Oscars!!

Okay, so I’ve never watched the Oscars before last night. I never used to be into formal wear until relatively recently, so I didn’t really think it was interesting. But this year, I thought I’d be a good little fashionista and watch them, and comment on the hits and misses of the night for you, my adoring public (Population: 0, probably. It’s okay, I still love you anyway). In general, the Oscars were a lot more interesting and entertaining than I thought they’d be, but that’s probably partly due to Ellen DeGeneres being a superb host. She probably got the most laughs out of the Oscar audience that I’ve ever seen.

On the red carpet, the first person I saw was Leonardo DiCaprio. I thought he looked absolutely gorgeous in his Armani tuxedo, and I finally, finally see what everyone else saw in him way back in the days of Titanic and Romeo + Juliet. I used to think he was hideous back then, but now that he looks like a man… well, let’s just say that this is a Leo that I wouldn’t mind seeing more of. On another note, why wasn’t Blood Diamond nominated for Best Picture? I was thoroughly confused about that. Drop some science if you’ve got any idea, cuz I sure as hell don’t.

Cate Blanchett was the next to catch my eye. What can I say about her? She’s absolutely stunning.

This gorgeous gun-metal gray Armani Prive gown makes her look like an otherworldly creature. I usually love her dress choices, so I wasn’t surprised that she aced this red carpet look. She definitely gets the Frock Yeah! award for the night, hands down. Apparently in her next movie she’ll be playing Bob Dylan. Can’t wait to see what she looks like as a man.

New Kid on the Block

Well this is my first post, and I thought I’d introduce myself to everyone. My pen name is The Frocker, and I’m a 20 year old student in college in the Northeast. I’ve been interested in fashion since I got to high school, dabbling in costume design (good old drama class…those were the days), but I gave up on those dreams pretty quickly since I am an awful artist, but who knows where the future will take me…

Anyway, the first fashion magazine I ever picked up was an issue of Vogue from my local library. I spent two hours poring over that magazine — the glossy pages just sucked me in. Fast forwarding a couple of years, I’m still obsessed with magazines, but I think writing in a blog is as close as I’ll get to writing for a magazine, and that’s actually fine by me.

The idea of starting my own blog really got into my head when I went to London for a semester. I was at a super artsy school which was completely different from the school I go to in the States, and being surrounded by all these superbly creative people really impacted me, my style — even the way I speak!

I hope you’ll like my blog and I’d love comments, opinions, suggestions, ideas — anything! I’m not pretending to be a fashion expert; these are just my opinions. So don’t hesitate to drop me a line and speak your mind, even if you disagree with me. Before I forget, I’d like to thank the girls at I Am Fashion for answering my questions about starting up a blog. Check out their blog, they’re awesomeness personified. And they’re utter sweethearts! I also have to thank my good friend G for helping me with the ideas for this blog — you rock (but you already knew that)!

Anyway, that’s enough blah-blah-blah. On with the clothes!
