Best Dressed At The 2018 Oscars

The 90th Oscars have finally come and gone and surprisingly, I enjoyed them. If you follow me, then you have most likely heard me whine about the Oscars being boring but it wasn’t so terrible this year, besides the predictable wins. Jimmy Kimmell was a decent host and I enjoyed him. There were a lot of montages and a lot of filler activities (surprising people at a nearby theater).

My favorite moment was the montage about diversity and inclusion and Kumail Nanjiani had the best quote:

”Some of my favorite movies are movies by straight white dudes, about straight white dudes. Now straight white dudes can watch movies starring me, and you relate to that. It’s not that hard. I’ve done it my whole life.” Loved the sign language during the speech for The Silent Child win and Frances McDormand shut it down with her passionate speech to include a diversity rider. The Best Song nominees didn’t bring their A-game in the live performances and Shape of Water took home best pic.

That was the summary of the show, no big shakeups and it was PC for the most part, To the fun part, here are some of the looks that I thought were best:

Jennifer Lawrence sparkled in a metallic Dior gown. The gold elements from the design popped as Lawrence presented the award for best actor to Gary Oldman with Jodie Foster. 

I am a fan of Jennifer Lawrence on the red carpet and this was no exception

Sandra Bullock made her return to the Oscars red carpet in an ombré Louis Vuitton black and gold dress that paired well with her matching clutch. The halter neckline, pin-straight hair, and smokey eye makeup completed her look. 

Looking like Gal Gadot’s sister, Sandra Bullock looked amazing. 53 looks good on her!

Never one to disappoint with her red carpet looks, Lupita Nyong’o arrived to the Oscars in a gown fit for a Wakandan queen. The “Black Panther” star wore a gold Atelier Versace dress and had gold threaded through her hair. 

Looking like the award herself. Lupita owned the carpet, looking like a vision.

Margot Robbie was white hot in a Chanel Haute Couture gown with beaded off-the-shoulder straps connecting at the bodice. 

A simple white dress but I thought it looked good on Margot Robbie

Jennifer Garner, who introduced Eddie Vedder for the in memoriam segment of the Oscars, dazzled in a royal blue cobalt Atelier Versace gown with a sweeping train. 

I could not believe this was Jennifer Garner. Good on her.

“Lady Bird” director Greta Gerwig was a ray of sunshine in a Rodarte floor-length dress. She paired the look with a pale blue clutch. 

Can’t explain it but I really liked Greta Gerwig’s dress on her.

Fellow “Get Out” star Betty Gabriel also wore a unique design to the Oscars in a Tony Ward creation with a plunging neckline, floral elements, and a sheer train.
