If you are a 🆕 friend 🫂 to my blog ✖️ reviews, first & foremost WELCOME 💗
BUT if you are a ♻️ returning buddy 👯♀️ you know I NEVER 🙅🏽♀️ read reviews 📰 until AFTER I’ve completed my assessments 🔎
*listed in no particular order
This look has to be the CLEAR CRITIQUE’S FAVORITE 🏅 & have to admit 🤫 IT’S ALSO MINE 💖 Zoe STOLE THE CARPET 🥳 in my opinion 👑
My fashion icon is THE LEGEND 💎 AUDREY HEPBURN 💎 which Zoe & her team 💣 were clearly channeling 🔮 for this look! From the pixie🧚🏾♀️bangs to the single strand diamond 🔷 necklace… this look IS PERFECTION! ✅
BET 🎰 this NEXT-LEVEL Saint Laurent (or a more affordable version) will be the #1 gown 👗 flying 🦅 out of the dress shops 🏬 for prom 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣2️⃣
First, I saw the gown 👀 & FELL OUT 🪦 Then I said, IT’S SUPERMODEL LIYA KEBEDE!! 😮
This look is UNDENIABLE🔥 Her skin is as stunning as the dark wine velvet fabric 🪢
It all reminds me of liquids 🤔 I know that sounds weird 🙃 but her skin is like liquid metal ➕ the velvet & cut out ✂️ have a fluid quality that gives me water vibes 💦
As you will note 📝 in later reviews 👇🏽 the “styled but not styled” hair is not my fav 🙄 However, Liya’s SOFT WAVY 🌊 (*another water reference 🤣) BOB WORKS here 😘 Over-styled would have detracted 😡 from this STUNNING Azzedine Alaïa gown 💝
📣 Young Hollywood TAKE NOTE PLEASE (worst dressed ⬇️) THIS IS HOW’S IT’S DONE for the Oscar’s❗️
Kirsten has been walking the red carpet for a long time ⏳ (*HELLO Interview with a Vampire) Occasionally she has a mis-step in her fashion 🙀 but this VINTAGE CHRISTIAN LACROIX IS EVERYTHING! 🤤
Keeping it simple 🧘🏽♀️ with hair 💇🏽♀️ & makeup makes the gown pop 💥
Here’s a little industry secret 🤫 Wearing the hair up or off the face is sometimes written ✍🏽 into the contract 📑 when fashion stylist’s borrow 🤲🏽 jewelry 💍 for the red carpet 🤯
🙋🏽♀️ COME ON… YOU KNOW! I am sure the critiques LOVE THIS LOOK 💋 & SO DO I 💃🏽
As YOUR FASHION STYLIST 🦸🏽♀️ if I called📱and said, “head-to-toe gold lame sequin & tinsel-like strips with pale pink sequin flowers on a bracelet sleeve column gown?” 💡
You would say, “GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!” 😂
Only the genius 🧠 team at Prada could make this impossibly 🧩 beautiful dress not only work, but STEAL THE SHOW 💯
Even the high stacked locs 💇🏽♀️ could have been too much 🤞🏽 for such an over the top gown🥻 However, Lupita’s hair stylist did it FLAWLESSLY! 👏🏽
LOVE A COLORED TUXEDO! 👏🏽 And to do it in powder blue… not an easy color 🥵 Adding texture by using sheen on the lapels of this Bottega Venetta suit is TALENT! 😘
Some critiques 📰 may think to do this color 💙 head-to-toe including the shirt & stacked shoes 👞 is too much. For me juxtaposing Kodi Smith-McPhee’s (*youngest nominee) pale complexion 👻 MAKES IT ALL WORK! 🌞
Modernizing the look with a diamond 💎 necklace & matching powder blue watch ⌚️… LIVING!
My girl Tiffany HAS COME A LONG WAY 🎆 from the days when she wore the same ♻️ dress for every red carpet! 😉
This STUNNING Dolce & Gabbana gown IS GIVING EVERYTHING 💯 IT’S SUPPOSED TO GIVE 🎊 for the Oscars. It hugs her curves ⏳ & the hunter green makes her skin tone pop! 💣
The platinum 👱🏽♀️ finger waves & soft beat makeup 👩🏽🎨 takes this from average 🥱 to OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR 💃🏽
If I have to knit pick 🤷🏽♀️ (it’s the fashion stylist in me 🤦🏽♀️) would have picked only 1 ring, 2️⃣ cheapens it a bit 🤏🏽
🗣 Said it before, LOVE A COLORED TUXEDO! 💗 When a man chooses a colored suit 🧥 it shows they are a risk taker 🏂🏾 & want to be noticed 📸
Another industry secret 🤫 a colored tux is usually reserved 🙅🏽♀️ for nominees & presenters 🎤 (see * )
Not a huge fan 🥺 of Sebastián’s (*nominated song) loafer-style evening shoes 👞 Would have preferred something more modern 🆒 the way Kodi did it ⬆️
A cream bow-tie 🎀 would have been less harsh 🔦 against the pale pink; making the vest 🦺 more obvious 😃
HAD TO put Serena on my best dressed 🤩 because her sister, WELL… see below 👇🏽
This simple Gucci gown looks AMAZING ON SERENA! 💋
She may have too many 🤏🏽 trends in one look (pleats, gloves 🧤, chunky shoes) but I get it. Her team 🤹♂️ wants to remind you 🪢 Serena is the 1️⃣ making moves in the fashion world 🌍
What drew me to put this on my best dressed 🏅 is the simplicity of the hair & makeup 🎨 Serena is BEYOND GORGEOUS & knows her KILLER BODY 🎾 through the sheer chiffon & THAT MONEY MAKING 💵 FACE are REALLY THE STARS ⭐️ OF THE SHOW!
