The pumps were previously sold by NeimanMarcus, but sold out shortly after Reese’s Golden Globes appearance. NET-A-PORTER is still selling a few pairs of these gorgeous D’Orsay pumps in black.

Bar Rafaeli

Bar Rafaeli looks stunning wearing Alberta Ferreti. But would you expect anything less from a supermodel like her?

Bar sure knows how to strike that sexy over-the-shoulder pose. Leo must be a lucky man.

Rating: ★★★★☆

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett was the epitome of glamour in this blush ruffled silk gown accessorized with Chopard gems.

No one could live up to Cate’s perfection, she was by far the best dressed on the red carpet making the rest of the ladies look like absolute fashion rookies. totally deserved. ♥ ♥ ♥

Rating: ★★★★★

Devon Aoki

Devon Aoki is also wearing Alberta Ferretti. The ombré silver sequined strapless dress looks great, but Devon somehow does not wear it with the confidence needed to pull it off.

The hair is another no-no for me, that hairdo is so pageant/prom cliché.

Rating: ★★½☆☆

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria looks flawless as usual wearing a gorgeous azure dress which she complimented with Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry.

I love the dress and the color is simply stunning, but I don’t think the dress works towards Eva’s body type. I prefer seeing Eva in cocktail-type frocks.

Rating: ★★★½☆

Julianne Moore

Blindness actress Julianne Moore went for big drama in a canary yellow gown. Unfortunately, the risk didn’t pay off. There’s too much going on on the dress. The black and yellow feathered detail is the worst thing about it. It reminds me of stuffed animals being pinned to her shoulders.

But to be fair, I think no one could’ve done that dress justice. At least not on the red carpet. This dress was made for catwalks and editorial photoshoots.

Julianne’s accessories however were exquisite. The actress finalized her risqué ensemble with a black Bottega Veneta knot clutch and beautiful Chopard diamonds.

Rating: ★½☆☆☆

Mischa Barton

Mischa Barton walked the red carpet in a midnight blue gown and a Chopard diamond necklace. The one-shouldered dress was a decent choice, but nothing overly spectacular.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman was a serious breath-taker in her purple ruffled cocktail dress. She accessorized her dress with diamonds from Tiffany & Co, a black belt, round black patent pumps, a black XL clutch and black nail polish.

I’m not too fond of the dress per se, but I am totally smitten with the striking color and Natalie just pulls it off with her radiating beauty. Plus, I’m loving her hair ♥

Oscars 2008 – Best Dressed

by Profashionelle on February 25, 2008 · 0 comments

Marion Cotillard

Marion Cotillard in Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2008 Couture - 80th Annual Academy Awards 2008

Best Actress winner Marion Cotillard blowed me away in this stunning ivory mermaid-esque gown. Chopard jewels and Sergio Rossi shoes finished off this beautiful red carpet ensemble.

Though I hoped Cate Blanchett would win the Oscar for Best Actress, after Marion’s acceptance speech I was totally in love with the French actress. She was just wonderful.

Rating: ★★★★★

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway in Marchesa Fall 2008 - 80th Annual Academy Awards 2008

Anne Hathaway was a vision of red carpet perfection glowing in a fire-red one-shouldered dress and sparkling with Harry Winston jewels.

Love the rose detailed one-shoulder strap. Anne completely cured herself from any previous Oscars fashion disasters. Gotta love it, right?

Rating: ★★★★½

Penélope Cruz

Penélope Cruz in Chanel Couture - 80th Annual Academy Awards 2008

Penélope Cruz was a feast for the eyes wearing a stunning navy, feather-trimmed Chanel Haute Couture gown. She finished off her look with beautiful Chopard jewelry. I especially fell in love with her ruby and diamond earrings. Lovely!

Penélope’s make-up & hair is simply fantastic this year, I love it & definitely prefer this look compared to the one she sported last year at the Oscars.

