Oscar Fashion Moments: Women In Black
What do you do when you want to look classically chic at the Oscars? You give La Donatella a call, and go for chic strapless black gowns with fishtail skirts. Drew Barrymore (left in Atelier Versace) and Beyonce Knowles (in vintage velvet Versace) both went this route last year for their arrivals on the red carpet. They were blasted by some bitchy critics for being a bit dull (E! Fashion Police likened Drew to an old maid, but I don't have much faith in people who also thought this was a good look) but I think these timeless looks are good safe choices with an old-Hollywood vibe. Nobody ever accused Audrey Hepburn of being safe, and she always went for simple elegance and block colour. Though I always love it when celebs take risks, you can understand why they don't with so many fashionista bitches around and if they're going to go with a classic choice, you can't go far wrong with flattering black Versace!
