For all the talk about Jessica Chastain’s copper-coloured Armani Prive, Jennifer Lawrence’s sweep-you-off-your-feet Dior Haute Couture and Naomi Watts’ out-of-this-world Giorgio Armani, very little has been said about Alicia Vikander’s Elie Saab. So let’s change that.
I absolutely love it for its understated glamour, its dusty blue colour and its detail (just imagine how beautiful it must be in person). But the piece that, well, ties it all together is that simple yellow belt. With a more complicated accessory in any other colour, it would have gone in a completely different direction, but that golden swish of fabric is just magic.
Fitting that she was in the film that won best costume design, isn’t it?
