A week ago today millions of us were glued to the TV watching Hollywood walk the red carpet at the 88th Academy Awards, mostly commonly referred to as the Oscars. Oscar night is arguably the biggest night of the season in the acting world therefore, Hollywood stars tends to bring their fashion “A” game saving their best look for this huge night well maybe not all of them.
Let’s take a look at KYC’s choices or best and worst dressed at the 2016 Oscar’s.
2016 Oscar Worst Dressed
Where did the Kate on the SAG red carpet go? How quickly we go from the top right down to the bottom. I don’t think any of us was really expecting Kate to step out on the red carpet in this underwhelming strapless black Ralph Lauren gown with a train. It wasn’t the styling of her hair, make-up or accessories, that all looked great. It wasn’t even the overall style of the dress as it was very basic. But it was the horrific fabric choice that this dress was made in that won Kate a place on our worst dress list. The extreme sheen of this dress was too much, kinda reminiscent of a slimy black leech fresh out the water.
Yes we know that British Costume Designer Sandy Powell has a quirky personal style and that suits her. However we felt the print on this vintage inspired suit was too overwhelming for the red carpet.
Oh Heidi, here we go again. I don’t think there is much anyone can say about Heidi Klum in this 50 shades of lavender Marchesa gown. It’s the one sleeve and the foo foo flowers that take it way over the top to ugly. Joe Zoe was asked on I believe on ET on how this look could go from a miss to a hit and he nailed it. His thoughts were to remove the sleeve and both flowers and add a gorgeous broach on the shoulder. There really is no excuse for this fashion behavior from supermodel and project runway creator and judge Heidi Klum.
2016 Oscar Best Dressed
We had high expectations for Alicia Vikander and she did not disappoint in this yellow custom Louis Vuitton gown. Many compared her look to Disney’s Princess Belle of “The Beauty and the Beast” and she definitely was the belle of the 8th Oscar Ball.
Quantico star Priyanka Chopra was an elegant vision in her stunning lace appliqué white Zuhair Murad gown. I have always loved how white looks on a woman of colour. Overall it has been a look we have seen before but she made it look fresh and new.
Chrissy Teigen can teach a class on how to be pregnant and still rock the Red Carpet. Hair and make- up was on point, having the soon to be mom glowing and looking fresh. Although there were a couple snags that caused some on the spot alteration while Chrissy was in the gown, she didn’t let that phase her as she still looked fierce in her red beaded and embroidered Marchesa gown.
Charlize Theron and Lady Gaga always know how to bring drama to the red carpet in different but both great ways.
Charlize Theron made a statement in this true red, plunging neckline Dior gown. The dress drapped over her body perfectly it just looked like effortless beauty. The long diamond studded pendant necklace by Harry Winston was a bold choice that we are glad was made. Charlize is so confident in her ‘sexy’ and if anyone was going to take on this daring plug we are glad it was Charlize.
Lady Gaga was a fashion lovers dream. It was dramatic, it was artistic, it was different, it was outside of the box and it was wearable fashion. The mastermind designer was Lady Gaga’s former stylist and friend Brandon Maxwell. It was one of the best pant ensembles to grace the red carpet.
