And The Oscar Goes To…

Robin 2

Robin Roberts

Happy Monday Dahhlings!  Here are my personal highlights from last nights Academy Awards Ceremony.

I loved, loved Robin Robert’s dress, the stunning blue, which absolutely complimented her skin tone, and the ethereal glow, which I felt surrounded her.  Robin looked truly beautiful.  After everything she has been through with her health in the past year, she has shown that you truly can get through anything, and come out the other side… Shining!

Shirley Bassey

My heart swelled with pride when fellow Brit, Dame Shirley Bassey, graced the stage with one of her most famous songs “Gold Finger” from the James Bond movie of the same name, starring Sean Connery, released back in 1964.  Dame Shirley looked as fabulous tonight at 76 as she did back them, her pipes still as strong as ever.  Ms. Bassey received a standing ovation, which was richly deserved.

Charlize Theron

Another highlight for me was Ms. Charlize Thereon, with her short pixie haircut {channeling Mia Farrow} and elegant white Dior gown. To me she look graceful, chic and all around beautiful.  I think short hair becomes her.

Jennifer Hudson

And of course there was Ms. Jennifer Hudson with the Dream Girls classic “You’re Gonna Love Me“.  As always, Ms. Hudson sung with everything she had, to full effect.  I’m still amazed that this young woman did not win American Idol in the year she participated.  The good thing is, this was her springboard to fame and ultimately an Academy Award her first time out.

Adele belted out the theme song from “Skyfall”, scoring an Oscar for best original song while she was at it.  My other fellow Brit looked beautiful, her make up, immaculate as always.  I love Adele, she is such a down to earth Londoner, no airs and graces, what you see is what you get.

barbra-streisand

Last but not least, the incomparable Ms. Barbara Streisand sang the beautiful song “The Way We Were”  in memory of those who passed away within the film industry last year.  That particular song always moves me.

I thought I’d finished editing this post last night, when who should appear on my TV screen, but FLOTUS herself, making a surprise appearance looking stunning as always to help present the best picture award with Jack Nicolson. The woman is simply gorgeous!

These were my personal highlights of the evening.  Have yourselves a Beautiful, Fabulous and Amazing Monday… See you on the other side, and remember to…

Love yourself again

  1. I love Adele’s style! She’s my fellow “girl who eats lunch” icon 😉
    I haven’t even had time to see all the red carpet looks from last night but in my opinion practically all of your picks are winners!

    • Hi darling. Glad to hear you’re an Adele fan too. And yes she does eat lunch… lol. I’ve seen some of the red carpet looks for the after parties, some were very nice. Happy Monday!
