It sure didn’t FEEL like the Oscars, did it? Not much of a red carpet as very few people actually went beyond the nominees and a few presenters – so there isn’t a whole lot to review (also see my Stories today to hear why I can’t do the standard Red Carpet Review on here anymore).
Basically, I didn’t love anyone (see roundup here). Amanda Seyfried looked best of anyone. I was not a huge fan of all the midriff cutouts on Carrie Mulligan, Vanessa Kirby, Zendaya, Andra Day, etc. Regina King’s wings were a bit too costume-y for me. Reese’s dress was a really pretty color combo but not a great cut. Halle Berry’s bow was MASSIVE (very Devil Wears Prada) and I wasn’t a fan of the hair either. Looked a little Ramona Quimby Age 8.
So instead I’m going to post the dresses I wish people had worn! :)
Christian Dior for Maria Bakalova
Carolina Herrera for Vanessa Kirby
A little Ellie Saab leopard for Zendaya
Naeem Khan for Glen Close
Badgley Mischka for Laura Dern
