Top 3 Oscar Dresses: The Review

What did @HayleyThrills think were the Best Dresses at the #Oscars? Also what has @BarkerPODcasts got to say?




The Oscars have always been a fashion frenzy and this year the Hollywood elite hit the ball out of park with those elegant and sexy dresses. Some people got it so amazingly right and then there were those that didn't really hit the target, I am not one to give a shout out to the worst dressed because it’s mean and to be honest no one got it painfully wrong this year (well in my eyes at least they didn't.)

I, @HayleyThrills , have watched the news footage, flipped through the newspapers and trawled the internet to have a look at all the dresses from this year’s Oscars and have chosen my top three. I am going to review these beauties and Adam @BarkerPODcasts will give his “man opinion” on them also. So Here we go....

1.       1. Amy Adams “Julie and Julia” star in Oscar de la Renta:



@HayleyThrills:
A still image of this beautiful gown does not do it any justice; it has an elegant and liquid way of moving it’s like a grey oceans wave. The colour is so understated and muted that it suits Amy’s pale and mysterious complexion perfectly. I really love the ruffles and the cut of the bias is so elegant. This really is a “princess for the day” dress. The only thing I would say is with it being so neutral Amy could have accessorised with a bit of a colour hit and also her neck looks a little too bare for my licking but saying that I am a jewellery fiend.

@BarkerPODcasts:
Amy Adam's is a natural looking and pretty dam fit in this dress. I couldn't believe it when I looked up her age ( she's 38! ) as I always thought she was younger. Anyway, The dress, well It's a nice light grey sort of colour, kind of like she washed it with a black sock and it ran. The Long ruffles remind me of a rug my nan use to have back in the 90's, that my Nan's little Yorkshire terrier use to try and hump on a daily basis. I also think she should bring out more Ginger. embrace those ginger genes of her and as for Accessories maybe a nice necklace, possibly found in ancient ruins, or a terrier dog humping her rug dress......just for my nostalgia.


2.       2. Naomi Watts star of "The Impossible" in Armani Prive:



@HayleyThrills
I do love this dress, it’s so cool! While most of the gowns on the night were elegant and chic this dress is unique and daring, while still remaining glamorous. Glitter, sequins and all things sparkly have proven popular this year and to me she looks statuesque, almost as if she was a life-sized trophy. I also like the way the dress looks sculpted to Naomi’s body, it’s a very sexy dress without being too much, or flashing everything!

@BarkerPODcasts:
WOW! This Dress reminded me of the body armour suit Whitney Houston wore in "The Bodyguard"! All that's missing is some kind of futuristic head gear.The Whole glittery effect gives off an effect that she's a mermaid, which is kind of sexy I suppose. Although I hate that whole mermaids are sexy thing because their bottom half is fish, which is just weird! as for her hair, its an easy choice, just put it up and carry on. Also, don't you think all Australian women get better looking the older they get? Nicole Kidman? Dannii Minogue?.....Just saying.

3.       3. Sally Field Legendary Actress and "Lincoln" co star in Valentino Haute Couture:



@HayleyThrills
This is a stunning stand out dress. Sally has got it right and not like many older women dressed too young. I like the fact it has sleeves they cover a multitude of sins and yet they don’t look out of place with this fabulous gown. Again a fuller, ruffled skirt has my heart-a-flutter! There’s a clever little twist of material at the centre of the waist which draws your eyes in giving the illusions of a smaller waist (which is something Sally need not worry about.) I like the train, didn’t drag like some but almost snaked behind her, and it’s nice to see a train that’s not on a wedding dress.


@BarkerPODcasts:
I must say Sally Field looks great for her age and really elegant. She reminds me of one of those Toilet Roll disguisers my Nan use to have. You know the ones! Those ladies is flowy dresses that you put over Loo Rolls so people didn't see you were buying Tesco loo roll and not Andrex. Loving the Red dress, very daring, Alot like the Dress Winona Ryder wore in the Wedding Scene in "Beetlejuice" and she pulls it off. Must be harder for Older ladies to dress elegantly and their age without looking frumpy and....well....Old.

Ok, what do you think? were both views valid? Did Adam just talk bollocks? Let us know.
