I know she won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, but Diablo Cody truly needs to change her stylist. She wore a leopard print, silk chiffon gown with jewel detail by Dior by John Galliano. The outfit looked terrible on the red carpet. But it wasn’t until she got up to accept her Oscar did the hideousness of the dress truly come into view. The slit in the front was up to the “goody” and she kept putting her program over the slit to keep it from flying open. This just goes to show you that couture isn’t always so beautiful or so right. This dress in a plum or a red with no slit would have complemented her blunt bob haircut, red lips and pale skin.
But one thing I can say about Diablo Cody, born Brook Busey-Hunt is that she seemed, for lack of a better term, ‘real’. Apparently Stuart Weitzman wanted Diablo to wear the $1 Million dollar Retro Rose shoes on the red carpet. She felt disinclined. According to the Associated Press and Ms. Cody’s MySpace page, “they’re using me to publicize their stupid shoes and nobody asked me.”
The folks at Stuart Weitzman believed there was a disconnect between the two camps about the value and honor of wearing the shoes. Well I say, good for her for speaking up. She didn’t want to be seen wearing something so extravagant, I guess. But honestly Diablo, didn’t want to get a look at them? And kudos to you for not bowing down to pressure and keeping it 100% by wearing flats.
The 1940’s style retro t-strap high heels have more than 1,800 Kwiat diamonds weighing about 100 carats. Hmm… they’re OK, but not really that hot.
