Sério, amiga? The Low-Down on the Oscars

We all know Fashion Police talks about the good, the bad, and the ugly from fashion events such as the Oscars. But I have decided to just focus on the bad, only because life ain’t always peachy.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has, in the past, worn something to a dinner or a party that screamed fashion delusion; or worn something so horrendous that even your best friends turn and say “sério, amiga?”–sarcastically, off course. For those of you who don’t speak Portuguese, it translates to “Seriously, girl?”–as in “Seriously, girl? You wearin’ that?”.

The Low-Down:

At the Oscars on Sunday there were some gowns that were questionable. Some were interesting, nonetheless unappealing; others were, well, not pleasing to the eye to say the least. But extra points for the celebs for really committing to their gowns like a movie role, and bonus for effort!

Don’t be offended if you’re fave celeb made the list. It’s not personal, it’s fashion. (Plus, hooray! at least she made a list, right?).

Love her; Hate her dress

Starting with Camila Alves. Sério, amiga? Her dress was a miss. The color was exquisite. I’m a sucker for blush gowns, but this one was just not working. What’s up the the drapes? And the other drape? And the sleeve drape? And the back drape? Too much, too soon, too fast for my eyes. Camila, amiga, you would’ve looked three times more gorge than you were if the dress were a little more—what’s the word to use?—drapeless.

I Dreamed a Dream this Dress was Flattering

Anne Hathaway, bless her soul, seems to miss the mark on the red carpet. I love her, don’t get me wrong, but this Gucci gown just looked a bit too much for her. Ms. Hathaway looked like she was wearing a “breast plate” like my mother would put it, and not to mention caused a horrible glare. Maybe next time, she won’t look so Misérables.

Thor’n Her Dress Away

Everyone keeps talking about Elsa Pataky’s fashion disaster, not only she is very pregnant with twins, she is very pregnant with twins in an unflattering dress. That’s a no-no. But I’ll let that slide, slightly-not-really, only because her husband is gorge (Chris Hemsworth) and well he had to put up with that dress for the entire night.

 What went wrong: what Elsa Pataky did wrong was opting for a gown that had some sort of weird elastic band under the belly and no shape whatsoever on top; causing what seems to be a very disturbing look. She should’ve opted for something more loose, a moo moo even.

Those we’re my three picks for the Oscars low-down on the no-gown.

Sometimes you can’t get the look you want. But if you try, sometimes you might find a different and more flattering gown for the next event.

Remember, no matter how hard you try—there will be times you’re just going to miss the shot.
