Without 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.
Perhaps 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 am 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!
