Last night was one of the biggest and most eventful nights in Hollywood Oscars’s history. Viola Davis won her Oscar being the first black woman to win an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony award for acting. Mahershala Ali won best supporting actor being the first muslim to win this award, La La Land won best picture. Oh, sorry, no, scratch that. It was Moonlight. That’s how it went down. Oh… and the red carpet seemed poor in ‘wow’s’ and stunning best dressed.
I decided to not sugar coat anything. I’m already having major sweets craving, I don’t need such temptation in my life. So I will be direct and subjectively honest when it comes to 2017 Oscars red carpet. It was one of the worst red carpets. Yes, there were obviously best dressed actresses and those who were looked beyond amazing and stunning and my heart literally skipped a beat, but there were too few.
I also felt like everyone was waiting for this carpet to make a fashion statement be it edgy or classic and most didn’t. They actually blew it. It’s like they stayed for so long in anticipation mode that they eventually got bored and didn’t bother too much.
Best dressed – Oscars 2017 Red Carpet
Viola Davis looked beyond perfect. The dress was a simple gorgeous mermaid in the best colour ever. Red looks insane on her and she pulled it off like a winner! I loved the entire look, form dress to hair and makeup. She looked beautiful. Emma Stone in Givenchy was the perfect image of how to wear gold’ish tones. I LOVED the contrast of the dress with her darker red hair and bold makeup up. So fashion and old Hollywood. Continuing the golden love was Jessica Biel who pulled off a very risky look if you ask me. She looked amazing, but the dress as gorgeous it is, has a bit of that army/ripped fabric effect. Even a bit of Flintstones fashion vibe. Nevertheless I loved it. I’m loving long sleeves on red carpet dresses more and more. It also had this 70s glam vibe to it.
Olivia Culpo – OH MY GOD! Stunning. Perfection. Beautiful. It’s simple, dramatic, very sexy in such a classic 20s roaring dazzling way it’s irresistible. I love the black belt and the contrasting dark nails. Love her hair and makeup. Ah…. I am in love with this look.
Ruth Negga. Are you kidding me? SLAY! This is beyond perfect and I think she took a massive risk here to go for a full on dramatic look, so powerful, and visually so strong for the Oscars, when everyone plays it safe, that it’s insane she did that, and pulled it off 100000%. LOVED the dress, the boho-romatic-dramatic-high-fashion style, loved the hair, the makeup. Beautiful.
Sofia Carson was wow. Simplicity and classic to the core and done with supreme perfection. I love how she was not afraid to keep it minimal and simple. That red lip was the only extravagance she went for and it payed off big time. Gorgeous.
Isabelle Huppert looked so elegant, beautiful and effortless. I love that she went for a very glamorous but relaxed dress, in which she looked comfortable. She killed it.
Okay, Darby Stanchfield looked amazing, but what the hell is up with the cape dress. My friend and fellow blogger Vanessa, over at Budding Fashionista blog said so well: ”the white cape dress. Is Hollywood not over it yet?”. Apparently not, but I’m over it. I love everything about this look, from the dress, to the colour, the cut, the upper part, the flowy rich bottom, the earrings, the hair, I even love the damn cape, but WE ARE OVER IT. Karlie Kloss, really?! Yes it’s all nice and rainbows and butterflies, but I don’t get the cape. I never really loved it, it always felt it was a bit shoved down my throat, but I took it cause it was different, classic, high fashion whatever… Now I’m done.
Emma Roberts looked very pretty, but what I didn’t really like was that dirty yellow’ish white part of the dress. It was a good look, a very classic with an edge style and she pulled it off.
Taraji P. Henson. STOP. Bow down bitches. I love love love love love this dress, and how she was feeling it too. Massive style crush and hotness. Love that she kept it sexy and simple, with just a statement necklace and high slit. It’s the classic red carpet sexy dress that we haven’t seen in such a long time, and I’m so glad she did this look.
Giniffer Goodwin had another version of Ruth Nega’s dress. Different style, same dress sort of. Major faux pas. But she looked good. Ava DuVernay stunning!!!! Again the long sleeves rule. Perfection.
Kirsten Dunst was oh. my. god. Too beautiful. She owned this dramatic very glam style. Chrissy Teigen… cape. And she’s like so in our face lately. Literally speaking. She always looks good. That’s all imma say about it.
