81st Annual Academy Awards: Red Carpet Looks We Love
Feb 23 | by Natasha
The 81st Annual Academy Awards are still going on--y'all know they last for an eternity. But the most important part of the night goes down on the red carpet. Neither Taraji nor Viola copped a statue, but they looked fabulous nonetheless. Check out YBF's faves when you read the rest... Taraji P. Henson's Roberto Cavalli gown was ultra feminine and gorgeous. The tiers, the off white color, and train fit her perfectly. So did that insane Fred Leighton diamond necklace. She rocked a red Mary Norton clutch for a punch of red color. And while I'm mad at her for lifting up this dress to expose her Spanx and ankle tattoo for Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet, she looks so fab I'm letting it slide. Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto rocked a gorgeous blue John Galliano dress with a Judith Leiber clutch: LOVED the movie. And the beautiful co-stars. Nominee Viola Davis and her hubby hit the red carpet: I actually didn't love Viola's Reem Acra gown at first. But the more I look at it, the more I'm feeling it. Gold lame-ish fabric is extra hard to pull off on a red carpet like this. But the cut of the dress paired with her short curls and silver clutch works for her. John Legend and his girlfriend Christine hit the carpet. I usually hate brown suits for men but Johnny didn't look half bad. And Christine looked gorgeous this time around. Chick has amazing skin... Penelope Cruz always brings out the feminine layers for her red carpet gowns. This dress was simply stunning, mainly because it's vintage couture, lace print and embellished, and over 60 years old. Pierre Balmain Haute Couture is the design house and it is fabulous.
