Oscars 2019: Olivia Colman leads the “Best Actresses”

I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this years “host-less” Oscars! Opening with a performance by Queen was a brilliant move, and following it up with Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and Maya Rudolph kept the energy going. Without a host, the ceremony felt brisk and even clocked in at under 3.5 hours.

And best of all, most of the wins demonstrated that the Academy is looking forward, diversifying, and finally embracing women and people of color. Spike Lee FINALLY took home an Oscar for Adapted Screenplay; Hannah Beachler and Ruth Carter became the first women of color to take home the prizes for Set and Costume design respectively; and three of the four Best Actor/Actress winners were people of color! Progress!

Also…there was this:

Moral of the story: no host, no problem! And now, some gowns!

After an exhaustive look through the couture and ready to wear collections from 2018 and 2019, I feel prepared to style this years “Best Actress” nominees.

I love a redhead in red. But the construction here, like with many of Miuccia Prada’s creations, feels sloppy. Scroll to the right and take a look at the belt – why is it so long!? Why was the solution to tuck it in like the rope belt on the cargo shorts of a frat boy?

Cardi B! I don’t even know where to begin! How about with her history making win as the first solo female rapper to take home the prize for best rap album. Or her delightfully giddy and sweet acceptance speech. Or her killer performance. But for me, it begins and ends with this enormous (literally and metaphorically) statement piece from Mugler’s 1995 collection. Apparently it hasn’t been worn since it debuted in the mid-90’s and with Lady Gaga sticking to her new, more traditional Oscar nominee wardrobe, I can’t think of anyone better to pull off an utterly delightful, completely bonkers look like this.
