The annual Academy Awards are a highly anticipated event, especially when it comes to red carpet fashion. Year after year celebrities make their grand entrance and sometimes there are hits that go down in fashion history, but there are also misses that fail to hit the mark. Here are some of this year’s great and… not so great red carpet fashion moments. Hint: Pink definitely prevailed!

Laura Dern: HIT

Making a statement in Giorgio Armani, Laura Dern rocked her look! The combination of this black and pink gown was so elegant on the carpet. The black embellished bodice with floating tassels really made the silhouette of this dress so flattering on Laura. This was a home run.

Regina King: HIT

Va Va Voom! This Versace number pulled out all the stops. Head to toe in pink, Regina King knew exactly how to work the cameras with this sparkling asymmetrical dress. The epic train made the it stand out amongst the rest!

Salma Hayek: HIT

Salma looked like a Latina goddess in this flowing ivory Gucci gown. The accessories, which included the Feuilles de Laurier necklace that she wore as a headpiece, made this simple and elegant look shine!

Margot Robbie: HIT

This vintage strapless Chanel dress featured a modern twist with chiffon statement sleeves that flowed gracefully as Margot moved. Navy always looks rich and so did Margot!

Rooney Mara: HIT

This gothic lace Alexander McQueen gown channelled feminine with an edge. The sleek pulled back bun combined with the unique cut out shapes of the bodice made a modern statement that is hard to forget.   

Kristen Wiig: MISS

Don’t really know what happened here. It was ruffles gone wild! The excessive amount of fabric swamped the comedian in this Valentino disaster.

Penelope Cruz: MISS

Penelope is knows for her glamorous award looks, but this year was an exception. This high-low Chanel dress with a pearl belt was far from what we expected. The halter neckline and dropped waist looked like we had seen it before. Unfortunately, it was not a current look that did not wow the crowd.

Billie Eilish: MISS

Chanel gone wrong. What was the Grammy award-winning singer thinking? Billie is used to wearing oversized clothing, but this white tweed suit paired with long black nails was a look that we just could not get on board with…

These were some of the award season’s best and worst looks. We can’t wait until next year’s red carpet fashion!
