After enjoying the movies and now the awards show, what’s left for us, Oscars viewers out there to do? Reminisce the trends and the highlights of the event! One of the things I noticed was a new hairdo!

For viewers attention, some ladies in attendance may have a hard time enjoying the over 3 hours long Oscars theater show because of their outfits!
