Oscars '11 fashion. Are you f * # king kidding me??

  I was so excited to finally see how all the celebrity chickas dressed up this year for the biggest awards ceremony. I mean, Academy Awards fashion is always stunning in one way or another. It's amazing to see how movie stars, or just... stars goes all out to make sure that all the press the other morning has huge print of them in all their prime sparkling and shining in the most gorgeous outfits. So i was unable to watch the red carpet cause i reeealy needed to get some sleep for today, so as soon as i gotten home from college i checked all the outfits on VOGUE website. They have them all in HD and even with magnyfing glass option which works sooo good you can actually see EVERY tiny detail or even prominent thread. Click here to be redirected but come back to me so we can discuss the dresses. Unfortuantly i couldn't be more dissapointed in this year fashion choices of the starlets... What the hell happened? Is it just me or all the dresses really looked like ripped off curtains??

I had VERY high hopes in Natalie Portaman's dress, i mean, she was most likely to win one of the biggest Oscar nomination this year, and she knew it... I know, she is very pregnant now and everything, which makes it harder to get a stunning dress... But what she chose... was just BLAH.... and her earrings... She literally looked like she belongs on my window, protecting me from ''rapists snatchin yo people up''... Ok, the dress is Rodarte, it's fairly beautiful, and really looks good on her pregnant figure, but i was expecting a little bit more...  The dress she wore on this years Golden Globe's was way more impressive than this.
Overall score: Not bad, but could've done better.
But actually the more i look at this dress the more i like it... So... i don't know...

 Last year Oscar winner Sandra Bullock tried to pull off old Hollywood in Vera Wang
Let's compare THIS to how woman, who knew she is most likely to win an Oscar last year presented herself:
Is there a rule like, you can't look equally good two years in a row? Sandra looked ah-mazing last year in Marchesa! The lacy top of the dress and gorgeous figure hugging and  shimmery bottom. Everything perfect from her hair to the little clutch. This years red dress looks uncomfortable, doesn't go with her pale skin... i could go on for a while actually....Overall score: Bad.

Mila Kunis was one of my favourites this year. Her dress is really cute, looks good on her, and even though its material also resembles old curtain at close range, she was one of the best dressed in my opinion this year.

Rees Whiterspoon like Perez pointed out looks ''spiting image of one of the 1st Barbie dolls''. And really!
 She does resemble it! Anyways the dress is beautiful (Giorgio Armani Priv√©), simple, classy, nothing to add there. Overall score: Good!

Amy Adams. When her star shoot up, i thought she has a good fashion sense.. but she keeps disapointing me. Ok, her dress this year was kinda cute... all sparkley and stuff...(L'Wren Scott) and the Cartier diamonds rumored to be worth almost 1,500 000 $... But they REALLY DO NOT go with the dress! Neither colour, neither model...
Overall score: loose the diamonds, or get a V neck dress if you want to show off expensive ass jewellery...

Anne Hathaway. Now, HER dress tone was picked out perfectly, she always can pull off the pale skin and bright red .... (lip, dress etc...) She looked allright. Valentino rocks my socks, but I don't like the model of this particular dress too much. Though i have to admit that she actually looks good. Overall score: Good, but could've loooked younger in something more... flowy, but i guess it's just her style.

Nicole Kidman. I have ONE word for you. CURTAIN... But officially Dior Haute Couture...
Overall Score: Dress doesn't look good on her... And actually i don't think it would look good on anyone else. Bad.

Hilarry Swank's feathery dress immediatly reminded me of Zoe Saldana's last year oscar gown, no idea why, they are not much alike, maybe it's just the bottoms of the dresses look somewhat simmilar... Anyway... Not bad. But she gets lost in the colour. Hilary Swank looks gorgeous in lilac tones, why this greyish feathery mess??
 Overall score: NEXT!

Jennifer Lawrence. Simple and beutiful. I think i would go for that look myself. It's of course risk free look, but cause i would be afraid of critics like myself bashing the hell out of me even though they don't know a damn thing about fashion.... yeah... i'd also keep it simple. But you CAN'T say that she looks bad in this simple California girl style! Calvin Klein FTW!
You know, i feel that Amy Adam's jewellery would go better here then on her dress.
Over all score: may have added something to kick it up a notch... But good.

