When she's not starring on Vanderpump Rules, Stassi Schroeder writes regularly about fashion for The Divine Addiction. Here, she weighs in with her picks for best and worst of this year's Oscar fashion.
Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace
The moment she stepped onto the red carpet, my eyes teared up. Yes, I literally got emotional over this dress. And the detachable cape? This was the gown of gowns, the reason I dream about fashion every night of my life. I couldn’t imagine anything more stunning.
Lupita Nyong’o in Prada
I love that Lupita embraces color on the red carpet, and this powdery shade of blue is my new favorite. She looks heavenly, feminine and dreamlike. I also can’t get enough of the sleek headband. I definitely see this being a new trend.
Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab
There is a reason we call her the Queen. I feel like I can’t remember a moment when she didn’t rule the red carpet in some way. This look so effortlessly combines sophistication and glamour. All hail Angelina.
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior
I’ve been waiting all award season for a style icon moment from Lawrence, and to my delight, she delivered! I’ve never seen her look so statuesque and graceful (without the trips and falls). The orange-red gown is showstopping in the most classic way. The dainty gold necklace that falls to her back is everything.
Cate Blanchett in Armani
Cate is always one of my favorite ones to watch for fashion as she is such a risk taker. In my opinion, she is exactly what a movie star is supposed to look like. This nude dress with silver embellishments is just delectable. The earrings and hair scream old Hollywood. Swoon!
Oh those broadway thespians! Those crazy kids! The train wreck that is the cobalt blue pantsuit with the matching cobalt blue hair streak is obvious. So is it weird that I think the black shoes were the worst part?
We get it, you don’t care. You go against the grain. You don’t want to conform. You hate bathing. You love ombre highlights. Whatever.
Messy, tacky, Forever 21. At least she’s pretty.
I realize many people may not agree with this one, but I’m just not feeling this goth vibe. I love a good dark side, but this look seems a bit dull and frumpy.
Is this bad enough to be on the worst dressed list? Maybe not, but I’m bored. The dull color and overly sweet predictable prom/wedding style of the gown is like fashion death to me.
