Directors Guild Awards Red Carpet 2011
We sound like a broken record (cue the under-25s: “What’s a broken record?”), but too many women try to pull off neutrals without taking their own skin tone into consideration. This neutral shade has a yellow undertone and Amy’s skin is pink. Put them together and they spell “unflattering.” If she really wanted a neutral, she should have looked at one that worked with her skin tone rather than against. In short: We no like.
She looks really great here: dramatic, sleek, eye-catching. That one pic of her husband staring at her with pride is seriously adorable, even though they both have reputations for having enormous sticks up their respective asses.
Ohhhhh, SWEETIE. That’s just wrong, dear. That dress doesn’t fit correctly and it’s not a particularly flattering dress anyway. The hair is just sad.
It’s not the most spectacular thing she’s ever worn, but she looks good. Classic and respectable.
If you saw her Style Profile the other day, then you’ll know that this is a very toned-down HBC. We’re curious how toned down she’ll be on Oscar night. Still, she remains true to herself, with the weird volume on the skirt, and the purse and glasses. She looks cute.
It’s a great dress, even if it’s a bit standard. We just don’t think the heavy black shoes were the way to go.
You could pick this dress up at any dress shop in America for under a hundred bucks.
This is not 1989 and you are not Diane Keaton.
Just to demonstrate how loving, kind and fair-minded we are, we finally saw Black Swan last night. The very second the screen turned to white and the credits appeared, Tom turned to Lorenzo and said, “What a silly piece of crap.” Lorenzo, who had already put on his hat, gloves, and scarf ten minutes before, replied with “Get me the hell out of here.” Yes, kittens. We hated the movie.
BUT! We love this dress and we love her in it and we think it’s the best she’s looked in a while.
It’s a pretty dress and she’s got one hell of a body, but someone needs to tell her that dresses don’t have to be super skin-tight ALL the time.
