Best of 2017 Academy Awards Red Carpet

Emma Stone in Givenchy Couture

If it weren’t for Taraji P.Henson and the final 4 (meaning the last 4 memorable arrivals on the red carpet: Emma Stone, Brie Larson, Viola Davis and Naomie Harris) this red carpet could have easily gone in history as the worst of the worst. So many fails, safe and boring choices, I’m really underwhelmed of everything I’ve seen tonight – and quite frankly really disappointed since this will be the last major red carpet till MET Gala in May. It was so bad that I HAD TO add Dakota Johnson in that should-have-been-beautiful-but-it’s-not butter Gucci and her weird hair & Jessica Biel in that gorgeous Kaufmanfranco that she managed to ruin with that horrible necklace to the best dressed list in order to reach 20 looks in total.

Couple of notes to take before wedding/prom season: black velvet is IN so deep that.. OK I’m not going to make a sex joke about it but it’s IN. Also high neck red gowns, if you’re looking for an alternative style that non of your cousins will wear.

Kudos to Janelle Monae for the huge (and only) fashion risk of the night and I have to add, before I wrap up, that I LOVE Dev Patel’s mom’s look. Here are my 20 favorite looks from the night:
