Myley Cyrus looks so beautiful and age-appropriate in a red chiffon Valentino gown and small bow detail (at the back), chandelier earrings and a bronze lizard clutch with Swarovski crystals by Mary Norton and Sergio Rossi shoes; her hair is soft and her makeup delicate. Helen Mirren is beautiful in a garnet red satin gown by Georges Chaakra, love the Swarovski crystal drop sleeves and back detail. Julie Christie is also classy in a shorter custom designed red dress by her stylist Tanya Gill; I'm not too crazy about the pink organza gloves though.
Ruby Dee looked stunning and so vibrant and youthful in her bright red Kevan Hall long satin gown, belt and short jacket. Perfect for her short hairstyle and natural makeup. Love the silver bag as an accent, which recalls the buckle on her belt.
Here are the pregnant beauties of Hollywood: Angelina Jolie who did not show up on the Oscar's Red Carpet is surely showing something else (photo from the Indipendent Spirit Awards)! Radiant Nicole Kidman is not showing much of a baby bump and wore a shapeless black Balenciaga gown and a big L'Wren Scott 3 strands necklace; not my favourite of the movie star's looks, loved her Chanel Beaute makeup and beautiful soft hairdo. Cate Blanchett is gorgeous in a purple Dries Van Noten gown, jeweled necklace (a big oversized) and the jewels by Lorraine Schwartz; admire her courage to show up in 4 inches heels. Another beautiful and radiant Oscar's Red Carpet beauty is Jessica Alba who wore a plum strapless Marchesa gown with feather details on the bodice and empire waistline, accented by Cartier jewelry and Jimmy Choo shoes and purse, absolutely exquisite!
The Best dressed ladies of the Oscar's Red Carpet, were these beautiful leading ladies: Hilary Swank wore a black one shoulder strap Versace gown and Chopard hair clips, earrings and bracelet. Jennifer Garner trusted her talented stylist Rachel Zoe to dress her in a stunning ruffled strapless Oscar de la Renta gown and beautiful Van Cleef & Arpels vintage jewels. Penelope Cruz also chose a strapless gown with feathers and drape detail by Chanel Haute Couture and Chopard ruby and diamond drop earrings.
Not so glamorous in black: Kirstin Chenoweth who wore an Armani Prive' strapless gown, jewels by Tiffany & Co. and shoes by C. Louboutin; the wrapped organza makes her middle area seem bigger and bulging. Oscar winner Tilda Swinton is wearing a shapeless black-washed silk draped gown by Alber Elbaz for Lanvin, her lack of shape, makeup and hairstyle makes her the worst dressed on the Oscar's Red Carpet. Ellen Page is once again plain boring in a shapeless Jean Louis Scherrer from Decades gown; I like her vintage bag by Judith Leiber and long necklace by Fred Leighton. I realize that she has simple taste, however, this is the biggest movie award ceremony worldwide...it deserves a bit more reverence from the movie star!
Renee Zellweger shows her gorgeous gams in this high slit silver strapless (hand embroidered) lace gown by Carolina Herrera and Cartier Jewelry, this gown is a bit "last season", nevertheless she looks beautiful. Cameron Diaz is "pretty in blush-pink" taffeta custom made Dior gown by John Galliano, and small Bulgari jewelry. Keri Russell is beautiful in the champagne organza strapless gown by Nina Ricci and long necklace by H.Stern and Sergio Rossi shoes.
These gowns were not among my favourites: beautiful Amy Adams looks washed out in a dark green strapless gown by Proenza Schuler, and very dated by the gold fringed art deco purse accent; the H. Stern jewelry and Chopard cuff are beautiful though. Amy Ryan is also washed out by the navy blue one-shoulder gown by Calvin Klein, she could have benefitted by some colored accessories or a red lip; beautiful H. Stern diamonds and Chopard cuff. French movie star Marion Cotillard opted for a daring Jean Paul Gautier 'scaly' gown, Chopard jewelry and Sergio Rossi shoes; this mermaid inspired look, completed by the long side hairdo, makes the french actress look like "a fish out of water" in the sea of old Hollywood glamour.
The most stylish couples on the Oscar's Red Carpet were: Johnny Depp and companion Vanessa Paradis, George Clooney and Sarah Larson and Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart. Talented and stylish Johnny Depp is wearing a black custom tuxedo by Giorgio Armani and custom shirt by Anto Beverly Hills, while Vanessa Paradis is super chic in a black silk crepe Chanel Haute Couture gown, Chanel Fine jewelry "Camelia" necklace in 18K white gold and diamonds, and Chanel makeup. Heart-throb George Clooney wears a black one button, shawl collar tuxedo, while girlfriend Sarah Larson is in a beautiful Valentino Couture strapless gown. Harrison Ford is in an Arnold Brant one button tuxedo and girlfriend Calista Flockhart is wearing a delicate babyblue vintage Valentino and Sergio Rossi shoes.
Also very stylish pairs on the Oscar's Red Carpet were Colin Farrell in Dunhill midnight blue double breasted suit and the best accessory of the night: his gorgeous mother Rita!
John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston were not less stylish in black tuxedo and orange Roberto Cavalli gown and Schwartz jewelry.
Very stylish men on the red carpet: Spanish movie star and oscar winner Javier Bardem wore a stylish 4 button navy tuxedo, and navy silk tie both by Prada. Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs wore a black vested tuxedo which was a mix of his label Sean Jean and Dolce & Gabbana. And finally, the very talented Viggo Mortensen was so elegant in a long jacket black custom made tuxedo by David Robinson and striped black and grey tie, and a touch of color: the red rose! One of the fashion-statement men at the Oscar's this year! So nice to see celebrities take a leap of Faith sometimes when it comes to fashion, Viggo Mortensen sure stands out in the sea of fitted black and white tuxedos.
