Oscars Red Carpet: The 8 Best-Dressed Ladies In The House

|

So, it wasn’t the most surprising of Oscar ceremonies. That’s why we have to thank the women who made things interesting with their sartorial choices — all that color, all those sequins and pleats, all those perfect silhouettes served to liven up the self-congratulatory goings on at the Kodak Theatre. Gwyneth Paltrow swooped in wearing a cape, guys. And Angelina Jolie’s slinky Versace made her actually act silly in public, which is a virtue we didn’t know dresses possessed. Viola Davis’ Vera Wang should make actual emeralds feel dull by comparison. And we don’t even know what the color of Michelle Williams’ gown is, it’s just perfect.

Our next door neighbor, a former fashion editor, has been texting us all night with the exact opposite opinions on many of these looks — she says Angie’s a mess, and Melissa Leo (whom we put in the worst-dressed list) is great — so we’re expecting more debate from you guys on this too. Flip through our top eight below and then tell us what you think. Who did we miss? Who doesn’t deserve our praise? Sound off in the comments!
