Your morning fashion and beauty report: Oscars recap, John Galliano's troubles mount, and Kirsten Dunst semi-nude in sultry perfume ad

February 28, 2011 |  8:45 am

If you're still on an Oscar high, recap with All the Rage! The fashions were understated and gorgeous, as Melissa Magsaysay reported, meaning our best-and-worst gallery is really best-and-pretty-darn-good. See it here.

And our Adam Tschorn took a look at what the men were wearing. The males don't get the same kind of attention as the females at these big awards shows unless they do something, well, weird. No one did Sunday night, and there were some smart looks striding confidently along the red carpet, Tschorn reported

Ahathaway Part of the fun of being an Oscar host? Anne Hathaway got to wear eight different outfits, from the red Valentino ruffled gown she wore on the red carpet to the Atalier Versace she donned for the Governor's Ball after the ceremony. In between she was decked out in (among others) Givenchy's haute couture crystal-embellished chiffon; a Lanvin tux; an Oscar de la Renta 1920s-inspired one-shoulder with beaded tassle embroidery; a tight, shiny purple-sapphire gown from Girogio Armani Prive; and a long-sleeved, high-neck embellished lace dress from Tom Ford.

And of course she changed her hair right along with her outfits, thanks to hairdresser Adir Abergel of Frederic Fekkai. [StyleList]

Not to be overlooked, some of the wives of stars were worthy of fashion attention, including Matthew McConaughey's spouse, Camila Alves, and Mark Wahlberg's wife, Rhea Durham. [StyleBistro]

Meanwhile, as we gear up for Paris Fashion Week, John Galliano's troubles are mounting. After he was briefly arrested on charges related to an altercation Thursday night and suspended as creative director of Dior on Friday, a video surfaced over the weekend of him making anti-Semitic comments in an unrelated incident [People] A second complaint of making anti-Semitic statements was filed against him Saturday. [WWD] Police have ordered him to meet with all the complainants -- including an Asian man he allegedly also insulted in Thursday's incident -- on Monday. [The Cut] 

The fashion world has a growing enthusiasm for live-streaming, Twitter and other technology to reach a larger audience. [WWD] 

Kirsten Dunst's first ad for Bulgari's Mon Jasmir Noir fragrance has surfaced, featuring a lion and the actress posing semi-nude and holding an over-sized perfume bottle. [Huffington Post]
