And now, the end is near and so we face the final pile of rejects, darlings. Which isn’t to say these outfits were terrible, just that they couldn’t break through that impenetrable wall of Oscars coverage, bless their hearts.
You can read parts one and two of this week’s mega-long list of leftovers, and then when you’re done with them, you can come back here and help us clean off this plate.
For those who are up to speed, let’s tuck in.
Angela Bassett in Missoni
We are on the record many times with a stated dislike of fringe, but she’s working the hell out of this. And the colors look great.
We tend to think sweaters on the red carpet need to have some sort of oomph or photogenic quality to them. This is fine from a professional perspective, not so great from a promotional one. And the witch shoes don’t look right.
Emily Ratajkowski in Brock Collection
Forget the hideous color, why would you agree to have that done to your midsection?
Garrett Hedlund in Strong Suit
It’s amazing. Put him in formal wear and he’s Clark Gable. Put him in anything else and it just looks flat. He has a great formal game but terrible semi-formal and casual ones.
Issa Rae and Chelsea Handler
They both look fine, but Issa’s look is especially adorable.
Keira Nightley in Chanel
That is a rug with sleeves, dear.
Generic but well presented.
She looks great.
Noomi Rapace in Givenchy
She also looks kind of great, although the cuffs on that jacket are dumb and we’re not sure the ’80s pumps really finish the look off well.
Paris Jackson in Valentino
Entering her Goth phase, we see. Can’t say it doesn’t suit her.
Penélope Cruz in Versace
A bit old-school, but still beautiful.
Robert Pattinson in Dior Homme
It’s all high-quality, but a look this plain requires perfect finishing. He looks sloppy.
Oof. Sweetie, we want to, but … we just can’t.
Zoe Kazan in Miu Miu
A cute dress, but those shoes look silly with it.
