Bérénice Bejo In Elie Saab Couture – 2012 Oscars

Berenice Bejo played it safe on the red carpet at the 2012 Oscars, held in Hollywood this evening.

As predicted ‘The Artist’ actress wore an Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture gown.

Her mint long sleeve fully embroidered gown with a deep v neckline.

By opting for this mint green colours, she prevents herself being totally washed out had she opted or the runway white.

Swarovski custom-made her clutch to match her dress and she dazzled in Chopard jewels.

Even with all those accessories, I still feel like something is missing to give this look the wow factor.

    I hope this the first to many Elie Saab’s tonight. A disappointment.

      I know! I want to see more–of all the looks from his Spring Couture collection this is not one I would have chosen. Her hair is not good here either. Overall, a matronly, drab look.

    What’s missing:

    A better hairstyle
    Better posture
    Better support you-know-where

    • Hannah February 26, 2012 at 23:52 #

      Exactly what I was thinking. Even sans support & hairstyle, had she worn it liek Milla Jovovich, she would have looked worlds better.

      • Raquel February 27, 2012 at 00:08 #

        And the makeup! A nice lipstick with add some much needed color.

    • Shaina February 26, 2012 at 23:58 #

      Completely agree.

    • Patricia February 26, 2012 at 23:58 #

      I agree about the hair… and the support … and the posture.

      She should have leave this dress to Fan Bing Bing.

    • noo February 27, 2012 at 10:18 #

      i think she has support you know where but she’s just slouching for some reason, it’s weird because we know she can pose

    • Alina February 28, 2012 at 13:07 #

      You’re right.

  3. Moxie February 26, 2012 at 23:37 #

    This is a disappointment. Too pale and she needed to do more with her hair.

  4. Martina February 26, 2012 at 23:41 #

    I love the dress and her accessories but I don’t like how it makes her breast look a bit saggy… She should have gotten a better support. And I’m not a big fan of her hair either. And also I think that the big snoozer for the looks is her posture, she should’ve stood up straight…

    • mm February 27, 2012 at 00:20 #

      She looked better on TV. I agree about the need for more support for her breast. But I love the hair and the color of the dress compared with her hair color.

  5. A. February 26, 2012 at 23:43 #

    maybe she needed to wear her hair differently. don’t like the braided updo. the dress, per se, is beautiful.

  6. shap_half February 26, 2012 at 23:44 #

    Much better on the runway. Not amazing.

  7. Jen February 26, 2012 at 23:46 #

    The dress and hair are rather aging. Not a fan of the perfectly colour-matched clutch either.

  8. Rory February 26, 2012 at 23:49 #

    BORING – next!

  9. lalala February 26, 2012 at 23:49 #

    Whats missing ?? > Is a neutral background. Seriously these awards should be doing plain blank screen where the stars can have there pictures taken its to much chaos to see al the people in the background. It ruins the whole look.

  10. JC February 26, 2012 at 23:55 #

    She looks stunning! Her Elie Saab is a dazzler! Best dressed! Knockout!

    • SilentVisitor February 27, 2012 at 00:04 #

      I agree with you. I think this picture does not do justice to the dress and her earrings. I loved her dress and especially those emerald earrings

  11. Simon February 26, 2012 at 23:55 #

    this girl will never give you a wow cauz she don’t know how to pose, she need to bombs shoulders cauz she just look like she waiting at the checkout of a supermarket

  12. Jones19 February 26, 2012 at 23:57 #

    Very disappoint. This is not the way to wear an Elie Saab.

  13. Sophie February 27, 2012 at 00:00 #

    I don’t know… She looked far better on TV and on other pictures

  14. pepe February 27, 2012 at 00:02 #

    if you don’t surprise and glow in a Elie Saab couture gown , you are in troubles.

  15. gab February 27, 2012 at 00:03 #

    she doesnt have class
    she cant pull out an elie saab dress

  16. Erin February 27, 2012 at 00:05 #

    Her posture is horrible

  17. robbie February 27, 2012 at 00:53 #

    looked better on screen than in pictures. but something is definetely missing plus i hate her earrings. perhaps a better hairstyle something with a little oomph might have made it all look better.

  18. Emerico February 27, 2012 at 00:55 #

    Following Berenice on the red carpet has been such a disappointment for me. She was an effervescent, ethereally charming presence in The Artist, but that simply does not seem to translate offscreen.

    She lacks the class, grace and movie star presence to successfully pull off red carpet glamour and ends up looking unimpressive whatever she wears. I never thought that Elie Saab could look downright dowdy, but she manages this feat.

  19. justme February 27, 2012 at 01:14 #

    I still don’t understand why she went with this lighter reddish brown hair colour. She looks her best as a full on brunette.
    As for the dress, like I said for Milla Jovovich, it’s just not one of Elie’s best efforts.

  20. SHOWbit February 27, 2012 at 06:35 #

    Thank’s for all the Oscar’s information! I imagine you work all night. I remember you were near to me at Elie Saab Couture show, and we saw Berenice at front row, so was easy thought she woul wear a gown from the brand. Kisses!

  21. slashdot February 27, 2012 at 08:22 #

    I think the hair colour is really off and makes her seem washed out. Yet, I do feel like she looked better on screen.

  22. SandTony February 27, 2012 at 14:22 #

    This pic doesn’t really do her justice because she looked fantastic on TV. Actually she was one of my faves, pure class

  23. Fannie February 27, 2012 at 14:46 #

    Why does she look like she’s suffering or something?

  24. Tiffany Nicole February 27, 2012 at 15:20 #

    what’s missing: something to give her more shape.

  25. Camille February 27, 2012 at 15:49 #

    Horrible. One of my worst dressed for the night. Her hair color and hair style are horrible. The color is really bad. The gown looks boring and matronly, mother of the bride at a tacky wedding. Where is her vivacity and sparkle?? This is just such an epic fail, truly disappointing.

  26. jenables February 28, 2012 at 08:24 #

    Baha! You guys are hilarious! Hyper critical much? Give your heads a shake, she is beautiful! This all makes me think you have spent far too much time taking in fake photoshopped pics to even know what reality is anymore. I just hope she was happy with how she looked, that is what matters.

    • Fashion Critic February 28, 2012 at 11:02 #

      so basically you are saying that no one is allowed to have an opinion unless it agrees with yours

  27. TeaAtTwo March 1, 2012 at 01:05 #

    I think Shailene Woodley could have rocked the runway version (maybe a slight lining to stop underwear flashing in photos).
