These days, the only nominated movies I've watched generally fall in the "best animated feature" category and I watch for two things: the tribute to fallen stars* and, of course, the fashion.
*Totally fell asleep this year before the tribute AND the drama at the end of the show.
I was lucky enough to have two kids who wanted to watch the red carpet with me. Kid 3 was interested in the opening number, which I took as a nod to Memphis pride and JT but, in reality, I'm sure it had more to do with the song being from Trolls. The Girl Child and K1 were all too happy to watch and critique the fashion choices with me. And, man, are they same hard critics! Woah!
I thought I would share our favorite looks from the night:
Oh my goodness. HOLY STUNNING. I'm not normally a fan of dresses that basically match the skin tone (which is why, even though I loved her dress, you won't see Emma Stone on my list) but Nicole Kidman can pull it off. Oh man, can she pull it off. I thought she was beautiful, classy, and graceful. The kids and I agreed that this was our favorite look of the night.
Viola Davis is a very close second. That dress is amazing and her overall look is just class, class, class. I absolutely adore how vibrant that red is.
We caught a glimpse of Tracy Pollan when she and Michael J. Fox walked the red carpet. It was just a glimpse but I loved the color so I had to Google to see the whole look. LOVE that dress!
I actually hated her hair - and, I get it, she was going for a natural look but you can be natural while also not looking messy - but that dress! How flippin' gorgeous.
And, there ya have it, what three people in southwest Tennessee thought of the fashion at the 2017 Oscars!
P.S. Laissez les bons temps rouler! My heart will be in NOLA today!
