The 2019 Oscars on Sunday attracted megawatt stars wearing their finest attire in L.A. — some in chic and classic styles, and others who decided to take risks.
Of course, Twitter erupted with comments on both the Oscar snubs as well as the fashion fails.
Sarah Paulson embraced pink, which was one of the trending colors of the big night. Still, her overall look missed the mark for some observers. “That’s all around ugly. Bad dress, bad color (too harsh), really bad hair,” snipped costumer @delle59.
@alyssejacobs added, “Looks like Sarah Paulson also went shopping at the big, ugly pink dress store for this year’s #Oscars.”
Glenn Close was in the running for Best Actress in a Leading Role for “The Wife” and looked the part in a gold gown, but she went home empty-handed as Olivia Colman snapped up the gold statue for “The Favourite.”
One viewer thought Close made a bad choice. “Noooo, she made that dress made for her! She said it very clearly!!! Great actress but please!!! she is old , rich and as most old and rich …she wanted what she wanted and they did it for her ! UGLY DRESS,” tweeted @luta4621.
Speaking of Colman, the Best Actress winner got a tongue-in-cheek review of her Prada gown.
“olivia colman’s dress was very uglyfine! its miuccia prada’s bailiwick & a perfect look to win in. the impossible, glimmering gazar sleeves that work into a bow & then just dragged on senselessly in the back i LOVED,” quipped @tired_ugly_.
“SNL” alum Maya Rudolph always brings the laughs, but her outfit on the red carpet inspired giggles for the wrong reason. “Laughing at that pink dress my goodness somebody tell her it’s ugly,” tweeted @maggimay45.
@nolongerasleep added: “@MayaRudolph YOUR DRESS IS SO UGLY….DID EVERYONE GO TO A BRIDESMAID GOWN STORE….??????? HOLY CRAP…”
Songbird Kacey Musgraves looked like a princess in a pink Giambattista Valli gown, but one observer compared it to a loofah.
“Who wore it better?,” @jgro_1 tweeted, adding an image of a loofah alongside Musgraves.
