Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears, it’s time to discuss my favourite night of the year!
As I’m sure you know, the 88th Academy Awards took place a week ago in Los Angeles, California and as per, the evening was truly spectacular. I am not joking when I say that I’ve rearranged plans with friends before in order to be home for the Oscars. I know, I know, it seems crazy to some, but I’ve always been a huge fan of arts & culture, especially visual media likes television and cinema, and seeing all of my favourite actors and actresses all glammed up and together for one incredible night of celebration, honour and fun is actually one of my favourite things in life.
The show itself was fantastic, in fact, I’d even venture to say that it was the best ceremony they’ve had in the last few years. I loved the pacing of the show this time around, and even though it went nearly an hour over what was scheduled (what else is new), I never felt bored; my brain was consistently stimulated and I was thoroughly entertained. I thought Chris Rock was an incredible host, with charm, wit and humour that was, shall I say, close to the knuckle — albeit fun, entertaining and light-hearted enough to edge him out of some tough spots. Plus, though I didn’t necessarily agree with all that came out his mouth, I think some of the more gripping “Hollywood leans on the racist side” thoughts truly needed to be vocalized.
Speaking of thoughts that simply need to be shared, did you see some of those red carpet looks, friend!? Talk about g-l-a-m! So, today, instead of getting engrossed in an hour of tense, tough and thought-provoking writing, I’m here to talk about the important, hard-hitting part of Oscar evening: the fashion! 😉 These are some of my picks for the most conversation-worthy outfits at the 88th Academy Awards! Whether you loved them or you hated them, I’m pretty sure they got you gabbin’ in some fashion or another (no pun, of course! ;))!!
Sunday’s red carpet had some real headturners – and I mean that in every which way. Some of these outfits are GREAT, some of these outfits are…umm, not, but all of them strike the same chord, they’re unexpected and unpredictable, and I can certainly appreciate the beauty in that!
Now we get into the real fun, the looks that were so darling, so lovely, so precious, I want to see them over, over and over again! Bring on the stunners!
Well, folks, there you have it, the looks that I, personally, had a little too much of and the looks that I couldn’t get enough of! There were some honourable mentions I left off of this list, like Charlotte Riley, Angela Bassett and Serena Armitage, because girl, I didn’t want this to be an essay! All in all, it was great night of fun, admiration and some truly gasp-worthy moments that I, personally, will be talking about for weeks to come. 🙂 Only 357 days until we do it all again! 😉 ♥
