Old Hollywood confiscated New Hollywood by the alimentary paste straps at the 73rd Academy Awards

Old Hollywood confiscated New Hollywood by the alimentary paste straps at the 73rd Academy Awards, wherever trendy celebs adopted the modest appearance of flappers, red-lipped '40s starlets, and Southern belles.
Best thespian winner Julia Roberts, United Nations agency generally attends awards shows in somber however classic robes, selected a hanging vintage Valentino from the '80s. The black column dress was increased by formed white piping and was apparently therefore tight that Roberts wanted the recommendation of her Best thespian precursor, Hilary Swank.
"Every time [Swank] passed American state, she would say, 'Breathe. simply breathe,'" Roberts discovered to reporters backstage. "Not very easy during this dress, however I'm doing the simplest I will."
Another Best thespian candidate wowed fashionistas together with her terribly own vintage Valentino: Laura Linney was spirited in her tangerine/red robe, that had tapered shoulder straps that were anchored by little bows. you'll be able to figure American state
's actress conjointly selected token makeup and a glamourous, reticular upsweep for her hair, a method shared by Catherine Zeta-Jones and Roberts.
The only 2 actresses United Nations agency appeared oblivious to the unhappy look of this year's Oscars might have adopted their daring vogue from years of creating music videos: Pop prima donna Jennifer Lopez and Icelandic chanteuse Björk each raised eyebrows — Lopez arrived in an exceedingly clear, smoky grey Chanel robe she (mistakenly) selected simply before the ceremony, and Björk tiptoed into the Shrine area clad in an exceedingly childlike robe created to appear sort of a swan.
Lopez's nipples were the talk about the ceremony, and cameramen rush to pan aloof from her bust as she walked onstage to gift the simplest Original Song Academy Award. Meanwhile, Björk — whose Dancer within the Dark tune was appointive  therein class — John Drew each scorn and praise for her downy feathered friend, that hid a faux egg that she had earlier "laid" on the red carpet. Mr. Showbizstaffers, though, for the most part in agreement that Björk's look due approval for being therefore, well, Björk-like.
Best Supporting thespian politico Kate Hudson wore one amongst the night's true missteps, a bland, fringed cowpuncher jacket with a train from über-designer Frank Stella ballad maker. Hudson's sometimes shiny blond locks were cooked into a nasty curly mess, style of like Dolly Parton's in nine to five, and cumulous on high of her head. She looked forty nine and frazzled rather than twenty one and happy.
Another of the night's fashion losers was Best Supporting Actor politico Joaquin Phoenix, United Nations agency materialized in an exceedingly rumpled white shirt (sans formalwear jacket) and therefore the worst bed-head this aspect of preschool. It seems that Phoenix had simply woke up before inward, therefore he merely force on his formalwear and ran out the door. If that's however very little his Academy Award nod meant to him, we're glad he lost to Benicio Del Toro.
The upset of the night might are Marcia Gay Harden's Best Supporting thespian figure, however her channeling of Hepburn circa 1947 was even as delightfully surprising. Harden, wrapped in an exceedingly cranberry Randolph Duke that hugged her curves, arrived with 2 decadent accessories: a shiny, red Wizard of Oz-type clutch and a rather massive bodyguard, courtesy of jeweler Harry Winston, who'd Lent her a massive diamond collar.
The Contender's Joan Allen was outfitted by Michael Kors, United Nations agency created the statuesque Best thespian politico a custom robe adorned with real coral beads. French thespian Juliette Binoche (Chocolat) caught many uncomplimentary remarks for her flapper-style black dress, feather headpiece, and multiple pearl strands, however we have a tendency to thought she looked attractive. Likewise, Ashley Judd's plastered back 'do and diamond headbands were pure Roaring '20s, and it worked well for the cheerful thespian.
