Oscars WTF Carpet: Kat Graham

In the interest of starting on a note of kindness and positivity, I think she looks so striking from the clavicle up. She can really carry off that No Makeup Makeup, which is nearly impossible. HOWEVS:

These kinds of dresses — no, I can’t believe this isn’t the first one I’ve seen, either, but it’s not –always just look to me as if someone is giving saucy rabbit ears to a woman’s torso. It doesn’t seem particularly flattering? I mean, don’t get me wrong: I like a deep vee. But something about this just looks like someone snuck a wedge of dress pie from the sartorial dessert that was cooling off in the fridge. And, great.  Now I want dessert.

Oscars Fugs and Fabs: Greens, Blues, and Purples

Not enough of any of these — never enough! — but still a nice showing.

Oscars Fugs and Fabs: Wearing White

As ever, if it seemed like we missed a big star — like Beyonce — she more than likely got her very own post. Let’s eyeball the rest of these ladies, though.


Oscars Fug/Fab Face-Off: Amy Adams vs Sofia Vergara


Another pairing you wouldn’t think would be going head-to-head. It’s a very MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch kind of day on GFY.

Oscars Fug Carpet: Marisa Tomei in Azzaro Couture

Okay. I could not pretend to put this up to a vote. But the truth of the matter is that, as wacky as this is, she looks REALLY GOOD in it:


And don’t get me wrong. It IS wacky. It’s like a chef’s apron had a baby with harem pants and she decided to pop a feather boa on it. But she still somehow looks like a very cool girl at a New York cocktail party, the one who you assume with be super super mean to you, but who actually is totally happy to stand in the corner and eat all the cheese puffs with you, while narrating who at the party is the biggest jerk, and what she thinks is going to happen next season on Downton, the friend who you introduce to your other friends by saying, “this is my friend Marisa. She wears crazy pants, but she’s actually really nice!”

Oscars Fug/Fab Face-Off: Natalie Portman vs. Beyonce

Because I love an unexpected face-off, and you don’t usually think Beyonce and Natalie Portman will have much overlap in ANYTHING. I mean, even Benjamin Millepied (whom LaineyGossip always calls “Ballet K-Fed” and that’s always how I refer to him in my head) is basically the opposite of Jay Z.

Let’s start with Miss Portman and her Dior:

This is somehow both super boring and EXTREMELY elegant. Natalie looks nine feet tall, and fully grown-up, but not in a stuffy way. The bunching sleeves are a little distracting to me, but the earrings are a fab choice, and where normally I might whine about her needing a darker lip, the smoky eye and gentler lip actually don’t bother me. Overall, she looks like the walking embodiment of whatever perfume your mother wore that you always associate with her — mine wore, and wears, Chanel No. 5 — and the feeling you get when you remember being a kid and inhaling that scent that you could only ever describe as Time To Hit The Town. I can’t explain it any better than that. I came into writing this post thinking I was more on the “dull” side but I think I just talked — and sense-memory’d — myself into liking it a lot.

Next up: Beyonce.
