Halle Berry In Marchesa – 2011 Oscars

Beautiful, But Isn’t She Always Beautiful? Award
There always has to be at least two Marchesa gowns at major events.

Hailee Steinfeld wore the first and Halle Berry wore the second Marchesa look at the 2011 Oscars tonight.

The Oscar winning actress was glowing – literally – wearing a nude and crystal encrusted corset Marchesa gown with organza and silk tulle ruffles.

Had this look been a black plunging gown I would’ve been very disappointed.

I’m glad despite her woes she made the effort.

    I am in love. She looks like a sexy batch of cotton candy.

      BDOTW I say!

        I agree! She should have been a contender for Best Dressed of the Oscars!

    clearly she let her daughter near the dress with scissors, it is a total mess. nice from the waist up but from the waist down its horrid.

    Glad she went for the princess moment. I heard somewhere that nude tones look best on someone who isn’t anywhere close to that shade of nude. And Halle proves that right. She looks so gorgeous here. Maybe a bit fussy on some but not on Halle.

    Stunningly beautiful dress on a gorgeous woman.

    Always a wow!

    See, I really want to be thrilled by this, but I cannot. It’s not her, she looks wonderful, just that I’ve seen this dress a million times before – same for Hillary Swank.

    Now, Anne hatahway and that midnight blue dress?? SWOOOON.

    Beautiful gown. The colour looks fantastic against her skin tone. One of my favourites so far.

    i liked this one! and i’m glad she didn’t wear too much jewelry with it. i think she looked stunning.

  9. Caitlin February 28, 2011 at 05:20 #

    She always looks the same to me, and I am never really blown away by her anymore. I love this gown, but she bores me.

    This was perfection. It was classy, beautiful, and figure flattering without being over the top sexy. If I could tweak anything it would have been the eye makeup with was a little heavy handed and monochromatic on screen.

    hmm im actually more impressed by this dress in pictures than i was when i saw her on tv walking down the read carpet..

    seems like we’ve seen this dress before?

    Definitely one of my favorites of the night! She looks beautiful & so is the gown!

  13. Danielle February 28, 2011 at 06:08 #

    I thought that she looked breathtaking. I don’t know what everyone is expecting. She doesn’t really do avant-garde

  14. sigh February 28, 2011 at 07:40 #

    I didn’t like the bottom, the top good, but the bottom – it looked like she got tangled up in loo paper (if loo paper was tulle that is).

  15. Andreea February 28, 2011 at 07:54 #

    The dress is gorgeus and looks great on her body,but it is something that i don’t like about Halle ..

  16. nicky February 28, 2011 at 08:46 #

    she looks stunning. you can’t go wrong in a gown like that…a bit safe but still interesting. i much prefer this style than her usual plunging gowns as well!

  17. Emi February 28, 2011 at 09:08 #

    The corset is beautiful but the rest is quite messy. I don’t like her make up, most of all the eyeshadow and this dress is a deja vu, it seems like I’ve already seen it many times.

  18. SarahV February 28, 2011 at 11:47 #

    I like this, but it’s a little too bridal for the Oscars…

  19. CreoleLady February 28, 2011 at 12:07 #

    Love it from the top of her pixie cut to the frothy cloud at her feet. Don’t hate her ’cause she’s beautiful, lol (joking, joking, your caption just brought that annoying Kerry Hilson song to my mind).

    Halle’s back on form. I applaud her for going for what works for her on such a big occasion. No need to be “try hard” when one is so naturally gorgeous. Brava.

    The dress is nice and she looks really nice but again I just dont find her appealing any more on the red carpet because of her personal life

  21. LizLemoooon February 28, 2011 at 13:14 #

    JFC it was like the Beige Olympics last night. So many terribly boring, similar looking dressing. Obviously Halle is outrageously stunning in whatever she wears but this dress was dull
    I will say tho that I thought the hem detail was kind of interesting, it looked like smoke.

  22. Annaa February 28, 2011 at 14:48 #

    she really looks stunning. *-*

  23. Hannah February 28, 2011 at 18:56 #

    There seems to eb something missing. I can;t put my figner on what it is because she looks drop dead gorgoeus, but I am slightly bored somehow. I think a necklace might have been nice.

    • Hannah February 28, 2011 at 23:33 #

      Hey FC, just to point out this is posted in Ginnifer Goodwin, not Halle Berry! ;)

      • Fashion Critic March 1, 2011 at 00:50 #

        thanks…fatigue :)

  24. KateS March 1, 2011 at 00:37 #

    She’s so beautiful it’s just ridiculous. Gorgeous, as always, and as others have noted, this blush/sand shade is so much better on her skin tone than on fair girls (Gwynneth take note).

  25. mochababe73 March 1, 2011 at 01:57 #

    Beautiful. Just beautiful.
    I am in love with this dress, and I like that she wore earrings while some would have not worn any.
    The hair and make-up were gorgeous.

  26. Katie March 8, 2011 at 15:06 #

    OMG how stunning…
