Amanda Seyfried in red Givenchy at the Vanity Fair party: lovely or silly?

Amanda Seyfried

Amanda Seyfried managed to surprise at the Vanity Fair Oscar party by changing out of her beloved, custom-made Alexander McQueen gown, which I found odd at first since it’s so rare to find Amanda in a red carpet dress that her stylist didn’t make her wear. But I do believe we’ve found the secret to Amanda’s sartorial happiness — dresses that are made just for her. Hence this tomato-red, custom-made Givenchy haute couture gown that Amanda seems quite pleased to be wearing.

I don’t hate this dress, and I even kind of like it to an extent. To begin, the color looks amazing next to Amanda’s pale skin, and the fabric is very interesting. The full skirt carries a certain charm, and the waist (the belt is kind of cool) and bust cut are very flattering to our girl’s body. Where things get a little bit sketchy are with hints of bondage-like details of the straps and built-in-choker. Of course, this is an unusual, one-of-a-kind dress for which (presumably) Amanda had a good deal of input, so I’m going to go with it. This dress looks good on Amanda, but I can’t think of another person who could get away with wearing it. Her makeup looks great, and the swept-back hair is just right too.

Isla Fisher

Isla Fisher looked gorgeous in a cobalt blue Monique Lhuillier dress that perfectly set off her ginger hair. The dress looks great from the front, and the fabric and train are quite lovely, but the way that the backless part of the dress is cut leaves much to be desired. Isla looks cute but worried that the dress might fall down. Or am I just imagining that part?

Minnie Driver

Minnie Driver went silver with a plunging neckline, but it’s not nearly as scandalous as Heidi Klum’s Oscar-party boob dress because Minnie’s pretty small busted compared to Heidi. So it’s no big deal that Minnie’s doing it. Remember when she was the “it” girl in the days of Good Will Hunting and Grosse Point Blank? Minnie’s still as gorgeous as always here.

Marisa Tomei

Marisa Tomei (for whatever reason) chose to wear a taupe-colored, beaded pantsuit. This outfit is so shapeless and would be unflattering on pretty much everyone, but Marisa looks really good from the shoulders up.

    other than 2 too many straps I like Amanda’s dress, color looks good on her.

    I love the color of Isla’s dress but it definitely looks like one wrong step and that dress will fall..

    Marisa Tomei is so hot.

  3. Lucy2 says:

    I like all of those looks.

    I love Grosse Point Blank.

  5. Arock says:

    The red dress is so striking on her, absolutely beautiful. Marissa tomei looks great. The dress really compliments her, not the other way around.

    This is the same dress Amanda wore when she sang on stage with her Les Miserables co-stars.

    I think Minnie Driver needs to gain a few pounds. Her head looks too big for her body right now. I do like her dress alot though.

      Minnie makes me feel uncomfortable. I can’t put my finger on why that would be, but I sort of cringe when I see her now.

      Maybe because she looks like she’s ready for the loony bin. Weird.

      Yes! Just looking at the side shot I was in shock! She’s scary skinny and looks like she could head the Lollipop Guild.

  8. Isla looks gorgeous! And I was surprised at how hot I found her husband (Sasha Baron Cohen) when he and on stage with the Les Mis cast. She’s a lucky girl :)

    I think that Marissa Tomei looks gorgeous, her hair is amazing and while I do think that she looks better in a strong color her pantsuit has that old Hollywood glam to it.

    • JBG says:

      Marissa often rocks the pantsuit. I always love the way she looks, and so respect her for ageing naturally. It’s a rarity in Hollywood these days!

    I like Amanda’s dress (although personally I might lose the choker) and love Marisa Tomei’s pantsuit. They look chic and comfortable. Don’t like the other two dresses at all. The blue is beautiful but both that dress and the sequined dress are uninspired, and look like the type of dresses that the wearers will be tugging and adjusting all evening.

  11. Abby says:

    Love all these dresses, especially Amanda’s.

  12. Dani says:

    Marisa Tomei can do no wrong. Love her.

    I think Amanda looks perfect here. She is SO beautiful, yet she never seems to really bring that out in her choices. Her eyes really pop, and the color is beautiful. Much better than the Oscar dress. I love Isla’s dress color, but Marisa & Minnie are just…adequate. Nothing particularly special about either dress.

    I think it’s kind of funny, that the guy in the second picture of Minnie Driver is one of the judges of Germany’s Next Topmodel. I know it’s kind of stupid :) but you mentioned Heidi Klum and then comes the picture with him in the background.

    And with that, I think Amanda Seyfried is now my #1 girl crush. Her Oscar dress and this dress were both devastatingly awesome. She looked amazing in both. I love the skirt of this red one.

    Isla Fisher is so adorable. I see her hunching a little there, though, so I think you are right about her worrying her dress will slip!

    Marissa Tomei HOT!! Thats all i have to say.
