The Colors Of The Rainbow Beam Over The 2012 Oscars Red Carpet

Think of a color. Think of an obscure shade, or even a nondescript one. It was probably represented on the Oscars 2012 red carpet. Paler, more interesting shades like Sarah Hyland‘s rhubarb colored Alberta Feretti dress or Berenice Bejo‘s lovely mint green gown by Elie Saab. There will definitely be some debates about Penelope Cruz’s iceberg custom Giorgio Armani organza gown which in itself was old-school Hollywood glamor, but the color on her wasn’t the best choice.

The ones we’ve really fallen in love with are Viola Davis‘ and Michelle Williams’ emerald Vera Wang and tangerine Louis Vuitton, respectively. Best dressed all the way. Natalie Portman made us sit up and cheer for her red Dior Haute Couture dress from Rare Vintage, which is a 1954 collection. Emma Stone also never disappoints. She wore one of her favorite red carpet designers, Giambattista Valli, choosing a a stunning raspberry-colored number this time. If you’re in the mood to look at the rest of the rainbow — including Missi Pyle‘s blue Valentina Delfino made from “cruely-free silkworms” — then feel free to flip through our gallery below. Don’t forget to tell us what you think.

Oscars Worst Dressed: Whose Red Carpet Risks Didn’t Pay Off?

We almost didn’t want to write this one, people. Because honestly, for the first time in as long as we can remember, there were no completely egregious fails on the Oscars red carpet tonight. No gowns made out of garbage bags, no inappropriate body parts hanging out, no missing undergarments. So what follows is a list of the people whose outfits were less than than the spectacular fashions we’ve come to expect from their kind. We think we might be struck down on our very couch for daring to criticize Meryl Streep, but that gold material looks more suited for a downtown cabaret backdrop. And Melissa McCarthy, you know we love you. But we wish you would dress to show off your curves, not drape them in bags. Also, it’s really hard for men to make this list, but we’re giving an honorary mention to Bradley Cooper and his silly mustache. You are not a Williamsburg hipster form 2010, you are the Sexiest Man Alive. Now please shave.

Of course, this is just our humble opinion. Peruse the gallery below and defend or attack as you please in the comments below!
