The 16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards gala took place at The Beverly Hilton Hotel last night, and we have some bona fide A-listers who kept the fashion flag flying very high. Marion Cotillard can always be counted to hit it out of the ballpark, and she did just that in a gorgeous, edgy midnight-blue Christian Dior dress with metallic silver pointed pumps by the same designers. She also totally pulled off that ’40s hairstyle. Amy Adams also looked like a retro goddess with flowing titian hair and a fitted black Oscar de la Renta column with a mesh panel, with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Tiffany jewels, and a YSL bag. Brava! The surprise entry on this list is Helen Hunt who went the sexy route in a slinky silver dress and strappy heels. Way to work it out, lady! While we’re certain that these three really deserve to be up here, we have a couple of entries we’re not quite so sure about, and need your help with.
Kerry Washington is so pretty and we love her black-and-white printed Monique Lhuillier dress. The Louis Vuitton shoes and clutch kind of ruin it for us, though. We feel the clutch clashes with the dress and the shoes are too twee for the whole thing. Then there’s Clea Duvall in that very feminine pink, flowing gown. We’re just not sure about that material sprouting out of her shoulders. Besides, we could not find one photograph of her smiling. That stone-faced expression is what she appeared to have on the entire time, and when one’s wearing such a soft, draped, girly gown … you have to sell it.
