Red Carpet Recap

THE event of Awards Season took place under rainy skies in Los Angeles last night. So naturally we have to join in the national pastime of naming our Best and Worst dressed from the Oscars. We had a hard time this year because overall, the A-listers looked great. No one really stood out as the clear cut winner, and conversely, everyone seemed to avoid total fashion disaster. But we’re not afraid to make the tough choices, so here are our haute hits and hot messes from the red carpet.

“French artist Levalet (formerly Charles Leval), looks at everyday urban settings and sees artistic potential. His paste-ups blend humor with a bit of starkness to create something both unexpected and totally at home in the heart of Paris.” Scott G.
