Now that we know who won the 2017 Academy Awards we can get down to business: taking apart everyone’s looks from the comfort of our own homes.
Moonlight may have won Best Picture, but we think these fashion awards (decided and presented by the Essentials team gathered around a few cups of tea) are much more fun.
What can we say about actress Taraji P Henson’s look except wow! What a way to show off those amazing legs — and this Alberta Ferretti gown is definitely the right way to wear velvet.
Present Lookalike Award
Model, actress and photographer Daria Strokous looks a little like something you expect a 5 year old to get on their birthday.
Most likely to Win an Oscar
Actress Emma Stone looked like a winner in a Givenchy gown and she was — walking away with the Best Actress award for her performance in La La Land.
What else can we say about dancer, actress and musician Sofia Boutella except that a picture says a thousand words…
Olivia Culpo wins our award for the best dressed on the night. Not only was her Marchesa dress effortlessly elegant, her simple accessories stole the show. Plus, her gown was made from melted down beer glasses, if you can believe that! Read the full story here.
There’s nothing worse than all those plastic bags lying around right? Clearly actress Leslie Mann agrees.
Remember that day you were in a rush to get to work and grabbed a pair of mismatching shoes? Good news — Naomie Harris shows us how to pull that look off the right way. But seriously, we love her standout Calvin Klein shoes and Calvin Klein dress.
Priyanka Chopra has the perfect solution for those nights when you want to go out, but you also want to stay at home snuggled under your duvet. (Also, we can’t help wondering: what’s keeping that dress up? Cardboard?)
Cutest Couple Award
As always, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are #couplegoals and #fashiongoals.
Best Flower Arrangement
Hopefully producer Raphaela Neihausen didn’t sit next to anyone with pollen allergies…
The Right Way to Wear Red Award
Best Supporting Actress winner Viola Davis stuns in this red Armani Prive floor-length gown.
Public service announcement: we think these are the wrong ways to wear red (but some fashionistas were loving the long-sleeved gowns).
Under the Sea Award
We’re sure those frills would help actress Blanca Blanco float if she was thrown overboard.
Most Striking Dress Award
Actress Brie Larson looked memorable in a super sexy Oscar de la Renta black dress. We love the layers and the unique neckline.
Most Likely to Slip and then Sleep on the Red Carpet
The second bedroom inspired look at the 2017 Oscars! Dakota Johnson, it’s a no from us, what do you think?
