2016 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Fashion
Unlined Gowns + Lots of Skin


If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you should know that I hate unlined dresses. I just don't understand the trend. If you want to show off your legs and girly bits, wear a short dress. Why ruin a beautiful gown by leaving out an important layer?

I liked more of the dresses from the after-parties than I did from the actual awards ceremony.

Let's have a look.


DIANE KRUGER | SARA SAMPAIO
Both of these dresses could have been stunning if they were lined.
I especially love Sara's dress.


MICHELLE MONAGHAN | EMILY RATAJKOWSKI
Michelle's dress says granny panties.
Emily's dress screams weird lingerie.


DEMI LOVATO | PETRA NEMCOVA
Once again, both of these would be great if they were lined.


LILY COLLINS | KATE HUDSON
I don't like either of these.


FREIDA PINTO | MIRANDA KERR
I'm not feeling these either.


PAULA PATTON | GABRIELLE UNION
I think the cutout on Paula's is too big.
Gabrielle's would be better without the slits.


JENNIFER LAWRENCE | OLIVIA MUNN
I feel like the style of Jennifer's isn't doing her any favors.
Olivia's dress might be ok without the cutouts. At least her boobs might fit then...

I laughed because you said you liked more dresses at the after-party but then not a single one did you say you liked, ha! I am so sick of Kate Hudson showing all her bits - it's like JLo 2.0. Lily Collins would have been really good without the center slit - I am not a fan AT ALL! Diane Kruger's could have been AMAZING.

I am digging Diane's dress but more lining would be better. She looks nice and it fits her well, but I'm waiting for her to start belly dancing with the hip fringe.

yeah, double NO on Michelle and Emily. Very strange!

No I did like Kate Hudson's dress, mostly because again, it makes me think of Goldie... And I'm sure she sauntered around the party much like her mother would have in the 80's :)

I agree with the others.

Jennifer - seems uncomfortable like the top might fall down at anytime. I do love her hair though.

Um, Olivia what is that? And I am so over BOTTOM boob. Side boob, OK, but bottom boob just looks like you forgot to place the girls in their rightful positions!

These are all horrible. Ugh. Some would have been better had they been lined, but as shown, they are terrible. And I have no idea who Emily Ratajkowski is, but seriously, why would she wear that in public if she's not walking the runway at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show??

These are not good! I especially hate Kate Hudson's dress! Despite the dress, Gabrielle Union looks amazing!
