Livia Firth In Valentino – 2012 Oscars

Livia Firth joined her husband Colin Firth, on the red carpet for the 2012 Oscars, held in LA yesterday evening.

She wore a custom-made Valentino gown.

The red gown is dramatic, the colour is stunning on her, but I can’t get on board with the crumb-catcher bodice.

Had that been smoothed out, I think this would’ve been one of my favourites.

A Valentino Garavani clutch completed her look.

Colin Firth recycled his Tom Ford wool tuxedo in which he won his ‘Best Actor’ award at last year’s ceremony for ‘The King’s Speech.’

      I laughed so hard, it does look like a crumb catcher doesn’t it? LOL

      Perfect description. It might have worked if the dress were strapless

    hate the bodice too, what a shame!

    I hope to find a man who looks at me like that…

    You’re too funny! That was the first thing I noticed – custom made by whom – certainly does not look like it. The neckline looks awkard – should be just a simple slash across, no? Love the colour, sleeves, skirt and bow, basically everything except that bodice lol!

    i fully agree but she looks beautiful and really classy nevertheless!and don’t get me started with that arm candy…wow that man!

    He looks great! The recycled tux made me laugh.

    Ugly dress.

    It’s not fair how men can get away with recycling clothes without anyone noticing — well, except for FC’s eagle eye.

    AS per usual for Valeninto Dresses, this looks liek it fell off the set from Littl eHouse on the Prairie.

      Also, FC, have oyu read her Blog?
      She describes how her dress was made, and, oh yes, that Meryl’s was an eco friendly dress too!

    They are such a lovely couple–he’ll ALWAYS be Mr. Darcy for me :) Her dress would be very pretty without the crumb-catcher, but I’m not appalled by it.

    Being “green” doesn’t excuse this hot mess. That dress has way too much happening – big color, big skirt, big sleeves. Not to mention that weird bodice. I would have done much better for you, Colin.

    • Nina February 27, 2012 at 18:36 #

      I really hate her style, it’s awful. She never get it right. Eco friendly gowns can be beautiful too, what kind of message is she trying to pass?

  12. Niki February 28, 2012 at 11:32 #

    He he, crumb-catcher. This dress ages her so much! The main word that comes to mind is ‘WHY?!’. I don’t know what she was thinking, but I do know that whoever gave her the dress really hated her guts!

  13. Alina February 28, 2012 at 14:40 #

    Ugly dress.

  14. Shaina February 29, 2012 at 00:16 #

    LOL, I lost it at “crumb-catcher!”

  15. Jess2 March 1, 2012 at 13:29 #

    I agree completely FC, had the bodice been smoothed out this would have been another wonderful look for Livia. She always looks lovely but yes the crumb catcher is not the best.

    Dreadful design. Silly looking dress from the waist up. Not a smart look for someone trying to promote recycling.
