Oscar Fashion Police Call Hits and Misses
It was a fashion face-off on the Oscars® red carpet.
George Clooney's girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, shined in a black and silver gown by Naeem Khan. The body-skimming dress with a sheer back looked almost identical to Halle Berry's gown. The Oscar® winner wore a low-cut black-and-silver striped number custom-made by Versace.
KCBS reporter Suzanne Marques told INSIDE EDITION, "I think both Halle and Stacy went for, 'I'm going to stand out, I'm going to look different.' Both of them basically had the same idea in mind because it was hard to tell the difference."
Was Anne Hathaway's pale pink Prada gown a little too revealing? Her structured gown had darts on the side of the bust, giving the illusion that her nipples were showing through her dress.
Cosmopolitan magazine Editor-in-Chief said on CBS This Morning said, "This is one of those cases where you really do think, what was she thinking? Those are the darts, those aren't her real nipples."
Metallic gowns were a big trend of the night. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts sparkled. Jennifer Hudson stunned in a long sleeve blue metallic gown by Roberto Cavalli.
Salma Hayek's basic black Alexander McQueen dress was adorned with an embellished gold neckline.
Kristin Chenoweth also opted for a black gown, but hers had an embellished bodice. Moments before showtime, our cameras caught the actress wearing—of all things—Uggs. INSIDE EDITION caught up with Chenoweth's stylist, Sophia Banks-Coloma.
Banks-Coloma said, "She had two minutes to get inside. Obviously, running in Christian Louboutin's that are this high with a huge dress, is a disaster waiting to happen."
The ladies of Hollywood showed off their shoulders in pale-colored strapless gowns. Amy Adams arrived in a powder blue-grey gown by Oscar de la Renta.
Marques said, "I loved Amy Adams. It was so over-the-top, any other woman might get swallowed up in it. But Amy just looked like a beautiful, classic, Oscar® princess."
There were also some pops of color on the red carpet. Jennifer Aniston and Sally Field in gorgeous head-to-toe red. Kerry Washington wore Miu Miu. She looked stunning in the coral creation with a beaded bodice.
Jennifer Garner was radiant in a custom-made gown by Gucci. The dress had a dramatic back with billowing ruffles.
History's youngest Best Actress nominee, Quvenzhane Wallis was adorable in her age-appropriate dress. She accessorized with her favorite puppy dog purse. The 9-year-old showed off her handbag to fellow nominee, Jessica Chastain.
Mike & Molly star Melissa McCarthy's custom-made gown missed the mark. Critics say the grey silk-jersey dress was unflattering for her figure and called her sky-high hair a huge distraction.
