Marisa Tomei has also opted for a dark deep blue dress for the 2011 Oscars Red Carpet. Only instead of falling for the latest designers collection, she chose a vintage 1950 couture dress from Charles James (from Lily et Cie). A while back, Penelope Cruz opted for a white vintage Pierre Balmain dress for the Oscars Red Carpet, so you might as well go on and say that vintage is de rigueur for the Oscar wardrobe.
Accessorizing her dress, Marisa was wearing Van Cleef and Arpels jewelry and Jimmy Choo shoes. Though I admit it’s a dress I saw more fit for the Met’s American Costume Institute gala, I admire Marisa’s choice and her originality. I’m sure there wasn’t anyone dressed like her tonight!
