About a week ago, I got an email from my friends over at News 10 blogs asking if I'd be interested in participating in their coverage of the Oscars, specifically on the fashion front. While I'm certainly no expert in red carpet wear, I jumped at the chance. So on Monday morning at 4:30 a.m. I dolled myself up and headed over to the station to chat on their live morning show with Natalie, another local blogger. And this is what I wore.
I loved the solid clothing with the print tights. I don't know much about TV but I know for photoshoots, solids read better than prints. And colors work better than black or white. I debated wearing this outfit verbatim, but grabbed this shirt the night before to consider as well, and luckily it worked out.
Not sure on the hair, but I didn't really know what else to do. A ponytail is a bit lackluster when your hair is as short as mine--I'd look like a guy from the front. And it was a non-hair-wash day (you know you have them) so leaving it down was not going to be pretty.
And here it is...my five minutes. So that means I have another 10 later, right?
For the record, my faves were Melissa Leo, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Anne Hathaway's burgundy gown (during the show). Hathaway's feminine tux was also stunning.
Did you watch the Oscars? What was your favorite?
