I'm not an awards show watcher. I just like looking at the pictures afterward to see the pretty evening wear and check if anybody managed something modest. There were a few, some good, some ok, and some not so great. Let's look...
The neckline is too low, but the sleeve detail is nice. The creasing makes it look to tight around her thighs.
I'm a big fan of the white-shirt-with-ball-skirt look but not THIS particular pairing. The shirt is too billowy for a skirt with this much volume at the waist. And the lack of accessories makes the whole look very unfinished. A gorgeous necklace or chandelier earrings and she would have been set. But Tilda Swinton rarely does accessories.
Again, the neckline is too low but everything else is lovely.
I had to look up who Melissa Leo is and haven't seen anything she's done but the dress is great and looks great on her. She's 51!
Meester screwed up this dress. Burberry styled this dress by scrunching the sleeves up to the elbows and adding a wide black leather belt. It looked AWESOME! Minus the edgy belt and tweak to the sleeves, the muted print falls flat. Would have been gorgeous had she worn it the right way.
This dress is a good example of trying too hard. I like the black lace over the colored cap sleeve, but the pleated part over the left side seems unnecessary. I'd have liked it much better with one more layer filling in the neckline and no pleated overlay down the front.
There were a couple of gowns I had to research. Most often, when you see something this modest from the front - it's backless. Anne Hathaway and Angeline Jolie wore such gowns. But apparently this Calvin Klein is not. Hurray! There were other pictures of her not looking so washed out but I wanted a full-length shot and this was it. Pretty fabric in the other pictures. I'd have added one cuff bracelet or super thin and simple lariat necklace but otherwise she was smart to keep the accessories simple.
