Sienna Miller in Oscar de la Renta at the Oscars: beautiful or boring?

Sienna Miller

Sienna Miller‘s big return to Hollywood landed on the Oscar red carpet last night. This could have been a stunning moment, but I feel like she played it too cautious. It’s hard to blame her for being gunshy given her past life as a messy starlet. Sienna opted for a midnight blue Oscar de la Renta dress with embroidery detail and black, belted bows. This isn’t a bad dress, but it doesn’t scream Academy Awards. This is a dress one wears when they want to go unnoticed. It worked. Sienna even downplayed her hair and makeup. Her trademark messy bob could have made for an interesting contrast, but no.

Here’s some bonus Tom Sturridge and Robert Pattinson at the Vanity Fair party. Sparkles looks dapper. Is Tom’s fly coming undone?



Chris Pratt and Anna Faris did their adorable couple dance together. Anna wore a Zuhair Murad couture gown that was fully encrusted in all manner of beads, sequins, and flotsam. I remain amazed at how Anna can choose gowns from any given designer and still look the same. She loves white and beige.

Channing Tatum walked the red carpet with wife Jenna Dewan. Jenna dressed it up in this Zuhair Murad with suprisingly few embellishments, which was nice. The runway version included a dramatic cape that would have been overkill as a +1 on the red carpet.

Zendaya Coleman wore a white satin Vivienne Westwood number. Z’s got a funky and youthful style, and this dress looks very cute on her, but the dreads look so heavy!

    I really wish Anna Farris would change her hair color.

    I think Sienna looked lovely. But Pattinson in that blue suit looks even lovelier. Very dapper indeed.

    • Kitten says:

      My first thought as well–that shade of blonde is all wrong with her skin color.
      It’s so harsh and unflattering.

    • Kiddo says:

      + a million.

      • QQ says:

        Yes That Hair Color is THE WORST for her it ages her like nobody’s business and I don’t know why she continues with it

    • Tig says:

      Totally agree with you! Saw the pics of Robert P in that Dior tux, and hoped it would make it over here. He looks amazing.

      Is Tom Sturridge filming? Seems like he’s been bald/shaved head for a long time otherwise.

    • Greek Chic says:

      I thought Rita Ora had the worst hair color but Anna’s is even worse. It’s almost fluo yellow.Rita is following.

  2. Kaya says:

    Ooh, these are some really nice dresses! Everyone looks great!
    I wish Sienna had worn bigger earrings though. She DOES look too understated.
    And Anna Faris should have put her hair up! The bangs and dull waves make her look too underdone.

  3. Naddie says:

    Boring, at least she has a pretty face. Also, I think she looks real good with dark hair, like in G.I. Joe.

  4. Sienna’s dress is ugly. And I legit thought that she was Kate Beckinsale in the American Sniper trailers. I didn’t realize who she was until I saw the movie, lol.

  5. vauvert says:

    Jenna is beautiful but she has gone the JLo route here… Why the v- neck to the waist, yo? Too much! Would have looked great otherwise.
    Anna’s dress is blah and her hair even more so, but still like her and Chris, so there’s that. They are so cute together.
    Sienna is boring. I never got the fuss over her, why so many hot men went for her or anything. Big yawn. And same for Pattinson – what is the big deal?? He still looks half glazed over (or maybe this is his sexy look, eyes squinting), unshaven, pants too tight and hair artfully mussed. Maybe I am getting old… Like my men to be well groomed? Although then I should not be crazy about mighty fine Chris Pine. (Full disclosure, I have never watched anything with, about, or remotely related to vampires. Not even the one with Tom Cruise or the one with Hiddles. Hate vampires.)

  6. Ginger says:

    Every time I see Pratt I can’t help but to think about how he hunts for sport. I don’t care how adorable he is, what charities he does or how he’s a gentleman to his wife. He KILLS animals and enjoys skinning them. That cancels out everything for me. END RANT. Sienna looked beautiful but I also though it was kind of boring. Also, there seemed to be a trend amongst the men who wore blue suits instead of the standard black and I loved it!

