Oscar Fashion 2007 – The Mynagirl Fashion Report for the 79th Annual Academy Awards

Posted on February 2nd, 2007 in Fashion by mynagirl

Weirdest Trend of the Night: Bruise Chic

So, black and blue is an unusual combo, but both Maggie Gyllenhaal and Portia DeRossi combined them with elegant results.

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie wears the one-shoulder well, although I’m not sure if her hair accessory is feathers or an oil slick. I guess neither is very PC, though, given this is the first environmentally friendly Oscars, eh?

PortiaDeRossi

Portia’s slender frame works quite well with the cutaway and shimmery fabric.

Things I Normally Don’t Like That I Liked For Some Reason

GwynethPaltrow

I have never ever seen a Zac Posen dress I liked… ever… until this gorgeous terra cotta pleated sheath.

Celine Dion

Celine Dion

Celine Dion

I generally think Celine Dion dresses terribly and I don’t care for low-cut gowns, but this elegant emerald creation with just-the-right-amount of diamond bling was just perfect.

Anika Noni Rose

Ditto for Anika Noni Rose — not usually a big fan of the low cut but she looks radiant, or at the least irradiated!

Rachel Weisz

Rachel Weisz

I normally diss beigey neutrally colors, but this satin quicksilver Vera Wang gown on Rachel Weisz is absolutely stunning.

Stuff I Loved

Jodie Foster

Jodie Foster

Jodie Foster

Jodie Foster (also in Vera Wang) is fabulous in cornflower chiffon.

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon once again proves she’s not hurtin’ post-breakup — at least not visibly — in this plummy Nina Ricci.

Queen Latifah in Carmen Marc Valvo

Love the dress on Queen Latifah and absolutely adore anything Carmen Marc Valvo.

Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren

Simply stunning. Can’t say enough good things about Helen Mirren and her ability to just look flat out gorgeous.

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett models one of the nicer costumes from ’300′. No, seriously, she absolutely wins top Mynagirl honors with her unerring ability to look like a bronzed (or in this case, pewtered) goddess — top notch in Armani Privé.

Ryan Seacrest Underpants

Although normally I ignore men’s fashion during my little reviews, I have to give a shout out to Ryan Seacrest’s Calvin Klein underpants. Britney, take note, honey.

The Everpresent “Enhh” Category

Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith

If only they could’ve gold-plated her smile… Jada Pinkett Smith’s gown isn’t horrible, but she looks wicked tense.

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson

The flappity gold wings don’t quite work… I wish Jennifer had gone for the clingy diva look she wore onstage during her singing number — this one didn’t do anything for me. But she’s enjoying herself, for sure!

Beyonce

Beyonce

Hey, you can play Bejeweled if you get bored during the awards! Beyonce sports a beautifully colored but slightly too encrusted Armani.

Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz

Taking a cue from Bjork, Cameron Diaz wears her interpretation of a paper origami bird.

Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt

If the Devil is in the details, neither dress does it. Both Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt disappoint in Valentino and Calvin Klein, respectively.

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel

I know what boys like… I know what guys want… Jessica stumbles after her Golden Globe stunner, showing a little too much in her thin late-80′s fuschia-and-black halter.

Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz

Enh. Beige/peach/strapless/ruffled/yada/yada/yada. Penelope Cruz once again goes daring with the exact same type of dress she always wears.

ROFLMAO

It never ceases to amaze me that these people with all this money, with designers and stylists at their every disposal, can wear stuff this wacky.

Kelly Preston

Kelly Preston

Kelly Preston is wearing the Grrranimals Couture collection by Dolce & Gabbana.

CatherineDeneuve

Message for you, sir!! Catherine Deneuve models the “Sweet Concord” collection by Python Couture.

KirstenDunst

KirstenDunst

KirstenDunst

It’s like an Anime Horror Story… believe it or not, Kirsten Dunst’s schoolgirl-necked frock includes feathers at the bottom.

GiulianaDePandi

E! correspondent Giuliana DePandi models the Ace Bandage collection from Monique L’Huilier.

Steve Carell's Wife

Okay, I normally don’t pick on non-honorees/non-famous people, but Steve Carrell’s wife really looks like she’s just waiting for the rest of that dress to “accidentally” fall off in front of the cameras. Hmmm.. anyone know if she got a body piercing in Houston yesterday??

JenniferLopez

JenniferLopez

JenniferLopez

Modeling the “Mother’s Little Helper” collection is a slightly glazed-looking Jennifer Lopez, who continues to not quell rumors of pregnancy in her second empire-waisted Marchesa gown in a row.

Elisabeth Shue

Okay, I know Elisabeth Shue hasn’t really been in a major movie in a while, but… Dress Barn? C’mon, Liz!!

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman

And the Worst Outfit of the Evening goes to Nicole Kidman, who sports the “December to Remember” collection by Lexus.

Oh yeah, and in case you’re one of those people who, like, watches because it’s about acting — or something like that…
