I LOVE the Oscars and don't think I missed any events in the last 20 years!!
Yesterday again was a feast to the eye and basically I want ALL of the dresses... but I have to be sensible as going up the escalator to Myer and doing a shopping experience in one of them is nearly impossible. And at the local Pub I would look seriously out of place!
Here are some of my picks and my worst one as well at the bottom.
NOT SO GOOD Amy Adams, the neckline, the hair looks messy, the necklace does not suit the dress and screams for skin..... what a shame as she is a gorgeous woman and her canvas is amazing!

I was recently reminded of one of my favorite celebrities from the 1980s. The fact that I was "reminded" of her proves that she’s a has-been now: a nobody with less than zero credibility. Sad isn’t it. And that made me interested in two things: 1. The fact that fame is something that can come and go as quickly as a puff of smoke, and 2. What does my favorite celebrity from the 80s look like now?
You might remember Jami Gertz from 1980s smash hit movies like The Lost Boys and Less Than Zero. Most recently she starred in Keeping Up with the Steins, but that kind of slipped under the radar. But Jami’s presence in Less than Zero certainly didn’t go unnoticed for me and millions of others. She was the mysterious, confused and sexy keystone in a love triangle with Robert Downey Jr. and Andrew McCarthy.
After Less Than Zero Jami shot to fame with a speed paralleled by her friends’ drug-induced downfall in the movie. She was the "it girl" and she’s got the famous 80s ex-boyfriends to prove it- Corey Feldman, Kiefer Sutherland and even Chuck Norris. But now the fame’s all gone. As is the case with so many other celebrities, once the spotlight’s gone she disappeared from our consciousness without so much as a whiff (proving also that celebs only have the most superficial impact in the first place).
After a bit of searching I resurrected Jami. And you know what? Despite her lack of "cred" in the celebrity scene, she looks great. Check out her lovely layered waves and marvel at how well this cut suits her thick hair. And you’ve got to also acknowledge how flattering her hairstyle is for her face shape, particularly the way the layers through the bottom half complement her slightly narrow jaw. My only tiny criticism is her regrowth... but heck, everything else looks fab.
Anyhow, Jami looks great- as good today as she did in 1987 when I first met her. So she’s not as famous anymore, and maybe the aura about her is gone. But that’s what happens in Hollywood. Apparently there’s a sequel to Less than Zero in the pipeline... perhaps we’ll see Jami on the silver screen again sometime soon.
Cameron Diaz is known to often change her hair coloring from blonde to brown and back again. So what, you may be thinking. Well, here at TheHairStyler.com we've been running a hair color special over the holiday period, tackling issues like "Hair Coloring Fears" and keeping you up to speed on how to keep your hair color fresh. We thought that a nice way to complement our special and to breathe some life into the hair color ideas we've been discussing (for example, choosing the right hair color for your skin tone and complexion) would be to look at a real life example. Cameron's our real life example. So, have a read of our hair coloring articles and apply your knowledge to the photos below and tell us this: which hair color do you think suits Cameron better, blonde or brown?
This is what we think (let us know in the comments below if you agree):
Sure, blonde looks summery and fun, but the brown hair color makes us take Cameron a bit more seriously. Brown looks better because it draws attention to Cameron's lovely eyes. Dark hair looks healthier and shinier, so that's another vote in favor of brown. Certain hair color complements certain complexions better; in Cameron's case brown works best because it doesn't make her complexion look so pinky/red.
All in all, we prefer brown hair on Cameron Diaz. What do you think?
If you feel you have a similar face shape like Madonna here are some Oval Face Shape tips for you:
Many styles will suit you. You can choose almost any hairstyle and any length. Your only considerations will be:
To choose a length and style that will fit in with your lifestyle and personality. Short to medium length hair is best if you are over 40 years in age.
If you have any sharp features such as a long nose, high/prominent cheekbones or a prominent chin then it would be best to choose a hairstyle that has an overall look that is natural an soft. This will soften the effect of the sharp features.
Your own likes and dislikes
The texture, quality, curl and quantity of your hair.
Blush and Contour shading will add brightness and sparkle to a face that is already a pleasing shape. You can have fun experimenting with various make-up techniques.
A basic rule to be remembered when applying foundation, blush or eye shadow is that , light advances and dark recedes.
Apply the darker shades to areas that need to be visually diminished and the lighter shades to areas that need to be advanced.
Apply blush just under the ball of the cheekbone, directly below the outer part of the iris.
Extend in a smooth arc, fading towards the ear.
Although many styles of hats will suit you, by far the best are those that have large brims that are either floppy or straight.
Always keep your proportions in mind when you select the size of your hat. If you are short in stature or have a small bone structure, you could easily be overpowered or made top heavy by a hat that is too large for you (and vice versa).
Take your body’s scale into account when selecting how wide your brim is to be. Don’t get caught looking like a mushroom. The best width is never wider than your shoulders.
Many styles of eye wear will suit you. Your only considerations will be:
The frames must also be in proportion to your head size. A woman who has a small head will need smaller frames for balance and vice versa.
Decorative or contrasting temples can also be added to give width to the face.
A low bridge will shorten a long nose and a high bridge will lengthen a short nose.
Update your glasses every two or three years with a current style.
Do not wear obvious bifocals as they will make you look older and out of date. Ask for no-line progressive lenses.
Again as for glasses, most shapes of earrings will suit your face shape.
to enhance your cheekbones select earrings that have a diagonal design (sloping upwards and away from your face).
Do not wear dangling earrings with glasses.
