Oscar Aftermath

Alright, alright, alright. Let’s talk about the Oscars, aka my favorite night of the year. Anytime you put celebrities in couture and shove them in a room together, I’m in it for the long haul… and last night was a very long haul. Ellen was the perfect host, Twitter was extra snarky, and the cue music only forced people off the stage like twice… so I’d count it as a successful show.

Because I think of these people as my friends, (shhh it’s fine) I had a hard time picking my favorites. So I’ve compiled the trends of the night, assigned some superlatives, and called it a day. Enjoy.

Celebrity Couples: Brad & Angelina, Matthew & Camila, Jason & Olivia, and Dax & Kristen (my personal favorites)


White Jackets: Ryan Seacrest, Jared Leto, and Matthew McConaughey


Navy: Amy Adams, Kevin Spacey, and Sandra Bullock


Not-so-basic Black: Emma Watson, Julia Roberts, and Charlize Theron


Classic Tux: Bradley Cooper, Zac Efron, and Leonardo DiCaprio


Sparkling Nudes: Cate Blanchett, Giuliana Rancic, and Jenna Dewan. This color was definitely the most popular this year, and these ladies were a few of the MANY rocking the embellished nude gowns.


My Superlatives:

Best Dressed Female: Lupita Nyong’o. Perfect in every single way.


Best Dressed Male: Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Does he ever get it wrong!?


Worst Dressed: Anna Kendrick. Sorry funny lady, I think you’re great, but your dress sure wasn’t.


Most Glam: Kate Hudson. The cape, the low v, the side-swept hair…it’s all good.


Most Boring: Jennifer Lawrence. I know she’s the face of Dior, but why did her Dior gown have to be so “meh”


Best Hair: Jared Leto. He can rock ombre better than any girl.


Just Bizarre: Pharrell Williams… in shorts.


Best Velvet: Ellen Degeneres. Lena Dunham said it best when she tweeted “Every man here needs a lesson in rocking a tux from Ellen.”


Best Brit: Benedict Cumberbatch. His suit game is always on point and he’s funny, charming, and really good at photobombing.


Best Preggo: Olivia Wilde. Flawless.


Worst Preggo: Kerry Washington. She’s so beautiful, but this dress did not flatter her. And I’m not into the whole vampy lip trend.


Agree or disagree? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section.

  1. My girlfriend does that “vampy” thing and I like it… So that’s the only one I disagree with, but I like your descriptions of everything, especially the words you decide to shorten — it’s funny.

  2. Kerry Washington is my GIRL and I was so disappointed to see what she wore to the Oscars. I do have to say though, her Oscar dress is better than the crop top piece she decided to wear at the MTV awards.
