My favorite night of the year happened last night. The Academy Awards, otherwise known as The Oscars. You might remember from this blog post about the Golden Globes that red carpet arrivals and award ceremonies are like the Super Bowl for fashion bloggers. With that, let’s discuss the Best and Worst Dressed of the 2017 Oscars!

Now, let me preempt this with the following. My opinions are only that. It’s me watching the red carpet arrivals, the Academy Awards, researching online, conferring with a few friends via text and social media and then coming up with this list. This has absolutely nothing to do with talent of the actor, their work or any of their other fashion choices. It simply is a reflection of my thoughts about their fashion choice last night.

I could tell early that gold and white were the colors of the night. Both colors look spectacular set against the red carpet and provide a neutral palette. I separated my selections into three categories: Best Dressed, I Can’t Decide and Worst Dressed. The ‘I Can’t Decide’ category is because I’m on the fence about these dresses. So I would love your input. Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.

At the bottom, I have curated some beautiful dresses that anyone can wear to have their own red carpet moment. Most of them cost far less than anything you saw last night.

Which one would you wear?  xoxo – Tanya

P.S.  How about that dramatic ending to the Academy Awards with the wrong announcement for Best Picture?

Best Dressed

Best Dressed at the 2017 Oscars on

Best Dressed contenders at the 2017 Academy Awards. I think all these dresses were absolutely stunning on the red carpet. I like that two of them took a chance on length and embellishment.

Viola Davis at the 2017 Oscars

Best Dressed: Viola Davis in this beautiful red Armani Prive. It fits her like a glove. Added bonus: She WON!

I Can’t Decide

I can't decided what list these go on for the 2017 Oscars on

I don’t love them or hate them. They are just meh, blah and in the middle.

Emma Stone at the 2017 Oscars I Can’t Decide winner: Emma Stone in Givenchy. I like her better in a bold color. Just not crazy about this look. She’s going for vanilla when she should try for peanut butter chocolate chip (you get the picture). Added bonus: She WON!

Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed at the 2017 Oscars on

Worst dressed contenders. I mean, what were they thinking? I sort of like Haley Berry’s dress but what is going on with that wig? And those mustard colored dresses. Why would anyone want to look like a condiment?

Scarlett Johansson at one the Worst Dressed at the 2017 Oscars

Worst Dressed winner: Scarlett Johansson in Alaia. Wrong colors, too much fabric and its see through. The belt doesn’t help. It’s so unflattering. She does have beautiful skin, I’ll give her that. But that hair…
