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

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

9446173bp

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

~*~

Greta Gerwig

9446173fu

Simple and pretty. I love it.

~*~

Ashley Judd

9446173cd

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

~*~

Lupita Nyong'o

lupita nyong'o

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

~*~

Helen Mirren

9446173ee

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

9446177aa

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

~*~

Tiffany Haddish

927248956

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.

~*~

Zendaya

9446173fm

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

9446173cv

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

9446173do

Meh.

~*~

Margot Robbie

9446173fp

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

9446173gf

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.
