At Sunday evening’s Oscars ceremony, most of the awards did not surprise, but the fashion stood as an altogether different story. Several ladies brought their A game and set the bar higher than their Golden Globes ensembles. Naturally, the fashion was much more formal than the Grammys, but some stars managed to be adventurous while satisfying the super-fancy vibe of this red carpet. So, let’s judge away with impunity. It’s fun and entirely superficial. Here are the best and worst dresses from the Oscars.
Best – Rachel McAdams: This jade colored Getty Atelier gown was at once simple and sexy. Although the fabric didn’t hold up well against wrinkles in the midriff area, the thigh-high slit and dramatic train propped up this look.
Worst – Heidi Klum: With each awards show, Klum proves that successful models can harbor disastrous fashion taste. This lavender Marchesa gown holds no redeeming qualities. Too much fabric, too many contrasts, and too much Maypole madness.
