As I mentioned yesterday on our post about the Oscar nominations, I’ve had the words “Andrea Riseborough red carpet retrospective???” written on a Post-It on my desk for literally years. I just never got around to it. But the day has come, now that she’s gotten a shocker nod for Best Actress. (Even she was surprised!) Many, many times throughout the years that we’d been doing this site, I’ve commented that I have Andrea Riseborough Face Blindness. I remember a while ago that a journalist mentioned to her that she was hard to recognize from project to project (and I wish I could find this piece to link to it! If you wrote it, let me know!) and she was taken aback. But looking at Andrea’s pics from the last fifteen-ish years, the woman is a chameleon — which I actually think is a plus for a serious actor. She also dramatically changes up her hair AND vibe a lot. (If you think about it, most super-recognizable actors pick a look and really stick with it, even if that look is Kooky David Bowie Enthusiast.) I’m still unsure if I’d recognize her if she came up to me at the market and asked me where the Yoplait was. But I can tell you one thing for sure: She has worn some INTERESTING STUFF. Let’s take a look.

PS: If you love red carpet retrospectives of Oscar nominees, don’t miss the ones we’ve done for Cate Blanchett, Angela Bassett, and Michelle Yeoh.
