From red, nude and white dresses, to middle parts and buns… there were many trends that emerged from the red carpet at the 2015 Oscars. But I’m here to pick apart every seam, stray hair, statement necklace and red lip. Here are my picks for the Best & Worst Dressed 2015 Oscars edition.
8. Keira Knightley in Valentino. I adore this ethereal look on the pregnant actress, which features quotes from Dante. Keira also is my favourite makeup look of the night, her lips are perfect and her skin and contouring are flawless – you could cut someone with those razor sharp cheekbones.
7. Emma Stone in a green Elie Saab gown. This redhead has done the impossible and wore chartreuse on the red carpet. No one with olive skin could pull this off, but Stone’s fair complection and fiery hair is offset by this daring beaded frock.
6. Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein. This gown used 6,000 pearls and I can only imagine the little imprints on her skin after sitting through THE AWARDS CEREMONY THAT DIDN’T END! I hope she had a cushion for her tush, but she claimed it was comfortable!
5. Chrissy Teigen in Zuhair Murad was gorgeous and so sexy. She was the hottest arm candy of the night and I love the daring leg slit, Nudist sandals and her deep red pout. Can I have your hair? Just for a night!
4. Margot Robbie slayed the red carpet with this Saint Laurent sheer chiffon robe dress. I love the necklace and her cool haircut.
3. Rosamund Pike wasn’t a Gone Girl on the red carpet, she wore a gorgeous red Givenchy gown, and monochromatic red sandals.
2. Jessica Chastain turned heads with this incredible Givenchy number that highlighted her ample assets. I love that she went with sleek straight hair for a change!
1. JLo is my best dressed pick, but she doesn’t deserve to be there. The Elie Saab dress is STUNNING, but I’m downright pissed off she wore this as a presenter. This stunning gown belonged on a nominee… (Felicity Jones would have been my pick for this dress), it was OTT but gorgeous. The dress alone takes the top spot, but I’m still reeling that no one else had the chance to snag it from the showroom.
7. Marion Cotillard in Dior Haute Couture. Everyone was kissing this French woman’s ass, when all I see is a white towel bunched together. We all hated Jennifer Lawrence’s white Dior gown at the Golden Globes a couple years ago, and I think this one has a similar concept – white fabric, tied together with black ribbon, but way worse. The front isn’t anything to write home about either and her hairstyle is uninspired. Next.
6. Patricia Arquette in Rosetta Getty. It’s a black and white dress. Yawn. Just like Reese Witherspoon, these picks were safe, predictable and boring. I wish she at least added eye-catching jewelry or a statement clutch with this tame dress as the backdrop!
5. Naomi Watts in Armani. I loathed this dress at first, but it’s growing on me. The bejewelled bandeau is a little too Brandy Melville for my taste on the red carpet, but I appreciate the subversion. What I really don’t like is the print of the beading on the rest of the dress, how cool would it have been if it were a solid?
4. Gwenyth Paltrow in Rene & Russo Couture. Oh Gwenyth, your elevated one-sleeved, cotton candy, floral corsage gown is dated and out of touch (just like you!) I want to rip off that flower (Carrie did it better) and wipe that smug grin off her face. Did you know I hate Gwenyth?
3. Lady Gaga broke the internet when she arrived on the red carpet looking like she had just taken the cookies out of the oven in her custom Azzedine Alaia gown. The dress was gorgeous, but those orange gloves make Amal’s Golden Globe get up look normal.
2. Solange Knowles wore this. I don’t even know what to say… She’s wearing a tomato-hued turtleneck onesie complete with balloon pants with pockets. So. much. wrong.
1. Nicole Kidman wore this sequin gown with a tomato orange belt and also debuted a new LOB crop. The dress looks like it’s off the rack at Macy’s and for that, she is my worst dressed at the 2015 Oscars.
This Best & Worst Dressed 2015 Oscars post raps up my red carpet coverage for the season, but thankfully awards season went out with a slow, painfully long ceremony. Can’t wait to see what Milan & Paris fashion weeks have in store for us.
