Michelle Williams at the Oscar nominees luncheon: adorable or too precious?

Here are more photos from yesterday’s Oscar nominees luncheon in Beverly Hills. I always think this must be one of the best events during the awards season – you don’t have to wear a gown, you don’t have to pose on a red carpet, you get to eat lunch with friends and other talented people, and you pose for a big “class photo” at the end. It seems more low-key, and as such, it’s never a big fashion event. Still, it’s nice to look at the photos. First off, here’s Michelle Williams, back to her beloved pale colors and Mia Farrow-in-1973-styling. Michelle is actually wearing a Victoria Beckham dress! Eh, I still don’t like it on Michelle.

I love Glenn Close’s face, and I love her talent. I’m happy she was nominated for an Oscar this year. But dear God, that is one ugly coat.

I love this color on Melissa McCarthy.

Can we talk about how great Meryl Streep looks? She’s so beautiful. I love her hair these days, and Meryl isn’t a hair person. This look is perfection except for the panty hose-with-open-toe shoes thing.

I actually like Rooney Mara’s outfit here. The blazer is Thierry Mugler and the jumpsuit is Asos. The pants need to lose an inch or two, though.

Viola in too-bright Juan Carlos Obando. I love her in bright colors, but this is just too “look at me!” for my tastes.

Octavia Spencer looks great here. I love her hairstyle!

And here’s a little Demian Bichir, because I haven’t been paying enough attention to him. He’s fine, isn’t he?

    Michelle dress will be good if she was a ten years old attending to a party.

  2. brin says:

    That’s what I thought…Michelle doing her Mia Farrow imitation….ugh.
    Meryl and Octavia look great!

  3. podzol says:

    Demian Bichir looks finnnneee (so did Gary Oldman! And er…Jonah Hill to a certain degree). He’s also hilarious in a DP30 interview done with David Poland as part of an Oscar campaign/talk.


    And you know Moody Rooney is not getting any more popular when even-tempered movie journalists/Oscar bloggers tweet how they’re over her sulky demeanor at these events…

  4. Lis says:

    (1) It’s probably just an unfortunate photo, but Michelle Williams seems to have a very, very wide stance.

    I can hear my late grandmother screeching and dragging out The Ruler to smack her into a better stance.

    (2) Don’t like the dress – either in its own right or on her.

    She’s campaigning like a demon for the Oscars, along with Brangelina, Clooney etc., and it’s annoying the heck out of me.

    Is it too much to ask that, if you insist on campaigning, to be subtle? And I highly doubt she’s as delicate as her campaign portrays her.

  5. CTgirl says:

    Michelle Williams keeps dressing like a first grader and acting like a virginal widow. So tired of this lame schtick.

  6. RobN says:

    Michelle’s act is starting to get very tired. I can’t really figure out why people like her. I’ve never seen any evidence of personality and the “I’m a fragile victim” routine wears on me.

  7. Euphorima says:

    The styling of Viloa’s dress is absolutely beautiful but I agree that the colour is too bright.

  8. normades says:

    Octavia, getting it perfect as usual.

  9. Tanguerita says:

    I hate this dress on Michelle, it make her look like she doesn’t have any neck at all. And rainbow clouds, seriously? (or whatever it is). What is she, five year old? Ugh.

  10. chloe says:

    I love Viola’s dress, along with Melissa and Octavia and yes please more

  11. Aiobhan says:

    I think Viola looks stunning. I hate the color pink but it looks awesome against her skin.
    I want Octavia and Melissa’s dresses, eventhough Melissa’s could have gone up half an inch. Other than that they both hit it out of the park.

    I am thinking that this Demien can be my new Antonio because this man is fine. I even love the pocket square.

    Patricia Mara- 1 step forward 10 steps back. Give it up!

    Meryl is not a fashionista and neither is Glenn. They can do no wrong in a my book. Even though I will admit that Glenn’s coat is as ugly as sin.

    Michelle is just oatmeal: beige,bland, and unfortunate. So is Patricia but I like Michelle so I can cut her some slack… for now.

  12. Tiffany27 says:

    Finally some Bechir love. That man is sexy.

  13. Nanea says:

    Michelle’s dress would have looked good on my daughter, last year, when she turned 11.

