Miley Cyrus in Saint Laurent at the VF Oscar party: too much or lovely?


Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth made it to the Vanity Fair post-Oscar party. Miley wore this beautifully constructed Saint Laurent. I love how the different directions of the sequins give the illusion of different fabrics. I also like the draping around the faux knot at the waist. I‘m not a fan of plunging necklines, especially when the dress has a dramatic slit up the thigh, but her awesome Bvlgari necklace is so beautifully showcased. I love the rest of her styling as well. She’s got a ‘70s Halston vibe with the loose waves. Liam looks good. He’s been sick so I’m glad he’s back on his feet.



Lily Collins wore this floral Marchesa to the VF party. It’s controversial to wear Marchesa and women know that they’re silently supporting Harvey Weinstein’s ex, whose label was built through Weinstein’s threats and abuses. That said, this is still a pretty dress. I especially love the bodice with the drape and mismatched sleeves. Lily made a big splash last night by hanging on the Internet’s Favorite Boyfriend and new Calvin Klein undie model, Noah Centineo.

Chrissy Teigen also wore Marchesa, which I was not as fond of. The embroidery is beautiful, the feathery bits work, and the length is nice, but the wide-holed netting throws it off. The boa caplet effectively detracts from the sheer bodice. It also pulls focus from Chrissy’s bad hair. Husband John Legend’s pants are hemmed a little high but otherwise he looks great and I love his lapel accents.

Kerry Washington debuted a pixie cut last night, but her new look was overshadowed by this bad Schiaparelli dress. This is sheer, bland beige, it has tiered ruffles and it’s so bad. The white rope belt makes no sense, and the structured corset is the worst. She’s not even wearing a necklace. Her earrings are the only saving grace.

Renee Zellweger wore a black crepe A.W.A.K.E dress and black ankle strap heels. I like the classic simplicity of her look and styling and am jealous of her emerald statement ring. The neckline and short hair are giving her a beautifully elongated neck. I really dislike those sleeves though. They remind me of the surgical sleeve guards.

    I don’t know how these ugly Marchesa dresses are even worth all the justifications you would have to make to wear them. Shame. I liked both Chrissy and Lily but wearing Marchesa is a choice I am not OK with.

    • Mia4s says:

      Yeah it’s interesting that those Marchesa dresses are as ugly as the backstory of the brand. Yuck.

      Miley’s going to try for another reinvention apparently…I’m already tired.

      • ByTheSea says:

        I think this is Liam’s preferred look. This was how she looked before the cultural appropriation of black culture.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        It’s most likely Miley’s preferred look too. It’s subdued compared to other things we’ve seen from her over the past couple of years, but it is the type of look that she gravitated to and that initially started getting her in all the troubles before she went extra in-your-face with it, and before the cultural appropriation.

    • mycomment says:

      do they have any choice of selection; or just delivered these rejects the day of. they all must be free offerings… but still.

      ugh.. the leg thing. enough already.
      and how soon before some ‘daring’ fashionista just turns up in nipple tape.

  2. tempest prognosticator says:

    Renee! I’ve missed you!

    • Kitten says:

      She looks great here I think. I actually don’t mind the sleeves.

      • Esmom says:

        I agree. She’s lovely from head to toe. So often she would get her hairstyle wrong on the red carpet but this time she nailed it. I really like her so it was nice to see her make an appearance.

      • Veronica S. says:

        They look better draped. It looked odd with her hands on her hips, but once they were sitting where they should, it flowed together.

    • jan90067 says:

      Reneé looks gorgeous; wouldn’t change a thing. She looks like herself again!

      Kerry seems way too thin now; I almost didn’t recognize her. Hope she’s not been ill. And that dress is awful!

      Miley looks very nice. That necklace is to die for. I would’ve left off the rings; they compete with the necklace, and it’s hard to see them over the finger tats.

      Chrissy looks lovely (hair and face), but that dress is a BIG NO. Same for Lilly. NO MARCHESA! HOW can ANY woman support that line is beyond me.

  3. Sassbr says:

    What’s the deal with Miley’s hair, it always looks a little limp or greasy to me. Does she style au natural, like no heat?

  4. NotHeidisGirl says:

    What’s with the Marchesa comeback???

    • otaku fairy... says:

      It seems like some women in Hollywood are going to believe Georgina Chapman was innocent and are making some kind of statement about separating her from Harvey’s behavior. It’s not a take I 100% support, but it doesn’t really bother me at this point either.
      Lily’s dress is ok, but the hair is not good.

  5. Lucy2 says:

    Both of those Marchesa’s are unshockingly bad. I would not want to wear the label now.
    Miley’s dress was OK, but her hair did not look good .

  6. xdanix says:

    I think Miley looks great. Definitely my favourite look out of this lot here. And the official portrait shot of her and Liam by VF’s photographer is STUNNING.

  7. Redgrl says:

    Stop stop stop the “slashed to the navel” look. It’s hideous. Glad to see Renee Z back – and she looks more like herself too, which is good…

    • Josephine says:

      I normally hate that look as well, but I think she looks good here. I was surprised to find myself liking it as much as I did. I think it can work if the rest of the dress is substantial enough and if one’s bits aren’t hanging out in an unflattering way. But I mostly agree that we can be done with this look!

