback at Jennifer Aniston's frumpy look, actually. Her upper arms are too thick for sleeveless (mine are the same, so I can say that) and her shaggy, floppy hair was far too casual. Anne Hathaway looked fantastic: gamine chic, but marred it a bit with that backwards necklace. Things have a 'right way around" for a reason.

Nicole Kidman looked gorgeous, although her husband is a tatty scruff who needs a scrub and a haircut. Quentin T the same. Make an effort, chaps. No good enough.

Loved the clever structuring in Naomi Watts' dress: beautiful, clever design. Dressed generally seemed a higher standard than usual with less frights & horrors. Jennifer Hudson was unrecognisable - I don't pay much attention to entertainment stuff normally, and recall her being a size 18 or thereabouts - so was very impressed how how slim and elegant she looked. I suppose this is old news, but the blue dress was superb on her. Very inspiring.

Renee Z has had some work done on her face, she looked lovely but quite different - I can't work out what exactly.

Brandi G (who?? had to look her up) had a horrible dress that was just embarrassing, presumably someone pressured her to wear that, awful.

Nice to see so many 60+ women looking fantastic (Shirley Bassey, Jane Fonda, Sally fields).

Ok not strictly Oscars, but Elton John's after party.

Thought Khole K looked lovely.Half way down the page...

Kelly Osbourne looked a mess.

I love Naomi Campbell's dress and my goodness, Britney, I had to look twice! That's the best I've seen her look in ages.

LittleAbruzzenBear Mon 25-Feb-13 13:42:29

Oh and agree about Naomi Watts, she is lovely anyway. The black and gold L'Wren Scott dress looked really good on Nicole Kidman.

Loved JC too and Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence had lovely after party dresses. CZJ looked a fright way too blingy and her face is becoming scary.

LittleAbruzzenBear Mon 25-Feb-13 13:47:46

Emma Roberts' dress looks fantastic on her, oh to be young!

BOF Mon 25-Feb-13 13:51:01

I thought Sally Field looked amazing- that train! Gorgeous. I loved the old school glamour of Jessica C too. Samantha Barks could have worn something a lot more special- she looked overwhelmed by the occasion and dressed as though she felt she didn't belong there, which is a real shame. Helena B-C did her entirely predictable eccentric bag lady routine. Nicole Kidman l

LittleAbruzzenBear Mon 25-Feb-13 13:51:11

What on earth is Holly Valance wearing? She looks like she raided the Dynasty wardrobe for Krystal Carrington.

ClaudiaCutie Mon 25-Feb-13 13:51:15

Oooh. Couldn't stop self looking at EJ's afterparty link - dismayed that Heidi K's floppy boobs were out there for everyone to see: awful! She made Britney Spears look tasteful and restrained, which takes some doing. It's odd that a woman with faultless face and gorgeous hair like HK thought it was a good idea to get her boobs out like that. On a cheerier note, yet another person I've never heard of, Nina Dobrev, looked fabulously elegant and chic in a beautiful black & white dress.

BOF Mon 25-Feb-13 13:54:03

looked very beautiful, I thought. Amanda Seigfried, ok. Anne Hathaway looked elegant but nipply. Loved Reese Witherspoon.

But if Jennifer Aniston is considered beefy of arm, I may just kill myself.

NotADragonOfSoup Mon 25-Feb-13 13:54:50

Did Kristen Stewart forget to brush her hair?

BOF Mon 25-Feb-13 14:06:03

Nina Dobrev is absolutely stunning in that dress- so elegant. Mikey Cyrus looked great for a young woman, and didn't fall into that B-list cleavage trap. Whos Emma Roberts? She looked great too. It baffles me why some of these well-advised stars with access to the best designers still so often make the mistake of thinking that we want to see as much tit as possible.

LittleAbruzzenBear Mon 25-Feb-13 14:09:17

I actually loved Kristen's dress, but she needed to sort her hair out.

I think that dress just didn't do any favours for JA. She has worn some lovely things in the past though.

Not sure who Nina Dobrev is either, but agree she looked good.

Heidi Klum, mean, the bust and the cut and the colour. She has a good figure, but she has been wearing some hideous clothing of late. The gold makes her look far too old.

PuffPants Mon 25-Feb-13 18:16:37

Jennifer Aniston looked gorgeous, I thought the red was sensational on her.

Anne Hathaway looked shockingly bad - who on earth styles her? Her after-party dress was even worse.

NotADragonOfSoup Mon 25-Feb-13 18:49:20

I thought JAnnistons dress was very meh. Almost looked like you could have bought it on the high street.

Apart from the nipple look, I loved what Ann Hathaway was wearing.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 25-Feb-13 18:57:22

Nina Dobrev is on a TV Vampire thing. She's very elegant, I think.
AnneH's dress was a shocker. Valentino had released a statement to say that she'd be wearing them, but then she rocked up in that nipular Prada. Maybe last minute dress disaster? She's styled by Zoe thingy, IIRC.

Barely noticed Kristen's dress, what with all my focus being on wondering what she was on, and why does she not find something else to do with her hair.

I thought JLaw looked perfect. If I was a 22yo dead cert to walk away with an Oscar, (and looked like her), I'd wear princess-style Dior also. And I love her even more for falling over so elegantly, and for her 'normal' replies to the stupid questions she gets asked, esp in the post-Oscars photocall.

My boobs are like hers and have never had any complaints