  7. scout says:

    Sienna is a beautiful woman, dress is just okay and she looks like she sucking her cheeks in to look good! Not working but love her.

    Both couples look great and love Zandaya’s hair style, looks so cute.

  8. Gia says:

    Love Sienna – she will always be my girl crush she looks so gorgeous and classy. Jenna is another favorite. Her earrings are so beautiful. Anna Ferris is like an eye sore. Please be less shiny and bright and that dress looks like it’s eating her. Me no likey

  9. Dani2 says:

    Zendaya looks uh-may-zing. I love the dreads too. She looks so good.
    I think Sienna looks great, and she has like 6 movies coming out this year, it’s nice to see someone happy in their personal and professional life.

  10. Az says:

    I find ot funny how Sienna is tring to whitewash her homewrecker past.

    • MC2 says:

      I side eye the fact that she came out the “home wrecker” & it derailed her career for a while but the men don’t seem to get any flack for it? She was also very young then.

      • Corrie says:

        Totally agree. Bc we easily forget Jude, Daniel wrecked that home first. But why trash her for rediscovering herself and putting her best forward. She’s done a great job.

  11. boredblond says:

    Sienna’s dress was one of my least favorites..square neck with bows..huh? Vamp pinafore? Not wild about Anna’s look, but she and Chris look so relaxed and comfy on red carpet, it erases any negatives. I love that there’s a joy about them.

  12. AlmondJoy says:

    Zendaya doesn’t have dreads, they’re faux locs and they’re actually not as heavy as they look.

  13. Morse0412 says:

    I actually think the juxtaposition between the edginess of Zendaya’s hair and the softness of her dress was perfect. and she had a killer body for that dress. I think she was an understated win on the red carpet

  14. lila fowler says:

    Sienna’s dress was boring and basic but it’s fine–she wasn’t a nominee. I think lesser-knowns like Jamie Chung showing up in these big dresses when they barely have a good reason for being there is tacky. The night is for the nominees.

  15. Diana B says:

    Oh, I didn’t know my beautiful Rob went out to party last night. God, he looks hot!

  16. GlimmerBunny says:

    Anna Faris looks good, but I hate her bangs. Her husband is the best accessory ever though, my number one celebrity crush right now. Did you hear that the director of “The Imitation Game” confirmed on the red carpet that his next movie is “Passengers” with Chris and JEnnifer Lawrence? Can’t wait, I think they will have great chemistry together!

  17. serena says:

    I am really loving Jenna Dewan and Zendaya Coleman’s looks! They both look stunning!

  18. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I think the details on Sienna’s dress are lovely and feminine but don’t show up particularly well in photos.

  19. Joh says:

    Sienna did not want to draw attention to her new face.

  20. QQ says:

    Zendaya always is a BAD show and an ALMOST… in a good day… this was a Good day

    So ALMOST…

  21. Corrie says:

    Sienna’s dress… I agree even though i found her beautiful. She didn’t over-state it either.
    As for upstaging both Sienna and Tom… Robert Pattinson definitely did that. Wow, Rob in Dior looks great. He looks great for prime time.
    WE need to see him in more Studio big picture files. Great look. Im sure he was there for Eddie as well.

  22. Lucy says:

    My favorites are Chris and Anna (although not so much her full look), Rob (he’s sparkling but in a really good way) and Miss Zendaya!! I think she definitely has the Rihanna/Blanchett quality in that she can pull off just about everything she wears.

  23. Lucy says:

    Everyone here looks great but my favorites are Chris and Anna (although not so much her full look), Rob (he’s sparkling but in a really good way) and Miss Zendaya!! I think she definitely has the Rihanna/Blanchett quality in that she can pull off just about everything she wears.

    Does anyone know anything about the validity of Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse’s relationship?

  25. Abby says:

    I like all of these dresses!
