Miss Lady gets our Be Me or Do Me award of the night; for which she should thank God, her agent and her parents tearfully – and in that order.
This is some serious ’80s Bitch realness going on:
She needs an enormous pile of cocaine on a silver platter and a Champagne flute to throw into the nearest fireplace in anger. Only then will the look be complete.
Seriously, though; this is a total PR move (she’s got a brand new movie with Will Smith and a star on the rise) and it’s beautifully executed. It plays to her strengths perfectly (specifically her resemblance to a young Michelle Pfeiffer) and it looks very different from the standard Oscars gown. We’re specifically loving that huge, gaudy necklace. For one, we’re all for gaudiness making a return to the Oscars. Give us some old school Liz Taylor-style obnoxious jewelry, we say. For another, big jewelry was a trend of the night; specifically around the neck. There were more chokers and pendants in this crowd than we’ve seen the last several years combined. We’re here for that. We’re sick and tired of trying to work up compliments for demure little earrings. We want big, honkin’, cleavage-nestled gems on Oscars night – and lots of them.
