Movie Monday: Oscars

If you like movies, the Oscars are a big deal. Time to honor the best of the best - the actors, the writing, the directing, the music...

The red carpet dresses.

I actually don't always watch award shows. They get a little boring, and a little long. But, I do enjoy a red carpet - and the Oscars red carpet is the best. It's the culmination of the awards season, and the super bowl of red carpet-worthy dresses.


Of course, for every best-dressed, there are two worst-dressed. Sometimes, everyone agrees - like that time Bjork wore a swan, or Diane Keaton wore a tux. But other times, it's about personal taste. At the end of the day, it really is all about style, and how the actresses wear the dress.

I've always felt that style is more than just a pretty dress. It's finding the right dress for you; one that you can wear with confidence. A dress that doesn't wear you.

It's also about finding the right dress for the occasion. The Oscars? Not the place for risque, or the crazy. Save that for the Grammys.

Style is also about more than the dress. It's about the hair, the shoes, the jewelry, the hair...

....and making sure it all coordinates with the dress.

Stacy Keibler
So pretty - she looks like one of the statues!

Maya Rudolph
She's beautiful - I do wish her hair was up, especially with this dress.

Emma Stone
Her neck was attacked, and no one bothered to help.

Octavia Spencer
My first pick for best dressed - and she won Best Supporting Actress!

And my other pick for best dressed....
Sandra Bullock
