Oscars 2023: Ladies in a Range of Whites

Posted on March 14, 2023

Along with their fellow attendees Michelle Yeoh and Ariana DeBose, a whole bunch of Oscar ladies showed up in the palest of pales, in looks that ranged from fairy tale to sexy to bridal to tacky and even a little serving of underwear in the mix. Come with us on a judgy journey through the land of creamy whites.


Emily Blunt in Valentino

This is sharp and sexy. The earrings are a great touch, but we think she could’ve used a pendant as well.


Halle Berry in Tamara Ralph Couture

This is kind of glitzy and showy and sexy, but we don’t blame her one bit for going for it. It looks great on her. We’d like it more with quite a few of those glitter roses removed, especially the ones at the hip.


Michelle Williams in Chanel Couture

It’s very “Galadriel goes to the Oscars,” which sort of suits her, but also feels perhaps a little too delicate and ethereal to make an impact. It feels a little matronly to us.


Mindy Kaling in Vera Wang

It’s a striking design and it made for a pleasant surprise, if only because she doesn’t go for hottie all that often. It doesn’t hold up the longer you look at it. The illusion netting is noticeable and both the sleeves and the waist of the skirt are overdesigned. It’s trying to do too many things.


Rooney Mara in Aleander McQueen

Regency underwear. How very expected coming from her. We’re disappointed. This is not the time or place to show up looking like you’re dying from a common cold after being rained on.


Sofia Carson in Giambattista Valli Couture

It’s hard not to to see the bridal undertones, which are so obvious they’re more like just “tones.” The necklace is gorgeous, though.


Zoe Saldana in Fendi Couture

This is probably a bit of a cheat, because this appears to be more off-white if not very pale pink. But like the rest of these gowns, it suffered from the beigey backdrop. Then again, this dress suffers already from being dreary and overdesigned.
