My Oscars Fashion Recap

- Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all -

While there are always favourites to win the Oscars, one thing is always uncertain, who takes home the Oscar for the Best Dress of the evening. This year's fashion was dominated by four colours gold, black, white, and red. Here are my Top 3 and one Disappointment. 


1. Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae wearing an Elli Saab Haute Couture dress was, at least for me, the Wow moment of the evening. It had everything an Oscars dress needs: drama, glamour and some sexiness. I loved how the sheerness on the top balanced out the volume of the bottom part. 

2. Taraji P. Henson

Taraji P Henson's velvet dress by Alberta Ferretti brought some old Hollywood glamour to the red carpet. The cut and sweetheart neckline emphasised her assets elegantly.

Hailee Steinfeld

Like Janelle's Monae's gown, Hailee Steinfeld's Ralph & Russo Haute Couture dress looked like a delicate piece of art. The ruffles in the back were an on trend style element which gave the robe that extra something.

Most Disappointing 

Dakota Johnson

Unfortunately, Dakota Johnson in a gold satin Gucci dress was my least favourite of the evening. While Taraji P Henson embodied the old Hollywood glam perfectly, Dakota Johnson didn't achieve that. Instead of retro glam, her dress reminded me of a nightgown with a waitress apron on top. I also think her makeup and hair look was to reduced for such a glamorous night.
