I really don't GET the lopsided hem look. Ankles and feet, even clad in $500 shoes, are just not that nice to look at. These dresses with the front hems raised so far off the floor just look wrong to me. I'd like Zoey's - and Michelle Dockery's - gowns much better with an even hem.
People magazine says that from 1999 to present, no one has ever taken home an Academy Award wearing green, silver or orange. Guess actresses today aren't very superstitious, or maybe just not paying attention.
The commentary in the Guardian article is , but I'm grateful for the link, Lugg. Gotta see those pictures!
Lugg: I did love Lupita Nyongo's dress - she really is very beautiful. >> Agree! << She also is wearing the dress, not vice-versa, despite the fact that she seems to be very tiny. I think a very modern choker would have been a nice touch, maybe something with a discreet square emerald right in the hollow of her throat. Also, one less cuff & maybe a knockout ring, but no argument that she looks fabulous.
Bjd: the top of Uma Thurman's dress doesn't fit properly. Shan't go into my rant about that again, but yes, you are so right.
Kerouac: The Vivienne Westwood dress certainly fits Lily Allen's personality, so it was probably an appropriate choice for her -- but not for any other living human being. Don't agree, although do agree that it needs the right personality + hair & skin tone. I like to think I could have pulled that off in my youth, dippy bridesmaid's butt bow & all. Lily certainly looks wonderful in it.
Not a fan of the severe tops to the formal dresses, Cate Blanchett's being a good example of why. It's an ugly, uninspired dress & her hair is hideous.
Angelina Jolie looks as though she arrived from a nice vacation rather than from her coffin for a change. I can only assume the couple have contracted for a line of dolls a la Raggedy Ann & Andy & are modeling the first set of clothes.
Emma Thompson annoys me sometimes. Besides being a super actress, she is quite pretty & a bona fide star. Work those angles, Emma!
Even Helen Mirren finally had to age. *sigh* She looks glamorous despite the fussy neckline, but really needs to gain a little weight.
Really, bjd? They all look overweight? Scarlett Johansson? Frédérique Bel? I think it might be your screen, or you are a very thin lady indeed.
I think Rossy de Palma is a fabulous looking woman. I first saw her in an Almodovar and I thought she looked like a beautiful exotic parrot. Yes, she has a huge nose, and thank god she never tried to make a career in the US.
No, not the Scottish one, Polanski made this film also in 1971.
I sat in the crowd opposite the Tyrell pit where Polanski was filming and he shot me and my friend as faces in the crowd. My son happened to see the film on TV and took a screenshot, I have a print somewhere.
Man is not lost, only temporarily uncertain of his position
