Well Meryl of course. And The Artist, of course! A predictable night at last night’s Academy Awards but not quite as predictable on the red carpet. There were quite a few treats, a few OMGs and a fair bit of bla.
Starting at the top! Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford and Cameron Diaz in Gucci. For me the winners of the night! I loved Gwyneth’s little cape. So simple yet so elegant and of course so fashion. Cameron was clearly poured into her Gucci and looks sooooo sexy.
Green Goddesses, Viola Davis in Vera Wang and Glenn Close in Zac Posen. I love that Viola has continued to show off her figure throughout awards season. It’s almost too much but you kinda think, you go girl! Alas my dolls only get that haircut when they’ve been really bad but I’m loving the statement earrings to bring out the feminine side (as if the boobs weren’t enough!) Glenn Close looked fabulous in that cute tuxedo jacket. Powerful yet still quite girly.
Meryl really was a golden girl in her glittering Lanvin gown. While I don’t normally advise dressing as the award you know you’re going to get, I loved this super sparkly number.
My other rule of thumb is avoiding red! Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton and Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli both ignored my advice. Also Emma’s dress was scarily similar to Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga from back in 2007. The only person to get away with it at the Oscars was Heidi in Galliano way back in 2008. Girls. Please call me next time and we can work it out together. At least Michelle didn’t turn up in Primarni.
Speaking of similar dresses… Awkward moment of the night goes to the black sequinned treat that was Anna Faris in DVF and Rose Byrne in Westwood. Both went for oodles of sequins and black eyeliner and a heavy fringe. I think three out of four of the images below are wigs…
And finally. Although predictable, Angelina did look amazing in velvety Versace. For me (and Liz Hurley) there is no occasion not to wear a slit to the thigh but this dress looked perfect on the red carpet. Ange needs some lessons from me and Liz on how to pose but full marks for sex appeal.
And that, doll lovers, is your Oscars round up for 2012. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. See you at Paris Fashion week. X
