Viola Davis + More: We Love You, But We Don’t Love Your Oscar Dress
Viola Davis, Anna Faris, Shailene Woodley and more made our Worst Dressed at the Oscars list.
You know, there are times when it’s ridiculously easy creating a worst dressed red carpet list (yes, we’re talking to you, Nicole Kidman); but there are also times when it’s just painful to do so. Why? It’s ‘cause we love, admire and respect the actresses – we just can’t stand the dresses! Last night, with the exception of Kelly Osbourne, it was a miserable task writing up the people who need a remedial course in clothing.
Ah well, let’s get on with it, shall we?
Yes, we know that placing Miss O (as Kelly Osbourne likes to call herself) on the worst dressed list is a no-brainer. Between the unflattering hair color, a dress that makes her look like Morticia Addams, and the Aldo shoes, she’s a shoe-in. She’s also here because we’re frankly astounded that she’s now a fashion authority. She wouldn’t know Vionnet, Balmain or Lili Ann if they bit her on the butt. Props go to her Sutra jewelry, though.
We love Anna Faris and her big goofy laugh. We love her fearlessness. We don’t love her beaded Diane Von Furstenberg dress—it would’ve looked better on Betty White.
OH. MY. GAWD. What happened?! Sherri Shepherd’s gown is a disaster! The neckline looks like it’s got caged animals in there – and they’re not happy.
Viola! Viola! Viola! I have a massive girl crush on her. She’s brilliant. I wish she’d stop showing off her boobies, though. Yes, Viola, we know you’ve got a killer bod. But could you wear something a bit more complementary? This has to be the cheesiest Vera Wang gown that we’ve ever seen. URGH.
Shailene Woodley’s a good actress and we think she’s going to have a long, storied career. We also think that this Valentino gown, while quite lovely, is just too too old for her. Shailene, you don’t have to dress like Courtney Stodden, but something more age-appropriate would’ve looked better on you.
So this is what a bumble bee wears to a formal affair? Good to know. Oops, never mind — it’s not a bumble bee, it’s Nancy O’Dell!
What can I say? Gwynnie’s a superhero whose power is pretension.
Tell us: Which celebrity do you think needs a do-over?
