Oscar Talk

1) Best Dressed Female: Reese Witherspoon
If your husband allegedly cheats on you, and then you get a divorce ... find some way to show up at a televised event broadcast in 65 countries looking as hot as she did at the Oscars. Reese was awesome at the Golden Globes and looked even better last night. I love the bangs with the long hair, and whatever workout she is currently doing is certainly working. That girl is smokin'!

2) Best Dressed Male: Mark Wahlberg

3) The dancers? At first, I thought they were going to be annoying, but then, they grew on me. My favorite was the shoe for The Devil Wears Prada.

4) I loved Ellen. She was funny and kept a lighthearted tone throughout the night. My two favorite moments: handing Martin Scorcese a script and asking Clint Eastwood for a picture to post on MySpace.

5) Worst Dressed: Kirsten Dunst
Clearly, when looking at my daily apparel, I'm more in favor of a classic, elegant look. (Stop laughing, Friends. Velour sweatsuits are very elegant. Right?) The gaudy, flashy, sequined look just doesn't do it for me, so it's no surprise that I just didn't get Kirsten's dress. That was the only dress that prompted me to ask "what was she thinking?"

I saw on Yahoo this morning that Gwyneth Paltrow was on the Worst Dressed list, and I don't agree with that. Contrary to what my sister may believe, I am not obsessed with Gwyneth. I am a big fan, and yes, I do think she's a great actress, but that doesn't sway my opinion of her dress last night. It was certainly different, but I thought the color stood out, and it was very flattering to her figure. The hair and makeup were also nice, and I noticed that her lipstick seemed to match the color of the dress.

6) Movie I'm most excited about seeing the next time I visit Blockbuster: Pan's Labyrinth.

Finished "Devil in the Junior League" in 2 days. I now enjoy speaking in code... my favorites are "a shame" and "pay dirt".
