Jessica Biel was one of the red carpet standouts at the Golden Globes on Monday night in a glimmering beaded Valentino dress and intricate Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings — too bad that Hilary Swank also looked glam in the same “vintage” dress just 3 years ago at the 2004 Vanity Fair Oscars party. Did she not note Reese Witherspoon‘s Chanel dress mix-up from last year’s Globes? As for Valentino, reps for the house say “Valentino dresses are timeless and each woman brings to them her own interpretation. . .two beautiful actresses can be different and great even in the same dress.”
February 27th was the day of the Césars. The French Oscars have had their share of controversy (there was a viral video of Emma Thompson rescuing a lovely Miss with a serious wardrobe malfunction, on the very César stage!) but there’s also something fashionable to talk about!
Diane Kruger was one of the presenters that night and she chose an interesting (to say the least about it!) dress for the occasion: Valentino! And not just any Valentino dress, a gown signed by Alessandra Facchinetti from the Spring 2009 Ready to Wear collection. (more images after the jump!)
The fashion world may have disapproved Alessandra’s collection, but here’s Diane saying different! The dress looked rather strange to my eyes, somewhat slouchy but it did raise my eyebrows and interested me in a way a classic dress wouldn’t have. How do you feel about this dress and Diane wearing it?
