Red carpet love

I'm usually blown over by bold jewel-toned gowns, but last night I was swooning over all things pale. Is the wedding making that much of an influence, or was it truly the color story of the night? My three favorite gowns:

Flowy. Taraji P. Henson in Roberto Cavalli. I don't typically think of elegance when I think of Cavalli gowns (is that tactful enough?), but this one is divine. How is it possible that Taraji has a 14-year-old son, by the way? Amazing.

Structured. Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive. She looked spectacular in this dress. Head to toe perfection. Anne is quickly becoming a major red carpet icon, and this dress proves exactly why.

. Marisa Tomei in Atelier Versace. Stunning. The folds of this gown are just ridiculous. I love Marisa's sense of style - while it's sometimes off, it's never, ever boring. Last night she nailed it.

As for hair... the divine Diane Lane is my new wedding hair model. If anyone sees better DL hair photos, send them over to me. Wavy updos unite!

On the snarky side? Kate, Slynnro, and I saw some bad hair, bad shoes, bad facelifts, and interesting hemlines. But I'd rather post pictures of prettiness. :-)

On that note, my favorite party pic from last night, featuring my two favorite screen goddesses. Does it get any better than Kate Winslet and Meryl Streep goofing off together?

Weren't the dresses fabulous! I loved Taraji's as well... I think because it reminds me of my wedding gown!!

Taraji's dress may have been my favorite, although I really liked all of your picks here.

I want Diane Lane and Meryl Streep to co-author a book about aging beautifully. I fear it has something to do with "genetics" and "natural beauty", but I would at least like my suspicions confirmed in writing.
