I love Oscars night. Last night a bunch of my girlfriends came over for the red carpet, and we talked fashion, played games, and ate some delicious snacks. Obviously, the best part of the Oscars is the red carpet. The actual awards show is a little rough. It’s just SO long. And they make you wait until the end for anything good to happen. I fell asleep around 10:45, so I missed all the exciting stuff. However, I did check out Common and John Legend’s performance this morning, which was just as powerful as everyone said it was. It looks like Birdman was the big winner last night, which I still haven’t seen. I was a little surprised that Boyhood didn’t win more, but I was thrilled to see that Eddie Redmayne won the Oscar for best actor in The Theory of Everything. He was excellent. But on to the good stuff—the fashion.
To be honest, I wasn’t blown away by the fashion overall last night. I think the problem was that a lot of the dresses were just kind of blah—not very exciting or original. Here were some of the okay-est dresses of the night:
None of these ladies looked bad. In fact, they looked absolutely gorgeous. But I just expect so much more from the Oscars. I need more sparkle, more wow-factor. These dresses were fine, but that’s all they were. I wanted more.
And then, of course, we have the worst dressed ladies of the night:
To be honest, there were a lot of bad dresses. (Can we even put Lady Gaga on the worst dressed list anymore? I feel like she’s in a league of her own. I’m kind of beginning to feel that way about Keira Knightly, too). Still, these were some of my least favorite. I know a lot of people liked Sienna Miller’s dress, but I hated the bows. It just didn’t feel like it belonged on the red carpet. And Lorelei Linklater…just no. But perhaps worst of all:
I mean, WHAT is happening here? The hair, the dress, the neck thing—it’s just all so bad.
Of course, the best part of the night is the good dresses—the swoon-worthy dresses that make it worth the 5+ hours of your life that you lost watching this thing. Here were my favorite looks of the night:
These ladies looked amazing. In my mind, Jennifer Aniston can do no wrong. This dress fit her so well, and I just love sparkles on the red carpet. Margot Robbie turned out to be one of my favorite looks of the night—she was just SO chic. The cut of her dress, the red lipstick, the necklace—all amazing. And then Naomi Watts. I honestly don’t know what it is about this dress. It’s honestly a little weird and sporty for the red carpet, but I think that’s why I like it. There wasn’t a whole lot of different on the red carpet last night. A lot of people played it safe, and this was unexpected. She looked gorgeous.
And then this girl:
Granted, the dress doesn’t photograph that well, but I truly adore Emma Stone. I wish we were best friends. And I think she looked fabulous last night—her dress was unique and looked incredible with her hair and skin. So pretty.
All in all, a good (and long) night. Until next year! XO
