Now, I know bridal style fashion was all the rage at the Golden Globes, so there was a good chance it would follow through to the Oscars, but this dress? This dress actually is a wedding dress. In fact, I can distinctly remember seeing it come down the Catwalk, complete with veil, at the Armani Prive show at Paris Couture Week. See!
Anything you’d like to tell us, Beyonce? Hmmm?
To be fair to Beyonce, it’s a beautiful wedding dress, and if anyone can get away with it, it’s her. Glad to see she left the veil at home, though.
Rachel Weisz at 2007 The Oscars:
This could have all gone horribly wrong… Allover satin is a hard look to pull off, but Rachel Weisz totally manages it – with a little help from Vera Wang, of course. She looks like an Oscar statuette all on her own here, although I suspect you’d need to get a little closer to really appreciate the delicate, diamante neckline on the dress.
Jessicsa Biel on the red carpet
A useful rule of thumb to go by when buying a dress: never wear anything that allows those looking at you to see exactly what you must look like naked. Jessica Biel didn’t follow that rule of thumb, did she? Not only are her boobs n’ belly on clear display here, the halter neck is making her look top heavy – which must be pretty difficult actually, when you consider how perfect her figure is. Beautiful dress, beautiful woman – they just don’t do anything for each other, do they?
Fashion Police at the Oscars: Cameron Diaz
Of course, Beyonce wasn’t the only one to look like she was going to a wedding after the show. Cameron was clearly heading down the aisle too, and let’s be honest: it’s not the first time, is it? I much preferred Cameron’s Golden Globes dress to this bride-a-like number: I know I’ll probably be alone in saying that, but the other dress was prettier and more delicate – this has a bit of an 80s vive to it that I’m not quite happy with.
Isla Fisher at the 2007 Oscars
I heart Isla Fisher.. Not just because she’s a fellow redhead (and because I have a bit of a weakness for Australian soaps. SO?), but because she’s just so cute. Here, Isla works the redhead’s favourite colour – green – in a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown, and looks totally like Jessica Rabbit in the process. Yay for the fellow redheads!
Fashion Police at The Oscars: Nicole Kidman
Wow. I have to say I was pretty impressed with this year’s Oscar frocks. Not a whole lot of policing for us to do here – obviously there were the odd few Fashion Criminals amongst the throng, but still, pretty good year I’d say…
I love this bright red Balenciaga dress on Nicole Kidman. Not a colour she could have gotten away with before she went blonde, but hell, she can get away with it now, so she may as well make the most of it. Lately she’s been wearing a lot of whites and creams which are just too pale with her recent bleached look. This red is dramatic and looks great with the blonde hair and red lipstick.
