Dresses to Drool Over

I'm no fashion expert but now and then I see really GAWJUSSS dresses on the red carpet and I know not what to do except wish I was blond and fair so I could even look a quarter as amazing as these actresses...

Rachel McAdams and Cameron Diaz

Can you say Oscar's? One of my favourite times of the year! Next to the Grammy and Emmy Awards... Rachel McAdams' colouring goes so well with her watercolor dress and Cameron's looking less like a train wreck this year... I AM SO MEAN. Her golden dress is very pretty but I'm not so sure I like her hair... Do blondes look good in everything?! Sheesh. *throws hands up in frustration*

Kristen Stewart and Abbie Cornish

Above are the darker dresses I rather liked as seen on Kristen Stewart (who looks like she feels good about herself today! Pat yourself on the back because you should!) and Abbie Cornish who looks the best I've seen her in...ever. I thought all four of these ladies owned the carpet at Oscar's. Elizabeth Banks looked amazing too but I lost the photo in my extensive photo stash. Heh.

Other events...

Josh Duhamel/Fergie and Seal/Heidi Klum

These photos of the couples above were from an earlier event, the Golden Globes, meant to post them earlier but I was hesitant because Vanessa just doesn't do fashion! Anyway, it was raining, which accounts for the umbrellas and close proximity (call me an old-fashioned crone, I don't care!!) but I felt that it sort of romanticized the event.

This is one of my all-time favourite red carpet dresses on pre-grunge phase Dakota Fanning! Taken during the premiere of her movie Push a year or so ago...

I know I don't go for edgy when I like something, I go for girly dresses that are easy on the eyes yet still hold a whiff sophistication. These are the kinds of dresses I would kill for. Yet, I LOVE the loud dresses that Katy Perry wears. Not too crazy but kooky enough to garner people's interest.

I should really get some sleep now in case my haze of sleepiness has clouded my sense of better judgment of Katy Perry. Going shopping tomorrow!!! (Maybe my upcoming course dinner spurred on this post, hmmm... Haven't decided what to wear yet...)

"Cameron's looking less like a train wreck this year... I AM SO MEAN." - fashion is mean and I love it... LOL!

I think I'm just not sarcastic enough for fashion... Sandra's dress was really glitzy, it screams OSCARS! I liked her shiny hair...

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...
Alias bin Mati
Injin A/L Bot (changed his name already...)
Penus (Oh dear.)
Labiah binti Kondong

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)

I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.

3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