    I don’t get Rooney: she’s always slouching, and then she accentuates her bad posture/shoulders by wearing that! In the group pic I saw, the 360° at the LA Times, it looked like she didn’t belong, there was such a huge space to either side of her.

    I like Olivia’s dress a lot, and would have liked Viola’s, if the brightness had been toned down a notch or two.

  14. buell says:

    Why in the world does Michelle have her legs spread open like she is getting ready to take a piss?

    Rooney Mara looks like something my cat buried in his litter box this morning.

    But Melissa, Meryl, and Octavia look fabulous.

  15. Jules says:

    Awful dress, and why are her lips always pursed weirdly like that? Does she hate her teeth??

  16. Marianne says:

    Why can’t Meryl dress like that at award shows?

    Viola’s is personally my favourite look at this event. Glenn is thw worst.

  17. Katie says:

    Ugh, Rooney Mara looks like an alien

  18. HappyJoyJoy says:

    Ugh, Michelle Williams… That fragile delicate thing she’s working with has been old for so long. I am over her. And Yes, Demian Bichir is a sexy beast.

  19. Jinko says:

    Wish I could figure out why Michelle is always so weird looking, but I can’t. She creeps me out, and I don’t exactly know why.

  20. Agnes says:

    Michelle’s dress is so… blah she needs more UMPH, personality-wise, fashion-wise etc. Geez. And Glenn Close’s outfit – holy shit, it’s horrific. I don’t get it. These people have money – pay someone to make you look nice, buy flattering clothes and don’t wear clothes that make you look like THAT.

  21. Julie says:

    the post is awful but even with a perfect pose and a perfect body this dress would look funny.

    i mean for a little girl it would be very cute. (probably costs thousands of dollars though)

    i think michelle has a cute face and she really pulls of the short hair but that dress…

  22. Bird says:

    I love Michelle’s dress ……. for a Care Bear.

  23. imabrat says:

    Leave it to Beckham to make a babydoll dress. I can’t imagine that dress looking good on anyone above 11.

  24. lucy2 says:

    I can usually get on board with Michelle’s personal style, but I do not like this at all.
    Meryl looks amazing! Viola, Melissa, and Octavia look great too.
    Rooney’s pants looks stupid, but I kind of like the B&W look. I think her eyebrows are too light for her hair now though.

  25. kimberly says:

    at first I liked that she loved her hair short. After years of these short cuts, she’s looking more and more like Carol Brady. For reals. Can we get a split screen please?

    Her style never changes, it’s lucky for her that her personal style is making a come back and she’ll be considered retro.

  26. marie says:

    What is with the “little girl” look? She wore that daisy dress to the Oscars a few years ago and it was awful! Rooney Mara…yuk, go back to Mars.

  27. Delta Juliet says:

    I don’t mind Michelle’s dress SO much, but the collar kills it. Yuck.

  28. Camille (The original) says:

    Melissa McCarthy, Meryl and Octavia look the best here. They all look lovely. The rest ‘meh’.

  29. Mitchell says:

    Rooney Mara is trying so hard to be edgy and punkish. She is not. LOL why is she trying to hard to look like some bad-ass chick who doesn’t care how she dresses? I hope she doesn’t come wearing a black dress to the Oscars, if she does, then we will know how hard she is trying!

  30. eva sofieh says:

    I like that pink dress. I hope she wear a color like this to the oscars. I am so tired of the black,white,red dresses.

  31. Dottie says:

    Grow the hair out and dress like a real woman, and the world will be your’s. Right now you look like you’re entering the convent, and this comes from a devout Catholic!!!

  32. original sandy says:

    well, i like everyone here except Michelle’s look and glen’s jacket.

  33. demian bichir says:

    I like everyone here even Rooney.

    Te quiero a morir Kaiser!

  34. Elizabeth Rose says:

    Michelle gives me the same vibes as Zooey Deschanel. I just can’t with them & their whole cutesy/kitschy shtick.

  35. Megan says:

    Why would Victoria Beckham put her name on that hideous dress?

  36. Katie says:

    I want to smack that smug smile right off her little face. And her dress looks like something my mom wore to school in the 60s.

  37. Zoe says:

    Octavia looks perfect. She really knows how to dress with good fashion taste. Classy.
