Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet Reviews: Part 1, Michaela Jedinak, UK Stylist and Fashion Pro

The Red Carpet Style Review is back with Part 1 of the Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet and Michaela Jedinak’s commentary on the fashion winners — and losers- for that night!
(She covered the Grammys, the SAG Awards red carpet reviews and the Gucci/Madonna Party at NYFW!) . Check out her site:
Aaron Eckhart
Colour: The colours of his suit are good- they work well with his pale skin and eye colour. But the colour combination is just a bit too formal for this event.
Shape: The blazer seems to be far too long for his shape. He should have buttoned his blazer, so it would have looked more proportional. Also, you don’t wear a pin stripe suit with a formal shirt un buttoned- especially not at the beginning of the evening. He should have choosen a T-shirt or a casual shirt to wear with this formal suit if he did not intend to wear a tie and give the look a casual feel. It looks all too shapeless and messy around his neckline.
Style: Wearing a tie- shirt open, a pin stripe suit un buttoned and having his hair messy, I would have said he is leaving the event after a long night but not just having arrived. When you wear a pinstripe formal suit with a tie shirt you need to look sharp from top to toe and you can’t bend the rules by wearing the items differently. Though the shoes and belt work well together with this suit it doesn’t work with the shapelessness of his blazer and shirt and in the way he wears the clothes togehter at this event.

Molly Sims
Colour: Wonderful! Not only does the colour combination work with her colouring, she has chosen perfectly where to wear which colour. The yellow works nicely with her hair- the black tights give depth to the outfit and give a nice frame to the darker part of her hair and the grey and sparkly bit reflect her skin colour
Shape: Fantastic here again! The dress underlines her curves and gives her a beautiful frame. This dress with the dramatic top half is fabulous for smaller chested women. It is well tailored and sets off her waist and legs.
Style: Compliments for wearing tights with this dress and also choosing a dress with long sleeves! It makes the dress more credible when facing cold temperatures and bad weather, but also gives it as well an edge! Also, the sparkle on the top half is a great choice for an event at the beach it not only lights up your complexion with all the different lighting but also it makes you look radiant. Her hair style is also a perfect choice. Though groomed and styled it is a casual hair style which doesn’t mess it up too much if the wind blows into it. It will remain look all natural- effortless groomed. The accessories are complementing the look and not competing with the dress. Really well done here!

Patricia Clarkson
Colour: It is good that she is wearing black as an accent colour and as well away from her face. Though grey looks good against her red hair it is missing some colour. The red lipstick is not enough and therefore this colour combination is more draining her than making her look radiant.
Shape: The neck and shoulder line give her a beautiful frame on top and balances nicely with the lower part of the dress. She has not only a beautiful waste but she is also long waisted, so she can take the detail in her waist line. The pleats make the dress as well fashionable and work nicely with her legs. But the dress is not only tight around her breast but very see through since you can see the pattern of her bra shining through. It is also not well fitted since it creases under her armpits and under her breast line.
Style: This structured dressy outfit is paired with the right style of shoes but makes it all look unfinished because of the missing tights. You can’t wear such a dress with bare feet- it needs nice elegant frenchy tights with an interesting twist in pattern and style, so it gives the dress a femme fatal characteristic, which would have complemented the look. It looks all a bit as well too naked for the given weather at that day. Also, she missed out on crucial accessories like handbag or jewellery.

Rainn Wilson

The colours look ok.

: Well, apparently he opts for the “nerdy” look, but then the clothes look all far too neat for it. It looks like he is more trying for this look, but not getting there though going for all the typical characteristics I don’t care by wearing a waist coat that is far too small for him, a pressed shirt that it far too long; trousers with turn ups and still too long and wearing a “3days” beard. The jacket is the only thing which fits the bill for the look he is going for. But all in all the clothes make him look awkward because they are not one thing or another.
Style: The style he was going for was good for the occasion and weather but was for the stated reason not accomplished.
Overall Rating: 2 ** Two Stars
