Worst Dressed at the 83rd Academy Awards
My oh my! Some stars like Halle Berry we hoped wouldn’t land on this list. Others like Nicole Kidman seem to live on the worst dressed list.
Writing a worst dressed list is way more fun than writing up the best dressed list for any award show. Perhaps it’s because when something is bad on the red carpet, it’s spectacularly bad. Last night’s Oscar’s red carpet was no exception. Mila Kunis and Cate Blanchett, who usually are amazing on the red carpet … didn’t. Nicole Kidman, looked fab at the Grammys, but didn’t do so swell last night.
Honestly, there are people who we didn’t want to put here, but they did it to themselves.
Read on for our worst dressed picks of the night.
If they ever remake Flash Gordon, Cate Blanchett could use this Givenchy Couture gown to play Ming the Merciless.
… And Gwyneth Paltrow could play Cate’s lead evil henchwoman. This Calvin Klein gown screams space alien. Check out the pointy boobs of this dress — they could poke an eye out. Not a good look.
Has anyone introduced Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine to color? Ever? She wore a beige Givenchy horror to the Grammys and now this amazingly boring Valentino (who knew he made boring dresses?). Florence — color won’t hurt you!
Oh this is painful. All year long, at every award show, Mila Kunis has been an outstanding red carpet “do” and now this! While I love the feel of this gown — it’s very Belle Epoque — the doilies that cover the girls, the angled lace and the way it’s draped is, let’s say, pretty bad. Twitter went wild when Mila stepped on the red carpet. A few people tweeted that she stole some grandmere’s slip cover and matching lace tatting. Yes,the jewelry by Neil Lane is wonderful (you can’t fault jewelry), but still…. oh Mila, how could you do this to us??
Are we detecting a theme here? First it was attack of the aliens, now is it attack of the doilies? Her bed head hairstyle doesn’t match the formality of the occasion and her dress — oh dear! The lining is wacky, the color not great on the usually superb looking Scarlett Johansson, and the lace, well, it looks like a doily that’s been stretched within an inch of its life.
