Andra Day In Zac Posen – 2018 Oscars

Andra Day truly had a moment (or 12) as she created her own personal photo shoot (even laying down!) on the red carpet of the 2018 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

The singer and performer wore a Zac Posen Spring 2018 gown, which really makes me wonder who exactly the designer had in mind when he created it.

I really took my time digesting this look, because I wanted to appreciate the unconventional nature and the art of it all, but unfortunately, I never got there. It’s not even just the intentional volume and haphazard seaming–the fabric is simply ugly. It looks much more elegant in the look book, but in person, it is garish.

Her makeup, however, is gorgeous and really is the perfect drama to compete with such a dress.

    I guess the cheese stands alone because I love her in this. It harkens back to the 1800s and I kinda love that. It’s like Mick Jagger…sexy ugly.

    Everybody talks for her the next day! Mission accomplished. Worst dressed.

    it does not seem her usual style which is more Liz Taylor 60’s vibe. Bummer.

    Gone with the winds – all the drapes vibe! but her performance and what she wore on stage were both phenomenal!

    It’s a carbon copy of a classic black Balenciaga dress.

    The fabric/pattern is truly bad. This is just silly.

    Her styling is so gorgeous neck up that it elevates everything, even these fancy curtains. Is that a widow’s peak? She’s stunning.

    This dress is not meant for the red-carpet, editorial only tbh

    Buckingham Palace called. They want their curtains back. I love Audra and drama but this is one ugly dress.

      OMG I’m crying. Hilarious.

    I don’t know – I’ll take this over another bland dress.

    Oh my, I can’t find anything redeeming about this

    I’m trying to imagine someone taller and with je ne sais quoi. Maybe Zendaya could pull it off. Not sure I want her to try, though.

    When you play dress-up with your grandma’s curtains…
