84th Oscars: Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton

Who: Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams

Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A red/coral/burnt orange *delete as appropriate* bustier Louis Vuitton couture gown with on-trend peplum detailing in burnt silk mousseline and organza ribbons done in layers to create a 3D effect, which took more than 300 hours to create; this was finished with Fred Leighton jewels, Bottega Veneta pink clutch and Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: Louis Vuitton is calling this burnt orange, Michelle called it coral, and I have to admit on screen and in pictures it looks red, whatever the shade this is a knock-out dress. I love that Michelle took a risk with this quirky gown with the colour, the peplum and bow detailing to the waist – it all makes this couture gown standout on the red carpet. It also works amazingly with her blonde pixie cut and her red lippy.

It is just a shame that she didn’t win the Best Actress gong as this dress deserved the attention of an Oscar-winner. But I am sure that this dress will hit the best dressed lists – for me I think it just comes in second behind Gwyneth Paltrow.
