Oscars 2019: In Which Emma Stone Channels a Stroopwafel

Some of our “Best Supporting Actress” nominees looked like food. Others fared slightly better.

I am rather pleasantly surprised by this glittery, chocolate brown, stroopwafel of a dress! Louis Vuitton has done so much worse by her, that this is frankly refreshing. Do I love it? No. But it’s completely serviceable, an interesting color and shape, and doesn’t look like it was made in the dark. Although now I am fully craving a stroopwaffle.

Rain slicker is an interesting aesthetic for Oscars night, no? I am starting to think that Rachel just might not have great taste – her whole awards season run has been one long misfire, capped off by this glaringly bad Givenchy. The most frustrating thing is that there’s the germ of a good dress in there! The bottom half is really lovely and red is a great color on her, but the cheap ass rain coat up top kills it.

Just as I am largely disenchanted with all black on the red carpet, all white similarly fails to hold my attention span. I mean, obviously, Regina King looks stunning – she’s just innately fabulous. But I cant help seeing a well wrapped bed sheet instead of an interesting gown.

Way to end on a high note! Marina looks absolutely stunning in this, and while I don’t love the corset-like bodice, that incredible skirt more than makes up for it. She has had a spottier awards season run than co-star Yalitza, but she easily wins this last match up in my eyes.

This is totally fine but largely forgettable. Other than the overly accentuated cups on the bodice (seriously, why though?) there’s nothing I will remember about this tomorrow.
