Post-Oscars Fashion Musing
I'm one of those who TiVos the Oscars so I can skip through all the boring, insincere, overly-rehearsed thank you speeches. Can you tell I'm not one of those fawning types? I prefer to heckle the TV like a one-gal Statler and Waldorf from the Muppets.
Should I ever have occasion to go to the Oscars (It could happen. Don't they usually need seat fillers?), I've developed some fashion guidelines. First, I will not wear a dress that requires double layers of Spanx (didn't Kathryn Bigelow's dress look horribly uncomfortable?). Second, I won't wear anything that means I have to grab onto an Oscar helper boy's arm to navigate stairs. How can that be fun to worry about tripping on your dress all night?