Scarlett Johansson... Another lacy curtain., But i actually liked it. No idea why. I guess the color looks good, the dress is falttering for her figure, but it's still a little bit funky somehow...
Overall score: Interestingly... gorgeous....

Jennifer Hudson. This is the example of well chosen colour, style, model and everything else...
Overall Score: erm... good... but erm... it has only one imperfection... Her boobs look a little bit too... squished... wheee...

Other starlets which kinda failed to impress me, or i didn't have anything to say about their dresses. Good or bad:
Gwyneth Paltrow in Calvin Klein
Cate Blanchet in Givenchy Haute Couture 
 Michelle Williams. Chanel.
Penelope Cruz <3
 in L'wrence Scott
Halle Berry in Marchesa.

So this is just my opinion about the Oscar fashion, if you don't agree with it or agree and want to share your opinion please do so in the comment section below :)


  1. I personally loved Halle Berry, but my fav was Camila Alves...but she's just such a gorgeous lady she could wear a potato sack.

  2. Yes! Camila Alves dress was stunning! But she was just a date to M.McConaghey, not a nominee or anything... But i agree, she was one of the best dressed :)

  3. halle berry gorgeous
    and yes maybe the economy has effected the other women lOL

  4. Well, it's a possibility lol... But let's say last year's economy was worse, but the dresses were more beautiful. I say it's crisis of imagination and caring to look decent and not crisis of the economy anymore :)

Best and Worst drugstore foundations. Maybelline vs. L'oreal.

I've been using drugstore foundations forever, cause i can't really afford high-end stuff. I'm a grad-student, and  i allready spend all my money on cosmetics. I live in Europe, so stuff like MAC or Lush is non-existant here. Well at least not in my country. (Let's make the "Aaaaaaw..." sound now all together). Let's not make it sound like the edge of the world though, we have kinda everything else here... most of the popular drugstore brands, most of the high end brands... Most of the popular clothing stores....except the Forever 21... (1...2....3... awwwww)
Anyway since i've used almost every drugstore foundation there is i'd liked to share my opinion of which i thought is best and which is.... well let's call it "not-so-much"....

So i'd like to give the name of Best Drugstore foundation to Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid.
It's cheaper than the foundation that i'd like to call "not-so-much", but it works wo…

The truth behind cheapness of Coastal Scents. Fake MAC.

Since it's April Fool's day what can we found better to talk about but fools? :D
And what if we combine it with our favorite subject - beauty?

One of the reasons why i actually wanted to write about this is because since i do aloooot of research online i found some interesting theories about some famous brands. Well brand to be exact - Coastal Scents. Almost everyone interested in make-up knows this brand and owns their 88 palette. I do to. I bought it from their website directly a while ago. Everything is great. I like the quality, the palette is really well pigmented, it was cheap, i got amazingly kind costumer service (they answered tons of my e-mails very fast)
The question is - why i only had to pay 18 dollars for the whole pallette, when alot of people compare their shadows to MAC brand, which costs 14 dollars per unit. And here i got even 88 different colours. The thing is... everything from Coastal Scents are made in Hong Kong or somewhere near by. It's not being ma…

Louboutin Manicure. Classy or Trashy?

The thing that probably every girl has in her wishlist - a pair of Louboutin high heels with the magic red sole...
I was lying if i'd say i don't want 'em...
Ok, by show of hands who doesn't? 
Ok, either you are shy, or  i was right.
Louboutin's screams "girl power, sexyness, style, class"
...and that you are rich enough to purchase them.
Or you have a rich man beside you...

Anywaaaay, for those of us, who are not su lucky and don't have the possibility to buy them, can try interesting Louboutin manicure. It's simple yet so sophisitcated.
All you have to do is paint your nails in rich black color and paint your undersides ruby red. 
Photo courtesy I did my nails once like this in summer, and got lots of compliments. Thats another thing every girl craves.... So this may be not so perfect for everyday wear, but perfect for a classy night out.  Are you willing to try it until you get your shoes? :)
