The Best, Worst, and WTFiest: The 2015 Academy Awards Fashion Review

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | February 23, 2015 |

It was the best of fashion, it was the worst of fashion. No, wait; actually it was more like the meh of fashion. For one of Hollywood’s “biggest nights” (ego? bullshit?), this year’s Oscar garb was rather blasé. It’s not that there weren’t some gorgeously dressed stars, but outside of a few standouts (Jordan Catalano, I’m talking to you), nothing was truly gasp-inducing a la Lupita’s gorgeous 2014 Prada. Still, we love to gawk at all the pretty, don’t we?

Best Dresses:

Rosamund Pike in Givenchy
