Welcome to part 2 of my Bitchy Oscar Fashion Post!
Today I will discuss dresses that were just BAD. We’re talking unflattering silhouettes, weird color choices, the lot.
There are a couple of offenders here who really went above and beyond, and for whatever reason, even made “best dressed” lists because apparently some fashion editors are blind.
That CUT. AUGH.
Apparently, having an inexplicably sheer long bit of the rest of the skirt is “in” right now, but let’s all face facts, it looks ridiculous. It particularly looks ridiculous when it comes in that insanely tight right before it flows out. The ruching is also tragic, and that swoop of fabric going up into the one, floppy shoulder? I’m just confused by the whole thing.
Now, she’s been put on a few best lists, which I think is 100% because apparently the silk for her dress is from something really intense, like “cruelty-free silkworms.” If that’s true, brilliant, but maybe don’t be cruel to the product by making it into that seafoam monstrosity.
The dress looks like a garbage bag in every way.
I should mention that I hate taffeta. But this color grey? That level of wrinkling? See the caption. The cut is also appalling, and if I weren’t horrified by the color, I’d just be bored.
The color is SO LOUD.
The cut isn’t great, and the wide shoulder just looks weird cutting across her boob. Also, the hairdo looks CRAZY. Go back to the 80s, and this would be fantastic. Now? Just wack.
There were a few others I didn’t necessarily care for, but overall, I thought the red carpet was fairly strong. Already looking forward to next year on that front.
