Academy Awards 2018: Best And Worst Dressed

Last night the Academy Awards celebrated 90 years of Oscar. For the occasion, the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles was decked out like never before. The sets, the lighting, even the video montages were truly spectacular.

Jimmy Kimmel served as host (for the second year in a row), closing his monologue at the top of the show by offering a jet ski to the winner with the shortest acceptance speech. 

The awards were punctuated by live performances of several of the nominees for best song. Does anyone else get chills when they hear "This is Me" from the Greatest Showman? I love, love, love that song. 

There were victors from so many of this year's most memorable movies, including The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri and I, Tonya. Coco was a big winner, taking home trophies for best animated feature and best song. 

While it's always fun to root for your ballot picks during the actual show, the true event happens before . . . on the red carpet. Each year the nominees bring their fashion A-game to the Oscars, which is unequivocally the most prestigious show of the season. The Oscars always seem to inspire classic Hollywood glamour, which I fully support. 

Below are my picks for the best and worst dressed at this year's Academy Awards. 


1. Allison Janney - I have loved Allison Janney for a long time (C.J. Cregg on The West Wing is one of my idols) and I have been cheering for her all season as she does her victory lap with the cast of I, Tonya. Janney stepped out of the limo is a perfectly fitted red dress with dramatic sleeves. Her hair was pulled it a loose, low bun and she wore just the right amount of bling with a single-strand necklace. Before any trophies were handed out, she already looked like a winner.

2. Jennifer Garner - Ben Affleck, if you're watching, you are such an idiot. Jennifer Garner, a presenter last night, waltzed onto the red carpet in a royal blue gown that looked as if it was made just for her. The bodice was fitted, while the skirt and train floated like something from a dream. For hair, she rocked those classic Hollywood waves. Her earrings had a hint of blue to match the dress, but didn't feel overly matchy matchy. The look was gorgeous.

3. Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd - Known for their vocal support of the Me Too movement, the actresses walked the red carpet together. They both looked stunning - Mira is a blush colored, one shoulder number and Ashley in a deep purple strapless dress with shimmering jewels.

4. Gal Gadot - I am ashamed to admit I haven't seen Wonder Woman yet, but I am super familiar with its lead actress Gal Gadot. Last night she twinkled on the red carpet in this flapper-style dress. The necklace felt like overkill, but points for a great dress choice and beautifully simple hair and makeup.

5. Jennifer Lawrence - Despite that fact that she looked like an Amazon woman standing next to the super petite Jodi Foster, Jennifer Lawrence made some excellent style decisions. Let's start with her hair - those blond, beachy waves were what every girl dreams of when she goes to DryBar. Her metallic dress showed off her great figure. Despite the dark, gun metal color, the spaghetti straps and sweetheart neckline made it feel feminine.

Now onto those who missed the mark. 


1. Diane Warren - Diane Warren, a nominee for best song, was one of the first people I saw on the red carpet and I audibly gasped when she walked up to Ryan Seacrest. The silver detailing on the back of her jacket looked like she was wearing a sheet of tin foil.

2. Tiffany Haddish - It kills me to put actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish on this list because I think she's amazing. I've only recently started to know about her and follow her, but in every interview she gives she cracks me up. When I saw her turn the corner on the red carpet and eventually talk to Michael Strahan, all I could think was, "Oh. No." Thankfully when she took the stage as a presenter, she changed into a different dress - a white, form fitting gown that was both simple and elegant.

3. Camila Alves - Walking the red carpet with her husband, Matthew McConaughey, Camila looked like she was wrapped in toilet paper. The bottom of her dress was particularly haphazard.

4. Emily Blunt - This is another one that kills me! Emily Blunt, who I love and adore, made such a horrific choice with her dress last night. For someone in such fantastic shape, she was hiding her body in this dowdy, weirdly bunched dress. The high neck was suffocating.

5. Emma Stone - Emma Stone is always a toss up. She's been on my best dressed list (here and here), but also on the worst (here and here). Last night she chose an outfit that didn't feel formal enough for the occasion. It also felt a bit juvenile. When she walked on stage to present, I just wanted to wave a magic wand and transform her into a woman in a stunning dress or a sharp pant suit. Major miss.

I actually liked Emma Stone’s look but other than that you and I are in complete agreement! My addition would be Rita Moreno and that awesome dress she wore 56 years ago - still looks amazing and current! Do you know the story of Tiffany Hadish’s white dress? The second one?

Several people have told me they loved Emma Stone's look. I guess I am in the minority on that one! Rita Moreno looked stunning. I don't even fit into things I bought last year! I only just found out about both of Tiffany Haddish's dresses - wish I had been able to hear that during the red carpet instead of seeing it online 24 hours later.
