The Duchess Watches At Home . . .

The Duchess, like most of her readers (but not all!), viewed last night's Academy Awards from the comfort of home, with dear friends and family and delicious food all around.  One thing in short supply at the Oscars is food.  The prevalent style appears to be anorexic with a soupcon of very anorexic, topped with a tan.  Please ladies.  So boring. 

So the Duchess's "best dressed" list will be very short and sweet.  Her top five (in no particular order, of course): 
Natalie Portman. 
The Duchess isn't her biggest fan but this polka dotted Dior number was unexpected and appropriate for a presenter (take note, J. Lo).  Very pretty.

Rose Byrne.
Hair is the bomb.  Vivienne Westwood dress is very sleek and glam.  Perhaps we have a fit problem?  Of course the Duchess couldn't fit her left leg in that tiny little frock so it's best not to speculate.

Kristen Wiig.
J. Mendel.  Just really loved this color on her, and the silhouette is great.  She also "nailed" the manicure. 

Milla Jovovich.
Was she in a film this year?  The Duchess must have missed it.  Great look.

Emma Stone.
The Duchess's perennial favorite.  This Giambattista Valli was the right color red, and the Duchess personally loves loves loves the giant bow-tied halter.  Good makeup.  Wonderful sense of humor even more important.
