Black was definitely the dominant color for Oscar gowns this year, with a few red ones thrown in.  I usually love the style of the pregnant-and-absent Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie (as well as new mom Jennifer Lopez), but nobody really stood out to me this year.

Except for Johnny Depp’s longtime girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis.

I love, love, love, love this gown.  I would wear it in a second.  It’s very me.

While Vanessa doesn’t always have the best gowns, this one is fantastic.
