More Couture Party Girls:
Anne Hathaway in Custom Saint Laurent: Congratulations to Anne Hathaway for winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. I admit, I was not a fan of her dusty rose Prada gown and I don't think this slate-gray blue gown from Saint Laurent is much better. It is very chic for sure and on Catherine Deneuve: I can totally see. But I expect more from Anne. I'd even give it a "good pass" on Natalie Portman--if she was pregnant. Those are my more-than-two cents.
Elizabeth Banks in Alexander McQueen: Beautiful. Love the color, the print of this silk chiffon gown, the fullness of the skirt vs. the teeny-tiny-ness of the strapless bustier. The accentuated fitted waist is also great. Well played Elizabeth.
Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta: What a polar opposite dress from that full beautiful ball gown she wore from Oscar de la Renta. Again, this is from the same designer and it works. The silver head-to-toe sequins are a big trend and the fringe is very in. Her hair looks better here than it did at the Oscars red carpet.
Lily Collins in Zuhair Murad: Gorgeous. The color is spectacular and Lily is vibing FABULOUSNESS.
Solange Knowles in Emilio Pucci: Solange. You are a Gay Man's Best Friend. At around 2AM. Neon Yellow, a modified 'fro. GURL. You have got some chutzpah and I give you points for that!
Naomi Watts in Emilio Pucci: Can I say something? I am not so sure about this one. I LOVED what she wore at the Oscars red carpet but this one-shoulder midnight blue-and-gold sequin number is a little too Retro Studio 54 for me. I admire all the sequins but maybe the gold section could have been a bit smaller.
