In the 2012 battle for Oscar Fashion supremacy Giorgio Armani came flying out of the blocks. His show timing and guest list were fortuitously timed so that while the audience were in their seats waiting for the show to begin, Jessica Chastain's phone rang in the front row with the news of her nomination. Which put Armani in pole position to Fashioning her even before the show, which was a formidable display of red carpet prowess. Sculpted bodices segued into slender, wraparound colums or into grand, queenly skirts. The fabrics - flurries of feathers, petals of organza, sequinned mesh, three dimensional domed sequins - neatly pulled rank on anything you can find on a rack. So far, so Red Carpet 101. The surprise was the colours: Armani ignored nude, black or scarlet and embarked on a mission to turn the red carpet green with dresses exclusively in absinthe, ivy, lime and chartreuse. Hey, has anyone mentioned to Jessica Chastain how good red hair looks with green ? what your comment about that?
