Tonight, the stars of the silver screen will put on gorgeous gowns and elegant tuxes for the 2014 Oscars. Last night, though, they looked like a bunch of riff raff at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards. The Oscars might be the epitome of Hollywood glamour, but the Independent Spirit Awards ceremony takes place on a beach and celebrates the hipsters of the film industry. Here are the five worst-dressed celebrities from last night’s low key awards show.
It’s hard to know what stars should wear to the Independent Spirit Awards. They’re meant to be fun and low-key. They’re also meant to honor independent films and creativity. So, naturally, you shouldn’t show up wearing an over-the-top ball gown. However, you also shouldn’t show up anywhere wearing a dress that doesn’t look finished or a romper that’s literally covered in bugs.
Blue Jasmine star and Oscar hopeful Sally Hawkins arrived in a sheer, but buttoned up dress that was either paying homage to a sad lady’s fan from the 19th century or Hawkins’s own need for attention. And though it might seem like sacrilege to put Lupita Nyong’o on a worst dressed list, no one can deny that her reptilian romper made her simultaneously look like a lizard queen and a kindergartener.
Here’s hoping these stars clean up their act tonight and give us the glamour at the 2014 Oscars.
