A Satisfactory, Sumptuous Oscar Night
The stars gave us the fashion show we wanted this year.

With all the neutral and silver tones on this red carpet, I was happy to see a bright-canary-yellow Versace dress worn by Jane Fonda. This should quash any belief that Versace is only for the 20s and 30s crowd, as Jane is 75 and couldn’t have looked better than she did. Versace understands its customers’ needs and requirements, and Jane Fonda’s dress is proof of that. The embroidery accentuates her waist, and the sleeves didn’t age this piece in any way. Her bag, which matched the dresses embroidery, was a fabulous touch, as were her delicate earrings, which also seemed to blend perfectly. (Perhaps they were all Versace?)
