Pretty Oscar Dresses 2017

I'm not going to lie. I'm having trouble picking out favorite dresses at this year's Academy Awards. I'm not a fan of the full skirted, antebeullum-que styles I'm seeing, and I don't like the slits down to an actress' belly button. (Can't a designer give a client a whole dress?😎) And ... with the big puff ball gown, are you wearing the dress, or is the dress wearing you? Nor am I seeing showstopper dresses this year. So with these remarks said, above are 4 of my favorites. What are yours?
A Zac Posen gown.
Nonetheless if you do go full skirted antibellum, have fun with it like Leslie Mann. She looks adorable in her Disney inspired princess gown! You still notice her lovely waist.

  1. Ah, here I was going through the Oscar gowns, and thinking much the same as you. Lots of them are....meh.... So far I have chosen Nicole, and the yellow full skirt, and maybe one of the red ones. I miss Angelina, and Cate - they always turned up in something new and spectacular!

    1. Thanks for saying so, Trish. It's not just me then. A "wow" factor was missing this year. When you see it, you know it. And with top designers dressing the attendees, you expect it.

      Those full out skirts surround the body too completely. They remind me so much of the Nutcraker's character, Mother Ginger! Ocassionally, I liked a dress but didn't care for the shoulder or neckline. Most years I won't have selected the 1st dress (Nicole's) as a favorite because it's so straight, it hides her gorgeous figure, but this year, I had to choose something.
