2019 Oscar Nominees Luncheon Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on February 06, 2019

Do you smell that, darlings? That’s the smell of success wafting in from this red carpet. These folks are here to take a victory lap and schmooze with their peers. We highlighted a few of the more notable looks already, but for many folks, the fashion was low-key and professional, as is the way of such events. Let’s judge.



Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta

Hmm. About what we’d expect from a non-showy star at a non-showy event. We love the earrings.



Bradley Cooper

This is fine. He looks sad. He recently admitted that he felt embarrassment over not being nominated for Best Director and we have to admit, we found that kind of honesty to be pretty refreshing. Not that it has anything to do with his outfit, of course.



Laura Dern in Proenza Schouler

Love the shape, hate the Dalek buttons, hate the keyhole, love the color, hate the shoes. There. Fully assessed.



Mahershala Ali

A beautifully fitted suit in a color that looks amazing on him. Personally, we’re not feeling the matching tie but it’s the trend of the moment. And it does tend to take a suit away from businesswear.



Melissa McCarthy in Jonathan Simkhai

Fabulous silhouette and fit, with some cute details, like the flared cuffs, which is not a thing we normally like. The shoes are kind of awful, though. Maybe they wouldn’t be so distracting if the color was a little more subtle, but they’re also over-sized and we don’t love the shape of them.



Rachel Weisz in Marc Jacobs

We’re kind of tired of these sorts of super-prim looks, but we have to admit this is kind of pretty in a ’30s screen goddess kind of way.



Rami Malek

Continuing his “remain inconspicuous and humble” poledance style. He’s the anti-Redmayne. We miss when he was more adventurous in his style.



Richard E. Grant

The shirt’s fun. We’re far too charmed by him to linger on the drabness of the suit.



Viggo Mortensen

It’s okay. He’s a lot less interesting than he used to be, we’re afraid.




Yalitza Aparicio in Prada

Hate the shoes, LOVE the dress.

Seriously, those shoes look like restraints.
