That’s right, people, all my posts today will reference the true 2015 Best Picture and Best Director, and hopefully that’s the only passive-aggressiveness you’ll have to deal with! On to the fabulous clothes, though we truly miss what should have been a much more diverse night (this is a very, very white list).



Best Red Carpet Picture:

No, Wait!

Best Dress:


Naomi Watts in Armani Prive

Extremely Close Runner-Up, and a Perfect Best Actress Dress:

Brie Larson in Gucci

I’m not in love with the belt, but the dress overcomes.


Also Extremely Close Runner-Up, and Would Have Been Perfect Best Actress Dress:

Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein

The Goddess:


Charlize Theron in Dior

Some crazy people didn’t love this dress, which is really just a vehicle to show off Charlize’s perfection. However, the side and back views are better than straight on. Perfect necklace.

Only You Can Get Away with This, Cate:


Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé

All the Lovely, Lovely Dresses:


TIna Fey in Atelier Versace

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture

I prefer the top to the bottom, but overall, lovely wins out.


Daisy Ridley in Chanel Haute Couture

Margot Robbie in Tom Ford

margot-robbie2016aa.jpg

Not personally a fan of gold, but Robbie carries it off beautifully.


Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton

alicia-vikander2016aa.jpg

The bottom is not my favorite, but she looked GORGEOUS in the color, fresh and springlike.


Sofía Vergara in Marchesa

Priyanka Chopra in Zuhair Murad

Mindy Kaling in Elizabeth Kennedy

Whoopi Goldberg in Danes of NY (based on Bette Davis’ All About Eve dress.)

Gorgeous Despite the Dress aka We Love You, But You Deserve Better:


Jennifer Garner in Atelier Versace

jennifer-garner2016aa1.jpg

Love that she chose a strong look, but overall, it’s too severe. It feels like a superfancy mourning dress. Something’s not working with the top, either.


Julianne Moore in Chanel

julianne-moore2016aa.jpg

The top of this dress isn’t doing any favors.


Reese Witherspoon in Oscar de la Renta

Speaking of tops…


We Admire Your Comfort Level, But Wish This Was Less Furniture Inspired:


Amy Poehler in Andrew Gn

Still, Amy is wearing the fuck out of this dress.


We Really Wanted to Love This, But…


Kerry Washington in Versace

MEH:


Jennifer Jason Leigh in Marchesa

JenniferJasonLeigh2016aa.jpg

Hot, toilet-paper (H/T EvenStevens) mess!


Sophie Turner in Galvan

sophie-turner2016aa1.jpg

Turner would have looked so much better in more color. Speaking of…


Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture

rooney-mara2016aa.jpg

There is something about this I find pretty, but it also reminds me of a granny bootie (shoe, not derriere!), and I’m not fond of the cutout. And with Mara’s fair complexion, she’s basically the perfect #OscarSoWhite symbol.


Rachel McAdams in August Getty Atelier

rachel-mcadams2016aa.jpg

The wrinkles and the top just didn’t do McAdams or the dress justice.


What Is Happening aka Worst Dress:


Heidi Klum in Atelier Versace

AH-DORABLE:


Jacob Tremblay in Armani
