All year long there are various awards shows that touch different interests such as music, social media, movies, and much more. Not everyone is interested in these shows, but even so they still try to catch an award show or two throughout the year because they are interested in the fashion. Although that may not be what the show is even about, humans are very visual and are attracted to what their favorite celebrities are wearing. People like to gossip about what a certain star was wearing or how she (and let’s face it guys, no one is really that interested in what the men are wearing, because they all basically dress themselves in the same thing) looked in it. The Oscars is one of the most popular awards shows of the year and is definitely a night to show off your best looks. Some celebrities hit the mark and look absolutely glamorous, but others aren’t able to make the cut and make us ask ourselves, “What was she thinking when she chose that of all things to wear on one of the biggest nights of the year?”

Lots of people love Jennifer Lawrence, she’s kind of been Hollywood’s it girl ever since she came out in The Hunger Games. With this much popularity, people always look out for her during awards shows, so you’d think she’d wear a really nice, flattering dress. Well, she didn’t. The top is great and there are really no problems with that, but then your eyes travel down to see the rest of the dress and you see she’s wearing a huge feather duster.

Charlize Theron, who starred in Mad Max: Fury Road, which won six awards that night, looked very nice in her simple red dress. Although it was very plain, she is a gorgeous woman and has grace which make the look elegant.

Rachel McAdams, who starred in Spotlight, which won the award for Best Picture, did not have a spectacular dress. I thought the color was very dull and did not flatter her body. It wasn’t necessarily a bad dress, it probably just needed adjustments and a change of color. Along with her, Emily Blunt also wore a dress that wasn’t bad, but was still unflattering on her. I did like the tiny purse she paired with it; however, because it matched the pop of sparkle on her dress.

Kate Winslet, one of the award presenters that night, was definitely not one of the best dressed, in fact the dress is really simple when you think of what kind of event this is, but the material it was made out gave the dress more of a fun feeling and added to its movement.

Lady Gaga, who performed at the event, wore a pantsuit and I don’t know how I feel about it. Sometimes it looked nice and sometimes it just looked like typical, crazy Lady Gaga clothing. Right now I’m leaning more towards the pantsuit being nice, because it isn’t a dress like most people are used to seeing, but I can’t say it made her one of the best-dressed of the night.

Reese Witherspoon’s dress looked like the common ball gown, but my only complaint would have to be towards the top of the dress. I’m not really sure why it’s bunched up and I don’t understand why there is black stuff underneath, but it definitely doesn’t make the dress look “unique.”

Charlotte Riley went with her husband Tom Hardy, who was in the movie The Revenant, and she looked absolutely stunning. I’d never heard of her before, so I didn’t really notice her, but upon seeing her dress I knew she was one of the best-dressed of the night. It compliments her very well and looked like it was made just for her. I love Amy Poehler, but the dress she wore was hideous. I would have to describe it as looking like the dress of a mom who is trying to relive her hippie days, finds a tablecloth, wraps it around herself, and thinks of it as couture. Let that sink in for a second and try to tell me that doesn’t sound horrible. Kerry Washington’s dress would be better if it were two separate dresses. The toughness of the top and the softness of the bottom don’t go well together even though it was probably supposed to demonstrate a contrast in fabric, color, and feeling. Julianne Moore was one of the better dressed people of the evening with an elegant, black dress that wasn’t too much and wasn’t too little. It was the perfect size and shape for her which made the look work very well.

Tina Fey wore a very simple dress, but it flattered her very nicely and the deep purple color complimented her nicely. I’d also like to note that the necklace she paired with this dress accented the dress giving it and her more beauty.

Cate Blanchett, who starred in the nominated movie Carol, had on a dress that looked so delicate and soft. Her dress was ethereal and seemed like a dress that could only come out of a dream. She was by far the best-dressed of the night.

Rooney Mara, who also starred in Carol had on a very delicate looking dress, but I would not say she was one of the best-dressed of the night. She looked fairly average and didn’t pop out.

Margot Robbie did not dress bad or good; she dressed in gold making her look like one of the Oscars, which in retrospect is a great idea. Dress like an Oscar at the Oscars. Seems like a goal someone would have on their bucket list.

One of the more convoluted dresses of the night was worn by Jennifer Garner. Her dress seemed to have too much going on. There was three different shades of black, a long train, a slit covered by the train so that makes no sense, a belt, and a one-sided sleeve. Detail is good, but sometimes it’s better to go simple.

Brie Larson, who won Best Actress for her role in the movie Room, wore an exquisite dress in royal blue. The dress makes her look as if she were a princess of the ocean and the belt in the center gives it a finishing touch. I have to say, I thought Cate Blanchett dressed the best, but it seems like this dress is at the same level of beauty as Blanchett’s.

Naomi Watts had a sparkly dress and accented it with a nice necklace. I thought the purple and blue color scheme looked very nice and the way the dress was made looked lovely on her.

Olivia Wilde’s dress reminded me of ancient Greece or Rome, but I didn’t think it was a nice dress. She wasn’t one of the worst dressed, but the dress didn’t do her much justice.

Heidi Klum is probably one of the worst-dressed of the night. She looked like she had been submerged in layers of purple fabric. As someone who critiques fashion as a judge on the show Project Runway, you would think she would wear better outfits, but time and time again she has shown us she doesn’t have much fashion sense herself.

Alicia Vikander, who won the award for supporting actress in the movie The Danish Girl, wore a yellow dress to the Oscars. I have mixed feelings about this dress. I’m not too fond of the way the dress is at the bottom, but I really like its simplicity and surprisingly, even though it’s one of the colors I hate, I love the yellow. Not many people wore yellow dresses to the Oscars, in fact, she’s the only one who I can remember wore a yellow dress, so it was cool to see a change in color scheme.

Priyanka Chopra’s dress looked marvelous. It was simple yet stunning, it flattered her very well, and she is already very pretty so it only made her look better.

I hate Daisy Ridley’s dress. Not only was it a dull color, but because it was so dull it washed her out completely even with the sparkle it had. That’s not what made it a bad dress though, the thing in the middle is what made it bad. Instead of giving the dress an interesting shape, this division causes it to make her look awkward and caused her to be one of the worst-dressed of the night.

For best-dressed of the night I would have to nominate: Cate Blanchett, Brie Larson, Charlotte Ridley, and Priyanka Chopra.

For worst-dressed of the night I would have to nominate: Amy Poehler, Jennifer Garner, Heidi Klum, and Daisy Ridley.

Which stars had your favorite looks and which had your least favorite? Did they get nominated? Last night had great looks and terrible looks. Hopefully, the upcoming awards ceremonies and next year’s Oscars has more fabulous looks in store for us.

    Saoirse Ronan’s look was my fav. The dress color, the sequence, the HAIR, the jewelry–it was all perfection.

    Couldn’t agree more. Saoirse Ronan was one of the best dressed of the night and the green sequins of her dress complemented her eyes perfectly. I feel as if Charlotte Riley’s gorgeous black gown was not described enough, just simply stated that it was lovely; she was stunning in it. And she isn’t just an accessory to her talented husband Tom Hardy but also a great actress in her own right, so that might have been touched on for a second. Other than that, nice job!
