! I’m sure you saw or heard about Sacha Baron Cohen’s
latest publicity stunt for his new movie The Dictator.
So what did he do on the red carpet before last night’s 84th Academy Awards? He ’accidently’ dumped an urn of Kim Jong II fake ashes (rumored to be Bisquick
) all over an unsuspecting Ryan Seacrest. I felt bad for Seacrest who admitted later he knew something might
be up when Sacha requested to be interviewed. The worst part was Sacha pulled his lame stunt on the safest bet in Hollywood.
Seacrest has built an empire between his hosting gigs, radio and television shows so he obviously wasn’t going to freak out or cause a scene. Ryan is a pro and was visibly annoyed, but played it off well joking with his E! costars before simply changing into his spare Burberry tux jacket. What if Sacha Baron Cohen had tossed the ashes on someone like a feisty Kelly Osborne, a crazy Charlie Sheen or Chris Brown at the Grammy’s? Then it would have been an actual scene; not to mention the risk of getting punched in the face and a choatic red carpet chase weaving through celebs. Borat 2.0 needs to step it up if he’s going to get our attention after his Khazakhstan antics because last night’s stunt was weak, rude and ultimately boosted Seacrest’s publicity to a higher level.
But enough about Borat, let’s talk fashion! Here’s my picks of last night’s winners, stars who got left in the dust and the debut of Angie’s bony leg. Who were your faves?
Winner ~ A cape on the red carpet is a fashion risk, but I think Gwenyth Paltrow made it work in this Tom Ford gown and she killed it on stage with Robert Downy Jr.
Left in the Dust: This Giambattista Valli red gown was swallowing Emma Stone alive and unfortunately spit her out on the Oscars worst dressed list.
Winner- Octavia Spencer not only won Best Supporting Actress, she was one of the best on the red carpet in this form fitting Tadashi Shojr gown that gave her a flattering hour glass figure.
Left in the Dust: Kristen Wiig looked pretty and I liked the J Mendel gown but the color completely washed her out of the running for any chance on a best dressed list.
~ Does Guiliana Rancic have any time in her busy schedule to be Hollywood stylist because she is consistently one of the hottest celebs on the red carpet? She did it again last night in this Tony Ward number.
Left in the Dust: Sexy? Yes, but this dress is more appropriate for a weekend in Vegas with her 24-year-old boy toy. J Lo had bloggers insisting they spotted a wardrobe malfunction in this Zuhair Murad revealer. I didn’t catch it.
Winner~ I was pleasantly surprised to see Michelle Williams glowing and looking gorgeous in this bright Louis Vuitton gown with one of my favorite spring trends, PEPLUM.
Left in the Dust: Sorry Sandra, but I was a little blind sided by this ill fitted Marchesa gown. Unfortunately, it’s doing nothing for her figure and should have been locked in the fitting room.
Winners~ Cutest couple until Summer ALERT! George was flawless and his girlfriend Stacey Keibler was statuesque in this golden Marchesa gown. He didn’t go home with the Oscar, but I’m sure he still had a great night as one of the best dressed couples.
~ Including Angie’s pose. Besides the couple’s leg up in the looks department, Angie’s Altier Versace
dress was nothing too special. But, her pose was apparently. She kept sticking her leg out creating a huge buzz and even a twitter account called @AngiesRightLeg
with over 12,000 followers already.
