So I just got off the Oscars website. I’m very excited about the nominees this year!! We’ve had a great year in film! It’s so refreshing! It seems like we went through a drought there for a while but are now back to blooming fields of cinematic imagery! In case you haven’t seen the complete list of nominees you can check it out HERE. Now we all know that the Academy Awards are to honor those who excel in the field of acting/entertaining/come what may…however, I would argue that the awards are just as much about the Red Carpet and gowns. I can’t tell you how excited I am about who will be wearing what this year. Let me tell you why. Look at the nominees for Actress in a Leading Role: Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Angelina Jolie…and a woman I’ve never heard of Melissa Leo. With names like that how can you NOT have a great night of fashion!!??!! As far as Actress in a Supporting Role I am SO looking forward to seeing what Amy Adams and Penelope Cruz will be wearing! I know that there is a lot of criticism about how stars are in their own world and why in the world should we as the public care what they are wearing…”Shouldn’t they do more for the world than wear some dumb dress?!”…I’ve heard it all before. I understand where these people are coming from but I want you to look at it from a different perspective for a minute. With the downturn in the economy it seems like all we see is gloom. For me seeing these women in all their glory and fabulousness it gives me an escape from reality…even if it’s only for a few hours on a Sunday night. It’s like on a rainy day when just for a moment the sun breaks through and you feel the warmth on your face. So I saw bring on the Oscar, bring on the stars and bring on the FASHION!!!! Remember…BE FABULOUS!
