After much consideration, I have come the conclusion that Natalie Portman in vintage Christian Dior was my #1 pick for best dressed last night.
While the dress was not necessarily gasp-worthy (aka, Gwyneth in a good way, Angelina in a bad way), there was just something so incredibly timeless. I mean, Vintage Dior from the 50s? You can’t go wrong. I’m not sure if it would be the best dress to wear for a Best Actress nominee, but for someone presenting she could not have looked more elegant or graceful.
I think it may have something to do with this comparison I keep drawing in my head…
Other dresses that made my list:
Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford, obviously. By far the most fashion forward choice of the night.
Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli.
Shockingly….Stacy Kiebler in Marchesa. Some hated this look. I personally loved it. Fresh off the runway from New York last week.
Last but not least…my girl forever and ever..Meryl Streep in Lanvin.
In her own sweet words, her final comments in her Best Actress acceptance speech:
"I want to thank all my colleagues. All my friends. I look out here and I see my love before my eyes –my old friends and my new friends. This is such a great honor, but what counts most to me is the friendship and the love and the sheer joy we have shared making movies together my friends."
