So we didn't lose to a machine, which is good. We don't have to hide our heads in shame. I'm still annoyed at not winning after my awesome start, though. I'm also trying to remember why we decided Visual Effects should be worth three points when all the other middle awards (Sound, Editing, Cinematography, etc) were two. Yes, there is an ulterior motive at play here because if Visual Effects had been worth two as well then Paul and I would have tied.
But enough of my bitterness and onto the most exciting part of this post: The Dress Report!
Ones I liked:
Simple. Elegant. And the colour really suits her.
It's so pretty.
Normally I hate dresses that are tight below the waist before flaring out, but I really like this. And she wears it so well.
I really want to hate this dress but I just can't. It looks so good on her.
This isn't the best picture, but it looked gorgeous when she was walking across the stage.
Elegant and flattering. I really like it.
It's not quite as amazing as I thought when I saw it on TV, but it's still a lovely dress.
Helena Bonham Carter
Queen Helena can be a bit hit and miss with her clothing choices, but I really like this one. It's elegant and pretty and Oscar-appropriate while still in-keeping with her style.
Lovely shape and I really like the pattern too.
Pretty, pretty dress and I am loving the dog handbag. I think more people should take dog handbags to the Oscars.
Ones I'm Not Sure About
It's not bad, but I think there's too much going on.
Very metallic. Not a great shape.
I don't hate it but I don't particularly like it either.
I'm not as opposed to this as I was when I first saw it, but I'm still not a fan.
Sometimes it looks ok, but other times it just looks a mess.
It's a nice dress. It's just more of a wedding dress.
I don't like dresses with sheer bits. It looks weird.
Ones I Didn't Like
I like the colour, but I hate the style. Those ruffle things on the back are just stupid.
It looks like a 90s power suit but in dress form.
The positioning of those seams is very unfortunate. And the back looks ridiculous.
There is nothing good about this dress. It's ugly, unflattering and completely ridiculous.
This nearly scraped into the Not Sure section, but I just... don't like it.
This may be the ugliest dress I've ever seen.
And finally we have my Not a Dress pick:
You go, Deboarah-Lee. If you want to wear a suit to the Oscars you wear a suit to the Oscars! Also that's a very nice accessory you have on your arm there
