Oscar Awards 2015 Ceremony Hosted the Most Spectacular Outfits of the Year

Oscar Awards ceremony was preceded by the classic scrolling on the red carpet, the stars taking the opportunity to be seen, photographed and analyzed by fashion critics. Some impressed, some not.

The 87th edition of the American Film Academy Awards held on February 22, 2015 at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California. As always, while the main reason for this event was prizes awarding, surely one of the most attractive moments for the press and for the fashion critics was definitely the parade of celebrities on the red carpet, who have exhibited grandiose outfits chosen very carefully some months before the event.

Of course, fashion critics focused especially on the actresses dresses and this fact has led to both praises and criticism. After the curtain has been closed, the specialists in fashion gave us a list with the most successful appearances, and also ones with the most inappropriate outfits.

Among the stars most inspired in choosing an outfit for the event were:

Rosamund Pike the actress in Gone Girl, made a splash in a red dress, long, signed by Givenchy. The outfit has received acclaim from some of the biggest fashion magazines like Vanity Fair and Vogue.


Dakota Johnson, the actress from “50 shades of Grey” wore also a long red dress, signed by Yves Saint Laurent and jewelry from Forevermark Diamonds and Bally clutch.

Unfortunately not all the stars have managed to please the critics of fashion, which led to a list of “poorly dressed” celebrities.

Although some critics have praised the creation signed by Azzadine Alaia, others blamed it. Lady Gaga had a controversial appearance at this year’s Oscars. Some felt that Azzadine Alaia dress she wore it to her advantage, others disliked it because of its unusual proportions, the texture reminding of frogs skin and strangely accessorized with red gloves, like her gardener’s, perhaps. Note, however, this was the brand’s first appearance at the Oscars, Azzadine Alaia dress being worn by a star as big as Gaga. The dress was made to order and required the work of 25 people for two weeks.


Felicity Jones, actress nominee for her role in “The Theory of Everything” was not pleased by fashion critics, even if she worn a dress by Alexander McQueen. The creation with a tight waist had a top of embroidery over bust and neck, leaving bare shoulders and at the bottom, gray taffeta. I think, however, she was not even the worst dressed star.


Chloe Grace Moretz wore a Miu Miu dress from material compared by critics to bed sheets. They say the pockets and the cutting swell her hips and did nothing but to disadvantage the silhouette of young actress. Certainly, it was a totally inappropriate attire for an event like the Oscars.

Beyond its successful appearances in the past, Solange Knowles goofed this year choosing a “jumpsuit ” dress that was mistaken for a red carpet, with long sleeves and turtleneck collar and with many overlaps and asymmetry. The creation belongs to Christian Siriano brand.


Another bad received figure was the composer Diane Warren who chose not to wear a dress, although the dresscode required this, but a more masculine outfit: black trousers, silver sequined jacket and leather boots.

Laura Dern, nominated actress for her supporting role, chose a silver dress and armor of knights dress from another time and place. This creation belongs to the designer Alberta Ferretti. Unfortunately this outfit has been criticized by specialists in fashion, placing the celebrity on the “uninspired” list.


Jennifer Lopez has been praised by critics for her dress, although Emma Stone also opted for a Lebanese designer Elie Saab creation. She has taken a big risk in 2015 Oscar with a dress that creamy, full of gold and silver stones. The elegant long train with very deep neckline offset by Jennifer Lopez is the only red carpet dress that has exposed breasts so nonchalantly at a classy event like the Oscars.


There wasn’t always the dress that brought harsh criticism, it was also accessories and hairstyle. Although in the past we were pleasantly impressed by her appearance, this time Scarlett Johansson disappointed with her choice: the dress was not to blame, although very beautiful, by Atelier Versace, but because that she kept us busy with a necklace with hundreds of beads in the same shade. A minus offered in hairstyle, also, she chose to shave the side of the head and wear hair stretched, thrown back.


It seems that critics were also with their eyes fixed on the male stars, also, the most criticized being disappointing Jared Leto who abandons classic black tuxedo and chose a lavender suit. In addition, he made an appearance on the red carpet with a strange accessory: a huge umbrella, although on the Red Carpet nor rain or sun was beating so strongly so that he was obliged to avoid the ultraviolets.
