Worst Pouf: Zoe Saldana
Post By Duana
My friend Lara and I have a phrase when we think we might be overdressing. We remind each other that "It's not the prom". Which is a nice reminder that you don't have to wear ALL of the things all of the time.
But I recognize that the Oscars IS the prom. It is absolutely the most important day to wear the most outlandish or beautiful or crazy thing you can get away with, and know that there's literally no way to be overdressed.
So having said that, when you're able to wear whatever you want, whatEVER you want, or at least what your stylist will bully you into, why would you stand in a marshmallow, Zoe Saldana? I get playing with fashion. I do. And I get that sometimes when one crazy item is good, three is better. But honestly, though this seems extreme, she looks like nothing so much as those crocheted toilet-paper ladies. It's just...disconnected.
This girl has been KILLING fashion spreads for months - I just was expecting something....else.
But the colour is gorgeous. And she said she fell in love with it on sight. But it just seems so ...first time at the Oscars. She could KILL anything - something unusual, something like Kidman's 1997 chartreuse. And...it was this. And you know what it is? Zoe Saldana has waited a long time for her career to get traction. A long time to wear dresses like these to events. So I understand that this is what she chose.
I just hope she gets a second chance.
Lainey: I loved this from the waist up. But when I saw the pom pom party at the bottom, it was over.
