The Best and Worst Looks from the Oscars Red Carpet!

The stars rocked it on the Red Carpet for the Oscars last night. Both the Ladies and the Men did quite well, but of course there were a few fashion disasters.

White and Nudes were popular for the night.

Gina Rodriguez’s dress and how she wore it is what the Oscars are all about! Plunged neckline, sleek ponytail and a dress that dazzled in the right way for her to present under the lights on the Oscars stage.

Nude gone Wrong – Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Nobody should ever go on the Red Carpet with what looks like Chicken pox!

A few stars wore black, but hardly any of them got it right. Who let St. Vincent out of her bat cave?

Black gone Wrong or Right?

I am on the fence for Taraji P. Henson in Vera Wang. This is a woman I love to see on the Red carpet. This dress on anyone else would make the Black gone wrong list, but Taraji wears the dress, the dress doesn’t wear her.

Colourful Surprises!

I love Viola Davis, but I don’t think she was Pretty in Pink yesterday. I don’t think the Yellow worked out for Greta Gerwig either. But Betty Gabriel, the help from ‘Get out’ rocked her colourful dress. She looked beautiful.

Stars who usually get it right!

Sandra Bullock who was in Louis Vuitton, Lupita Nyong’o who actually looked like an Oscar in Versace and Octavia Spencer are usually a pleasure to see. Well done ladies!

Other Well Dressed Ladies

Let’s not forget the Men! It seems like Common can do no wrong on the Red Carpet. No surprises either for Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman. Martin McDonagh looked sleek in All Black Burberry. Young, Timothée Chalamet was a Best Dressed Nominee for me in All White. Jordan Peele, writer and Director of ‘Get Out’ had a big night. He was the first Black male to win Best Original Screenplay.

Worst Dressed Men 

Of course there were a few fashion disappointments for the men. Adam Rippon was dressed for the wrong kind of party and Darrel Britt-Gibson looked like a Pink Panther.

Worst Dressed Ladies

For the ladies, Whoopi we love you but you looked like a peacock about to take flight. Others looked like they were draped, literally like curtains. Salma Hayak added chandelier. Emma Stone looked as if she was going to a Pajama party and Bianca Blanco looked nice but I don’t think the dress was appropriate for the Oscars as it left little for the imagination.

THE Worst Dressed Lady

Where was Haley Bennett going?! The Oscars are not in Hawaii.

Best Dressed Male

For Suga, Best Dressed Male hands-down went to Armie Hammer in Armani. He rocked his red velvet from head to toe. Bravo!

Best Dressed Ladies

Other than Gina Rodriguez mentioned earlier, these ladies were Best Dressed Nominees! Hard to choose a winner. Jane Fonda was stunning in 44 Francois Premier. Mary J. Blige who acted in Mudbound looked absolutely chic in  Versace. Allison Janney who played the Mother in ‘Get Out’ was the best Lady in Red. Nicole Kidman was fabulous in Armani Privé and definitely the Best in Blue.

Who Stole the Red Carpet at the Oscars 2017?!

Suga found it easy to narrow down the winners for the Men – Andrew Garfield and Mahershala Ali who looked sharp on the Red Carpet! What are these dapper men featured in?

Check out Andrew in Hacksaw Ridge. It’s a good one. I saw Andrew play a War hero without using a gun in the war. Interesting angle. Good movie directed by Mel Gibson.

Mahershali Ali is featured in the controversial, Moonlight.


Quite a few ladies took it to the Red Carpet but the winners for Suga were Karlie Kloss (model) and Viola Davis who won her first Oscar for Fences that also features Denzel Washington.


Special mention goes to the following ladies:


Lastly, we cannot forget two of our favourite couples with the ladies looking lovely post pregnancy – Justin Timberlake with Jessica Biel (L) and John Legend with Chriss Tiegan (R).

What was going on with the Fashion on the Red Carpet of the VMAs last night?!

