Whether it was Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue in which he took shots at the GOP and Harvey Weinstein, or the Mamba himself, Kobe Bryant, actually winning an award, the Oscars 2018 had plenty of talking points.

Of course, all eyes were on the red carpet and what the stars wore to the event. While most opted for the safe suit or ball gown outfit, others were a little bit more out there with their fashion choices.

Some will argue that there’s not much you can do with a suit, and that arriving at the Oscars in anything else calls for the fashion police to perp walk you down the red carpet. Others, though, like Timothée Chalamet and Daniel Kaluuya, challenged that myth and most definitely came out on top.

So, without further ado, here are the best, worst, and most WTF ’fits from the 2018 Oscars ceremony.


Timothée Chalamet and his all-white tuxedo

The 22-year-old American actor, who was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role, graced the red carpet with a fitted Berluti tuxedo and bow tie. After popping up at various Fashion Weeks and rocking the likes of OFF-WHITE, Chalamet has proven once again that he knows what he’s doing.

Daniel Kaluuya goes for gold

The Get Out star might have been snubbed for the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, but that didn’t stop Kaluuya from going for gold on the red carpet. His bold choice in color stood out and showed that you don’t have to stick to the tried and tested black suit, white shirt combo.

Rita Moreno and her recycled dress

Moreno was a sight to behold in a black and gold dress. She first wore it in 1962 and, arguably, looked better in it the second time.

Sufjan Stevens and his Gucci jacket

Nobody had a more eye-catching fit than Sujan Stevens. The singer played a song from Call Me By Your Name  while wearing a purple and pink pinstripe Gucci blazer that featured dragon embroidery. It was a bold choice but it definitely paid off.

Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita Nyong'o and Daniel Kaluuya must have coordinated outfits before the event, and it’s definitely a coin toss as to who rocked gold better. Our money’s on Nyong’o though.

James Ivory and his Chalamet-inspired shirt

The Call Me By Your Name writer celebrated the success of his film by wearing the movie’s star, Timotheeé Chalamet, on his shirt. Ivory managed to avoid making it looking too creepy and showed some of the younger guys what style really is in the process.

Chadwick Boseman and his embroidered jacket


The Black Panther star was predictably looking fresh last night, rocking an embroidered Givenchy dinner coat and all-black shoes, pants, and shirt.

Most WTF

Adam Rippon and his BDSM-inspired attire

The American figure skater took to the red carpet in the most interesting fashion choice of the evening, which consisted of a harnessed suit jacket. The BDSM-inspired, leather get-up was definitely out there but Rippon (somehow) made it work. The only question is, why?

Agnes Varda in head-to-toe Gucci

The film director, who was also the oldest Oscar nominee at 89, was draped in a flowery Gucci robe, cardigan, and pants. While seeing a nearly 90-year-old in head-to-toe Gucci is definitely WTF, we’re definitely very here for it.


Salma Hayek’s purple dress

Apparently Hayek was wearing $4 million in diamonds, however, not even that could save her dress, which looked like she was wearing several layers of curtains.

Emma Stone

Emma Stone made a conscious choice to dress down for last night’s red carpet. Unfortunately for the actress, it didn’t pay off. Her blazer and bowtie ended up looking too casual for the occasion.
