Halle Berry at the Oscars 2013 – Best Dressed #3

After the shocker that was Halle’s Golden Globes dress, I thought I could never forgive her. Alas, she proved me wrong. ALL IS FORGIVEN MIZZ BERRY, for you have outdone even yourself with this custom Versace gown!

And yes, it was Versace she wore to the Globes, but I’ve spoken to Halle since – we’re best friends you know – and she apologised profusely and agreed with me, after I made her repeat it 100 times, that some dresses ought to be left on the catwalks. This one however, needs to be EVERYWHERE. It’s simply… stunning.

Black and silver is a winning colour combo for Halle, it sets off her dark features perfectly, and the boxy shoulder and delicate cleavage and back straps are added pizazz that makes Halle best dressed number three for me.

WELL DONE LOVE, well done. Now send Donatella a box of choccies. She did good with this one.

Fan Bingbing at the Oscars 2013 – Best Dressed #2

Blimey. This is one SERIOUS dress. And if anyone can get away with it, it’s Fan Bingbing. The Chinese actress is famed for her fashion choices as much as her film roles (not that I’ve seen her in anything, apart from on red carpets), and now with this fuchsia pink, structurally amazing Marchesa gown, from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, under Fan’s proverbial belt, she wins the best dressed number two award from me.

It’s so important to not let a dress wear you, and as massive and dramatic as this Marchesa number is, Fan takes control. She has a teeny tiny frame, so it could be a disaster – kind of like a really skinny woman looking over the top of a big pile of washing, but she ALWAYS owns the outfit she has on.

And for that reason, I admire her greatly.
