And The Oscar goes to………

8 Mar

Last night the world watched closely, anxiously awaiting the winner of Best Picture alongside many other prestigious academy titles.   Stand-up’s Monique took home a much-deserved Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, my girl Sandra Bullock locked in the title of Best Actress for her heart warming and theatrically brilliant performance as Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side, but the most anticipated sealed envelope of the night revealed Kathryn Bigelow, director of the “Hurt Locker” was the first female ever to be honored as Best Director.  The Hurt Locker was also awarded best picture of the year over the biggest grossing film of all time “Avatar”.Movied directed by winner of Best Director, Kathryn Bigelow

Taking home the gold Oscar is indeed a once in a lifetime achievement as they say but there are many of us like myself who look forward to the Academy Awards all year for the Red Carpet- the oh so fabulous fashion finale.  This year nominees and presenters didn’t disappoint.  From best dressed to what where they thinking, last night’s carpet was sparking with glitz, glamour and even my own personal raisons d’être: Vintage.

Celebrities showcased ball gown masterpieces from Couture houses like YSL and Chanel and big name designers such as Donna Karan and Marchesa.  Even Project Runway Designer, Chris March had his long-sleeved white gown worn by Oscar legend Meryl Streep.  Sandra Bullock looked absolutely stunning in her sheer Marchesa gown with floral appliqué.  Bullock won me over for best dressed through her simple yet chic presentation including her natural makeup and eye catching rouge lips.  Another noteworthy red carpet winner, as much as I hate to say this, the annoying and overrated Twilight Phenomenon Kristen Stewart.   Her deep navy mermaid inspired Monique Lhuillier gown elegantly transformed her from awkward to awe inspiring.photo taken from bnd.com

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards will be remembered for its fashion, celebrity turn out and most importantly historical moments.  This year was the first year the Academy nominated both a female and an African American for the honor of Best Director.  Change is in the air and the entertainment industry continues to inspire us and educate us on our nation, our government, our citizens and our world.  Congratulations to all the nominees and category winners.    See you next year Oscar.photo from Teen Daily
