Oscar Sunday: All the best and worst red carpet looks at the 2016 Academy Awards

It’s officially Oscar Sunday, which means the endless commercials for the show will finally end, OR that my red carpet review is finally here! Yay, let’s get started!

rs_634x1024-160228152919-634-Academy-Awards-Oscars-alicia-vinkander.cm.228 Nominee Alicia Vikander is one of the first stars to arrive and stuns in this CUSTOM Luis Vuitton gown. Normally, yellow doesn’t look quite right on the red carpet, but here: it’s flawless and looks stunning. Her beauty look is also fabulous. But, when does she ever look bad on the red carpet? Never. (And I can vouch for that, from actually seeing her dressed for a red carpet in person.) Maybe that’s why I like it: she’s like a real life Belle from Beauty and the Beast!!

rs_634x1024-160228153704-634-sofia-vergara-2016-oscars-academy-awards-mh-022816 Sofia Vergara has clearly found her signature Marchesa silhouette, but no complaints, because it looks stunning. Well, less so in print– the actual footage looks so fluid and gorgeous. But, Marchesa can do no wrong in my book.

DaisyRidley Daisy Ridley of the latest Star Wars film… Well, I have not seen the film, but her dress is stunning with the color, detail and her cool updo. However, I’m not a big fan of the extra tulle at the bottom or around her middle like a pseudo-peplum.

rs_634x1024-160228154914-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-Priyanka-Chopra I like Priyanka Chopra’s Zuhair Muraid dress, but again, I think that has more to do with the fact of how the famed designer can do no wrong in my opinion.

rs_634x1024-160228155024-634.Olivia-Wilde-Oscars-2016-Academy-Awards I’m not the biggest fan of Olivia Wilde’s Valentino dress.It’s just too much, between the open-neck top, the pleated skirt, the back mini-cape, the hair and the choker. Way too much to look at, and that doesn’t help the overall aesthetic.

rs_634x1024-160228155016-634-Academy-Awards-Oscars-saorise-ronan.cm.228 Saoirse Ronan (Pop quiz! Who can pronounce her name correctly? The Irish pronunciation.) is definitely one of my favorites so far with the glittery green CUSTOM Calvin Klein dress, an homage to Ireland. The dress, hair, makeup and earrings all work together and create a stunning red carpet look.

rs_634x1024-160228160052-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-naomi-watts I really like Naomi Watts’ dress, sparkles and all. Normally, I’m not a fan of multicolored dresses, but this slight purple ombre isn’t taking it to a costume-y level and it works, and looks perfectly tailored.

rs_634x1024-160228160619-634-Academy-Awards-Oscars-olivia-munn.cm.228 Olivia Munn looks perfectly chic in this bright orange Stella McCartney. However, the one-sleeve looks like a sling?

rs_634x1024-160228160745-634.Eddie-Redmayne-2016-Oscars-Academy-Awards eddie-redmayne_hannah-redmayne_gettyimages-512912988 Eddie Redmayne looks adorable in a velvet Alexander McQueen suit. Nothing new here, so I’ll leave you to resume staring at the dapper Dad-to-be, whom I met. (Just felt the need to throw that out there again…)

rs_634x1024-160228161902-634-brie-larson-Academy-Awards-Oscars-cm.228  CcV2eqbWIAAfm0T Wow, Brie Larson looks gorge in royal blue Gucci, with the beaded belt and simple slicked back hair. Wow, stunning.  But, who remembers pre-teen Brie as an attempted pop star?? That’s the real question here.

rs_634x1024-160228161342-634-isla-fisher-2016-oscars-academy-awards-mh-022816 One word to describe Isla Fisher: meh. It’s okay, not superb, not terrible; just eh.

rs_634x1024-160228160907-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-heidi-klum First hot mess dress of the night goes to Heidi Klum. Wow, yikes– this is like a bad prom/bridesmaid dress that no one wanted. The different tulle colors, the big flowers, the awkward cleavage/belly cutout and the vintage puffy sleeve, all together just doesn’t work. Blech.

CcV98YhWEAAbOUU First family photo!! Pregnant Chrissy Teigen poses in her stunning, tailored Marchesa dress with her hubby John Legend.

rs_634x1024-160228162256-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-margot-robbie Margot Robbie stuns in Oscar gold, however, the black purse with a long tassle, doesn’t fit with the color of the dress. But, the dress is gorge, I just feel like I’ve seen it before.

CcV5ZdHWIAAMPQg Nine-year-old Jacob Tremblay is adorable. And look at him posing; so cute! Too Precious. ❤

rs_634x1024-160228163603-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-julianne-moore Love last year’s Best Actress, Julianne Moore, red carpet look. The Chanel dress is gorge for the actress.

cate-blanchett Cate Blanchett’s gown and complete look is gorgeous. Wow, very different from everyone else, but it’s gorgeous: all the details, the color, her simplistic elegant hairstyle. Stunning.

rs_634x1024-160228164255-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-rachel-mcadams CcV8ifcWEAEeAUg THAT TRAIN THOUGH… Representing the incredible film “Spotlight,” making her Oscar Nominee debut is Rachel McAdams who looks stunning in a deep emerald dress with the now infamous Angelina Jolie leg slit, long drop earrings and tightly secured updo.

rs_634x1024-160228164429-634-tina-fey-2016-oscars-academy-awards-mh-022816 Tina Fey stuns in purple. It’s very simplistic, but I’ll forgive since she is just there as a presenter.

rs_634x1024-160228165215-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-lady-gaga Lady Gaga’s gown looks stunning– oh wait– it’s a pantsuit. INSTANTLY MAKES THE LOOK EVEN BETTER. PERFECTION.

rs_634x1024-160228165526-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-emily-blunt Baby bump alert! Love Emily Blunt’s cute pale pink, beaded Prada dress with wavy hairstyle. Gorge.

CcWCe7OWEAAycdd Don’t hate me: but Kate Winslet’s gown looks like a trash bag. A literal garbage bag, and her hair looks unbrushed. Normally, the talented actress looks stunning, but that can’t be said tonight.

rs_634x1024-160228165015-634-jared-leto-2016-oscars-academy-awards-mh-022816 Jared Leto looks so cool with his suit’s red piping and a flower instead of a tie. Epic. Edgy.

Time for the show to start! Got your Oscar ballots ready? Who will take home the golden honor tonight?
