Nuns on the Carpet: Gwyneth Paltrow and Shailene Woodley Oscars 2012


A couple more Oscars posts I think and then we’ll get back to talking about knitting.

What was with all the nuns on the Oscars red carpet? Are they doing a remake of the Sound of Music or something?


Gwyneth went all Mother Superior on us – an utterly gorgeous dress though she’s not a good enough actress to make the born again virgin stuff convincing.

While Shailene Woodley turned up as the demure young penitent.


Gloriously, and rather randomly there was even a real nun walking the carpet.  Mother Dolores is a former co-star of Elvis’ who now stars in a documentary about her life as a nun.

And speaking of the Sound of Music there were huge cheers at our Oscar party when Captain von Trapp FINALLY received his Oscar – a moment spoiled only by his refusal to lead the auditorium in a rousing chorus of ‘Edelweiss’.

The Nuns look gorgeous in the red carpet. I haven't seen a Nun who are walking in the red carpet before. I think it is not advisable to wear a costume of a Nun in prestigious events for us to show a simple respect to them.

In my own point of view, it should be advised to the celebrities not to wear the dress of a Nun because it is disrespectful. I have seen true Nuns walking in the red carpet who made wonderful achievements.
