The Oscars 2023 was a star-studded affair. The 95th edition of the annual awards show was held on March 12, 2023, Sunday at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. This year, the Academy Awards were hosted by late-night talk show host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel.
Many celebs brought their A-game to the Oscars 2023, meanwhile, a few of them failed to give us the classy red carpet looks. Read on to know the names of the 10 worst-dressed stars at the Academy Awards.
Who were the worst-dressed celebs at the Oscars 2023?
1. Florence Pugh
We all love Miss Pugh, but not her 2023 Oscars look! For the 95th Academy Awards, the Don’t Worry Darling actress decided to wear an outfit by Valentino. The actress styled by Rebecca Corbin-Murray wore a contrasting black and champagne dress from the Spring 2023 Couture Collection of the fashion house.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Florence’s Oscars outfit was a tad bit complicated. It had a lot of things going on from a gathered strapless bodice, to exaggerated puff sleeves, and a high and low silhouette, which falls into a floor-sweeping train.
2. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
Dwayne Johnson popularly known as ‘The Rock’ decided to match with the champagne carpet at this year’s ceremony. For the 2023 Oscars, he opted for a different look by Dolce & Gabbana. His pink dinner jacket had a sheen finish.
The Black Adam star’s pink tux which also featured a matching boutonnière didn’t do him any favors. It reminded us of a 90s prom look instead of an outfit of a superstar from the Oscars. He completed his look with a pair of black pants and a black bowtie.
3. Elizabeth Banks
On most days, Elizabeth Banks has her fashion game on point, but unfortunately, this look is an exception. On Sunday night, the Cocaine Bear actress dolled up in a black-and-white ensemble for the Oscars.
In the last couple of years, we have seen many elegant black and white outfits at the Academy Awards, but Banks’ Oscars look was a flop show. She donned a dramatic two-toned, voluminous gown for the event.
At one point, during the awards show, the Hollywood actress even tripped as she walked on stage to present the award for Best Visual Effects. Soon after, she joked around and announced the nominees.
4. Allison Williams
Allison Williams knows how to nail red carpet looks but her 2023 Academy Awards look was not stunning. For the latest awards, she chose to look pretty in pink. The frilly parts of her dress left several peeps scratching their heads.
The M3gan star opted for a giant dress as a jacket at the Oscars. Her outfit was from the fashion house Giambattista Valli. Her outfit was simply a flower-encrusted dress with another fluffy dress over it as a jacket. Her boyfriend Alexander Dreymon accompanied her to the Oscars and the two lovebirds looked happy in love.
5. Rooney Mara
This year, Rooney Mara’s Oscars look was a let down. The Nightmare Alley star stepped out for the 2023 Oscars in a white ensemble. In the snaps from the event, she can be seen in an awkward white dress by Alexander McQueen.
On the other hand, when we talk about her makeup, it didn’t add much to her overall look. She pulled her back in a low bun. She topped off her look with a pair of matching white sandals.
6. Lenny Kravitz
The pop giant Lenny Kravitz has a great sense of fashion but this time he didn’t quite hit the mark! The Are You Going to Go My Way crooner who hit the 2023 Oscars stage during the “In Memoriam” segment brought some rocker vibes to the awards.
For the Academy Awards, Leonard Albert Kravitz popularly known as Lenny Kravitz didn’t opt for the tux instead he went for a ’70s-inspired silk jumpsuit.’ His Saint Laurent ensemble consisted of a plunging silk top which put his toned chest on display, and wide-legged trousers with a wide cummerbund.
The 58-year-old fashion icon completed his all-black ensemble with a pair of pointy black boots, black sunglasses, a couple of silver chains, and a large silver crucifix.
7. Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria is another celebrity who attended the Oscars 2023. On Sunday night, the Desperate Housewives star was a presenter and she brought glitz, and glam to the Academy Awards.
For the 95th edition of the Oscars, the Hollywood actress decided to don a sheer white lace dress with a low plunge neckline and lots of crystals by Zuhair Murad. The gown may have been a perfect choice for a disco party but not the Oscars.
8. Zoe Saldana
We know that jewels can add a lot to a dress but even shiny jewelry wasn’t enough to make Zoe Saldana’s nightgown look Oscar-worthy. The color of the Avatar star’s dress didn’t go well with the unique tone of the carpet perfectly. She styled her look with a beautiful necklace and a pair of earrings. She completed her outfit with a white bag.
9. Melissa McCarthy
The two-time Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy wore a fluffy red gown with dramatic sleeves at the 2023 Oscars. The Little Mermaid actress’ vibrant red gown featured a full tulle bottom.
When we put some light on her hairdo, the comedian who has starred in films like Tammy, The Boss, Life of the Party, and Superintelligence wore her hair up in a classic up-do and went for a soft makeup look.
10. Mindy Kaling
Mindy Kaling’s white outfit didn’t make a fashion statement. For the Oscars, The Office alum wore a white Vera Wang gown. Her structural spaghetti-strap gown which had an illusion bodice along with those flaps at the waist and long bell sleeves was a big fail.
The Hollywood actress topped off her look with a pair of dangling earrings and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. She went for a sleek hairdo and simple makeup.
