Designers vs. Actresses

Now that the Oscars are over, and many people blogged about them, what do you think of the dresses that top DESIGNERS think these actresses should have worn? [Here's some from style.com]

The dream dress vs. the real deal.

Rodarte for Saoirse Ronan (Atonement). Since she's only 13, it's a cute dress.

Saoirse Ronan's actual outfit. "Princess-like", but a little bit too much like a nightgown for me.

Richard Chai for Tilda Swinton. (Michael Clayton). I like the neckline on this dress, and it looks like it would be very comfortable..

Tilda Swinton's actual outfit. I know you all thought about this already...but where are her sleeves? Currently, nobody has figured this out yet. Maybe she was in a fight before the Oscars, she had to get a flu shot on her left arm, she has secret tattoos of unicorns up and down her right arm...who knows?

Philip Lim for Ellen Page. (Juno) I like the organza fan, it's an intersting "face-highlighting" detail.

Ellen Page. This definitely wasn't the most interesting dress, but think about it, this wouldn't flatter just ANYBODY and she still looks good in this simple dress.

I'm sorry, but I just don't think any of these dress were done much justice. They weren't really flattering on any of them. Oh now Tilda on the other hand, she's a story all her own. I'm sorry, but I just can't stand looking at her 'n she keeps popping up everywhere. She looks like a really old version of Clay Aiken...uggh.

This dress doesn't complement her body type. Her face is heart-shaped or curved so she should've opted for a v-neckline.

The designer dresses have so much potential on the actresses! I almost wish they would have gone with the dream dresses instead!


i hate the no sleeve that was honestly disgraceful. the first sketch is so nice and i liked the way it turned out.. but that little girl does not look 12 or 13.. she looks at least in her 20s!

Oh wow, those designs are stunning! They would have looked better on all three actresses instead of what they actually chose (Saoirse Ronan looked rather lovely though).
Cool post. :)
