Snooze

I won't go over all the hits and misses of the Oscars last night because I'm sure it's everywhere this morning. But, I will say that besides sleeping through basically the whole thing, this amazing woman woke me up every time I saw her

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!

And that dress? Don't even get me started.  LOVE is an understatement!


Beautiful dress, beautiful woman- basically the only saving grace of the evening.
the dress is Givenchy Couture BTW

I know many of you wont agree with me, but its my blog and I LOVE her!

That is all.

TOTALLY my favorite too!

How Cute is She? said...

Mine too! I've been traveling around the blogosphere this morning defending her against the haters! We got to watch the pre show on a 65" HD flatscreen last night and when she came on and they did a close up of her face and the bodice I gasped. Not only is she stunning, but the beadwork on this dress was breathtaking. Hands down, my favorite of the night - and the only one that I will actually remember for months to come.

Erica said...

i am seriously DYING over this dress - it was the IT dress for me - and Givenchy - *love*

KCG said...

I 100% agree with you - Cate looked beautiful and was absolutely one of my favorites of the night! I loved her dress, her haircut, her jewelry - the whole look!

AgathaMChristie said...

Best dress of the evening--ultra modern but utterly classic. She couldn't have looked any lovelier.

I loved the beading, but wished that it hadn't gone to yellow on the back. But the lines of the dress were wonderful. Definitely the best of the evening.

Was bummed because I was rooting for Toy Story as best picture.

I, too, loved loved loved her dress!

Em said...

Oh and it WAS a snooze....I found the variation in tuxedo lapels more interesting than the dresses!

Paradise Regained said...

I whole-heartedly agree! I ended up loving this dress although at first I didn't, and am always happy to see Ms. Cate - she never fails to wear true fashion.

casey at loft and cottage said...

I absolutely always love her! Wrote about her (hair) today on the blog too ;-) She can do no wrong in my book.

JMW said...

Snooze is right - Franco and Hathaway did not bring it last night. Cate was amazing! At first I didn't care for the dress, but the more I saw it and all of its details, it really grew on me.

Lavender and Lilies said...

I was totally on the fence for a bit but I ended up loving it in the end.

charm home said...

Totally agree. I ended up falling asleep before it was over but what I saw was not very entertaining. I did love the fashion though. I thought Mila Kunis's dress was really pretty but I know it had some mixed reviews too.

Leanne said...

I completley loved her. I rewound the TV every time I saw her so I could watch the dress a little longer.

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...

Love her hair, beautiful and I love the pleated detail of her skirt, flawless

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

I totally agree with you - it takes a REAL woman to pull that dress off, and Cate was THAT woman!

Courtney and Jason G. said...

Totally 100% agree and couldnt have said it better.

Looking Glass said...

I love Cate! I recently saw her in a production of Uncle Vanya at the Sydney Theatre Company & she is even more amazing live!! (if that's even possible)

Lindsay @ A Walk in the Closet said...

That dress took my breath away. It reminds me of the flowy Elie Saab gowns but with a bit more "hardcore" twist to it with that front design.

heather said...

Without question, Cate and her dress were the only reasons to watch the whole event. And that's saying something coming from me, Mr. Darcy's biggest fan.
Love your blog!

Stacey said...

I agree with you! And I'm so happy you did this post because now I can save it and look back at it all the time. Thank you!

Katie @ Noodle and Boof said...

LOVED it too! I loved her hair and make up and the colors of the dress against her skin/hair. I definitely think she pulled it off well!

Seagrass Interiors said...

My first reaction to this dress was "only design bloggers are gonna 'get' this dress!" : )

I totally loved it too!!! But it seems not many others shared in our like...I found it refreshingly unique!
