I was really enjoying looking at who wore what at the 2010 Oscars last night and I've picked out my three favorite dresses of the night. Cameron Diaz in Oscar de la Renta. The dress goes so nice with her pale skin tone and just makes her look like a princess!
Sarah Jessica Parker in Chanel Couture. I've read so many reviews dissing this dress, but I think it's gorgeous. The cut is quite unusual and almost old-fashioned which just adds to it's charm. SJP is NOT Carrie in real life and people should get it through their heads.
Victoria Beckham in DVB. Everything about it is beautiful. The colour, the cut, the detailing. I'm so impressed with Victoria's designs, she truly deserves some credit. This dress emphasizes all her best body features and hides imperfections.
And the award for the ugliest dress on the red carpet goes to..........Mariah Carey. The dress looks cheap and tasteless despite being Valentino. Horrible.

Look what I found while walking home from Starbucks, overdosed on caffeine! It's a larger than life-size sculpture of Lady Gaga at the Salon Contemporary Gallery on Westbourne Grove. The gallery is in my area but I haven't passed it for months which is why i just saw this amazing piece of art today (note to self: get out more). Its by Sarah Gwyer, a British artist who says that her inspiration behind her works based on celebrities is the notion of beauty that we are so obsessed with and desperate to preserve. A modern-day Andy Warhol? Hmm.. She uses mixed media, particularly the stuff that would be considered to be part of women's crafts. Lady Gaga is made out of buttons, badges, beads and God knows what else. I've checked out Gwyer's previous works and they are equally stunning and I think her pieces are a criticism of the contemporary celebrity culture and how celebrities personify beauty. Their beauty is desirable, perfect but...empty on the inside. Anyways, the Salon ContemporaryGallery always has very different and eye-catching (and often jaw-dropping) pieces on display so go and check it out. Gaga forever.
