Red Carpet: Berlinale International Film Festival

Berlin tempted a handful of celebrities away from Hollywood during awards season for their annual film festival.

Controversial opinion alert: I love this. She’s a modern-day Little Red Riding Hood, and while that story is exceptionally disturbing when you dig a little, Elle looks like she stepped out of a fairy tale.

Nice, but boring. The 90’s column dress with spaghetti straps has never been, nor ever will be, my thing.

This has so many elements I like. The princess silhouette. The whimsical pattern. The sparkles. The fact that it’s Valentino. But I still don’t like it. I think it needs 50% less sheer, and maybe a black background instead of the drab tan?

Lovely. I would wear this in a heartbeat.

Classy as always. Is she even capable of looking bad?

This is classic Tilda. Taken virtually unchanged from its runway presentation, this is…really something. I gotta give her credit though, she makes a very chic female Charlie Chaplin.

Isabelle Huppert

Just the coolest, as always. Is there some kind of black magic I can use to trade places with her for a day? I literally cannot imagine what it would feel like to be that coo. Sigh…

Mia Wasikowska in Prada

This is fine. Mia tends to stick with a pretty monochromatic palette can be boring.

See? The best I can tell, this dress was originally shown in a lovely red and pink, so Mia must have specially requested a version in boring, basic black. Which…why??

Patricia Clarkson

Fabulous! Her clutch reads “Women of the World, Unite!”, and sadly I don’t have a designer credit for it or the dress.

Emily Mortimer in Novis

I like this quite a bit. It’s actually very similar to my senior prom dress, which makes me all sorts of nostalgic.