Nicole Kidman… Can we all take a moment and say a big thank you and a standing ovation. She finally nailed it. My God, it took only like a 1,567,046,944 red carpets worst dressed lists but she did it. It’s all in the simple choices.
Priyanka Chopra she’s so stunning this woman can wear anything. I don’t know how this dress looks from the side, but from the front I love it.
Brie Larson looks sooooo pretty and refined. She looks like a designer’s stunning sketch. It’s glamorous, elegant, classic, beautiful. Love the hair and makeup too.
Naomie Harris looked sleeked and elegant and beautiful but I still think it was not very Oscar’ish. What the hell do I know?
Worst dressed – 2017 Oscars Red Carpet
[[[[ I am so curious to watch E! red carpet show and Fashion Police and find out what the hell is up with Giuliana Rancic’s dress. I am devastated. I don’t get it: the design is – what the hell is it? the fabric looks like shit, and the colour is great but not on her. Bad photo?! ]]]]] ;’*you guys…. this was my first thought. I have just caught a glimpse of her on E! red carpet talking about the dress and I love it. It was a bad photo. #happyagain
I know everyone was so excited over Zuri Hall‘s dress. I just think they’re all insane. That long waist is horrible, and while the dress is pretty colour wise and those appliqués are amazing, and the colour is fantastic on her, and her hair and makeup are great – that design looks off on her (and on anyone else for that matter), a bit ill fitted, and not right, I don’t care how high fashion it was supposed to be.
Stacy London. Are you fucking kidding me? I have no words. The hair is great, the earrings are amazing, the colour of the dress is perfect for her… but all of them together, for the Oscars… did she lose a bet or something? And what in the name of the Lord is up with those shoes. Is this like a social experiment?
Blanca Blanco… …. …. you guys am I crazy or is this dress a bit great and hideous at the same time? I adore the sandals and the dress is major high fashion, that slit is perfect, but something makes me hate it. Maybe the overly puffy shoulders or that red belt…
Felicity Jones and Raphaela Neihausen… girls, we know Alicia Vickander wore that yellow dress at the Oscars last year or so, but that doesn’t mean it’s a ticket to winning best dressed. Hence your situation this year. I don’t like the dresses. Simple as that. I’m not a big fan of tea-lenght and certainly not at the Oscars. They’re not ugly of course… but I’m not feeling them.
Teresa Palmer – long waist, belt? What?! It’s like stylists and designers have agreed to make some people at the Oscars look not so flattering. She’s stunning either way… but that dress is not.
Leslie Mann shut down the internet with her dress, and everyone in fashion was in awe of how amazing she looked. I was un-impressed. It was wrinkled, and she looked like she ran off from a fashion shoot before they finished up her look.
Janelle Monae did exactly the opposite – she stayed with the glam team and the designers way too long, until they added all they could and then some on her dress and her look altogether. She looked too done, overly embellished, busy, too much.
Okay, can we all please talk about Dakota Johnson‘s dress, but without the pretentious fashion bullshit? Again the world’s sartorials died and said she killed it. She killed us, that’s what she did. Did you guys like it? I thought it looked hideous. I mean… yeah very cool and edgy and editorial FOR AN EDITORIAL. But it was wrinkled, it was sad, it was willowy, it was crying on her for God’s sakes. No?! Am I alone here?
Michelle Williams… she’s a very pretty girl but her style is so not my style, and I can’t for the love of me like it. Where’s the makeup, and the glam? It’s the Oscars for the love of God. I know she is wearing makeup, and jewellery, and she looks simple and pretty but something about this look I’m not feeling.
Alicia Vickander came out of the shower put on some dress (again the long waist), some diamond necklace and showed up. Btw… you forgot your makeup and you left your hair in your bun.
Scarlett Johansson was a no no. What the hell did she wear, last Tuesday’s vomit? She’s in this rockroll edgy phase I think. I don’t like it. Salma Hayek just wore her glam nightgown and didn’t bother too much. Ah well… we were all in pyjamas too at that point, why bother.
Charlize Theron and Halle Berry. Why? Maybe it’s just me but I thought they looked kinda meh. Bored. Not wow. Charlize Theron’s dress was too much fabric, and wrong hair, and colour of the dress. Bad styling. And Halle’s was great, but I think the hair ruined it. There I said it. You can now judge me and hate me.
