My Thoughts on the Oscars: STOP DRESSING JENNIFER HUDSON LIKE A FAT GIRL AND SOMEONE GET LITTLE MISS

I wasn’t going to write about the Oscars, but there were just so many random mean thoughts that ran through my head, that I couldn’t hold them all in.  Remember when you read this the voices made me post these thoughts..

J-HUD was a DUD. I really wish they would stop dressing her “like a fat girl”.  Doesn’t anyone in her camp know a good tailor???? She’s curvy, yes, but that’s no reason to cover her up with layers.  She’s a beautiful woman, not a cake. I mean pockets in a evening dress? Both Oscar de la Renta and Andre Leon Talley need to be smacked with a old issue of MODE magazine.

Who is Chris Connelly (sp?) and why was he covering the Red carpet? It was like watching my corny high school civics teacher giving commentary on national tv. Just sad.. just sad.. and Lisa Ling is actually a real journalist, but she should leave the red carpet to the Joan Rivers and her spawn.  Cute dress, though

Little Miss Sunshine needs a stylist. I felt sooo bad thinking this.. but I was like her momma needs to stop taking direction from the sales associates at Macys. Poor thing DID look better than she did at the Golden Globes, but the pink rose thing just didn’t work for her. It washed her out and it made her look like a mixture between a hobo and shirley temple. I felt so bad for her, cause she actually looked better in the HP commercials they showed like 30 times during the ceremony.

More on Mr. Talley… I say this without hope or agenda- but he should NEVER, EVER be allowed to speak on red carpet again.  But.. I still love ya, A.L.T… but next time Just stand and let me admire the cape.

forrest whitaker wifeF. Whitaker wife’s dress was one of the best dresses of the evening..

N.Watts, P.Cruz, G. Paltrow– looked amazing… so did A. Hathaway, J. Foster , C Blanchet and D. Keaton.  Everyone put J. Lopez on their best dressed list and the dress was one beautiful maternity dress.

424988204_7138542711.jpgG.Clooney and D. Honsu are just too fine and show men how it should be done when going to a big event like this. If there is a time to invest in a tailored suit, it’s for the oscars. I mean, I know you normally spend like 10 hours in a dark dusty editing room somewhere in the far reaches of some studio lot.. but that’s not reason to look like you just came from a post prom kegger. Oh W. Smith really does have big ears…

H. Mirren– you’re just too hot to be dressing like the Queen.. what happen to the sexy little number from the Globes?

Meryl Streep- brilliant actress… horrible dresser. I mean, I know you have like 15 Oscars and probably break out the knitting needles in the middle of the ceremony.. but dang.. girl.. at least try…  meryl streep

    I agree that JHud’s dresses were as flattering this time. I like her dress at the Golden Globe. That one was amazing.

    And seriously, is anyone going to mention Beyonce’s red dress when she was performing on the stage? I thought that one was the best!

  2. says

    I couldn’t understand the logic behind the bolero jacket with Jennifer’s dress. I wasn’t as bothered by the pockets until she kept shoving her hands into them – I might not have noticed until then. I’ve heard rave reviews about Kirsten Dunst’ dress which I thought was ill-fitting. Meryl Streep…she could have simply stayed home. And why WAS Lisa Ling covering this ceremony??

    I thought Abigail Breslin looked adorable and was dressed appropriately for a ten year old. Don’t try to turn her into another wrecked Hollywood teen!
    But pockets in an evening dress! BIG no-no! The red dress she performed in was much much better. And Jennifer Lopez looked absolutely awful.

  4. says

    I am so glad someone finally mention the pockets on the Jennifer Hudson number!  I thought I was going crazy and that jacket was hideous!

    I thought Cate Blachett looked stunning!

  5. Skylla says

    ALT is the cape man and he gave her a Jetson space cape.  I absolutely agree with you Budget Fashionista!  Hudson needs to be dressed in tailored clothing.

