Best Dress Color for Complexion Nominees
Bronze may rank third in certain hierarchies, but on Jessica Chastain's Warm Spring complexion it warranted an anthem and a flag. Her fair skin is clear and smooth, her strawberry locks are glossy and rich, and her green hazel eyes are strong and sparkling.
This Cool Summer blossomed in Mullberry. Even with Jennifer Garner's understated makeup, her features are vibrant and intense.
Warm complexions may believe gray a chromatic cruelty unequaled. But Light Summer Naomi Watts proves it can be a decadent reward when applied appropriately. She is luminous yet not overshown, a notable victory considering the amplitude of sequins she's bearing.
Worst Dress Color for Complexion Nominees
Soft Autumn Jane Fonda is 75 times stunning! And I applaud her for making a big and bold age-appropriate statement on the red carpet. However could the yellow have been ever so much softer and warmer. A gold or bronze would have been ideal, but I would have applauded a butter or daffodil. If you could caught a glimpse of the woman in spite of the dress, you noticed she was left ashy and over-shown
My eyes were misting at the site of this Academy Award darling. Unfortunately the tissue blotted sadness from my cheeks. Technically Deep Winter's can wear icy pinks, but that doesn't mean it's Anne's shining color, a shade equal to her crowning moment. The hue isn't a clashing contrast, but it isn't a glowing companion either. And those unfortunate bust darts . . . let's focus instead on her flawless makeup and darling pixie.
This was a truly Misérables. Soft Summer Amanda Seyfried disappeared on the red carpet. The pale lavender utterly depleted her color, transforming her into a dramatic ghost.
