The 86th annual Academy Awards, also known as the Super Bowl of Fashion, came around again last night and fashionistas from all over the world tuned in to look at all of the amazing outfits on show this year. However, you can’t have the good without the bad and the ugly, so here at Fashion North we’ve picked out our choices for worst dressed:
First Pharrell Williams caused controversy with his Westwood hat and now he’s turned up to one of the biggest events of the year in a pair of school boy shorts. We’re all for wild fashion choices Pharrell but surely the Oscars requires a complete pair of trousers? No? Okay.
Liza Minnelli over did the “pyjama chic” trend as she flounced down the red carpet in a silky blue, off-the-shoulder, pyjama set. Oh, and not forgetting the co-ordinating neon blue streak in her hair.
Anna Kendrick failed to impress either with her J. Mendel dress. Ruffles, an asymmetrical neckline, patterned belt and a high-low bottom left us feeling overwhelmed, and not in a good way.
It appeared Jennifer Garner stepped out of a time machine last night, as she wore a 20s-inspired flapper gown. However, there was far too much fringing and tacky metallic detailing for us – sorry Jen!
Last but not least, Penelope Cruz had a hard act to follow after Lupita Nyong’o wore a gorgeous pastel grecian-inspired dress, so we do sympathise with you Penelope. But your powder pink, excessive, bed sheet inspired dress/toga didn’t quite have the same effect as Lupita’s. Better luck next time.
