2013 Oscars Fashion Police: Hosted by a Mom and a Three-Year-Old

Now that my daughter is three, she has opinions on pretty much everything — from what she wears to the songs I’m allowed to sing (not many).  So I thought I would collect her opinions on something that really matters:  what the stars wore to the Oscars.  Our conversations went something like this:

Naomi Watts in Armani Prive

ME:  Oh, wow.  She looks stunning.

THREE-YEAR-OLD:  Not good.

ME: What?  Why?

THREE-YEAR-OLD:  She looks like a robot!  (Falls into fit of giggles.)

Quvenzhane Wallis in Armani Prive

ME:  Doesn’t she look cute?

THREE-YEAR-OLD:  (A MOMENT OF INTENSE SCRUTINY, THEN:)  Can I have her purse?

ME:  You already have SO MANY purses!

THREE-YEAR-OLD:  But they’re getting old.

(True story.)

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

THREE-YEAR-OLD:  A princess dress!  You and me are princesses, Mom.  You need more princess dresses.

ME:  Where would I wear them?

THREE-YEAR-OLD:  Um…the park.

Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen

ME:  I’m not a fan of that neckline.  And a tiara on a 40-something woman?  No.

THREE-YEAR-OLD:  Is that her dad?

Helena Bonham Carter in Vivienne Westwood

ME:  Honestly, that’s not all that bad.  At least she’s always entertaining.

THREE-YEAR-OLD:  She’s silly!

Bradley Cooper in Tom Ford

ME:  That hair and that beard — UGH!  He’s ruining it for me.

THREE-YEAR-OLD:  Ru-ing what, Mom?

ME:  Never mind.
