Age Appropriateness For The Win At The 2011 Oscars

Feb 28, 2011 By Vaneza

Maybe I’m being a little harsh here, but the looks at the Oscars were quite average last night. Yes, Natalie Portman was pregnant (and glowing) but we found her gown to be a little bit of a snooze-fest. If there was one theme that rang true throughout all our (few but) favorite looks, it was definitely age appropriateness.

At just 14, nominee for “Best Supporting Actress” Hailee Steinfeld won my vote! Steinfeld wore a Marchesa gown paired with shoes and a clutch by Salvatore Ferragamo. I loved the simplicity of her hair and how youthful she looked. There was no Miley Cyrus-like outfits here, just sweetness, which I loved!

Next was the gorgeous Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Couture accessorized with Neil Lane jewels. I loved the color of the dress and the draping along with the lace detail. Her hair, styled by Mara Roszak also complemented her look all together. Kunis was chic and sexy without being overly dramatic, unlike her character in “Black Swan”.

And lastly there was Gwyneth Paltrow, who at the age of 38, looked nothing short of fabulous! Although her musical performance on last night’s Oscars was sub-par, the Calvin Klein Collection dress she rocked on the red carpet was not. I loved the cut of the gown and how it complimented her hair and skin. I also enjoyed the brightly colored jewels by Louis Vuitton that Paltrow paired with the dress. The little pops of color proved to be just the perfect amount of fun.

So there you have it, our few, but favorite looks from last night. What do you think?
