Post Oscar

entertainment and popular culture

This is brilliant (h/t Jeff F):

I missed the Oscars themselves, but I have now waded through three photo galleries of The Dresses. Mostly everyone looked very nice. “Howevers”: The critics loved Maggie Gyllenhaal’s gown, which to me looked like wrap made out of a beach towel. Kate Winslet’s dress, which also drew many comments of admiration, looked like the foundation of a Valkyrie costume; add a cape, a spear, and a horn helmet, and she’d have been ready for Wagner. Note: I’m tired of hard bustier bodices. Miley Cyrus needs posture lessons. Today Sarah Jessica Parker probably wishes she had worn something else. But I guess the days when Cher would show up in Bob Mackey showgirl beads and feathers are over.
