2007 Academy Awards Fashion Highlights
Oh the glitz! Oh the glamor! Hollywood stars arrived on the red carpet at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday making bold fashion choices with Jennifer Hudson in her brown ruched gown with a metallic python bolero by Oscar de la Renta generally considered one of the worst dressed and Cate Blanchett in a stunning one-shoulder Swarovski crystal mesh gown by Giorgio Armani Prive one of the best. Here they are now for your viewing pleasure in all of their multi-million-dollar glory.
Gwyneth Paltrow made a strong fashion statement in Zac Posen's apricot spider-web tulle-and-chiffon gown, and Nicole Kidman made a bold color choice with her bright red Balenciaga halter gown with an oversized bow at the neck.
Reese Witherspoon's strapless Nina Ricci with a tiered bottom was a deep purple, and Jada Pinkett Smith wore a corset-style strapless gown in gold lame by Carolina Herrera.
Penelope Cruz's strapless Versace was a blush color with an intricately swirled tight bodice that exploded into an exaggerated skirt.
Jennifer Lopez's lilac Marchesa gown had an antique jeweled neckline that created a chain-link effect.
Beyonce's Armani gown also had an interesting neckline. It was basically a light green strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline, but there was a strand of stones over one shoulder.
Giorgio Armani attended the ceremony, presumably in his own design. "It's very important to be elegant and simple rather than be flashy," he said.
Many top male celebrities chose classic tuxedos by Armani, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Wahlberg, Clint Eastwood and Martin Scorsese.
