Oscar fashion: Did Tina Fey one-up Milla Jovovich in the glamour stakes?

Tina Fey is so funny and self-deprecating but generally bores me to tears on the red carpet. Last night at the Oscars, however, she brought the glamour in a big way in a custom, midnight-blue Carolina Herrera gown with peplum detail and Bulgari jewels. Of her look, Tina said, “I’m just thrilled to be wearing this beatiful dress. At first I feared the peplum and now I love the peplum. Tina was the only star who wore Herrera last night, and she wore it damn well. She also did a variation on big hair with an upswept do that set the dress off perfectly. This is probably my favorite look on Tina ever.

Meanwhile, Milla Jovovich did her usual supermodel thing in a white, beaded Elie Saab gown: “When I saw this dress I just fell in love with it… clean and radiant, and I felt like this color was perfect.” Oddly, the color is the only thing that seems off about this dress, but I do covet the asymmetric look on Milla. She oozes old school Hollywood glamour, but I really feel like she can do this look in her sleep, so it was a little bit underwhelming at the same time. However, Milla’s Jacob & Co jewelry made quite the impact, and her makeup was very dramatic and fitting as well.

Glenn Close, who was nominated for Best Actress for her role in Albert Nobbs, donned a forest-green Zac Posen strapless dress and matching tuxedo jacket. Of course, this look was age appropriate, and she stated that if she won, she’d celebrate by “By staying up later than usual.” Glenn’s Bulgari jewels were gorgeous, but I wish she’d done a little something with her hair.

Missi Pyle (The Artist) wore a a sea-foam green dress by Delfino, which was constructed from recycled materials and silk made from “cruelty free silkworms.” I wasn’t entirely crazy about this dress, but CB liked it. Overall, the hair, makeup, and dress looked a little too sororityish for my tastes, but Missi’s figure looked amazing.

    I thought Glenn Close looked HOT. I loved her hair. As for Tina Fey, as much as I love her, I hardly recognized her on the red carpet. I thought her look was way too severe.

  2. Aiobhan says:

    Milla was one of the best dressed of the evening for me.

    Glenn looks great! Hair, makeup, dress and jacket was great. She looked relaxed and refreshed. Cannot go wrong with that combination.

    Missy’s dress would be cute if she had it fitted properly at the bust and had a different hair style. But the color is fantastic against her skin. Her teeth though…..

  3. Ravensdaughter says:

    Tina looked fab-it’s nice to know that normal looking woman can still look that gorgeous…
    Speaking of gorgeous-Milla Jovovich just gets more beautiful as she gets older (although I bet she’s no more than 30). She must be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. She can’t act worth crap (“model-actress”), but she can stand there beautifully.

  4. Zozo says:

    Wait a minute…was the chick in the cruelty free silkworm dress in Bridget Jones diary????

  5. Asli says:

    Tina looks gorgeous. Glenn too.

  6. TruthTella says:

    Tina looks gorgeous, i love the big hair! But for me Mila just steals it, she looks so glam and i love the colour.
    Was Hellen Mirren at the Awards?! I love seeing her outfits.

  7. brin says:

    No, sorry, Milla looked stunning!
    Glenn looked great, too.

  8. Amanda says:

    Glenn showed up and I felt like she schooled everyone on how to dress for the Oscars. She looked great. I didn’t like Tina’s dress though… I thought it was oddly shaped and ill fitting. And Milla went overboard with the makeup. The lips would have looked good with everything else toned down, but the effect of all that bright blush made her look like a clown.

  9. Marianne says:

    I loved Milla’s dress. One of my faves.

    Glenn looked good. Age appropriate.

    Tina looked really good. The dress was a little plain, a little safe…but she looked fab in it.

    Missi’s dress looked kinda prom-ish to me.

    tina fey looked terrible. idk why this is even a comparison bur she looked like she gained weight and the puffiness of that most unglamorous dress didn’t help matters one bit. milla’s dress i like, especially when most people dressed in terms of meh last night. like they couldn’t even be bothered to look good. but i hated her retro hair and she is getting more and more masculine in the face as she ages. maybe if she put some pads in the bosom of her dress she could look womanly. because the lack thereof showed even when she was young. the only well dressed lady was pene cruz i guess and even she was chanelling grace kelly. why can’t we leave the past alone? i guess creativity is stuck in the past

    • CH says:

      Wow… listen to how you sound. Just, wow.

      Btw, Tina Fey had a BABY last year. I’m sorry she, and the other women you mentioned, have failed to appropriately conform to all of your persnickety bodily expectations of others.

      • anytime says:

        dude, it’s just a celeb gossip blog, that i sometimes stop by to kill time. it’s not that serious. and i didn’t know that tina fey had a baby and i couldn’t care less. anyhow and all the other celebs lose the pregnancy weight pretty quickly and i’m sure she could afford to have a trainer but she obv. doesn’t care so i don’t know why you do. i can comment on whomever i like. don’t like it? don’t read my comments then

    Does Missi Pyle have lipstick on her front teeth? Yay! Stars – they’re just like us! Or rather, me.

    I do love red-carpet close-ups. It’s nice to see the spackle and the pores and the wrinkles. Even Milla Jovovich has little bumpy might-be-spots, screw-it-more-concealer moments, and that’s reassuring to the rest of us mere mortals.

    Does Tina Fey have some sort of odd horizontal scar on her cheek, though? I never noticed it before. Is it just a weird picture?

