There is not a single designer to be a safe bet on the red carpet. But if one approaches this category is Valentino . Make a review of the best dressed of the Oscars is finding his name over and over again. Here are a few that can boast of being the most elegant and yet collect the coveted prize:
2001 was the year that all betting pools for the academy finally reward America's Sweetheart. If all designers go into a mad race for the favorite dress, probably that year broke all records and more than fifty designers were put in contact with Julia Roberts to dress on that night.
She opted for a vintage model of haute couture, white and black, in 1982 they recovered from the archives of the house. Probably the dress that all will remember forever and takes her to appear on all lists of the best dressed in Oscar history.
In 1982 Jane Fonda went to the Oscars with a nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Although this year the statue was placed in the hands of Maureen Stapleton for Reds, Jane took the stage to receive the prize he won his father Henry for his role in "The Golden Pond."
His Valentino consists of a bodice embroidered in black, gold and bronze leaves of laurel and forming a chocolate-colored silk skirt perfectly reflects what was considered stylish in the 80's.
On January 23, 2005 announced the appointment of Cate Blanchett for her portrayal of Katherine Hepburn in "The Aviator" and called to congratulate Valentino. The next day, Valetino presented his haute couture collection for Spring 2005. She was for a week looking at pictures of his show and after a meeting between the two in London decided to adapt one of the outputs of the parade ( dress in black and white ) in a yellow that became the most elegant of the night.
In 1991, Sofia Loren chose a Valentino dress made exclusively for her to collect his honorary Oscar. It was no surprise, as the designer and actress are close friends and is very common to see her dressed in the brand or even by attending festivals or other events arm Valentino.
It is curious that the yellow color is considered jinxed by the art world and to be repeated in another actress. Liz Taylor picked up the 1993 Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for his work on behalf of victims of AIDS with this dress not be getting overshadowed by daisy necklace Van Cleef & Arpels.
