  • <em>Like:</em> <strong>Jessica Chastain</strong> KILLED it in her <strong>Alexander McQueen</strong> gown. Between the fit and the Edwardian influenced embroidery, this might be the gown of our dreams.

  • <em>Dislike:</em> Although we're liking the color choice of <strong>Melissa McCarthy</strong>, the overall cut of the gown doesn't truly show off her <em>assets</em> in the best light.

  • <em>Like:</em> <strong>Ellie Kemper</strong> went against the monochromatic grain and went for a copper <strong>Armani Privé</strong> gown. We have to say, we dig it -- <em>a lot</em>.

  • <em>Dislike:</em> This one may ruffle a few feathers, but <strong>Rooney Mara's</strong> dress simply swallows her. Between the ill-fit and the color washing her out, we have to say we much prefer her in her beloved black.

  • <em>Like:</em> Rocking the popular trend of the one-shoulder gown, <strong>Rose Byrne</strong> looks stunning in her black sequined <strong>Vivienne Westwood</strong> number.

  • <em>Dislike:</em> We loved <strong>Shailene Woodley </strong>in the <em>The Descendants</em> but her dress totally flopped. Between looking like she had to suck it in all the way down the red carpet, we can't think that would be very comfortable for her (or for us to look at).

  • <em>Like:</em> <strong>Bernice Bejo</strong> went with an <strong>Elie Saab</strong> beautiful mint 1940s inspired gown. We're obsessed with the sheer insets and how they balance the long-sleeve perfectly.

  • <em>Dislike:</em> Usually we're in love with <strong>Penelope Cruz</strong>, to the point we kind of want to<em> be</em> her, but this dress just didn't do it for us.

It’s been a pretty dramatic red carpet ride this Academy Awards. Between Sacha Baron Cohen destroying Ryan Seacrest’s Burberry custom suit live on camera to Rooney Mara in white, it’s been a jam-packed evening filled with some fierce fashion moments, leaving us (almost) forgetting that there are actually, you know, awards other than Best Dressed handed out at this thing.

Some of the biggest moments were surprisingly the lack of color seen during this Academy Awards. Leaving colors behind to award shows past, it seems that a chunk of the celebs went for a more minimal palette (for the most part) and instead played with silhouettes and fit.

We have to say, we commend these ladies who really stuck to what felt right and not trying to go too much out of their comfort zone. Click through our slideshow to see the best and worst dressed from this year’s Academy Awards.
