Oscars 2015: Fug Nation’s Worst-Dressed

And, the worst-dressed. Same rules apply as with best-dressed: All the contenders are in one slideshow, but the telecast and post-parties are split up in the polls. Which are after the jump, because: long. Judge, then convict.

Oscars 2015: Fug Nation’s Best-Dressed

Okay, because the Oscars are A Grand Affair, we do two separate Best Dressed polls: for the main ceremony, and the after parties. All the candidates — chosen from the stuff we liked, and then trying to gauge what you responded to that we didn’t — are in this slideshow, with the telecast contenders first, then the post-parties (all labeled). The separate polls are after the jump.

Sorry if that seems confusing; we’re trying not to drag out the voting, and four different posts certainly feels like it would. As ever, it’s an evolving beast.

These kinds of dresses — no, I can’t believe this isn’t the first one I’ve seen, either, but it’s not –always just look to me as if someone is giving saucy rabbit ears to a woman’s torso. It doesn’t seem particularly flattering? I mean, don’t get me wrong: I like a deep vee. But something about this just looks like someone snuck a wedge of dress pie from the sartorial dessert that was cooling off in the fridge. And, great.  Now I want dessert.
