I don’t watch the whole of the Academy Awards presentations – too many commercials and bad jokes. But I always watch the red carpet, to scope out what the older women, especially, are wearing. The 20-somethings often steal the Oscars show with body-hugging gowns and lots of skin. I enjoy seeing women closer to my age who look glamorous and graceful.
It seems my eye went to the long, sheath dress this year. Here are my five favorites:
Helen Mirren. Of course. She’s always magnificent, and this year is my favorite look – a long shapely column in deep blue, with (real) sapphires and diamonds at the neckline (kind of similar). So simple, self-assured and stunning. Loving this sleek hairstyle too.
Allison Janney is one of my favorites on the red carpet and on the screen. Her tongue-in-cheek acceptance speech for best supporting actor was brilliant: “I did it all myself.” Love to see her in this vibrant red column gown with fly-away sleeves and minimal (though valuable!) jewelry.
Eva Marie Saint said she’s “older than the Oscars” (she’s 93) and she looks chic and poised in this black gown. The full sleeves, with a pearl bracelet to show them off, are so smart. Love her radiant smile, and please, whoever’s in charge, let me be this vibrant and alive at 90!
