The most “charmant” dress on the Red Carpet

For me the winner is Marisa Tomei: she wore a rare gown by Lily et Cie 1950 Charles James Couture Gown on the red carpet at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles. To complete the look, Tamara Mellon and Rita Watnick designed a custom, one of a kind shoe by Jimmy Choo. The shoes are crafted from navy blue satin accented with Swarovski crystals hand sewn and strung with a delicate “chandelier” draping over the foot with heels inspired by baroque and rococo architectural elements. Marisa completed the look with multi colored sapphire suite from Van Cleef & Arpels and a Kotur clutch. (From The Fashion Patrol)
