Dressed for the Globe – WOW

Now the stunners…

I’d start with:

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde:
I’ve no idea who she is. And then I found out that she’s the one in Tron. I’ve not seen that movie… but she definitely was a stunner at the Globe. Sheath dress… sparkly. Feels a little princess-y. You know… the ball gown types. But it suits her. And the sparkles seem to be in this season… as you’ll see further down this list. I actually would love to own this dress!

Design by: Marchesa

Amber Riley

Amber Riley:
Told you sparkles were in. And here is a woman who knows how to dress those curves. Being big isn’t a bad thing… you just need to know how to be dignified. Love the dress, love the belt and most of all – love the smile.

Design by: Oliver Tolentino

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson:
Is it just me who sees this trend? All the starlets showing off skin… and all the big stars wearing full length, demure gowns? Or maybe that’s not true… remember Halle Berry? Catherine Zeta Jones? (okay she was covered, even if in carpet)… Or the big ones have the better dresses? Oh never  mind… I just love this dress… very ‘spring’ types.
And I always though she had this made-for-sin body and face… like all the roles she plays… but she looks like cool, english maiden in this. Totally unlike Vicky of Vicky Christina Barcelona.

Designer: Elie Saab

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock:
I should’ve listed some better people here and stuff… but the thing is a lot of magazines are comparing Scarlett’s dress to Bullock’s and they vote for the former. I don’t think they are similar at all… except for the colour. And if you do by that, there are so many more actresses who have the same colour. Pastels seems to be in this season. But I vote WOW for Bullock too! Note the trail in particular? Very spring… reminds me of this Boticelli painting.
She has horrible posture though!

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman:
The beige parade continues… but it looks classy. Maybe it is the woman, maybe it is the dress… You decide.
I’ve always been a fan of clean lines. I’ve no idea why this has been voted a ‘miss’ though. It ranks in my WOW list.

Designer: Prada

Dianna Argon:
More pastels… there is something to be said for class.

Designer: J.Mendel

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria:
Now for some other extremes… black. The woman definitely knows how to put herself together.
Designer: Zac Posen


Sofia Vergara:
Okay… bold pink isn’t particularly a colour people dare to wear to such an event. It makes you really stand out (and can be a disaster as Julianne Moore found out). But with the right attitude and the body, it can look simply stunning.

Angelina Jolie
Might as well get this out of the way… I’ve been saving her for the last, mainly because I’m undecided if this should be ‘Oops’ or ‘WOW’. I guess it is all about her attitude… and the way she carries it off… puts this in the WOW. What do you think?
I guess it was the expression on her face that made me pause… she looks… pinched? Skinny? Is this the other extreme of pregnancy or is it the result of having too many kids running around the house?

Jane Krakowski

Jane Krakowski:
Talking about pregnany, Krakowski simply looks glowing. Perhaps it is the pregnancy or that vibrant colour and the blond hair, but it just radiates happiness.

Mandy Moore:
She hasn’t particularly been one of my favorite actresses but this dress – LOVE IT!

Helen Mirren:
Classy, simple, elegant, stylish. Age doesn’t really have to make you go frumpy.


Tina Fey: 
Simple and beautiful in an L’Wren Scott
