It's that time again - where I bring you step by step through the important part of the Oscars - the fashion. I'll be updating continuously throughout the night. Enjoy!
First up on the red carpet, new mom Maggie Gyllenhall and her fiance Peter Sarsgaard:
I think the asymmetrical neckline is flattering, and I like the feathers all around the hem. Well played!
Next up we've got Portia de Rossi, girlfriend of the host Ellen DeGeneres, also in blue and black, and also looking fabulous:
I wish you could see the bottom and back of this dress -- very flowy, lots of pretty, string-y details.
Now, for something bad no good. Jodie Foster.
I don't even recognize her. I wouldn't think the dress was so bad just seeing in on it's own, but... this doesn't even look like her, it distorts her shape, and the color washes her out. No good.
And, as things seem to come in streaks, the next photo I have is also bad: Jessica Biel. Her hair! Even Matt didn't like the way she looks. And he ALWAYS likes the way she looks.
The waist is in the wrong place, the back of it obscures her awesome bo-dank-a-dank, and her HAIR! She should fire her stylist.
Now. I love everything about this dress on Cameron Diaz: It's unusual, it's attractive, the color works with her hair, it looks awesome with her new nose. Just one thing:
Next time, sweetie, get a size larger. This one doesn't fit.
Jennifer Hudson has looked awesome at the awards shows this season, and the public has fallen in love with her. But apparently, she's decided to test that love. With an ugly, metallic, unflattering, python print shrug:
I think that the dress is fine on it's own, but I can't get past the blinding insanity of the jacket to really know for sure.
Ok, I don't know what Kirsten Dunst was aiming for here:
If it was "busy and unflattering", then she nailed it.
Finally, someone who looks amazing.
Helen Mirren. I hope that I look half this good when I'm 60.
