Best and Worst Dressed at the Oscars


Sally Field, ageless AND age-appropriate in Valentino.


Halle Berry, risk-taking perfection in Versace.


Nicole Kidman shows the younger generation how to do glamour right in her Balenciaga gown.


Jennifer Aniston couldn’t go wrong in this stunning red Valentino gown. This is what I would wear at the Oscars: something glamorous and appropriate yet comfortable and simple, so she gets my best-dressed award.


Charlize, you’re just hot, and you’d look great in anything, but this Christian Dior gown was a fabulous choice.

Disappointingly, no major celebrities wore vintage at the Oscars Sunday night; it must be too seductive having designers like Valentino and Oscar de la Renta offering you free couture gowns. In lieu of my annual “Vintage at the Oscars” post, here are my picks for best and worst dressed:


Kristen Stewart was a hot mess, and so was her ill-fitting Reem Acra gown.


An attempt at glamour gone terribly wrong: Catherine Zeta-Jones in Zuhair Murad.


The color, the wrinkles…and don’t even get me started on the darts on this Prada dress that made Anne Hathaway’s nipples look like they were going to attack someone. Worst-dressed!


Jennifer Garner’s Gucci gown did nothing for her body: her boobs were non-existent and her stomach stuck out.


Sunrise Coigney looked inappropriate and just plain bad in this Zero + Maria Cornejo dress.

About Elisa Casas

ELISA CASAS (that’s me) was born and raised in New York City. I have a BFA in Photography from NYU and worked as a photojournalist and talent scout for major record labels before opening Chelsea Girl in 1993. I also owned Laurel Canyon Vintage, Clutch! and a popular cafe, City Girl Cafe, and I starred in the groundbreaking Sundance series, “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys” with my best friend, David Munk. I like pomegranates, clouds, “Exile on Main Street,” birthdays, ancient ruins, the beach, abstract art, cypress trees, “Annie Hall,” old diamonds, Almodovar, clam shacks, surprises, Anne Boleyn, popcorn, “Rebecca,” margaritas, pugs, apple pie and castles in Spain. I live in TriBeCa with my fashionable daughter, Ruby. Follow Chelsea Girl on Facebook- and Instagram-ChelseaGirlVintage
