Oscars 2006 Fashion
Reese Witherspoon looked AMAZING. She wore vintage 1955 Christian Dior, (which she apparently found in a vintage store in Paris and had people fix it up to its original condition,) and looked like royalty. If you can, go find an HQ photo of the dress, looking at it close up will totally awe you. And once again, her smile is just so sweet and relatively natural compared to other stars.
Nicole Kidman wore Balenciaga. Supremely elegant in typical Kidman fashion.
Maggie Gyllenhaal wore Bottega Veneta. She wasn't overly fancy but I love the chiffon and the way she seems to be seemingly carefree.
Keira Knightley also looked STUNNING in Vera Wang. The dress fitted her so well. And she's got one of the best made-up faces there, with eye shadow courtesy of Chanel. This is def one of my FAV looks.
Rachel Weisz wore Narciso Rodriguez. Ok so this dress looks mega boring and plain in the photo, but if you see walking on stage for her acceptance speech for winning Best Supporting Actress, then you'll see the dress is actually really sophisticated. And of course, let's not forget she's seven months pregnant!
Ziyi Zhang in oh surprise surprise, Giorgio Armani. The dress looked great on her, but maybe it's time to try a different designer?
Jessica Alba in Versace. I'm not sure how I feel about this. I mean, the dress fits her scarily well, but that hairstyle is awful on her, making her look older than necessary.
Uma Thurman in Versace. This time, I'm surprised that Versace can look this sophisticated. Uma looked amazing, but maybe because this is not her 'year' (in terms of awards) so not too many people paid attention to her. And her whole hair and makeup was just unbelievable.
Jennifer Aninston in Rochas; Felicity Huffman in Zac Posen; Hilary Swank in Versace. Aninston and Swank looked beautiful, but I'm not so sure about Huffman's dress.
So many reviews are raving about Michelle William's yellow Vera Wang gown, but personally I don't think it was the best dress there. I didn't like the shoulder/neck bit of the dress.
And finally, well, Charlize Theron probably should pick a slightly more practical and less stiff dress for next year, and Jennifer Lopez really needs to rethink her whole color scheme, in particular how tanned her face should be!
