The Desperate Housewives star rocked a dress by Elizabeth and Jenny and shoes by Brian Atwood at a 28th birthday celebration for her husband, Tony Parker. The ruching adds texture to this barely-there hue and gives the look visual interest.
At the New York premiere of her film The Bounty Hunter, Aniston glowed in a beautifully draped Donna Karan gown. Its peachy tone suits the star’s skin and hair color, and she accented it with peach blush on the apples of her cheeks.
Barrymore’s Atelier Versace gown (at the Golden Globes) was almost exactly the color of her skin. The asymmetrical neckline is right on trend, but the crystal embellishments on her shoulder and hip (which some called "porcupines") were a bit controversial.
This gorgeous gown from Christian Dior Couture, which Oscar winner Cotillard wore to the Met’s Costume Institute Gala, looks like water flowing down her body. Even when she’s standing still, it seems to be moving. Unusual for a red-carpet look, it has long sleeves, providing grownup coverage.
Femme meets fatale in this design by Jenny Packham, which Huffman (with husband William H. Macy) wore to the Golden Globes. The soft color, especially nice in soft chiffon, was given some edge with an encrusted neckline.
Beckham (at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar viewing party) said her dress, from her own fall 2010 collection, has a pixelated print inspired by a Dick Tracy comic. Her smoky eye works well with that graphic and the garment’s grey undertone.
J.Lo wore a showstopping Roberto Cavalli creation to amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS gala at Cannes. The visual interest comes not from color but from the amazing manipulation of the fabric, which adds texture. Note the casual hair style, which many of these stars opt for with their nude dresses.
At Us magazine’s Hot Hollywood Style Issue Event, Lopez made a feminine statement in Georges Chakra Couture. The patterning creates a great optical illusion, nipping in the waist, and her square, structured clutch continues the visual theme.
The motivational trainer (at a Golden Globes afterparty) wears a dress that would look great on many women: It offers a perfect to-the-knee length, a caramel color that goes well with her brunette hair, and a nice wave effect with the silver embellishment. Definitely a winner, not a loser.
The black underlayer in Stefani’s silver-white gown (from her own L.A.M.B. collection) gives it a little edge that suits this rocker. She looked a tad more naughty than girly at the Met’s Costume Institute Gala.
