|Everything about this long-sleeved gown is perfect: The combination of floral print and stripes, sheerness and shine.|
Her makeup and midnight blue manicure are perfect, too. This is hands-down my favorite Oscar look.
|Jennifer Hudson's dress is the most beautiful shade of blue. I love the color, pattern, shine, and especially the sleeves.|
Those dark blues are so alluring, but maybe redder is better?
|Sally Field nailed it! Can you believe this woman is SIXTY-SIX years old?!|
She's earned a spot as Hollywood royalty, and her gown makes her look like a queen.
|Hilary Swank's dress is almost exactly like Sally's, so of course I love it.|
Imagine if it was strapless. Boring, right? Those sleeves add class and style.
How about a filmy combination of black and nude?
|Emma Roberts has it all: Sleeves, shiny gold beadwork, and black lines that recall Art Deco styles.|
But where are the real Art Deco dresses?
Okay, wait for it...
These are amazing!
Isn't it gorgeous the way these lines accentuate Stacy's hips and Halle's shoulders, bust, and waistline? And those vertical lines make them both look impossibly tall. Stacy really IS an Amazon, but Halle is only 5'6. Doesn't that dress make her look statuesque, though? I'm so jealous! As much as I'd like to look that tall, when I really think about it, I'm pretty sure I know whose dress I'd borrow to wear to the Oscars. I love Lily Collins' dress, but I'd probably trip on the train. And I'm not crazy about Zooey Deschanel's manically cutesy image, but her Valentino gown is lovely.
|I'd definitely lose the little girl purse on a chain. And if I could change the color, I'd make the dress|
midnight blue from the bust down, and keep the delicate nude mesh on the neck and sleeves. Can you imagine it?
Think about it. This is the most excellent dress ever, because...
Unless a dress fits all these criteria, I'm not interested!
