Who: Jennifer Garner
Where: At the 86th Academy Awards in Los Angeles, California
Wearing: A silver tulle tiered fringe Oscar de la Renta gown with micro bugle and bead embroidery, teamed with a OdlR silver crown Goa clutch, diamond bracelets and delicate drop earrings from Forevermark
Verdict: When I saw this dress on the red carpet I wasn’t blown away, normally I really love flapper-inspired gowns, but this dress didn’t seem showy enough for the Oscars or for one of my favourite actress who always has an elegance about her.
Don’t get me wrong this beaded gown is nice, exquisitely made, and even though it did shimmer better on the Oscar stage than on the red carpet – this dress just wasn’t enough. Maybe I being very picky, or maybe because there were a handful of other looks that I loved more, for once Jennifer Garner just didn’t make my best-dressed list.
But can I say that her side-swept hair and loose waves and flawless make-up was one of the best of the night – simply gorgeous. Plus I loved her bright red nails.
