It seems that the secretary look is making a comeback. Or attempting to, at the very least.
Whoopi Goldberg's Oscars outfit left us wondering where her source of inspiration came from. The baggy blouse/skirt/dress combo makes us think that The View host is either trying to rechannel her Sister Act days...or was she perhaps imitating Julia Roberts?
The August: Osage County star wore a black strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress over a white blouse to the Golden Globes, finishing off the look with a sequin belt.
While mixing corporate with couture was a risky move on Julia's part, the fitted style on her is much more figure flattering. Whoopi gets lost in the excess fabric, which gives her outfit a frumpier feel, and the oversized pearl necklace only adds to the "bulk" factor of her look.
Between the two, our vote is going to have to go to Julia. What's your take?
