The Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party 2017 Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on March 02, 2017

Yes, darlings! It’s the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscars party! The party with the harsh lighting, loud clothes and sea of B-Listers vying for camera time! A Hollywood tradition! Such fun! So many sequins!


Okay, with that bit of forced cheeriness out of the way, let us proceed to the heart of the matter, which is judging people.



Adam Lambert

It’s alright. We don’t think he’s one for a vest and we’re starting to think shoes like that only work well with a tapered pant leg. They look a little goofy at the end of a wide one.



Aisha Tyler in Rochas

Fun. No complaints here.



Andrew Rannells

We like the blue shirt, but we’re just not sure we like it with a classic tuxedo.



Chris Colfer

Looks good.



Ciara in August Getty Atelier

Gotta hand it to her. She’s not always the most elegant gal in the room, but this is a really chic maternity look.



Colton Haynes in Emporio Armani




Freida Pinto in Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna

Enh. We don’t love the sash hanging down and it doesn’t really flatter her shape all that much.



Garcelle Beauvais

Pretty, if a little wallpaper-y. If we’d been asked ahead of time, we’d have said it felt a little off for an Oscars party like this one.



Jackie Cruz in Rami Kadi

Serving up some serious drag. It’s all a bit much but we love it.



Justin Hartley

Like most of his tribe (actors), he wears his suits a little small.



Kat Graham in Nicholas Oakwell Couture

Did anyone predict that fringe was going to be the big trend for Oscars weekend?

This is good, though. Her hair could’ve used a zhuzh.



Katharine McPhee in Amanda Wakeley

We’re all for an interesting black dress, but this looks random and overly tricky. And the choker bugs.



Laverne Cox in Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna

We’re finding it so difficult to continue to assess the same gowns over and over again. Nothing against Miss Laverne, but we’ve hit the wall on weird asymmetrical shoulder treatments, black sequins, and sheers.

It’s fine. Not great, but fine. Still loving the dark hair.



Lea Michele in Elie Saab

This is actually a pretty cute design. If the bodice was fully opaque, we’d call it our favorite dress at this event.



Michelle Dockery in Roland Mouret

The bust just looks like two panels resting on her breasts, which is not very fabulous. On the other hand, the head styling, sleekness and color scheme are all working for her.



Ruby Rose in Julien MacDonald

Whatever. We’re so damn over these tricky-ass gowns. This is just tacky.



Sharon Stone in Rubin Singer

If there weren’t sheer panels on this thing, we’d be applauding. It’s still a pretty great look, though.



Tyler Hoechlin

Love the slightly unusual color scheme.



Vanessa Hudgens in Kristian Aadnevik

YOW. Girl did not come here to play. This is so over-the-top tacky that we almost admire her for going there. If we look at it as lady drag instead of as fashion.
