Giorgio Armani was one of the first fashion designers to understand the power of dressing celebrities for the red carpet, dressing Jodie Foster for the Oscars way back in 1990 and rescuing her (and later, half of Hollywood) from her own bad taste.
The Italian designer has been a presence on the red carpet ever since. But tonight, he has outdone himself. Foster, who will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, is stunning in a navy blue beaded Armani gown with interesting looking tile-like paillettes on the halter straps. And Olivia Munn is equally gorgeous in a strapless Armani gown with turquoise herringbone beading on the bodice. Both of these gowns feel special. But their designs are measured. They are not overdone or underwhelming.
