Although I try not make a habit of analysing what celebrities wear, I do make a yearly exception for the Academy Awards. This year was a pretty disappointing with no fun surprises (where’s Gaga and her egg when you need her?) I miss the days when people took risks.
Mila Kunis looked gorgeous in an etheral periwinkle lace Elie Saab gown although I wonder if it would have looked better in a darker shade. Cate Blanchett can do no wrong in my eyes and her space age meets couture Givenchy gown was stunning. Helen Mirren continues to proves that older women can show a little skin without looking trashy. Also a shout out to Gwyneth Paltrow, the ultimate California Girl with a golden tan and dress (by Calvin Klein) to match.
Not quite there yet
Jennifer Hudson needs to invest in a good bra or better stylist (where’s Andre Leon Talley when you need him?) Scarlett Johansson’s dress would have looked 10 times better if she lopped off six inches at the neckline. I know Penelope Cruz just gave birth but has she never heard of spanx? Natalie Portman’s dress was flattering and a gorgeous colour but the tacky beading threw me off. Maybe she should have stuck with Dior afterall?
