Fashion Police: Best Dressed at the 2010 Oscars


Fashion Police: Best Dressed at the 2010 Oscars

I’m sure all the movie stars are clamoring to know:  My god, who did Candy pick as the best dressed of the night?!  I will keep them in suspense no longer…

Queen Latifah’s one-shoulder Badgley Mischka dress is fitted to perfection, and that pink complements her skin tone.  (Aren’t you proud of me for resisting the urge to use a pun like, “… Proving why she is the QUEEN of the red carpet”?  Ha, haaaaaa!)

After wearing relatively boring black numbers to recent events, Penelope Cruz is appropriately saucy in a Bordeaux Donna Karan duchess satin gown.  As Mr. Candy noted, “That Javier Bardem is one lucky guy.”

Da-yum.  Cameron Diaz has got some guns on her!  Which look amazing in this champagne-colored Oscar de la Renta gown that screams Hollywood glamour.  (Well, not literally.  That would be a little scary.)  A golden girl from head to toe.

Gabourey Sidibe surely deserves a spot on this list, not only for her lovely Marchesa gown and bubbly personality, but also for her quip that if fashion were porn, her dress would be the money shot.   And you know how I LOVE porn references.

When I first saw Sarah Jessica Parker in this Chanel dress, I was like, “Ooooooohhhhh.”  But as I continued to I study her, I was more like, “Aaaaahhhh.”  (Don’t be jealous of my eloquent fashion commentary.  It’s taken me YEARS to perfect.)  A fashion risk, for sure — one that people will either love or hate — but at least it’s INTERESTING, and in a romantic way.  Also, kudos to Sarah Jessica for successfully balancing herself with that house-sized bun on the back of her head.  Not an easy feat, I’m sure.

The usually modest Kate Winslet is smirking as if to say, “Yeah, I know I’m rocking this, people.”  And indeed she is in her sleek, strapless gold gown by Yves Saint Laurent and Deco-inspired $2.5 million yellow-diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co.

Well-played, Kate, despite your embarrassingly cheap jewelry.

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