  12. Shelly says:

    I thought Glenn looked sexy as hell! She is one hot woman! Milla looked glamorous, but I was honestly confused as to why she was a presenter or whatever she was. She just isn’t a big enough name. Unless I’m missing something.

  13. QQ says:

    Im just going to say this again MISSY FREAKING PYLE IS IN AN OSCAR WINNING MOVIE!

    That said loved all these ladies, meh on Missy herself but kudos on her dress’ intention

  14. Sumodo1 says:

    Milla knocked it out of the park. Best dressed. Tina Fey was dressed beautifully with hair done appropriately. Comedian Missy Pyle? Mutton dressed as lamb.

  15. tracking says:

    I thought Milla was best dressed, and best overall from head to toe. Tina looked wonderful, but I feel like she’s worn that color and silhouette before. Glenn Close looks smashing, the other meh.

  16. Luda says:

    I know it’s part of the ‘look’, but I desperately want Missi Pyle to pull the strap back up to her shoulder.

  17. Smr says:

    I love Tina. She has a great figure and gorgeous skin. Seems like she’d be a blast to hang out with too.

  18. WOM says:

    The front view of Glenn’s dress is wonderful. But the back of it is a fussy mess that detracted from the overall look.

    I really don’t care for the random, mid-arm drape look on Missi’s dress. It’s like the formal version of a fallen bra-strap. “Cruelty free silkworms” — that’s ridiculous.

  19. jamminatorr says:

    I LOVED Tina’s and Glen’s look. I really loved the movement of Glen’s dress and the way that she threw around the train. Missi Pyle looks like an ice-capades disaster but that might just be the colour?

  20. Kimbob says:

    I just looooorrrvve Tina and Milla! Both look SUPER CLASSY!!!

    And what about Glenn Close? OMG, OMG….it’s the best she’s looked in YEARS!!! Go Glenn, Go Tina, Go Milla!!!

  21. Happy21 says:

    They all looked fantastic. When I saw Tina Fey on the red carpet I was shocked. She usually doesn’t wow me but I thought she looked great.

    Milla is to me the most beautiful woman on the planet and has been since probably 1992 when I first saw her in one of my teenaged fashion mags. There is almost no way that she can look anything but fabulous to me!

    Glenn Close looked great too. I like the hair with the outfit. Somehow it just worked.

    The girl with the seafoam dress looks pretty.

    Honestly, I didn’t see many (if any) dresses last night that I thought were terrible.

  22. jferber says:

    Missi was absolutely HILARIOUS in Spring Breakdown with Amy Poehler, Parker Posey and Jane Lynch. The movie is funny as hell, too, screamingly so.

  23. D. says:

    I’m really liking the all-white look some of the women were sporting (e.g. Milla, Rooney, Gwyneth) It looks very dramatic & glamorous, especially during the winter season.

  24. coconut says:

    i’m not enjoying these sani-pad shoulder pads on the gowns!

  25. Ari says:

    Missi wore a student dress that won an international competition so that was cool :) Also its amazing but Glenn Close looks better now than she did when she did Fatal Attraction (she was so not hot)

  26. Agnes says:

    tina looked AMAZING! i loved everything about her look last night. totally hot and glamorous.

  27. Kim says:

    Tina looked better than usual (she isnt a looker) but no way did she look better than Mila. Not even close.

  28. faye says:

    Tina’s “custom” dress looks like a thousand bridesmaids and mother of the brides dresses that I have seen. It looks fine, but hardly new or original.

  29. aud says:

    I liked Missi’s dress on her, would have looked horrid on others

    but she really should have gotten her teeth bleached.

  30. Camille (The original) says:

    Milla was my pick for best dressed of the night. She looked divine.

    Tina looked lovely also.

  31. Maritza says:

    All lovely dresses and ladies.

  32. lucy2 says:

    Tina look fabulous, and the more I see Milla’s, the more I like it.
    I’m not sure why, but I never like what Glenn Close wears. It always looks overdone for some reason, I don’t know why I keep thinking that. It’s a perfectly nice gown, but she just always seems uncomfortable dressed up like that.

  33. marie says:

    Mila looked like a Hollywood Actress. Her gown was gorgeous! Tina Fey looked ok…I am not fond of the peplum style and the dress looked pinned together. Glenn Close looked great, too.

  34. AnnieC says:

    OMG! Glen Close looked amaZing! She brought it much better than Milla! I always think those heavily-beaded gowns are for middle-aged ladies who need to rely more on the snazzy dress than their looks & Milla is too too young for that!

  35. Dirty Martini says:

    Mila for the win. Classy, elegant and stylish.

    Excellent showing by Tina, but I just wasnt that into the bouffant thingy on the back of her head.

    Reminded me of Doreen, back at the breakfast diner in the south Georgia I-75 Tifton pulloff.

  36. Ruffian9 says:

    I think Milla is gorgeous. I have similar colouring (not looks), so I’m always interested to see what works on her. I’m not 100% sure the white does. I know it tends to wash me out unless I pair it with something bolder/darker. I ADORE Glenn Closes’outfit. The style, the colour, the fit – just fantastic. Maybe the best of the night for me. I despise seafoam anything. It’s just such a horrid, nausea-inducing colour.

  37. Emily says:

    Tina looked great, but who’s the chick in purple behind her in the first picture? I very much like that necklace with her dress. I think Milla wore too much blush, especially with that lipstick.

  38. danielle says:

    Glen Close gets my vote for one of the best dressed of the night. And I liked the hair – sexy!
