Tina Fey In Carolina Herrera – 2012 Oscars

Carolina Herrera wanted to dress only one star for the 2012 Oscars, held in Hollywood this evening.

Tina Fey was this lucky actress, wearing a custom Carolina Herrera midnight blue strapless gown with a chic peplum detail.

Every time we see Tina hit the red carpet, she keeps getting better and better, and this is no exception.

My favourite part of the entire ensemble is her voluminous up-do. Such a glamorous look is perfect for the fancy occasion.

A black satin Roger Vivier Short Night tube clutch and Bulgari jewels completed her look.

    Nice look, but nothing to get excited about, in my opinion. I do love her earrings, though.

    I have never liked a single Carolina Herrera dress – always too safe, boring and uncreative. Nothing to celebrate about with this dress. The dress fabric is heavy and the structure adds bulk rather than flatters. So predictable and bleh

    She looks lovely, safe, but lovely. And the earrings and updo were fabulous touches to this somewhat tame look.

    I loved this on the red carpet, but knowing that it is midnight blue makes me love it even more! (It looked black on TV.) Gorgeous.

    No thanks. She looks bad even if it was custom made.

    Hmmm. Great silhouette but everything else is quite boring looking.

    I love Tina, and while I am never blown away by her fashion you can always count on her class. She did have my favorite jewels of the night, which was a pleasant surprise. Those earrings are so pretty, I love their color and the fact that they don’t perfectly match the dress.

    I do not hate it but for me it seems like she used the band to tie a pillow that forms the peplum.

    Tina Fey is so very, very drab in her styling, always. She is lucky that we all fell in love with her because of how intelligent and hilarious she is, and that we will keep loving her despite looks like these which scream ‘suburban mom got an invite to the Oscars’. Sorry for the vulgar stereotyping. I have nothing against suburban moms, I was just trying to evoke a certain image.

    This is definitely one of Tinas better looks for me. The color is amazing and those earring against her eyes and hair is divine.

  12. Tina February 27, 2012 at 3:18 am #

    The dress fits her very well and the colour is great on her skintone. I like the silhouette it makes and she is defs getting better!

    I loved Tina in this look! I’m also thrilled that she’s getting away from so much black on the red carpet.

    There’s a little too much pep in that peplum. Tina never does it for me.

    • MsDivaMom February 27, 2012 at 4:32 pm #

      Agree. She looked pregnant from the side. And her prom hair was on my nerves!

    • EmmaWoodhouse February 27, 2012 at 6:21 pm #

      You’re right, it is a bit too voluminous. The bodice fits her well but I’m not wowed. Nice earrings.

    Love this!

  16. Erik February 27, 2012 at 2:53 am #

    This dress is like a chameleon.. Blue in this picture, a dark plum colour on tv on the red carpet and black when Tina presented awards

  17. pipsqueak February 27, 2012 at 2:51 am #

    I love this dress. It looked like eggplant on TV but navy here. Either way, it gave Tina a very flattering profile. I love her updo also.

  18. Jeremy February 27, 2012 at 2:49 am #

    Yeah, “safe” is the right word. She should pick Oscar de la Renta for this event.

  19. Raquel February 27, 2012 at 2:48 am #

    Dark blue is really her color. She looks so very pretty.

    • dee February 27, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

      I agree.

  20. robbie February 27, 2012 at 2:47 am #

    meh! gorgeous earrings though.

  21. MEME February 27, 2012 at 2:47 am #

    The dress was Navy???… why did it photograph black???…

    • Fashion Critic February 27, 2012 at 3:06 am #

      yes navy with a black band

    • noo February 27, 2012 at 3:54 am #

      on my tv it looked purple, in fact nina garcia described it as purple!

    • Nat February 27, 2012 at 2:28 pm #

      On my tv it definitely looked black! And everyone commenting live were saying that it was black…
      Really odd…

      However, now that it know it’s navy, I like it even more (never been much a fan of black on the red carpet)!

    Safe but a nice choice for her. The hair and earrings are great.
