We’re always on the look out for the good, the bad and the ugly in celebsville. But unlike most of the celebrity rags, we’re more concerned with who’s using their canvas bag at the supermarket than who’s been spending a little bit too much quality time with the botox needle. And what better way to put them to rights than by playing our favourite TV show, Snog Marry Avoid…
The Oscars are the ultimate awards ceremony and that’s why they’re taking pride of place in our own celebrity awards. As if the award speeches of Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Melissa Leo and Colin Firth weren’t enough to entertain, how about all the ways the Oscars went green this year? All of the energy used for the event was renewable, and all of the glass, plastic and china was recycled. Not only was all the food served all local and organic, but the iconic red carpet was made from recycled water bottles. The Academy have tried to be a little more green year on year since Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth was up for Best Documentary, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with in 2012!
For us a vintage dress is just as good as an upcycled piece of fashion – passing on a special or one of a kind piece and getting more wear out of it can only be a good thing. Marisa Tomei’s beautiful Oscars dress was a 1950s Charles James dress from Lily et Cie that we would happily spend a whole day rooting around for in even the most fusty of vintage shops.
Anne Hathaway is gorgeous – fact -and even better naked (did you see Love and Other Drugs?!), so why did she need so many frocks for the Oscars?! Her extravagant eight dress wardrobe for the evening came from Atelier Versace, Oscar de la Renta, Armani, Vivienne Westwood, Lanvin, Givenchy Haute Couture and Tom Ford. Although every dress (and the one stray tuxedo) looked amazing on her, why wasn’t one beautiful gown enough? We think that it would’ve been nice to see one for longer than five minutes – Livia Firth, Marisa Tomei and Natalie Portman all chose one draw dropping number to get them through the ceremony and they all have Oscars (or are at least married to one now)!
