Oscars - revisited

This made me laugh:
an Steen, Dutch

Another Oscar Party Ruined by Charlie Sheen, 1650

Oil on canvas

from the blog: That Is Priceless

I've finally finished my blog post from last night.  Check it out  here

The Oscars - My Version

And the nominees for...

  Biggest Earrings are:
Gwyneth Paltrow.  Her make-up is completely CHANEL.

Mandy Moore, her dress was spectatular.
Marissa Tomei, in a vintage dress she actually bought because it was too valuable for the shop to loan.

Most Disheveled/Unflattering Hair:
Jeremy Renner & Scarlett Johansson in Dolce & Gabbana

Such unflattering hair, it's a shame because she looked lovely, her dress was beautiful.

Nicole Kidman (in Christian Dior) Those bangs drove me nuts all night!

Scariest Looking Attendee:
Cruella DeVille....opps, sorry, it's Sharon Stone, honest mistake

Most In Need of Lipstick:
Kate Blanchette in Givenchy
Hilary Swank

Unfortunate Usage of Lace:
Florence Welch (Florence & The Machine) in Valentino
Scar Jo in her harpsichord cover by Dolce & Gabbana

Mila Kunis in Ellie Saab, not a fan of the lace pasties, but she looked good.

Best Red Carpet Couple:
Javier Bardem & Penelope Cruz in L'wren Scott
Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves

The only Tim Burton & Helena Bonham Carter
Armie Hammer & Elizabeth Chambers

Livia & Colin Firth.  Livia's dress was by Gary Harvey & made from other recycled dresses.

Most Well Put Together:
Celine Dion in Armani Prive
Amy Addams in L'wren Scott & Choppard jewellery

Hailee Steinfeld in Marchesa.  I'm overlooking the headband to put her in this category
Michelle Williams in Chanel.  Perfect

Dame Helen Mirren in Vivienne Westwood.  She's my favourite (living) woman of style.
Natalie Portman in Rodarte.

Cheryl Hines in Johanna Johnson.

Classic Beautiful Make-Up:
Reese Witherspoon in (kinda boring) in Giorgio Armani Prive.
Sandra Bullock.  Chanel make-up.
Michelle Williams. Chanel make-up.
Anne Hathaway.  Chanel make-up.
Had Potential...Didn't Reach It:
The dress grew on me, but the hair killed it.
Halle Berry in Marchesa.  I felt it looked a little messy & I'm normally a fan of tulle!  Her make-up was Chanel & Revlon.

Not feeling Annette Bennings' dress by Tom Ford
Marissa Tomei in Vintage Couture Charles James.
Virgina Madsen in Romona Keveza
Gwyneth Paltrow in Calvin Klein.
Rhea Durham in Naeem Khan & Mark Wahlberg

Honourable Mention:
Cate Blanchette in Givenchy...I think I appreciate this dress.
Melissa Leo in Marc Bouwer.  I can't decide if I love it or hate it!

Been There, Done that:
Jennifer Lawerence in Calvin Klein

Scarlett Johansson in Valentino. 2006 Golden Globes

It seems Calvin is even copying himself as Jennifer's dress seems to be just a longer, red version of the white mini dress he designed that Alicia Silverstone wore in Clueless:

Fav Peeps of the Night:
Helena Bonham Carter in a dress by costume designer Colleen Atwood to celebrate film, rather than fashion.

Robert Downey Jr. in Prada. I heart him.  Wife Susan Downey looking very classy.
Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang.

oh Dame Helen, I heart you too!

Peeps I missed seeing:
Julianne Moore
Tilda Swinton

Look at these little kids playing hockey.

Too cute for words.
They came out after the 2nd period of the 'real' hockey game.

In other cute news,
Look at these bunnies:

This breed is called a Dwarf Hotot.  They wear eyeliner!!
They almost look like a cartoon.  

And then these little guys:

I think they're my favourite.

Another Netherland Dwarf rabbit

Since my long time companion and pet Lucy passed last August we decided not to get another dog right away.  Hubby and I both work out of the home all day and it's just not fair to keep a dog cooped up.  I'm allergic to cats and our apartment is too small for a litter box anyway.

I was fine for a while, but I miss having a furry little thing to cuddle with.  Last night I was trying to think about pets that don't need walking (or to be taken outside in snowstorms) and I started googling breeds of rabbits.  Aren't they just too precious?!
