If there’s one thing I literally do not care a smidgeon about, it’s the Oscar show. Did I used to have some iota of care for it? Sure. I used to watched 20, 30 or even an hour of the latter half of the show. But I do enjoy fashion even when it’s the kind I’ll never have occasion to wear. Looking through some of the fashion of the night makes me wonder if designers and the people who wear them have lost their minds, but hey, let’s look at some of the Oscar fashion looks of 2022. Mainly because it’s Monday and the weekend was meh.COLORFUL & PRETTY RED CARPET OSCAR 2022 FASHION #FASHION #REDCARPETFASHION #OSCARS #OSCARSFASHION #OSCARS2022 #JESSICACHASTAIN #LILYJAMES #SOFIACARSON #ZENDAYA Click To Tweet
A couple weeks ago, we did look at some of the AMAs fashion. So only seems fair to look at some of the looks from the night Hollywood elite loves. Honestly in my first run through, I see next to nothing I really like. But then, that’s not surprising. I rarely see things on the red carpet that I die over. Plus when the dudes tend to outshine the ladies, that’s bad. Nonetheless, I still find it weirdly fun to scroll through the highs (and lows) on the fashion red carpet. Let’s take a look at some of the looks together – and you let me know, what are you loving?

THE FEMININE FASHIONISTA
The ladies who take a softer or at least more feminine (in the design) approach to their fashion pick. Let’s take a look.
Some of the accounts I saw gushed over Lily James ensemble and while I can appreciate its soft tones and lace taking the more feminine look (this is never a bad look in my book), I just don’t care for the design of the dress. It’s just… not pretty in my view. There is one or two shout-outs for the princess style gown of Saniyya Sidney. Again, like Collins, I can appreciate the prettier and lighter approach to fashion, but the fabric? I’m not wowed by – the bottom of the dress isn’t my thing. TONS of videos give Jessica Chastain a best dressed thumbs up. Love the pretty and sparkly skirt. Detest the rest of the design. I don’t love how surprisingly sheer the top is, but I actually really like Sofia Carson’s look. One I see no one giving it props. It is black, but the tulle and the one shoulder look helps it seem softer and I love the princess style of the design.
Going more feminine also is Zoë Kravitz in a simple pink dress with a bow. I like this dress, but don’t love how they style Zoë in it. I think something with how they put her hair with this dress doesn’t fit… and I’m not sure what else. But it just doesn’t feel like it’s up to its potential. Finally many gushed over Mila Kunis too. The kind of “goddess” style is pretty but the color? Eh. Not my thing. I saw a few sort of neutral tones and unless it’s white (and you have the skin tone to pull it off and I say this as someone who NEVER could), I always cringe at the kind of skin tone dresses!
As a final note, I also thought, while ALSO colorful, Jessica Serfaty sported a pretty and more feminine look too.
THE EDGY FASHONISTA
A bit edgier, these ladies opted for darker vibes and of course, sequins too!
Maddie Ziegler went for a kind of girl vibe with a voluminous black number, but because it’s black, I decided to put it in this category. I have a love-hate relationship with the look Penelope Cruz goes with. It’s simple and I do like the button details as well as the kind of a-line of the skirt, but I’m not sure how well I love the bow on the neck. Everyone RAVED about Zendaya which makes me think I’m weird. I just don’t “see” it. She’s one of the better dressed on the red carpet and again, I also think it’s elegant and elevates a look to do a pretty updo, but I just don’t see the OHMYGOSH factor here. Like Lily James (above), there’s elements of Lupita Nyong’o’s look I like. I think the skirt is REALLY fun and playful, and the gold makes her dress look rich and eye-catching, but I don’t love the circle/texture pattern in the gown. Going simple with her straight line dress, Rachel Zegler has a simple gown with some pretty sparkles here and there! Do we love or hate this look?
Also opting for edgier were stars like Vanessa Hudgens.
THE POP OF COLOR FASHIONISTA
Some stars went BOLD and colorful in what seemed a popular shade last night!
Kirsten Dunst goes fun but bold in her strapless, textured gown. She keeps things simple with some earrings and a chic updo. Marlee Matlin does simple with her red dress and in a kind of statement piece, she wears a chunky blue necklace. Keeping it simple also (good choice when you opt for the bold color!) is Jennifer Garner in her simple off-the-shoulder number. Similarly, Amy Forsyth takes the playful route in her dress too with the bold cascades and texture. I think I like Dunsts’ better, but it’s the same kind of bold statement dress!
*As an afterthought, I also did like some of the ladies after-party options better. But also, who needs an AFTER PARTY change!? This to say NOTHING of the pre-parties. Like golly. The idea of this whole affair is just out of hand.
Ok, the drill goes the same: which of the looks do you love? Did I miss any you thought were AWESOME? What about the looks you loathed? Which ones did you think were BIG time misses? Let’s chat all the things – comment all the comments below!
