Okay, so this is the first time I’ve live-blogged anything, so please bear with me.
I won’t be blogging the ENTIRE Oscars, ’cause I just don’t stay up that late. But I will blog the red-carpet, and maybe a bit beyond.
Keeping with the theme of this blog, I’ll make a special point of noticing and commenting upon jewelry. However, I won’t be limiting myself to only jewelry, and may make the odd comment regarding anything else that catches my eye.
So, I hope you all have wine in hand, popcorn in bowl, and tongue firmly in cheek.
BTW: Am watching the ABC coverage, as it’s in HD. Just so you know.
8:00: Robin Roberts looks pretty. I see that she’s following the “big cocktail ring on index finger” trend that we’ve seen a lot lately.
8:04: I love you, Tim Gunn. Come live with me.
8:05: Maria Menounos is also doing the big cocktail ring. I’m not sure if that gigantic sparkly thing on her wrist is a bracelet, or part of her dress.
8:05: Mila Kunis. I like the purple, but I’m not keen on the sheer. I love her earrings — a really different and pretty shape. Stand up straight, though. For someone who used to be a ballet dancer, her posture is crap.
8:07: Hailee Steinfeld. She’s so cute and poised and pretty. Not a BIT of jewelry on her, except for a tiny subtle ring, which is interesting and brave, but it works, considering that her dress is pretty sparkly.
Commercials: Cheese puffs, or popcorn? I can’t decide.
8:14: Amy Adams: That’s a pretty necklace, and a pretty dress, but I just would not have worn them together. That high neckline, calls more for earrings. And the stones don’t contrast enough with the dress to look cool — just enough to look like they clash. Fail, Amy.
8:15: Jennifer Lawrence: Gold! Nice to see! I kind of wish she’d worn her hair up, so that we could have had a better view of those earrings.
