Salma Hayek - PERFECTION. Salma never, EVER disappoints. She knows how to dress for her petite frame and always knocks it out of the park. I love the gold headpiece in her hair, the gold neckline and beautiful black velvet with gold clutch. Grade: A+
Charlize Theron. WHAT A BEAUTY! The gown is perfection. The hair is AMAZING. Not many can pull off a pixie haircut like this. You have to have a beautiful face and amazing bone structure. Not much else to say when someone looks so absolutely gorgeous. Grade: A+
Jennifer Lawrence. PERFECTION. Loved this gown. It almost looks like a very, very light pink but I believe it's white. She pulled this off effortlessly. Beautiful hair, makeup and jewelery. You can't see it very well in the picture, but she wore a beautiful necklace that draped down her back. Gorgeous. Grade: A+
What can I say, there were a lot of winners last night.
Naomi Watts. I loved this gown. Beautiful color and I love the different neckline and bodice. Her hair was good, makeup beautiful, jewels were perfect. Grade: Yup! Another A+
Jessica Chastain. This was a beautiful gown. Just the right amount of color that went well with her skin and hair color. Another A for Jessica Chastain.
Jennifer Hudson. OK. First of all I do not like the Morticia hair. The dress is pretty enough but I feel like all it's missing are the fins at the bottom. She looked like a mermaid. Grade: C
Halle Berry. I've said it before, I'll say it again ... Halle NEVER gets it wrong. She looks beautiful. Love the gown, love the makeup, love the hair. Grade: A+
Kerry Washington. Loved the shade of this gown. It was a beautiful coral shade loved the beading on the bodice but I think she should have worn her hair up. Other than that I'll give her a solid B.
Anne Hathaway. I didn't like this dress. It looked like it didn't fit right and that diamond necklace was totally unnecessary. The color was a much too pale pink and blends right into her skin washing her out. Over all look is WAY too pale. Anne is one of those gals who is almost pretty but her features are too big. Big eyes, big nose, big mouth. Grade: D- A most unexciting look.
Amy Adams went with a very pale blue ball gown. I really loved this on her. She is a beautiful girl when she wears her makeup correctly. I'm going to give her an A+.
Catherine Zeta-Jones. CATHERINE! CHANGE YOUR FUCKEN HAIRSTYLE PLEASE ... JEEZ!! Get some bangs or something. Catherine always wears the same gown. Spaghetti straps and the same neckline. ALWAYS. And that scrolling gold overlay isn't working. You look like a Zeigfeld girl. Maybe if she wore her hair up or cut some bangs or SOMETHING she might have warranted a better grade but unfortunately for Catherine, this year I'm giving her a C-
Zoe Saldana. OK. I don't get the frou-frou at the top and then she has a belt and a bow and then black and grey chiffon at the hem ????? Me no likee. Grade: D- Also, her makeup and hair were not good. She looks way too thin in the face and had no color. More blush? More lip? I don't know but the makeup definitely needed something. She also needs to eat something.
Melissa McCarthy. She looked VERY pretty. Loved the color of this gown and the applique at the ends of the sleeves and at the shoulder. However, it did bug the crap outta me when Skeletor Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne kept going ON AND ON about how "you don't have to be a size 2 to look beautiful and gorgeous and blah blah blah." SHADDUP! Just say she looked beautiful and MOVE THE FUCK ON. Ugh. I'm giving Melissa an A. Makeup - beautiful; hair - beautiful. Overall look: beautiful.
Maria Menounos. I love this girl. I think she is so pretty and sexy. I loved this gown and I especially loved her hair. Very 1960's. And she has great boobs. Grade: B+
Brandi Glanville? Like WTF was she doing there? And that dress ... honey, why did you even bother covering up your boobs? You should have just gone topless and it would have looked the same. Or better yet, how about a couple of pasties? The Oscar Red Carpet is not a place for Brandi Glanville. Sorry. I like her but she is not Red Carpet material. Grade: F- (plus another minus for bad taste).
Jennnifer Garner and Ben Affleck. Cutest Couple. Grade: A+
Reese Witherspoon. Very chic and elegant. Loved the hair (side part) very Veronica Lake. Love the cobalt blue with the black trim. This is very reminiscent of the gown she wore a few years back. I'm going to give Reese an A.
Sandra Bullock. Beautiful. Clean. Simple. This is very similiar to the gown she wore when she won the academy award. The sort of scalloped pattern in black and silver. Very nice. Good hair, good makeup. Sandra gets an A.
Okay ladies and germs ... that's it for this season. Mama had a rough January with lots of sad news and it seems to just keep on coming. I did my best. Please feel free to leave comments and add those stars I forgot, etc., et al.
I wish you all a BEAUTIFUL 2013 WITH NO BAD NEWS AND NOTHING BUT HAPPINESS.
