Nancy O'Dell - The
gown many matric-farewell girl would want to wear, but
very few can. Luckily "all" stayed in place...
I suspect, by looking at her tan-lines, that boob-tjoops
are a fashionable item? Definitely sexy, but not
so classy, Me O''Dell.
Keisha Whitaker -
Almost flawless and almost bridal. Hollywood glamour
that will inspire many to come...
in John Galliano Couture - Dynamic and
dramatic, but with accessories that match the carpet and
not the dress! Very few women can get away with this
overpowering look. Me Klum does!
in Georges Chakra - Spencer-like
sleeves... this might look like an after thought. I do
not mind the drapery, the colour is beautiful, but the
sleeves look borrowed from another gown.
in Versace - Soft in black. Stylishly
embellished with lace flowers. Would have loved to
see some bling on the ears.
in Roberto Cavalli - Looks a little like
"something" on top of another... Me Hudson celebrates
her fuller figure with this, but should rather have not!
in Tanya Gill - This is why short is a no-no
on the red carpet, --- and another spencer sleeve
add-on? I am completely confused by this.
in Escada - One of my two favourites of the
evening! Classy and chic! Drapery galore!
...at perfect angles, and a simple knotted circle as a
focus on the shoulder.
in Roberto Cavalli - Hemline gone wrong?
It easily looks like the fabric was not enough to do the
in Jean Paul Gaultier - A risky but beautiful
mermaid style... complete with "fish scales" on the
in Chanel Couture - Too much "Moulin
Rouge" going on! Are her dresses always too long,
or is she just too short for everything she likes
in Carolina Herera - Shining like a
star! This is what a true Hollywood star should
in Alber Elbaz for Lanvin - I often
criticize what me Swinton is wearing, but this...? I
suppose its lots less than disastrous. Special care
should be taken when "safe dressing": ...that it
does not become "boring dressing..."
in Proenza Schuler - What would the
belt be for? And who did me Adams borrow the
pretty vintage bag from?
in Marchesa - Flowers are for
arrangements in pots, not on dresses, but the colour
really compliments Me Hathaway's fair skin.
in Vintage Valentino - Gothic and
regal! The beauty of this gown is in the
in Dior by John
Galliano - Did Me Diaz grab this
crinkling masterpiece from the washing line? ... or
should it look like the iron was cold?
in Dries van Noten - Pregnant women
are beautiful and almost always forgiven for fashion
mistakes. I hope Me Blanchett does not stay
in Oscar de la Renta - Too long, but
engagingly opulent! Love the handbag, not the
bracelet, and please loose the necklace...
in Balenciaga - Never in a million
years did I think I would like this ensemble, but with
Me Kidman being pregnant, this is incredibly stylish and
perfect for her!
