Zoe Saldana wasn't nominated herself, but since her great
Big women like Mo'Nique tend to rely on things like caftans for formal events, but Mo'ique is not the average woman. She likes who she is and her size, and she doesn't care what you think. I love that she wore a strapless dress for the Golden Globes since stylists usually try to cover the arms of anyone who is over 40 and doesn't exercise like a fiend. Stick with being unconventional, Mo'Nique. I think you should march over to Marchesa and tell them you want a knee length version of this ethereal cocktail dress. (Angelic will be a good look after Precious.) If you want to be more traditional with your shape choice, how about this luscious red strapless gown that recently hit the runway at Monique Lhuiller?
Maggie Gyllenhaal is known for her bold style and I hope she doesn't try to play in safe just because she's been nominated for a big award. I'd lover her to embrace a funky trend like prints, feathers, sheer or shoulders. Chanel recently presented a strong shoulder dress with conflicting metallic and tulle textures. Honestly, it's exactly the sort of oddness I'd expect from this indie queen. Or she could go even further against the flow with an amazing suit like this one from Armani Prive. Do it, Maggie! Make everyone waggle their tongues about how you "dared" to wear pants.
