Red Carpet Glamour

The Academy Awards were pr-ER-tty good this year, if you'll forgive the pun. Certainly, I'm not the only one who watches to see the lovely ball gowns along with who wins the awards. This year, hands down, I think Sandra Bullock wore the most beautiful dress of the evening. She looked stunning! Such a classic and elegant gown. And, didn't you love seeing her husband, Jesse James, a tattooed motorcyle man in everyday life -- with a tear in his eye during her acceptance speech? Earlier she said what she loves most about being married is having someone who watches her back. Congratulations to Ms. Bullock on all counts! It's quite possible, I love Sandy the way she loves Meryl Streep. You go girl!

My picks of who else stood out at this year's Oscars include:
Top: 1) Sandra Bullock is wearing an embroidered and silver beaded Marchesa gown. [Her Tiffany platinum and diamond earrings and bracelet are gifts from Jesse.]; Middle: 2) Amanda Seyfried is in a light green Giorgio Armani Privé gown encrusted with crystals; 3) Cameron Diaz is wearing a gold sequined and jeweled Oscar de la Renta; Bottom: 4) Demi Moore has on a blush, tiered Atelier Versace gown; 5) Elizabeth Banks is in a blue gray, ruffled and tiered Versace.

  1. Sandra Bullock is my favorite, too. A true star, and a real person, too! And Demi still looks fabulous! I love the blue gown. I became very discontented with clothing in the 80's and found a dressmaker who would make dresses from material and patterns I selected. Unfortunately she moved to California. ( She would notice - and chastise me - when I gained a half-inch anywhere!! - That made her priceless!) Actually the cost was much less than I would have paid retail for anything comparable, and I was able to have it just the way I wanted - in silk!

  2. Ms Loretta,

    What a dream!! Worth a vacation to California every couple of years to have dresses made. I love silk.

    The stills don't do Sandra Bullock's dress justice. It glittered and moved with her so well.
