I'm pretty sure that emerald jewelers around the world have Angelina to thank for making emeralds popular again. They were the most beautiful thing on the red carpet!
Although Tilda Swinton's Lanvin number got bad reviews, I actually loved it! I don't think it's particularly flattering, but I think it's interesting and would probably look better on a brunette with olive skin so you could see the separation from dress to skin a little better. I'm glad she took a risk, yes, everyone (especially Jennifer Aniston and Anne Hathaway) looked beautiful in their ivory gowns, but it was pretty tame. Thanks Tilda for never being predictable!
Nicole Kidman's L'Wren Scott dress was marvelous.
