The Oscars red carpet featured the biggest stars in Hollywood wearing some of the most coveted — and expensive — designs in fashion.
The Academy Awards, as the most prestigious awards ceremony and red carpet in the world, calls for couture and high glamour. From Chanel to Gucci and Valentino to Versace, many celebrities hit the carpet this year ready to fight for the title of best dressed, while others fell short.
We’ve gathered some of our favourite — and not so favourite — looks from the red carpet and want Yahoo Canada readers to have their say, too.
Who was this years best and worst dressed star?
BEST: Scarlett Johansson in Oscar de la Renta
Johansson oozed glamour on the red carpet in a silver gown by Oscar de la Renta, which featured a corseted bodice with strands of sparkling embellishments.
WORST: Kristen Wiig in Valentino Couture
The “Bridesmaids” star and former “Saturday Night Live” funny woman’s avant-garde Valentino was a fashion miss that garnered laughs from fans for all the wrong reasons.
BEST: Regina King in Atelier Versace
The 2019 Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner continued her reign of the red carpet in a pale pink gown with delicate rhinestone detailing and dramatic train.
WORST: Salma Hayek in Gucci
Hayek looked overwhelmed by her grecian-inspired gown with one-shoulder detailing. The look could have been a hit had it not been for the distracting hair accessories and overall styling.
BEST: Brie Larson in Celine
The “Captain Marvel” star and 2015 Best Actress Oscar winner shined in a blush gown by Celine. From the fit to the delicate hair and makeup, Larson’s look was by far one of the best on the red carpet.
WORST: Sandra Oh in Elie Saab
While Oh is a Canadian treasure and frequent red carpet favourite, the ruffled sleeves combined with the flowered detailing on the hem and the sparkling fabric felt chaotic and overwhelming. By removing any one of those details, including the bow on the belt, this dress could have been a winner.
BEST: Geena Davis in Romona Keveza
Davis was an unexpected dark horse on the Oscars red carpet thanks to her dazzling black Romona Keveza gown. At 64 years old, the “Thelma & Louise” star taught the young Hollywood starlets how to really work a red carpet.
WORST: Laura Dern in Armani
Dern’s black and pink Armani gown was an underwhelming offering from one of awards’s seasons leaders in red carpet fashion. The fringe detailing seemed awkward and out of place, making the entire look a rare misstep from the beloved star.
BEST: Renée Zellweger in custom Armani
Zellweger saved her best look of awards season for last with this white asymmetrical Armani gown. The 2004 Best Supporting Actress winner for “Cold Mountain” and 2020 Best Actress nominee for “Judy” kept things simple with minimal jewellery and makeup, letting the modern, clean lines of her gown take centre stage.
WORST: Olivia Coleman in Stella McCartney
The 2019 Best Actress winner for “The Favourite” sadly delivered one of our least favourite red carpet looks from this year’s Oscars. The heavy fabric and fit of the gown failed to show off the dress’s detailing, including the structured shoulders.
