Henson, and Ruth Negga take the top spots in this year’s best-dressed list, while stars such as Dakota Johnson and Felicity Jones make up the worst dressed celebs at the Oscars 2017. Scroll down to check out our picks for best and worst dressed Hollywood stars at the Oscars 2017!
#1. Emma Stone
This year’s winner for Best Actress surely looked the part in her figure-hugging Givenchy Haute Couture dress with flowing fringe tiers (designed by Riccardo Tisci), and she completed the look with Tiffany & Co. accessories. Congratulations on a well-deserved win!
#2. Ruth Negga
The gorgeous Loving actress stood apart from the crowd in a cherry-red gown that ensured she remained in the spotlight all night. The sheer and lace details on her long-sleeved Valentino dress accentuated her flawless figure. She accessorized the scarlet number with Irene Neuwirth for Gemfields jewelry.
#3. Viola Davis
Davis stormed her way to the top of the best-dressed list with a custom red Armani Prove vermilion silk gown. The Fences star took home the award for Best Supporting Actress and slayed on stage as she delivered a powerful acceptance speech. The perfect halter neckline, coupled with the draped shoulders and pleated detailing, earns Davis full marks in our list of the best dressed stars.
#4. Taraji P. Henson
The Hidden Figures star looked fierce and flawless in a custom Alberta Ferretti dress and diamond studded jewelry by Nirav Modi. Easily one of the best dressed stars at the 2017 Oscars, Henson’s eye-catching Jimmy Choos and thigh-high slit definitely turned a few heads!
#5. Priyanka Chopra
Chopra dared to bare all in a structured dress designed by Ralph and Russo. Adding a modern twist on the traditional look, the Baywatch beauty showed off her hourglass figure, while sporting 60 karats worth of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds! She sure shined!
#6. Chrissy Teigen
Not surprisingly, the supermodel and Cravings author ranked among the best dressed celebrities at the Oscars again this year. Her beautiful Zuhair Murad dress was accentuated by flattering chandelier earrings and a thigh-high slit.
#7. Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel looked drop dead gorgeous in a risque figure-hugging gold dress from KaufmanFranco. The slinky beaded number complimented her perfect figure and the elegant Tiffany & Co. necklace made her look every inch the Hollywood royalty that she is.
#8. Brie Larson
The Room actress looked breathtaking in a black velvet Oscar de la Renta dress, accessorized with Neil Lane diamonds. The custom ruffled strapless number easily earned the Oscar winner a spot on the best-dressed list this year!
#9. Karlie Kloss
The Victoria’s Secret Angel stunned onlookers in a white cape dress by Stella McCartney. Kloss’ accessories included an ethereal choker from Nirav Modi and a clutch by Roger Vivier. The towering 6’2 beauty was definitely a vision in white!
#10. Nicole Kidman
Kidman ranked among the best dressed at the Oscars, as she looked graceful in an opalescent Armani Prive dress. The body-hugging dress complimented the Lion actress’ frame perfectly and a pop of bright red lipstick completed the look.
#11. Hailee Steinfeld
The Edge of Seventeen star looked beautiful in an ethereal Ralph & Russo dress, which won brownie points for its flattering neckline and sheer skirt. Although the curious back ruffle didn’t have many takers, the talented actress carried herself with grace and style.
#12. Janelle Monae
The Hidden Figures star’s eye-catching Ellie Saab dress made jaws drop at the Academy Awards this year. Donning one of the boldest looks of the night, Monae looked fabulous in a larger-than-life black and silver ball gown, which made heads turn wherever she went. Admitting that sitting in the car was no easy feat, she jokingly confessed, “I’m an android and I have secret ways of getting in places smoothly.”
Worst Dressed Celebrities at the Oscars 2017
#1. Dakota Johnson
In a surprising turn of events, the Fifty Shades Darker star opted for a full-sleeved matronly looking Gucci dress. The high neckline and bustle on the front of her dress did nothing for the actress, making her look like someone who escaped from the 19th-century. The gold dress was definitely a departure from Johnson’s fire engine red dress at the 2015 Oscars.
#2. Felicity Jones
No doubt, the Inferno star has some killer acting chops. She also portrayed one of the boldest female characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Unfortunately, the English actress opted for an unflattering A-line Dior gown that looked dull and pale against her complexion, landing her on the worst dressed list at the Oscars. Better luck next time!
Other contenders for the worst-dressed Oscar celebs were Ginnifer Goodwin, Leslie Mann, and Olivia Culpo.
