Red Carpet Glamour Prevails at Oscars - Page 2
The youngest person to ever to host the Academy Awards, Anne Hathaway, started the evening by appealing to old Hollywood in a red archival Valentino gown. A diamond necklace from Tiffany's was also fittingly elegant. Her low chignon was the perfect hairstyle to complement the look, her way of saying I'm still hip.
There was a proliferation of Japanese-inspired high-neck, cap-sleeve, straight bodied gowns. Scarlett Johansson wore an amethyst lace styled number, Amy Adams a blue sequined one, and Annette Bening a sparkling black gown. Best Supporting Actress Melissa Leo - who will forever be remembered by her f-bomb slip - also wore a variation of this theme.
Reese Witherspoon channeled Betty and Veronica with a high ponytail containing lots of extensions. Although her hairdo was puzzling, her black Armani dress with white trim was a great figure flattering choice.
Jennifer Hudson was a walking advertisement for Weight Watchers in a skin tight tangerine Versace gown. She was stunning, despite overdoing the cleavage.
Best Actress Natalie Portman looked every bit a champion in an eggplant colored gown. She proved that fashion and baby bumps can, in fact, coexist.
My runaway favorite of the night was Mila Kunis, wearing a lavender chiffon Elie Saab gown with a low neckline. Gracefully draping her body with a short train, it was the perfect modern choice for a storied evening. If they come out with a Best Ordinary Person award, I might sell my car and buy it. I assure you my acceptance speech will be classier than Melissa's.
