Academy Awards 2019 Best and Worst Dressed

I’ve been the worst lately and am just ignoring the blog, but let’s get back into it. What better night than Oscar night? There are some clear trends this year for the ladies: pants suits, tulle, ruffles, and metallic silver. Some ladies pulled them off a little better than others. I also love that men are getting a little more bold with all the brocade blazers out there. As always, the images are from People.

Here are my best and worst from the evening:

Best:

I can’t tell if this is white or silver, but Amy Adams really knows her look. I saw her do an interview about her style recently and she said she’s really honed in on the silhouettes and colors that work for her, and doesn’t experiment too much anymore. I agree, she knows what works.

Regina King makes this simple dress look modern and classic at the same time. White dresses were popular this year, and I think she did it really well.

I love love love that Helen Mirren wore a great color. Everyone else her age is in black and white, and here she is riding the trends, but keeping it comfortable. She could not have picked anything better.

The prize for best personification of an emoji goes to Jennifer Hudson for salsa girl. She looks like a million bucks, and I love a statement architectural ruffle like this. Again, classic but so modern.

Worst:

Emma Stone looks like she’s wearing a dinosaur mascot costume. Maybe this is too high fashion for me but I don’t like the color, the pattern, or the shoulder. Ugh.

What are we doing Sarah Paulson? This does not look flattering, comfortable, or interesting. A little too much.

I love the shoulder detail on Angela Bassett, but I think the dress is just too tight. I don’t like how there are so many creases and the leg slit look like it’s about to bust. Good effort, needs better execution.

So many women wore pants suits this year. I don’t understand the disappearing feet look here with Awkwafina. Many women wore their pant hems to the floor, and it looks weird to me. I also just don’t think this was a great look for Awkwafina- too much and weird proportions.

Henry Golding just looks too much like Mr. Peanut. A little too classic…

Best Couples:

No words.

Matching for prom night- I’m dead.

Who were your faves?

Golden Globes Best and Worst

Awards season 2015: here we go!

First of all, I have not seen too many movies this year for whatever reason, but I did see The Imitation Game on Christmas day and it is the best. I think it should win every award from now on! I am a full fledged Cumberbitch now!

Now lets talk about clothes. There was a lot of white on the red carpet, and a lot of rather simple dresses. Lots of glamorous mermaid and column silhouettes rather than more fashion forward unique choices. It seemed relatively understated overall, but very elegant. A lot of pretty and sexy dresses, but not many statement fashion pieces. A good steady start to Awards season.

I borrowed all of the images from People.com.

My Best:

Amy Adams

Amy Adams: At first I thought this was a little boring, but frankly it’s quite impeccable. Usually she chooses a bolder color, so I was surprised she went for a pastel blue. The draping and the fit couldn’t be better. If it wasn’t perfect I think it would fall in the realm of bridesmaid dress, but Amy did it right!

Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain: She always cracks me up because she seems like such a sweet, understated person during the red carpet interviews, but she really serves up the drama with her dress every single time. Not a groundbreaking silhouette but it’s definitely working for her and I love a metallic!

Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick: Anna is a Kate Spade spokesperson, and this gown seems very Kate Spade-ish to me so it makes sense. I like that it’s classic but has some interest with the beading. It works very well for her.

Reese

Reese Witherspoon: This is very plain but I think it’s just done very well. There were several stars that did similar looks, but the metallic kicks it up a notch. I don’t know that Reese is usually this sparkly so I was happy to see her amp it up a little. (The one thing that would have pushed it up one more notch would be some big sapphire statement pieces to add some interest)

My Worst:

Rosamund Pike

Rosamund Pike: The concept of the dress is not terrible. I find it ill-fitting and very unflattering on her. It seems like the straps are two inches too long.

Amanda Peet

Amanda Peet: She usually leans towards a retro look (somewhere from 1920’s-1940’s), so this dress does not surprise me for her. I wish it was a little less blah. If the waist was defined with a wide band and it bloused out a little above the natural waist, it might be a little more flattering. With a little nip and a tuck it would be so much better, it’s just too much blousey material.

Taylor Schilling

Taylor Schilling: The dress is not a bad dress, but the whole look seems way too severe and she does not look her best. I think it’s the middle part, strong eye brows, and red lips. It’s a little much.

George Clooney, Amal Clooney

Amal Clooney: Could this be more of a snooze? I think she was trying to be subtle so she wouldn’t steal George’s thunder, but I was very disappointed.

The SAG Awards’ Best and Worst

Here we go with the second awards show of the season. I thought there were some higher highs and some lower lows from a fashion perspective as compared to the Golden Globes last week. The name of the game was simple and perfectly tailored. It’s the busier, blousier dresses where people seemed to get into trouble. (photos from People.com again)

The Best:

Amy Adams: This blue is spot on for her red hair and fair complexion. Though her Golden Globes look got praise, I think this was an improvement.

Amy Adams

Jennifer Garner: Super simple, nothing new, but dare I say perfect? It’s hard to look better than this.

Jennifer Garner

Cara Theobold: I don’t know who this is, but she can pick a dress. I like how this is nothing outrageous, but it’s not the average sleeve, or print placement. Classic but interesting.

Cara Theobold

Elisabeth Moss: It’s got to be difficult picking several perfect dresses to wear throughout awards season. Elisabeth is definitely off to a great start this season. Plus she got the orange-red memo like many others this year as well.

Elisabeth Moss

The Worst:

Claire Danes: This one has a lot of different textures going on and a weird cut, plus her makeup looks a little scary to me. Not my favorite from Ms. Danes.

Claire Danes

Edie Falco: Can you say unflattering? Between the silhouette and the bohemian print, I don’t really understand why she made this choice.

Edie Falco

Amanda Peet: Is she serious? In what world is this flattering, pretty, or glamorous? Amanda needs a refresher course on red carpet fashion.

Amanda Peet

Meryl Streep: I didn’t want to have to do this, because it’s Meryl. I wasn’t going to, but she was mediocre at the Golden Globes as well. She’s just not trying anymore. I get it, it’s not her thing to find a fabulous gown, but we can do better than this Meryl.
