OSCARS 2018!

And the winners were:

A tie:


Lupita Nyongo
Exquisite.   Her makeup is not overdone and that quasi-tiara is a delicate touch.    She needed the right earrings and possibly necklace to stand alone on the winner’s podium.

and

Nancy O’Dell
Nancy is working this outfit very well and brings it up a notch.    The highlight stripe is a wonderful tapestry of beads and stones.    As it meanders to the top, it accentuates her curves well.

Honourable Mentions:

Jennifer Lawrence
Solid, but no real standout here to take her to the upper echelons.

Eiza Gonzalez
Herculean (or Amazonian) task here to pull this off with this shade of yellow at an event of the Oscars’ tone.    For starters, the dress should have been shorter.    Nonetheless, it’s well made and fits well.

Camila Alves
Effortlessly elegant.    The necklace is the stealth champion in this outfit.

SAG Awards 2018

The winners were:

Allison Brie:
Wowza.   It seems she doesn’t even know how well she has done here.   Reds are difficult to pull off on the red carpet, and this dress is simple in terms of fabrication.   However, that lightning bolt of pizzazz really electrifies the dress without being garish.   One side of the dress is tame, and the other side is wild.   Superb contrast.   The slit, and her shoes are perfect.   Extremely well done.  The rest is how she carries it, and my oh my… she does carry it well.

Renée Bargh:
Refreshingly unique, and just the right colour and accessories to look heavenly.    Brilliant,  just brilliant.


Lupita Nyongo:
Lovely.   It fits so well!   … it’s just a tad sombre.   She is clearly coming in to her own in terms of style.
