For the 90th Annual Academy Awards, celebrities got dressed up, walked the red carpet and clapped for all the deserving winners. And while the ceremony is a well-respected event in Hollywood, the best part of the night is arguably the red carpet.
So, we decided to stick with an Essentials tradition and give out some fashion awards…

Best Dressed Award – Gina Rodriguez
Probably our favourite look of the night, Jane the Virgin actress Gina Rodriguez hit all the right notes with this gown.
Worst Dressed Award – Whoopi Goldberg
This dress is doing Whoopi no favours… nor is that matching belt.
The Biggest Bow Award – Nicole Kidman
Every year, there’s someone who tries to out-bow the rest… This year, it was Nicole (Saoirse Ronan came in close second though)
Tinseltown Award – Margot Robbie
Celebration = Festiveness = Tinsel

Keeping it ’80s Award – Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer was relatable as always in this simple metallic beauty (and when she climbed over chairs without spilling a single drop of wine).
Lady in Red Award – Meryl Streep
Can this 3-time Academy Award winner (and 21-time nominee) do any wrong? Simple. Elegant. Timeless. We love it!
Worst Wakanda Award – Tiffany Haddish
Tiffany wore this Zuria gown in honour of her late father who was from Eritrea, a northeast African country. And while we want to love the dress because of that, we still feel that this look is just not working…
(The hair, make-up, as well as the colours and fit of the dress just don’t work well together)
