Oscars 2016 Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on March 01, 2016


Shall we WRAP THIS MUTHA UP, kittens? After all, we’ve still got a ton of after-party looks to work our way through. Time to line up the stragglers and do this quick n’ dirty style. Crack your knuckles, roll up your sleeves and let’s get down to some driveby opinionating.


Chrissy Teigen in Marchesa

She looks a little bit like a Christmas ornament, but there’s no denying she’s got some fabulous preg-style. We’ve seen a lot of dresses that are vaguely in this style and we haven’t liked most of them, but the reds really make this stand out.


Patricia Arquette in Marina Rinaldi

The color is gorgeous. We don’t normally like boob bows, but this one works.


Lily Cole in Vivienne Westwood

Chewing gum wrapper.


Margot Robbie in Tom Ford

We wouldn’t have put this dress (which is fabulous) on a blue-eyed blonde and we wouldn’t have advised her to wear her hair down.


Whoopi Goldberg in Dames of New York

She said it was inspired by Bette Davis’ famous All About Eve dress, but all we could focus on what how deeply uncomfortable she looked in it; like she could barely move. It’s a marvel of tailoring and construction and not necessarily a bad dress on its own (although it looks more Barbara Bush than Bette Davis to us) but it doesn’t strike us as her style at all.


Jennifer Jason Leigh in Marchesa

This is a bit disappointingly conventional for her and we don’t think the color does much for her, but it’s a pretty enough dress and she looks happy and comfortable in it. We don’t love it, but we can’t hate.


Naomi Watts in Armani Privé

GORGEOUS. Fabulous colors and sparkle. She looks like a movie star and she managed to stand out even in this crowd. That necklace is stunning. The only weak part is the clutch, which looks kind of generic.


Sophie Turner in Galvan
10-Oscars-2016-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-Sophie Turner

The color is pretty for her, but the dress is a big ol’ nothing.


Charlotte Rampling in Armani Privé

A beautiful fabric, tastefully tailored for her. We don’t love the patches on the bust and we think a slightly darker shoe would’ve been a better idea, but it’s a unique look that really suits her.


Isla Fisher in Marchesa
12-Oscars-2016-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-Isla Fisher

Blandly pretty.


Amy Poehler in Andrew Gn

LOVE. There’s been a ton of embroidery on the red carpet throughout awards season and we’ve gotten somewhat tired of seeing it, but we really love the high sense of drama she’s bringing. It’s a different look for her and we think it really works.
