Oscars 2014: Viola Davis in Escada

Posted on March 03, 2014

Oh, Miss Viola. No, hon. It pains us to say it, but … no.

 

 

Viola Davis attends the 86th Oscars held at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California in an Escada dress paired with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

First, the kindness: LOVING the 1930s hairstyle on her and this green is a stunning shade for her.

And now, the unkindness: That bodice is WAAAAAY too tricky for any mere mortal to wear. And considering the model’s not really pulling it off all that well, we’re inclined to think no one can really make that over-seamed satiny thing look good. Love the skirt, but it all goes wonky from the hips up – and it’s so distracting that it overwhelms everything else about the look.

Seriously, who wants a bunch of extra fabric twisted right around their stomach? How is THAT a good idea for anyone?
