the above all come from UK’s Telegraph
this last photo is from Oscar’s official site
My general impression was that no one wowed me:( The above three wowed me in the details I mentioned, whereas I prefer the overall effect to be breathtaking, rather than just admiring an element of the whole. I thought Hollywood stars had the power of almost always triumphing in the overall effect; the one when you are so impressed you don’t know where to settle your sight, you admire all over and every time you rescan the photo you discover something new and slowly, only bit by bit, the details come to focus and you can verbalise what it was that made you love their look.
I’m no critic, just a fan with a right to be overwhelmed or disappointed and I sadly confirm, these Oscars no one gave me the above described impression. I did like very much the face and coif of Kate Winslet. When I’d look at just her head I would have precisely that effect of being so under the impression of perfection that I’d not know for a long while what exactly it was that impressed me so much.
The dress of Marisa Tomei is just occasion perfect, plus shows little or no signs of belonging to an era and there’s just something about timeless looking pieces.
Heidi Klum’s earrings perhaps would never be an item of jewellery I would pick out to wear, both for style (a little too long for me) and practicality (seem way too heavy to be comfortable), but they have my favourite earring motive – floral, plus my favourite earring shape – large but neither round or loose hanging, close to the face and motionless. Although, with the earring I could put my finger on what I liked straight away, without having to rescan in admiration, they still fit into the category of stunning and perfect in their own overallness.
Lastly, I wish I could say more about my icon Sarah Jessica Parker, but I have 4 comments which are rather weak. She might have worn a Dior gown and it might have even fitted her perfectly, but I did not experience the usual awe effect I do when I see her all made up. Secondly there was an unbelievable resemblance to Madonna, who is another lady I am usually so fond of in terms of style and fashion, yet the resemblance did not make me admire the overall effect as if it were two perfections (SJP and Madonna) combined into one. Strange. Furthermore, I very much liked the fact that she had her natural hair colour (even if it was dyed to look natural) as a while ago I have also cut of all my blond (whether salon or sun lightened) and subconsciously I feel a bond and liking with all women whom I suspect are sporting their natural dark blond. Nevertheless I did not find myself overwhelmed with the effect this natural hair colour was giving SJP. Why? Lastly, I’m uncertain as to how much my stance on the topic is final, but I’ll just say it anyway. I’m not sure how much I disliked what the corset of the gown did to her chest. I’m pretty sure she has not had breast augmentation yet this is what the tight bodice made her breast to look like; not in the sense of larger, but in the sense of lacking natural bubbliness, they looked stiff and unnaturally round and hard. I think I’ve gone too far in criticizing a lady I really admire so much, so I will rest here, perhaps by adding that regardless of these observations I still think she is amazing:)
