On to another risk taker, who went in a totally different direction. Halle Berry chose Versace as her dress for the evening. A disclaimer: I am a huge fan of Versace and credit his creations with inspiring me to become a designer myself. So I love the dress for what it is, but question its appropriateness for this particular event. In my humble opinion, the Golden Globes and Academy Awards call for a very elegant and sophisticated fashion selection, and this dress misses the mark if those are the criteria to follow. Prints in general tend to dress down a look, and introduce a “love it or hate it” element. Personally, I like this print, which reads as fresh and modern and new to the industry. Still, a print on the red carpet is a dangerous risk to take, and coupled with major cutouts, the dress begins to look more suited to be worn to the beach over a bikini.