Horrendous to say the least. Suga still can’t declare a Best Dressed or even narrow down the Worst Dressed. There were so many violations of Fashion. 

Joan Rivers is rolling over in her grave and Fashion Police on E! is going to have a field day later.

Well if you missed it, here you go!

What were they thinking?! There are a lot of featherless birds out there.

The Men were not much better either. Will Smith, please help your son.

Two did not make one for those that came in pairs. It was obvious Kim K didn’t even finish drying her hair. Blue Ivy looked cute but was spending 11k on that dress really necessary? I’m sure similar could be found in a costume store.

Although Nicki could hardly walk in her dress and I’m still not sure about Cassie, thanks to the ladies who did something right!

Congratulations to the lady of the night, Rihanna, whose last look was beautiful. I’m sure it wasn’t just me who thought Drake was going to propose while he presented the VMAs Vanguard award to her last night, proclaiming he has been in love with Rihanna from he was 22. Great speech.

Suga’s Best Dressed Ladies for the Oscars 2016


Charlize Theron looked refreshingly elegant as usual in Dior Haute Couture.

Kerry Washington was unique in Versace, but hey, she could look good in a garbage bag.


Then there was Olivia Wilde, who looked bold and took the plunge in Valentino. The back of the dress was EVERYTHING as Kelly Osbourne would say on E! See if Suga was right on E!’s Fashion Police tonight!




Restaurant Week Jamaica Begins Today! Where to dress up and go to!

The Cost of Restaurants in the Epicurean category is $4300JMD and includes an appetizer, salad, main course and dessert. Beverage, GCT and gratuity are additional, so it works out to about $6000JMD per person.

For Kingston, both Rojo Restaurant at Spanish Court Hotel and The Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel are good choices. Rojo may be more suited for a date or party of 4. While Terra Nova may suit bigger parties such as a family affair or dinner/lunch with the coworkers.

Rojo is known to have excellent service and a lovely ambience. Their menu for Restaurant week has finally changed as well. The Pan Seared Shrimp and Lobster with a Herbed Scotch Bonnet Cocktail Sauce and Mixed Greens or Seafood Chowder Flavourful Soup with Calamari, Snapper, Shrimp and Mussels, garnished with Scallion looks great for the Appetizer and Soup.

For the main, the Chicken Rojo with Chicken Breast filled with Ham, Sweet Pepper, Mozzarella & Cheddar Cheese, covered with Seasoned Breadcrumbs then pan-fried, served with a Rose Sauce and Mashed Potatoes looks exciting as well as the Seafood Linguini with Shrimp, Calamari, Snapper & Mussels sautéed in Fresh Garlic, Herbs and a Squeeze of Lemon, all finished in a Basil Pesto Sauce, topped with Parmesan Cheese.

For dessert, their Crème Brulee is usually good.

Terra Nova’s menu seems to have a little more variety and if you are a Lamb or Pork Loin lover, they usually excel with those dishes. Spicily seasoned Salmon cakes served with a Jalapeno Slaw should be a good starter and their White Chocolate Cheesecake with fresh Berry Compote, a delicious conclusion.

Now, where to go out of town? Round Hill Hotel and Villas’ menu seems to lack variety. I doubt persons would be looking forward to Fried Chicken or Fish and Grits for an Epicurean experience. So Suga will be choosing Marguerites Seafood by the Sea in Montego Bay for Epicurean this year! It will be an out of town experience with a salivating menu. I am looking forward to the Boston Beggars Purse Appetizer with Crisp wontons filled with creamy cheese and Jerk chicken breast with Asian slaw followed by their Pan seared scallops for the entrée that will include Smoked bacon and more. Their menu on the website is different from the one published so that may need some clarification because the menu online looks like quite the gourmet affair!

Look forward to dressing up and going to these restaurants. That is part of the fun about this category. Gentlemen, button up shirts are a must and no sneakers. Ladies you can still show a little skin and be classy. Flash back Friday to my style in the FLAIR last Monday!
