With all the pressure to strike the right style note at this kickoff to the Hollywood award season, Lawrence broke the ice: “I don’t really know what `haute’ means,” she told E!
Hal Rubenstein, editor-at-large of InStyle, said designer Raf Simons did enough to differentiate them. Cotillard’s had an asymmetrical hemline and was more ethereal, while Lawrence’s was a more structured ball gown.
There were many stars in fiery hues as they chatted through chattering teeth at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Temperatures were in the 50s, hardly the norm in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Danes said she had some challenges getting dressed for an awards show a month after giving birth to her son. “I am very strapped into this dress. It’s Versace and they are masters of illusions,” she said after her win.
Also in Versace but without the love from Douglas was Halle Berry, who wore a one-shoulder printed gown with a fuchsia-and-blush print. The floral ballgown by Carolina Herrera worn by Lucy Liu was a more interesting choice, but, she said, it will probably be up for watercooler debate.
Jennifer Garner had on a burgundy-sequin strapless gown by Vivienne Westwood, and Taylor Swift had on a square-neck, deep-plum gown by Donna Karan. Naomi Watts wore a long-sleeve, open-back gown by Zac Posen, who called the color “Bordeaux.”
But Rubenstein said this red carpet wasn’t about trends. He was impressed with the diversity.
“You had Sienna Miller’s girlie Erdem, Julianna Margulies‘ sheer Pucci, and Jessica Chastain in that stunning seafoam green Calvin Klein _ there wasn’t one trend there,” he said. “They all stand out on their own.”
Chastain’s halter gown was custom-made for her by designer Francisco Costa, and Julianne Moore said she sent an email request to friend Tom Ford to make her gown. She wore a black gown with an open cowl back and contrasting white around the waistline.
Show co-host Tina Fey showed up in a L’Wren Scott-designed cream gown with black-lace embroidery, and her on-camera partner Amy Poehler wore a black tuxedo suit _ with a neckline that showed off an 83-carat diamond lariat necklace by Chopard.View Entire Story
