Now that we’ve witnessed the Red Carpet struts, the tear-filled and hilarious acceptance speeches and lifetime achievement dedications, I think it’s safe to give out Vox‘s own version of Oscars for tonight’s best-dressed. And the winners are:
Best Tuxedo: I might be biased, but I have to give it to Robert Downey Jr. His black-on-black tuxedo with the glittery silver tie was dapper and refined. Way to stray away from the classic-tuxedo vortex and dive into something totally different that we can all appreciate. And this might be because of his accent, but I have to give an honorable mention to Jean Dujardin. Congrats for winning Best Actor for The Artist, monsieur!
Most Breathtaking Gown: Hands-down, it’s Natalie Portman. The strapless red gown she wore to present the award for best actor is absolutely stunning, and I’d expect no less from her. She’s one of the few actresses whose style is so representative and consistent of her personality. I also loved how when she entered the stage, Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” roared over the speakers.
Sexiest Gown: Angelina Jolie, you temptress. The long black gown was beautiful on her, and the long slit up the right side showed just enough leg – but I think we have her pose to attribute to that. She’s always elegant, even with those sorry toothpicks she calls “arms.”
Best Game-Changing Look: Rooney Mara resembles Old Hollywood, but that Givenchy gown still screams modern couture. As I said before, not a hair out of place. She’s poised and perfect.
Best at the Show: As I write this, Meryl Streep is accepting her award for Best Actress. She did the best, most graceful depiction of Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, and she’s regal in that bold dress. Her hair is perfect; her earrings match, but they aren’t too matchy-matchy; the shape and cut of the dress screams “Meryl Streep”; and, might I say, what a phenomenal acceptance speech.
Congrats to the cast and crew of The Artist for winning Best Picture. Hope you’ve enjoyed our live fashion coverage of one of the savviest, most sophisticated nights in annual award shows. Cheers to a great year in film, everyone!
