To recap the winners before I get distracted by beautiful frocks….’The Artist’ swept the board last night at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, stealing Best Picture, Leading Actor and Best Director from their biggest rivals, ‘The Descendants.’ I was so glad that they won, as it is an incredible film. Big cheers for Octavia Spencer, who won Supporting Actress and ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’, who took home Outstanding British Film too!
Across the Atlantic, the mood was sombre, as the awards was overshadowed by the news of Whitney Houston’s death. There were tributes galore, both to her, Amy Winehouse and Etta James. The runaway success of the night was Adele- I loved her speech at the end of the night!
Okay, now on to the important stuff….
The Ugly (dress!)
In no way am I saying that Christina Hendricks is ugly by the way! The usually stunning actress wore a shapeless bin bag on the red carpet, and for some unknown reason didn’t brush her hair! Penelope Cruz was a bit better; the colour of her dress is lovely, but it does look like she has a clipboard down her cleavage. Ms. Williams did look quite plain, but she always looks chic, and her dress is from HnM!!!
The EVEN BETTER!
Kelly Rowland and Carrie Underwood lead the way at the awards that showed so many beautiful dresses in shimmering tones. Special mention should also go to Taylor Swift and Kelly Osbourne, who wore my favourite dress of the whole night! The colour and cut of Fergie’s dress was nice, but why on earth did she wear black underwear in a see through lace dress?!
I think Ms. Minaj is trying to pull a Gaga. Why else would she turn up dressed as some sort of Catholic Barbie doll?!
And finally, I just couldn’t resist how dapper Jean Dujardin looked last night! C’est magnifique!