  8. Slowsnow says:

    It must be because I’m on my period but all these women look tiny to me. Like, pocket-sized.w

  9. tuille says:

    Miley overdid the bracelets & rings, distracting from the necklace.
    I like Lily Collins’ low-key dress.
    What’s bad about Chrissie’s hair? I think it looks good here.
    Kerry is so beautiful & this dress is so fugly.
    Renee’s sleeves could land in her soup. Those, & trumpet/flared sleeves are impossible to eat in. They drag across the table.

  10. Chrissy’s dress is, to me, so Endora on Bewitched. It works for Endora, though.

  11. Lizzie says:

    miley looks gorgeous. that necklace is unreal

  12. Kitten says:

    Miley looks incredible. That dress is really cool–it’s young and sexy but classy and beautiful as well. The jewelry is just so stunning and after looking at the photos for a while, I actually don’t mind her hair. I usually hate that *wet look* but I think it’s well done here and compliments the structured and slightly edgy style of the dress.

    • The Other Katherine says:

      I agree. I’m fairly neutral about Miley as a celebrity (I frequently find her annoying due to a mixture of thirstiness and cultural appropriation; however, I appreciate her drive and her advocacy for LGBTQ rights), but I think she looks AMAZING here. I don’t usually go for the down-to-the-navel necklines, but this is how it should be done. The statement necklace is perfection.

  13. Cindy says:

    Kerry’s so pretty but god damn woman get another stylist. She’s always one of the worst dressed.

    Renee looks good and like herself. I like that haircut on her.

    Miley’s dress is great but I hate her hair.

    And Weinstein aside, Marchesa’s dress have always been awful and tacky. Just dont. Dont.

  14. Esmom says:

    I have always maintained that a pixie cut isn’t necessarily mom hair but Kerry managed to get a mom hair version. Not a fan.

    I wasn’t loving Miley’s dress until the last photo where she’s posing with her hands on her legs. Stunning.

  15. Other Renee says:

    Miley and Renee look absolutely fantastic. The rest are no’s for me. I don’t understand why Lily Collins is a big deal.

    • Sigh... says:

      “I don’t understand why Lily Collins is a big deal.”

      She cute/nice, but other than her dad, Phil Collins, SHE really has no presence/leaves no impression on me, either.

    • Kebbie says:

      Is she a big deal? I always thought of her as a less charismatic and less interesting Emma Roberts. Nepotism + not hideous = small acting roles and the occasional red carpet appearance

  16. Mrs. Peel says:

    Four words I’ll never repeat again “Miley for the win”. Rene looks great too, just wish the dress was a tad shorter, or full length.

  17. Veronica S. says:

    Miley’s dress would probably be more daring if Kristin Bell hadn’t done it within the last year or so. It takes a small chest to pull off without overwhelming, so it works. Not fond of the hair extensions, though.

    Chrissy Teigen’s styling is a miss up and down for me. The Marchesa is unflattering, and the hair is just wrong for the dress. (It needs to be up on such a busy outfit, right?)

  18. velourazure says:

    Renee needed some more jewelry, earrings? necklace?

  19. Lucy says:

    Miley’s new look accentuates how much she looks like her mom. Her dress is good, but I wish she had taken off one or two pieces of jewelry.

  20. TEAM HARDY says:

    Renee looks more and more like Jewell every time I see her…

  21. Grant says:

    I think Kerry kind of has Jennifer Hudson face. It’s like she lost too much baby weight too fast and now she looks a bit gaunt in the face.

  22. Natalia says:

    Kerry Washington is SO beautiful, but I have never seen her look so strange. The makeup is awful. Does nothing for her. Really detracts from her beauty. And the haircut: no. What’s with the weird pose, and that bodice! Ugh.

    • Ange says:

      Yes! She has the most beautiful lips and she didn’t have any lipstick on them?! Madness. It throws her whole look completely off.

  23. Pandy says:

    I’d kill to have Miley’s dress and look like they in it lol. Renee looks great too. Chrissy and the rest? Ugh. Even Chrissy’s hair looks unimpressed.

  24. TheOtherSam says:

    Lily Collins is ‘pretty as a picture’ as they say and her male pal (Noah!) is cute too, but shame about the dress. What possesses female celebs to continue to wear Marchesa? Like there aren’t a million other designers to wear on a big night like Oscar night. And don’t get me started on Chrissy T, she should know better than anyone.

  25. manda says:

    Shocked to see Miley doing the no shirt under a jacket thing again. Girlfriend should take out some stock in double sided tape.

  26. Carmen says:

    I love Kerry Washington’s pixie cut but that dress is fugly. I’ve said before and will say again, whoever dressed Olivia Pope should dress KW. Her style on the red carpet is consistently awful.

  27. Mama says:

    I’m just here to say I’m happy to see Renee!

  28. Haapa says:

    Between the two ladies in this post, and Gabrielle Union, I feel like the whole 90′s short hair thing is coming back.
