Glamour ruled on Hollywood’s biggest night, and “Slumdog Millionaire” star Freida Pinto was brilliant in a blue John Galliano gown, supporting actress winner Penelope Cruz donned a 60-year-old Balmain and best actress winner Kate Winslet dazzled in a one-shoulder number from Yves Saint Laurent.
Stars like Heidi Klum and Natalie Portman added splashes of color, but many stars including Anne Hathaway, Cruz, Taraji P. Henson and Evan Rachel Wood wore white and other light colors.

US Weekly Fashion Director Sasha Charnin Morrison listed Anne Hathaway and Angelina Jolie as two of her favorites, saying Marisa Tomei and Renee Zellweger’s looks were “clunkers.” Meanwhile, style expert Michael O’Connor said his top choices were Eva Mendes and Drew Barrymore.
In the past two years, a lot has been written in the media — including by Reuters – that movies about modern war simply haven’t worked at box offices while real world battles rage in Iraq and Afghanistan. Audiences, the experts say, don’t want to escape to a movie theater and be confronted by images they see almost daily on TV news and in newspapers.
But along comes John Cusack in “War, Inc.,” which according to its studio backers has been winning fans and building ticket sales with a satirical tale of a country, Turaqistan, occupied by a private U.S. company run by a former U.S. vice president who hires a hit man (Cusack) to kill an oil minister.
