Fashion Bloggers’ Favorite Topic: What Should the Jennifers Wear to the Oscars?

9014.jpg We’re talking Jennifer Aniston, Garner or Lopez. Take your pick. They’re all likely to show up on the red carpet. Let’s just hope Aniston doesn’t bump into her ex-husband, Brad Pitt. Anyhow. Back to the topic of conversation for many fashion bloggers, including Erin McKean (who by the way, writes specifically about dresses, not makeup, shoes or hair, but dresses everyday in just about every way on her blog). She and some of her readers think the Jennifer who’s married to Ben Affleck would look good in this gown. And the other Jennifer, who calls Marc Anthony husband, would look smashing in this.
This writer agrees on both counts. Nobody has figured out what the happily single Jennifer should wear just yet. But we had to ask Erin what she would wear to the Academy Awards. Erin, a lexicographer by profession, would sew (yes!) the dress on the right side of the above pattern. Here what she says:

“The whole question, I believe, is whether you try to wear something
unbelievably becoming (“bride” thinking) or whether you wear something very photogenic (“stunt” thinking). Of course I’d do it in a heavy silk (not satin) in an unusual color, like a bright green.
“Bride” thinking, of course, is also dependent on losing 20 pounds
and wearing the kind of undergarments that actually shrink your internal organs. For a stunt dress, I’d use the same kind of pattern, but I’d make fabric that was a design of little Oscar statuettes. :-) I might get sued by the Academy, but I’d also get in every photo spread!”

Heads Up Project Runway Wannabee Contestants

towerWin3.jpg ‘Tis difficult work to get onto “Project Runway” or at least that’s what Bravo Television would like you to believe. What if you don’t get onto the reality-show, what’s a budding fashion designer to do? Hang out a shingle like other entrepreneurs or work for Ralph Lauren as Jennifer Aniston aka Rachel did on “Friends”. No! You need to do something that’s attention-getting in a different way. Here’s a thought as you dig through your ever-growing stash of sewing patterns. Enter a contest such as this one which will take you straight to Paris for FREE if you win! Here’s the catch: you’ve got to use one of Simplicity’s Threads/Sew Stylish patterns. The collection’s a bit limited, shall we say and there are absolutely no men’s patterns! (Sorry, guys) This writer personally likes Simplicity 4033 (a coat), but even that might not be enough to get her to fire up her Viking Husqvarna 730 to partake in a great adventure that could win her a trip to see the Eiffel Tower up close and personal.
