Sally Hawkins took to the red carpet on Sunday, March 2 in Los Angeles for the 2014 Oscars.

The Best Actress in a Supporting Role nominee for ‘Blue Jasmine’, was one of the many stars who opted for a pale, embroidered dress, in this case Valentino Couture Fall 2013.

The workmanship on this dress is just incredible from the cream and gold embroidery to the pearl waist detail. It’s a true work of art. However, the dress overwhelms Sally’s petite figure. It appears to have not been altered to her frame properly when compared to the runway image. The dress is too long in both the sleeves and hem and the waist is sitting too low.

With a high-necked dress this ornate I generally like to see hair swept up but that bothers me far less than the fact that it’s simply too big. On a taller actress this could have been a winner.
