I think they all look great.

Welcome back!

Jenny said...

So glad to see you! Hope your holidays were magical.

I think I like Amy Adams here...although some of the other dresses are quite gorgeous.

Thanks for a stylish stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "N"!

Definitely a nifty link.

How fun! Lovin' 2, 5 and 9, but my favorite is 10-so pretty:@)

Jo said...

So glad to see you back Lola! I've been missing your take on fashion for far too long ... of course i just love love love the Marachesa for Helena Bonham Carter ... it would look fab on her, she looks best wicked! I dont think Lea Michele is tall enough to pull off the Oscar ... but is it were minus the shoulder bow it would look devine on her if she wore her hair up ... and I cant help but think ho amazing the Chanel would look on Michelle Williams, geez i wish i was young (and skinny) enough to pull that off, it would totally be in my closet!

Mama Zen said...

Your selection for Angelina Jolie is perfect!

jen said...

Just found you from Jenny Matlock. Love this! You have quite an eye for the fashion, girl! I agree with all choices except Julianna Moore. A little much.

Vintagesouthernlife said...

They are lovely. #10 is my favorite.


I think I like Jenny Packman the best. Some of those are just weird.

Tracy said...

If you have the figure they will flatter even if the fabric and design is not to my taste I would love to fit into them

Theresa said...

I really love 9! Haven't heard of the designer, so learned something new:)

myorii said...

Glad to see you're back for Alphabe-Thursday! I missed seeing all your interesting takes on fashion!

I like most of the dresses that were chosen. Not too sure about the one for Natalie Portman or Michelle Williams. They seem to make the actresses look very weird if they wore them, I think.

marisworld said...

I'll have a Chanel please failing that Ellie Saab?

fredamans said...

Nice to see you back.

Sue said...

Nice to see your fashion return to Alphabe-Thursday!


PS. New of your travel delays just spiked my anxieties, as my son is traveling to DC and really needs to get there! (Deep breath, Sue.)

Judie said...

I like all but Natalie Portman's Dior. If you read my movie review of Black Swan, you will realize that her choice could have been worn in the film, which was pretty bad in my opinion

Maggi said...

Wow, you did awesome on these, I could totally see these stars in these looks!

Draffin Bears said...

dear Nora and Lola,

Lovely to see you back and thanks for visiting me.
Love all the fabulous fashion you have showed here.
Happy New Year and I hope that it will be a wonderful year for you both.


Berlin said...

This post is so fun!
My likes: Number 2(monochromatic and stands out with minimal effort), 3(interesting design), 9 (color kind of gloomy but the flow is wonderful), and 11 & 12 are just pow wow!


bichonpawz said...

It is hard to decide!!! We like Hallie Berry, Nicole Kidman and Anne Hathaway! Welcome Back Lola and Nora...we missed you both!!! xoxo Chloe, LadyBug and the Mama

Pondside said...

You were missed!
None of these really says 'fabulous' to me. Perhaps it's the silhouette - not sure.

Gingeyginge said...

Thank you for stopping by..Hope your in good health and that your new years going well.I actually like the last dress,maybe I should get one to go to the supermarket in,what do you think?

Len♥reNeverM♥re said...

Hi darling!
Lurrrve the Givenchy gown!!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Welcome back safe and sound :o) I must say that whatever Halle Berry wears would look great. ..I do like the Givenchy dress and also the one for Angelina Jolie (did Nicole Kidman wear something like that before?)
And the one for Lea Michele-love the classic look of it.
Marchesa's designs are too much for me :o)

Thanks for sharing!
Blessings & Aloha!
