Oscars Luncheon Well-Played and Fug or Fab: Anne Hathaway and Naomi Watts


well-played

I have no idea what is happening in half these Oscar Luncheon photos, but the backgrounds of each of them is funnier than the last:

I’m not sure if I am as delighted by Naomi’s dress, though. It’s not BAD, but something about the hem makes me feel sad and alone.

What do you think?

In better news, LA HATHAWAY:

With the exception of the fact that the Academy is making photographers HIDE INSIDE THE STEP-AND-REPEAT — like, we KNOW this isn’t their first rodeo, so I seriously do not know what is happening here — this is pretty flawless. POINT TO YOU, ANNE. Point to you.

    I wish Naomi would have gone for some cheerful shoes, I feel they could have livened her (lovely but quite heavy) dress up.

      I love Naomi’s dress and shoes.
      Anne looks boooooooooooring. If she wins the Oscar it will be the biggest injustice since Gwyneth and her tears beat Cate Blanchett as Elizabeth.

    Well played, Anne. But perhaps a brooch or bracelet? Love your hair.

    Naomi’s dress is a Valentino, so why doesn’t it come with tailoring? It’s overpowering her. Isn’t she actually quite wee?

    Anne looks tremendous… and I believe she just put the bump rumors away for the time being.

    Naomi’s look is… meh.

      I was thinking the same thing. There is no room for a bump in that dress. She looks fantastic.

      Agreed. The first thing I looked at was Anne’s stomach. No bump.

      Wait. That sounds weird, but it wasn’t in a prurient way, honest!

    Naomi would be served well by a tailor and maybe an even hem? A better fit would probably make me disregard the hem though. Also, brighter shoes as someone else said.

    Anne looks fantastic. Maybe an accessory or two for pop, but the dress fits so well. And I see there is a little something going on in the back. I wish I could see it.

    I like Naomi’s dress, but I just like Naomi as an actress SO MUCH better, so there’s that. I am really over the bare leg look. I think some of the dreaded panty hose would be the thing I’d change/add. It sort of looks like Anne’s feet are sliding off the tip of her shoes.

    Concurring with above remarks on Watts’ look, just hem it, tailor it at the waist and hip, and change the shoes and she’d look great. The fabric and simple bodice are great.

    Hathaway is the picture of elegance here. Nailed it. I especially love this because it’s day-to-evening – she can just add some sparkly accessories and a beautiful coat if she wants to jazz it up for a night-time event. No one but the designer would even notice it’s the same dress.

    I feel like in every photo op with a lovely lady in a dress that happens to have pockets, said lady has her hands jammed into the aforementioned pockets. Dislike.

    Love Anne’s dress, but is there a sheer panel on the back of the skirt? is that a good idea?

    Oh! No! The base of the giant Oscar tricked me into thinking it was a flash of thigh glimpsed through a sheer horizontal panel.

    Why did Naomi borrow the outfit that Big Bird wears to funerals? They’re nothing like the same size.

    Can you please tell me again how to get rid of the “get the look” icons?? So distracting and I know there’s a way. Thanks.

      On the top-right corner of the picture, you’ll see an icon with two arrows (?) making a square, inside a circle. Click that, and turn ~LUMINATE~ off.

      :D

        OMG thank you so much. You are my favorite person today for telling me how to turn LUMINATE off. Thank you.

        SKS, you win my favorite person of the day too. I didn’t even know it could be turned off. Thanks so much!

    The length of Anne’s dress is my absolute favourite length. She looks smashing. Naomi is the better actress, but her dress is a bit shapeless.

    I really like Naomi Watts as an actress and she comes across as quite lovely and down to earth in interviews, which is oh-so-important in my celebrities, but I think she’s second only to Misha Barton in her fashion tone-deafness. Regarding some (well, most) of her choices, I really wonder what she’s sees when she looks in the mirror because, they clothing choices, “fug” to me. So much money and help at your beck and call and yet, and yet…

    Naomi’s hair and shoes are a little to matchy matchy for me. ….

    Another site had a shot of Anne from the side and her shoes were SO pretty…foot jewelry almost…usually I look at young women in ski high heels and shudder for their knees, ankles and lower backs…this time the sheer aesthetics of the shoe overcame the grumpy granma…

    Well, at least Naomi’s face and hair are stunning.

    Anne needs to gain a few pounds back. I know she thinks she looks like Audrey Hepburn with the hair (and style) but she does not. Her hair is cute, but she looks gorgeous with longer hair (and a normal non-Fantine weight).

    Really GFY? I think Naomi looks better than Anne here.

    Anne’s is a little too boring for me. and whatever is happening with the possible sheerness is weird. Maybe if she did some fun jewels or accessories. I feel like she is auditioning to play Aubrey Hepburn in a movie in this. (just add pearls)

    Definitely seems to quell bump rumors, which makes the SAG dress completely inexcusable~!

    Anne looks boring. She is wearing a black dress. A plain black dress, with no details. Simple and elegant, yes, but boring. Oscar nominee? Yawn.

    Naomi- Limp, lifeless black lace overlay with hint of nude lining, paired with Mei-maw’s shoes. The sartorial equivalent of a yawn.
