ACADEMY AWARDS 2009, Beauty Review

Reese Witherspoon's dress was a little asymmetrical and I've seen a variety of opinions about it. I like her better in a classic, tailored dress but I give her props for trying something different. I am not, however, doing cartwheels over her hairstyle. It looks a bit greasy and flat. I'm not sure what kind of coif would work with the dress. Maybe a low, messy bun or a side swept ponytail?

I thought Jennifer Aniston looked great. The gown was beautiful, her bag and shoes matched, her skin was glowing and as usual, her hair looked pretty. I'm not one hundred percent on board with the braid in her hair but all in all, I thought she pulled off a classic and elegant look.

You can't get more perfect than Natalie Portman. The length of the gown is ideal for the Red Carpet. Some of the trains on those dresses looked like a fall waiting to happen. I like the carpet grazing length. Natalie stood out in this pink number: makeup, hair and jewelry was kept simple. Everything about her look is fantastic.

At first I did not like this dress. I thought it was too "Disney princess". But then I thought about the other dresses and Sarah Jessica Parker's personal style and I revamped my opinion. We all kind of expect a couture look from SJP. So after consideration, I give her two thumbs up. I think Penelope Cruz could have worn this dress but not too many other girls could get away with it.

This is what I mean about a big train on a dress. It's not practical and probably not comfortable! I like the color and the cut of the upper portion although I want Marisa Tomei to gain a little weight, she's looking too thin. I think if the dress slightly billowed out then ended at the floor, I would be on board with the look. Nice makeup and jewelry though.

Gorgeous hair, makeup, love the red bag and the necklace. The dress is simple yet elegant and dreamy. Taraji P. Henson scored at the Golden Globes with her white gown and she does it again at the Oscars.

I'm really conflicted about the dress. My humble opinion on this one is that the dress, while intricate and detailed, is a little too old for Miley Cyrus. I love her hair, her makeup was done nicely and I do like the top of the gown along with the belt. But then it goes south for me. I would like to see a plain column skirt edged with the sequins and rhinestones rather than the elephant ears.

WOW. What a makeup job. I think Lisa Rinna wore a stunning dress, the color was rich and looked good with her skin. The halter neckline is so flattering. But her makeup...I'm not saying anything else. She's a sweet lady, I'm biting my tongue. Hard.

Seal looks great but I don't know how I feel about Heidi Klum's dress. Lets just say I'm not rushing out to buy a copy of the gown.
Didn't she wear a red gown last year? I like the shoes, I like the bracelets and the big earrings. I'm not wild about the red dress, neither the color or style. I am not head over heels in love with her hair either. I want to blow her hair out, throw some hot rollers in there and dress her up in a vintage gold dress.
At first glance, I didn't care for the dress. But as I watched Kate Winslet in this gown, I felt it was flattering to her body shape, the beautiful blue-gray brought out her eye color and it really had great movement to it. The dress is very different too, no one else wore anything like it. Her accessories were excellent, makeup well done. I'm still pondering her heavily shellacked hair, I think a nice bun with a few loose, curly tendrils would have been nice.
Jessica Beil- I wanted to yank that billowing piece of fabric down so it would lay flat. Had it not puffed out so much, I think I'd have liked the simplicity of the dress more. Her hair needs more volume or ooomph to it. I'm not sending love letters to Jessica over her choice of a dress. She has a fabulous body, she could have gone with a tight, form- fitting, plunging neckline of a gown.
Diane Lane is lovely. Gorgeous. The black dress is simple, elegant. Nice accessories, I can't find anything wrong here. Good job. And I dont think she's been botoxing herself to high heavens which I appreciate.

Is this a House of Dereon dress? Beyonce always surprises me with her beautiful voice and her actual physical beauty. She didn't have much makeup on but was still stunning. I'm not setting off fireworks for the dress though. It certainly shows off her hourglass figure but the pattern looks like a tapestry.

Dev looks nice in his tux. Freida Pinto, again, is one to watch. I'm happy she went with a bright blue dress, I love color especially for the younger actresses. With her dark hair and skin, the blue is flattering. I'd like to see the single sleeve- rather than long- be shortened to her shoulder. I would feel very unbalanced with a single sleeve. I have a feeling designers will be vying to dress this young beauty for many years to come!

Amy Adams is wearing quite the bejeweled necklace! I'm wondering if the art-deco lines of the dress clash with the complexity of the necklace? I don't have a real opinion here. Had the black stitching not been there, I think the necklace would have worked a little better. I think a simple, more linear necklace would have worked better. Love the hair and makeup, I'm wondering about a red lip to match the dress, could have worked!

I have no idea who these people are....?
Just kidding. What can you say? The dress is very classic, tailored to perfection. I really want to see Angelina Jolie with long bangs, swept to the side with long layers in her hair- a tousled look. Those emeralds are unbelievable. They almost look fake. I like it when she wears color but clearly she likes sticking to black and neutrals.

Anne Hathaway is one of the big fashion winners of the night. From head to toe, her look is perfection. I might have wanted to see a tiny bit of bling around her neck but what do I know?
