Queen Latifah Graces the Red Carpet in Style

Queen Latifah might not have been in the limelight among the nominees, at The 2007 Academy Awards, however she did rule the red carpet in her ever impeccable style.

The Queen ruled all the curves on the red carpet last night, wearing a body hugging Carmen Marc Valvo gown. Sticking to classic, chic and elegant black, Queen Latifah definitely chose a winner dress. The horizontal, silky lines helped accentuate the right curves, whilst the V-neckline gave the dress a sexy yet still sophisticated twist. The wide sash below the bust worked wonders I think, as giving her full figured body more definition. I liked how the Queen kept it simple with accessories. She chose a matching, chic little black purse, which had just a hint of sparkle. The look was topped off with stylish earrings, a great bracelet, and a very sexy hairstyle.

The Queen reigns yet again.

Winning Curves at the Academy Awards

Besides being very happy that Whitaker walked away a winner last night at The Academy Awards, I saw even more happy to hear that our beloved Jennifer Hudson walked away with one of those little golden statuettes as well! Jennifer won Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her portrayal of Effie White in ‘Dreamgirls‘. In the movie, Effie White is a talented singer whose weight leads her manager and lover to relegate her to a back-up role in her singing group.

I am so so happy for Jennifer! And besides her winning, she looked absolutely stunning last night in a brown Oscar de la Renta gown. The chosen shades of brown blended in greatly with Jennifer and her make up, hairstyle and accessories topped everything off. Jennifer’s gown fit her like a dream, and the jewels from Fresh Leighton definitely were the cherries on the cake!

Well done Jennifer, you have proven that curves can definitely go a long was, and are worth gold!

Big Handsome Man Wins the Big Oscar

My hunch, or shall I say, my preference was right! Last night Forest Whitaker walked away with the little golden statue… The Oscar. Whitaker was names Best Actor in a leading role. I was rooting for Whitaker all the way! Although all the other men who were nominated are of course very talented, I was happy Whitaker walked away with the award as his performance as Idi Amin was impeccable.

I had previously watched several documentaries of Idi Amin, which also portrayed the actual man in various interviews and footage, and I thought Whitaker’s performance in ‘The Last King of Scotland‘ was spot on. Besides the movie being, of course, a very through provoking and soul shaking movie.

A little bit about the movie, ‘The Last King Of Scotland‘:

An idealistic Scottish doctor working in Uganda unexpectedly finds himself selected by the nation’s dictator, Idi Amin, to serve as his personal physician. As young Nicholas Garrigan succumbs to the seductive extravagances of palace life, he also becomes an eyewitness to the horrors and brutality of Amin’s regime.

Well done!

Taking at Look at Curves on The Oscars' Red Carpet

Kathy Bates at the OscarsWithout a doubt the eye of the world, or at least the media world and film buffs today, will be on The Academy Awards Ceremony… also known as The Oscars. A number of great films and artists are competing today, and I cannot wait to know for instance whether Forest Whitaker will walk away with the Best Actor in a Leading Role award, and whether Happy Feet will walk away with the Best Animated Feature Film award.

In the meantime I thought it would be a good idea to take a walk down memory lane and look at some of the best dressed curves that have graced the red carpet at The Oscars in the past few years.

Kathy Bates is one of my idols. She is am artist full of passion, grace and style. She wears her age with proud and sophistication, and she looks damn good! She was definitely look fabulous in this silk mousseline chiffon gown, designed by Eric Gaskins, which was paired up with a cranberry duchesse satin opera coat. Simply plus size and simply gorgeous.

Whoppi Goldberg at the OscarsPerhaps curvy might not necessarily be the first thing you think of when you mention Whoppi Goldberg. However in this rich and regal black ensemble the lady was rockin’ the show. A black satin gown, matched up with a velvet overcoat which was designed by Donna Karan, simply screamed out elegance and made Whoppi a curvy icon on the night.

A petite, but still very curvy, Imelda Staunton blew me away with her excellent performance in Vera Drake. That is one film I will remember for a very long time. I aImelda Staunton at the Oscarsm sure this stunning dress will remain unforgettable to Imelda as well! She strutted her stuff on the red carpet wearing a teal design by John Bright.

After having taken a look at three of the most unforgettable and best dressed plus size women to have graced the red carpet on The Oscars night, I’m very eager to watch this year’s event unfold, as well as see what fashion will grace the red carpet this year!
