Let me first say that I didn’t “get” Lupita Nyong‘o’s Calvin Klein dress until I saw the close-up. My god. Those ivory beads?! Slayed. But my top special for the 2015 Academy Awards red carpet was actually Felicity Jones in Alexander McQueen. It was one of few where I lit’rally gasped, and it was just everything I want in an Oscar dress.
Other faves include Kerry Washington, ScarJo (I was back and forth with hers, then realized I really liked it—very striking), Zendaya (that was a first for me), LOVED Solange‘s Vanity Fair after party look (not so much her red Oscar gown—it looked like it was a great dress—by Christian Siriano—but not right for her), Emma Stone in Elie Saab = slayage (love her as a redhead), Marion Cotillard can do whatever she wants (so I shan’t speak a word against her Vanity Fair dress). Let’s ALSO discuss Jessica Chastain who, without showing a lot of skin, was oooozing sexy sexiness at the Vanity Fair party. I also liked her Oscar dress (Givenchy Couture), but I will never recover from the flawlessness of those red locks. LOOK AT THEM! She is insane. But not as insane as Rita Ora, who basically went naked (okay not really, but kind of) to the after-party. Lady Gaga, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Zoe Saldana also looked great. Ahhh, so much good stuff, but—again—Felicity Jones slayed all for me.
Your thoughts??? That Rita Ora dress though! Oh, and I nabbed a super-cute pic of Beyoncé and Solange. Peep the gallery for more!
