Absolutely! The always-dependable black dress takes a back seat this year, and jewel tones like yellows, greens, blues, reds, purples and one pink dress will explode. Whites and creams are very popular for the Oscars, too — because it appears sophisticated and winning.2.Who are the top three stars that always dazzle you?
In life, Cate Blanchett has worn the most daring, most memorable dresses to major red-carpet events. Charlize Theron — often in Dior — never, ever disappoints, but perhaps my all-time favorite Oscar dress was the yellow one that Michelle Williams wore the year she and then-boyfriend Heath Ledger were nominated for their roles in Brokeback Mountain. If given the opportunity to attend awards shows a little more often, Michelle would outshine all.
Of this year’s actress nominees, I imagine that the best-dressed order would look like this (beginning with my top choice): Anne Hathaway, Penelope Cruz, Angelina Jolie, Amy Adams, Taraji P Henson, Viola Davis, Kate Winslet, Marisa Tomei — and an honorable mention to Freida Pinto.
3.What male stars stand out in the crowd? Always?
Clive Owen. Because he’s quirky: Robert Downey Jr. And because he’s way, way out there: Mickey Rourke.
4.Do you think up and coming designers will dominate the runaway or the traditional tried and true?
I think theVersaces and the Diors will still be prevalent, but designers like Marchesa(a bit beyond up-and-coming) will make a splash.
5.What can we expect for hairstyles?
Hair will be up, up, up. Though I wishAmy Adams would wear hers down.
