Oscar's Fashion Hits & Misses
mediaexpress.reuters.com: Hollywood's A-list stars flaunted gold and silver gowns on the Oscar red carpet on Sunday, doused with a generous helping of diamonds, feathers, sequins and symbolic blue ribbons on the world's most cinematic runway.
Emma Stone, nominated for best actress in "La La Land" sparkled in a 1920s inspired gold fringed Givenchy gown, as "Hidden Figures" supporting actress contender Octavia Spencer opted for a silvery Marchesa adorned with a flounce of feathers.
Resembling a real-life - though much more chic - Oscar award, actress Jessica Biel sported a shimmering gold-copper Kaufman Franco beaded gown accessorized with a bold African-inspired necklace from Tiffany's. Fashion experts agreed the elegance quotient was high, with nods to "old Hollywood glamour" updated for today.
Velvet ruffles from Oscar de la Renta cascaded down last year's best actress winner Brie Larson in an old Hollywood glamour look with a dramatic decolletage.
Isabelle Huppert, nominated for best actress for "Elle" showed her typically refined style in a long-sleeved silver Armani Prive gown, while Ruth Negga, also nominated in the same category for "Loving," chose a long-sleeved lacy Valentino in the fashion house's signature vibrant red.
