Oh I do love a red carpet.  It’s where the fabulous meets the notorious with some star power razzle dazzle in the mix.  Fashion shows are about the clothes, red carpets are more about the horse wearing them.

This year’s Academy Awards was a little disappointing – with nothing really blowing me away.  The ladies definitely brought the colour this year, with no real standout theme.  I suppose white was the most popular, but it’s difficult to “pick a winner” when the looks range from girly-flutter through to hard edged couture.

The best dressed women are the ones most comfortable in their skin.  Who dress for their shape and know this is them.  I find little attractive about the ones trussed up to project something they are truly not.  Young things dressing too old (bless them).  Old things dressing young (thanks for the laughs!).

This Oscars was the wrong person in the wrong dress.  I think they should have a swap meet and ‘do-over”.
