I have read a couple of articles written about 2010 Oscar Fashion, describing the gowns as boring and safe… but hey…if boring and safe produces such lovely frocks as these year…there is really nothing wrong with being boring and safe and yet looking gorgeous is there? ;Here are my thoughts on the gowns worn for the 2010 Oscars.
Personally I found this year’s Oscar fashions really lovely except for a couple…the most incredulous choice was from Charlize Theron!
Charlize Theron wore a dusky pink strapless Christian Dior gown with Harry Winston jewellery. I love the gorgeous colour, but the idea of blooming flowers strategically position on breasts is not the best way to create the illusion that one has bigger boobs than those born with! Charlize went for red lips and a glam updo for her red carpet appearance.
Contrast her dress with Rosario Dawson’s gown at the Vanity Fair after-party…
Rosario Dawson’s gown was kept simple with a Grecian inspired design while letting the gorgeous colour speak for itself.
I know there was a lot of love for Kate Winslet’s silver strapless gown but to me, she looked shapeless…

The Best Actress for 2010 fared better in her choice of a silver gown…perhaps it was the floral appliqué bodice or the way the flowy fabric clung in all the right places…Sandra Bullock was reminiscent of starlets back in old Hollywood!

Two gorgeous sparkly gowns by Armani Prive…although similar material was used but two distinct different looks were created because of the different designs…
Jennifer Lopez had the ultimate wow factor in her structured gown. It was modern and definitely red carpet worthy. She looked every inch a Hollywood starlet.
Amanda Sefried instead looked all bridal and princess in her strapless ball gown made with similar material as Jennifer Lopez’s gown. It’s a grown up sex babe versus sweet princess look.
My all time favourite gown for 2010 Oscars is this pale blush tone Elie Saab dress.

Look at the gorgeous delicate folds on the gown that creates a sweet and romantic look. The trailing train, lace and pale blush shade adds to the damsel in distress look…

Rounding up my post with my admiration for these ladies who have aged gracefully…looking age appropriate in their dressing and yet classy and gorgeous! Quite befitting of these grand dames…
Meryl Streep always chooses simple clean-cut designs in soft flowy material that accentuates her best features.

Sigourney Weaver looking sexy in red…
In a one-shoulder red gown by Lanvin. The choice of red was a perfect contrast with her fair skin and dark hair!
My all time favorite dresser – Helen Mirren in a shimmering Badgley Mischka dress.
She chose to covered up her arms in a shimmering Badgley Mischka dress scattered with silver sequins and with wispy sleeves. Teamed with a glittering Chopard necklace. elegance at its very best!
