Gisele Bundchen In Oscar de la Renta – 39th AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring Morgan Freeman

I love an 11th hour contender for BDOTW.

Gisele Bundchen even had Morgan Freeman blushing at the 39th AFI Life Achievement Awards which honored the great actor in LA last night.

It was Freeman’s night, but all eyes would’ve been on Gisele wearing a beautiful Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2011 gown.

Her silver embroidered gown with a draped surplus bodice and a long skirt with fishtail train was accented with a standout pink ribbon waistband as presented on the model.

It’s a beautiful pop of colour, but I also think the gown would’ve looked just as stunning on Gisele without it.

I simple ponytail, a Raven Kauffman Couture ‘Nuit’ clutch, Jimmy Choo ‘Zone’ sandals and Jack Vartanian jewels completed her effortless look.

    love the dress, but not feeling it on her.

    FANTASTIC. Gisele certainly made (me) Brazilian proud!!!! She always does 😀

    Stunning. I love everything. FC, why that lady in red isn’t up for BDOTW? ;-P

    • Fashion Critic June 10, 2011 at 21:46 #

      Which lady?

  4. rachael June 10, 2011 at 20:18 #

    stunning! I think her body can wear any clothes its not fair. and she is thin but um she is a Supermodel. they have to be. Gisele is thicker than the runway model wearing the look.

    I like the ribbon – in different color. The pink is unflattering with her skin tone. I would suggest lime green, maybe teal.

  6. Pati June 10, 2011 at 18:59 #

    I love it. She´s just so perfect.

  7. NY June 10, 2011 at 18:25 #

    I think this would have suited a younger celebrity, such as selena gomez. I dont think it looks amazing on Giselle and i agree that she looks very skinny, which isnt a bad thing, but im just shocked because when she used to do vs she looked so curvey on the runway!

    • Pati June 10, 2011 at 19:00 #

      Sadly enough, as far as I remember VS fired her for being too fat !?!?

      • Gabi June 12, 2011 at 01:53 #

        VS didn’t fired her. It was Gisele’s choice not to renew the contract. Apparently, 5 million dollars is not enough money =P

    Definitely BDOTW contender.

  9. Fiona June 10, 2011 at 16:28 #

    I love the dress on the model but I think on Gisele it is just ok. I think it is her colouring, the model’s dark hair and pale skin suit the dress more than Gisele’s honey colours. Also she seems to have lost more weight after having her baby she doesn’t look the same lately, she is currently in Australian Vogue and I had to look at the credits to see if it was actually her.

  10. Verena June 10, 2011 at 16:15 #

    I liked the colour of the dress and the ribbon in particular better with the runway model’s skin tone.

    • dee June 10, 2011 at 17:40 #

      I agree. I could see this on someone like Dita Von Teese.

      • Verena June 10, 2011 at 18:16 #

        Ooh, you’re right! Dita would look stunning in this dress.

  11. evilllin June 10, 2011 at 15:38 #

    love the dress but the pink ribbon is too distracting

  12. Shaina June 10, 2011 at 15:28 #

    I love the dress but I wish she didn’t wear the belt. I just don’t like it with the dress.

  13. DivaMom June 10, 2011 at 15:24 #

    From afar, its looks just ok. On close up it does look nice. But I’ve seen her look WAAAAYYYY better than this. Not blown away, in other words.

  14. GirlOne June 10, 2011 at 15:18 #

    Sorry, but I think it’s an unbelievably ugly dress!
    Oh, how opinions differ! 🙂

    • Emi June 10, 2011 at 21:35 #

      I love it, I think it’s a gorgeous dress, but I like the fact that we can write our different opinions politely.

  15. dee June 10, 2011 at 15:12 #

    I love the dress on her but I am not feeling the ponytail. It doesn’t seem to fit the glamour of the gown.

    • Kate McCarthy June 10, 2011 at 15:20 #

      I like the ponytail,it keeps the look fresh.i think it works with the pink belt.if she had have worn the dress without the belt i think a more formal hairstyle would be needed.BDOTW for sure

      • dee June 10, 2011 at 16:56 #

        I am looking at her hair again. Nope, still don’t like it. I do get what you’re saying.

  16. Amanda June 10, 2011 at 15:08 #

    She looks amazing, but why was she there? What does she have to do with Morgan Freeman?

  17. fromchi-town June 10, 2011 at 14:40 #

    Wow!! – that’s what I said as soon as I saw her. She looks great. Love it, I guess I made my decision about the BDOTW after seeing her.

  18. maria June 10, 2011 at 14:39 #

    i like it a lot, but somehow it’s not overwhelming, because with a frame like that, what would not look good? I miss the ultimate wow factor when i first see it, like for example the Kate Middleton look.

  19. Jen June 10, 2011 at 14:31 #

    I love the fit and the shape of the dress, but … I don’t like the pink with this pattern. The pattern (to me) has a kind of animal print vibe, and combined with the pink belt, it’s throwing me off. She looks gorgeous, though.

  21. Anna P June 10, 2011 at 14:03 #

    Must say, Morgan Freeman looks very dashing too.

    • Fashion Critic June 10, 2011 at 14:09 #

      he does

  22. Moxie June 10, 2011 at 13:43 #

    Another BDOTW contender! It will be hard to chose between Gisele and Kate Middleton.

  23. bibi June 10, 2011 at 13:16 #

    She’s got it all …just great 🙂

  24. Manja June 10, 2011 at 13:11 #

    omg she looks more then amazing,and i am glad she kept the ribbon.truly gorgeus from h to t.

  25. Alina June 10, 2011 at 13:06 #
