Oscar Red Carpet Fashion- The Most Matronly… it’s sort of like the worst
I’m sorry but I have a habit of trying to not point a finger on who looks awful, because everyone has a bad day.
Except, there are too many old lady frocks on the Oscar red carpet tonight, that I think it all needs to be discussed. Just look at Bérénice Bejo, she forgot about French chic and went for a mint julep instead.
Those following the @focusonstyle tweets tonight know that I thought Kristen Wigg was Emily Blunt and my son thought Cameron Diaz was Joan Rivers.You know that it’s universal about Rooney Mara looking hands down fantastic in Givenchy.
There ae so many actors playing safe or what they perceive as “Oscar rules,” that they lost all sense of style; it’s almost as
good bad as back in the day before stylists.
I have a script in my head that it’s a wedding circa 1977. Maybe in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn or at Leonard’s of Great Neck, but wherever it is, the guests are putting on their best local glam. I’ve decided to cast the actors based on these red carpet looks.
Bingbing Li is the bride.
Lea Thompson is the neighbor.
Giuliana Rancic brought the canonli.
Virginia Madsen is the matron of honor.
Wendi McLendon-Covey wasn’t sure if she was a bridesmaid or a local pageant queen.
Kelly Osbourne is the great aunt visiting from across the pond.
Sandra Bullock had the dress from before she went on a diet and hoped no one would notice that it was too big.
Melissa McCarthy is the long lost cousin who you are always so happy to see so you can finally laugh with someone.
And finally, Jennifer Lopez as the wedding singer who is trying to look like Jennifer Lopez.
