Silver and artistry sparkle on Oscar’s red carpet

Monday, February 26th, 2007


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Gold may be the color of the coveted Oscar award but silver gowns dazzled the red carpet at the world’s leading film awards, while those featuring intricate bodices, beading and master detail proved that exquisite workmanship always merits a second glance.

Helen Mirren, of “The Queen,” chose a pale gold Christian LaCroix gown with a lace bodice for the evening, while Cate Blanchett chose a stunning silver beaded one-shoulder Armani Prive that captured the right amount of shimmer and elegance.

Kirsten Dunst’s pale silvery blue gown featured delicate sequins and feathers at the hem, while Jennifer Lopez’s Grecian-inspired Marchesa gown in a pale silvery shade of lilac was adorned with five tiers of sparkling beads at the neck.

“That’s more fun than anything,” said Lopez, of dressing up for the Oscars. “That’s the part I like.

The quality of craftsmanship on the red carpet was stellar. Elaborate bodices, whether beaded or featuring intricate haute couture workmanship, made a big showing this year, proving that haute couture handiwork is always glamorous.

Rachel Weisz’s Vera Wang in champagne satin featured a crystal-encrusted bodice. Of getting dolled up on Oscar night, last year’s best supporting actress said, the final product is “a fantasy version of ourselves!”

Best Actress nominee Penelope Cruz wore a dusty rose Versace with an intricate ruched bodice, while Beyonce Knowles’ mint-colored Armani featured a strap on one shoulder adorned with matching beads. Sheer pleats at the bodice of a terracota Zac Posen worn by Gwyneth Paltrow captured interest and elegance.

“There’s a real appreciation of artistry,” said Hal Rubenstein, In Style magazine’s fashion director. “It’s all about the detail work of a dress. It used to be it was enough to get away with sequins. Nowadays, even the sequining needs to be intricate.”

Britney’s breakdown!

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

On the evening of Feb. 16, Britney Spears quietly entered her Malibu home. As her mother, Lynne, approached her, Britney, her eyes glazed and face swollen from crying, slowly lowered the hood of her gray Fila sweatshirt, exposing a bald head.

“Oh, baby girl, what did you do to yourself?” a shocked Lynne Spears asked as she wrapped her arms around Brit.

What has Britney done to herself?
