WHERE & WHEN: 85th Academy Awards on February 24, 2013.
WEARING: Vivienne Westwood
MY VERDICT: It was no surprise to see Helena turn to her favorite designer Vivienne Westwood for the Oscars red carpet. The “Les Misèrables” actress selected a square neck black evening gown with sheer tiers that appeared in an almost gradient effect as it turned into grey and ivory layers. I liked the style of the dress, but it appeared very heavy on Helena and seemed a bit ill-fitting at the waist and bust head-on. It was smart to partner the dress with a simple pretty necklace and black platform pumps, but Helena’s hair was so messy. It was like a prom ‘do…the next day.
