Oscars!! Part 6 (*and last) Red Carpet Fashion Reviews by Michaela Jedinak, UK Stylist and Fashion Pro

The OSCARS Red Carpet Style Review is finally wrapping up with Part 6 of the Oscar fashions as seen on the red carpet and Michaela Jedinak’s commentary on the fashion winners — and losers- for that night!
(She covered the Independent Spirit Awards, Grammys, SAG Awards red carpet reviews and the Gucci/Madonna Party at NYFW!) . Check out her site: www.joyofcolour.com
Celebrities reviewed in this final installment of red carpet events: Nicole Kidman, Katherine Heigl, Marion Cotillard, Javier Bardem

Javier Bardem

Colour: Looks fabulous on his stronger deeper colouring.
Shape: Loving it- well tailored and fitted for his shape and proportions- nothing is too short or too long or too tight. It doesn’t do his shape or proportions any harm wearing it more buttoned up, because his pockets are making sure that his look is proportional and well balanced.
Style: Just classy all around. The material has a nice understated shine, his shoes have old fashion feel but kept with the shape and look of his suit current. His hair and facial hair are contributing to his look and give him a charismatic signature look.
Overall Rating: 6****** Six Stars
Katherine Heigl
Colour: The colour is good, but not by having it so much of it. It is a bit too loud and bright for her and her age.

The fit is total perfection on her body. She is the perfect hourglass with a long waist, good size of bosom and long legs. The shoulder details provides a beautiful frame for her waist and train. Her waist is long enough to show off her bosom line and her legs are also long enough to create space between the top half of her body and her bottom half.
Style: The Maryln Monroe look is competing with the colour of her dress. It would have better to opt either for one or the other, but both together looks all to artificial and reminds of the “Stepford Wifes”.
Overall Rating: 5***** Five Stars

Nicole Kidman
Colour: It is not her best colour, but since she has such a porcelain skin and wears it with a plunging neckline it looks ok on her.
Shape: Her top half looks shaped and fitted but the middle part with her new gained curves doesn’t come off very well. Nicole doesn’t have much of a waist and this broader Empire line near her curves looks cramped and tight.
Since she is a very tall woman this Empire line makes her look unproportional on the lower part of the body.She should have been breaking the solid colour either by cut or pattern.
Style: Personally it was the biggest disappointment of the night for me. Normally Nicole is very savvy in her dressing and hardly puts a foot wrong. Now that she is pregnant I would have expected that she would chosen something fun and bright to celebrate her long expected pregnancy. Instead she opted for black, a boring cut and styled it with accessories that makes her look like a grim governess from the last century. It is a very ageing look especially when being pregnant.
Overall Rating: 3*** Three Stars
Marion Cotillard
Colour: The colour combination is nicely softened by the low décolleté line and given an nice lift with her red lipstick.
Shape: She is another one of the lucky women who have the so desired hourglass shape and therefore this mermaid shape fits like a glove on her figure. The mermaid details on her bosom are not overpowering. Also, they are given with her long waist enough space to stand out without competing with her mermaid train.
Style: Loving it because she opts for a style that is not main stream , which is in line with her role she has been nominated for best actress. Her open hair is casual and relaxed which is a nice contrast to this structured tight fitted dress.
It makes it look easy on her like a fresh breeze at the Oscar night. The golden necklace adds an additional sparkle and pulls the colour of the dress nicely together. The handbag blends in by colour but stands out by structure and shape. Though a new comer to the Oscars she already has perfected a signature look.
Overall Rating: 6****** Six Stars
