Any thoughts on the dresses ?
Have to say, I hated Linda Evangelista's kaftan thing, not very keen on Penelope Cruz's fluffy feathery dress. Cate Blanchett looked great. Katie Holmes/Cruise looked bizarre, imo - she looked lovely, but the dress was weird. Hated Gwyneth Paltrow's dress - the photo on the Mail site makes her hips look huge, and I'm sure they're not.

hi jn,
agree don't like gwynnie's 'nude' frock
also meryl's strange ethnic necklace is really not good IMO

nicole Kidman looked fab. Can't find a picture of Katie Holmes. Cate Blanchett looked great. Did the little girl from LMSunshine choose her own dress do you think?

MrsJohnCusack Mon 26-Feb-07 10:29:54

ooooh yes
now I though Helen Mirren looked lovely, as did CAte BLanchett (she's so beautiful though).

what did you think to Nicole Kidman's? She looked less like the undead than normal, but I'm not sure I can cope with those weird bow affairs on people's dresses. Also not sure on P Cruz's, quite liked the bodice but the fluffy stuff was strange. Also don't think she should have her hair tugged back.

liked Reese Witherspoon's, also liked her hair,

HATED Beyonce's

MrsJohnCusack Mon 26-Feb-07 10:30:33

oooh yes also hated Kirsten Dunst's and her HAIR was appalling

Meryl streep looked like a bag lady

JackieNo Mon 26-Feb-07 10:30:54

Yes - not v stylish for the Oscars. Bit too daytime, I think.

cremolafoam Mon 26-Feb-07 10:31:47

cameron- interesting but a bit weddingy
prefer her blonde
nicole lovely hair
jodie grey- why?

MrsJohnCusack Mon 26-Feb-07 10:31:56

oh (you'd think I could put this all in one post) loved Rachel Weisz's frock

can't find pick of Katie Holmes

paulaplumpbottom Mon 26-Feb-07 10:32:08

Maggie, Kate & Penelope looked fabulous. What was Nicole Kidman thinking?

JackieNo Mon 26-Feb-07 10:32:21

And didn't Jennifer Lopez look old.

JackieNo Mon 26-Feb-07 10:33:10

Actually I'd originally tried to link to the Daily Mail's pics, but the link wouldn't work - they've got Katie Holmes on there, but not on the actual oscars site.

paulaplumpbottom Mon 26-Feb-07 10:33:53

I can't find one of Katie Holmes anywhere

cremolafoam Mon 26-Feb-07 10:34:03

kate wynciettte- in pale pastel
a lot of pastel and nude -yuk

JackieNo Mon 26-Feb-07 10:35:45

I quite liked Kate Winslet's - not desperately keen on the colour, but I think she carried it off well.

paulaplumpbottom Mon 26-Feb-07 10:37:56

I thought her look was classic. I liked the color, very diffrent for her.

cremolafoam Mon 26-Feb-07 10:39:32

portia de rossi
a stick in bin bag

penny lope cruth- is so beautiful

JonesTheSteam Mon 26-Feb-07 10:39:47

Thought Reese Witherspoon, Helen Mirren, Cate Blanchett and Jodie Foster looked lovely.

Meryl Streep -
Gwyneth Paltrow - another
Didn't like Anne Heche's dress - that big black butterfly bow was weird.

Nicole Kidman - loved the colour but what was that thing growing out of her neck?

southeastastra Mon 26-Feb-07 10:41:35

they all look quite boring/styled to death apart from faye dunaway, weren't there any really bad ones?

ledodgyDave Mon 26-Feb-07 10:42:02

Lol am I the only one that before clicking on 'The Smiths' in the Jackieno's link and wondered what the hell Morrisey was doing at the Oscars!

southeastastra Mon 26-Feb-07 10:42:34

i did that too ledodgy

JonesTheSteam Mon 26-Feb-07 10:42:36

We could have done with a 'Bjork-wearing-a-dead-swan' type dress just to liven it up, really!!!

Lucycat Mon 26-Feb-07 10:42:53

I liked the green of Celine Dion's dress

Reese Witherspoon looked as gorgeous as usual, but who has told Cameron Diaz that she looks better as a brunette? wrong!

paulaplumpbottom Mon 26-Feb-07 10:43:34

I think Meryl Streep must have been trying to make a "I don't take all of take seriously" statement.

JackieNo Mon 26-Feb-07 10:45:11

Yes - I liked Celine Dion's dress - lovely dark green.

JackieNo Mon 26-Feb-07 10:45:33

I wondered about 'The Smiths' too.
