Most Improved from the Golden Globes:
Natalie Portman in Rodarte. I didn’t love it, although the color looks gorgeous on her and Rodarte is always a favorite of mine—she looked pretty, happy and comfortable. I wish she’d gone with a contrasting color in her earrings—like a turquoise, yellow, orange, green or even light pink would have really popped. For example, Cameron Diaz’s berry-hued Dior dress + turquoise jewelry:
I like the tassel earrings, but contrasting jewelry would have bumped the interest level way up. I’m not Cammy D fan, but this Oscar look was definitely superior to Natalie’s.
