Last night’s Oscars, were a thumbs up for women over 40. Overall, we think the ladies looked Fabulous! Red was the color of the evening, with most mature stars, choosing very simple, styles and luxurious fabrics.
Here are our picks for Best Dressed Celebrities, who have passed the over 40 mark:
Once again, Helen Mirren, really sparkled with class and flash in her gorgeous red satin gown with 3/4 glittering crystal, openwork sleeves, by Georges Chakra.
She mentioned that since she her most recent film is another period piece, she liked that her dress was powerful and attention grabbing! Her hair style was classic and simple and complemented the dress perfectly. No old lady up do for her!
Wearing her namesake color, Ruby Dee certainly looked Red Hot. Like Helen she wore red satin and looked very sleek and elegant. Here’s one example of where grey hair looks great because of the chic cut.
Kelly Preston, wore this wonderful saffron gown that stood out nicely from the crowd. We like that she kept this hard to wear stapless look free of a necklace and instead wore just a touch of sparkle …those beautiful earrings.
With this Grecian-inspired gown, we think Calista Flockhart looked very pretty. (Has she gained a little weight? A little meat has made her look much more attractive!) Calista’s soft updo, was just the right thing to complement this soft,flowy, godess look! Love the interesting color combination.
We had to put this one in of Rebecca Miller. Here is someone trying to be different and show her creative side, but just not pulling it off.
If she had just worn the dress with the red bows and NOTHING else, it might have worked.
However, your eye does not know what to look at first. We are just so confused….should we look at the bows, the giant pins or the dangling earrings? And what was she thinking trying to pull it all together with those wicked witch of the west, black and white closed toes shoes????
This is a good lesson to show what can happen when you over do it.
When dressing up, if you think it might be too much, it probably is! To hear us talk more about the Oscar fashions tune into our conversation with Radio Talk Show host, Shannon Conner from WTBQ.91.1 FM.
