School has its hands around my neck, this week, but I’m making time for everybody’s FAVORITE post of the year (note: claims can not be substantiated)! Instead of a general survey of the many outfits, though, I’m just going to share the ones I preferred. Why waste my valuable time on negatives, eh?
Seems to be common for prior winners to come back looking better than they did before. Of course, she’s also not pregnant, so that always helps :). I actually liked how almost-informal it is… save for that giant freaking necklace. Classy, all around, though.
Speaking of classy.. my. Sequins can either be lovely or cheap, and I think a big part of that is color choice. Here they’re understated, and the hang of the dress obviously compliments its wearer very well. I don’t love the shoes, but who notices the shoes :).
I adore this woman, and can’t help but smile whenever I see her. I promise, though, this isn’t just a “Babes Mark Likes” list. This really is my favorite dress from the 2012 show. I often describe things as “lovely” or “wonderful” but this dress is absolutely beautiful :). The shape, the style, the colors, and of course… that splendid gold etching. I think it’s an absolutely fantastic dress.. both for standing out and for complementing the actress.
Proof that this list isn’t just about those who turn me on ;). You can’t see it in this shot, but he actually wore tuxedo tails, and when he first came out I smiled. It was great to have him back, certainly, but to see a fella in this kinda tux was great. My favorite of the night :).
Special Mention – Kate Upton:
Alright, maybe this wasn’t an Oscar dress, but consider this our honorary award of the evening ;). They aired this commercial a number of times during the show, and I my attention was always pulled away from my work… though I can’t imagine why :).
