Best and Worst of the Oscars Red Carpet

And the final episode of the 2013 Red Carpet Extravaganza is here! Let's get right to it, shall we? You can see my commentary on everyone below, but I'll tell give you my top picks upfront.

Best Dressed: Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington, Jessica Chastain, Stacy Keibler
Worst Dressed: Melissa McCarthy, Anne Hathaway, Giuliana Rancic

What did you think?

Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta
Pretty, if a little too frothy. I wish it was brighter color, and that the hair wasn't so blah.


Adele in Jenny Packham
She looks very nice, but MAN, do I wish she'd change it up a little bit.


Jennifer Aniston in Valentino
YOU GUYS. She's wearing a color. Now, she needs to change up the hair.



Samantha Barks in Valentino
Sexy and simple. She kind of rocks it. Awesome necklace, but tragic hair.


Halle Berry in Versace
Krystle Carrington is going to be PISSED that Halle stole her dress.



Helena Bonham-Carter
Lusciously crazy. I hope she never changes.


Sandra Bullock in Elie Saab
I'm kind of tired of the black lace trend, but you can't deny that she looks pretty great.



Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive
It's a shame that this didn't photograph too well, because on TV, this was GORGEOUS. Here, it looks pale, but it was much deeper. I love this. She's nailed the Oscars two years in a row.


Jenna Dewan-Tatum
Very pretty. I wish Channing wasn't standing there so that I could see more of it.


Jane Fonda
She looks great, and YAY - BRIGHT COLOR!!


Jennifer Garner in Gucci
Gorgeous color. She always cleans up so nicely.



Anne Hathaway in Prada
She looks gorgeous from the necklace up, but the dress is disappointing. I hate satin, and that 90's neckline is really bad.


Salma Hayek
Crazypants.


Jennifer Hudson in Roberto Cavalli
She's killing in this dress. Seriously, she's never looked better, but I wish she was wearing different shoes.


Helen Hunt in H&M (!)
That's pretty awesome that she's wearing H&M. It's fairly standard and wrinkly but she looks nice. Could've used some lipstick.


Norah Jones
Pretty cool dress and earrings. The hair is not good.


Stacy Keibler in Naeem Khan
She looks pretty amazing.


Nicole Kidman in L'Wren Scott
One of my favorite looks on her, ever.


Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Couture
Pretty but boring. Looks like a wedding dress, which, YAWN.


Melissa McCarthy in David Meister
Tragic. Why would she wear a sack like this?


Maria Menounos
I like how the dress is bold and simple, but that hair. Yikes.


Olivia Munn
From the waist up: lovely. From the waist down: looks like she wrapped the theater curtains haphazardly around herself.


Kelly Osbourne in Tony Ward Couture
Pretty. I like how it's black but not basic.


Queen Latifah
She looks lovely but I wish it wasn't white.


Giuliana Rancic in Rafael Cennamo
Cheaply made, poorly fitted dress, and limp hair.


Kelly Rowland in Donna Karan Atelier
I want to like this more than I do. It's pretty fierce but it looks a bit too tight and I can't deal with the weirdness on her right boob. Good shoes and earrings, though.


Zoe Saldana
I could do without the belt, but this is a pretty great dress regardless.


Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen
Top Oscar trends: Messy hair and colorless gowns. Despite that, I do like the dress. The details are very pretty.


Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji
It's a very flattering dress but it's a bit too matronly and grandiose for her. She should sex it up a bit.


Kristen Stewart in Reem Acra
I'm not blown away but I'm kind of glad that she's wearing something not in her wheelhouse.


Charlize Theron in Dior Couture
Fabulous. She looks statuesque and beautiful, and she rocks a pixie like nobody else.


Quvenzhané Wallis
The CUTEST.


Kerry Washington in Miu Miu
Love. Fabulous color, and I love the jeweled bodice and little bow.


Naomi Watts in Armani Prive
It sort of looks like a sci-fi costume (very Mad Max-y), but it's pretty awesome.


Reese Witherspoon in Louis Vuitton
Fabulous hair. Good bodice on that dress, but from the waist down, it's a bunchy blob. Taffeta is the worst.


Catherine Zeta-Jones in Zuhair Murad
It's kind of over the top but she's killing it. Does she ever age?