DO I REALLY NEED TO SAY WHY❓ OK 🙆🏽♀️
- IT’S JADA
- IT’S GAULTIER COUTURE
This gown was OBVIOUSLY MADE 🧵 JUST FOR JADA; only she could PULL THIS SHIT OFF 👸🏽
What MAKES THIS EPIC 🔥is Jada is a very small woman but this NEXT➖LEVEL hunter green tucked skirt & train 👘 makes her look like a FUCKING AMAZON WARRIOR ⚔️
That high collar, full sleeve bodice has a streetwear vibe 😎 & again I AM DECEASED!!! 😵
Could talk 📢 about this look all day 🌒 The shaved 🪒 head with simple jewelry & glowy beat makeup WHAT? YAS❣️ As we say amongst my people, “WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?” 😂
Hate to pick a favorite but this is DEFINITELY MY BEST DRESSED 🥇 Love that Jada’s team picked a fashion house 🏢 many have been sleeping on 😴 Thanks to Jada the Gaultier house is again back on the fashionista’s 👑 radar
RITA IS A LEGEND KIDS! 💎 This Carolina Herrera gown IS MAGIC!! 🪄 I can see a wide range of ages 👩👧 ROCKING THE HELL OUT OF THIS! 🤩
Off the shoulder to highlight the collar bones & neck DYING! 🥳
Now you know I LOVE A HAT! 👒 And you would think this marabou feather hat would overwhelm the ruffles in the dress, but IT COMPLETELY WORKS! 💯
The earring are beautiful & the logo buckle ballet flats 🥿 are FLAWLESS ❗️Makeup was done impeccably & want YOUNG HOLLYWOOD TO TAKE NOTE! 📌
Hate to keep repeating 🔃 love a colored tuxedo BUT, I LOVE A COLORED TUXEDO ✅
Simu’s (*nominated film) team selecting this BONDESQUE 🕵🏽 silhouette of this Atelier Versace suit was BRILLANT! 🎉
Not sure if the watch ⌚️ is matching or if the gold is reflecting off the suit; either way I LOVE IT 💓
Modernizing the pant 👖 hem to a shorter length to showcase those BEAUTIFUL EVENING LOAFERS & the red “sash” 🤴🏽 as “jewelry” YAS!! 🤸🏽♀️
EFFORTLESS STUNNING! 😘 When I say this look is effortless, it’s not to diminish the incredible details 🪡 of this Giorgio Armani confection 🍭 I mean this little ingénue looks like she was born on the red carpet!!
Saniyaa let the subtle beat 🎨 on her FLAWLESS FACE shine 🌞 over the gown❣️ The little pixie bang chingnon ➕ understated diamond🔸earrings are NEXT LEVEL! 💛
I am a Kristen Stewart fan 💯 & was thrilled to see her looking UNDENIABLE IN CHANEL❣️ Granted she is the current face of THE CHANEL BRAND so I would expect no less 💘 LEGS ALL DAY 👀
Kristen has really come into her own 🪴 & has THE RIGHT FASHION TEAM 🤑 getting her greater opportunities 🪜 She knew the necklace was the standout 🤗 piece & highlighted it beautifully❗️
I know you are thinking 🤔 Adrienne, you can’t possibly like the hair 😡 Well, you are wrong 🙅🏽♀️ This is the perfect hair for Kristen, it is THOUGHTFUL, EDGY & STRONG! 🤵🏼♀️
You know that adage 📖; when you don’t have anything nice to say 🧏🏽♀️… However, I am a fashion stylist 👸🏽 blogger 👩🏽💻 & brand auditor 🕵🏽♀️ so I HAVE TO SAY A LITTLE 😉

Not flattering & too many thoughts in 1 dress. Here’s that “styled but not styled” hair mentioned above ☝🏽
Sloppy & thoughtless. Just because you are not nominated don’t show up like this; looks like a sore looser.
