Author Archives: Jessica Our Best and Worst of the Oscars

As ever, we worked up a piece for Cosmo outlining the best, worst, and most noteworthy looks from last night’s Oscars. For example:

Kerry Washington herself noted that she felt a little bit like Olivia Pope in this very pale blush frock. But considering that we’ve spent the last three weeks seeing poor Olivia in various stages of disarray in the hands of terrorists, without even a glass of red wine to keep her spirits up, we have to say that this dress is pure Kerry. Okay, it’s maybe 14 percent bridesmaid. But the rest is Kerry.

Please zip over to Cosmo to take a look at the rest!


Oscars Fug or Fab Carpet: Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein

As ever, her face is show-stopping — Lancome was genius to snap her up for a beauty contract — but I just wish this dress were better. I think if it hadn’t had any of the pearls on it, I might have really like it. It would have been clean, classic Calvin Klein. But I worry that the pearls make it feel extremely overworked.  Shall we discuss?

Oscars Fug or Fab: Emma Stone in Elie Saab (and bonus Monique Lhuillier)

I think I might be alone in liking this. I am not even sure I’m totally with myself in liking it. I literally change my mind from slide to slide. What do you think?

Oscars Well Played, Rosamund Pike in Givenchy

This is VERY SATISFYING to me:

87th Annual Academy Awards - Red Carpet

I’m never going to love matchy-matchy shoes, but other than that, I think she looks utterly stellar in this. After an awards season that brought with it true horrors on her body, it’s nice to see her looking so glamorous and so much like a movie star. Round of applause for the Rosamund Pike team, because they nailed it last night.

Which is good, because earlier this weekend was a wee bit of a whiff:

Oscars Fug Carpet (But Okay Weekend): Keira Knightley

I mean, I feel like I say this every time I write about Keira lately, but regardless of what she’s wearing, her FACE looks GREAT.
