85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

5. Kerry Washington

Ambika:+ 4 “I’m all for Kerry’s custom Miu Miu. Love the bodice embellishment with the vibrant coral of the skirt! And the pops of color from her Prada clutch and pumps complemented the gown.”

Maud Deitch: +3 “Kerry’s bright, whimsical Miu Miu and her center part are two things we didn’t see a lot of at the Oscars. I’m impressed with the risks she took all season.”

Breanne L. Heldman: +1 “She can do no wrong when it comes to styling — her hair and makeup are forever flawless. But this Miu Miu dress felt a little cluttered on the top and wrinkled on the bottom.”

Nikki Ogunnaike: +3 “It was Kerry’s second time wearing Miu Miu on the red carpet and she knocked it out of the park. I love the way the coral pops against her skin and the beading adds a bit of oomph.”

6. Amanda Seyfried

Ambika: +3.5 “I’m a sucker for McQueen so this soft, delicate gown by the brand gets my vote. Love the silver embroidery! She would’ve scored higher if her hair hadn’t looked so dated and matronly.”

Maud Deitch: +4 “Amanda looks like an intergalactic goddess in her Alexander McQueen. It’s absolutely stunning on her, such a great fit and an unusual color.” 

Breanne L. Heldman: –2 “Another case of a major couture gown totally not fitting. Amanda is just too good for this mess of a dress. And the color put me to sleep.”

Nikki Ogunnaike: +2 “While others may think the color washed her out, I liked it! She called it ‘the one from the beginning’ and I think she made a solid choice.”

7. Anne Hathaway

Ambika: +2.5 “I asbsolutely adored her hair and makeup, but her Prada gown was so underwhelming. The fit was completely wonky around the stomach.”

Maud Deitch:+3 “Fantastic hair. She’s conjuring Princess Diana’s iconic cut with her long side swept bangs, and I just love it.”

Breanne L. Heldman: -5 ” The Prada dress looked like a cheap dress a seventh grader would wear to a school dance. With those unfortunate darts, she resembled a fembot about to shoot anyone who stood in the path of her statuette. Awfulness all around.”

Nikki Ogunnaike: 0 “Not her finest look — those darts are rather unfortunate. But I do like the pink color.”
