I don’t know about you, but I found this year’s Oscars red carpet painfully boring. I had a few favourites, but judging from some of their Twitter coverage, I’m in the minority. Take this ruffled Valentino gown on Kristen Wiig, for example…I ADORE IT. It’s so unexpected, so fresh, and so stunning (gimme!!!). Lots of people are comparing it to lasagna noodles…and all I have to say about that is…if this is lasagna noodles, Kristen is SERVING IT!
On the less polarizing side of the spectrum, I actually enjoyed Brie Larson’s very un-Celine Celine (?). Are we sure it’s Celine, you guys? Either way, she looks beautiful but not in a precious way. Then there’s Lucy Boynton in CHANEL, actually looking quite precious, but she’s totally pulling it off. The Peter Pan collar, the bows…all of it! And those hair accessories and makeup?! Perfection!
Maya Rudolph’s sequined caftan is my dream red carpet dress…loose enough that you don’t have to diet, and still well-cut enough to drape nicely without looking shlumpy. Always a winner in my books.
Last, but not least, queen of meme-able Oscars reactions Billie Eilish wore a very Billie Eilish CHANEL outfit, which isn’t something I’d wear, but it’s so her, and so cool, I can’t help but stan. I’ll take her loose tweed suit over a forgettable gown any day.
So who was your fave this year? Tweet or DM me on Twitter on Instagram and let me know.
