Apparently all you had to do was sing last night and you received a standing ovation. I wish I could be as generous with the fashion but, alas, my home is not Hollywood (plus my heart is made of stone). Let's start out with the good news. My love affair with the fashion of Lupita Nyong'o rages on! Never has a woman made such tremendous use of all the colors of the rainbow. LN is forever stepping out in a different luminous hue. This Prada was exquisite from the color to the cut (although it was a teensy bit too much bony sternum for me) to the movement of the fabric. She was the embodiment of elegance. If I had to change one thing, though, I think I'd have dressed her in this princess gown for the Golden Globes and traded for the red columnar Ralph Lauren. Regardless, a Standing O is in order.
While we are on the topic of sternums, I should point out that the view of Kate Hudson's was perfection (lithe but not bony). This Atelier Versace was truly worthy of fashion's most important red carpet. This old-Hollywood-glamour look suits her perfectly...and the dress fits her perfectly too. (Fun fact: Kate Hudson has big ears. Thank you, God, for not creating her 1,000% perfect.) Standing O!
Now onto the bad news. As my sister questioned, was Whoopi's dress a weird tribute to, or a mockery of, Julia Robert's Golden Globes dress? Either way you slice it (speaking of slicing, what happened to Whoopi's sleeves?!) it was a mistake of epic proportions. No pun intended. Hell no, Whoopi.
