Aussie Style! "Style Star" debuted on the Style Network. This week the stars were Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman...yes, the Theme was "Style Star: Aussie Style". Ken Paves, LA Times Fashion Editor Melissa Magsaysay and my good friend Marcellas Reynolds. And personally, I had a BLAST commenting; I love these two fashion diva/muses. It's so easy to discuss the style evolution of women that are so "Style Inspirational"--to a Fashion Designer like myself--as Cate and Nicole. Jean Paul Gaultier gown she wore to the 2005 Golden Globe Awards. I loved the asymmetry of it, the weightlessness of it and of course, how Miss Cate carried it off--down to the last 1/4 inch of that train huney! As well as... The yellow silk taffeta Valentino (above) she wore to win her Best Actress Oscar at the 77Th Academy Awards in 2005. Now of course, in terms of Nicole Kidman... There was no denying that the Christian Dior Haute Couture chartreuse silk and mink "Chinoiserie" gown (above) from disgraced (and let-go) designer John Galliano that she wore at the 1997 Academy Awards was a DEFINITE "Nicole Kidman Style Star" moment! And one of my favorite looks from her was also this lipstick-red Balenciaga sleek silk crepe bow-necked halter gown which she wore to the 2007 Academy Awards. Love. Love. Love. To check out what else I--and all the other "Style Star" experts-- thought of Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman and their DIVA Aussie Style....
