86th Academy Awards Red Carpet

It seems like the big trend is to wear a wedding dress, a boring strapless gown, or a totally nondescript dress that looks nothing like the brand who made it.

I love…

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, charlize theron, dior

Charlize Theron in Dior. Even though this is quite a boring outfit, at least she looks good.


oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, anne hathaway, gucci

Anne Hathaway in Gucci. The metallic embroidery looks pretty good, her hair, on the other hand, does not.

Goldie Hawn in Versace. The “sleeves” on this dress look awesome.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, jennifer lawrence, dior

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior. Simple, almost boring, but looks good.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, julia roberts, givenchy

Julia Roberts in Givenchy. A nice lace number, and it’s a great shape.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, kate hudson, versace

Kate Hudson in Versace. More great sleeve action.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, lupita nyong'o, prada

Lupita Nyong’o in Prada. beautiful colour and a modern gown shape shape that looks great on her.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, naomi watts, calvin klein

Naomi Watts in Calvin Klein. It might be a wedding dress, but at least it is a fairly pretty one.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, olivia wilde, valentino

Olivia Wilde in Valentino. I like when pregnant women don’t decorate their bump and scream “I’m pregnant.” This is a classy dress.

Portia di Rossi in Naeem Khan. This lace-y fabric is beautiful.

I loathe…

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, angelina jolie

Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab. She looks dowdy, and frankly, a bit chubby, in this dress.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities,  cate blanchett, armani prive

Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé. I’m not a fan of the nude fabric decorated with bits of stuff look.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, jennifer garner, oscar de la renta

Jennifer Garner in Oscar de la Renta. The shape is great, but the colour is so boring and doesn’t even flatter her.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities,  jessica biel, chanel

Jessica Biel in Chanel Couture. Is the on the way to the Oscars or to her wedding?

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, kristin bell, roberto cavalli

Kristin Bell in Roberto Cavalli. Another wedding dress, but this one looks extra cheap.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, lady gaga, versace

Lady Gaga in Versace. I’m disappointed this is what she mustered up. Where the meat?

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, giambattista valli, penelope cruz

Penelope Cruz in Giambattista Valli. This is unflattering, and boring. I expect so much better from this brand.

oscars, red carpet, 2014, academy awards, evening wear, celebrities, sandra bullock, alexander mcqueen

Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen. While this dress isn’t so bad, it does raise the question about how much designers dillute their style and personality when designing red carpet gowns. THIS is Alexander McQueen? It simply does not make sense, because it is boring as hell.
