    Oscar Fashion 2013

    I’ve blogged about red carpet fashion a number of times. I thought about taking a year off.  Then I started watching the coverage and fell in love with so many styles. I just had to share.

    There was a lot of beautiful shades of blue this year–a nice switch from red and of course black.


    Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Hudson were two of my favorites and also grabbed my attention for their hairstyles. LOVE!

    And while they may not make fashion history, I must recognize Robin Roberts who looked stunning covering the red carpet especially after her health struggles.

    Youngest nominee at nine is Quvenzhane Wallis.  Adorable!

    Helen Hunt’s dress was designed by H & M! I love that she wore a necklace because you often see the earring statement now. I like a little bling around the neck.

    BEST BRIGHTS: Kerry Washington and Olivia Munn

    And BEST COUPLE: Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck

    Elegant in Neutrals:

    Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain. Normally I prefer color on a pale complexion, but I thought both of these women looked incredible. Again, the hairstyles were perfection!

    Octavia Spencer looked wonderful last year when she won for The Help and I admired her in my “not a size 2 category”.  This is an extremely flattering style for her and I think she looks fabulous again.

     UNIQUE DESIGNS: Zoe Saldana and Naomi Watts



    I have a great deal of admiration for each one of these talented and beautiful women.  I just didn’t care for their style choices this time.

    What did you think? Did you have a favorite I missed?

    What’s in My Makeup Bag?

    Recently when I asked for feedback on topics for posts several readers mentioned makeup. First and foremost I am not  an expert on makeup. I get more compliments on my hair than my makeup. That tells me I have a long way to go. However, I have learned a great…
