2016 Oscar Fashion
Room for Improvement



Let's get this party started. Last night's Academy Awards were the best I've seen in a long time. Chris Rock absolutely killed it as host. I laughed the entire time. Jennifer Lawrence didn't fall down. I got to see a gorgeous Tom Hardy in the audience a few times. Leo finally won an Oscar. And to top it off, I was extremely pleased with the fashion. I only have a few favorites, but there were a lot of dresses I really really liked. Good job, Hollywood. Here we go...


ALICIA VIKANDER
She had been doing so well...
I love this color against her olive skin.
I don't like the dress at all though.


DAISY RIDLEY
A lot of people love this.
I don't.
It's kind of odd.


SOPHIE TURNER
Bad color for a pale redhead


CHARLOTTE RAMPLING
If Helen Mirren can kill it at this age, why can't she?


OLIVIA WILDE
This is so bad.
And why the choker?


JENNIFER JASON LEIGH
Wrong color
Hate the silhouette


EMILY BLUNT
She's beautiful.
I don't love the dress though.
It's very nineties, no?


HEIDI KLUM
Heidi is so gorgeous.
She hosts a fashion show.
Why the heck does she wear the weirdest gowns?


KERRY WASHINGTON
Her makeup was on point.
I do not like leather for the Oscars.


NAOMI WATTS
Sometimes she gets it right.
Sometimes she doesn't.
The dress isn't horrible, but I'm not a fan.


PATRICIA ARQUETTE
Now this, this is horrible.


TINA FEY
It's a great dress for her.
I would have gone with a bracelet instead of a necklace though.


AMY POEHLER
What the heck is this?
It's the Oscars, Amy.


WHOOPI GOLDBERG
Considering how she normally dresses, this isn't too terribly bad.
For her...

Did we just agree on all of these? Shocker! I feel like Tina's hair was too formal - this year there was softer hair, so that plus changing out the necklace and she could have been a best dressed contender. Emily Blunt - I swear this was at my prom many times over, ha! Olivia Wilde looked terrible. If you saw 45 Years, you'd think Charlotte's dress was just right - bad movie + bad dress! Ha!

I always wait impatiently for your recaps!!!! I know there are more to come with the Oscars and i can't wait!!! I was a bit underwhelmed by everyone..no one really dazzled me. I was surprised at how much Side Boob (capitalized, it's a "thing"- ha) made an appearance.

I didn't watch but have heard most of the highlights... HURRAY for your reviews on the fashion and fare!!!

Oh Daisy... Why? I don't love any of it... at all. She's SO lovely and this makes me sad.

Sophie... why? I agree this color is too pale for her - gosh she's just so beautiful too!

What is with the double pockets on Charlotte's dress?

I don't get Olivia's dress, or hair... is she a bohemian Milkmaid? Have you seen her new show Vinyl? I LOVE IT, but this, I do not love, not one bit. She looks better WITH Jason on her arm though.

Jennifer Jason looks super creepy to me... I keep waiting for her to ask me "Why so serious??"

Emily Blunt - you are so right... so 90's and very "Bridesmaid" 2000's!

I don't GET Heidi's dress... at all... The color is pretty... but its just strange - she looks great from the neck up.

Kerry, nope.

Naomi's dress is cool... sort of Mermaid like, but it doesn't suit her, to me.

Patricia - 90's Homecoming.

Tina - I agree about the necklace but I am digging this color on her!!! Very nice fit too!

Amy - it doesn't work for the Oscars at all, BUT I do like it on her... maybe just for a different show?

Whoopi [must not make joke about Ursala - the accessories made me think it]. Tell Naomi to take her Little Mermaid Ass far from Whoopi, it isn't safe!

I agree with pretty much all you said except I LOVE Naomi's dress and styling.

Was wondering what you'd think ol Alicia Vikander's dress! I love her & think she's stunning but this dress was a bit disappointing, especially when I eventually saw the bottom of it...I think it wasn't Red Carpet enough.
Emily Blunt - terrible colour, she doesn't look good in this at all.
Whoopi - seriously?!
Olivia Wilde & Heidi Klum - worst dresses of the night for me....how does Heidi keep getting it so wrong?!

Daisy looks so harsh. She's a beautiful, young woman and needs to dress and style accordingly.

I actually kind of liked Alicia's dress, but I wish the yellow had been a little deeper.

Jennifer Jason Leigh surprised me because she actually looked normal.

Why is Sophie Turner even AT the Oscars?

Olivia, Heidi and Kerry are just embarrassing themselves.

I thought Tina looked gorgeous.

Christina said...

I thought Chris Rock was pretty great too! It was a good show. Did anyone ever tell us why JLaw wasn't on the red carpet?

I'd love Alicia's dress more if it had a different bottom. Daisy's dress is definitely odd. Heidi looked terrible!
