I know what you’re thinking. We’re not supposed to care about this shit. We’re supposed to want to ask actresses more intriguing questions and not even dare mention the glamorous dresses and dashing suits that Hollywood’s elite don on the red carpet. But god dammit, I love awards show fashion.
I’m a big advocate for asking women more questions in addition to what they’re wearing, but I say if you’re dressed in head-to-toe designer fashion at a formal event, we’re allowed to talk about your clothes a little. However, in the interest of positivity and progress, I have chosen to exclusively compile a list of bests.

Look, the fashion is not the end all be all of the Academy Awards. It’s about the performances. It’s about the films. It’s about Chris Rock completely obliterating Hollywood.
But it’s also about the fashion, at least a little.