  6. Dee says

    I thought the first outfit Jennifer Hudson had on was soooo cute!! Pockets and all…it was like a comfort thing…The Tin Foil Shrug…NOT COOL…who did that and ran away?? her other outfits, HIGHLY innappropriate!

    What are you talking about?!  Jennifer Hudson looked stunning!  Abigail Breslin looked adorable – and age appropriate, not a little tart.  I actually liked Anne Hathaway’s gown with the black bows at front and back.

  9. jen says

    Anne hathaway looked amazing?  what? she is a beautiful beautiful woman and that white lace frock looked like a lumpy doily with a giant bow on it!

  10. Blair says

    Jennifer Hudson looked GORGEOUS!!! And I absolutely LOOOOOVE pockets in dresses. But my question why isn’t anyone commenting on Maggie Gyllenhall’s dress??? It was by far my favorite (along with Reese Witherspoon). I am not a big fan of Beyonce, but her dress on stage was STUNNING!!! Abigail Breslin is only 10…eventhough her dress did look like something bought at the Disney Store, it also seemed age appropriate!

  11. melody says

    I really thought A. Hathaway’s gown was a nice French looking gown.  Very fashionable.

    I absolutelyhated the fact that of all the colors J. Hudson could have worn, she chose horrible brown and I am tired of seeing her in so much draping as well.  I have seen her in fitted clothing and she looks very nice and voluptuous so what are they covering up ??  She was a mess but her makeup and hair was beautiful.  I also looved Gwyneth Paltrow and Penelope Cruz’s gowns.  Only thing ballgowns are not for the Oscars P. Cruz ! Youre sitting all night !  Plus Ellen almost vaccumed it up !
    And someone please tell me what in the h___ did Cameron Diaz have on ? A Wrinkled Bed Sheet ???

    I thought that Jennifer Hudson looked great!  Loved the cape on the runway…was an extra bit of splash to glam up the simple (but gorgeous) brown silk.  I actually thought she should have left it on to accept her award.  I read elsewhere that the pockets were in response to her request, to help hide her nerves/hand gesturing, during the red carpet interview obstacle course.

    Little Miss Sunshine I also thought was dressed well—nice to see someone age appropriate in there attire. 

    Also, beg to differ on Ms. Foster.  Great hair and make-up; very talented actress and filmmaker; lovely color dress… not a flattering style!  I know she’s given birth to a couple of children, but thats no reason to look like your breasts are so low down on the torso!  It wasn’t an issue of support, so much as one of style for her figure; the angles just didnt work right.

  14. Too2 says

    Oh!  And I forgot to mention how incredible Miss Jennifer was in her red dress performing!  Now thats stylin’ fitted!  Can’t get much more tailored than that 😉

  15. charmaine says

    She looked so beautiful,but the Star Trek cape should’ve been thrown in the garbage. In”What Not to Wear”s garbage can.

  16. DB says

    Keisha Whitaker’s dress in the back was an embroidered train wreck. And oddly enough about Abigail Breslin, she got a best dressed gold compact from Access Hollywood.

    Sally Kirkland was the absolute worst—a multi-colored winged disaster.

    Reese Witherspoon look fabulous in her more modern deep purple dress, although if she loses more weight, she will be all chin. 😉

  17. lisa says

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw JLo was that it was a maternity dress! I am so surprised that none of the fashion recap shows has mentioned that.

  18. soala says

    Have you seen the back of F. Whitaker wife’s dress? It looked like a bird died all over it in a floral garden. Just smashed right in!

    Agree on the Jhud. The capelet was not flattering nor were the pockets. Her almost wardrobe malfunction dress might have been a better choice. Or even her after Oscar dress.

    Shame on Annie Hathaway for wearing that dress. Did the Devil not teach her anything!??!

  19. TBF says

    This morning on the TODAY show, Matt Lauer asked J-Hud the one thing she would change about the night (Oscar night) and she said the dress… So, even the woman herself admits that it was a wrong choice…

    that being said.. her hair and make-up.. as always.. was fierce and she has a great personality which makes her even more beautiful.

