The Oscar Pandemic has begun. Symptoms: Oscar Fever, associated with downloading every movie on the list and Googling all the nominated stars; Sore Feelings, from not having one’s favorite (fill in the blank) nominated. Secondary Symptoms: Nervous Tic and Bitten Fingernails, from speculation of the Who-Will-Wear-What on the Red Carpet. Leading to: Weight Gain, caused by trying out Oscar party food in preparation for one’s own Oscar Fete. Diagnose: First, apply daily dose of Dom Perignon to calm frazzled nerves. Second, watch this Blog to see the possibilities for Star Fashion Prospects. Prognosis: Like a pregnancy it will all be over in a few hours on Sunday March 7th, 2010. Oscars: The biggest movie event of the year.
But let’s have a little fun with the Stars, the Gowns and the Designers (just like guessing the gender of the baby, which nobody does anymore) and predict who just might qualify for an Oscar for the Best-Dressed List.
And the Nominees Are:
Sandra Bullock – Tall, willowy, spunky, willing to laugh at herself but non-the-less her star is on the rise and so should her choice of gown. Nominated for Best Actress in the Blind Side, which is also nominated for Best Picture, this is her year to go all out. In the past her choices have not necessarily emphasized her best features, washed her out or were too casual. With provocative almond eyes and genuine flashy smile, she stunned at the Golden Globes and we expect something even better for Oscar. Like this Armani Prive from the Couture Shows in Paris. The unfathomable, inky blue is perfect to give dimension to her already sultry tones. This gown will give her that Va-va-voom radiance.
Penelope Cruz – With perhaps the most captivating eyes, her Latin beauty and incredible talent have carried her right to the top of Hollywood. Nominated as Best Supporting Actress in Nine she sends a wildly provocative message in her role. We love her Red Carpet choices and voted her best dressed of the Globes. For the Oscars she needs a million dollar look that continues to bring out the Golden Ages of Hollywood Glamour. Even though she went with black at the Globes my suggestion for Oscar is Christian Dior Couture. John Galliano is a master at costume and this gown would put her at the top of the List.
