Mo'Nique at the 2010 Oscars

First off, biggest congrats to Mo’Nique for winning the Best Actress in a Supporting Role from the Academy!!!!!!! That is HUGE!!!!!!!

I think Mo looked really good and her makeup was flawless!!! But, it usually is……

Overall, I think that people played it safe at the biggest night for film, the Oscars.

My absolute favourite had to have been Zoe Saldana’s dress!!!!!! I love a purple and this one incorporated the ombre style similar to P!nk’s dress for the Grammys.  I ADORE IT!!!  It’s super glam!!  It’s fiyah and sexy and demure all at the same time.  And her makeup was very simple but she threw some fierce lashes to play up the shape of her eyes!!! This is by Givenchy Couture, Spring 2010.

Zoe Saldana, Avatar, GORGEOUS!!!!

Even the shoes are hot!

Love these lashes!!!

Here’s Nicole Richie in a sparkly backless number!!!! Her makeup was the best of the night.  Quite dramatic!!! This is from Reem Acra.

And I’m doing this look!!! It was fabulous using 2 popular features – dramatic cut-crease and a winged/cat-eye!! You could even incorporate colour into this look!!!! LOVE IT!

Cut crease and winged liner!!!

I love, love this red and cream dress worn by Katy Perry.  It’s sparkly, and fitted her perfectly!!!! Hot dress!

Ok, so this is the first time in…..FOREVER, that I love what Jennifer Hudson is wearing.  She looks amazing!!!!! I could see myself wearing this dress. I want it! It’s looks great on her!!!!! The cumberband-style gives her the perfect hourglass figure.  And the hair and makeup complements to dress well too!
