Lupita Nyong’o: Pretty In Prada At The Oscars

Lupita Nyong’o at the 2014 Oscars

The Oscars are on TV. Marcy and Cynthia are sound asleep. Cynthia is snoring. Marcy is breathing like Darth Vader.  Suddenly a Texas accent cuts through the living room – 

“Alright Alright Alright”

Cynthia and Marcy bolt upright and scream in unison – 


Cynthia:  WHOSAT!?

They see Matthew McConaughey on the TV accepting his Oscar. They sink back into the sofa, relieved. They yawn.

Marcy:  I’m so bored.

Cynthia:  Well, do you want to look at the Oscar dresses again?

Marcy:  I only liked Lupita Nyong’o.

Cynthia:  Me too! Tonight’s red carpet was a sea of sparkly nude fairy princess dresses and surprisingly messy hair-do’s. Everyone looked like they belonged at a Las Vegas show. Only Lupita Nyong’o looked as though she really was a princess in her sky blue Prada gown with a headband and gorgeous red lips.

Marcy (in love):  She’s so pretty and elegant. Do you think she’d let me be her kitty?

Cynthia:  Hey! What about me?

Marcy looks at Lupita and sees Cinderella at the Ball. She then looks at Cynthia and sees Cinderella in an ugly outfit with broom dustbuster in hand.

Marcy:  Obviously your fairy godmother is on strike. You can call me if she comes back.

    I loved this dress too! Lupita is so beautiful, I could just stare at her all day long.

    It was a beautiful dress but am I the only one who was worried about a malfunction? It looked as if the straps could slide off the shoulder.

      Oh, I am sure they used body tape to keep it up.

    I agree. It was the only dress I really liked all night. I was bummed. Everybody did such safe boring choices. There was no fun. No big glamour. It was a let down.

    Lupita stole the show. Good for her!

    Maybe next year, the other ladies will do it right!

      I wonder if there are just too many awards shows now and that's why it's no longer spectacular. Everyone is tired out and all the pretty dresses have been worn to previous shows. Maybe?

    Dang Marcy, that's ugly! Some kitties don't deserve good owners! I have to agree though…her dress is absolutely, drop dead gorgeous and it looks like it has it's own wind machine. My mom even called to talk about her dress…she's beautiful and everything she wears pops against her skin tone!

      Oops – looks like I made Marcy go too far. It is just a running theme on the blog that Marcy always wants to be someone's kitty. Usually I tell her a reason why that would never work but this time I didn't. I'll make her friendlier. Don't want bad vibes on the blog. 🙂

      This dress was incredible and the way she wore it was even more fantastic. Magical actually. She and her stylists should get an award because really, there was no one else on that red carpet who looked as beautiful as she did. Ha ha – I am agreeing with you agreeing with me. LOL

      No…don't change anything…I love your conversations! What I wrote came out wrong :). My kitties always give me that "what the heck are you doing" look, so I know what you are talking about. 🙂
