The Oscars are never gonna blow our minds fashion-wise. You would think that it would, given that the gowns are created by the best in the fashion industry for Hollywood’s most glamorous stars and these dresses go for thousands and thousands of dollars…but, alas, because this is the “serious” awards show, it has the tendency to air on the side of conservative and classicism rather than high-fashion and edginess. So, I figured instead of doing the best of (but stay tuned to the end…I will definitely talk worst), I wanted to show the hottest trends in evening wear that you can now expect to permeate your own fancy nights out.
1. Purple Train
Reese and Tina both looked gorgeous in this universally flattering jewel tone.
2. White and Whimsical
Think bridal white, but add some zest for a more red-carpet-worthy look. Special shout out to Lady Gaga who wore pants (gasp!) to the Oscars.
3. Feeling Blue
Sophia Vergara looked absolutely smashing in Marchesa and while the other blue gowns (Brie Larson and Patricia Arquette) didn’t blow my mind, I found the colour super on-point.
4. Pastel People
Light pink, baby yellow and seafoam green were all a gorgeous nod to Spring. I have to give the honourable mention to Kate Blanchett who delightfully took a risk in her mermaid-y feather and crystal adorned dress from Armani Prive.
5. Kelly Green
This colour is not for the faint of heart…it evokes images of St. Patty’s day, which similarly involves parading, but probably a lot more beer. I hated both of these dresses, but at least the colour was DIFFERENT. For that, Irish eyes are smiling 🙂
And, now: THE WORST
1. Margot Robbie: When attending the Oscars, please do not dress up as one…even if you are wearing Tom Ford
2. Whoppie Goldberg: What?!? A horribly matronly dress which then show off your sleeve tattoo and what the heck is attacking your hand?
3. Olivia Wilde: We get it, you have your baby body back (in Versace)…we still wish you would have worn something more awesome and less I-raided-the-costume-department-from-the-latest-Star-Wars-movie.
4. Heidi Klum: Fire your stylists…wardrobe and hair…Barbie wants her dress back.
