Lupita Nyong’o wore a custom Calvin Klein Collection by Francisco Costa, made of metallic tulle and silk lamé encrusted in natural pearls of varying sizes. I feel as if it was overworked in the bodice and built up too high and bully at the shoulders. I wish it looked more like the pearls rested naturally and organically at the neckline. Nonetheless, it was stolen afterward!
There were many more misses than hits on the carpet- Paltrow looked like she was channeling the Golden Girls, Moore’s Chanel dress was ruined by the black spots on that weird drop waist. Johannson thought that color is all that matters when styling an outfit. Rita Ora’s Marchesa looked like she shifted out of it a bit. Felicity Jones in that hideous heavy knotted McQueen was a sight for sore eyes. I don’t know what Dior Couture was thinking with Cotillard’s weird mess. Dern in Ferretti looked like she left the set of a movie still in wardrobe to play the queen of some ancient waring country. Leto looked like Jesus came back for the 2nd coming and became a cult leader. But among them all, Patricia Arquette in Rosetta Getty was the biggest mistake of the night given her role and nomination- this is the dress you want to be remembered for? Solange hardly ever gets it right, and this Christian Siriano proves that nothing high end comes out of Payless hunty.
