Oscar Dress Report 2018

I finally managed to watch the Oscars and while you don't have to suffer through my not-quite-live-blogging of the ceremony this year (cos it felt a bit weird to do it a week later), I'm still going to do my annual dress report:

Ones I Liked:

Allison Williams

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a big fan of the princess dress and this one ticks all the boxes.


Octavia Spencer

octavia spencer

She's so gorgeous and this dress looks so lovely on her.


Allison Janney


I didn't think I would like a dress with sleeves like this, but she looks so good in it.


Greta Gerwig


Simple and pretty. I love it.


Ashley Judd


A gorgeous dress in my favourite colour. What more could I want?


Lupita Nyong'o

I feel like if you described this dress to me I would hate it, but Lupita looks absolutely fantastic.


Helen Mirren


Simple. Elegant. And the necklace stops it from being boring.


Meryl Streep

It's like the princess dress all grown up. A queen dress, if you will.


Kelly Marie Tran


Possibly my favourite dress of the night. I love the style and the colour and the pattern on the top.


Tiffany Haddish


Apparently this is an Eritrean princess dress. And it is gorgeous.


Ones I'm Not Sure About:

Emily Blunt

emily blunt

I mean, it's a bit weird. But I don't hate it.


Gal Gadot

gal gadot

I'd like this a lot more if it was solid all the way down rather than turning into a super long fringe.


Frances McDormand

frances mcdormand

At first glance I was convinced I would hate this dress, but it's actually grown on me a bit.


Gina Rodriguez

gina rodriguez

So close to being a princess dress, but I just can't get behind the whole narrow skirt + wings thing going on here.




This was originally on my Don't Like list, but it's actually not too bad. I like the greek goddess style, but the colour is a bit drab.


Jane Fonda


Not great but not bad either.


Jennifer Garner

jennifer garner

I want to like this, but the top doesn't work for me.


Laura Dern




Margot Robbie


This has the same problem really. Although the Christmas tinsel over the top does liven it up a bit.


Sandra Bullock

sandra bullock

I'm almost tempted to bump this up into the Like list, but it just doesn't quite work for me.


Nicole Kidman

nicole kidman

I have no idea what's going on with that ridiculous bow thing. And I also have no idea how Nicole managed to make it look kinda good.


Sally Hawkins


I love you Sally, but I can't love this dress.


Salma Hayek

salma hayek

Ok, the top half is quite nice but the rest looks like a lampshade.


Ones I Didn't Like:

Jennifer Lawrence

jennifer lawrence

This is a metallic monstrosity and not an Oscars dress.


Viola Davis

viola davis

It looks like it's made of plastic. Why would you wear a dress made of plastic?


Chelsea Peretti

chelsea peretti

Some people are saying that velvet is coming back into fashion. These people are wrong.


Saoirse Ronan

saoirse ronan

Come on girl, you're nominated for an Oscar. You can't just wrap yourself in a pink sheet and call it a day.


Laurie Metcalf

laurie metcalf

This also looks like it's made of plastic. Did you and Viola Davis go to the same designer?


Lesley Manville

lesley manville

You're nominated for a film about fashion and yet you choose to wear a dress that looks like it's made of old carpet samples?


Maya Rudolph

maya rudolph

When you have the Oscars at 8 but have to go guard Emperor Palpatine at 10.


Danai Gurira

danai gurira

Look, I love you Danai, but if Saorise can't get away with just wrapping a pink sheet around herself then neither can you.


Taraji P Henson

taraji p henson

This was originally in my Not Sure list but then I saw it from this angle and straight to Don't Like it went.


Not a Dress

This year's Not a Dress has to go to the King of Wakanda himself...

Chadwick Boseman

chadwick boseman

Love the jacket.
