The Oscars Delivered…Pizza

Actress Mindy Kaling was asked last night at the Vanity Fair party what type of man she is attracted to. Her response, “Good looking!” That’s all I wanted from this year’s Oscar couture.

Standouts were Lupita Nyong’o in her Kenyan blue Prada creation. Best Actress winner, Cate Blanchett, as always was edgy and elegant in her cascading jeweled Armani. The only Blanchett flaw was when she addressed Sandra Bullock in her acceptance speech and said, “I could watch your performance til the end of time and it sort of felt that I had.” Gravity made that comment crash to earth.

More fashion notes…I fell for Jennifer Lawrence’s red Dior gown, but no more draped necklaces down the back…been there, done that. I must give a shout out to John Legend’s wife, model Chrissy Teigen. She looked fab and fresh in a strapless Monique Lhuillier floral gown.

My vote for Best Dressed Demographic goes to the 40 plus stars who shined brightly. Bette Midler, Meryl Streep, Sally Field, Goldie Hawn and Sandra Bullock, you were THE glam squad.

Jared Leto

Amy Adams looked lovely, but she hide her best asset…her hair. Put it down, Amy. While we are on the subject of hair, please put the side pony out to pasture. And Bradley Cooper, you are so adorable, but get a new stylist. Your hair needs a makeover. You were sitting by Jared Leto who wins Best Tressed of the evening…get his hairdresser’s number.

Julia Roberts, kudos for going very blonde. Yet again, you are a Pretty Woman, but the dress was too old for you and ladies, the peplum needs to go away. It just ain’t hip.

The other side of the coin, Angelina Jolie looked like she was waiting for her age to catch up with her dress. The arbiter of who should be arrested by the Fashion Police, host Guiliana Rancic, looked like an aging Olympic ice skater. Seriously, she sits in judgment of others? And let us not forget the violet haired Kelly Osbourne who must have borrowed her mother, Sharon’s, dress. Joan Rivers’ face must have fallen seeing her co-hosts looking like 10 miles of bad road.

White tuxedo’s made a big splash…Jared Leto looked fab…loved the burgundy bow tie. Ryan Seacrest looked like an American Idol, Matthew McConaughey looked sharp, but the vest was overkill and to round out the white menswear trend, Ellen looked spiffy in her white tux.

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron is in a class by herself. She is unbelievably gorgeous. I did not care for her dress and what’s with the invisi-straps, but her body is rockin’. I can even let her gaffe pass when she missed her cue to introduce the nominees and started laughing at her mistake…grounds for a dumb blonde joke? We can forgive her everything, except maybe for dating Sean Penn, but she will learn the hard way.

Sorry that Pharrell did not win…that made me un-Happy. Why did Bono receive a standing ovation for being off key and not hitting the high notes? Was John Travolta’s toupee too tight, calling Idina Menzel, Adele Nazeem…is that a Scientology twist to convert a nice Jewish girl into an Arab singer? BTW, tightest moment of the night was a tie between Travolta’s toupee and Kim Novak’s face.

Ellen struck a chord and kept the party light and rolling along…the pizza was a brilliant touch and motivated me to order delivery. And, it’s a wrap.
