Lindsey Vonn In Christian Siriano – 2018 Oscars

Lindsey Vonn attended the 2018 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

The Olympic athlete wore a dramatic Christian Siriano Pre-Fall 2018 gown with a Prada clutch, Rolex watch and dramatic red and diamond jewelry.

One thing is for certain: Lindsey did not come to the Oscars to be a shrinking flower! I think it’s safe to say she went for ‘extra’, and it’s actually working for her so well!

The tulle, the negative space, the different fabrics–all of it works together beautifully, and is a real show-stopper. At first, I wasn’t sure what I thought about such bold jewelry with such a bold gown, but honestly, I really like how extreme it all is!

What do you think: Here for it all, or a bit too much?

Kelly Marie Tran In Jenny Packham – 2018 Oscars

Kelly Marie Tran attended the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi actress wore an ethereal Jenny Packham Spring 2018 gown with subtle diamond jewels.

First of all, can I just say what a phenomenal color this is for the red carpet? It is definitely not one you see every day, and it is lovely for spring. Of course, the bead work and pleating are Jenny Packham perfection, and Kelly looks beautiful.

A creative updo and rosy makeup continue this unique but fitting look.

Paz Vega In Christopher Bu – 2018 Oscars

Paz Vega was one of the first stars down the red carpet at the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

The actress wore a striking Christopher Bu gown with Chopard jewelry.

I know there is going to be some differences in opinion on this gown, but I am completely sold on the unique beauty.

The structure is a true work of art, and the use of mixed prints in a formal gown is the type of creativity I simply love on the red carpet. The bold floral print was also a knock-out from afar, as Paz walked the carpet.

I love the effect of her delicate pixie with the neckline of the dress sans necklace–so serene and elegant

Abbie Cornish In Elie Saab Couture – 2018 Oscars

Abbie Cornish attended the 2018 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

The actress wore an Elie Saab Couture gown from the 2018 Spring collection, which was equal parts classic and modern.

The gown has a distinctly vintage art deco feel, while the rose gold color of the fabric and beading is thoroughly au courant. And while I am a little bored with the off-the-shoulder trend in general, it adds a dramatic and visually appealing element to this gown.

Rosy smokey makeup and a very simple blow-out complete the look.

Betty Gabriel In Phuong My – 2018 SAG Awards

Betty Gabriel attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The ‘Get Out’ actress wore a Phuong My dress that is both unexpected and dramatic.

I can see this dress being quite polarizing among readers, but I for one, am sold. The design of this gown would fall flat in just about any other fabric I can think of–seriously, picture it–but in this unique, tartan-esque print, the dress is pushed into a league all its own. It’s bold, it’s a risk and Betty pulls it off completely.

I also love that her makeup artist chose to match her smokey eye makeup with the color of the dress. The deep green is a fresh choice that really elevates the look beyond what more traditional colors could. The fresh mauve lip is also a smart choice, since it is slightly unexpected, just like the gown.

Maya Rudolph In Zac Posen – 2018 SAG Awards

Maya Rudolph attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The actress and comedienne wore a Zac Posen dress with a floral overlay and Irene Neuwirth jewels.

I love Maya, and I love Zac Posen, which is why it pains me to say I do not love this dress! The colors and the fabrication make it look like something you could get for $60 at a department store, and it feels wholly out-of-place on the red carpet!

I do love the long ruffle at the hemline, but that pretty much sums up what I like about the dress.

Am I being too harsh? Am I missing something wonderful here?

Sally Hawkins In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 SAG Awards

Sally Hawkins attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The nominee wore a Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture gown with a Tyler Ellis clutch, Stuart Weitzman ‘Queen’ pumps and Irene Neuwirth jewels.

Never one to shy away from bold fashion, Sally wears this in a way that many people could not. While it is definitely what many would refer to as a ‘lot of look’, I love how graphic and unique it is. The length is perfect on Sally’s petite frame, and I can’t help but smile, because she looks like she’s genuinely enjoying wear it.

I will say, I miss the belt from the runway presentation. Without it, the center of the print looks like a bullseye, and I find myself staring straight at it, every time I look at the gown.
