Oscars 2022 Fashion

I've gotten out of the routine of going to see the Oscar nominated movies every year {stupid Covid}, and I wasn't planning on doing a fashion post because, frankly, it takes a lot of time. But after all the drama from Sunday's show and looking at a lot of pictures online...I just got the itch to do a post, ha!

A few things I'm going to say before we start:
1) I'm not going to put any thoughts down about Will Smith - I'm learning this is a lot more complicated of an issue, and it isn't my place to comment.
2) I'm not going to comment about anyone's body - this is purely meant to be a fun post about fashion - and there is too much negativity in the world about women's bodies and I'm not going to add to it.
3) It was really hard to find pictures I could save - I think websites are getting smarter in how they share their pics, so I wish I had more pictures to share, but I frankly gave up by the end!

So let's get started!! I'm going to switch things up and talk about couples first! I feel like the men brought their A-game today! There were so many unique takes on the traditional tux that WORKED, I was so excited.

Beyonce and Jay-Z
I thought she looked amazing - I loved the uniqueness of this dress!
It looked like it was made for her {it probably was ha}.
I also loved the statement earrings with her hair pulled back.
And Jay-Z looks so great - the white jacket is great and the tux fit fantastic!

Jamie Dornan and Amelia Warner
Pretty basis {except I'm on the fence about the shoes}, but he looks nice!
Her dress is fine, but it doesn't wow me.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
This was boring to me...

Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey
HOLY HOTNESS! Definitely my favorite couple!
I LOVE his tux and she looks incredible - what a unique and amazing dress!

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis
He didn't wow me, but I did think she looked great!
My only complaint is the wrinkles in her dress but not sure how you prevent that.

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
They look fantastic! Her dress is very beautiful and unique, 
and this {to me} is how you coordinate with your date {vs Kourt/Travis}

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith
Her dress was so unusual/interesting, but I felt like it overwhelmed her?
And I thought his tux was great - I liked the black vest.

Now some time to focus on the ladies! Overall, I really loved most of the looks I saw AND felt like there were several unique looks that we don't normally see at the Oscars - it was a lot of fun fashion!

Amy Forsyth 
She plays a recurring character of my new fave shows - The Gilded Age!
She's on the younger side, and I thought this was so fun! 
I loved the ruffles, little show of leg, and super sexy shoes!

Amy Schumer
This just didn't wow me - it felt kind of boring compared to others.

Ariana DeBose
I'm on the fence about this!
Love the color and the pant suit but can't decide what I think of the cape - 
on one hand it dresses it up, on the other it's too much?

Aunjanue Ellis
I like this but it wasn't one of my favorites.

Ava DuVernay
I liked that this was a little different {not revealing} but also a softer material.
It also wasn't boring because it had that funky detailing on the shoulders.

Becky G
I loved this! So beautiful!

Billie Eillish
Her style is not my style, so this is a no for me.

Caitroina Balfe
You guys know how I feel about Outlander, but this is just okay in my opinion.

Cynthia Erivo
This is such a cool look! She looks like a bad A woman!

Dakota Johnson
It's very feathery but also a really pretty silhouette!

Demi Singleton
She's 15! I love, love, love this for her!

Emilia Jones
I think I wish this had been a different color?
It blended too much with her skin for me.

Jane Campion
This just looked like a sack!

Jennifer Garner
AMAZING!!! Definitely one of my favorites!

Jessica Chastain
Another favorite! Gosh, this was pretty and flattering!

Kirsten Dunst
This is very pretty and I love the swirls - just not my top 5.

Kristen Stewart
She's another person who I feel I don't 'get'.
I thought this was a super fun/sexy outfit...but more for the Grammy's, no??

Lily James
Holy Smoke Show - LOVE THIS!

Lupita Nyong'o
This was another unique look that I loved! Incredibly beautiful!!
I think she rocks everything, and I love that she is always switching it up.

Maggie Gyllenhaal
I don't like this.

Marlee Matlin
She is killing it in this dress, I really dig this. My only complaint is the necklace.

Megan Thee Stallion
Very sexy!

Nicole Kidman
She has such a small frame, and I feel like this overwhelms her.

Olivia Colman
Gosh I love this. I usually hate everything she wears, so this is fantastic!

Queen Latifah
Her name is Queen for a reason {grin}

Rachel Zegler
Please pick my jaw up off the floor!!!!!!!!

Regina Hall
This was very pretty, but brown isn't a color I love for clothes, ha.
She looks great, though, so ignore my dislike for that color. ;)

Rosie Perez
There seemed to be a lot of trains or flowy overlays this year.
I think she looks great!

Saniyya Sidney
The other adorable 15-year-old! This is perfection.

Sofia Carson
I like the top separate from the bottom - too much tulle overall.
But she's beautiful in it!

Tiffany Haddish
I'm listening to her memoir right now and LOVE her.
This is really unique and awesome - I didn't love it right away,
but I saw a few different angles of it, and it's really neat and fits her amazingly.

Tracee Ellis Ross

Uma Thurman
She looks beautiful but this is boring.

Vanessa Hudgens
I loved this dress when Selena Gomez wore it a few years ago, ha.

THIS is how you do a white shirt with a skirt. Take note, Uma.

Zoe Kravitz
This shocked me for her - it's like she was playing dress-up.
It's a pretty dress but felt 'safe' from her???

Zuri Hall
I love this!

Now let's talk about some men! A lot more of the fun/unique tuxedos - some worked for me but some didn't. Overall, I loved that so many guys were adventurous.

Daniel Kaluuya
This is a beautiful color, it really popped on him!

David Oyelowo
This fit beautifully and was so fun!

Kodi Smit-McPhee
Unfortunately, this one didn't work for me.
I didn't like the cut of the jacket, that it was ALL blue, or those shoes.

Luis Fonsi
I loved the detailing around the color and the fit was perfect!

Simu Liu
This is maybe my favorite?!

Timothee Chalamet
He's like the boy version of Billie Eillish - I just don't get it.
But I also don't think I'm his target audience! {grin}

Wesley Snipes
It's a beautiful color, but I do not get this!

To end this post, here's some fun group shots!

The cast of CODA
How cute are they?!?!

The Haim sisters {Alana, on the far right, starred in Licorice Pizza}
How fun to get to go to the Oscars with your sisters!

Venus and Serena Williams
I'm not sure I would love a movie of my family's life being made,
but it would be a unique experience to share with my sister!

That's a wrap! What did you think? Who did you love or not?
