Last night was the 89th airing of the coveted Academy Awards. Discover who made The Mod Little Melanin's Best Dressed and Worst Dressed List by reading below!
The Best Dressed
Taraji P. Henson
To all the ladies in the place with style and grace, Taraji's look was my favorite of the night! Velvet has been a popular texture this season, and Taraji pulls it off well in this timeless Alberta Ferretti custom gown. Her simple, yet stunning accessories pull the look together effortlessy.
Twenty-four year old supermodel, Karlie Kloss stunned in her white caped Stella McCartney gown. She accessorized her gown with the addition of blue ALCU ribbon, publicaly denouncing President Trump's travel ban.
Your clothing should speak for you, without you speaking for your clothing. Janelle Monae's Elie Saab gown did just that. Traditionally dawning a pantsuit at most award shows, Monae and her stylist opted to stun the masses in a gown that was absolutely suitable for Janelle Monae's first Oscar appearance. Moonlight, in which she plays the role of Teresa, cleaned up big as it won Best Screenplay and Best Picture.
The Worst Dressed
Part ugly curtains hanging in your grandmother's house, part Little House on the Prairie , Dakota Johnson's gown was a lose-lose situation. Perhaps it would look better if it did not come with a matching gold, metallic apron. Dakota Johnson is wearing Gucci.
I am not a fan of high low dresses, but this gown had potential. But like her gown, that potential trailed far behind at the end of her train. Naomei, if you need a stylist for next year's show, shoot me an email. Naomei is wearing Calvin Klein.
Michelle Williams has such stunning natural beauty, and I would have loved to see her in a gown that did not wash her out. The cut of the top looks as if it were thrown together last minute, and the skirt looks as if that it should have elastic at the waist. To me, her couture gown looks reminiscent of a bathing suit with a skirt thrown over top as a cover up to get to the bar at the end of the night. It's a no for me. (She too needs a new stylist. A jewel tone gown would have looked amazing on her.) Michelle is wearing Louis Vuitton.
