Oscars 2017: Best and Worst Dressed

By  |  0 Comments

There were quite a few trends on last night’s Oscars red carpet including boys in blue, old Hollywood glam and and emphasis on hair styling. Which stars got it right and which should have a long talk with their stylists? Check out my thoughts below:

 

Oscars 2017 Terrene Howard

I always appreciate when a man steps outside of the traditional black tux for his red carpet appearance, but Terrence Howard took a step in the wrong direction. He looks like a lusty Grandpa who likens himself to Hugh Hefner and doesn’t take off his house robe for NOBODY. Using a robe as inspiration was a nice idea in theory, but if he wanted to pull this off he needed a bit more tailoring.

 

Oscars 2017 Emma Roberts

Emma Roberts is serving old Hollywood glam in vintage Armani Prive and this is a GREAT look for her! She was there to promote  the “sustainable style” movement and if this is what it’s about I’m on board. Everything from her waves to classic red lip  and drop earrings are a great complement to this classic gown!

 

Oscars 2017 Scarlett Johannsen

What was Scarlett Johansson thinking? This gown makes her look bloated, and I don’t know if we are supposed to see the lining underneath but I don’t like the way it looks. It seems she may have been trying to contrast the femininity of this gown with the edgy hair but it wasn’t a great mashup.

 

Oscars 2017 Riz Ahmed

Riz Ahmed is effortlessly fine! I like the tailored dark blue suit and the bowtie is a nice touch!

 

Oscars 2017 Halle Berry

Halle Berry looks decent in her Atelier Versace gown and Forevermark diamonds, but she ruined her look with that WIG!  Its flattened in awkward areas, making it look like she put it on then fell asleep and didn’t properly get herself together before hitting the red carpet.

 

Oscars 2017 Taraji P Henson

After her Grammys red carpet mishap, Taraji P. Henson came to redeem herself in Alberta Ferretti! Like Emma Roberts, she  channeled old Hollywood glamour and while her gown compliments her body well the real star of this look is that necklace and decolletage combination!

 

Oscars 2017 Leslie Mann

Leslie Mann looks like a bridesmaid in the Southern wedding of a woman that hates her guts. The color is too bright, there’s too much volume and what is with the awkwardly placed tie at her chest? It doesn’t help that the dress could stand a steamer and her hair styling looks a bit lazy.

 

Oscars 2017 Janelle Monae

I’ve discussed Janelle Monae’s movie star style before, and this Elie Saab gown is right on brand with what she’s been delivering this award season. There’s an art to mixing a classic combo with embellished details and no one does it quite like Janelle can. Janelle is easily best dressed of the night!
