2017 Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on February 25, 2017

More pre-prom tailgate parties to assess, darlings. Put your judging pants on.

 

 

 

Brie Larson in Alexander McQueen

It’s … almost? Cute?

Naah. It’s weird. That skirt does nothing for her.

 

 

Freida Pinto in Maria Lucia Hohan

Awful. Terrible strap placement, bowl-like cups, and awkward cutouts, with proportions that pretty much wreck the natural lines of her body.

 

Gabrielle Unionin Rodarte

Loath as we are to admit this about a semi-sheer beaded black lace dress with a Rodarte label sewn inside, we like this. It would be much better with a lined skirt, but the ruffled bodice really works here.

 

 

Jaime King in Monse

This is cray, but she’s so good at working cray and so fully committed to creating a total look (those shoes are the perfect accompaniment to that dress), that we’re gonna give it to her. Lady knows how to create a red carpet moment and secure some spotlight time.

 

 

Jenny Slate in Jonathan Simkhai

Newp. The strip of skin is distracting and the hem looks like it got wet and stretched out of shape.

 

 

Michelle Dockery in Monse

Oh honey, please. You know damn well this is a ridiculous garment. Don’t let yourself get talked into these things.

 

 

Viggo Mortensen

The suit’s nice and he looks mostly good in it, but there’s simply no excuse for a best actor nominee on Oscar weekend hitting a red carpet in a pair of old, scuffed shoes. Even if no one was willing to send him a new pair (which seems unlikely), you can pick up a good new pair of basic black men’s loafers for 150 bucks and they’ll see you through the weekend and keep you picture-ready, Viggo.

Tsk.

 

 

Viola Davis in Max Mara

Great color, but the sash sits way too high and the pants are kind of crotchy.

 

 

Zoë Kravitz

Low-key flawless chic. That jacket is everything.
