The best dressed was Julia Roberts!
She just sucks the air out of the room here. What a jaw-dropping entrance. (Technically she wasn’t on the Red Carpet, but hands-down added halo to the evening.) The only persons who looked better went straight to the Vanity Fair after-party.
Here, Julia has overdone nothing. And its not just the fuchsia… she’s radiant inside-out. Brilliant, just brilliant!
Also looking very good were:
Beauty in simplicity! The depth/height of the collar is a bit off, but she carries this really well. And not a tattoo in sight… Marvellous!
Blimey, she looks good! Lipstick almost matching nails… check! But it’s the earrings… she nails it with the earrings!!
Wonderful! A modest necklace and a gold bracelet on her left wrist would have been the icing on this Flamenco-inspired cake!
Elegant, but she could have done more, for example with her hair. (Don’t style hair for the Oscars, as you would going to the shower.)
Wonderful! More Summery than Oscar-Red-Carpet, but hey… she had brain surgery last year. Well done.
Oh what could have been:
The dress stars fairly well but is let down by the supporting cast of her hair and nails. Love the slit that seems to slither upwards into a cutout that’s symmetric to the slanted cut at her cleavage. The outfit conjures joy in anticipation of its potential, yet bittersweet sadness in its failure to be realized.
