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?

Kelly Osbourne

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.

Anna Faris

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.

Sherri Shepherd

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 Davis

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

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.

Nancy O’Dell

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!

Gwyneth Paltrow

What can I say? Gwynnie’s a superhero whose power is pretension.

Tell us: Which celebrity do you think needs a do-over?

    I agree on all above except Gwyneth. Understated elegance, very rich look. When she removed the cape, it looked even better.

  2. DayBreak Lavender says:

    Kelly Osbourne knows fabric, line, cut, proportion and Vionnet, James, Chanel, Balmain and on and on. Cheap shot. Bad info.
    Oh, by the way, she’s also kind.

    I also think Gwyneth looked fantastic! I loved her dress – very sophisticated (but lol at the comment that Gwyneth is a superhero his power is pretension – she is extremely pretensious). Viola Davis likes jewel tones and I thought the dress was okay – but not great. I actually liked Kelly Osbourne’s dress and jewels and she surprisingly does a pretty good job on the Fashion Police. Her problem is that hair! The worst is Nancy O’Dell who not only is wearing an awful color dress, but her orangy blonde hair job clashes. It actually looks worse than Kelly Osbourne’s hair and that’s saying something. I think Shailene Woodley’s dress is fantastic and not too old for her. Fashion for young girls is getting more conservative. I think everyone thinks the dress is too old for her because of the tight bun. She should have worn her hair down or something not quite as severe.

    Gwyneth looked gorgeous and classy. I like it. I like Kelly’s dress, but the hair color is a disaster. I like Nancy Odell’s dress. I pretty much agree on the rest of it.

    Zhang Zhaoxu division from Carl in those days assistant advocate handsome: MAX need is more self-confident
    Sport weeklyReporter Shenyang knows Yu Luosha Ji to report
    California university Berkeley assigns the school team of school, monicker is Jin Xiong, this supports Jin Xiong group, had given a lot of talented people, two the fameddest full back on the history, one is in those days the full back Kevin of sun team makes an appointment with writing abdicate, had made total finals together with Barkley, in Aolazhu on flourishing head cruel had buckled, one is Kyd. Other also have many big cards, for instance Abudu – Laximu, also have those who had taken total champion, the Lyon that just turned to the knight this year namely wave, of course, still have be changed by basket net magic Laienandesen.
    Their present ball house, call Ha Si gymnasium, a flock of alumnus are donated together, contribute most Ha Si, gave 6000 much dollars, gymnasium names with his name. In ball house very interesting, wanted to donate money only, can stay on the wall renown, zhang Zhaoxu is pointing to that brand, say: Look, least namely 1000 dollars.
    The bishop that Jin Xiong currently holds the post ofis experienced, it is benefit of horse of Michael unconscious elder brother, this year 62 years old, had taken Stanford university and college of unconscious person with power, regarded Qiao Zhika as the assistant of Er 2002, taking American team to play game of world bright and beautiful, took the 6th hapless. 2004, he is hired to give priority to a coach by Trojan team, annual it is 34 get the better of 48 negative, after two years, finish class cloudily. Head college group nevertheless, cover Gemali or with facility, this coach has a level very much, and can say particularly, when training a class, he is quack is told suddenly suddenly, was over to let trainer begin to took us to drill, the thing that nevertheless he teachs is quite good still. Zhang Zhaoxu [url=http://cheapairjordansshoes.snack.ws/]cheap jordans shoes[/url] says.
    To Montgomery, zhang Zhaoxu also is the brushstroke fortune of his at hand. Big one, he dare not let Zhang Zhaoxu hit too long, this year, he begins what increase Zhang Zhaoxu conciously slowly to enter the court time, he values most, be Zhao Xu defend. Defending upright, MAX is hit very comfortably, others notchs very hard on his head, do not have a law to cross his the top of head, defending on, he can affect the match really, montgomery says, not be to say he can have the very high count that cover a cap certainly, but the aggression decision that can make adversary change original certainly.
    But go up in aggression, montgomery still has worry, the force that basically is him most is strengthened even, if he can drill the body more lustily, the opportunity is more. I also tell my rear guard, pass a ball to want to notice to MAX, they can attack the ground to pass a ball to him occasionally, I say, he is so tall, your upgrade is thrown, this also is the field that wants an attention. Nevertheless, MAX is obtaining progress, this without doubt.
    Laoshuai points out most core problem is, MAX needs to enhance self-confident heart, when having, he is developed badly, his match level can drop, the impact is very big, he must have enough self-confidence, this may come from China to concern with him, this is the problem on culture, but go up in field, you must self-confident, no matter you are developed well.
