The 86th Academy Awards was filled with beauty, glamour and all manner of splendor. It’s one of the most anticipated red carpets of the year because so many stars go for the gold, wearing floor-length couture gowns, crisp tuxes, and incredible, full dresses.
Sometimes, though, red carpet style misses the mark, like in the case of some of tonight’s stars–we even guessed who they might be beforehand. So, while we love Anna Kendrick, Julia Roberts and Jennifer Lawrence, their looks just weren’t quite up to par with the rest of ’em.
And before somebody gets all sassy about the critiques, yes, I typed this from my bed while eating popcorn and I am probably ~*jus jealouz*~.
Normally I love Ireland Baldwin’s style–both on the red carpet and off–but this dress missed the mark from cut to fabric-choice.
You know how sometimes, you’re in Forever 21 and you spot a dress across the room that looks amazing, then you get up close and realize why it has a $22.50 price tag? That is how I feel about Louise Roe‘s gown.
Ryan Seacrest is one of my favorite humans in the entertainment industry for no reason, so this deeply pains me. But he’s wearing Burberry here and he looks like he’s illustrating the difference between French vanilla and vanilla ice.
Kristin Chenoweth, just because you look like an Oscars statue doesn’t mean you get an Oscars statue.
Okay, I kind of hate Liza Minnelli‘s outfit because the fabric is awful, but I mostly hate it because I think the blue streak thing could’ve been awesome had she worn something coordinating rather than completely matching 100%.
Cristin Milioti‘s dress is ill-fitting at its bodice and all its wrinkles don’t help.
Did whomever sewed Olga Kurylenko‘s dress start at the bottom, then took 11 shots prior to finishing the top?
Is it weird that I’m annoyed with Kellen Lutz‘s pants because they don’t match his jacket fabric-wise?
I love Julia Roberts so much and I really wanted to like this dress, but it looks so roughly cut and awkward.
Now, for some fleshy batwings, Anna Kendrick’s complicated lingerie dress and J Law’s peplum fail…
Julie Delby wore the creepiest flesh wings I have seen since Jeepers Creepers.
Oh, Anna Kendrick. I expected better of you, girl.
You’re amazing, Pharrell, but that doesn’t mean you can wear a look like that and stay clear of this list.
Oof, Jennifer Lawrence’s scarlet peplum gown combined with that poofy slicked style everyone keeps inexplicably perpetuating don’t make for a good look. I would normally like the reversed necklace drape, but it doesn’t coordinate well with her gown’s back line.
Chrissy Teigen‘s not doing so well on the red carpet lately. :(
Oh man, I love Charlize Theron but her boobs are wearing Maleficent’s horns right now.
