They’re winners in our book.
Not one of the nominees for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards was a Black actor or actress, but at least presenters¬†Halle Berry, Jennifer Hudson and Oprah¬†turned the night out in their stunning gowns.
Does Halle Berry ever have an off moment at an award show? She could wear a potato sack and still look amazing, but she swept down the red carpet in a gorgeous¬†embellished¬†Marchesa gown.
The only thing that’s killing me about her look¬†is the bottom of this dress. I’m not sure if it was the¬†way she walked that¬†bunched up the tulle in the very front or if it’s gathered that way to show off the beading at the bottom, but that effect makes the detail look¬†a curtain that was thrown on as an after thought. I wish it pulled down a little more because the train is fabulous. Hopefully that’s just the picture.¬†
Jennifer Hudson continued to remind us all that Weight Watchers has done her body good and wore a plunging, tangerine 2008 Spring Versace gown blinged out with Neil Lane diamond earrings and bracelets.¬†She looked amazing;¬†a huge improvement from the Oscar de la Renta dress and space-agey python bolero she wore to her first Oscar appearance.¬†
Now some people are getting on her for pairing purple Versace heels with the bright dress, but¬†I actually loved the color contrast:¬†
What I couldn’t get into was her hair which was¬†fashioned in a¬†¬†pin curl, around-the-way ponytail.¬†
A halter gown¬†begs for a up-do, but a simpler one would’ve been much more sophisticated with this ensemble.
Oprah shimmered in a satin and beaded Zac Posen gown to present the Best Documentary Award. The off-the-shoulder, 3/4 sleeve, full skirt silhouette seems to be one of her favorites and the style always makes her look striking and regal.
