Jenny's Mouthwash: The Gowns! Oscars Weekend

I don't know about you, but I am incredibly excited about the Oscars this weekend. I look forward to the awards show every year.

There is something about the red carpet, glamorous gowns, and golden statues which really bring out the kid in me. I feel like a little girl all over again, believing in fairy-tales and wishing the impossible was possible.

I think the fashion is my favorite part. So, in honor of the Oscars this weekend, I have decided to share some of my favorite gowns which have graced the red carpet at past Academy Award ceremonies. And I'm not talking the 90s here.

I hope you enjoy them:


Bette Davis, 1938





Loretta Young, 1947


Marilyn Monroe, 1951


Audrey Hepburn, 1954


Grace Kelly, 1955


Elizabeth Taylor, 1960


Sophia Loren, 1961


Faye Dunaway, 1968



Angelica Huston, 1976



Jane Fonda, 1979


Which one is your favorite?

Grace Kelly. That woman could have worn a garbage bag to the Oscars and steal the show! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Marilyn and Audrey, of course! I only look forward to the red carpet. I can't stand to watch the awards. I find them to be very boring during the parts between the important stuff. They should just announce best actress/actor/movie/etc. all at once. I don't care about lighting!

I have never seen Angelica Houston young w/ Jack Nicholson!! She was so pretty!! I think Sophia Loren rocked it even tho she was in feathers! =)

oh I have always loved that audrey hepburn dress- I think I always like the dresses most which look like ones that I might wear or might fit my body- I'm not voluptuous at all so I don't get too excited about the hourglass ruffly dresses as much. I can't wait to see what the actors wear tomorrow!

Why even pretend it's about anything but the clothes. How many people would watch if everybody just wore business casual?

Love looking back at some of these amazing gowns. Is it me or is this more interesting than watching anyone walk down the red carpet today?

I can't seem to decide if Monroe or Hepburn is my favorite. They're both gorgeous!
