As we like to carry-on about the best dressed, there is always a bigger desire to point out the worst dressed at the Oscars. As we watch these famous icons walk the red carpet, there seems to be one or two ladies where you wonder why they decided on that dress color, pattern, or hair do. This year I think everyone arrived looking great but there were a few who were not as stunning as the rest. Here is a list of the top five of the worst (or not-so-best) dressed actresses at the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
Actress Anne Hathaway in Prada dress
Anne Hathaway was attacked by many due to a fashion faux pas where a nipple was visible during her descent on the red carpet. This faux pas put her on many “worst-dressed” lists, while her co-star Samantha Barks was praised as best dressed for a revealing Valentino gown and leaving nothing to the imagination. Otherwise, Anne was stunning in her Prada gown and cute hair do, the only change that should have been considered is the color and cut of the dress; a deeper pink or shade would have been breathtaking against her pale complexion as well as a more fitted gown to accentuate her cute figure.
Actress Sally Field arrives in Valentino dress
Sally Field arrived in a red Valentino gown, which was lovely but also not-so-cute from certain angles. While the dress was very tasteful and appropriate for Sally, there was so much red and odd drapes and layers within the dress that made it unflattering at times.
Actress Salma Hayek arrives in Alexander McQueen dress
Salma Hayek’s Alexander McQueen dress was a little too much around the neckline. The gold jewels and accessories were too gaudy as well as appeared to be very uncomfortable, which may be why she was stiff and unhappy in the majority of her photos.
Actress Kristen Stewart arrives in Reem Acra dress
Kristen Stewart arrived on crutches but that is not why she made this worst dressed list. The Reem Acra gown color and style was not ideal for Kristen’s body type. Something more flowing along with a darker shade would have accentuated her hour-glass figure and lovely auburn hair and complexion.
Actress Rachel Mwanza arrives in Kate Spade New York’s “Tiebreaker” style
Rachel Mwanza dress made a statement and presence indeed! While the dress best represented the fun and upbeat personality of this young actress, it probably could have been made with some bold colors versus this crazy pattern.
