As Oscar Winning Actresses Excel A Few Faux Pas Stand Out
This year the trend continued with two obvious additions. There were teen-aged actress presenters who looked healthy with few exceptions, although their dresses were less than flattering. And more importantly on stage were mature women with full bodies who now showed off muscular arms, shoulders, and necks - a result no doubt of some serious weight lifting. The emaciated look of half-starved and emotionally unhappy youth has been abandoned in favor of health and vigor and with it a much more mature and gracious appearance (delete that for a rather immature acceptance speech for Monique, an otherwise talented actress).
So with all due praise now rendered, it is time for me to give out awards for the worst appearing actress and her runner-up. In both cases the award is given for poor choices and in spite of the fact that I have very high regard for the social sophistication of both actresses.
The worst-face runner up clearly goes to Sarah Jessica Parker who mangled her skin and had the most peculiar hues I have seen on such a show. I don’t know if she sprayed herself with self-tanning solution or pickled her face in the sun but either way the color, texture, and hue of her face was not complementary. Also, her smile seemed constrained, though her personality was not, and could that have been the result of minor surgery or botox? I simply do not know. I continue to admire her work both in front of and behind the camera, yet she will grow drearily old before her time if she continues to hide behind poorly conceived cosmetic masks.
The winner of the worst face on Oscar night goes to Sandra Bullock who not only lost weight and aged her face but compounded it by framing her face with long hair making her face look even less attractive. She alluded to this in the red-carpet interview in which she said she will hurry to devour a hamburger and fries as soon as the event was over.
For me, this was the healthiest Oscar ever and the maturity, beauty, and grace of the female participants has not been equaled. The lessons for all of us are: a healthy and youthful face cannot be long and narrow; skinny adults look old; and long hair framing the face of an adult adds 10 years to appearance. There are now a panoply of treatments to produce a healthy and youthful face and I will address them next week. However, they all start with a healthy diet and a healthy attitude toward body shape.
