The men are killing it again! At the Grammys, the dudes outdid the ladies when it came to adventurous fashion, and they repeated their achievement at tonight’s Oscars. Tuxedos are getting lively! I liked the blue tuxes worn by Kevin Spacey and Jason Sudeikis, and the burgundy one worn by Michael Strahan.  E! red carpet host Ryan Seacrest wore a white tux jacket, as did Best Supporting Actor winner Jared Leto and nominee (at the time I’m writing this, he’s still a nominee) Matthew McConaughey. Outrageous former figure skater Johnny Weir wore head-to-toe white — are those jeggings? — with sparkling silver shoes.

But the winner of my prestigious Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award is Pharrell, making him a two-time winner. His Vivienne Westwood hat stole the show at the Grammys, and tonight his tuxedo shorts made the kind of controversial fashion statement that earns my approval.


Pharrell and wife Helen Lasichanh. I like that Helen dressed in a complementary way.

Runner-up is Jared Leto, who stood out from the other white-jacketed fellows with his red tie and flowing hair.

My more traditional best-dressed pick — without the “wear what you want” touch of crazy required for my combo award — is lovely Lupita Nyong’o, aka Jared Leto’s future ex-wife. Her light-blue Prada gown was beautiful and I liked her nontraditional jewelry, including her gold-and-diamond headband.

She was so poised during her red-carpet interview. I am hoping she wins her category; I’m sure she’ll give a great acceptance speech.

Less poised on the red carpet was Jennifer Lawrence, who tripped over a cone. I swear, if that girl falls one more time, I’m going to insist that she get screened for a neurological problem!

    Screened for a neurological problem, indeed. I’m only to the singing of the song from Frozen, so I appreciate no give-aways here. I’ve all of a sudden forgotten that new term for having told the outcome. Rats. Oh, is it spoiler? I think I got it!

  3. I missed the whole show, Wendy…and I was REALLY looking forward to the red carpet, too!! Drats!! But since I’ve been in an Internet wasteland for the past week (otherwise known as my parents’ place in Toronto!) I’ve had sooo much catching up to do; no time to turn on the television!! Thank goodness for your line-up of fashion highlights…at least now I have a clue!! 😉
