Jennifer Hudson

Colour: No- very harsh on her and not working .
Shape: A big no here again:
She has a full bosom, is short in her waist and has a fuller point, which are enough reasons to stay clear of such a shape of dress. She doesn’t have enough space in her waist to go for an Empire line, but as well to pull off this detail in her waist.
The neckline is good, but not in the way it is integrated in this dress she wears- it doesn’t work for her. She needs strong structure under her bosom line e.g. a corset so her bosom is not only lifted but it would give her a much-needed waist. Or she gets the structure by wearing a dress with strong straps with a nice square or scoop neckline. This dress covers her bosom line too high up and with the additional drapes around her bosom it creates even more volume, which she clearly doesn’t need. Also the highlighted waist line seems to be connecting her bosom with her tummy- really not flattering. Last but not least, the hemline is far too long for her- how did she manage to walk on stage to present?
Style: Her haircut is great and also her make up- it gives her a groomed youthful look. The jewellery accessories are good in shape but should have been in a deeper colour, so it would have tuned the dress more down.
Overall Rating: 2** Two Stars
James McEvoy

Colour: The black and white looks too harsh for his warm hair colour- he should have chosen either a different colour in his tie or chosen a bow instead that could have been also in a different colour or had just an accent colour.
Shape: It looks like if he just thrown this suit on for the evening without a care in the world- he makes it look like uniform for that evening. There is not so much wrong as there is so much right with this suit. His sleeves and trousers legs are too long, which could be a strong indication that this suit is borrowed for the night.
Style: Besides that his shoes look knackered, tired, old and wrong they look as well if they are the only pair of black shoes he owns, which just underlines the effect of wearing someone else suit for that night. His image doesn’t create an image of substance and credibility or worth remembering it- could be anyone.
Overall Rating:2** Two Stars


Jessica Alba

Colour: Beautiful deep and soft colour for her, and such a good choice for her advanced pregnancy.
Shape: The Empire line is beautiful for her shape and the plumes are nice details around her décolleté line, which provide her as well with more volume to balance with her curves. But unfortunately the top part is not sitting in its place. It looks like if it dropped a few inches. It is not well fitted around her décolleté and bosom line.
Style: Her golden jewellery is beautifully softening the bluish tone in the dress and also not overpowering her pregnancy. Her hairstyle gives the dress a more casual feel to it, which complements her upcoming motherhood.

Overall rating:
4**** Four Stars
Julie Christie

Colour: The tomato red looks pretty on her, but the pink shiny gloves and shoes are a definite no and it looks terrible with the tomato red.
Shape: The dress shape on her looks great. It accentuates her body at the right places and gives her a beautiful silhouette. Even the drapes on her dresses are working for her without making her look un proportional or unbalanced.
Style: Her hair style, necklace and even her clutch bag are all working with the dress and would have made a look fabulous. So, what happened here? it was a disastrous idea to choose long gloves for this dress and then as well in this shiny pink. Unbelievable there were even matching shoes with the gloves available. It makes her look like a witch forgot her hat at home. She started so well with the choice of dress in colour and shape and is quite unbelievable how she managed not only to kill it but as well making her look a total embarrassment.
Overall Rating: 0* No Stars
