THIS. BALMAIN. DRESS. IS. SO. SHINY.

Michelle Yeoh sees your shiny outfit, Emilia Clarke, and she raises you metallic accents, a sequined bodice and exaggerated glam by Elie Saab.

Awkwafina looked at Emilia Clarke and Michelle Yeoh s sparkly outfits and said: What if I took away the glam, added a giant bow to a pantsuit, and made sure my shoes were nowhere to be seen?

It s not easy to make menswear fun, but Toronto s own Stephan James looks extra-dapper in this custom burgundy velvet three-piece suit from Italian designer Etro.

Thank you for trying to stand out, Linda, but... not like this.

Character actor Richard E. Grant (here with his daughter Olivia Grant) is nominated for the first time tonight. He s been positively delightful during the whole awards season, and this jacket is no exception.

Sorry, Gemma Chan, but this just looks like a less-successful imitation of J.Lo s "Second Act" premiere dress.
Jeff Kravitz via Getty ImagesGlenn Close
Best Actress hopeful Glenn Close is dressed as a caped Oscar statuette. Can you say the same, Lady Gaga?!
MARK RALSTON via Getty ImagesAngela Bassett
Angela Basset looks positively flawless in this custom Reem Acra gown, which is dramatic in the best possible way.

This is very pretty! But also very safe.

Honest question: Why have a host-free Oscars ceremony when Amy Poehler and this pantsuit are right here?
Frazer Harrison via Getty ImagesHannah Beachler
As the production designer for "Black Panther" and Beyoncé s "Lemonade," Hannah Beachler is one of the only people on Planet Earth who can pull this dress off.
MARK RALSTON via Getty ImagesHelen Mirren
There are lots of pink gowns tonight, some more successful than others. Helen Mirren, OBVIOUSLY, is on "flawless" list.
Steve Granitz via Getty ImagesMelissa McCarthy
Maybe this Brandon Maxwell outfit is what Awkwafina was going for? But again, why are the shoes M.I.A.?
Rick Rowell via Getty ImagesAmy Adams
Amy Adams is beautiful, and she s an incredible actress. But there s no way this outfit could get even a smidge more boring.

Just a stray thought: if your tulle is blocking your peripheral vision, your dress might have too much tulle.

This Rodarte dress strikes that delicate balance of being princess-y without being too fussy.

Will you sign our petition to make this Dior sash jacket the norm in men s fashion? Thanks in advance.

On a night with so much pink and so many exaggerated features, Charlize Theron stands out in this stark blue Dior dress.

Well, this looks... severe.
MARK RALSTON via Getty ImagesRachel Weisz
The most divisive outfit of the night? We re still working out our feelings about this Givenchy latex and tulle combo.
Frazer Harrison via Getty ImagesJennifer Lopez
Remember when we thought Emilia Clarke s dress was shiny? How naive we were back then.
Jeff Kravitz via Getty ImagesKiki Layne
Another lovely and dramatic pink selection.
MARK RALSTON via Getty ImagesSarah Paulson
Well, this is... something... that she probably could have discussed with Gemma Chan and Linda Cardellini.
Steve Granitz via Getty ImagesLady Gaga
It s a weird night when Lady Gaga (in Alexander McQueen, no less!) makes one of the most restrained outfit choices.

Do you think Oscar attendees have vision problems as a result of all that shininess?
