Jason Momoa’s pink Fendi scrunchie at the Oscars was sort of awesome


Jason Momoa, Lisa Bonet attends The 91st Annual Academy Awards Arrivals in Los Angeles

Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet attended the Oscars together because he was a presenter. They wore his-and-hers Fendi, part of Karl Lagerfeld’s last collection with Fendi. That alone would make it memorable, but I genuinely loved that they MATCHED and both wore Millennial Pink. It felt like everyone on Twitter was talking about his scrunchie like it was a bad thing but I LOVED it. We actually got a promotional email about it – the scrunchie that Jason wore on his wrist was actually Fendi (for real) but Target wants you to know that they’re selling a version of the Jason Momoa pink scrunchie for $6.99. In Target stores now! Also: Lisa’s gown could have been so much better, right?

Queen Latifah in Mike Costello. I really like this? Pretty, conservative, flattering, totally appropriate for an Oscar presenter.

91st Oscars 2019 Arrivals

There were a lot of conversations coming into this year’s Oscars about how unmemorable last year’s acting winners were. It’s true for the most part, although I maintain that Allison Janney deserved her Oscar, and that she won her Oscar for decades of outstanding film and TV work. Allison returned this year as a presenter and she chose this simple Pamela Rolland gown. Classic, lovely.

    The matching pink outfits arent my favorite, but they were kind of fun and something different for the red carpet, so I ultimately liked them.

    LOVED both allison janney and Queen Latifah. Gorgeous, chic, but not boring.

  2. Va Va Kaboom says:

    Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa are the sexist couple I’ve ever seen. They can wear matching pink outfits and absolutely rock the look. I can’t think of anyone else off the top of my head who could pull off either outfit as well, let alone if their partner wore the matching one.

    • WingKingdom says:

      I fully agree. I love photos of these two. They’re an awesome couple and their fashion is always quirky.

    • josephine says:

      I love them together but she’s been so flat in appearances with him. She is a gorgeous human being and I feel like her dresses rarely suit her. Maybe she’s just trying to let him be in the spotlight but I feel like she’s someone who could really bring a spectacular look and she’s rarely better than so-so these days.

      • Lithe says:

        I get the sense that she’s not trying to make his moment be about her.

      • Dee says:

        Agreed. She seemed to be letting him shine. And I adored her dress and always think she is the most gorgeous style icon (her Cosby Year’s were soooo amazing to us in high school).

      • Bella Bella says:

        Right now it really seems like she is taking a backseat. Her dress sucked. When his scrunchy is generating more talk than her dress, you know something’s wrong, because that woman is beautiful. She seemed invisible yesterday.

  3. RoyalBlue says:

    I noticed quite a bit of pink outfits on the carpet and wondered if it was a coordinated thing. Love that couple, they rocked the pink, and Jason clearly adores Lisa. They always interest me because of the age difference.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    I really like Allison’s whole look, and was happy to see Queen Latifah- she needs to be in more stuff!
    I don’t love her dress, but Lisa is so pretty.

  5. BaeBae says:

    Can we please discuss Ashley Graham asking Jason Momoa if she can do a tribal yell/dance?! Of course Lisa was like wtfff NO. It was so disrespectful! This is not something that should done on call as if POC are here to perform for white folks 🤦🏽‍♀️

    • Darla says:

      I saw something about this on twitter, but I didn’t see it. I would love to see Lisa’s reaction.

    • Lala11_7 says:

      I was AGHAST at Ashley…seriously…you been married to a Black man for YEARS…and you STILL ain’t picked up on nuances about stuff like that?

      CHILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Renee2 says:

        This exactly!!!! This was my first thought upon reading this and I am getting even angrier when I think about it. WTF is wrong with people??? I don’t know why I expected more from her.

    • Ennie says:

      Hahaha she shut her down so quickly! There was a tweet that said: we ain’t got time for this —- it! Of course she did not say that but… I watched it with the sound iff and It was soooo cringey!
      Love these 2 together , BTW.

    • Kerfuffle says:

      Ashley Graham was so bad on that carpet. The forced, overly-familiar “hey girlfriend” style was terrible. This part with Jason Momoa was like everything I disliked about her performance distilled into one moment.

    • Renee says:

      Wait….she did what??? I didn’t see it. I am at a loss for words…..

  6. Nala says:

    Can someone please explain why everyone obsessed with this man? I don’t see it.

    Everytime I see him I feel like he needs to take a shower.

    • Darla says:

      LOL On every Momoa thread someone just has to say he looks like he needs a shower.

      I honestly find this a borderline thing to say. Like what? Is it because his hair is long? Or something else?

      • LT says:

        No, it’s because his hair looks greasy. My younger adolescent son (who is a POC, for what it’s worth) has long hair (it was down his back until Saturday) and I tell him if he’s going to wear it long, he has to take care of it. Stringy hair doesn’t look good on anyone! A good shampoo, conditioner, and brush would help Momoa.

        I did love the pink – I like men in pink in general and he and Lisa look great.

      • Ali says:

        It’s long and messy and looks either wet or greasy or too much product. It’s not greasy at the roots but I would not wear my hair that way for a work event, never mind the Oscars

      • Darla says:

        I see. I dont think his hair looks dirty but okay thanks for explaining.

      • Nala says:

        It’s both his hair and his beard. It’s a mess

    • Lithe says:

      LOL—I dunno. Maybe I’m beguiled because he and Lisa radiate so much love and tenderness towards each other? Because anyone else would just look grungy to me.

