“Room” actress Brie Larson attends the 88th Annual Academy Awards at The Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.
You SHUT IT DOWN, girl.
We had our doubts that she could pull it off on the style front tonight, but this is just about the best possible scenario we could have hoped for. She has a preference for wearing fairly quirky, occasionally edgy, but always off-the-beaten-path looks. This is toned-down enough for the night – because let’s face it; unless you’re Cher, the Oscars red carpet isn’t always the best place for crazy fashion shit – but it’s got all these great and unexpected details. We’re in love with the pleated ruffles on the skirt and that insane detail around the waist. We love the color on her too. We’re not crazy about the sheer parts of the bust. And we don’t love her hair from the front, but we can admit it’s pretty in the back. This isn’t flawlessly styled, but then again, it’s such a declarative and focus-pulling dress that it doesn’t really need to be. To us, it was easily one of the most memorable looks of the night and one of those Oscar-winner dresses that will be remembered a decade or two from now.
Oh, and it’s the best Gucci we’ve seen in a long time.
