    *reader comment by Jen*
    – I thought SJP’s dress was horrendous! It looked like a yellow sack!

    In response to Jen:

    Yeah, I know what you mean.. I’m kinda on the fence about it since I love the colour and the floral detail, but it is rather sack-like. And that front vertical seam makes no sense.

    If I had to pick any of the dresses from that night to wear…
    I would have chosen Rachel McAdams’.

    I feel as though it would have been super comfortable!

      Thank you for your comment!
      Yes I agree about Rachel McAdams’ dress- and the colours are stunning, too! I’m big on comfort, too. I wonder if all the gals were wearing shaper tops. Probably.

      I did like JLo’s gown and I felt bad for Zoe Saldana- I really want to like it but somehow that shape around the hips and that front slit just don’t look great.

    I like Sandra’s dress and Colin Firth’s ensemble. Jennifer looks fab in Armani – but I wouldn’t wear that colour. Then again, if I was going to the Oscars, my arm could be twisted to wear lilac.
