the last ten years of pretty pretty dresses

i hope everyone had a fab evening ringing in the new year!  in honor of this new year and - even better - a new decade, let's see a recap of the twelve best dresses of the last ten years according to in style.  and let's judge them.  i know we're all good at that. 

#1 - kate hudson in versace, 2003

{love her.  love the dress.  i give the dress a 10.}



#2 - anne hathaway in armani prive, 2009

{my girl anne's such a classic beauty, so she always looks great.  i'm honestly not too crazy about this dress.  i like parts of it, but the top and the very bottom just aren't making my heart flutter.  sorry, armani prive.  it's not personal.}



#3 - charlize theron in vera wang, 2000

{this woman is utterly gorgeous and would look good in a trash bag, but i'm kind of ehhh about this dress.}



#4 - eva mendes in dior, 2009

{totally OBSESSED with this dress.  i would wear it to work.  everyday.  e.m. looks hawt and love the tourquoise necklace.}



#5 - penelope cruz in chanel couture, 2007

{love the dropped waist of this gown, and even though it looks like a couple hundred birds were killed for this dress, it's kind of cool.  i would have liked it more in another color.}



#6 - gwen stefani in valentino, 2004

{there's no denying gwen has got some kickass style, but i just don't know how much i like this particular dress on her.  it almost looks like it's made out of a stretch jersey, which reminds me of a hoodie sweatshirt.}



#7 - jessica alba in dolce and gabbana, 2005

{j. alba looks amazing in anything.  love the top part of the dress, not into the length too much.  seems kind of awkward or unfinished.}



#8 - kate winslet in atelier yves saint laurent, 2009

{like it, don't love it.  top part's sexy.}



#9 - sarah jessica parker in chanel couture, 2003

{okay, okay - i know there's a lot of sjp and sitc fans out there, but i don't care for sjp or sitc.  she always looks really old and weathered to me like she's been in the sun for too long and smoking too many cigs.  sorry, i know it's blasphemous to some of you.  just spitting to truth.  oh, and the dress - like the top, hate the bottom.}



#10 - drew barrymore in alberta ferretti, 2009

{loved little drew and e.t. and love her in this dress.  it's totally her style.}



#11 - joy bryant in donna karen, 2005

{love the dress, love the color, very sexy and flattering.}



#12 - reese witherspoon in nina ricci, 2007

{i def like her shoes more than her dress.  kind of looks like what some girls wore to homecoming or prom in high school.  what i love most is actually her hair.  i'm loving the bangs.  my hairdresser says my face to small for bangs and they'll make me look younger.  whatevs, i'll show her.  sorry, i digressed.}



i have to say my top two faves are dresses #4 and #11.  what are your faves??  wish this was a giveaway and whoever brought me the most new stalkers would get the dress of their choice...  wouldn't that be nice.  maybe we'll have a little giveaway in 2010 here at (flash) pasteurized.  just a little something to look forward to.

keep your pants on this weekend, i'll be back monday with the usual antics.  and i'll also be back in the office, so i'm sure i'll have tons to bitch tell you all about.

Rasha (andthisiswhatshesaid) said...

Gorgeous ladies.

Taylor @ Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too said...

oh I LOVE this post!!! Ive been obsessed with the E.M. Dior dress since she wore it...I could live in that too!

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

1 & 4. And I agree with absolutely everything you said. Everything. Though I think I like SJP's dress a little more than you did.

Mrs Montoya said...

Super cool post. I dig #1 a LOT and am with ya on Joy Bryant in the orange dress. I don't love SJP either, but my hubby's had a crush on her since Footloose. Other than that I think he's great :)

Elizabeth Marie said...

The white dress Eva is wearing is my favorite. Way to go Rachel Zoe. Joy Bryant is pure sex love it!

ScoMan said...

One and ten are both fantastic. One in particular was breathtaking.

Did I just use "breathtaking" to describe a dress?

Hmm...

A Mom With A View said...

I think I like 1 tooo...not 4 or 7 at all...your right about SJP..but I love her and the show and the movie...it just keeps on giving..I dont know why but everytime I watch an episode..i still laugh like the first time..and its not about the sex or hot guys on there either..it just makes me laugh...Ha Ha ha..!!

jessalyn said...

my fave is 4. not only is it an amazing dress, but she rocks it. not that they aren't all stunning. i agree that sjp resembles magda in there's something about mary, but i love me some sitc...an unlike a mom with a view- for me it is about the sex and hot men. (and yes, it is funny, but sex & men win)

and i have like two followers so i may not bring you the most stalkers, but i am clearly the most obsessed with you. duh.

The Muse said...

Bathwater said...

Anne Hathaway is made for pretty dresses, so elegant and pretty looking!

Southern Cinderella said...

I just came across your blog and it's great! I love the first dress! It's very elegant and classy! Have a Happy New Year!

Kristin said...

Kate's Versace and Eva's Dior are two of my all time favorite looks! I also adored Nicole Kidman's gold Dior in '00 and Maggie G's leopard Lanvin last year. Happy new year!

kys said...

#1 and #10 are my favs. I wanted to vote for Kate Winslet because she is one of my fav. actresses evah but the dress was kinda "meh".

Aunt Juicebox said...

My fave was Drew. She's always my fave. And btw, I am totally not a horse-face (sjp) fan. Feel free to bash her as much as you like for my entertainment. ;)

Summer said...

LOVE them all, but 1, 5, and 7 are my way faves.

Rockin style...

Did you see Rachel Zoe's show about Annes dress? Crrrraaaazy.
