Post-Oscar + Post-NY Fashion Week

POST-OSCARS

Well, can I pick ’em or can I pick ’em?
Ya, I really sucked at picking them. Out of the 24 awards on my sheet, I had only 8 right…
In other words, don’t take me with you to go gambling.

Was Heath Ledger’s family not great up there??
And Hugh Jackman did a fabulous job.
I loved how 5 previous winners personally spoke to each best/supporting actor nominee!

There were a few dresses worth mentioning, however, which is really why I watch:
Amy Adams, Kate Winslet (best dress in my opinion) + Anne Hathaway (who sang quite well!).

POST-NY FASHION WEEK

On a lighter note, my daughter A and I stayed up LATE LATE last week reviewing the latest NY Fashion week hilights. In a word? UGH!

I mean, really.
I don’t know what we were expecting, but perhaps clothing that actually makes you look BETTER rather than OHMYGOSH worse for wear? Really, people. Maybe I’m just too far removed from “the biz” to really appreciate the true art of fashion.

It was difficult to find some favorites, but one or two designers really hit our soft spots.

Chado Ralph Ricci : loved the asymmetry, loved the peekaboos, loved the fit and femininity, loved the retro. Loved it.

Ports 1961 : Layers, shimmeries but not shimmeries overload, flattering lines…

Fetherston, Fetherston, Project Runway :  LOVED Fetherston – texture galore, but understandable, not a mass of confusion. We really enjoyed the Project Runway outfit as well.

And last, but not least
Briana Reyes, Calvin Klein, Leifsdottir : I have GOT to have the Briana Reyes outfit. Gotta. And that Leifsdottir sweater? OHGOSH. Gorgeous.

There were a few others we picked as well, but these were our faves.
Can I just ask – what was UP with the pom-pom hats?

Having decent looking models who didn’t look completely pissed at the world helped sell us on these ones too. IMEANREALLY! Some of the models had the most unflattering makeup and the most unflattering expression – so much that we just wanted to look away, regardless of the clothes. They hurt our eyes.

Next up : Paris “pret a porter” Fashion Week March 4. Woot woot!
