And the first Oscars have been handed out! Mostly a good excuse to have a red carpet, let’s see who’s already out ahead in the awards season fashion race.

I like the sum of this more than the parts. The embroidery is beautiful, the crop top and skirt are silly, but the overall vibe is very J. Law, and better than what Dior has done to her the last few years.

This is both very Greta and very The Row (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s fashion house). It also looks like Greta is the high priestess of a Princess Leia inspired cult.

Expect to see Saoirse a lot this award season– this would be much better without the giant X-marks-the-boobs or the just-out-of-the-shower hair.

I am not a Vuitton fan, especially of late, but this is solid for the outgoing Best Actress.
Sarah Paulson in Miu MiuEmbed from Getty Images
Love this, would have chopped off the see through sleeves though. It’s very Sarah, who tends to pick dramatic looks with a Victorian feel.
Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueenEmbed from Getty Images
LOVE a redhead in red! This is glorious and dramatic on her.
Allison Williams in Brandon MaxwellEmbed from Getty Images
I generally am a big fan of Allison’s style- she wears a lot of my favorites like Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, and Schiaparelli. Don’t love this though- Brandon Maxwell got his big break styling and designing for Lady Gaga, and I don’t think Allison can pull off even Gaga-lite levels of drama. It’s all a little too Goth Barbie for me.

This is really beautiful and interesting, but what on earth has she done with her hair!? Think of how much lovelier that would be with her hair from the Thor premiere in October?Embed from Getty Images
Kristen Wiig in Galvan LondonEmbed from Getty Images
She has very unique taste that often comes off as kooky. I like this velvet 70’s vibe though.
Carey Mulligan in Giambattista ValliEmbed from Getty Images
Great color, but I am over bodices that cut women in in weird places and I am on the way to being over peplum.
Zoe Kazan in PradaEmbed from Getty Images
Do not like this too-twee nightie. I hope that she injects some edge into her fashion choices and awards season progresses.
Diane Kruger in GivenchyEmbed from Getty Images
This is…fine. She apparently just won a German Oscar, so I look forward to seeing her on a lot of red carpets. Her taste is always interesting, whether she hits the mark or not.

Lovely, but would loose the black belt.
