As the red carpet got underway for the 81st Academy Awards last night it was looking like a sea of neutrals, gold and silver. Marissa Tomei looked beautiful in Versace, as did Anne Hathaway in Armani. Other hits in shimmery neutrals were Jennifer Aniston in Valentino and Sarah Jessica in Dior. Kate Winslet looked lovely, but oh so safe in Yves Saint Laurent . And I thought Marion Cotillard looked divine in Dior. Jewellery was a sparse affair, there wasn't the usual bling associated with the Oscars - a reflection of the tough economical times. I didn't love Amy Ryan's dress, but her necklace was stunning. But for me the standout in styling was Angelina Jolie. Her Elie Saab gown could have been a really boring affair, but the addition of the those emerald earrings and cocktail ring took the outfit somewhere special.
