A detailed review of the Oscars

You know I am a person of high fashion. You can tell by the way I dress. Did someone laugh? How cruel. It could only a person who knows me.

Well I may not be a high fashion person, but I don't think I have a bad eye for what looks right on other people.

Let us look at some stunners at the Oscars.

Our Cate. Pretty good.


Portia de Rossi, another Aussie lass and partner of Ellen Degeneres. It would not have worked if not for the slightly dykey hair. 


An extraordinary choice of outfits by Liza, but wow, does she look good in herself. It is Liza Minelli, isn't it?


But I don't think anyone did better than Angelina Jolie. Her dress is sthimpling sthunning. Yes, I know about the physical impracticalities of having Brad's babies, but could I try to make babies with him just once?

  1. Hello Andrew,

    Gosh, has High Riser become a fashion blog now?

    Yippee!! We are all for change......as good as a rest we have always thought. Indeed, we look forward to future posts on ....What to wear on a train journey.....or Tartan for trams or, perhaps, what the well dressed bus traveller is wearing this season????!!!!

    Whatever, although you do show some sparkling women here, our favourite was Lupita Nyong'o in her icy blue confection. And, she spoke intelligently too......

    Happy Monday....although yours must be nearly over!!!

  2. JayLa, I do very occasionally delve into fashion, well more what people look like when they indulge in fashion. But I will be back to trains tomorrow. I saw Luptia's outfit. It was ok. I am pleased to hear she spoke well, but hearing her speak would be well beyond my dedication to the Oscars. Funny you mention Tartan. I have been wondering if I could get away with wearing a kilt. If you knew my full name, you would understand why.

  4. I wonder if they ever wear the outfits a second time?

    1. Doubt it Diane. I know the Queen does at times, but often after the garment is restyled in some way.

    1. John, that would be Lupita Nyong'o, as mentioned above. She did look nice too.

  8. My favourite dress was Lupita Nyongo's but you're right, Angelina looked stunning. Cate always looks good.
    I never watch the Oscars but I do like the photos of dresses afterwards.

    1. Jackie, I suppose some people actually watch the Oscars, but no one who I know.

  9. I had imagined that Kim Novak was no longer with us but her appearance at the Oscars proved that only her face from the lips up is dead.

    1. Victor, I had to google her, but oh my goodness gracious. Why? Does she ever look in the mirror?

  10. Agree with those who commented on the lack of colour. Way too many neutrals for my liking. Bor-ring! I didn't even like Angelina's dress much, but as most of the dresses I did like ended up on quite a few of the worst dressed lists, I'm clearly no judge of fashion.

  11. Oh, and hair! So many didn't seem to make much effort with their hair. Naomi Watts looked like she'd just come in from getting milk at the corner store, threw on her dress and jumped in the limo.

    1. Jayne, I may be out of touch but isn't it usual to put the hair up for such formal occasions. I agree about Naomi's hair, boring.

  12. You could try more than once, dear!

    2. Making babies with Brad!

    3. Yes, of course and if necessary, I would.

  13. I'm off to google what Kim Novak looks like now, wasn't she quite gorgeous? French women have a much better attitude to getting older instead of trying to look younger they increase their intelligence and are much sexier for it oui!

    1. Assuming you now have Grace, I have since heard that she is also quite unwell.
