The Classic Red Lips

Best Dressed: Academy Awards Edition

Let me start off by saying that there were a lot of beautifully dressed people at the Academy Awards. It was extremely hard to make this list. The majority of the celebrities brought their “A” game. However, here are my top 10 favorites from the special night, and this is in no particular order.
Robin Roberts

Robin Roberts: She looked simply amazing and radiant. I absolutely loved her dress, and blue accessories. This color is very rich, and deep. This was a great choice!

Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek: The neck piece on this dress is gorgeous. It definitely brought this otherwise simple dress to the next level. She looked very elegant.

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Halle Berry: It should be no surprise that Halle is on this list. Her dress was on point! I’m in love with this design! It was very unique, and also exuded a lot of sexiness.

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Kelly Rowland: Kelly is having some year. Every time she hits the stage or carpet, she is dressed to impress. She looked wonderful.

Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts: She killed this dress. I am a fan of the one sleeve look. It was well-fitting, and very different compared to the other dresses.

J Hud

Jennifer Hudson: J Hud’s complete look was amazing; everything worked together.She’s worked the bang and long tresses. She looked beautiful!

Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda: Jane Fonda definitely put some of her young counterparts to shame. The yellow fits her very well, and made her a standout. She looked absolutely stunning!

Stacy Kiebler

Stacy Kiebler: Kiebler’s entire look is awesome. I loved her dress, and her old-school hairstyle. The black accent belt really brought this dress together.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba: Alba’s look screamed classy and elegant. She was simply beautiful in this coral dress. The busy necklace and clutch definitely completed the look without offsetting anything.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez: While her dress may not have been as glamorous as the other guests, I must admit that I really liked her choice. I absolutely loved the design on the upper part of the dress, and I liked how the tulle was cut asymmetrical.

Although, she didn’t make the official list, I think FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, looked beautiful! It was a nice surprise to see that she was an award presenter.

Now, I’d have to say that my least favorite person of the night was Anne Hathaway. She is so boring! O-M-Gee!

Who were some of your favorites?

 

Jackson’s Bistro [Tampa]

This is my new favorite restaurant in the Tampa Bay area! I went here for the first time on my birthday. It was amazing! I absolutely loved it.

Jackson’s Bistro is located in Harbor Island, right on the water. Needless to say, the atmosphere was relaxing and the views were beautiful. Luckily for me there was outside seating! It was really nice outside, so this was the perfect arrangement. The outside seating is arranged like a waterside lounge. It was very sexy and suave. It’s definitely an upscale restaurant.

The server was really nice. He was attentive, and very helpful. He was able to provide recommendations, and answer all of our questions. Our table was clear of dirty dishes, and our glasses remained full.

I ordered the Brick Chicken dinner. It was a 12 oz. soy marinated airline chicken breast grilled under a brick, served with garlic green beans, truffle shoestring fries, and tomato demi sauce. The chicken was so good. It was juicy and marinated just right! Every bite was just as good as the last. The green beans were cooked perfectly. They were neither too soft nor hard; they had the perfect consistency. I was a little taken a back by the fact that this meal was served with fries. However, I won’t complain because the truffle shoestring fries were delicious! Parmesan cheese was added, and that just made my day! I wasn’t a big fan of the tomato demi sauce. I thought it was going to be more like a BBQ sauce, but it reminded me of A1 steak sauce. I also ordered a side salad, it was a good size and priced quite nicely. I also tasted a sushi roll, which was really good and fresh. I’d like to go back for their sushi, especially since this is something they’re known for.

The first sentence should have given you a hint as to whether or not I would recommend this restaurant because I certainly would. It’s perfect for a date, or to celebrate a special occasion.
