Is it possible to be motivated two days in a row? Yes, especially after the Oscars. You see, girls do this silly thing where we sift through Oscar dresses and dub the “Best Dressed” while poking fun at the less glamorous (because as much as we’re ashamed to admit it, we take this rare opportunity to make fun of the perfectly sculpted and their stupidly perfect clavicle bones). But did anyone else feel like the female celebrities were playing it safe this year? What happened to American-Express-credit-card-dresses and egg-dropping swans? I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of white and shades of nude. You know media’s getting desperate when they start making fun of Jennifer Aniston’s boringness (c’mon, it’s to be expected) and wrinkles in Helen Hunt’s gown. We can do better than this Hollywood. Impress me with WEIRD. Gimme something worthy of mimicking for Halloween.
But another thing I especially like about this event are the new names I learn (which follow directly after the line “Who are you wearing tonight?”) Take Naeem Khan for instance who designed Stacy Keibler’s gown. Khan is all about the SEQUINS and bold prints (often times combined).
His work is like a magic carpet ride and springtime. Exotic prints fit for a sultan. To all the famous ladies out there: Yes, it’s possible to play it safe at the Oscars and NOT be repetitious. You’re going to the Oscars for heavens sake…you’re not dead! Go with someone like Khan. He makes beautiful, classy dresses that stand out in a good way (most of the time).
So I’ve come to the conclusion that normal people like me get frustrated at genetic-miracles like you (referring to famous people) because you guys actually have the money AND the body to pull off mermaid-cuts and strapless, backless fabrics. So do it and do it well (aside from donating to charities and adopting children…those two things should always trump fashion and in that order). Just wow us. You are what we talk about at the office when we’re tired of looking at Grumpy Cat or moping over old episodes of Grey’s Anatomy. And if you so feel the urge to Bjork yourself, PLEASE put on a ridiculous headdress or animal-themed cape. I know deep down inside that, unlike chivalry, bravery and humor are not dead :)
