Anne Hathaway

Rating: ★★★★☆

The 63rd Annual Tony Awards took place yesterday and the lovely Anne Hathaway was by far the best dressed at this event. Anne wowed the crowds in an elegant black strapless Oscar De La Renta Fall 2009 dress which had a feathered voluminous skirt and sheer tulle underneath. The actress opted for a soft, almost not-there makeup and instead focussed all attention on her to-die-for red satin Casadei platform slingbacks. A sleek updo and stunning diamond earrings completed Anne’s timeless look. Gorgeous, isn’t she?

Costume Institute Gala 2009 – Worst Dressed

by Profashionelle on May 5, 2009 · 0 comments

Keep hitting the F5 on your keyboard from time to time as I will be updating this post throughout the night. Best Dressed are here.

Rachel Weisz

Rating: ★½☆☆☆

It pains me to put Rachel Weisz in here, but she got it all wrong. Her lilac strapless Vera Wang tulle gown totally washed her out, the make-up was waaaay too dark (OMG!@ berry lips) and why, oh why, is that yellow fabric peeking out from under the hem? Sorry, Rachel, you can do so much better.

Kate Beckinsale

Rating: ★½☆☆☆

I’ve had enough with Kate Beckinsale. Her Marchesa Fall 2009 navy tulle gown was, as you would expect from Kate, over the top and unnecessary. I have never liked this dress in the first place, but seeing it on Kate makes it even worse because she ALWAYS plays it safe and never moves out of her comfort zone.

Rihanna wearing a black satin Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 tuxedo suit with voluminous shoulders

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Rihanna, please stop trying so hard. Don’t get me wrong, I love the runway look, but Rihanna makes it look so desperate for attention and so silly I can’t stand it.

I also find it always were amusing when at prestigious events such as the Costume Institute Gala where women are expected to wear beautiful, feminine princess dresses there are always 1 or 2 witty female individuals who opt out of this dress code. These women think they will come off so edgy and anti-establishment when they wear something super masculine like a suit or a tuxedo for example. GENIUS, girl! I bet no one else EVER had the same idea.

Leighton Meester

Imagine Leighton Meester‘s outfit without the leggings and you have a Best Dressed candidate. Leighton’s head-to-toe Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 look is a perfect example when too much becomes too bad. Such a shame!

Rating: ★★½☆☆

Anne Hathaway channelled 60s Jackie O chic and me no likey. I love Anne just as anybody else, but this eggplant Marc Jacobs bubbly dress does absolutely nothing for her. Not digging the hair and shoes as well.

Emma Roberts

Rating: ★★½☆☆

I know a lot of you will not agree with me for putting Emma Roberts on the Worst Dressed list, but let me try to get my point across. I absolutely ADORE this red bubble-shaped Atelier Versace Spring 2009 mini dress. In fact it’s one of my favorite from that collection. But you can tell from a mile away that this dress was the wrong choice for Emma. It’s a dress for a SUPERMODEL! And even then I think it would be quite tricky to pull it off because of the shape. Emma looks weird and unsure of herself, the dress owns her. Not good.

Why did Donatella give it away for Emma? I mean, come on! I would have LOVED to see it on Gisele, Linda or Naomi. They would have done this dress justice.

Marchesa is a red carpet favorite among celebrities. No major award show would be complete without at least one celebrity wearing one of the exquisite dresses. Georgina Chapman, one half of the designer duo, does a lot of PR work for Marchesa by wearing her designs only on every public event she attends.

Marchesa’s recent spring collection seems to be extremely popular with the rich and famous in Hollywood. See who’s been wearing Marchesa Spring 2009 below and vote for your favorite at the end of the post.

Anne Hathaway and Georgina Chapman wearing the same Marchesa Spring 2009 strapless gown

Anne Hathaway was the first to wear this exquisite strapless dress from Marchesa’s Spring 2009 collection when she attended the 46th New York Film Festival back in September 2008. The monochrome dress had 2 thigh high side slits and and floral embroideries on the entire gown. Anne’s look was perfected with an elegant updo and standout drop earrings.

Georgina Chapman who hardly wears anything else than her own brand for red carpet events, decided to up the ante and customized the same gown with gold embroideries to make sure she stands out in a sea of evening gowns at the 2009 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Georgina finished her look with black satin pumps and a matching black clutch.

Even though Georgina’s version looks more lush than Anne’s, I do prefer it on Anne. The embroideries on her dress are not so much in-your-face and Anne’s updo allows to see her beautiful neckline. 1:0 for Anne. What do you think? Is it Anne or Georgina for you?
