Oscars 2019 Countdown: Rachel Weisz-ology

Posted on February 22, 2019

Darlings, we saved the most pointless one for last!

Aw, we’re just joking. It’s just that Miss Rachel never really established a look or set of go-to elements for herself for her red carpet game, so attempting to suss out her choices for Oscars night based on past efforts doesn’t really seem to work in her case.

Exhibit A.

This is not great, but more to the point: it’s completely forgettable and badly executed. Get on the train, girl. They’re talking Oscar for you. Step it up.

She’s never been a terrible dresser; just someone who doesn’t seem to have much of a game plan for her promo style. Even someone like Amy Adams, who hasn’t quite nailed the best look for herself, has a set of elements and styles she keeps trying. Rachel’s a bit more all over the map and if we had to analyze it, we’d say she doesn’t have much interest in a fashion campaign for herself.

Like her co-star Olivia Colman, she seemed to step things up a bit as the awards season progressed and it became obvious how much acclaim she was racking up.

While she seems to have no great love of color, she doesn’t appear to be shy about picking looks with notable or head-turning elements. It seems to basically be a matter of convincing her to be more strategic. Once that idea clicks, her fashion gets a lot better.

“Better” in the sense that all the elements are in place and executed fairly well. Nothing feels half-assed or random. It starts feeling planned and thought-out. And if you check these last three looks, they tend to vary a bit more when she puts more effort in. There’s virtually no through-line in these looks, except for the lack of color. Our prediction for Sunday? Based on nothing more than a hunch, we’d say she’s going to go very shimmery and much more “movie star” in tone.
