Oscar Fashion Report

What did you guys think of the fashions at the Oscars? I noticed lots of deep reds, ruffles, and big flowy dresses.

Here are my faves (click to enlarge):

My Girl Crush, Kristen Stewart: The dress was BEAUTIFUL, a work of art. Loved that she wore her hair back in an elegant bun with simple makeup. And I thought it was very Kristen to keep the jewelry simple as well - no earrings or necklace but instead one heck of a bling bling bracelet.

Rachel McAdams: Loved the dress - it looked like a painting in motion! Not sure if I like those particular earrings paired with that dress but Rachel can pull anything off in my book.

Cameron Diaz: Thought this dress was a little more formal/classic that what Cameron typically wears but I thought it was really beautiful. Nice she kept the hair down in her typical Cameron style.

Amanda Seyfried: Loved the intricate pattern throughout the dress - very beautiful overall effect paired with perfect hair and makeup.


And now on to my least faves of the night...

Miley Cyrus: Alright, I'll be honest - Miley drives me nuts so I was already biased against her before she set foot on the red carpet. Hair and makeup was nice but the top of her dress really bothered me. I mean, it's pretty much a bustier, right? And she's a teenager, right? So it's weird.

Charlize Theron: What was up with the boobie detractors? Seriously, when she was presenting - all I saw were two eyes staring at me from her chest. An unfortunate design, really.

Sarah Jessica Parker: I didn't really hate her dress, just wasn't loving it. No shape and stuff. But what really got to me were the insane amount of fly away hairs she had. That's all I could look at when she was presenting. Her stylist couldn't have smoothed that stuff out?

Zoe Saldana: I love Zoe so it hurt me to put her on this list. But c'mon - what was up with that dress? There was just so much going on - top half looked very disco ball-y and the bottom felt very Vegas showgirl. Still love ya, Zoe!

How about you guys? What dresses were you loving and hating last night? Post your thoughts below!

I'm such a dork!

On photoshoots, I enjoy being behind the scenes. In fact, I prefer it. Why? Because when a fancy camera is pointed in my direction, I just end up acting like a freak!

Exhibit A was highlighted in a previous post.

Exhibit B is below. Prepare to get dizzy again!

Romantic Dress Shoot

OK... so I haven't been doing a very good job with blogging about makeup and the work I've been doing on photo shoots and what not. Well guess what? Today someone did the job for me! So let me just send you over there to see the fun shoot I worked on today.

Today I worked with the wonderful stylist, Lim, and she is all over the blogging! Here are some teaser pics... headed over to her blog for more behind the scenes info. There are also some additional posts on Lim's styling and our team.

Just adding the final touches on Becky, our fab model
