"Up In the Air" ingenue Anna Kendrick chose a sweeping, pale-mint Marchesa gown embroidered with silvery fronds. The tulle unfurled into a series of structured ruffles at her chest, curving up and around the shoulder and revealing just a hint of cleavage.
Diane Kruger, one of the few ladies among the "Inglorious Basterds," took the ruffle trend in a fresh direction. Her multi-hued pink tulle bustier gown from the now defunct Christian Lacroix Haute Couture collection waved around her shoulders in dozens of layers. These tightly packed petals brought to mind a Tara Donovan sculpture. Kruger completed her look with a Raven Kauffman white "Muse" clutch.
Chloë Sevigny's lilac Valentino gown virtually sandwiched her in ruffles. The organza dress from the designer's Spring 2010 collection trumpeted the fashion house's newly romantic look, hinting at "Alice in Wonderland" inspiration. Soft ruffles cascaded down the front and back of the gown, pooling into a short train.
That same stylish train brought the "Big Love" winner to a halt, though, when she shrieked that an usher had stepped on her gown, causing it to rip. (She later changed into a shorter black tulle number for the HBO after-party.)
