Oscar’s 2011 – Halle Berry in Marchesa wins FB’s vote!

Oscar’s 2011 – Halle Berry in Marchesa wins FB’s vote!

Having trawled all the major magazine sites this morning for a full update on last night’s Oscar’s glory (congrats to Brit Colin Firth for scooping Best Actor for The King’s Speech btw!), I have to say I wasn’t massively inspired by the dresses on display.

However, one actress really stood out and that was Halle Berry in a nude organza Marchesea dress. I loved the soft, romantic look of this piece- perfectly suited for the Oscar’s. Trains can sometimes look heavy and overpowering, making the wearer look older than her years, but Berry’s was so light it just brushed her skin, emphasising her stunning figure and skintone rather than drowing her.

Marchesa is a luxury eveningwear label, with a nod to vintage and Asian influences, and a favourite of celebrities such as Sienna Miller who has worn it to previous awards ceremonies such as the Golden Globes (see below).
