Kittens, we feel like taking the uncharacteristic route and doing the highly unlikely thing of starting this post off with some bluntness: this is a hellacious, unholy hose beast of a dress. We know, we know. It’s so unlike us to state our opinion so strongly. Are you scandalized? We apologize. In fact, we’ll go one further and say that we sort of support the choosing and wearing of this undead creature of a Frankendress. No, really.
The skirt is pretty, the top is horrible and neither of them should be paired with the other. To us, it’s probably one of the worst looks of the night. But this year, the Oscars red carpet saw way more of something that it has been lacking for decades: a whole lot of wackadoo fashion. We support more lady stars choosing the cray, even if it means being subjected to hideous monstrosities like the above frock. Bring the wildness back to the Oscars red carpet, we say. It’s all gotten so safe.
