Oscar Party

Jessica Alba in Versace (2006)
Charlize Theron in Gucci (2004)
Demi Moore in Versace (2010)
Natalie Portman in Rodarte (2009)
Michelle Williams in Vera Wang (2006)
Kate Hudson in Versace (2003)
It's finally Friday and I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend with lots of rain (and indoor activities) as well as a date with girlfriends to watch the Oscar's on Sunday.  And by "Oscar's" I mean "red carpet" since I'm admittedly more interested in the gowns than the awards.  In an effort to prepare myself for all the beautiful dresses, I've been reminiscing on my favorites from years past.  Will you be watching the Oscar's this weekend?

I'll be watching the red carpet and the first maybe half an hour or so of the ceremony before I'll lose interest. I love the dresses and the Best/Supporting Actor/Actress awards but the rest, not so much.

Have a great weekend, Valerie.

Taylor said...

I will!!! And from your picks above Michelle Williams Mustard is my absolute fav!!!!!

I secretly really hope Natalie Portman steps it up - she hasn't been looking great at the past award shows with her bump!

Have a great one!!!

Joanna said...

I like the dresses the most.. and the big awards, but I'm usually most excited to watch Fashion Police the next day and hear Joan Rivers hilarious critiques. Have a great weekend!

Marisa said...

I'm actually going to dinner at Girl and the Goat (top chef's restaurant in chicago) terribly hard to get reservations for, i think i made mine in november. so my dvr will be set for the oscars!

i absolutely love the red carpet and the acceptance speeches. those get me! i'll be the weird girl sitting there kind of weeping when the actors get emotional. i don't know what's wrong with me...

have a great weekend!
