I'm short of time so here, quite simply, is a rundown of my favourite looks from last night's Oscar ceremony.
I love how Hilary Swank (above in Gucci) can completely alter her otherwise athletic build and sometimes masculine appearance to look so elegant and glamorous and above all wonderfully feminine.
Celine Dion, fresh from the birth of her twins looked radiant in Armani Prive.
Halle Berry looking feather-light and ethereal in this beautifully embellished Marchesa number.
Cate Blanchett in Givenchy Haute Couture. Enough said. She never steps out of line. She can do no wrong.
Another satisfying moment for me was seeing Mandy Moore (above) appear in the Monique Lhullier gown that you may remember me blogging about almost six months ago -
Footnote: Whoever are in charge of Jennifer Hudson and Scarlett Johansson... you can go right ahead and fire yourselves... Hideous.