    • Beth says:

      I don’t understand the obsession either. He always looks filthy, like he hasn’t showered and hasn’t washed or combed his tangled, greasy hair in months. Nothing sexy about him in my opinion, but everyone has their own opinion

      • Nala says:

        Thank you BETH! That’s exactly how I feel when I see him.

        He looks kinda gross. And I saw pictures from the Vanity Fair After party. He took off his shirt and kept the pink blazer. Wtf

  7. Avamae says:

    Lisa’s dress is clearly a reference to Aquaman.
    Look it is a goldenrose fishing net.
    The King of the Oceans found it for his Queen!

    Love them both, they are both adorable, no matter their clothes or scrunchies.

  8. Andrea says:

    He is so hot. I watched a crappy movie on Netflix just to look at him. He is beautiful and married to Lisa. He can do no wrong.

    • maria s says:

      Well, I went to see Aquaman just because of him. It’s the only superhero movie I’ve ever gone out to see.

  9. Megan Hurwitt says:

    I genuinely don’t see his appeal. Is it just because I prefer my guys short haired, clean faced? Am I alone in the non-thirst? Sebastian Stan is my fav but even he bums me out when he’s bearded up and long haired for winter soldier roles.

    Maybe Jason will do something for me if I can find pics of him looking clean cut.

    The weird thing is my husband usually sports scruff and I prefer it. It creeps me when he shaves it all off..

    • MoreSalt says:

      My comment got deleted, I think due to a crappy link – look up Jason Momoa Baywatch and enjoy his clean cut handsomeness. I find him irresistible either way.

    • Kitten says:

      When I see Sebastian Stan I see a major douche. I know that’s completely unfair but he just has that really cheesy, cocky-looking half-smile with the pursed lips thing that grosses me out.

      But I love Mamoa so you and I probably have opposite tastes :)

      My man rocks scruff too and whenever he threatens to shave I freak out a little haha. He looks great either way but I just prefer a bit of a beard.

  10. Natalia says:

    They all look amazing, love Lisa’s dress, love it when couples coordinate their look and this one is amazing, love Alison’s total look, and Queen Latifah is one of my favorite people of all time, don’t like the dress though. She HAS killed it in other dresses quite a bit …

    I understand how you feel Megan Hurwitt, although I think Jason is uber sexy. Love the sort-of 60′s throwback look.

  11. Megan Hurwitt says:

    Natalia, I can respect where those that love the long hair and scruff on a man are coming from. I guess I just have a type lol. Maybe it’s the Army in me.

    Clean cut Jason is a cutiepie. Though he looks 18 in here, which is cradle robbing. At this young I just want to pinch his cheeks and make sure he doesn’t drink too much or get slipped a roofie at his college theater troop after party. Wow, I officially feel old.

  12. Beth says:

    Jason’s suit looks about 2 sizes too small. It didn’t look pink, my first thought was beige, but I like when guys wear pink. His was pinkish beige, and Lisa’s was purple, a completely different color, so I didn’t understand why people last night were saying that their outfits were matching. I wasn’t crazy about her dress, but like usual, Lisa looked gorgeous

  13. Kerfuffle says:

    Last year’s acting Oscar winners weren’t unmemorable, Gary Oldman and his performance was unmemorable.

  14. savu says:

    I really think if that dress was much better, Lisa Bonet wouldn’t have worn it 🤷‍♀️

  15. KeishaMarie says:

    to each their own but I too think his look screams “in need of scrubdown!!” But some women love the caveman look. But does nothing for me, makes me itchy lol.

    I saw a pic of him in short clean cut hair and wow, he looked great. But this scruffy look has made him a lot of money and many women fans, so w. hat do I know lol. I love her and like them together, they seem really into each other and happy.

    • Nancy says:

      🙄 I hear you and feel your pain. Caveman is an accurate description. Lots of ladies here like him, so he’s getting the love, just not from us. Ha!

  16. tealily says:

    Allison Janney looks absolutely lovely.

  17. Nancy says:

    Lisa is and always has been so pretty. So is Zoe. But my dude, I can’t deal with those eyebrows. They’re so weird. I just don’t get his appeal. I guess you have to like beefy dudes or some such shat. I find him repulsive. Don’t tell my hubby, he doesn’t understand my disdain. I think he should be happy!!!!

  18. Lila says:

    Am I the only one disappointed he wasn’t wearing the scrunchie in his hair?

  19. Naddie says:

    I don’t get the hype over this couple. Lisa is fine since I don’t know anything about her so I assume she might be awesome, but him… Just no.

  20. Shannon Malcom says:

    I think they make a lovely couple. But I also can’t see the big deal about him, I guess he’s just not my type.

  21. Anare says:

    Allison Janney and Queen Latifa looked so statuesque. Gorgeous! I saw a clip of that Ashley model who was doing the red carpet for cbs trying to get Jason Momoa to do something silly and Lisa Bonet looked like she was not having it. I thought she was going to grab her hubbys arm and March off. Wish she would have. I couldn’t even watch cbs’s red carpet. So cringeworthy.

  22. Reeta Skeeter says:

    Jason is gorgeous but always comes across as a heavy-drinking dumdum. He doesn’t seem particularly deep or intelligent, whereas Lisa radiates depth and has a very serene, composed charm. I can’t imagine they have truly interesting conversations, but who knows? I imagine he can be a laugh but also exhausting.

  23. Pixie says:

    Oh my god he is beautiful. Him and lisa are a dream couple. Love them both. That haka moment was cringeworthy! How embarasssing.
