I love Zellweger’s gown like, to a serious extent. I really am nowhere even close to a fan of hers but for once, I really do believe she made a brilliant decision. It is simple and understated yet so stylish and elegant. The color is so calm and the embellishments along the side so dynamic in a way. The way the train breaks off from the solid color to be just a thin stream of almost transparent material is fantastic.
Sofia Vergara’s dress is clearly from Herrera’s spring collection, although not from the runway. The floral theme was all over her spring collection but none really resembling this. It’s very simple — kind of like the Jil Sander spring collection although diverging with the floral print on the skirt. It looks great on her. It’s not as wild as I would have loved — I want to see Vergara in balls-out, gigantic couture. But she has never taken the carpet in anything like that.
