2000 – Hillary Swank in Randolph Duke – This was Hillary’s first Oscar (for Boys Don’t Cry — yes, the girl who got fired from Beverly Hills, 90210 won 2 Oscars). Loved the color and style on her and that necklace is just WOW!

2002 – Cameron Diaz in Emanuel Ungaro – This made every Worst-Dressed List that year, but I loved this look from the wrap dress, to the “messy” hair and the accessories, especially the Tarina Tarantino turquoise bracelet.

2009 – Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab – To be fair, is there anything Angelina does not look good in? And, to be more fair, the earrings should take center stage with the dress.
