After covering the best of Oscars 2014, it is only fair to cover the underwhelming and worst dressed. There weren’t any crazy out of the world dresses, just plain boring.
FROM THE BORING TO PLAIN BAD
One of the discoveries for this year, Wolf of Wall Street Margot Robbie disappointed in this goth like black gown by Saint Laurant with diamonds necklace and earrings to match her now darker hair (she used to be blonde). The make up was overdone, the hair is too dark- she needs to fire her stylist and hair and make-up team ASAP!
Julia Roberts’ return to red carpet season hasn’t been great- with the shirt gown and the pantsuit. For Oscars, the newly blonde Julia wore a black sleeveless lace gown by Givenchy. The dress was fine, but the camisole like inset makes it plain weird.
Another weird black number was the one Anne Hathaway wore- designed by Gucci, it has this metallic detail. Moreover the gown wasn’t right for Oscars- probably more fit for something more casual. Not a fan!
Third black dress that was underwhelming was Anna Kendrick’s edgy black with mesh details and a thigh high slit on J Mendel. Anna took a risk and tried something different, but it has far too much going on and wasn’t appropriate for Oscars. Fail!
One of my favorites Jennifer Garner wore a silver beaded Oscar de la Renta gown with tiered detail. I don’t hate this look, I just have seen it too many times on the red carpet to get excited by it. Better luck next year!
Another red carpet favorite that disappointed by choosing a relatively boring dress was Angelina Jolie. Angelina wore a metallic Elie Saab gown- the gown is great, but there have been many similar ones on the red carpet before.
Viola Davis wore a green Escada gown- I love the color, but I am not a fan of the fabric or the fitting. I love Viola Davis, but this dress just doesn’t work for me, sorry!
