{What do you think of this look?} Academy Awards Edition

If you were watching the Oscars, we applaud you. It took some serious commitment to stick it out to the end. We also applaud our two favorite performances–both of which came from FOF men. First, a knockout hosting job by Billy Crystal; second, the best acceptance speech of the night from Christopher Plummer, Best Supporting Actor winner. As for the FOF Oscar Fashion . . . well, we weren’t exactly bowled over. Honestly, our Fab sisters made a better showing at some of the earlier-season award shows. At least, that’s our vote . . . but what do you think?

Glenn Close

Glenn Close found her power color when she pulled on this form-fitting Zac Posen gown and paired it with a very smart, tuxedo-style blazer. Buuut, when we watched her live interview on the red carpet, things fell apart. The jacket and dress pulled awkwardly across her arms, chest, thighs and belly. In the end, it was like she was battling a green serpent. A very pretty green serpent.

Viola Davis

We’d like to suggest a special lifetime achievement award for Viola Davis’s cleavage and upper arms, which have stolen the show in ever dress she’s worn this awards season. Her flowing Vera Wang gown is a showstopper as well and we love that she revealed her natural hair!

Virginia Madsen

The color of this one-shouldered gown is totally grape. I mean great. But it’s just too long. Virginia, get thee some hem tape.

Jane Seymour

Lady in reeeeed, is defying the laws of physics. Jane Seymour, 61, looks red hot in this chevron patterned gown, and her face is perfect. And by that we don’t mean Botoxed within an inch of its life. Girl’s got radiance and wrinkles. She looks real. Really beautiful.

Meryl Streep

Meryl went gold and green in this Lanvin gown, which was part of the eco-friendly dress campaign organised by Colin Firth’s wife, Livia. Per usual, we liked Meryl’s intention, but her execution didn’t claim the gold. There’s too much fabric here! I want to whip out a safety pin and raise the neckline myself. Not to mention the woefully misguided chain link belt. Oops, we mentioned it.

Sheila E

Prince’s former prodigy, Sheila E, 55, is clearly still living the glamorous life. Not only does she look stunning in this form-fitting white gown, but she continued to look great while she played the drums . . . . through the entire 4 hour show.  Bangin’.

Melissa Leo

No doubt this dress will polarize the fashion press, and I admit, it looks odd on the red carpet. But during her presentation speech, Melissa looked totally cool. She was shimmery and chic but also completely in-character–which is to say, tough, street smart and cool.

    My favorite dress was Ellie Kemper’s. On the red carpet, I believe she described the color as “rust.” Anyway, that color really looks good on brunettes with red highlights like Ellie (and me!).

    Melissa Leo’s dress is just godawful. Meryl’s has too much fabric for her frame, but on stage it actually looked better than it did on the red carpet. And I thought Glenn Close looked better than she has in years.
    Kudos to Meryl, I cried when she received her Oscar, she is so deserving and so talented.

    Meryl I love your work but what were you thinking you are way to beautiful to be wearing something that looked like it belonged at the jersey shore. Women of experience if your going to go strapless please wear a cup size dress that fits the girls. Shiela e you look like you could fall out if you sneezed. which brings me to WHERE ARE THE DESIGNERS THAT CAN MAKE ME LOOK LIKE I’M NOT MY GRANDMOTHER AND NOT A LITTLE KID OR A STRIPPER. WOMEN OF EXPERIENCE NEED YOUR HELP THE OSCARS PROVED IT.
