Who wore what (and WTF?) at the 90th annual Academy Awards.

BEST: Laura Dern

The Big Little Lies star shows why less is more in this white Calvin Klein couture number.

BEST: Jane Fonda

It's hard to believe Jane Fonda is 80. Just let that sink in. Iconic.

BEST: Gina Rodriguez

THIS is how you do sexy at the Oscars.

BEST: Eiza Gonsalez

Simple and sexy.

WORST: Salma Hayek

It's nice to see Salma in something colourful and floaty, but I just can't fall for this purple gown - even if she is wearing $4m in diamonds.

WORST: St Vincent

I can't really fault St Vincent for sticking to her signature aesthetic, but, I can't defend it either.

BEST: Mary J. Blige

This awards season has been her best and this Armani Prive dress is divine.

BEST: Helen Mirren

Helen is a goddess. Simple.

BEST: Zendaya

At 21, she's already an Oscars veteran and this Giambattista Valli gown is proof.

BEST: Margot Robbie

Margot nails it in Chanel, as usual.

BEST: Nicole Kidman

Arguably the best dressed of the night: this Giorgio Armani gown is the best kind of colourful surpise.

WORST: Camila Alves

Even her breathtakingly beautiful can't distract from this ill-fitting pseudo wedding dress.

BEST: Viola Davis

Who knew head to toe pink sequins would be so inspirational?

WORST: Emma Stone

I liked this Louis Vuitton combination, but I seem to be in the minority on this one, so I'm going with the public vote.

BEST: Jennifer Garner

Long time no see for Jennifer Garner and it's so worth it for this. She is an absolute vision.

WORST: Emily Blunt

I want to like this, I do. But this Victorian style tulle neckline makes it hard.

BEST: Lupita Nyong'o

I can't think of one time that Lupita has taken even the slightest step wrong. Instantly iconic.

BEST: Saoirse Ronan

It's a very modern take on Audrey Hepburn - I can't help but feel it's the type of dress we'll be considering iconic in 20 years.

WORST: Jennifer Lawrence

There's nothing really wrong with this dress, but it feels boring. The hair is flawless though.

BEST: Gal Gadot

Fringe metallics? Yes please.
