In a sea of dreamy, couture gowns, last night’s 84th Academy Awards red carpet was lacking for many poor wardrobe choices.  Take a look at some of our favorite, worst, and controversial dresses.

Best Dressed:

1.  Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton–the Best Actress nominee finally gave us the glam moment we’ve been craving.  She did not disappoint in this mouth watering strapless blood orange custom frock decorated with a 30-carat Fred Leighton diamond choker.

2.  Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad–JLo gave in to her curves by showcasing her figure in this stunning nude and white art deco-inspired stripes and long sleeves.  It looked as good going as it did coming.

3.  Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford–Only this Academy Award winner could hit the red carpet in a cape.  The white gown’s classic clean lines are a signature of Paltrow’s effortless style.

4.  Kristin Wiig in J. Mendel–The first time nominee’s nude colored gown with its cascading chiffon and simple sweetheart neckline were a perfect balance for Wiig’s personality.  Neil Lane jewels including an emerald cocktail ring provided just enough color.

5.  Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen–The Help star met her first trip to the Oscars with an appropriately ornate mermaid gown embellished with hand-sewn gold beading and easy hair.

Worst Dressed:

 

1.  Shailene Woodley in Valentine–Once again, the supporting star of The Descendants arrived to the Oscars looking dowdy and without effort.  But shame on Valentino for letting this leave the runway where it should have stayed.

2.  Penelope Ann Miller in Badgley Mischka–The Artist ensemble member wasted her red carpet appearance on this pink beaded halter and left home with too little Spanx.  This gown was far too juvenile and unstructured for a seasoned actress who’s been to this party before.

3.  Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli–Shame on Stone’s stylist for not remembering Nicole Kidman’s identical looking Balenciaga from the 2007 Academy Awards.  This doppelganger’s neck bow nearly swallowed up the slim star.

The Oscars Most Controversial Dress:

 

Berenice Bejo in Elie Saab–We die for this minty pastel beaded concoction expertly worn by the supporting actress nominee.  This is par for the course for a French woman who understands fashion risk taking.  This will undoubtedly end up on both best and worst dressed lists worldwide.
