Kristin Chenoweth in Roberto Cavalli at the Oscars: budget Oscar statuette?

Kristen Chenowith

Kristin Chenowith attended the Oscars in Roberto Cavalli last night. I was hesitant to make her a headliner in a post, but Kristen clearly wanted to be noticed. She’s dressed as an Oscar statuette. Was this intentional theming, or did Kristen simply like the dress? We’ll never know. The dress is — to be perfectly blunt — tacky and overdone. I think some sleeker details could have been used instead of layers of lattice work. The tulle fabric of the train softens the look a little bit, but it’s not enough to redeem the dress.

Kristen recently went for her new pixie cut to varied reactions. I think if her hair was still long, she could have softened up her look with some retro curls. She’s so cute that I hate to rip her apart for anything, but this dress is a disaster.

Camila Alves

Camila Alves wore a soft pink Gabriela Cadena gown with a side of Best Actor Matthew McConaughey. Camila is a model by trade, so she knows how to work this dress without letting herself be swallowed up. There is a lot of fabric here! I’m curious to see how the dress would have looked without sleeves.

Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith wore a pink Atelier Versace gown with tons of details. The dress featured a halter neck, a high thigh slit, a train, and many folds of drapey fabric. The look is overwhelming, which is complicated by Jada getting matchy-matchy with her eyeshadow and lipstick. Her flat-ironed hair with a center part is a very severe look, and I already think of Jada as being a “severe” person. Jada switched up her outfit for the Vanity Fair party. This is Roberto Cavalli dress, and it is so “Joan Collins in Dynasty.”

    I have mixed feelings about Kristen’s dress. I think it would look good in a different color.

  2. Kristen’s look is a lot better than usual–last year she wore something that swallowed her up–she looked like a little old lady….plus the dress was ugly.

    I don’t like Camilla’s gown–it’s way too much fabric and it makes her look ‘heavy’..maybe if they got rid of that cape thing, or used a lighter material.

      I thought KC actually looked like a little old lady last night too! It kinda frightened me because she usually radiates youthfulness.

      Camilla’s is too heavy, I agree. I do like that it’s pink, though, in the shots I saw last night I thought it was drab beige.

      And Jada, no matter what she wears, looks like someone I would not want to cross and/or meet in a dark alley.

    Chenoweth dress is a mess the rest are i mean… Blah! Idk, is like no one wanted to be there or something

    She messed with her face right?

    It made me sad to see

    On tv Kristin’s looked pretty and much more subdued, but I don’t care for it in the photos. I like her hair though.
    Jada’s dress does weird things to her chest.

    I like Kristin, I do but lately.. she’s like 2 steps from tan-mom. Stop it girl.

  7. Lily says:

    I prefer Jada’s party dress to her red carpet choice

  8. Bridget says:

    I saw her interview with Seacrest… It is just so hard to like her once she actually starts speaking. Chenoweth is just too, too much, and tries way too hard. Though I did wonder how hard she and Idina had to work to avoid each other.

  9. Mel says:

    The sad part is, this is, by far, the BEST Cavalli dress I’ve seen to date.
    As you can guess, I am no fan of Cavalli’s animal print style. (“Style” would be perhaps more accurate.)

    Camilla Alves really carries this dress well. I didn’t used to find her particularly attractive but some of her more recent fashion has changed that opinion.
    Also, how lovely were the shots of Matthew and Camilla interacting? I thought they seemed so genuine, so in love, and it was heartwarming. :)

  11. Dotty says:

    Camilla’s dress swallows her!

  12. shellybean says:

    Kristin looks like hell. She looks like an aging socialite. I can’t believe she’s only in her 40s.

    OMG, when I saw the first photo of KC, I thought someone photoshopped her head onto someone else’s body!
