I guess all the stylists got the memo . . .

Evan Rachel Wood in Elie Saab

Penelope Cruz in vintage Balmain

Ann Hathaway in Armani Prive

Taraji P. Henson in Cavalli

Marisa Tomei in Versace

Sarah Jessica Parker in Dior Haute Couture

Jessica Biel in Prada

Melissa George

. . . that strapless white (or the equivalent thereof) was required wearing for A-list actresses (and a few wannabes) . . .

So that makes three nominees for best supporting actress in strapless white, and two nominees for best actress in strapless white. Is this kind of overlap result from borrowing dresses, or is there some kind of conspiracy among Hollywood stylists to level the playing field?

Whatever. I liked the dresses worn by Evan Rachel Wood (my favorite), Penelope Cruz (goooooo VINTAGE!), Taraji P. Henson (very soft and graceful) and Marisa Tomei (I hope she avoids the worst dressed lists this time). The rest were meh.

And SJP demonstrated, yet again, the problem with strapless dresses -- they have to fit exactly right to look good. Hers didn't.
