Oscar dresses 2018!
I can't believe it's already a year since the last Oscars, time is flying. These posts seem to be becoming an annual thing, so here are some more of my family and my inane comments on the Oscar fashions. (So the code is C: Me, Catherine. M: My mum - because she's also Catherine so it'd get confusing. R: Rosie, my sister, and D: my Dad, who I think chips in once.)
C: Ooh pink! Looks like the kind of dress you'd get on a cheap Barbie though.
M: Er...no I don't like it much. Too neon. And she didn't look comfortable walking in it.
C: Aw she always looks amazing.
M: Oh she looks amazing, she always looks so gorgeous.
C: I like that she wore her glasses.
R: What? Oh, gorg. I like the slit at the bottom of it.
M: Look how it moves, that dress, it's like liquid.
(Safe to say I think we all have a bit of a girl crush. But the dress did look more knock-out when you saw it on the show as opposed to in the still image.)
C: Oh I like that. I really like that, I like the sleeves.
M: Yes it's quite medieval isn't it?
C: Oh, it's the Jane the Virgin girl!
M: I like it, but I don't like the plunging neckline.
R: I think it's got sheer across there?
M: No, I don't think it does.
C: I would have liked to see her in a brighter colour, but I really like it.
M: I like how full the skirt is.
Kelly Marie Tran
M: Again, the plunging neckline.
C: I think it works better on her because she's more...you know.
M: Yes, and it doesn't go right down to the waistband.
R: (On coming in to see the back view of the dress) I like that!
C: It is lovely from the back actually, I love the colour.
R: (On seeing the front) Not sure about the...(she indicates) but I love the flow of it.
C: I like how she's got her hair.
Ashley Judd, Anabelle Sciorra and Salma Hayek
M: It's all very much single block colours tonight.
C: I like Salma Hayek's - but it's a little bit like fancy dress.
R: I like it...I think?
D: It looks like it's wrapped up in polythene.
C: The one in the middle is dressed a bit casual for the Oscars.
C: Oh I like...wait is that a bustle? Rosie, dress?
R: Yeah nice. Oh, bustle. No. It looks like... a beetle.
(I can see now it's more like a bow. But it did look like a bustle!)
Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster
R: Is Jennifer Lawrence tall, or is Jodie Foster short?
M: That's what I must always look like standing next to people.
C: I think it's a bit of both, and Jodie Foster's got no heels on because she's injured. Dress?
R: Yeah, I like it.
C: She looks like an Oscar, Oscar themed. I like her hair.
C: She always goes for a similar thing doesn't she? And the very straight hair.
R: No, no I don't like that.
C: He's looking a bit rough.
R: It looks like they've got a homeless man in off the street, put him in a suit and given him a shave.
C: Yeah, just a bit.
C: I actually quite like that for some reason. Quite princess-y.
R: Yes, I like the (french accent) Chiffon!
M: Oh I really like that pink one, Saiorse Ronan's wearing. That's lovely.
C: Yeah it's a pretty colour on her.
M: What's that yellow one I keep seeing? I like that one, there, behind.
C: Is that Greta Gerwig? I think, she's the Ladybird screenwriter. I like that too, bit different.
C: She seems to be wearing...a blazer. Do you think she was just feeling casual?
R: Nice colour on her though.
C: Yeah, she looks pretty.
M: Meryl Streep's is very like Allison Janey's.
C: But not as nice. Bit more basic. Her glasses look cute though.
Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren
C: They both look good. How old is Jane Fonda?
M: About 80?
C: She's had a lot of work done. But she looks good. I like her dress best. Helen Mirren is gorgeous though. And she's not... has she had work done?
R: Probably, but if she has it's good work.
Margot Robbie (and her Mum)
M: Oh, she's got her hair like you, Rose.
C: Her mum is gorgeous.
M: God, her mum's young isn't she? But then, she's not very old either I suppose. And I thought she looked nice in white, being a blonde.
C: Here mum's dress is nice too, bit quirky.
M: Oh yes, she wore the same dress from her first time at the Oscars, for West Side Story. The top's different though isn't it? Because it's not strapless there.
C: You're right, looks good both ways.
M: It looks better in the original picture though doesn't it, the gold.
C: Yeah I suppose it's a bit faded. She still pulls it off though.
