Normally, after a major award show, I would go through an array of looks and dresses and critique them all, but for this round, since I didn’t personally catch the entire show, I’m going to tell you whose look I drooled over and whose I could have absolutely done without. From what I did see, though, I observed that nude, blush, and maybe even some plum were the dominant colors of the night. The nude and blush tones are beautiful, but they’re the ones that you have to be very careful with because if you wear a nude color that is similar to your own skin tone, then it’s nothing but a wash out because there’s no contrast and the color falls flat. However, when done right, it’s elegant, beautiful, and looks so feminine and fresh on whoever is wearing it. With that being said, I absolutely adored Charlize Theron in her Dior Couture number. She is so dedicated to the designer and for good reason. The high slit up the front, the plunging neckline, the embellishments on the dress, the airiness of it, the beautiful train, and the overall uniqueness of the design was jaw-dropping and one that I fell in love with. Her hair was simply swept to the side and she looked so striking.

Also, the layers of squared satin material leading up to the bodice, which was glittery, and the sheen capped sleeves were just all wrong. She had too much jewelry on with such a sparkling gown and the exposure at the neckline for someone her age just didn’t look right. I didn’t like her hair and the whole look honestly appeared uncomfortable on her. Overall, this didn’t hit the mark. I think an Old Hollywood glam hairstyle with a black gown that was more sophisticated would have been appropriate for her. Thoughts?
