    When does Nichole Kidman ever look less than fabulous? Classic taste is always a winner.

  2. Dorothy Murphy says:

    Love the green, the glamour, the glitz, and the classicly beautiful dresses, so many were so beautiful, but I hate the belts and the wierd, designed for shock value. Belts ruin a nice svelte line, wierd designs are just foolish.

  5. JillS. says:

    I really liked Mila Kunis and Anne Hathaway’s dresses. I like Eva Longoria’s but the “train” is a bit much – and she is so small looks kinda like it swallowed her. there are plenty of “what were they thinking” in the gallery too!
