The 20 best and worst dressed celebs at the 2020 Oscars

Tom & Lorenzo dish on who nailed their looks—and who didn’t.

It’s Hollywood’s prom night, people! And all the would-be kings and would-be queens of the ball—from the surefire bets, to the just-honored-to-be-nominated; the presenters to the passed-by—know good and well that hitting that Oscars red carpet in something jaw-dropping, discussion-promoting, statement-making and all-around attention-seeking is half the reason for the night. Oh, you know it’s true.

Now let’s hand out some of our own awards!

The ‘Forever a Winner’ Award: Regina King in Versace

The stunning soft pink colour, the impeccable fit, the gorgeous diamonds, the flawless makeup—it didn’t just combine to make a perfect look; it made her look like the world-class star that she is.
The ‘Girl, What?’ Award: Laura Dern in Armani Prive

The Marriage Story star looked like a winner and a star in a sleek coif, a soft pink gown, and…a beaded bra? With tassels? We love you, but you lost us on that one, Miss Dern.

The Arms-Length Award: Saoirse Ronan in Valentino

Crumb catcher or cow catcher? One thing’s for sure, Saoirse’s not going to be doing too much hugging tonight. And she’ll always have a place to rest her drink.

The Award for Most Practical: Charlize Theron in Dior

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Keeping things simple, unfussy, a little bit sexy, and a little bit hard. She is amazingly well-tuned into what works for her and how to deploy it.

Award for Best Sense of Self: Renee Zellweger in Armani

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

She stuck rigidly to her style preferences all through awards season: minimalism, neutrals, a column skirt, and stiletto pumps. Listen, the lady likes what she likes and there’s nothing wrong with that! Especially since she saved the best look for last—this simple, shimmering classic one-shoulder number.

The Armored Avenger Award: Scarlett Johansson in Oscar de la Renta

The Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit star kept things tight, metallic, and sexy, coming across strong, beautiful, and confident on a night when that’s exactly what she wants to project.

The Tweeds for Teens Award: Billie Eilish in Chanel

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

The best thing about Billie’s immovable sense of style and how she wants to use it in her career is the way she forces the biggest houses in fashion to bend to her will, altering the very DNA of their brands for the opportunity to dress her. Here, the House of Chanel takes their classic tweed suit and completely shapes it to Billie’s specifications.

The Sophisticated Girl Award: Julia Butters in Christian Siriano

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

All cupcake frills and cutenesss, crossed with a tons of drama and sophistication that absolutely reflect the young Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood actress’s charming and admirable poise and professionalism.

The Most Dresses at Once Award: Gal Gadot in Givenchy Couture

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

The Wonder Woman 1984 star can handle a lot of fashion at once, but her fluffy pink skirt and black-lace bodice looked like someone stitched two dresses together, producing a hybrid garment that looked like too much for even an Amazon to bear.

The King and Queen of the Prom Award: Billy Porter in Giles Deacon

Doing it bigger, louder, more fabulous and with less boundaries than just about anybody else.

The ‘Killed Us Dead’ Award: Janelle Monae in Ralph Lauren
92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Slaying, werking! Miss Janelle, in a mirrored silver space monk ensemble, did not come to play and we are honestly all the better for it.

The Statement-Sleeves Award: Sandra Oh in Elie Saab

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Sandra served up an explosion of ruffles and flowers that almost threatened to overwhelm her. If those statement sleeves were trying to say something, it may have come close to ‘Help! We’re too much!’

The Merchandising Possibilities Award: Olivia Colman in Stella McCartney

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

With its odd little ears and unusually placed embellishments, the star of The Crown sported a dress that looked a little bit like that adorable Star Wars creature we all know and love.

The Badass Award: Natalie Portman in Dior

Look, we love a cape at the Oscars as much as anyone, but when the actress and director revealed that she had the names of female directors passed over for nominations by the Academy embroidered in gold on hers, we gave her a standing ovation in our living room.

The Nailed-It Award: Mindy Kaling in Dolce & Gabbana

Hello to Mindy, working a flawless fit, a perfect silhouette, and a color that absolutely sang on her. When someone knows they really look fantastic, it radiates out of them and Mindy was glowing so hard you could see her from space.

Cutest Couple Award: Rami Malek and Lucy Boynton in Saint Laurent and Chanel

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals
AMY SUSSMAN GETTY IMAGES

Come on. When are they ever not the cutest couple in the room? They were helped along considerably by these chic and sophisticated ensembles that didn’t match, but definitely went together. Sort of like them.

The Most Surprising Award: Cynthia Erivo in Versace

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals
AMY SUSSMAN GETTY IMAGES

Leaving behind the insanely bold color and wild prints that characterized her awards-season style, the Harriet star shocked in this sparkly-white asymmetrical Versace number, which offered a different kind of boldness than we expected to see.

The ‘I’m Not Winning an Award’ Award: Margot Robbie in Chanel

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals
AMY SUSSMAN GETTY IMAGES

Margot kept things low-key, elegant, and subdued…with just enough of a sense of confident glamour that says more than any ‘It’s just an honor to even be here’ statement could.

The ‘Not All Heroes’Award: Timothee Chalamet in Prada

92nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals
KEVIN MAZUR GETTY IMAGES

Looking like a very cute, surprisingly chic and well-dressed paramedic, right? An unexpected choice, but we’ll take it!

The Most-Confusing-of-the-Night Award: Kristen Wiig in Valentino Couture

You tell us what you see. We’ll start with some ideas: a lasagna noodle, some sort of sea creature, or that ribbon candy your grandmother used to love?
