Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie likes to wear a lot of dark colors on the red carpet, so it was a welcome surprise to see her in something other than black. The beautiful actress strut the red carpet in a gorgeous snow white Max Azria Spring 2009 one-sleeved gown looking statuesque alongside partner Brad Pitt who happened to be a good match in his black suit.
Angelina wore her hair pulled back in a sleek ponytail and accessorized with pearl earrings, a white HervÃ© LÃ©ger Spring 2009 box clutch and a pair of matching white satin peep-toe pumps.
If someone else had worn this dress, I’d probably found it just OK, but Angie is working the hell out of this dress. And her hypnotic gaze does the rest. Red carpets were invented for women like her.
A red carpet event wouldn’t be what it is if we hadn’t at least one celebrity go for the body-con HervÃ© LÃ©ger. Young Hollywood loves its curve hugging bandage dresses, so I was the last to be surprised seeing Amanda Bynes rocking a hot pink version from the Spring 2009 collection.
Amanda who is having the same hairstyle for ages accessorized the pink minidress with black sparkling Christian Louboutin slingbacks and a gold clutch. She should have matched her clutch with the black pumps instead. This would have given her outfit an Alexander McQueen feel to it making her attire less booooring.
Indeed it’s a VERY predictable choice and I am as tired as everyone of all the HervÃ© LÃ©ger overload, but I won’t deny that Amanda looked absolutely sexy in it. Like a real-life Barbie doll (which is not automatically a bad thing because you know we all loved and caressed our precious Barbies back then, didn’t we?).
I will give this one to Amanda for reviving old childhood memories, but this is certainly the last time I’m putting a celebrity wrapped in HervÃ© LÃ©ger on the “Best Dressed“-list. Go and get yourself some creativity, Hollywood!
Amy Adams was her usual fabulous self looking flawless in a royal blue strapless cocktail dress from the Oscar De La Renta Pre-Fall 2009 collection. The redhead adorned her dress with a silver brooch at the hip and accessorized with a matching silver clutch and Christian Louboutin Criscross Slingbacks.
Loving the natural make-up, especially the nude lipstick. Beautiful!
Anne Hathaway was undergoing a major style improvement in 2008 and the trend seems to continue in 2009. The lovely actress looked stunning in a black and white folded strapless dress from the Gianfranco FerrÃ© Spring 2009 collection. I am loving the Cruella de Vil vibe of her dress.
Anne completed her look with sleek hair, hoop earrings, a transparent belt with a golden buckle and black platform peep-toes.
Eva Longoria sticked to her usual short cocktail dresses and brought some much needed color to the red carpet by wearing a turquoise Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 halter-neck dress with gold embellishments at the neck and waist.
It’s a typical Monique Lhuillier design and a bit of a safe option for Eva, but you really can’t blame her for choosing it. It’s a beautiful dress and the gold embellishments against the rich turquoise color remind me of summer, so I will forgive her for being a tad boring. This time.
See how Eva elongated her legs by wearing nude Christian Louboutin pumps? I would’ve ditched the yellow clutch for a matching gold one though.
Kate Beckinsale was beautiful as usual wearing what she wears best: figure-hugging strapless gowns. This chocolate brown J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2009 dress is a good choice, but I start to tire of Kate’s safe approach to red carpet fashion. I wish she’d let Anne Hathaway or Diane Kruger inspire her to change her dressing habits to being more adventurous when it comes to fashion.
Diane Lane & Josh Brolin
Many celebrities dress in black on the red carpet and end up looking boring and uninspired. If you happen to be Diane Lane however wearing a sequined black Monique Lhuillier dress with a black satin bow tied to your waist, there’s absolutely no need to worry. A good looking hubby on your side doesn’t hurt either though.
Writer Danielle Ward looked very elegant in her monochrome floral printed strapless dress which had a sweetheart neckline and a sparkling brooch attached.
