Oscars? No, it's the Oscar Weenies!!

Noted as the first lover of Dachshunds, Queen Victoria 

Forget the Oscars. Seriously, I missed them all together now that I'm 6 hours ahead––  Which is odd, because really I felt 6 hours behind–– so I didn't get the chance to be disappointed (again) in a failed attempt to humor an audience that has seen it all and done it all.  You would really have to change the format.  But why do that, when you have other venues for that sort of thing. Oscars is what it is. And we have to suffer through it, because, ultimately we love it.

So, instead I bring you my Oscar moments for the most famous, weeniers and their famous owners.  Starting with my famous weenier, Tiki:

the proud and regal Lady Tiki - in Berlin

Artists and their lovable Doxies.

Screen sirens from the 30's-50's

Whose sexier...?

I did miss my favorite part of the oscars, the ladies in their dresses. But in recapping this morning, I've made my own list of my top favorite ladies and their dresses...

Starting with the two best in red/magenta:

Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli.  She looks amazing! Love red hair with this color red!

Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton. It's hard to rock a strapless and she does it amazingly.
She's sexy, but somehow still demur.

Almost tragic, but it works...

Glenn Close in Zac Posen.   Normally I wouldn't suggest all green structured in satin. It can look like a mother of the bride, or something out of a period film.  Or possibly, let's make a dress out of these curtains.
But, first off all, how amazing does Glenn rock it.  Curves and all.
And the jacket updates the Mae West quality of the gown.  I give it 4 stars.

Heavenly white...

Rooney Mara in Givency Haute Courture.  I was like... who is this?  I don't know who this person is.  Then duh, it hit me. She is the one and only sexy, punked out actress who portrayed Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo!
Wow. And this 30's style gown looks amazing on her.   

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford.   Whatever you might say, she knows how to wear clothes.
And this white dress is the very opposite of the dress Rooney is wearing, but equally glamourous. Where Rooney is a gliding Carole Lombard, Gwyneth is slick Grace Kelley, 

And now for the va va boom...

Alexandra Edenbourough with her husband, Gary Oldman.  Okay, I don't know who she is wearing, but it fits her perfectly.  I want to be her actually.  I've seen pictures of her before, and I thought she was pretty, but here, she really looks like 70's siren a la Sharon Tate, but in an italian sort of way.  

Angelina Jolie in black velvet Atelier Versace.   Listen she got a lot of flack and praise for this move. But seriously, she gets criticized so much for being boring at events, I think this is hysterical.  I think I'd do the same if I looked like here.  She really enjoyed herself with her cheeky provocative side, flashing her long leg in that thigh-high slit.

And My Oscar Weenier Award goes out to "My Favorite Couple":

Melanie Griffith in YSL with Antonio Banderas.
 "What the 'F'?" you say, drool falling out of your mouth that is hanging so wide open.  "Are you off your rocker?  Favorite couple?? What are they feeding you over there in Hamburg?"

Yes. And one reason only.  They really, honestly, look like they LIKE each other. Love, like, like love.

Most of these couples you look at you just can't tell what their story is.  Is it convenient. Is it political. Will their relationship help their career.   Or is one protecting the other because they are gay.

Not Melanie and Antonio.   They have endured. They are quirky. There were sexy, and sometimes still are in a strange way.  But mostly, he looks at him adoringly, and vice versa.

So there.  And there you have it. From Tiki to Oscars.  You have your Oscar Weeniers.
