Vanity Fair Oscar Party - Part 3

Keep it moving, people!

Okay, our dinner has arrived and we are currently scarfing down takeout while throwing up posts (and that was an unintentional pun which we will not edit because the imagery is inadvertently colorful) because we are COMMITTED FASHION BLOGGERS and last night was like the Superbowl of fashion. We will not rest until we have exhausted the possibilities. Or at least get this and one more post about the boys up. Then we sleep the sleep of bloggers and get to the Elton John party tomorrow. Sound like a plan? Alrighty then! Let's rip these clothes!

Adrianna Costa

Enh. Pretty. Standard. On any other occasion it could even be called "spectacular," but on Oscar night, such a dress fades into the background. It's Big Girl time on the red carpet and Oscar don't have no room for amateurs, girl.

Anna Kendrick in Notte by Marchesa

She looks like a box of assorted chocolates.

Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg

Oh, come ON, Diane. We don't like to sling the "You're getting a little old for..." but HONEY, you're getting a little old for the inadvertent strap slip. Sure, it might be unintentional, but this is not a woman who doesn't pay attention to the clothes on her back, especially when she's getting her picture taken. Besides, we also hate the marmosets clinging to her upper arms, the jewelry, and the dress itself. So basically, DVF gets an F. Shocking.

Brooklyn Decker in Joi Cioci

Boobslyn Racker is more like it.

Camila Alves (in Zuhair Murad Spring 2011 Couture) and Matthew McConaughey

We actually did tiny gay gasps when we saw this. We admitted that we didn't actually love it, and we're sick to death of the black lace - seriously, that red carpet looked like a giant mantilla at points - but damn if it doesn't bring the drama. We really can't criticize it. She's working the shit out of it. His tux is fine but he skeeves us so hard it's not even funny.

Dianna Agron in Salvatore Ferragamo

Yikes. Honey, we don't want to alarm you but, whoever dressed you? Hates you. The length doesn't flatter her and her waist disappeared. Hair's kind of cute but the makeup looks heavy. So apparently, you can still trust your hair gay and fire your makeup and stylist gays for being bitches.

Donald Trump and Melania Trump

Standard trophy wife attire.

Eli Roth

He's fine.

Gabrielle Union

We love it. Sure, it's in many respects a typical Hollywood goddess gown, but we have a three-pronged rebuttal:

1) The color, which is lovely and exciting.
2) The asymetrical shoulders, which give it a lot of interest.
3) She's a stone cold fox, so shut up.

Georgina Chapman

What a ridiculous dress. At least she puts her money where her mouth is and wears the same silly folded napkins she designs for Marchesa.

Jamie Foxx

Well, the scarf looks stupid. We know it was chilly in LA last night, but he could have whipped it off for the photographers. The suit's fine; the hem not so much.

Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington (in Valentino Fall 2009 Couture)

His jacket is too tight (as always) and her dress is lovely but my GOD are we tired of looking at variations of it.

Jessica Szohr

Jessica Szohr's vagina is trapped in a cage, you guys.

Kate Beckinsale in Julien MacDonald

Even if you hate the gown or hate the actress, you have to admit that girl is WORKING that shit, old Hollywood-style. A couple more seconds and she's going to start voguing. As it so happens, we like the dress too.

Kerry Washington in Escada

She looks good. It's standard in a lot of ways and we don't love her hair like that, but we can't really criticize it.

Leslie Mann

Poor thing had her dress compared to Anne Hathaway's all night, we'd bet.

Lynn Collins

We like a print, but that's like a pinata at a baby shower print. We can't.

Marisa Tomei

We're not sure if we love it but it's a hell of a sight better than the Charles James gown she wore to the show.

Naomi Watts in Zac Posen Spring 2011

This dress is vaguely unsettling.

And unflattering.

Richard Perry and Jane Fonda

Man, you've really got to give it to the old gal. She looks great.

Rashida Jones in Valentino Pre-Fall 2011


Rita Wilson

This woman is a danger to herself and others.

Selena Gomez (in Dolce & Gabbana) and Justin Bieber

She looks good, but her lipstick matches her dress exactly and we don't love that. We've given him a lot of leeway as a teen idol, but we can't sign off on this one. He looks a little ridiculous.

Tory Burch

That jewelry is a CRIME paired with that dress. We love neither the dress nor the jewelry, but putting them together takes two inoffensive items and makes one VERY OFFENSIVE look. We're so mad at you right now, Tory Burch.

Zooey Deschanel in Valentino Spring 2011

Batshit insane.
