If the others are divisional championships, the Academy Awards as the Super Bowl of awards season, and last night did not disappoint (the Red Carpet didn’t anyway). Personal stylist Jill Marinelli and I were up bright and early to dish on our fashion hits and misses. Click the image above to watch the clip!
We both agreed Haliee Stienfeld and Halle Berry, each in blush-toned in Marchesa gowns were extraordinary, and we equally adored Mila Kunis in her lavender Elie Saab Haute Couture lace and silk organza gown. Jill loved Jennifer Husdon in tangerine Versace, and while I think she looked amazing overall–the hair, the makeup, even the silhouette and color of the dress–I thought the decolletage was distracting. Gwyneth Paltrow’s Calvin Klein was simple, elegant and intriguing with an unusual neckline, and instanting glamorous in a silver/gold shimmer. I didn’t mention it on our segment, but I also adored Mandy Moore in an off-the-shoulder, illusion neckline dress by Monique Lhuillier, also in blush.
Though we agreed on Michelle Williams’ exquisite hair and make up, I gave her short sleeve, form-fitting Chanel two thumbs up for it’s classic Mia Farrow style, while Jill thought Williams could have made a more figure flattering choice. Another jaw dropper was Jennifer Lawrence in a body-hugging, flaming red Calvin Klein number.
Our misses included Scarlett Johansson in Dolce & Gabanna (maroon lace? not so much…), Nicole Kidman in Dior (really? you wanted to add volume to your hips?) and Helena Bonham Carter wearing a velvet and taffeta dress by Colleen Atwood–but I give her a pass because her eccentricity is predictable–I’m not expecting to she her in a pastel de la Renta anytime soon..
Had a great time with you Jill! Thank you again Rhode Show– always a fun, coffee-fueled morning!
