Ryan Seacrest asking random and awkward questions does not a pre-show make. It's a simple formula...
Ryan: "Sandra you are looking fabulous tonight, as always. What are you wearing?"
Sandra: "Thank you Ryan. This is Marchesa."
Ryan: "Well done. The gold dress screams Oscar winner. What are you most looking forward to tonight?"
Sandra: "Eating a hamburger. I haven't starved all day but I am starving."
Ryan: "Best of luck, we are cheering for you."
Simple, easy, quick. Someone bring back Isaac Mizrahi, he made it fun and interesting.
As for the actual awards show, I was sadly disappointed, it felt a little bit stuffy even when it was trying to be funny.
Ok, now onto the important stuff, Fashion! There were so many safe dress choices. Not a lot of wow but several that were pretty, perfectly chosen and lovely. Blue and blush were popular, as were statement earrings with bare necks and shoulders.
