Vintage Oscars

Just a few comments on the Oscar fashions.
Penelope Cruz was dressed in a vintage 50's Balmain gown.

Miley Cyrus on the other hand wore a dress that seems like a copy (so much so that when I first saw the dress I thought "that looks like a vintage Dior"....well, except for the ugly belt) of a 1949/50 Dior gown seen here and here....or at least the skirt treatment.



My other favorites besides Ms. Cruz and Miley (I really did like the dress, just not the belt) were Kate Winslet, Freida Pinto, Amanda Seyfried (hated her shoes), Marisa Tomei and Phoebe Cates.
Diane Lane looked lovely, Evan Rachel Wood's dress was to die for, but the color did nothing for her and Queen Latifa looked fierce on the red carpet...not so much on stage.
Of course Angelina was stunning.

Wow, good eye on the Miley / Dior skirts. I thought her dress was cute, but overdone (especially the belt -- her mother had a similar ornament, wonder if it's a designer's signature?) and the skirt looked like a pinecone. I feel like I've been refreshed by looking at the Dior one.
