YBF's FAB 5 Best Dressed Oscar Looks!
Mar 08 | by Natasha
YBF has chosen our Fab 5 of Oscar night out of the celebs usually featured on YBF. We've got the fashion deets under the cut... We chose folks who didn't stick to a completely safe look and still pulled it off nicely:
This one's either love it or hate it. And WE love it. This purple and black Givenchy Spring 2010 Couture masterpiece was rocked effortlessly by Zoe Saldana. She rocked the matching purple suede Givenchy shoes the same way this look was rocked on the runway. Layers upon layers of frills, a slit, a metallic strapless bodice that looked like an orangescicle--it was all a fashion risk and we can appreciate that. Our vote is that she pulled it off and it looks gorgeous on her.
Nicole Richie rocked a fitted floor length extended train metallic black, blue, and silver gown by Reem Acra. Never seen Nicole in a look like this so we like the risk. The taut hair bun and dramatic eye makeup scream Audrey Hepburn. We actually love the wide sleeves and boatneck cut as it offers a vintage feel. The mirror black and silver clutch and open back set off this look nicely.
One of our fave looks of the night was Jennifer Lopez. This Armani Prive' gown reminded us of Lady GaGa's Armani solar systemesque Armani gown from the Grammys. But THIS is a version we can easily love. The gathered train was decked out in Swarovski crystals and the bust was detailed with a fold that went directly into the train. Gorgeous. And the color is iridescent pink--which always pops on Jenny's skin. Def a bit risky with the wow factor train and embellishments. And she pulled it off.
Queen Latifah stepped out on the carpet in this lavender and crystal one shoulder Badgley Mischka gown with a train. No 3 piece suit for Queen, she was all about showing off her womanly curves last night. And she did so nicely. The minimal Chopard jewels and accented shoulder and waist are the perfect topping for her shape and skin. Loves how Ms. Latifah glams it up so easily despite her day to day tomboy look.
And we had to throw Jenny in here twice. Her Vanity Fair afterparty black Gucci dress is fab and caught our attention instantly. Basic black goes glam with the dramatic shoulder to waist frills on just one side. With added cut outs on the other side for more drama. And, of course, she's got the body for it. Loves it. Honorable Mention: Oprah in Carolina Herrera. Our complete red carpet coverage from last night is HERE.
