The 86th Academy Awards was one of the best ceremonies of ALL time.
Without further ado, lets get to the best dressed, and the not so best dressed, stars from the night.
1. Cate Blanchett.
As we put it in the Mamamia office, Cate Blanchett is “An ethereal Golden Gaytime fairy alien goddess.” With all the nude, strapless and sparkly frocks on the red carpet, Cate’s Armani Prive cap sleeve gown, retro waves and stunning drop earrings came out on top.
2. Lupita Nyong’o.
It’s official. Lupita can wear any colour and still look amazing. She told E! “This is Prada and it was made for me,’ of her custom made dress. ‘It’s a blue that reminds me of the Nairobi sky.’
3. Kate Hudson.
Kate Hudson totally brought it with the satin wings. Yep, never thought I’d say that.
4. Naomi Watts.
Naomi Watts opted for a simple and elegant white Calvin Klein Collection beaded cap sleeve gown, and it paid off.
5. Sandra Bullock.
Is it just us or has Sandra Bullock totally lifted her red carpet game? She looked FLAWLESS in McQueen.
5. Olivia Wilde.
Olivia Wilde’s custom Valentino gown was reminiscent of the one Julia Roberts wore to accept her Best Actress award in 2001. She looked gorgeous and she’s pregnant, so double points to her.
6. Meryl Streep.
7. Margot Robbie.
Margot Robbie may have overdone it a little on the eyebrow dye, but overall this is a killer red carpet look from the Aussie star.
8. Karen O.
It’s an impressive feat when as a musician you can outshine some of the heavyweight style stars of the red carpet. Well played Karen O.
9. Emma Watson.
Ok, stay with me here. I hated this at first, I thought it too heavily referenced the sheer Alexander McQueen disaster a braless Gwyneth Paltrow wore back in 2002. But on second, third, and fourth look I’ve come around – it’s risky, it’s athletic evening wear, it’s basically a glittery singlet.
10. Sally Field.
Oh hello, where did that come from? Ah-mazing.
Field presented a tribute for all the actors we’ve lost this year, so she couldn’t really wear anything other than black but this frock from Randi Rahm was a solid choice.
And now, for the not-so-best dressed:
