Tina Fey's dress is a mix between a 1950's Cocktail dress and some Victorian underwear (Crinoline). Cute, but not really my cup of tea.
What is an Award show in Hollywood without a Classical Dress! And by Classical, I don't mean that it's a classic (which of course it is); I'm talking about the original sense of the term, meaning inspired by the Ancient World.

Now this dress I like. The shape and pattern is very reminiscent of the 1930's and the Art Deco movement.
This could make a nice Snow/Ice Queen dress...
Asymmetrical, futuristic designs are very trendy right now, just as platform shoes are. I wonder then, since Kate Hudson looks like she has just walked off a Runway, why some supposed "Fashion Experts" have bashed her outfit? Just a thought.
Personally, I call this outfit "Deep Space Bride". (For those who need me to paint a picture, it's a pun on Deep Space Nine - duh!)
This dress looks like it came from a Manga! Just look at the impossible Décolleté!
Ah! What a pretty spring flower. But it's only January!
You can always count on Cher to wear something outrageous, but I seriously would wear that dress. I love the asymmetry, the mix of lacing with antique looking lace, and the pointed bodice. It is Steampunk Goth on the Red Carpet.
"It's a bloody coral reef!" That was my instant reaction when I saw this dress. I'm not too sure about the one on the hip, which looks more like a half bumroll, but you have to admire the workmanship! Wish I knew how to make that. I bet Drew is thinking "Some form of rock - Check!" (Yes, I know coral is actually not a rock, it's a living organism).
Now I want to conclude on a more serious note. Did you notice the ribbons many of the stars wore? They were to show support for Haiti. I haven't mentioned last week's Earthquake on this Blog be cause I frankly didn't know what to say. After all, I'm always talking about fun things relating to costumes, and there is nothing fun about a disaster such as that one. Haiti was already not all that strong politically and economically before, but now they are completely beaten down by the events. So I take this occasion to encourage all my readers to find a way to help. My Sweetheart and I have chosen to give money to two charities: the Red Cross, for immediate support, and Oxfam to help rebuild once the crisis is over. Lets count our blessings and help those in need; costumers are generous people too!
