Oscar 2011 gowns – best and worst

We interrupt our regular posting to bring you my two cents on the top 6 Red Carpet 2011 gowns that caught my attention this year.

Mandy Moore, elegant as ever in her crystal-encrusted gown. She’s beautiful and sings like a bird (love her song “I wanna be with you”). Definitely a lot more talented than some of her peers.

Um, yeah, we know Celine Dion recently became a mommy to twins but there’s no reason to look like a mummy now, is there?

Sandra Bullock seems to positively light up in this bright red number. Eat your heart out, Jesse!

Cate Blanchett wearing what looks like an empty photo frame to me. She seems to be missing a picture there, don’t you think?

Gwyneth Paltrow in a sleek and shiny gown with the smallest hint of an accessorized chain belt. Nice.

Hugh Jackman’s partner (whoever she is) clearly loves dusting and it shows. No offense but shouldn’t she have left those dusters at home? I mean, this is Oscar night, she should get a break!

In your opinion, who had the best or worst gowns?

    Great post. You hit the nail on the head with Cate Blanchett. I was completely floored when Tim Gunn told her how gorgeous she looked. Tim, c’mon. There is no way she can “make it work.”

    I don’t have cable so I didn’t get a chance to watch it but I did see pics on MSN. I actually thought Gwenyth Paltrow’s dress was a little too casual for the event. I definitely did not like Cate Blanchett’s but isn’t she famously the worst dress? By the way, that lady is Hugh Jackman’s wife of many years! She is a cougar…LOL. I agree with the Mandy Moore. She was stunning in that dress.

      I didn’t watch it but OMG, why would Tim say something like that??

      She’s a cougar, huh? Wonder if she’ll prowl my house and give it a good dusting? LOL

    OMG that didn’t even look like Mandy Moore, I loved Natalie Portman’s dress, and Anne Hathaway looked great all night. Hugh’s Partner? Oh no no no..he could do better…lol
