My Favorite Red Carpet Looks at this year’s Oscars

La la land won best picture at the Oscars last night!
No it didn’t.
These award night flubs are starting to become passe. First it was Miss Universe, now the Oscars. Anyway, as much as I love the movies, this is, of course, a beauty blog. And we wouldn’t be much of a beauty blog if we didn’t talk about the red carpet looks this year!
So without further ado, here are the nominations for the top looks at this year’s Oscars.

Emma Stone

Classic Hollywood beauty. Emma Stone was draped in gold, and with those red lips and that wave. It’s fitting for the star of La La Land.

Jessica Biel

The one word to described Jessica Biel at the Oscars was hypnotic. Metallic dress, hair in a bun and that deep black eyeliner. It’s almost Egyptian, and who doesn’t love a Cleopatra look?



Halle Berry

OK, the only reason for the Halle Berry love is that amazing loose afro. Sigh. One wishes they could rock hair like that.

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron has made a habit of portraying evil queens of late, and I can’t say her look is much of a departure from that. That being said, if I was an evil queen, I’d want to look like that.

Emma Roberts

I haven’t seen Ms. Roberts around very much lately, but I’ll be looking up what she’s wearing more often after this! Classic bomb shell. That hair, those lips and the soft smokey? Very “Mad Men”. Love it.


Sofia Carson

Red lips are really in this year aren’t they?! Sofia Carson rocks another pair, but what I love about her look is the striking simplicity of it. The contrast between them and her very dark brown hair and perfectly manicured brows. I also love her hair accessory. Perfectly princess-like.

And the winner is?

Janelle Monae


Famous for her show stopping quiff and suits, Janelle Monae is starting to also draw critical acclaim for her work in films. In fact, a couple of them featured prominently in this year’s Oscars: Moonlight (Best Picture) and Hidden Figures. So, it seems fitting that this supremely talented human being is also our winner this year for her incredible ensemble.
Sporting an Elie Saab gown dripping in sequins and beads, one thing I loved about her makeup was how perfectly contoured she was. She reminds me of a Queen Bey at the Grammy’s-Lite.
Hey. If anyone said I was even a tiny, incy, winsy, teeny bit like Beyonce, that’d be my life complete…
And that’s it for my favorite red carpet looks at this year’s Oscars! Let me know what looks you loved! And do you agree with Moonlight being this year’s best pic? Leave a comment below!
