It's Party Time!! Lily Collins in Monique Lhuillier: Not your typical ballgown and definitely A LOT of dress for an Oscar Party, but somehow it works on Lily and definitely creates a "brand" for her big movie set to premiere. Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace: Great color and a fun dress, but somehow Kate makes it look too casual, like she is heading to a beach party. I think it is the hair that kills it for me. Julie Bowen in Halston: She seems to always make odd dress choices and this is no exception. Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad: JLo, of course, had to do an outfit change and continued her "Bombshell" look with a 2nd Zuhair Murad Gown. It's a beautiful color, but not quite as strong a look as what she wore at the Oscars. Maybe she would have done best to switch it up a bit. Venus and Serena Williams in Christiane King: Christiane is a fellow Project Runway Alum so kudos to her for dresses the sisters, but unfortunately I'm not a big fan of either dress. They look a bit "Happy Hands at Home". Elizabeth Banks in Chadwick Bell: It's quite a dress and although most will hate it, there is something about the whole look that I actually like. It is unusual and she makes it work. She seems to be a big fan of Polka Dots! Claire Danes in Valentino: While I love Valentino and love a bright color on the Red Carpet, this entire look is a bit much for me. The color with that very "prom-like" silhouette just is not working. Cameron Diaz in Victoria Beckham: I wish she would have worn this color to the Oscars! While this might not have been dressy enough for the Academy Awards, if she had picked a custom gown by Calvin Klein in one of these bright neon colors, she would have been one of my best dressed. So glad she changed for the party! Amy Adams in Vivienne Westwood: Amy usually never goes this sexpot route so this is quite a departure for her. I love the dress, I just don't think it is quite right for her. Let me know what you think!!