  20. TBF says

    P.s. People put G. Paltrows dress on the “worst dressed list” for no apparent reason.. I thought her dress was INCREDIBLE… and M. Gynehall (sp?) looked great as well.

    I think what happens is one person says one thing in terms of who dressed the best and everyone else follows along. If you asked the “commentators” why they thought I dress was bad or good, most couldn’t give you a solid answer….

  21. christal says

    I agree with you TBF and the rest of ya’ll need to stop frontin’, J. Hud’s dress was horrible!!  She looked gorgeous on the cover of Vogue why couldnt she look like that on the biggest night of her life.  And when is J.Lo going to admit that was a maternity dress?

  22. Raya_luv says

    I wonder did anyone notice how great Diane Keaton looked?  I loved how Jodie Foster’s dress & earrings complimented her eyes, beautiful! Merle Streep…is beautiful, it’s almost like she doesn’t believe it!

  23. Julie says

    Didnt Abigail pick out her own dresses? I think I saw some interviews about her picking out her own clothes. If so, then whats wrong with how she dresses? Most if not all kids have bad taste. I believe the HP commercial is an old one, done even before her guest appearance on Greys.

    I love Penelope Cruz’s dress BUT did it look familiar? It kept bugging me all night that I’ve seen that dress on another celeb at one of the awards shows in the past. I still can’t figure it out.

  24. Kelly says

    Just when I think there is no REAL writing left out there about fashion – I turn once again to TBF and get a healthy dose of reality.  I love fashion mags just like any girl but seriously EVERYONE does not look fabulous all the time.  Leave it to TBF to tell it like it is.  You were right on about JLo, D. Honsou, J-Hud and Meryl.  Thank you for “keepin’ it real” as Randy Jackson would say!

  25. Reesy says

    Jennifer Hudson looked a hot mess. I was so disappointed. The red dress she sang in was much better, BUT her bra was showing and she kept bending over and I just knew those breasts were going to pop out any moment. Her presentation is all wrong!

    Here is the thing….she is ambled busomed!!!! She has to be aware of that and stop wearing things that make you look right at her breasts. It’s almost obscene the way her breasts are just right in your face. Take a hint from Queen Latifah, who has this issue and seems to pull it off without a hitch and who looked GREAT!

    I’m over Jennifer at this point. She is overexposed in so many ways!

  26. cathy says

    I hear you about the pockets!! I thought the same thing, although, it was hard to tear my eyes off the silver jacket, which was equally awful.

    I LOVED Helen Mirren’s dress, though!

  27. says

    Here’s the dish about Jennifer’s dress from Page Six:

    “… Jennifer Hudson, did win big – but lost big, too, because of the much ridiculed metallic bolero Andre Leon Talley made her put on. (Post fashion editor Serena French said it made her look “lost in space.”) “Jennifer was kind of sponsored by Talley and Vogue,” said one fashionista. “Andre insisted she wear that hideous Oscar de la Renta dress with the awful, awful gold python bolero.

    “Jennifer really didn’t want to, and so [noted stylist] Jessica Paster got her a beautiful gold Roberto Cavalli custom-made. But when Andre found out, he went ballistic. Moments before she left for the show, there was a power struggle and Jennifer ended up putting his outfit on.”

  28. anonymous says

    the bolero ensemble j hud wore down the red carpet made her look as if she were the lead singer of the star war bands – the dress itself reminds me of those worn in those hollywood movies of the 40s by rich old dowdy women – j hud she is not an old fat woman- she is young and curvalicious :))))))-
    the red dress worn during the performance – she should have worn down the red carpet.
    i wonder if this was a publicity ploy.
    did andre fancy j hud his liza doolittle.
    things that make you go uuuummmmmm

  29. Radiah says

    I agree with Angela about Jennifer Hudson. That dress was horrible and it was Vogue and ALT’s fault! She needs a better stylist.
