LIFT: Oscars 2011 Edition

L.I.F.T = Looks I’m Feeling Today!!

I love watching award shows. I am always curious as to how trends (be it makeup or fashion trends) are translated by the actors, musicians, industry “people” and their stylists and makeup artists.

Yesterday was no different, as I tuned in to watch the the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. Of course, the red carpet looks did not disappoint.

Below are my favorite looks from last night:

Camila Alves (the mother of Matthew McConaughey’s children) was my standout person of the night. I loved her whole look. Simplicity at it’s best!!!

Jennifer Hudson looked radiant in this tangerine Atelier Versace gown. Again, as with the Grammys, her makeup looked great.

Last but not least, I had to mention Halle Berry. I thought she looked Angelic 😉 in this dress below. I loved her whole look.

My 2010 Oscars Review!!

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards took place last night and I enjoyed the show. When I first saw Zoe Saldana on the red carpet… I gasped, because the bodice of her dress was breathtaking and I instantly fell in love. I thought she would be my standout person of the night. But as the camera began to travel down her dress, I realized I didn’t like the bodice of her dress paired with the ruffles at the bottom of her dress.      

With that being said, below are all the ladies whose dresses made me look twice:         


Vera Farmiga... Her dress was stunning!!



Queen Latifah...She was glowing, and you know how I feel about Pink, lol


Anika Noni Rose.. I really loved the top of her dress.



Elizabeth Banks...this picture doesn't do the dress any justice. I loved it!



Zoe Saldana... Loved the bodice, but didn't like the top half of her skirt.

My Other Thoughts:     

  • I loved that Christoph Waltz won for Best Supporting Actor. He was soo funny (yet soo evil) in “Inglourious Basterds”.
  • Mo’Nique winning the best performance by an actress in a supporting role for “Precious” was my proudest moment.  Although, I didn’t agree with the first part of her acceptance speech… but overall, I was very proud of her. She deserved it!
  • Steven Martin and Alec Baldwin were hilarious as the hosts for the night.
  • I was surprised “Avatar” was not nominated in the Best Makeup Category.

What did you guys think of the show last night?
