Oscars 2016 Red Carpet Recap

The 2016 Oscars red carpet was a little disappointing. Some of the nominees did not look as good as they’ve looked thus far this award season but luckily there were still a few who knocked it out of the park.

Saoirse Ronan wanted to wear green in honor of Ireland and Calvin Klein obliged beautifully. I think it was interesting that her stylist Elizabeth Saltzman had her wear two different Chopard earrings. I would have preferred if she had just worn the emeralds but it got everyone talking.
Julianne Moore was perfection in a black Chanel gown and Chanel jewels.
Leonardo DiCaprio in Armani tux.
Looking good is the best revenge and Ben Affleck should be eating his heart out. Jennifer Garner looked darn good in custom Versace. You go girl.
I’m so happy to see Sarah Silverman taking the red carpet seriously this award season. I’ve never seen her look better or more grown up.
Eddie Redmayne and his pregnant wife both looked marvelous in Alexander McQueen.
Jennifer Lawrence just gets prettier and prettier. It’s easy to forget that she’s only 25 years old. I do like this Dior dress more than some of her previous looks but I look forward to when her contact is done so we can see her in other designers.
I absolutely love Kate Winslet but this was a misstep by Ralph Lauren. The black silk lamé fabric is not flattering but I do like her loose wavy hair.
I also like Margot Robbie’s casual hair and her gold Tom Ford dress and custom bag by The Row.
Someone tweeted that they want someone to look at them the way John Legend looks at Chrissy Teigen and I have to concur. They were so cute together on the red carpet.
Sometimes I don’t love Dior on the red carpet but they did right by Charlize Theron. The giant Harry Winston diamond doesn’t hurt either.
I thought Olivia Munn looked fresh and modern in her tangerine Stella McCartney gown but I do think she should lay off the plastic surgery and lasers. She doesn’t quite look like herself these days.
I thought Tina Fey was Julia Louis-Dreyfus at first but she still looks beautiful in her purple Versace gown.
Another pretty lady in purple was Reese Witherspoon in Oscar de la Renta by Peter Copping.
Another cute couple was Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber who picked out Naomi’s Armani dress.
Sophia Vergara looked elegant in Marchessa. I would have preferred the top to be a bit higher but that’s her look and she sticks to it.
I was so disappointed by Brie Larson in custom Gucci. She looked like a bridesmaid.
Cate Blanchett always amazes and her sea foam green Armani was dreamy. I don’t think this dress would have worked on anyone else either.
I had never heard of Priyanka Chopra before but she looked drop dead gorgeous in her Zuhair Murad gown. I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of her.
Emily Blunt is adorable and her baby bump looked pretty in Prada.
The one I was most disappointed by was Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton. She looked like a cross between Belle, Ariana Grande, and a balloon window shade. Poor thing.

And that’s a wrap.
