As expected the Oscars were a triumph of fashion dos and don’ts.  We’ve taken some time to reflect and here are a few of our considerations……

We wonder what was going through Anne Hathaway‘s head when she chose to fit an ill fitting pale pink Prada dress (dubbed “Le Nipperables” by TMZ.com!)  at the last minute instead of the Maison Valentino one she had originally planned to wear… could it have been some sort of throwback to Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink ill fitting Ralph Lauren dress which saw her win her Oscar for Shakespeare in Love……

……..and we do have to spend a couple of words to express our surprise at Catherine Zeta Jones who usually looks divine,  who chose a very very gold number by Zuhair Murad which left many tweeters asking if she’d dressed up as The Oscar or worse still as a Ferrero Rocher, not to mention the rather copious amounts of make-up she appeared to be wearing!

Almost making it to the Best dressed on the night according to the Green Pebbles Girls are the girls in Grey/Lilac….. Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta and Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen.  Although we loved the design of both the gowns we really do need to wonder about the colour choice.  In addition to that Amanda Seyfried was clearly in pain wearing the corset to help her get into the dress and complained on air about it to one of the interviewers “I can’t sit down, I feel like my organs are being pushed out of my body slowly.”

A special mention has to go to the wonderful Helen Hunt who did a GAP-SHARON STONE number and chose to wear an H&M dress with jewellery worth over $700,000.  She would have made it in the best dressed list, had it not been for the fact that the dress was terribly creased!  Surely there’s enough space in a Limo to fit a stylist with a travel iron!
