|Hello! Did you all watch the Oscars last night? I was so excited because this was the first time in SIX YEARS I was able to watch the Oscars live instead of just catching the highlights the day after on the news. I'm not a big fan of rewards shows, but the two I do want to watch and look forward to every year are the Academy Awards and the Tony's. I just love the red carpet interviews, the musical numbers, the movie clips, the "In Memoriam" segment, the fashion, and of course, all the unplanned drama that is twittered, and talked about on every news program the next day. And this year's Oscars did not leave us with a lack of things to talk about! I don't know what I had more fun with, watching the Oscars, or tweeting about it. I watched both my T.V. and my IPhone simultaneously laughing at all the tweets as they appeared on my feed. People are so clever and witty! I only wish I could come up with some of the funny lines people on twitter do.|
There were many highlights for me on this years Oscars, but what really struck me was how the more mature women really shined not just in appearance, but in presence, experience, and dignity. First up, Melanie Griffith. Twittered exploded moments after Melanie and her daughter Dakota were interviewed on the red carpet. Dakota, looking beautiful in her hot red Saint Laurent dress came across to the American public as a spoiled teenager, whereas her mother, who has a lot more experience with interviews on the red carpet, handled the awkward situation very well. I did love seeing the mother/daughter duo attending the Oscars together. If only Dakota didn't ruin the moment with her immature behavior. But maturity, is something that just comes with getting older, and more experience.
Isn't Melanie gorgeous at 57? I love her dress! The silhouette is perfect for her and I love the neckline! She looks absolutely stunning. What a figure!
And finally, 31 year old Lupita Nyong's dress was one of the most talked about gown of the night and it definitely caught my attention. This lovely lady is know for her amazing red carpet looks, but this dress consisting of 6000 pearls was absolutely stunning.
Talk about details! How gorgeous!
Now, I really didn't plan on falling in love with the gowns of women over the age of thirty. It just happened that they were the women that I felt not only looked the best on the Red Carpet, but also carried themselves well. They behaved in a professional manner carrying themselves with grace, dignity, and confidence. Traits, which usually only come age and experience.
So what about you, did you watch the Oscars? What were some of your favorite moments or dresses? I'd love to hear from you.
Have a great day! Amy
