3/05/2014 Unknown 0 Comments

Time to recap the Oscars red carpet looks! Find out our best and worst picks and this time we also get a male perspective on the Oscars fashion from image consultant Adrian from Indianapolis! Let's recap!

Best Dressed Women

Lupita Nyong'o:

Best Dressed: Hands down Lupita Nyong'o gets this, and it should be no surprise. How gorgeous was Best Supporting Actress winner in this light blue pleated gown by Prada? She wore it so well and looked like a classic beauty. Love it! So proud of her and her accomplishment!

I love the drama created by the full skirt of the gown.

Charlize Theron:

Charlize was my pick for best dressed at the Oscars last year. This year she is equally stunning, this time in a black Dior gown (she wears Dior so well). Love the illusion straps.

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence (who tripped and fell again this year, but fortunately on the red carpet this time and not during the show) looked amazing in a red Dior gown. I guess Charlize and Jennifer can't go wrong in Dior.

Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington looked beautiful in a Jason Wu gown, showing off her baby bump. Loved the color on her and the high slit showing some leg.

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

These two always make a statement on the red carpet. Absolutely loved Angelina's gown.

Kate Hudson 

Lastly Kate Hudson looked amazing in this structured and perfectly fit Atelier Versace gown with matching cape. The plunge neckline is perfect and I love the details. She wore it well.

Best Dressed Men

For the best dressed men on the red carpet, we got Adrian's input to get a male's perspective. Here are his picks:

Michael B. Jordan:

Michael kept it clean in all black, but it was all about the details... the structure of the lapel, the collar pin with chain and the shoes:


Some may have seen Pharrell on the red carpet and thought "what was he thinking?" at first look, but Adrian offers a great take on this look, from a male perspective:

Adrian: "Honestly this is classic Pharell. Always putting a modern, edgy twist on a classic garment tailored to perfection. His wife complements his look very well. This could definitely be a summer look I could see becoming very popular."

Agreed. He always dares to be different, and in true Pharrell fashion, he rocked his infamous hat for his performance of "Happy."

This hat always makes me want Arby's. Just saying lol.

Kevin Spacey:

Kevin wore a blue Burberry tuxedo with a bow tie and featuring a black lapel detail.

Will Smith (with Jada Pinkett Smith):

Will and Jada came looking like an elegant couple as always. Loved the cut of Jada's gown.

Leonardo DiCaprio: 

Although he didn't win his Oscar, Leo was a winner on the red carpet in this tux with bow tie.

Jaime Foxx

Jaimie looked dapper in his tux and brought along his daughter.

Worst Dressed

It happens every year... unfortunately everyone can't be a winner on the red carpet. There were a few that stood out to me as complete fails.

Anna Kendrick:

I can't find one thing I like about this dress... too much going on here.

Lady Gaga

I feel like she somewhat tried to fit in on the Oscars red carpet, but this scarf and high platform shoes ruined it for me.

Julia Roberts

We love you Julia, but the lace detailed black gown just didn't work this time.

Jessica Biel

I feel like she can do so much better than this. The Chanel dress itself is beautiful, but the color washed her out and I would love to see her in something more exciting.

That's our rundown of looks on the red carpet, let us know your thoughts!
