This is a look that I'm used to seeing on Reese Witherspoon, but I'm loving it on Amy Adams, too! The sleek column dress with stick-straight hair is flawless, and she looks amazing. I seriously can't wait to see her Oscars look - she hasn't missed yet this season!
I want this dress in my wardrobe right. Now. Yeah, it's a tad ill-fitting in the bodice, but the color is glorious on Edith's skin, she accessorized perfectly, her hair was mussy enough to contrast the lace, and it was a unique, stand-out piece.
Plus it has pockets. You can't beat a dress with pockets.
I said it once, and I'll say it again - THIS is the Reese I like to see on the carpet. Simple, sleek, modern. Beachy waves in the hair. Flawless.
She should also only wear purple from now until forever. It's her color, for sure. (remember the Oscars in 2007? Eggplant works for her.)
PLUS can we talk about how slamming her body is in this dress? Ridiculous.
This woman in black, I tell you. I've been loving her looks this season, and this was no exception. The neckline was perfect for her, and the overall cut made her look like a tall glass of water.
THIS is how you dress your age. Her look is sparkley without being overdone, age appropriate without being matronly.
I'll admit, I might be a bit biased because she's Molly Weasley. Still, I hope when I'm 64 I'll look this good.
Eddie Redmayne and
Both of these looks could have gone horribly wrong, but together they managed to work.
A blue velvet suit is extremely risky, and a high-collared metallic lace dress is usually a red carpet miss. However, the sheen of the blue velvet and the blue-slate gown compliment each other perfectly.
They look like opulent, red carpet royalty.
Edward Norton and Shauna Robertson
I've discussed before how hard it is to pull off a tea-length dress, but Shawna did so flawlessly. The pale blue-and-gold color was perfect for Shawna's skin tone, and the silhouette looked amazing on her figure. I'm a stickler for styling, and her earrings, ring, shoes, and hair all worked together harmoniously.
Edward did us all a favor and kept it simple and classic as our Good Lord intended.
Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci
These Spectre actresses really pulled out all the stops for the BAFTAs this year.
Lea's yellow gown was a fashion moment reminiscent of Michelle Williams' 2006 saffron Vera Wang Oscars look. I want this gown in my wardrobe. I would wear it every day of my life and prance through a field of marigolds and daffodils.
And Monica's gown was just as lovely in a dark, tall, goddess sort of way. Usually a bell sleeve and a dropped flare would be a serious faux pas, but because her gown was tailored flawlessly, the result was amazing. I want Angelina Jolie to wear this look ASAP.
Benedict Cumberbatch and
Sophie Hunter has rocked her pregnancy all award season long, and this look was no exception. She and Benedict both look best in basic black.
Keira Knightly and James Righton
I'm thrilled that Keira has continued to redeem herself after her fashion disaster at the Globes. This look was so "English Tea with the Queen," and it was a perfect ensemble for the BAFTAs.
Keira and James should totally stick with black and white - it works for them!
I have hereby decided that David Beckham should make an appearance at every award show from now until forever, dressed just like this.
Yup. That is all.
If you're going to do a colored jacket, this is how you do it. Make it a solid, not obnoxious color with a single button, and everything else should be classic and tailored. Well. Done.
I don't think I realized how tall Tom was until he showed up in this look. The skinny, tailored pant did wonders.
I've spoken before about how difficult a double-breasted suit can be to pull off, especially if you aren't really thin. Michael's slightly two-tone look managed to work wonders. I really hope he shows up in a similar look to the Oscars!!
This was an extremely disappointing look for Felicity, especially given how great she looked at the SAG awards. I can see how this gown might have looked good on the runway, and the idea was a decent one, but the fit was just wrong.
It was rumpled at the bust, too long by her feet, and the flowers started too low on her hips. If the waistline had been moved up to her natural waist, the whole look might have been better.
Plus...taffeta? Taffeta rarely works on anyone.
Okay. I hate saying anything bad about anything related to Hayley Atwell. She plays Agent Carter. She's my feminist hero. I adore everything about her. BUT.
This is just not a good look. The dress kind of made a 40s reference, but it wasn't quite 40s enough, and the asymmetry on the dress and the wavy seam in the front was just weird and unflattering. What's worse is that the styling is all wrong. You can't do a 40s referential dress with an 80s stripper shoe!!
And maybe I'm just used to her Peggy Carter "sweet dreams" red lip, but her makeup made her look washed out and older than she is. Disappointing for such a beautiful woman.
I have no idea what Julianne was thinking. This might have been an okay look in 1996, but it's not remotely okay now. The sleeves. The CHOKER. Ugh.
At least if you're going to do this, put your hair up and get it out of the way of the gown. It's just too much red for this red-head.
I don't think there's a lot to say about this.
Just because you ARE a star doesn't mean you have to WEAR one.
