The Oscars – the biggest night for film actors and creators everywhere. It is the highest honor to be awarded the gold statue and marks significant accomplishment in an actor’s or director’s career. So of course such a prestigious award has to be given a prestigious show and Oscars 2017 surely delivered last night.
Starting off on the red carpet, there were some amazing looks, as always, not just the gowns, but the men came out to serve as well. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson definitely served in his blue velvet blazer and red carpet host Michael Strahan also rocked a snazzy two piece velvet suit. Big winner and first awardee of the night Mahershala Ali wore every inch of his suit and very well I may add! And as always and my man, Justin Timberlake stole the show, not just with his dapper threads, but also with his fantabulous opening number. But I wasn’t surprised; it’s JT, that’s what he does! He’s a performer and he does it very well.
Actress Emma Stone shimmered and shimmied on the carpet in a gorgeous, gold Givenchy gown and Taraji P. Henson was sleek in her blue, velvet Alberta Ferretti gown, looking gorgeous as always, but my girl – singer turned actress, Janelle Monae came to make a slaying statement. Some hated it, most loved it and I was definitely a fan. Her Elie Saab couture gown was indeed a showstopper – there was no way not to notice her ensemble.
But not all the ladies served it up last night, surprisingly there were some night gown-esque looks that really needed to be under covers and not on the red carpet. The main culprit, Dakota Johnson – ummm why?? For such a young actress, her grandmother’s closet should not have been a viable shopping location. Not only Dakota, but actresses Michelle Williams, Felicity Jones and Leslie Mann also had fashion flubs this year on the red carpet with poor fitting and less than flattering gowns.
And Miss Berry, Miss Berry – all that hair! I love me some Halle, and she usually slays on the red carpet, but this year……*shrugs shoulders*. Not sure if it was a wig or her natural head of curls, but some taming was in order. The curly fro was too huge and nearly swallowed her entire face. We forgive you this time Halle.
I’m not even gonna go into the HUGE flop at the end of the night, but all I’m gonna say is…..well….Steve Harvey is now off the hook! Twitterverse and the internet now have someone else to hate on and ridicule for messing up and calling the wrong name. I think it’s a new trend they’re starting to increase ratings for these shows. But hey, what do I know? * sarcastically raises left eyebrow*.
