Despite the current trend for monochrome, we’re likely to be entrapped in a prism of colours on the red carpet at Sunday’s 85th Academy Awards in Hollywood.
The lure of the rainbow is too strong for the colourful characters of Tinseltown, so in the run up to the big night we’re seeing a lot of plain outfits.
And Alyssa Milano proved that plain doesn’t have to mean unflattering by slipping into a sexy fitted shift dress at a Vanity Fair party held at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood.
The Charmed star went for the classic shift with peep-toe pumps and slicked back hair to exacerbate the streamlined effect.
She completed the look with classic gold jewellery and a claret coloured lipstick.
The event’s full name was Vanity Fair and the Fiat brand Celebration of Una Notte Verde with Hans Zimmer and Ron Howard in support of The United Nations International Labour Organization and the Green Jobs Programme.
And plenty of actors were happy to lend their names to the good cause.
Lake Bell nipped at Alyssa’s ankles in the style stakes by slipping into a stunning lace number.
The dress was a winner in that it was sexy and revealed nothing at all.
