Oohing and aahing as Robin Roberts interviewed the Oscar stars on the red carpet in their amazing dresses I had a brief fantasy moment. Could I wear some of those dresses please? Even if I could fit into them, where would I ever wear them?
We know Hollywood isn’t about reality – but we can’t help but think – what if we could wear one of those dresses just for one night? It’s the Hollywood trap — thinking that people actually wear these clothes. I admit to falling victim to a night at the Oscars fantasizing about wearing one of Oscar’s prized outfits. How fun would it be to try on a few of the amazing gowns and even wear them out on the town.
I would love to suspend reality a bit and play in Oscar’s closet — wouldn’t you?
If you could wear one of the Oscar dresses anywhere – which one would you wear and where would you wear it to?
I’m thinking the only chance I would ever have to don a facsimile of one of these gowns is for a super big event but gee – I can’t think of one on the near horizon. As a guest at my friends’ kids’ weddings – I don’t think an Oscar # equivalent would work at all. The only event I could even imagine dressing in a memorable treasure dress –could possibly be as a MOG (mother of the groom) –but that will have to wait.
So when fantasy and reality collide what does that look like? Trying to be fair and not too critical — I really tried to imagine these dresses with small breasts and wider hips to fit my 50-something figure. And when I slipped into one of these in my mind’s eye – I think I may have found 4 that I love.
Here are a few of my favorites from Oscar’s closet. I couldn’t pick just one of these, I would love to try on Emma’s, Sienna’s, Cate’s and Laura’s. Which ones do you want to wear?
