Purpose in life?

“Looking good and dressing well is a necessity. Having a purpose in life is not.”
Oscar Wilde

The top frocks from the Oscars 2011 red carpet, in my opinion:

1. The best dress of them all has to be this simply stunning number by Elie Saab, worn by Mila Kunis:



2. A close runner-up is this gorgeous little number by (British fashion house) Marchesa, sported by the ever-stylish Halle Berry:



3. I particularly love this vintage Charles James frock, sported by Marisa Tomei:



4. Hilary Swank looked wonderful in this ostrich feather-trimmed Gucci number:



5. And last, but by no means least, Sandra Bullock wore this Vera Wang gown particularly well...

  1. The James dress, divine. The fit and her styling? My dear! Does Miss Tomei not have a gay of her very own?

    Miss Bullock has grown into a lovely woman. Her makeup was flawless. So smart from head to toe.

    I love Hillary Swank's severity of line. Always.

  2. How I long for the "hobble" look - I can't be faffed with this relentless trend for bottom-of-the-dress fandango. Yeuch. Looks like they've burst at the knees.
    & black. What the hell happened to black...?!

  3. Hmmm - you have a point. What DID happen to black this year? Jx

  4. Or a split-skirt dress? Or even a wraparound, despite associated risks...?

  5. I love that Charles James dress too. The hair-possibly got mussed in the windy conditions that day- I think the effort was to make it that wavy look that pervaded in the 40's. Glad you voted this one in, as I did as well- and of course HOBAC, where all things spring-brought me here.
