Just last week, Julianne Moore wore one of the most hideous dresses many of us had ever beheld – seriously, it looked like two ugly dresses hate-f-cking each other. Julianne wore the Lanvin monstrosity to promote The Kids Are All Right in Europe, and Julianne got a lot of criticism for it. Now it looks like she’s trying to improve. These are photos from the premiere in Rome (for the film festival). Julianne’s Giorgio Armani dress is… better. Not outstanding, but I’ll definitely give her an A-plus for her hair, skin and makeup, all of which is otherworldly beautiful, and for the color, which is absolutely gorgeous. I’m having issues with the fit, though. And that little cut-out at the bust. The gown is from Armani’s Spring 2011 RTW collection, the shoes are Louboutin, and the clutch and jewelry are Bulgari (which Julianne is the face of currently). Just a note about the color – in these photos, I’m saying the dress is a dark cobalt-teal, but in other photos it just looks like a deep navy. Interesting.
Also very interesting? Julianne is doing the bulk of the European promotion solo. Why isn’t Annette Bening around? Most critics think both Julianne and Annette have an equally good shot as Best Actress Oscar nominations, but if Julianne is the only getting sent out on promotional duty, perhaps the producers are just going to put money into one actress’s campaign?
Earlier in the day, at the Rome Film Festival, Julianne donned head-to-toe Lanvin yet again for the photo call. Even the heels are Lanvin, apparently, according to HuffPo. I don’t mind when redheads wear red, but I just feel like the red with pink with the red hair is just much too bright. It looks garish.
