I, like many around the world, sat glued in front of the television last night waiting to see what the starlets of the Academy would be wearing. While I was not overly impressed by many of the dresses, my top three choices had me screaming when I saw them.
The first wower was George Clooney’s date for the evening, Stacey Kiebler. looked absolutely breathtaking in her Marchesa gown that was made from a metallic fabric of shimmering gold. In similar fashion, the WWE wrestler was a winner in the popular off the shoulder number that was repeated in many of the fashions worn for the evening. Stacey almost looked like her handsome dates own personal Oscar. The hip line of the dress was gracefully adorned in a soft flower composed of the same fantastic material. George Clooney looked dashing in his Giorgio Armani suit but yet I am not sure he could look bad in anything.
The second couture stunner was the ever so stunning, Jennifer Lopez. While this dress was not as beautiful as the one she wore a few years back to the same show- vintage couture, this Zuhair Murad number was shimmery, clingy, and translucent and some might even say exposing. The dress was the ever so popular shimmering white echoed throughout the evening of attendees.
Gwyneth Paltrow really stole the show for me but I was disappointed not see a flurry around her gown. When she stepped onto the red carpet the tall wispy blonde looking nothing more than a flashback of old Hollywood. A straight line white gown gently ruched and strapless looked beautiful when she got up to present an award but the outfit was perfection when paired with the Tom Ford Cape that gently hung from her narrow shoulders. Coupled with a simple 1920′s diamond bracelet, Gwyneth proved the sometimes less is more.
Can’t wait for next year!!
