Every year during the red carpet season, there are the die-hard fashionistas, the pretenders, and those select few that come into their own and receive anointments as true sartorial sensations. The place to shine brightest is of course the Academy Awards, and this year, it went something like this…



Charlize Theron

Is it just us or has it seemed as if Charlize has been missing from the red carpets of late? Well, with this scarlet Dior number, Theron took the red carpet – and audiences around the world – for the plunge of all time. Sean who?

Lady Gaga

She may not have won the Oscar for Best Song, but make no mistake about this year’s red carpet race: Gaga was in it from start to finish. This Brandon Maxwell pantsuit was epic glamor. It looks like Hollywood has finally embraced pop’s biggest misfit.

Rachel McAdams

88th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Well, well, well!

We knew Rachel had it in her, but we never thought she’d actually put it on display! But at this year’s Oscars, McAdams pulled out all the stops and went for slits that had all the other girls on the carpet jealous haters. She may be one of Canada’s finest, but America needs to officially adopt her now!

Priyanka Chopra 88th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

If you don’t know who she is or how to pronounce her name, fret not. If she keeps giving us fierceness like this Zuhair Murad dress, you will soon know how to spell it backwards and forwards. This may have been one of the style moments of the night.

Cate Blanchett 88th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Every year, Cate goes hard on the red carpet, always mixing it up and always winning. 2016 was no different and there are few women that could have pulled off this flowery ensemble with conviction, but leave it to one of Hollywood’s leading ladies to get the job done. Take notes, fashionistas. This is how you strangle a red carpet and make it your bitch!


Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum

We have never considered her a supermodel, and if anything, this dress was super confusing. Heidi needs to run back up the hill and re-think her next red carpet look, because this one was the frock of sartorial f*ckery.


Daisy Ripley


With a resume that includes now one of the biggest movies of all time, Daisy Ripley has entered Hollywood in a major way, and now she has cemented her position as a future red carpet winner by sauntering down in this Chanel number. We think this is the start of something big!

Stay tuned…
