Post-Oscar

March 3, 2014

So we all collectively broke Twitter and showed the world that Ellen had the power to get anything she asked for simply by being… Ellen. Good thing she doesn’t seem currently interested in invading any countries or heisting the crown jewels. And speaking of jewels, I did my best to break Pinterest by obsessively guessing what the ladies were wearing and then searching to find out if I was right. Regardless of the beating social media took and the amount of Post-Oscar conversing that is staining the interwebs like ink, I feel the need to add my carefully crafted thoughts on the matter.

Lupita Nyong’o in Prada.

Lupita Nyong’o, of course, must be the first topic of conversation. There is something about watching an Oscar acceptance speech that people will be referencing for… a very long time. Think about famous pictures of Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly at the Oscars and then look at this lovely lady. That picture over there is one people will be remembering for a long time, as will her already famous quote that “every child, no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.” However my personal favorite quote from that speech is even more emotional and charged. After thanking the Academy she said, “It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is due to so much pain in someone else’s,” thus pulling us right back from her triumph to the need to honor the pain of the people she represented. So her stock is pretty high this morning, friends. Not as high as Ellen’s of course with her unlimited power to command, but pretty high.

Second of all I would like to highlight a few perfect outfits that did not get as much press as they deserved. Although I am obsessed beyond obsessed with Jennifer Lawrence in Dior and the multiple muted sparkly dresses that graced the likes of Cate Blanchett and Sally Hawkins, there are a few others I think should be highlighted some more. The after party dresses in particular don’t ever get as much press, which is almost criminal when you consider these.

Finally, there were some really amazing pictures taken in the Vanity Fair portrait studio that I just can’t get over. They are not only often hilarious and fun but also really beautiful from a photography perspective. So way to go Mark Seliger.
