Linda Cardellini steps out in a hot pink ruffled creation at the 2019 Oscars: 'How many muppets had to die'

Linda Cardellini stepped out on the red carpet to support Best Picture-nominated film Green Book on Sunday night, but some people seem to be confusing her with a character on Sesame Street after seeing her red carpet look.

The actress, known for her roles in Freaks and Geeks and Scooby-Doo, arrived at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday in a statement-making dress that has incited mixed reviews. The hot pink chiffon high-low hem gown with a light pink bow caught everyone’s attention, but only some had positive things to say about the bold look.

Others compared Cardellini to Elmo or Big Bird’s red-headed sister, and one even said the 43-year-old looked like she had gone into somebody’s craft closet for the ensemble.

Regardless of the various reactions, Cardellini is earning points for confidently owning her style.
