Red was the overwhelming color of choice at this year’s 80th Annual Academy Awards which took place on Sunday night. Other notable trends include draped dresses and mermaid silhouettes. There was a three-way tie for favorite in my eyes. I loved that the usually laid-back, un-fussy Jennifer Garner looked edgy and glamorous and anyone who knows me, knows my affinity for black clothing. Then, there is the lovely, classic Anne Hathaway in a gorgeous Marchesa gown reminiscent of a sea-foam gown Kate Winslet wore a few years ago. Rounding out my top three is the stunning Helen Mirren. I would love to age as well as she has. She exudes a type of confidence and sensuality that rivals that of many actresses half her age.
Jennifer Garner in Oscar de la Renta
Helen Mirren in George Chakra
Marion Cotillard in Jean Paul Gaultier
Heidi Klum in John Galliano – I can’t decide if I love or hate this dress. One thing’s for sure, it fits her beautifully. Then again, she’s Heidi Klum. Everything fits her beautifully.
