The fashion at Sunday night’s Academy Awards, the most relevant of all the irrelevant awards shows, was as tasteful and blandly elegant as expected. Charlize Theron looked gorgeous in red, Kerry Washington dared to be different in leather, and Best Supporting Actress winner Alicia Vikander killed it as the Oscars version of Belle. Many of the A- and B-listers let loose but not too much at the official Vanity Fair Party, where Taylor Swift and (moreso) Lorde donned the perfect “kill me” teen expressions, and which served as date night for the Timberlakes.

Emily Ratajkowski basically wore a swimsuit with fabric underneath it. Sanaa Lathan is stunning but that doesn’t have much to do with her dress, and Gabrielle Union looks like she’s about to fuck somebody up so gracefully. This counts as a reserved look for Kate Upton.

The cool girls in black: Vanessa Hudgens, Taylor Swift’s Madame Tussaud’s wax figure and Lorde, who’s my savior. Swift’s haircut was the best decision she’s ever made in life.

All these ladies look amazing, but Jessica Alba looks the most HONESTly comfortable. Elizabeth Banks’ oversized pants with the top is a great combo and Sofia Vergara appears abnormally cinched yet breathtaking as usual.

This may be the best Rebel Wilson has looked but I don’t pay much attention to her. Someone told me Daisy Ridley is in Star War. Now somebody tell me what’s going on with her dress. Zooey?

Not feeling the sleeves on this sheer look from Demi Lovato. Yellow pops perfectly on Marisa Tomei but the dress kinda bores. Adepero Oduye’s earth tone look is super regal. I’m figuring out whether I like Freida Pinto’s oversized belt.

Jeremy Renner seems lost: “Where’s the exit?” Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek is one of the few dudes who consistently tries. Anthony Mackie is your neighborhood auto salesman.

Sofia Vergara’s dress is actually really cool; it’s made of like a textured burlap-esque material. In any case, better than her actual Oscar dress.
