Darlings, were there more celebrity couples than usual at this year’s Vanity Fair Oscars party? Not at all! But let’s pretend there was something novel about seeing power couples on the red carpet because we have a lot of looks left to get through and if we don’t find some way to amuse ourselves while tearing through them, our commentary will be sad and perfunctory. Transparency in blogging, kittens! Other sites would try to give you a hot take here, but we’re telling ya: it’s just a framing device to get through a lot of lewks at one go.

Anna Paquin (in Monique Lhuilier) and Stephen Moyer
We have to say, the frilly prairie dress trend has really worn us down. We actually like this on her. The polka dots are a cute and unexpected effect on a design like this. The red-and-green color story is a bit too holiday, though.
We can’t even with him.
Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy in Adidas
We think some folks must have assumed we were going to rail against this, but honestly, it’s an AFTER party. As much as we appreciate the heightened fashion at the VF party, there’s a good argument to be made that it’s gotten a little out of hand. We’re not suggesting that track suits should be considered a normal choice for such an event, but we think this is actually kind of cute and funny as a one-off joke; especially coming from a nominee who knew she wasn’t winning.
Chrissy Teigen (in Marchesa) and John Legend (in Gucci)
This all seems to be in order. We don’t actually love her dress, but it’s so on-brand for her unique form of drag. The feather placement is really weird, though.
Diana Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross (in Versace)
As many a scholar more learned and wise on these matters than us have pointed out time and time again throughout the ages (and we paraphrase here), “Black does not, in fact, crack.”
They look so well coordinated that they look like one of the “family drag makeovers” on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Joe Jonas (in Armani) and Sophier Turner (in Louis Vuitton)
She looks like the dictionary definition of a Hollywood starlet. His teenytux looks ridiculous on him.
Joe Manganiello (in Isaia) and Sofia Vergara (in Dolce&Gabbana)
Congrats, you two. You’re still hot.
We like her dress. Sure, it’s boobtacular, but she’s successfully moved away from the mermaid skirts and cha-cha dresses she was stuck in for half a decade there.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth in Saint Laurent
She looks very glamorous. He should be wearing an undershirt and sporting half a teaspoon of hair product.
Priyanka Chopra (in Elie Saab Couture) and Nick Jonas (in Missoni)
As you may know, our first impulse is to be total bitches here, but in truth, they look great. That’s a fabulous take on a tuxedo dress.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (in Versace) and Jason Statham
Sam Taylor-Johnson and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (in Tom Ford)
He’s exactly the Tom Ford ideal. Her dress has a regal and chic understated quality that looks great next to his slightly dandified presentation.
