The Definitive Guide to 2016 Oscar Gowns

Since I love awards shows and fashion, last night was the Super Bowl of gown season, I thought I’d weigh in on who wore what best. Because I do care who you’re wearing and I don’t want to hear you answer another inane question instead of hear about your dress. K? Thanks.

Best Dressed!

First Place:  Alicia Vikander in custom Louis Vuitton.

Fun, fresh silhouette and sweet color. Young and classic with a nod to trends. Missing from photo: other foot.

Second Place:  Margot Robbie in Tom Ford

Can either Margot or Tom Ford do wrong? Nope. I tried not to be too jealous when the Chap vigorously agreed as to her degree of hotness. I’m sure my Old Navy jogger sweat pants and v-neck tee were a close second in his mind.

Third Place:  Olivia Munn in Stella McCartney

Modern and fresh. She just had a baby. I’ll look the same way, right? Bigger earrings would have helped this ensemble. Otherwise, gorgeous.

Honorable mentions include my obsession with jewels! Mad Max’s necklace, Rachel’s earrings, and Tina’s choker.

Harry Winston. Insane. Not a fan with the dress – a little trying too hard. I’ll wear this against a tight black sweater any day of the week.

Now, I can’t stand Rachel McAdams, but the simple modern lines of her whole getup was right up my alley. Standing ovation for her Chopard earrings.

Finally, something more classic, a Bulgari, sapphire collier on Tina Fey. It was a hair too close to matching her purple Versace gown, but it was so beautiful. I was impressed by how easily panned in camera angles could capture its inticracy.

Worst Dressed!

Mindy is a delight, but everything about this is WRONG.

Gorgeous Cate Blanchett found a craft sale at Michael’s. A really good one.

Reese. Clearly, someone punched her in the breasts. Both of them. Hard. They deflated and the fabric swelled up in a fun crinkled bag shape. Oscar de la Renta is rolling in his fashionable grave.
