Oscar Style 2012: Melissa McCarthy Hit or Miss

By  | 

The pastel  rose colored dress with the  rhinestones at the  collar and waist was soft and feminine but somewhat understated .  The floor length gown was lovely but I was hoping she would bring the full glamor to the Oscars. While she did look beautiful  I was hoping that Melissa would really pull out the stops and go for true movie magic and old fashioned sexiness. I would give this dress a B+.

Brie Stoll is a writer, she has been writing for the last 28 years and has been published in several magazines and poetry reviews under her various nom de plumes. Her first published story “The Goddess” was featured as a storyline in the movie “Relax its just sex”. She has worked behind the scenes as a ghost for several writers. In 2010 she returned to the vocation that she loves with her blog , and is currently working on her first mystery Novel .

    I love this! I do wish she’d worn it in a color, though.

    Miss! Hate to say it. She looks better in bolder colors.

    Me personally wouldnt wear the dress, but it is all about what she likes. I think the dress looks fine on her. She looked beautiful and confindent, that is all that matters…

    Too safe, and not sure the color is all that great

    Miss, unfortunately. I love Melissa but the dress was just not up to par. The color wasn’t vibrant enough for her personality and it really just seemed designed to distract us from her curves, rather than honor them. Now Octavia Spencer was another story – her dress was AMAZING!

    too much “gown” for her, and I agree about the color, it was pretty, but did not match her skin tone too well, very “bland” & “pale”.

    I really like her but it’s a miss for me, makes her look to frumpy.

    I think she is a beautiful woman but this dress did nothing for her…I would say miss!

    I find the dress awful… too much pleats, too much ornaments, too much floating sleeves, too pale and too long… I does not suit her at all… and she doesn’t seem at ease with this outfit… she would have been amazing choosing something more simple and fit…