Rating: ★★★★½

Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl in Escada - 80th Annual Academy Awards 2008

WOW! Katherine Heigl deserves an award for the most daring color here. She stunned everyone in an asymmetrical racy red silk georgette Escada column gown. She topped off her look with matching red lipstick, Ryan Ryan jewelry, a silver clutch & shoes (both Jimmy Choo).

Loving the old school glamour make-up & hair!

Rating: ★★★★½

Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner in Oscar de la Renta - 80th Annual Academy Awards 2008

I really loved Jennifer Garner‘s amazing black silk taffetta Oscar de La Renta fishtail dress and the Van Cleef & Arpels vintage necklace just knocked me off my socks. Clutch by Roger Vivier.

I also loved Jennifer’s messy updo… but only from the side. If you see it from the front the streaks hide too much of her face.

Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes in Marchesa Resort 2008 - SAG Awards 2008

Rating: ★★★★½

Amanda Bynes was picture perfect in a stunning teal blue embellished strapless gown.

A perfect red carpet moment for Amanda and she definitely managed to stand out between all the big names. This is the best I’ve seen Amanda look so far and I hope she stays on that course fashionwise in 2008.

P.S.: I cannot tell you how much I adore Amanda’s do. She looks like a gorgeous fairy tale princess. Pure perfection & my red carpet favorite yet.

Ashley Tisdale

Ashley Tisdale - SAG Awards 2008

Rating: ★★★½☆

Ashley Tisdale looks very grown up and sophisticated in this beautiful white floor-length gown. Maybe it’s the new nose which makes her look so different here, but I think I also like her hair here. She still needs to learn how to strike a good pose though.

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria in Naeem Khan Spring 2008 - SAG Awards 2008

Rating: ★★★★☆

For someone as petite as Eva Longoria floor-length gowns aren’t easy to pull off, but the Desperate Housewives star does it with grace as per usual.

At this year’s SAGs Eva was giving us some old Hollywood glamour wearing a sexy ice white gown which gave us a pretty good sight on her fully-exposed back.

But the real deal about Eva’s look are her dazzling Verdura earrings if you ask me. Dramatic!

Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale in Luisa Beccaria Spring 2008- SAG Awards 2008

Rating: ★★★★☆

Kate Beckinsale was a glowing beauty in this lemon yellow strapless satin gown. She accesorized her shiny appearance with Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry.

Kate sure knows how to work the red carpet. I love the color of the dress and it’s a pleasant change to finally see some daring hues on the red carpet. Kate explains her color choice:

“It’s such a miserable day here I thought I’d bring a little sunshine.”

Marcia Cross

Marcia Cross in Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2008 - SAG Awards 2008

Rating: ★★★★☆

Marcia Cross turned heads by wearing a gorgeous teal strapless floor-length gown. The dazzling contrast between the color of the dress and Marcia’s shiny red hair is fierce.

Marcia complemented her draping frock with jewels from Lorraine Schwartz.

Marion Cotillard

Marion Cotillard in Nina Ricci Spring 2008 - SAG Awards 2008

Rating: ★★★★☆

Marion Cotillard was another red carpet favorite of mine wearing an amazing corseted, pleated and gathered strapless gown with Chopard jewelry.

Also thumbs up for Marion wearing her hair up; this was the best decision she could make for this dress. This cloudy grey gown needs space to make a bold statement. The only downside of Marion’s getup was the color of the dress – it was a tad boring.

Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Pfeiffer in Versace Pre-Fall 2008 - SAG Awards 2008

Rating: ★★★½☆

The age defying Michelle Pfeiffer chose to look absolutely fabulous by wearing a brownish monochrome cocktail dress. The dress is a bit of an understatement for such a big ceremony as the SAG Awards, but she makes it work for her.

Michelle finished off her look by pairing her dress with matching satin peep-toe Louboutins. Lovely!

Sophia Bush

Sophia Bush - SAG Awards 2008

Rating: ★★★½☆

Sophia Bush seems to have picked up on Michelle Pfeiffer because she also decided to go with a brown short strapless frock. While the color isn’t one I would’ve chosen for such an event, I do like the sheeny silhouette of Sophia’s ruched cocktail dress.