Best and Worst of the SAG Red Carpet

It's round 2 of the 2013 Red Carpet Extravaganza. Let's see how the stars did, shall we?

Morena Baccarin:
Unflattering and ill-fitting.


Mayim Bialik:
I actually think she looks pretty awesome.


Alexis Biedel:
Pretty? I think? I wish I could see the whole thing.


Julie Bowen:
I've got to give a woman props for wearing a floor-length leather gown and not looking like a dominatrix. Or Cher.


Rose Byrne:
I appreciate that she takes risks, but this looks like a 70's nightgown.


Jessica Chastain:
Pretty, but too tight on her.


Marion Cotillard:
I was undecided on this for quite a while, but I think I've decided that I love it.


Kaley Cuoco:
I actually like this dress, even the awkward length. But those shoes are so wrong and that's the worst wig I've ever seen.


Claire Danes:
I like the detail in the slit of her dress, but I hate the bulky sleeve and sloppy hair.


Viola Davis:
Great color, great fit.


Nina Dobrev:
This would be perfect if it weren't for whatever that is cutting across her torso.


Michelle Dockery:
Elegant but a bit too plain. Shame about the wrinkles.


Carmen Electra:
This is the worst-constructed gown I've ever seen. It looks like it's about to fall apart.


Jenna Elfman:
Boooooring.


Tina Fey:
If she sneezes, the world is going to see her nipples.


Jenna Fischer: 
Zzzzzzzz.


Kate Flannery:
Wow. I never knew she had it in her!


Jennifer Garner:
She cleans up nicely, no?

Anne Hathaway:
Very disappointing. This is her year, she should be stepping it up.


Helen Hunt:
Fantastic.


Sarah Hyland:
Gorgeous dress, fabulous color. Shame about the hair.


January Jones:
THAT SHIT CRAY. I'm so happy that at least one person showed up looking insane.


Ellie Kemper:
Pretty color but too fussy. Terrible hair.


Nicole Kidman:
Hot!


Angela Kinsey:
This is kind of weird, but I kind of love it.


Jane Krakowski:
Nice, but I feel like I've seen her in this same dress a hundred times.


Jennifer Lawrence:
Okay, I guess? It fits her well but I find it kind of drab, to be honest.


Jane Lynch:
Unlike Julie Bowen's gown, this is kind of dominatrix-y. But you know what? She looks sort of awesome.


Juliana Margulies:
A world of NO.


Jayma Mays: 
Blah. It's colorless and makes her look much wider than she is. Hair looks like she's going to yoga class.


Maria Menounos:
I love this. It's striking in its simplicity.


Lea Michele:
Oh, is it prom season already? And that ombre hair is terrible.


Julianne Moore:
An interesting dress, but poorly fitted in the chest.


Elisabeth Moss:
I'm okay with a short dress for the SAGs, but this one is too casual and kind of blah.


Kelly Osborne:
Very pretty. I still hate her hair, but this is a very cool, Old Hollywood-style gown.


Jessica Pare:
Love it! And I love how she's totally honoring her show by channeling the 60's with her hair, makeup, and jewelry.



Busy Phillips:
Simple but cute.


Frieda Pinto:
Great color but way too much going on. It's unflattering.


Amy Poehler:
It's basic black, but she looks great.


Giuliana Rancic:
I love the color but I'm not crazy about the way it fits up top. Still, one of her best efforts that I can remember.


Naya Rivera:
Wrinkled and trashy. A shame.


Amanda Seyfried:
Despite my hatred of mermaid dresses, I think she looks gorgeous here.



Kiernan Shipka:
A-freaking-dorable. Seriously.


Jordin Sparks:
I love the blue, but this isn't the best fit for her. There's no shame in going up a size.


Julia Styles:
An okay gown ruined by a drab color. And I barely recognized her - has she had work done?


Sofia Vergara:
At least it's not her usual super-vampy look, but I can't say I'm crazy about it. It looks too bridal, and too cheap.



Kerry Washington:
Very pretty.


Naomi Watts:
She looks beautiful, but again: WHY NO COLOR?


Sigourney Weaver:
Just awful. It does nothing for her shape and makes her look flat as a board.


Ariel Winter:
Much too old for her, and again: colorless.
