The Academy Awards have come and gone, and all we have to show for it is red carpet pictures of beautiful people in questionable clothes. What better ways to honor our beloved celebrities than to nitpick at their style choices in the hopes that they will do better next time. I have to say that though I was relatively pleased with most of the dresses, no one really stood out as a surefire best dressed candidate. Check it out and you be the judge.
Not your average McQueen and that’s what made it work for her. The colour suits her and the neckline is a nice departure from the usual strapless look.
Though her red carpet look was beautiful, this one took the cake. Great colour and I like that she kept with the neckline. This performance also took my breath away.
Not the most effective or noticeable colour but how dramatic is that skirt?!
It’s not very different from what she usually wears but she does look pretty. That being said, her hair looks nicer down.
A lot of people compared her to Gwyneth Paltrow in this number, and even more people wondered of she sparked the nipple dialogue on purpose. Either way, the dress was pretty enough, but the hair left much to be desired. It’s at that awkward length where it’s not quite Mia Farrow, but not quite Audrey Hepburn either. Her makeup looks great.
Like her Les Mis costar, Amanda Seyfried, she looked much more glam in her second dress of the evening. Softer and show stopping.
The only reason I even bothered to include this is because I’m hoping someone can tell me what the hell she was doing at the Academy Awards. Isn’t she a Real Housewife of somewhere? On that note, her dress is too small and slipping off.
Velma Kelly came dressed as Oscar this year. It’s a pretty dress and those swirls seem to be the new “in” thing. (see Nicole Kidman below)
You know that it was killing every other woman on the red carpet that, even with a recently buzzed head, Charlize put everyone else to shame and then, just to pour salt on the wound, danced with Channing Tatum.
Jamie Foxx brings his daughter to the awards every year and she just keeps upping her game. Girl is gorge.
Okay, so it’s kind of Mob Wives but I still loved it. When girl goes Versace, she goes Versace.
Stunning as always.
There was a big thing over whether or not Hunt was paid to wear this dress on the RC. I don’t see what the big deal is, most of these stars are wearing $10,000 dresses for free. Who cares if she wore a $650 dress and got paid? The only thing that really bothers me is how wrinkled it is. This is the Oscars.
Old faithful. If anything she’s consistent.
There’s something to be said for the French and their sense of style. He is the very definition of dapper.
Girl is feeling good about herself and she wants you to know it. Not her usual go-to look but it’s a beautiful colour and the ball gown is fun for this type of event. The hair is awful.
She was absolutely sparkling all night long. The colour looks great with her skin tone and the her hair and makeup were flawless. Love the business in the front, party in the back aspect of her dress.
Without a doubt one of the best dressed of the night, even with the fall. This dress came straight off the runway in Paris and fit her like a glove (probably because it was made to measure). Apparently being the face of Dior has its perks.
Another one who came as Oscar, but she made Oscar look good. The vintage look to this dress worked perfectly with her Jessica Rabbit/old Hollywood appeal. A+.
No. There was nothing good about this look. After the stunning look she pulled at the Grammys, everything from the shape, to the colour, to the hair was wrong. That bodice is just off.
The colour here is pretty fantastic and the beading on the bodice is really beautiful, it might have looked even better without the train. The hair could have used something too.
On anyone else this dress would have been stunning, on her it looks ill fitted and uncomfortable, which is kind of her thing. The hair looks dirty and the makeup is awkward.
Finally! Say what you want but this lady knows how to have fun at the Oscars! Beautiful dress and she clearly felt fantastic.
Bubblegum princess perfection. Beauty pageant hair.
Worst look of the night. It actually pains me to say this because I love her in everything she does and she’s so pretty, but there is nothing good about this. She needs something more fitted and way more colour, not to mention lower hair.
When did the journalists become the stars? Well done.
Wearable art. Naomi definitely makes the best dressed list in this dress. Modern without being too costumey, she really nailed this one.
She should wear dresses like this all the time. She has thing for L’Wren Scott, which is great because the silhouettes really enhance her shape, but since she began working on that Grace Kelly biopic she’s been leaning towards the soft, flowing pastels that tend to wash her out. Moral of the story; learn what works for you and stick to it. On a side note, did anyone else notice that the bottom of her dress matched the Oscar stage?
Classy and elegant as ever.
Love! She almost never looks good on red carpets, which is strange because she’s so beautiful, but she really hit this one out of the park. A little costumey, but if there’s a place for that it’s the Oscars.
He looks about as good as he gets and her dress is very pretty too. Leave it to Tarantino to find a girl with the name Spiderbaby.
The colour on this is gorgeous and the shape is perfect on her. Could have done without the bow.
I have to say that I never realized how tiny Salma is! Normally she has this great curvy this going on, not that she looks bad here, just different. That being said I don’t know many people who could have pulled off that neckline. Not my favorite look but I’m calling it a win.
Love the dress, do not love the “T just came from the gym” hair.
Beautiful people looking beautiful. He has been wearing the same Armani tux since the dawn of time and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. She always looks classy and stunning.
I absolutely love this girl’s style. No one is more daring than Miss Saldana on the red carpet and it doesn’t always work in her favor, but here she looks radiant. everything from the detailed bodice to the layers at the bottom is perfection.
