Scarlett Johansson in Oscar de la Renta at the VF party: cute or budget?

2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

For the life of me, I do not understand why Scarlett Johansson went to Oscar de la Renta’s designers and said “please make me two beige-y champagne gowns for the Oscars.” I halfway liked her Oscar look, but why did she go for such a similar vibe with her de la Renta party dress? And why that hideous rib tattoo? Why does ScarJo have such budget-looking tattoos in general? We’re never going to get the answers to these questions.

Ciara in Ralph and Russo. Pregnant and wearing lingerie to a party, why can’t your fave? Ciara is one of the most beautiful women in the world, so… she can do whatever she wants. But I’m not crazy about the lingerie look.

Lena Waithe in Richfresh. She posed with Ava DuVernay on the carpet, but I wonder if she met up with her rumored lover Cynthia Erivo inside??

Billie Eilish in Gucci. I mean… she looks better in this than in the boxy white Chanel she wore to the Oscars. I can’t believe she changed though, that seems off-brand!

Lily Aldridge also wore Gucci. I loved her archive Ralph Lauren gown at the Oscars, so this party dress is a disappointment. She came to the party with her husband Caleb Followill.

Maria Sharapova in Valentino, with her English boyfriend Alexander Gilkes. I dislike this look! The color is “bile” and the neckline is too conservative. Word around the tennis community is that Pova’s gonna retire this year – she hasn’t won a match in months, she’s had injury after injury and it appears that those drugs really were performance-enhancing after all., no surprise.

    I like Scarlett’s dress here better than the one she wore for the Oscars, it’s slightly more interesting. That tattoo ruins the look though. Sharapova looks like she’s wearing a neon circus tent (fitting for her career post doping exposure). She always has a terrible sense of style.

    • bros says:

      I dont even pay attention to tennis but it makes me so so happy that she was exposed for the cheater she is and that she hasnt won anything since. nail. coffin. Im so over Russian doping.

  2. Lightpurple says:

    The dress would look much, much better without that tattoo peeking through.

  3. MCV says:

    Why so many people wear better dresses to de after parties than the actual awards? I don’t get it.

    • Nuzzybear says:

      I think they get a lot more “advice” or pressure about the awards show gowns and they tend not to go with their gut or what they really love. Just a guess.

    • Originaltessa says:

      Maybe because they actually want to look better for the party? Not sure. If you’re going to do a bunch of networking, and mingling with all the stars, maybe the better look is the one you want to be wearing. Also the fashion houses don’t get as much pull. They’re more concerned with what’s in screen.

  4. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    Much like a few of you on here have mentioned guilty crushes on Diplo, I feel the same about Lena Waithe. That pic is giving me… tingles. And yes – I know she’s considered problematic!

    • Shirleygailgal says:

      I did not know she is considered problematic? Makes me sad. I loved her in “Ready Player One” as Haitch (“H”) her avatar vs her ‘real life’ character….brilliant!

      • Green Desert says:

        It comes from the set of her (excellent) show The Chi, which she created and for which she’s the showrunner. Jason Mitchell was an actor on that show, but he was an angry sexist POS. He put his female co-star through it. It pretty much came out that Lena knew about it, or at least some of it, but didn’t do anything for a long time. He was finally fired after season 2.

        I like her, she’s super talented and we obviously need more people of color, women, and LGBTQ people and voices in Hollywood to tell more diverse stories. So I hope she’s learned from it.

    • Snowslow says:

      OMG are you me?! Had exactly the same oops-she-hot kinda thing :-/

      • Lady Baden-Baden says:

        LOL @Snowslow – I’ve wondered before if you might be me! I almost always agree with your fashion opinions (and almost always disagree with Kaiser’s! Sorry Kaiser!)

      • Snowslow says:

        Shhhh LOL When I read Kaiser’s take on fashion I’m always so amused by how much I never agree with her ;-) And now it’s out in the open :-)

  5. Jen says:

    I think she likely asked for the dress to be designed around the tattoo. It’s a lovely piece! Rib tattoos HURT, and the amount of shading on that means it must have taken ages.

