2019 Awards Season has begun and now we get to see the best and worst looks on the red carpet. This year the celebs did a great job and there were some beautiful looks. But there were also some boring and disastrous outfits. So lets review how our favourite actors dressed to accept their big awards last night.
Regina King wowed in this rose Alberta Ferretti cocktail dress. The strapless sparkly gown accentuated her curves perfectly. The dress itself could have been styled sweet or overly sexy, but as a mother, Regina kept it on the classy side. Her hair and makeup are flawless. This double nominee is certainly one of the best dressed of the night.
Sandra Oh brought the Hollywood glamour in this bright white asymmetrical Atelier Versace gown. The ruche detailing on the shoulder brought enough drama to make the look memorable and modern. Sandra’s vintage-inspired side-swept hair and bright red lip go so well with the look. Her final touch included ethically sourced Forevermark diamond earrings and bangles. Such a beautiful look.
Kristen Bell looked pretty in pale pink with this Zuhair Murad gown. I love the detailing on the shoulder that tied in well with the diamond bracelets. The dress, the hair, the makeup, the jewelry. All perfection.
Emily Blunt & John Krasinski are possibly the best dressed couple on the red carpet tonight. Emily wowed in this silver lace Alexander McQueen gown. Her fresh face and swept up hair gives her an effortless look. John looks dashing in his navy tuxedo and matching Louboutin Alpha Male flats. It doesn’t get much better than this.
Lady Gaga made a big statement in her big periwinkle Valentino Haute Couture gown. And while it swallowed her tiny frame, she paid homage to Judy Garland’s character in the 1954 version. While I don’t love love love the dress, I do think the outfit works. Though I would never suggest someone colour their hair periwinkle, it kept it true to Gaga. She finished the look with massive jewelry from Tiffany and silver Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.
Penelope Cruz stunned in this Ralph & Russo Couture halter-top gown. It caught the light so beautifully illuminating designs in purple and turquoise. The dress was sophisticated, interesting and pure fashion. While Penelope asserted this week that her and Donatella Versace (who she portrayed in last year’s FX Series: The Assassination of Gianni Versace) still have a good relationship, I’m surprised that she didn’t wear Versace for this event. Also, she just started her campaign with Chanel…so that would have been my second guess for her choice of designer.
Nicole Kidman looks incredible in this Michael Kors’ sequinned gown. Nicole looks stunning, classy and sexy. The skintight dress is daring but works perfectly. Red is always a risk on the red carpet, but Nicole is a veteran and pulls it off. The hair and makeup are (as usual) flawless. And I LOVE the disco ball bag she chose to finish her look. WOW.
Halle Berry brought the sexiness in this Zuhair Murad wine coloured dress. With lace and velvet inserts, she turned heads with a deep plunging neckline and high slit. Love the hair and the long pony. Halle proves that she still has it!
Timothée Chalamet looked like a dashing Bond villain in this head-to-toe Louis Vuitton outfit. Timothée took a risk wearing this beaded and sequinned harness but he can pull it off because of his youth. He finished the look with Cartier rings, cufflinks and bracelets.
Saoirse Ronan looked angelic in custom Gucci. The dress was a pure work of art. The gown was made of antique platinum beaded sheer tule with exquisite crystal embroidery. Her slicked back hair was very on trend and I loved the statement Chopard jewelry.
Constance Wu turned heads in this custom Vera Wang gown. While it was certainly a risk, this nude A-line tule gown with sheer corset and deep orange velvet bow came together for one of the most memorable looks of the evening. I love the fact that Constance wanted to work with an Asian-American designer for her look.
Charlize Theron played it safe in this black and white Dior gown. While she looks stunning, I doubt that anyone will remember this dress next week. The bow detail is tasteful and it fits her perfectly. The major draw to this look is her hair, makeup, and all the Bvlgari jewels.
Julianne Moore fails to deliver in this custom Givenchy Haute Couture gown. Julianne is always one of my red carpet favourites but this just underwhelmed. I disliked the large bow on the back. And in all honesty, I’m just glad that Meghan Markle didn’t walk down the aisle in this one. Julianne, go back to Tom Ford.
Claire Foy fizzled in this yellow Miu Miu dress. The dress was poorly fit and it wrinkled along the body. The yellow colour made Claire look jaundice in photos. Even the starbursts on the fabric weren’t enough to save this look.
Amy Adams wore this boring custom Calvin Klein dress. I am not calling it a gown because its so underwhelming. The blue-teal colour was pleasant on Amy but as a double nominee, I really expected much more. The only interesting thing to this look was the earrings and jewelry.
Julia Roberts has me torn in custom Stella McCartney. I love the outfit but I dislike the colour of the top. The colour just is too close to her natural skin tone. However, I like the design. Her hair and makeup are incredible. She has never looked better. The Chopard jewelry is beautiful but not enough to save this look.
Darren Criss failed to impress in this Christian Dior floral tuxedo. While I usually love a bold tux jacket, this didn’t cut it. It looked oversized and the wide lapel covered the majority of Darren’s chest. I would have styled it differently with a more relaxed feel without the bowtie. Sorry Darren…
Kate Mara looked like one of the disgruntled fembots from Austin Powers in this Miu Miu babydoll dress. The tribal ponytail looks out of place. I’m done.
Emma Stone failed hard in Louis Vuitton. She looked like a nude fish. Fire your stylist, keep your makeup and hair team, and redeem yourself at the Oscars.
Elisabeth Moss was misguided in this short Dior dress. I loved your black dress from last year so much more. Love you but this dress needs to go back on the discount prom rack.
I loved Anne Hathaway’s shoes. The rest of it gives me nightmares. What the heck was she thinking with this Elie Saab dress? I miss the days of Anne stunning me in high fashion. I just can’t.
Debra Messing looked silly in this Pamela Roland crystal and feathered cape dress. I love Debra and her her hair and makeup were beautiful but this dress belongs on the back of a retired showgirl. I’m disappointed.
Janelle Monae always brings style to her red carpet looks. This one however fell flat to me. As much as I love Chanel, this Egyptian inspired look did not work. There is too much going on with the heavy tweed overlay, the dramatic collar, the belt, the embellishments on the hems and finally the hat. Janelle I think got trapped between couture and costume.
