Jennifer Lawrence looks like she borrowed the kind of dress I wear all summer long when I'm not at work. It looks as though it's made of jersey material and seems way to casual to be at the Oscars.

Selita Ebanks looks like my inner labia, and not in a good way.

HBC, per usual, looks like me in high school.

Naomi and Rosario look like they're going to go to Studio 54 when this is over.

Claire Danes, Luke Skywalker's Aunt Beru called: she wants her boxy white garment back.

Amanda Seyfried... really? That dress screams "half-dressed pirate hooker" to me, what with the ruffly shirt look.

Halle Berry, we get it "glamor meets wood nymph." We've seen this before on you.

Gwyneth, the Oscars aren't a theme party. You're not supposed to go as the statue.

The rest of you look marvelous.
