Bring Back Bjork!
(All photos Huffington Post)
Who could forget? Taken in 2001…when stars were prepared to be human and dress for themselves…and give us something to truly talk about..
1969 – Barbara Streisland
1999 – The wackiness that is Celine Dion
1996 – Our own Kate Winslet, still rough around the edges…
1990 – Kim Basinger..never really got the hang of Oscar night…
1989 – Demi Moore – striking out..sort of..
2003 – Hilary Swank..less swank..more net..
1986 – The indomitable Cher
We bow down to you – come back! All is forgiven!
Bring back free thinkers….your world needs you!
It so does..I fear the media has made cowards of all of us…
Do you know this http://nprfreshair.tumblr.com/image/78114320447 ? I found it great
I love it!! In fact today I’m ordering some enormous noticeboards for my office in a vain attempt to keep it organised..and this will go on it! xxx
Oh my goodness. How different did Winslet look back then…
Innocent almost! But I rather like the femme fatale Winslet she’s grown into… x
I totally agree! Especially after seeing the Isabella Blow retrospective over the weekend – the people who are prepared to push the boundaries of fashion are always the most interesting. These days most of the red carpet stars look like they’ve been dressed by the same stylist – polished but a bit boring. Xxx
Wasn’t that a special exhibition! She may have left an impressive wardrobe..but she left a huge hole in the fashion world. It just seemed so natural to her..not like the people who hang about fashion week…she is missed xxxx
How do you get. your blog so populair? http://www.blogforthestyle.wordpress.com
Hard to say! But I think it’s the circle of life..you write, you like, you comment, you travel to other Blogs, they travel to yours..it’s a conversation that keeps running – good luck! x
I feel a revolution brewing… xxx
Yes, let’s start a revolution to bring back fun and extravagance on the red carpet ! xxxxx
Maybe we can start a new fashion movement..we’ll have to come up with a name….
Hear, hear! 😉
I just look and think..where have all the personalities gone? Stepford Oscars…it’s not fun! xxx
Cher must be the fashion faux-pas queen…but I really dig her style 😉
I, too, miss the quirky Oscar fashions. xoxo
Wasn’t she just fabulous?? Now I fear it’s all a conveyer belt..not helped by the designer brands knowing it’s such a big deal..but it’s become so sanitized…even Madonna would bring a smile! x
Your Oscars are better than anyone’s!
How fun would it be to turn up at an event wearing the Bjork dress?! I fear my stomach in the Cher number would not have the same effect….! xxx
oh my…that swan dress. thanks for the memories 🙂
I’d forgotten quite how wrinkly the tights were!! xxx
Yes! It was oh so not perfect 🙂
I blame Joan Rivers and that annoying little Osborne tyke of Fashion Police. No one, especially the American stars, can bear to be ridiculed. Helena Bonham Carter and her two different colored shoes still has them all shuddering!
Did you see her outfit? Something my granny would wear…. xxx
I love when people take risks! Who cares if the looks were questionable?! They were creative! I always feel like even it’s a “fashion miss,” we are still talking about it- and that’s how art is! It gives us all something to talk about!
Does it come down to how we perceive beauty..or how we’re meant to see it..with the pretty girl next door looks – instead of drama and confidence? Somehow it feels really manufactured and wrong.. xxx
Yep – agree. Although I could not deny that some pieces were absolutely stunning it was all very safe and blah; I will probably forget all these dresses next week.
What amazes me is they have this pressure to look good..amazing dresses on offer..and yet..so many still get wrong shapes for body type..or colours that wash them out..I mean..if you’re going to get it wrong..get it REALLY wrong!! xxx
Exactly!!! Plus isn’t the whole point being talked about so why all these forgettable looks? Xo
It is interesting how in the men’s fashion world, designers propose suits that are more and more colorful, yet the people on the red carpet still dress in white, black and the occasional blue. We feel however that this might change soon.
Anyway, this was a nice retrospective to look at.
I agree – I think this was the first high level event where I’ve seen men take risks – shorts?? Kevin Spacey in his blue definitely got my vote! I look at the Sapeurs and think..come on guys..if they can..why can’t you?! I hope things are going to change.. xxx
Nice that you mention the Sapeurs, as we have an article about them coming up on Attire Club!
Ha! So good to see that swan dress again! Bjork 1, Fashion Police 0.
Couldn’t believe how much time had flown!! But that dress will always remain strong in the memory! (unlike most of the others…) xxx
