The 84th Annual Academy Awards (or The Oscars, to us common folk)

After sifting through the barrage of Oscars red-carpet photos, I have come to the conclusion that I'm not particularly enamoured with any of the dresses that were worn last night. Don't get me wrong, there were some beautiful ensembles: Rooney Mara in Givenchy (I officially have a new girl crush), Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli, Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford, Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen (see below), to name a few.

However, as expected from these types of event, there was some fantastic photography which in a way, outshone both the outfits and the celebrities themselves. These three, of Rooney Mara, Lily Collins and Gwyneth Paltrow in a gorgeous Tom Ford dress, are particularly beautiful.

There's something about a great landscape 'behind-the-scenes' photo that is completely irresistible; the dresses and the celebrities all become irrelevant. Quite ironic when you consider that the subjects in each of these photo's are judged for the way they look and the way they dress instead of for the quality of their acting, no?

What are your thoughts on the Oscars? I don't even know who won what, and to be really honest, I'm not that bothered...
