Why does HBC always look like she's about to fall over?

Diane Gaston said...

I agree with your likes!
I thought Anne Hathaway looked beautiful in everything. I also loved Marisa Tomei's vintage gown.

I loved Cate Blanchette's gown and her hair was perfect.
Scarlet Johansen's gown would have worked if her hair had not looked like it got mussed.

Gyneth Paltrow looked dreadful, although she might have pulled off this beautiful dress if her hair and make up would have been different. (her singing was pretty bad, too. I don't recommend her to go on American Idol. She wouldn't make it)

I loved Mila Kunis's gown.

Helena Bonham Carter's dress suited her!

@Diane and @Heidenkind: I'm not sure what's with HBC. On one hand, she's consistent with this image she wants to project which is so at odds with the historical roles she plays. On the other hand, it's almost as if she's thumbing her nose at Hollywood and us.

Cate's gown was one I was conflicted about. When I first saw it, waist up only I thought: no way is the boob frame going to make the cut. Then when I saw the whole look, it grew on me. The lines are so flowy and elegant.

Gwyneth needed a good bra for one thing and better choice in accessories. She's so LOVELY, why this dress, why stand like that, why, why, why. And yes, she should stick to acting.
