Oscars 2017: The Biggest Risk Takers of the Night
From dramatic ballgowns to surprisingly minimal dresses, it's up to you to decide if these risky red carpet moves paid off
Janelle has worn so many show-stopping black and white looks throughout awards season, but she kept her most embellished, sheer, dramatic look (it's Elie Saab Haute Couture) for last.
When your dress draws comparisons to Sandra Bullock's hand-me-down wedding dress from The Proposal, it might be a sign you could have lost a layer or two (she's in Gucci, with Cartier jewelry).
We love how much Naomie loves an avant-garde look, but was wearing a short strapless caped dress with a stomach cutout and mismatched shoes (all Calvin Klein by Appointment) a fun risk or fashion miss?
Scarlett usually turns heads for her body-skimming designs. This year, we did a double take after seeing the sheer amount of fabric in her loose-fitting A-line Alaïa gown.
We can certainly appreciate anyone who experiments with a bold color on the carpet or a standout silhouette. But mixing both (in Zac Posen) can run the risk of being red carpet overkill.
What's most shocking about Michelle's custom Louis Vuitton halter gown how much double-sided tape needed to secure that daringly low neckline.
The Oscars statue seemed to be the biggest inspiration behind a lot of the night's looks, but did Jessica's very literal interpretation take it a step too far?
If there ever was a time to go bold with a floral-print and exaggerated circle skirt, it would be at the Oscars. But we're not so certain this look is coming up roses.
Clearly Faye couldn't decide between a double-breasted tux or a ruffled, sheer gown, so she just combined the two!
Once you're done staring at those sculptural shoulder details, you'll probably start thinking, 'That slit is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.' And if you did, you'd be right!
