As we venture further into awards season, celebrity stylists are working over time to create a look that, for better or worse, stands out on the red carpet.
With both the Grammys and the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTAs) taking place, the biggest stars were torn between the bright lights of Hollywood and the U.K.’s most prestigious award show.
We’ve rounded up some of the most memorable fashion highs and lows from the past week and now we’re asking our Yahoo Canada readers to choose their best and worst dressed star of the week.
From Amy Adams to Jake Gyllenhaal, vote in our polls and be the judge and be sure to scroll down for the full outfit details.
Anyone we missed? Let us know in the comments below and make sure to check back here every week for your next chance to vote. We’ll announce the winners (and losers) every Monday.
BEST: Cate Blanchett
The statuesque Oscar-winner debuted a bold new look on the BAFTA red carpet, sporting dark locks and a bejewelled gown by Christopher Kane. The stunning neckline and coordinating jewelry add the right amount of high fashion edge that we’ve come to appreciate from Blanchett.
WORST: Margot Robbie
There’s no denying that the Australian actress is a knockout, but her Chanel ensemble at the BAFTAs doesn’t do her any justice. From the sleeves to the tulle mermaid skirt – Robbie’s beauty gets lost in the busyness of the gown.
BEST: Maren Morris
Can I get a “Hallelujah?” The “My Church” singer looked pretty in pink in a tulle Carolina Herrera gown at the MusiCares pre-Grammys gala honouring music icon Dolly Parton. While this shade of pink can easily foray into Barbie doll territory, Morris manages to pull off the look and matching lip colour by keeping the rest of her styling simple.
WORST: Jake Gyllenhaal
Despite looking vaguely familiar to the couch my grandparents owned in the 70s, there’s not a whole lot to say about Gyllenhaal’s Dries van Noten suit at the opening of his play, “Sea Wall/A Life” in New York City.
BEST: Miley Cyrus
In the Hollywood equivalent to upstaging the bride, Cyrus stole the show at the premiere of husband Liam Hemsworth’s new film, “Isn’t It Romantic.” While Hemsworth couldn’t attend due to health issues, all eyes were on the singer in her gorgeous red Valentino gown instead of the rest of the cast. That’s how it goes in the business they call show.
WORST: Rita Ora
You’ve got to hand it to Rita Ora – despite the fact that nobody can name any of her music, she keeps trying to stand out and will use bizarre fashions to do so. This Yanina dress might look like Bjork’s swan dress after it’s gone through the dryer, but had cameras flashing at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party.
BEST DRESSED: Kacey Musgraves
Did Musgraves manifest her Grammy wins? Just days before taking home the coveted “Album of the Year” award, the country singer wowed in this gold J. Mendel gown at the MusiCares gala honouring Dolly Parton. Ask, believe, receive, kids. That’s how the universe works.
WORST: Salma Hayek
Hayek’s black one shoulder Gucci gown at the BAFTAs isn’t that bad – however combined with the headdress and bedazzled lizard as her own reptilian Jiminy Cricket, the gown goes from trying to be fashion forward to plain old trying too hard.
BEST: Amy Adams
Adams’s looked elegant in Prada paired with a stand-out brooch by Cartier as she arrived at the BAFTAs. It was stand-out moment for the “Vice” actress who has flown under the radar for most of awards season, and perhaps a preview of things to come at the Academy Awards.
WORST: Heidi Klum
Klum went overboard with the animal print in this pink suit by Robert Rodriguez at the pre-Grammys Spotify Best New Artist event in Los Angeles. The distracting pattern and Klum’s styling is overwhelming for the supermodel, who would have benefitted from sporting only one item of print as an accent piece.
