I am very pleased with the Oscars Fashion overall. I actually struggled to narrow down my 5 best dressed, which is a big deal compared to disappoint of the previous awards shows of 2015. My favorite by far though was Emma Stone in Elie Saab.
I mean honestly, isn’t she just perfection in this dress? The color pairs so well with her fair skin and red hair. I’m loving the high slit and high neckline combination, too, so that it reveals just enough. Not to mention the gorgeous details of the beading. Absolutely flawless.
Anna Kendrick was stunning in this Thakoon gown. Again, perfect color with her skin tone. I also like that the dress is rather simple with just a great cut-out placement and pretty neckline.
Rosamund Pike nailed it in this Givenchy gown. I am loving that this dress is form fitting with a high slit, but no low neckline, and the detailing of the fabric is just beautiful.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum looked gorgeous in this Zuhair Murad dress. The beading, low neckline, and fit are all just right here.
Another beautiful Zuhair Murad gown to grace the Oscars on Chrissy Teigen. I think this baby blue color is so pretty. I love the intricate beading of the top, the belt, and the flow of the bottom part of this gown.
First of all, why does Solange Knowles get to attend the Oscars? But second of all, this Christian Soriano jumpsuit is a complete fail. It looks like she wrapped a blanket around herself a couple of times and tucked it in around her legs. Maybe if it was more form fitting it could have worked, but it absolutely did not work as is.
Chloe Grace Moretz has so much potential to look amazing in a gown, but this Miu Miu gown would make you think otherwise. I’m really not a fan of gowns with prints at these awards shows, but especially not when the print reminds me of my grandma’s sheets from the 70’s/80’s. The gown also poofs out way too high up, making her look shapeless.
Behati Prinsloo looks like she rolled around in red lint while wrapped in velcro in this Armani Prive gown. The peplum this above the waist doesn’t make sense; the red seems to be much more patchy on the bottom part of the gown; it shouldn’t be see-through at the bottom; and the fishnet/mesh looks like a thin barbed wire fence. Also, terrible choice in hairstyle. Just no.
I read that it took 25 people and 1600 hours to make this Azzedine Alaia dress on Lady Gaga. Well, there are several other more productive things those 25 people could have done with those 1600 hours. The wide sleeves on this gown would not look good on anyone. But most importantly, Lady Gaga looks like she should be in my kitchen washing my dishes for me with those red rubber gloves. So inappropriate for the Oscars.
Keira Knightley seems to know how to disappoint during awards shows. I get that she’s pregnant, but there are way prettier was to style a baby bump than this Valentino disasters. The words on this dress just don’t belong on this dress. Also, the nude color does not work on Keira’s skin tone. This dress has so much potential, but I am so disappointed in the outcome on Keira.
