Jada Pinkett Smith turned heads on the Oscars red carpet, but not necessarily for all the right reasons.

On Sunday night, the 50-year-old star walked the red carpet at the 94th Academy Awards alongside husband Will Smith. For the event, Pinkett Smith donned an emerald green couture Jean Paul Gaultier gown.

The green silk dress featured a ruched bodice with a high neckline and long sleeves, as well as a full ruffled skirt and train.

Some fans online praised the fashion-forward look, calling it "fab," while others were more impressed by the Smiths "looking half their age."

"Jada Pinkett Smith has won the red carpet," raved one Twitter user.

Others weren't as thrilled with the gown, with some even comparing it to "a massive kale leaf" and a "sexy cabbage"- inspired look.

Another Twitter user noted that the dress looked like a "tarp."

Aside from the gown's appearance, others thought that Pinkett Smith was also "clearly struggling" with the cumbersome skirt and train.

Regardless of whether or not fans were loving the dress, Pinkett Smith was clearly feeling the look.

The "Red Table Talk" host shared a collection of dramatic portraits to her Instagram account on Sunday night.

"Keep your fingers crossed," she captioned the post, in reference to her husband Will's big night.

The 53-year old actor received his third Oscar nomination thanks to his performance in "King Richard" (his previous Best Actor nominations were for "Ali" in 2002 and "The Pursuit of Happyness" in 2007) — a role that may just win Smith his first Academy Award.

The film follows Richard Williams, a passionate father who is determined to write his two daughters, Venus and Serena, into history as star tennis players.
