This week’s Sally Award for the best party look of the week goes to Julianne Moore who practically rolled up and stole the Oscar red carpet last Sunday in a masterpiece of a gown created for the actress by Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel. According to Chanel, it took 27 workers 987 hours to create the show-stopping organza dress, which featured 80,000 “small, white, hand-painted resin sequins and flowers made of ivory, beige and black organza, tulle and sequins.”
Moore’s deep-parted low chignon, styled by Marcus Francis, and glamorous makeup by Elaine Offers added the perfect final and very French touches of elegance to her look. To get the perfect warm shade of berry for Julianne’s lips, Offers used a combination of two L’Oreal lip colors: Unending Amber, a rose-brown lipstick, and Raisin Revival, a plum-colored gloss. Congratulations are also in order for Leslie Fremar, the stylist behind Moore’s Oscar look. Let’s face it, on Sunday night, Moore was more and then some.
