Oscars 2014: The Average Red Carpet

Once again kitties, it’s the mother of all red carpets…The Oscars! Watching with an analytical eye, my eyesight is scanning for the crème de la crème in fashion and the generous load of Jedidiah Atkinson comments when an eyesore walks by.

The red carpet started early with a previous nominee, Viola Davis wearing a stunning green gown by Escada. I agree with Davis when she said, “The color green is my go-to color.” By the way, it is a simple and an elegant gown.

Pint sized talent, Kristin Chenoweth in Roberto Cavalli. Honestly, she looks the perfect match of the Oscar statuette if it was female and in human form. Good job!

Frozen star, Kristen Bell in Roberto Cavalli looks beautiful; however, I’ve seen this gown incarnated in previous red carpets. All I can say is that this is a safe gown.

12 Years a Slave and Oscar winner, Lupita Nyong’o has done it again. She is wearing a custom made Nairobi blue dress by Prada. Nyong’o is a trend setter and I can see this upcoming spring this shade of island blue worn by many fashion lovers. Her Prada gown is one of the best of the night.

Another safe and classic gown is worn by Oscar nominee, Amy Adams in Gucci. I do like that the dark blue makes an excellent contrast with her pale skin. She does stand out, but like Bell this gown is nothing new.

Oscar nominee for her supporting role in Blue Jasmine, Sally Hawkins is wearing Maison Valentino. I have two concerns regarding this gown. First, it looks heavy and lastly, I’m worried she’s going to lose her balance. It is an original dress with various and intricate details, yet it’s like a wrap of massive amounts of old doilies.

Pitch Perfect star, Anna Kendrick in J. Mendel is a perfect fit. Her dress has several details that work in her favor. Her waist is accentuated with a floral design which draws the eye in both directions. I liked this dress.

Naomi Watts is wearing Calvin Klein and the picture does not make justice on the several beadings her dress has. It does not appear, but it is a heavy dress.

Chrissy Teigen in Monique Lhuillier. Without a doubt, Lhuillier always brings fresh designs to fashion week and Teigen is the ideal girl to wear it. It looks great and it is an exciting dress.

Jessica Biel shines in this Chanel gown; however, the camera flashes has blurred out the actual design.

Bette Midler in Reem Acra. The singer/ actress shines in this two-toned dress. It is a fresh take on a night that demands for perfection and Midler breaks this rule in a precise matter. Brava!

Charlize Theron in Dior is channeling a modern day Maleficent. She looks seductive and at the same time ready for several camera shots.

Scandal’s star, Kerry Washington in Jason Wu. Washington knows how to look her best with this lavender gown.

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior. It is a vibrant red and it suits her well, but it lacks excitement. It’s similar to a mermaid shape gown without the exaggerated tail…again a safe gown. Ladies, you are really making this article hard for me because I’m yawning!

Well…Anne Hathaway in Gucci. I find this hard to explain, but this gown ruins her stunning body. In addition, the unnecessary embellishment on the top portion does not help at all. This is not a gown for an Oscar winner.

Kate Hudson in Versace…I think she took this dress from The American Hustle movie set.

Angelina Jolie in Ellie Saab hopped from the black dress with the shaky leg to this gown. I could say so many things, but I will keep it brief. Her dress reminds me of Christmas tinsel just poured on her.

Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen looks stunning and a mile away from the dress she wore at the Golden Globes. The draping hugs her body in great way along with the dark blue gown. Now, this is a home run!

The surprise of the night is Lady Gaga! She is wearing a Versace pale rose with mixed metals with creative lines that is impressive considering her usual over-the-top costumes. No Kermit, no gimmicks for Gaga. Although, I would remove the long scarf.

Uncharacteristic of me to say this…it’s Pharrell. Enough said.