  6. Emily says:

    LOL Colin’s blank stare in the first picture. He looks so bored.

    • Cali says:

      His expressionless face is hilarious, that tattoo kills Scarlet’s look, couldn’t believe it was real until closer inspection, the dress is beautiful though and shes been looking great this awards season. I hate to admit it, but I like the doper’s neon green dress. Ciara, we get it, you’re sexy now put on some clothes please, this looks trashy.

  7. BANANIE says:

    If I had Pova’s money and figure I would be wearing a far prettier, more flattering dress.

  8. Valiantly Varnished says:

    This dress would be beautiful if it didn’t have that dumb cut out with the hideous tattoo sticking out. She really does have terrible tattoos. And I am not anti-tattoo. Just anti ugly tattoos.

  9. Jessica says:

    Budget! No, no, no, no, no, and no. Terrible all around.

  10. Michelle says:

    I have never cared for Ciara’s look. Always seems so thirsty. We get it. You have an incredible body and you want to let EVERYONE see it. How about shock us for once and wear something tasteful.

  11. Annika says:

    Good grief, when did she get all of those hideous tattoos? And WHY?
    Does she think she’s some kind of badass instead of the Woody Allen defending smug Manhattanite that she is?

  12. Kate says:

    Wow Ciara. Goddess

  13. Wilma says:

    Scarlett always looks tacky to me. I think it’s the way she poses and she always seems a bit shiny sweaty to me.

  14. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Poor widdle tennis player not winning chooses the color of tennis balls for inspiration. That tat on Scar is ridick (is she auditioning for something?). The preggers lingerie is so sad. I’m going to assume she’s trying to maintain a semblance of sex appeal while feeling beached whale-like, but come on, she’s gorge and could wear burlap. There’s a lot of psyche analyses I could throw Billie’s way, she’s beautiful btw, but I won’t. I’ve been there. Not in public of course lol.

  15. ab says:

    I kind of love Scarlett’s dress, which is surprising me because I tend to hate cutouts. This one is kind of cool with the bandeau holding up the satin. I like her tattoo but I also think it ruins the look. I always think if I went to one of these fancy events I would probably cover some of my tattoos so they wouldn’t compete with the visual.

    Ciara is otherworldly gorgeous but that “dress” is just some sequined mesh over a onesie and does nothing for her.

  16. MellyMel says:

    I always forget how many tattoos ScarJo has. And yes they look budget. I have tattoos myself so I’m not anti, but with her money she could afford the best in LA or NYC and hers looks like they were done at some sketchy place in the middle of nowhere. Anyways…I hate all these looks except Lily’s. I think she looks really pretty.

  17. LP says:

    I feel for Billie Eilish- I think she’s said before she wears baggy crazy clothes to keep people from commenting on her body. If I started out underage and only just turned 18 I’d feel the same way! (I’m still mad at her tone deaf comments about rap but this, I sympathize with.)

  18. SJR says:

    Colin Jost looks like a life sized Ken doll in that pic.
    He makes me think of a Walmart version of Chevy Chase.

  19. Janiet says:

    Scarjo is tacky looking because she’s a tacky person. But, she’s sexy hot and men like that kind of trashy vibe. And Scarjo ALWAYS plays to the male gaze. It’s the only thing she really cares about. I get what they see in her, but i can’t say i’m impressed one way or the other. It’s a look. She’s entitled to work it.

  20. Tiffany says:

    Colin’s permanent look is uncomfortable. I have not seen one photo where there is not the case. Even in motion he is the same.

  21. BellaBella says:

    Why would anyone get a dress that highlights their hideous tattoo, which competes with the dress? Scarlett has some baffling taste in clothes.

  22. PALady says:

    Not a fan of her open mouth-lolita-sexy ingenue shtick.

  23. Erin says:

    Sharapova’s dress is tennis-ball green! That is toooooo funny.

  24. MsIam says:

    I like Scarlett’s dress the best but yeah the tattoo is a big detraction. As for the others, nope. And Ciara just looks like she draped sparkly fabric over a body suit and called it an outfit.
