Christian Dior Spring 2010 Collection

Rating: ★★★★☆

Let me start off by saying that John Galliano x Christian Dior is untouchable. I don’t think there will ever be a collection I won’t find myself in love with. Christian Dior plays in its own league and, for me, is the definition of high fashion, couture & French elegance. For Spring 2010 Galliano sticked to the lingerie theme he first introduced us to in his Fall 2009 couture show where models were pantless and everything was presented with garters and semi-sheer knickers.

What I also really liked were the film noir references. Galliano said he designed this collection with actress Lauren Bacall in mind. Hourglass silhouettes, lamé dresses, short trenchcoats, transparent chiffon gowns – all in all a solid, romantic & feminine collection with the usual, flawless quality you’ve come to expect of Dior and its mastermind Monsieur Galliano. Already looking forward to Spring 2010 Couture.

Mischa Barton and Freida Pinto wearing the same Christian Dior Spring 2009 green strapless dress

A photoshoot vs. photoshoot fashion faceoff. Mischa Barton wore this green fringed and embroidered strapless dress from the Christian Dior Spring 2009 collection in a photoshoot for Marie Claire’s March 2009 issue. It was not the first time Mischa has worn this dress. Back in January, she wore the same dress when she attended the Christian Dior Spring 2009 Haute Couture Fashion show in Paris.

Freida Pinto has donned the same dress in her spread for Cosmopolitan India’s March 2009 issue. This is the second fashion faceoff from that photoshoot.

The dress looks good on both Mischa and Freida, but I kind of like it more on Mischa as she is really working the dress and seems much more comfortable wearing it.

Who wore Christian Dior better?

66th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2009 – Best Dressed

by Profashionelle on January 12, 2009 · 0 comments

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde in a lavender Reem Acra Bridal Spring 2008 gown at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2009

Rating: ★★★★★

It was all about Olivia Wilde in her strapless lavender gown for me. She was nothing short of SPECTACULAR in that exquisite dress with a voluminous ruffled skirt and I adored the soft pastel color on her.

Even though 2009 has just begun, I am pretty sure this dress is going to be in my “Top 5 Dresses of 2009“.

Amy Adams

Rating: ★★★★★

Amy Adams was pure magic in her black strapless gown which had a voluminous skirt and leaf embellishments all over the dress. Amy opted for emerald green leaf-shaped earrings (♥ ♥ ♥) to complete her look.

It was a safe choice for Amy to wear this dress, but she looked SO, SO great in it, I couldn’t care less.

Anne Hathaway

Rating: ★★★★★

Anne Hathaway was almost equally stunning in her midnight blue strapless gown from the collection. The dress’s sparkling bodice was shining against Anne’s flawless alabaster skin and her stunning earrings got me gushing over her perfect ensemble.

Loved the red nail polish as well.

Laura Linney

Rating: ★★★★★

A striking Laura Linney outshined most of her younger colleagues on the red carpet in a yellow one-shouldered gown.

The asymmetrical dress was embellished at the waist and beautifully draped at the hips. I also loved Laura’s lovely leaf-shaped earrings (♥).

Kate Winslet

Rating: ★★★★½

Kate Winslet was my No.1 girl crush last night. She was such a stunner! I’m so glad she won both awards for “Best Supporting Actress” and “Best Actress“. Her acceptance speech was so touching, I had to dash away one or two tears of my own.

While I will admit that her black strapless Yves Saint Laurent isn’t the most exciting dress, I am convinced Kate carried it off with more elegance than everyone else who attended the Golden Globes last night. She has so much class. I ♥ you, Kate!

January Jones

January Jones in a blue Versace Spring 2009 dress at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2009

Rating: ★★★★☆

January Jones channelled old Hollywood last night in her sky blue one-shouldered dress and blonde retro waves.

Her dress had pockets at the side and gold lining along the folds. Quintessential Versace and I absolutely LOVED it!

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria in a red Reem Acra gown at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2009

Rating: ★★★★☆

Eva Longoria turned heads in a dramatic red strapless Reem Acra gown which had a long mermaid hem and scalloped edging on the bodice. The Desperate Housewives star completed her look with silver jewelry (loooove the flower-shaped earrings) and a Daniel Swarovski clutch.

This type of dress is favored by Eva for big events such as the Golden Globes. Though being a slightly predictable choice, no one is going to blame Eva for looking so stunning in this red gown.

Rumer Willis

Rumer Willis in a purple Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2009 gown at the 66th Annual Golden Globes 2009

Rating: ★★★★☆

Miss Golden Globe 2009 Rumer Willis opted for an eggplant Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2009 strapless gown which she accessorized with a black jeweled belt and looked absolutely enchanting in it.

Salma Hayek

Rating: ★★★★☆

Salma Hayek sure knows how to dress her assets. The racy actress strut the red carpet in a figure-hugging ivory Bottega Veneta dress and accessorized with Boucheron jewelry and a grey Bottega Veneta woven box clutch.

Evan Rachel Wood

Rating: ★★★★☆

Evan Rachel Wood looked absolutely svelte in a sparkling black tiered gown which had a plunging neckline and floral appliqué at the waist.

A great look for Evan. Maybe next time we’ll get to see a little more color on her.

Jennifer Morrison

Jennifer Morrison in a blue Oscar De La Renta Pre-Fall 2009 gown at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2009

Rating: ★★★★☆

Jennifer Morrison opted for some color on the red carpet and donned a cobalt blue strapless ruched dress. The actress completed her look with an elegant updo and beautiful matching Lorraine Schwartz earrings.

This dress was one of my favorites of Oscar De La Renta‘s Pre-Fall 2009 collection and it’s great to see someone like Jennifer pulling it off effortlessly.

America Ferrera

America Ferrera in a taupe Oscar De La Renta Pre-Fall 2009 dress at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2009

Rating: ★★★★☆

Kudos to America Ferrera for NOT wearing black. She was also one of the few who did not opt for floor-length gowns. Instead America went for an asymmetrical taupe knee-length dress from the collection which she accessorized with silver jewelry and matching peep-toe pumps. Gorgeous!

Mary-Louise Parker

Mary-Louise Parker in a cobalt blue Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2009

Rating: ★★★★☆

Mary-Louise Parkerfelt blue” last night and opted for a cobalt blue strapless dress which had asymmetrical tiers cascading down from the bodice with a floaty chiffon train at the bottom. The actress completed her look with a Mary Norton clutch and Chopard jewelry.

I wasn’t too fond of the blue eyeshadow though.

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore in a light blue John Galliano for Dior gown at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2009

Rating: ★★★★☆

Drew Barrymore was delicate in her dusty blue John Galliano off-the-shoulder gown. Most people weren’t discussing her dress though, but her big messy hair. Personally I didn’t really like it, but apart from that Drew looked to good to not being on the “Best Dressed”-list. But I am still not sold on the red clutch, too.

Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale in a white J.Mendel gown at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2009

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Kate Beckinsale is starting to annoy me with her really booooring dress choices. Yes, she looked great in that white strapless dress from J.Mendel (again!), but her dresses are all the same. Strapless, figure-hugging and often white. And those ruby red chandelier earrings didn’t do anything for me either. Start reading some fashion blogs, Kate!

Beyoncé Knowles

Beyoncé Knowles in sparkling Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2009

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Beyoncé Knowles in was also very predictable. The singer left her alter ego Sasha Fierce at home and turned to her old bling bling “Look, here I am!“-self with a faible for too-tight-to-stand-straight-in-it type of dresses. I liked her more when she tried the risky route (think Gareth Pugh).

Beyoncé’s necklace was to die for though, so she hits the last place on “Best Dressed“.
