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.

Best: Taylor Swift
Taylor donned her most mature look on the red carpet, sparkling in a silk Zuhair Murad mermaid gown. “It’s one of my favorite dresses I’ve gotten to wear,” she told Seacrest before the show. “I saw it months ago, and I said ‘We’ve got to save this for the Grammys.’” We can see why!

Worst: Nikki Minaj
Nikki’s goal has to be to appear on every worst dressed list! Her scarlett Versace cape with striking black beading was daring, but that’s the only nicety we’ll give her! With a pope look-alike on her right arm, all we can think is – How sacrilegious can you get? Oh wait, then there was her Grammy performance…

Best: Rihanna
Rihanna’s latest tattoo and recent reports that she went back to Chris Brown had us worried she was headed for a breakdown. If she is, you would never know it by looking at her. She was an absolute knockout in a Giorgio Armani dress she helped design. If this is what going crazy looks like, sign us up!

2012 SAG Awards Best And Worst

Best: Sofia Vergara
It doesn’t even seem worth it to mention how amazing Sofia Vergara looked at last night’s SAG Awards. It’s like saying the sky is blue. At this point we know she’s going to show up in a gorgeous dress with great hair and makeup.

Best: Emily Blunt
Emily Blunt showed up wearing one of our favorite looks of the night. Not only did the neon green hue compliment her dark locks and creamy skin, but it’s one of the hot colors for this coming Spring.

Worst: Busy Phillips
Do you think Michelle Williams ever gets embarrassed showing up with best friend Busy Phillips? She often ends up on the Worst Dressed list, and this hideous ensemble is just one example of why.

Natalie’s post-baby body looked amazing draped in this maroon Giambattista Valli gown. Her simple hair and makeup helped keep the focus on her frock.

Best: Zoe Saldana
Zoe had our jaws dropping for two reasons last night. She wowed in this white Givenchy number and she showed up with co-star Bradley Cooper, fueling rumors that the two are dating. Not sure what we want more: the dress or her date.

Worst: Kristen Wiig
This dress might actually have looked fantastic on Kristen Wiig, but there’s one accessory that just kept it from being a red-carpet winner. Can you guess which one? If you picked the giant dog collar necklace, then you are right. This large choker needs to go back to whatever S&M closet it escaped from.

Best: Rose Byrne
We know this isn’t a look everyone is going to go for, but just hear us out. If you want to rock a pantsuit, this is how it’s done. The sparkly Elie Saab outfit paired with Rose Byrne’s chic blunt cut makes for a fabulous 70s-inspired look reminiscent of Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface. Bravo, Rose!

Sarah Hyland may play a high school student in Modern Family, but she is actually in her 20s, which is why we loved this simple yet sexy dress. Her soft makeup and upswept hair allowed us to focus on the beautiful embellishments of her Temperley gown.

Shailene Woodley has looked beautiful in the past, which is why we were shocked to see her make this awful style choice. The clinging fabric hangs on all the wrong parts, and since her hair is pulled back in a low ponytail, there is no where else for our focus to go.

Best: Emma Stone
Emma Stone continued her red carpet style streak with this Alexander McQueen dress. The length and shape make the look fun and flirty, and her bright pink lipstick only adds to it.

Best: Octavia Spencer
Not only does Octavia Spencer keep winning, but she keeps working it on the red carpet. Her dress is so very age appropriate without being completely boring. The soft grey was a popular color at this awards show, and it looked great on her.

Worst: Emilia Clarke
We’re not sure what The Game of Thrones’ star was thinking when she showed up in this dress, but we’re definitely not fans. The black and white combo can look sleek and simple when executed correctly, but when it’s not, it comes off as a bad 80s prom dress.

Best: Naya Rivera
The Glee star really brought out the sexy with this Naeem Khan dress. It showed just enough skin without being too revealing, and the beaded detailing was absolute perfection.

Best: Ashlee Simpson
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Ashlee Simpson at a red carpet event, but she dazzled in a flapper-esque black dress. She even seemed demure covering her cleavage with sheer black tulle, while escorting her Boardwalk Empire actor boyfriend.

Worst: Jenna Ushkowitz
If style were a class at the Glee high school, then Jenna most certainly failed. Her dress hardly seems formal enough for a winter formal, nevermind a red carpet awards show.

Best: Viola Davis
Viola Davis looked like a Grecian goddess in Marchesa last night. Her gold jewelry and eyeshadow only helped accentuate the embroidery of her dress without being too matchy.

Worst: Jessica Chastain
Jessica Chastain is so beautiful and so talented, so why, oh why, can’t she find a proper stylist? Although she did slightly better at this awards show, she was certainly not Best Dressed material. The light blue dress was far too simple and didn’t do her figure any favors.

Worst: Ellie Kemper
There seems to be a trend of funny women ending up on Worst Dressed lists. This particular gown was so wrong. The style and fit had such a dated feel to it, and her teal eyeshadow was overkill.

Worst: Gretchen Mol
It seems the Boardwalk Empire actress was wearing a mix between a Greek toga and a kimono. Whatever the case, she is far too pretty to be seen in such an awful dress.

Worst: Jane Krakowski
Jane Krakowski’s dress looked like it couldn’t make up it’s mind. While the silhouette of the dress was nice, it took a weird turn at the gold Selena-like bustier.
