Oscars 2018: Mixed Results for Ladies in Blue

From the highs of Jennifer and Nicole’s royal blues to the lows of whatever the hell awful color Emily Blunt was wearing…

I keep going back and forth on this one. I adore the color and the unique texture. And the bow is basically something only Nicole could pull off. But the “rabbit ears” bust throws me. If it were a bit less Jessica Rabbit I think I would be 100% on board. As it stands…I’m at 92%.

I love, love, love Jennifer Garner and want the best for her and hated that she married Ben Affleck who’s clearly a real dick and it thrills me that she looks so radiant here and this is definitely not a run on sentence.

This is absolutely one of my least favorite looks from Sunday night. The color is anemic and musty and the Swiss dots and lace harness are far too twee.

Holy cow…that’s a lot of cleavage. I think I need 10% less from her. The rest of the dress is really lovely, but her cup size plus that deep of a V-neck steers this into cartoonish territory.

And speaking of too much of a V-neck, this gown is a fantastic color and the detailing is so interesting, but it’s completely derailed by the two sides of the top running away from each other as fast as they can.

Helen Mirren playing Vanna White with a jet ski was easily one the highlights of a mostly dull telecast. She looks stellar as always, although I would argue that her neckline is fighting with her $3.8 MILLION IN SAPPHIRES. Wear a v-neck, let the jewels shine!

Mirai! She landed the triple axel in Pyeonchang – did she stick the landing on the red carpet?! Basically, yes! This is very pretty, if a tad “Elsa” (an apt comparison). I do wish she’d fully lined it – in certain shots the visible slip coming only to the knee really ruins the flow of the dress.
