The Best and Worst of Oscar Fashion
Simon Doonan names the 10 most noteworthy looks of the night.
The rocking-a-new-look award: Oddly tousled Scarlett Johansson in her cranberry backless lace Dolce and Gabbana.
The F-YOU award: Florence Welch looking defiantly hip and gorgeously dégagé in her Valentino.
Jack on Will and Grace always maintained that good acting was only a function of good hair. Et voila! The niftiest-coiffure award: a tie between Michelle Williams, channeling Jean Seberg, and Cate Blanchett channeling Andy Warhol.
The dared-to-wear-Dior award: Nicole Kidman, fabulously oblivious to the raging John Galliano scandal fou in her strapless bejeweled couture number.
See you next year!