If you have to go through these posing lengths to give your dress it’s best angles, maybe it’s too many ideas.
The hair is… NO, why do a finger curl in the front & zero in the back YIKES! Only thing saving this look are the shoes.
Clearly new to the Oscar’s red carpet. Fire your team & call me honey; this is a HOT ASS MESS! Didn’t think it was possible to FUCK UP Louis Vuitton, but somehow your team did, WOW!
My babies, WATCH AN OSCAR’S RED CARPET BEFORE YOU HIRE A STYLE TEAM. It is crucial to have the right people because you are being PHOTOGRAPHED FOR THE WORLD!
Rickey, CALL ME BOO! If your style team just says yes to EVERYTHING YOU WANT, they are NOT THE RIGHT TEAM to take your career to the next level.
Once again, too many ideas in one look. Without the gloves & Barbarella hairdo this would have been a winner!
Also noted she is the only person with a purse on the carpet NO NO NO!
WHY SO MANY IDEAS in 1 look people? Don’t you know the infamous line
Before you leave the house take off 1 itemMADAME COCO CHANEL
Wesley needs to take off at least 5; or better yet A DIFFERNT LOOK ALTOGETHER!
This dress is beautiful however the silhouette is not flattering; would have preferred a less body con cut. Also the makeup & hoop earrings cheapen the whole look!
Another simple yet beautiful gown MADE LESS by the lack of thought on the styling. Jennifer needs a new hair stylist because the LA casual look she’s been sporting for decades is PLAYED OUT!
NO BABAY GIRLS! You got your invitations mixed up, this is the Oscars not the Grammy’s. CALL ME NOW, I’LL GET YOU TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
It’s understandable to make a misstep for your first few awards seasons, but you need the right stylist if you are going to be taken seriously & have staying power in Hollywood.
MY TEAM would have told you Cavalli is tough to pull off for the Oscar’s red carpet. The Cavalli house is best suited for the afterparties.
EVERYTHING IS OVER THE TOP but not in a good way!
I know this is a critics favorite mostly because it’s Billie. This Gucci gown is BEAUTIFUL, but the lack of a defined waist is murder to pull off.
If you have to pose with your hands in a position to snatch the waist then YOUR TEAM DID NOT DO THEIR JOB showcasing the details of this dress.
Also where’s the joy ? That sour puss brings the entire look down. There’s goth & there’s SPOILED BRAT that Billie is giving.
SHE TRIED, YA’LL! It has to be tough to compete with your sister in EVERYTHING including fashion. Not sure why Serena as a designer, didn’t step up to Venus’ fashion team & say NO FUCKING WAY!
This is another look I am sure the critiques raved over, but I AM NOT A FAN! Something about the way the low neckline is cut doesn’t flatter her breasts.
Again with the Barbarella hair? I love a full-volume high pony, but the look needs to support it. Simpler hair & earrings would have made this much better.
The only thing saving the look is the bracelets & the makeup.
I am adding Zendaya’s gorgeous Valentino Couture look to the honorable mentions list because I know the critiques probably ATE THIS UP! Don’t get me wrong this custom look is STUNNING but it’s a little predictable. The stand out for me are the diamond bracelets!
I added this to my honorable mentions becaue Demi is new to the awards season & thought her choice to wear this Miu Miu gown was perfect. Unfortunately I want to yank it up a bit to flatter her decolletage & lower the hem to showcase more of the beading.
Also wished her team gave a little more thought to the hair & makeup. A little bit of volume to the ponytail would have made all the difference. And maybe 1 less ring.
Tracee is a BLACK FEMALE FASHION ICON! However, I am not a huge fan of her style. Don’t get me wrong, as a fashion stylist I appreciate EVERYONE’S style but not everything is MY STYLE.
Tracee chooses BOLD POWERFUL looks & ROCKS THEM LIKE A QUEEN! This Carolina Herrera is just what I would expect Tracee & her team to select. It fits her like a glove & LOVE that she kept the makeup & hair simple.
The standout piece is the starburst diamond necklace WOAH!
I added Kortney to my honorable mentions because she choose to honor the late great Thierry Mugler. Nothing more to say.
You know THIS WAS THE LOOK TRENDING the day after the Oscars. I don’t read other reviews but you would have to live in a hole not to have seen this all over social media.
I believe wearing a Louis Vuitton womenswear lace & sequin blazer IS BOLD & BEAUTIFUL! Timothée is a sexy kid but would have preferred an even more edgy take. Maybe a navy wife beater a la Sharon Stone when she wore the gap t-shirt. Would have highlighted the details in the jacket & popped the diamonds in the necklace.
STAY FASHIONABLE 🥰
