Oscars 2018: Pretty in Pink (and Purple)

From dusty rose to Barbie pink…

Viola Davis in Michael Kors

This is the loudest of the bunch and very in line with what she usually wears. Usually I love her bold ,colorful style, but this color is a tad too harsh and when she walked, you could tell she wasn’t comfortable in it.

This was a big night for Ashley. This dress is about as simple as it gets, but she looks good.

Salma, Salma, Salma. As predicted she wore Gucci. This is better than her usual, but it’s still too much look. I would kill to see her in something a little more simple and understated just for once. I could have been on board with the dress itself, but Gucci’s maximalist approach apparently demanded a capelet of diamonds, which takes this look too far into campy territory for me.

This feels VERY similar to Saoirse’s dress, so I’m thankful that she punched it up with the hair art and jewels. In the battle of the pale punk columns, I think I have to go with Saoirse’s for more streamlined execution – but I honestly don’t like either.

This is undeniably lovely, but definitely washes her out. Thank god for the bright lip.

Gina Rodriguez in Zuhair Murad

A lot of people swooned over this. I am a bit more reserved. I love Zuhair Murad and 75% of this dress works beautifully. But I have never like hip fans – they always feel a bit 16th century to me. However, I am proud to have predicted her predilection for deep V necks!

This is probably my favorite of the bunch. The pale pink works with her coloring and the gorgeous floral detailing is beautiful and interesting. For her return to the red carpet, she chose well and brought major glamour.
