20 Best & Worst Oscar Looks

It may be the night of film but the real winners (and losers) are chosen on the red carpet. Here’s a list of the best and worst looks of the night.

Best: Jessica Chastain
The Best Supporting Actress nominee strove away from her simple red carpet looks and donned a black and gold Alexander McQueen gown. We love the contrast between the tight bustier and flowing skirt. She completed her look with loose curls and Harry Winston yellow diamond jewels worth $2 million!

Best: Emma Stone
Emma proved just how smart she is. She chose a gown that closely resembled Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga from the 2008 Oscars. It was a hit then and it is a hit now. She paired the scarlet Giambattista Valli dress with Louis Vuitton rubies.

    I find your choices “Ageist”. 4-5 of your 9 Worst were women over 45. Coincidental…I don’t think so.

    Are you for real? Do you seriously believe that Jolie looked good in that stupid dress? The dress wore HER, she did not wear the dress. And what’s with the leg? Her leg looks scrawny, like a little boy’s leg.

    And you seriously have to be on drugs to say that Sandra Bullock’s dress wasn’t great, but that Rooney Mara’s was. Do you people need glasses? Sandra’s gown was elegance personified. If it had been “tight” as you want, it would not have the drape it has, nor would the gold detailing be so well highlighted. And it is original, another star for this dress. You didn’t see this on everyone. Marchesa (Bullock) and Tom Ford (Paltrow) were the real winners in the fashion department.

    Rooney’s dress looks like the designer forgot to finish the top of the dress. It seriously looks like it is inside out, not exactly the grunge look you want on the red carpet. It hangs poorly, and is completely unflattering, and not helped by that ridiculous hairstyle.

    Shelley and Diane,

    Thank you for your comments. I always appreciate feedback, especially when there is a different point-of-view.

    To Shelley’s comment regarding potential ageism in my commentary – I am 47 years old and proud of it!

    I wish you a wonderful weekend.

    Best,

    Melissa
