The gorgeous Halle Berry in Nina Ricci (from Olivier Theyskens' last Fall 2009 Collection for the house). *Thank you to my informed commenter/reader for pointing it out--LOVE my readers!
Wish I could say the same for that gown. Two Words: Oh Dear. In a sea of Statement-Making Architecturally Draped Gowns and all-over beaded stunners, she shows up in this? A black chiffon and satin bustier dress that looks as if she's wearing her undergarments and hasn't actually gotten dressed yet. Is it 2003 or 2011? The under-dress cuts her off at the thigh and the chiffon over-drape skirt is just odd. And to top everything off, she makes a very safe and dated shoe choice. If she had gone with an edgier platform shoe, I might have thought she was making a statement. Definitely NOT one of my favorites of the night. And interestingly enough, why I do LOVE it on the model, on the runway, and with those STOMPING boots? But, wow, Halle is GA-GA-GORGEOUS!!?? Look at that body, that face!!! What did you guys think of her gown choice?

You might want to fact check that. It's actually from Theysken's last collection for Nina Ricci. It's the 26th look.

I'd have to say that I absolutely loved this dress. It's kind of refreshing from all of those beaded confection-y dresses. Even if it's not following the trends of the RC she owned it. For an actress on the comeback, especially with a career like hers this says a sultry, "Miss me?" instead of, "Hey! Hey! Look at me!!!! I'm here!!! Remember me?" kinda like Christina Aguilera.
