Did you catch the Oscars 2023? It was such a glamorous event with all the big names from the entertainment industry gracing the occasion. The 95th edition of the awards ceremony was held on a Sunday, March 12, 2023, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, and it was hosted by the famous late-night talk show host and comedian, Jimmy Kimmel.
While some celebrities brought their fashion A-game to the Oscars, a few of them didn’t quite hit the mark when it came to the red-carpet looks. If you’re curious to know who missed the mark and ended up on the list of the 10 worst-dressed stars at the Academy Awards, keep reading!
1. Florence Pugh
We all adore Miss Pugh, but her outfit at the 2023 Oscars was quite disappointing. The Don’t Worry Darling actress chose to wear a Valentino creation for the 95th Academy Awards. Styled by Rebecca Corbin-Murray, Florence donned a black and champagne dress from the Spring 2023 Couture Collection of the fashion house.
It’s safe to say that Florence’s Oscars ensemble was a bit complex. The outfit had several elements going on, including a gathered strapless bodice, exaggerated puff sleeves, and a high-low silhouette that flowed into a floor-length train.
2. Elizabeth Banks
Elizabeth Banks usually nails her fashion choices, but unfortunately, her look at the Oscars was a miss. The Cocaine Bear actress opted for a black-and-white ensemble for the event on Sunday night.
We’ve seen some stunning black and white outfits at the Academy Awards in recent years, but Banks’ look didn’t quite hit the mark. She wore a dramatic, two-toned voluminous gown that didn’t quite make the cut.
3. Allison Williams
Allison Williams is usually a style icon, but her look at the 2023 Academy Awards was a bit of a letdown. The M3gan star decided to go for a pink ensemble for the event, but unfortunately, the frilly parts of her dress left many scratching their heads.
She opted for a dramatic dress-as-a-jacket combo at the Oscars, wearing an outfit from the fashion house Giambattista Valli. Her outfit was a flower-encrusted dress paired with another fluffy dress worn over it as a jacket. While her boyfriend, Alexander Dreymon, accompanied her to the event, the couple’s lovey-dovey appearance on the red carpet couldn’t distract from the fashion misstep.
4. Rooney Mara
Rooney Mara’s usual impeccable fashion sense fell short at the 2023 Oscars. The Nightmare Alley star opted for a white ensemble for the event, but unfortunately, her choice left something to be desired. She was photographed in an awkward white dress by Alexander McQueen.
In addition to her underwhelming outfit, her makeup didn’t quite elevate her overall look either. She pulled her hair back into a low bun and completed her look with a pair of matching white sandals. Overall, Rooney’s appearance at the Oscars this year was a bit of a letdown.
5. Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria graced the 2023 Oscars as a presenter, bringing her usual glitz and glamour to the event. However, her outfit choice for the evening left something to be desired.
The Desperate Housewives star opted for a sheer white lace dress by Zuhair Murad, featuring a low plunge neckline and lots of crystals. While the dress may have been a hit at a disco party, it didn’t quite fit the bill for the Oscars.
Despite the questionable fashion choice, Eva still looked stunning as she confidently took the stage to present an award at the 95th edition of the Academy Awards.
6. Zoe Saldana
Zoe Saldana’s Oscars look was a bit of a miss. Although the actress donned some gorgeous jewels, it didn’t seem to elevate her nightgown-style dress. The color of her dress didn’t complement the carpet very well either. To accessorize, she added a stunning necklace and a pair of earrings, and carried a white bag to complete her outfit.
7. Melissa McCarthy
Melissa McCarthy, known for her remarkable comic timing, made a statement at the Oscars 2023 with her red carpet outfit. The actress was seen in a voluminous, fluffy red gown with puffy sleeves. The dress had a full tulle bottom that added a dramatic flair to her appearance.
The Little Mermaid star complemented her dress with a classic up-do hairstyle, which added a touch of elegance to her overall look. Her hair was neatly pinned up, highlighting her stunning earrings. Melissa opted for a soft makeup look, which included a subtle pink lip color and a light blush.
8. Mindy Kaling
Mindy Kaling missed the mark with her fashion choice at the Oscars this year. The Office alum opted for a white Vera Wang gown, but unfortunately, it failed to make a statement.
The structural spaghetti-strap gown featured an illusion bodice and flaps at the waist, with long bell sleeves. While the design may have had potential, it ultimately fell short of expectations.
Mindy accessorized her look with a pair of dangling earrings and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. She kept her hair sleek and opted for a simple makeup look to complete her ensemble. Despite her lackluster outfit, Mindy still looked beautiful as she walked the red carpet at the Academy Awards.
