Part one’s here! Part three’s coming! Let’s get to judging, kittens!
Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen
It’s a little too “Peggy Sue Got Married” crossed with more McQueen-like elements. We really wish the bodice wasn’t sheer. It just looks like she forgot something.
Caitriona Balfe in Dundas
It’s a gorgeous dress but we refuse to sign off on heart cutouts.
Camila Cabello in Monique Lhuillier
You’re a pop star, not Scarlett O’Hara. Dial it back a little.
Cynthia Erivo in Mary Katrantzou
YES. SERVE IT, SPACE NEFERTITI.
Diane Lane in Gabriela Hearst
Chic. This word tends to set folks off if we don’t use it precisely, but this, to us, is the very best essence of mature style. Sleek, low-key dramatic, with a smart vibe and a natural poise built into the look + easy to work, because you’ve learned a few lessons over the years. Could she get out there in something drop-dead hot and jaw-droppingly glamorous and cutting-edge trendy? Absolutely. But she doesn’t want to.
Elizabeth Debicki in Armani
This is a really odd dress that is absolutely perfect for her. We’re not convinced on the metallic pumps, though.
Gemma Chan in Tom Ford
It’s a pretty standard GlamGown, but the beading looks a little too much like cobwebs to us.
Kate Beckinsale in Giambattista Valli Couture
No, that’s just silly.
Laura Harrier in Louis Vuitton
Girlfriend came to PARTY. To be honest, we’d much rather the after-party fashions were more along this line. Not that anyone needs to feel obligated to wear a mesh mini-dress, but more of a party feel in the fashion would help set the VF party apart from the seriousness of the Oscars ceremony and give designers and stylists more leeway to show off their goods.
Naomi Campbell in Alexander McQueen
Gorgeous. No one can work McQueen like her.
Natalie Portman in Dior
It’s maybe a little on the dull side, but it’s perfectly her and it’s in that slightly more casual party vibe that we support.
Rita Ora in Alexander McQueen
Shailene Woodley in Dior
We really thought we were done with this trend.
Zoë Kravitz in Saint Laurent
We’re usually not huge fans of the public bra, but that an $18,000 gold mesh Tiffany bra. It’s more jewelry than garment. And we can’t even begin to attempt the argument that she doesn’t look uniquely amazing in it.
