Abso-fashion-lutely trends at the 79th
(79th Academy Awards)
Any colour under the sun was
worn by celebrities…
Neckpieces were few…
Bracelets were big…
Lots of mermaid-lines and
Evening dresses had
Mistakes? Oh yes!

Jennifer Hudson (in Oscar de la Renta) shot into the space age with a jacket that came
from nowhere, …and I hope it is not going anywhere. I
abso-fashion-lutely did not like this ensemble. Why hide her
most beautiful asset – her neckline, or cover an otherwise
beautifull dress? Maybe she realised this because
apparently she was the first to get changed for the celebration
Kirsten Dunst (in Chanel) got out of the "nest" and was still busy plucking when the
show started. There was just too much going on …everywhere
…anywhere… Always plan a focal point on your outfit, Me
Dunst. "Either ...or..." is the solution.
(James Galanos from Lillie et Cie) grabbed the wrong handbag
(Gold in stead of Silver). I loved the colour and the
simplicity of the design, but struggle with the the silver
and/or gold "trend" (big?). I believe in undertones
Rinko Kikuchi (in Chanel Haute Couture) neglected to disguise her bony neckline. A
small pendant or jewelry piece would have done the trick.
She did redeem herself from what happened at the Golden Globes
where she wore a Poodle-like pink garment, also by Chanel.
(in Valentino) confused me with a very wrong and very “hard”
neckline and another space look appearing (not on photo).
Looks like this dress was left next to the laundry bin the night
before, forgetting that she was on her way to the Oscars. The
front is completely freaking me out. It is shorter,
equally hard on the eye and it makes me long for Me Diaz in a
softer look, lighter hair. We dare not blame Justin
Timberlake for this.
(in Atelier Versage) must have forgotten her stilleto’s. I adore this
dress, but it was by far too heavily bottomed ( a complete mess
down there...) for such a petite
woman. Where were the “bridesmaids”? This creates
the "borrowed" look. Me Cruz is shorter than average
measurements for model garments suggests. If she did buy
this dress, I am sure Me Donatella from Versage would have
suggested to have the hemline shortened.
Jennifer Lopez (in Marchesa) opted for the maternity-look, and also forgot to have the
hem-line shortened or is she finally sinking? I was mesmerized by the Jewelled neckline. Although this line often works for bigger hips, one should take
special care not to use tooooo much fabric at he bottom, or use
a colour that is too light. Remember dark colours make
I have nothing against
Blanchet’s gown (in
Armani Privé), just have a thing against a tummy and upper leg
in a shiny fabric. Me Blanchet gets away with this because
of her beautiful posture
and almost flawless figure.
Gwynneth Paltrov (in Zac Posen) calmed me down with a soft bodyhugging masterpiece.
I struggle a bit with the additional "criss-cross" above the
"could have been more enhanced" bust-line, but the overall look
is captivating. I'm not so sure if the colour suits her.
(in Balenciaga) enchanted with an improved “Charlize Theron”-bow in the
most beautiful red colour that I have seen in a long long time.
This design is simple, uncomplicated and presents Me Kidman with
another enigmatic look.
Reese Witherspoon (in Nina Ricci) represented divorced women remakably. I am awestruck by
this design … the most beautiful complimenting colour in a
well-designed haute couture design that is abo-fashion-lutely
flawless. Short people should stick to one colour from top
to bottom for a longer look, but Me Whitherspoon gets away with
this easily because of the diagonal lines.
Dame Helen Mirren
(in Christian Lacroix). This woman is putting 20 year-old girls
to shame. Her figure, her style, her overall look just wows me
every time I see her. The "nude"-look that is highfashion
this season proves to work for women "of a certain age" as well. There was abso-fashion-lutely nothing
wrong with her representation. (Have not met her, but will
