Tonight, Lupita Nyong’o not only outdid herself or everyone else on the red carpet but she also outdid ANY dress that will make appearance on any red carpet ever again. She wore the ultimate fancy frock, the most beautiful dress in the history of dresses. Francisco Costa, designer of Calvin Klein, created this mesmerizing mermaid gown using 6,000 pearls and my god, it is breathtaking. Not only will it go down in history as one of the best looks of Academy Awards, but most probably also be displayed in a museum some day.
My all time can-do-no-wrong star Naomi Watts came in second, if not for Lupita could have easily been no 1, stunned in a grey printed deep cut halterneck Armani Privé dress with a bralette detail from the side and back. 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson was also one of the hits in a sleek red Saint Laurent (Christian would have looooved it) with the most perfect one shoulder detail I’ve ever seen in my life.
Rosamund Pike in red hot Givenchy, Reese Witherspoon in white Tom Ford with black drop shoulder line, Julianne Moore in embellished custom Chanel, Sienna Miller in ODLR and Emma Stone in Elie Saab are my other favorites of the night.
While most of the looks were ok red carpet wide, there were also some serious WTF moments. Like Solange Knowles in the most hideous tops and pants combo I’ve ever encountered, anywhere, or Felicity Jones in an absurd Alexander McQueen ball gown which can’t possibly hold a candle to her glorious Balenciaga dress at SAG awards.
