I have a few things to note, before I post my favorites.
Black is boring, people. B-O-R-I-N-G. Boring. If you're wearing black on the red carpet at the Oscars, it says to me that you (and your stylist) lack both imagination and courage.
Dress your damn hair. Wearing an expensive designer gown with hair that looks like you just left your Pilates class is nothing short of appalling. You know who you are, Cameron Diaz.
Too much of anything is never a good thing. That goes for trains, feathers, and breast-plate-sized floral ornaments. coughRebeccaMillercough
And now, the envelope please.
An extraordinary dress. Just extraordinary. And Mademoiselle Cotillard wore it with such joy.
Elegant and simple and it suited Calista perfectly. And her hair was dressed to compliment her dress, the way God intended.
Red was the color of the hour, and Katherine's was one of the highlights. And look how beautifully her hair frames her face.
Heidi could wear a potato sack and still be hotter than a firecracker, but this dress was positively regal. Plus, it was worn for a good cause. Frau Seal also gets snaps for her beautifully dressed hair.
Speaking of regal, Helen is the queen. She knows how to dress to emphasize the good things about her figure and to deflect from those things that don't need attention. And her hair always looks wonderful.
The only black dress that I found the least bit interesting, and I was surprised that Hilary played it so safe, especially after the stunning and unconventional dress that she wore last year. She's another one who always dresses her hair appropriately.
I wasn't crazy about Ms. Christie's dress, even though I give her mad props for designing it herself, but look at her hair. Isn't it fabulous?
