Some call the Academy Awards the pinnacle of award season and yet this years red carpet was good, but it really didn’t have that “wow” factor that it normally has for me. A more simple and understated elegance seemed to rule on the Oscar carpet this year. Truth be told I would gladly overlook the average red carpet if only my girl Rooney Mara would have won best actress for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Despite the let down, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Mrs. Jolie strut her stuff in that black Atelier Versace. She worked that dress with its thigh-high slit for all it was worth. Mrs. Paltrow, as usual, looked flawless in white. I loved the matching floor sweeping cape she wore on her arrival, it was so handsome and very old Hollywood. And last but not least, Miss Mara knocked it out of the park, you can really never go wrong with Givenchy. She is such a fresh beauty and wears couture with an ease. I hope to see Rooney nominated again next year for perhaps a Dragon sequel and her redemption title for best actress.
Meryl Streep – enough is enough.
