The Best Dressed Of The 2014 Academy Awards Red Carpet

Oscars-2014-best-dressed

It’s the awards show we have all been waiting for: the 86th Academy Awards. And it is just as elegant, glamorous, and gorgeous as we all expected it to be. As with every red carpet, there were of course a few misses, as we saw with the Worst Dressed list, but the best thing about the Oscars style-wise is that everyone puts on their A-game.

We initially noticed there was a ton of white, leading to my questioning if Macklemore might be doing another 50 weddings onstage. Naturally, though, more colors appeared as time went on and voila! A beautiful array of lovely, fun gowns and tuxes. So, sit back, relax and check out all the most wonderful looks of the evening featuring Maria MenounosLupita Nyong’oAmy Adams and more!

First up, Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir. Yes, they look like over-the-top ice skaters on the red carpet, but that’s exactly what we expected, so they deserve a gold star for that (I think, at least). Julia called it with them being amazing and so amazing they are!

I MEAN LOOK AT HIS SHOES.

I usually don’t have strong feelings on stuff Maria Menounos wears, but this gown fits perfectly. It has excellent cap sleeves and a belt that tone it down and make it more casually elegant. (To be fair, anything all sparkly can’t be that casual, but a deep neckline is much more dramatic.)

Whoa, Lady Gaga looks great. Like, slightly-weird-great. But great. I feel like she toned it down knowing that tonight, it was the stars of another form of art’s time to shine.

Guh, I am just loving Emma Watson‘s look so much. Girl really understands silhouettes.

KAREN O GIRL WHAT IS UP?

Hell yesKevin Spacey. That blue is fantastic.

Anne Hathaway Oscars 2014 86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Anne’s dress is actually pretty fantastic. I feel like if Selena were still alive, she would wear this to the awards shows like crazy. What do you guys think?

86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Michael Strahan‘s look didn’t appeal to me at first, but I really love the texture and I think a red carpet host should stand out at least a bit in a fun way, so I wound up liking it a lot more by the end.

Now, for prom queen and king Angelina Jolie and Brad PittKerry Washington‘s Oscars maternity look, Jared Leto‘s epic hair, Lupita Nyong’o's incredible Prada and so many more…

    So am I the only one who doesn’t like Angelinas dress? I just don’t get it. I do like her beauty look though.

    • Samantha Escobar

      I have heard from a few other people that they’re not into it, either! I think it’s kind of a weird one but it looks so comfortably elegant to me that I feel like I’d desperately love to wear it if I were (A) Angelina Jolie and (B) able to go to stuff like the Oscars. Also, YES her makeup and hair were perfect.

    • CMJ

      I HATE what it does at her chest.

    • Tinyfaeri

      Yeah, it makes her look like she has weird, almost saggy boobs, and the elbow joint glitter is a little odd, too.

    • CMJ

      The Fug Girls made a great observation – it’s surprisingly frumpy. While the dress itself is pretty….it just doesn’t flatter her like it should.

    • Tinyfaeri

      See, I don’t know who it wouldn’t look frumpy on – Angelina Jolie’s hard to make look frumpy. That kind of a blousy top is hard to wear. And the elbow glitter is still making me twitch a little.

    • CMJ

      I feel like if it was a fitted bodice with a v neck, straps and no sleeves it would be perfect.

    • Tinyfaeri

      Agreed!

    • shafiq

      hallo………..

  • Crayzcheshire

    Kerry Washington can seemingly never please me while she tries to figure how to dress her beautiful baby-bearin bod. ugh! so much potential :/

    • Samantha Escobar

      You know, I haven’t loved everything she’s worn (I think I specifically didn’t dig the GG’s dress because it was a napkin, basically), but I’m so into this one for some reason!

  • Lindsey Conklin

    sandra, amy, emma, maria, jared, LUPITA

  • Ria

    LUPITA. That is all.

  • RM

    I feel like Angelina’s dress looks like something your mother in law wears to a wedding. I hate it, it looks like frumpy trying to look glamorous.

  • LynnKell

    I only hope that when my hair goes totally grey, I can rock it as cool as Constance Leto.

    Lady Gaga: what a pleasant surprise!!

  • Char

    My jaw dropped when I saw Sandra. She is a vision. Lupita can literally wear ANY color and make it look fantastic. I am in LOVE with Emma Watson’s dress. And I can’t EVEN with Cate Blanchett. She really does not know how to make a bad choice on the red carpet. Simply stunning.

    • …her?

      I cannot even stand how awesome that blue looks on Lupita. I am dying, it’s incredible.

    SANDRA BULLOCK’S DRESS IS KILLING ME WITH HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS OH MY GOD I JUST WANT TO TOUCH IT (NOT WITH HER IN IT, THAT WOULD BE CREEPY)
