The Oscars took place last night and with the exception of a few highlights the show was a huge bore; In fact, I actually fell asleep in spite of my attempts to stay awake in order to see Adele perform what I now know is her Oscar winning song Skyfall.
Much will be written about how amazing Charlize Theron looked in Dior ( my best-dressed for the evening) or how Halle simply slayed in custom Versace- however, I wanted to show some love to the curvy girls who graced the red carpet last night.
If you have not figured it out by now, I’m a curvy girl who is constantly learning to embrace the figure God blessed me with- I applaud women in Hollywood who quite frankly are “average” sized but definitively find themselves in the plus- sized category based on Hollywood ‘s standards. Here’s my Oscar rundown:
Octavia Spencer remained loyal to Tadashi Shoji in a nude-peach chiffon gown by the designer. I was not a fan of her look at all and after the actress recently lost 20 pounds, I would have been happy to see her in something that highlighted her newly slimmed down figure; instead she wound up looking quite matronly in a dress that would have been perfect for the mother of the bride.
Let me start by saying I love this woman- she has pitch-perfect comedic timing and is currently starring in one of the top box office hits-Identity Theft. Unfortunately she entrusted her red carpet look to someone who simply has no clue how to dress a fuller figured woman. Everything about last nights look was wrong- from the ill-fitting gown to hair that reminded me of the old school cast of Dallas.
I only happened to catch a glimpse of Lah on the carpet but let me tell you, she always looks amazing- she was resplendent in Bagdley Mischka and everything from her elegant pony tail to her flawless make up was completely swoon-worthy.
Adele is my new girl crush and she was hands down my favorite on the red carpet last night- although I would have loved to have seen her in something other than her staple black she looked incredibly gorgeous in Jenny Packham. Part of the reason I loved her look is because she chose something that accentuated her assets and minimized any flaws.
