2016 Oscars — Hits and Misses

For the first time in a long time (in my humble opinion), there were scores of beautiful dresses on the red carpet last night. Here are a few of them:

Alicia Vikander
Tina Fey
Naomi Watts
Charlize Theron

Transitioning from best to worst, I think Tina Fey looked spectacular…Amy Poehler, not so much.

And the flops of the night:

Alyssa Milano

Alyssa Milano

Jessica Chastain (The expression on the face of the woman behind her pretty much sums up my feelings about this dress.)

Halle Berry (mainly because the bodice of this dress makes her look as if her right boob is melting)

2012 Academy Awards

The Hits:

Penelope Cruz

Natalie Portman

Mila Jovovich

Cameron Diaz

Octavia Spencer

The Misses:

Kristen Wiig

Tina Fey

Maya Rudolph

Meryl Streep

This last one pains me, because I adore Meryl Streep. In this instance, however, her beauty is overwhelmed by masses of fabric.
