My first reaction upon seeing the scaly scalloped mermaid-style dress by Jean-Paul Gaultier on French actress Marion Cotillard was that I didn't like it. But then if you notice, she's absolutely stunning! The dress fits her perfectly and she stands out from the crowd. She's my vote for overall best dressed at the Oscars. Why? That's cuz the other actressess pretty much look the same o' Hollywood. Rene Zellweger, Hillary Swank, Cameron Diaz -- they just stand there in their staged, overly-used poses. Even little Miley Cyrus was spewing out cliches as she did her over the shoulder pose in her Valentino dress. Sigh... So there I've said it. I was tired of all the cheesiness. I've rated my Best Dressed for the Oscars based on how their personality shown through what they wore. And isn't that what style's all about?
A lot of actressses wore red Oscar night but Katherine Heigel was the best out of all of them. She looked amazing in her red over the shoulder red Escada dress because she came off like a regular gal. I was actually a bit nervous for her when she came on stage because she started her presentation by saying how nervous she was.
Jennifer Garner who looked absolutely glamorous in her Oscar De La Renta gown with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels (The necklace and the bangles are beautiful!). Yet she still had that honest girl next door charm as talked to Ryan Seacrest on E! She also handled the whole Gary Busey bizarre interruption pretty well.
A pregnant Nicole Kidman went simple in her gown but didn't skimp on jewels adorning the diamond necklace in layers of layers in the front and the back. Just stunning!
Also is it just me or does Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis look exactly the same each year? They are ageless!
