How Boring Were Last Night's Oscars Looks?

By Max Kessler
Simon Doonan, writing for Slate, summed up his frustration with (in my opinion) the utter snore that was last night's red carpet fashion better than I ever could: "Is it fashion? No. Is it a parade of conventional prom dresses? Yes, I am rather afraid it is."

Speaking of Oscars looks: rumor has it that Anne Hathaway was supposed to wear a Valentino couture dress last night, but then saw that Amanda Seyfried wearing a similar-looking Alexander McQueen gown, freaked out, and had to do a mad dash to get a new dress.

Ryan Gosling is on the cover of GQ Australia. It looks identical to his other GQ cover, but it's Ryan Gosling so we'll take it. [via The Fashionisto]

To combat everyone looking boring, here's a spread in Numéro featuring Julia Frauche wearing high fashion in an airport terminal with some beast-like thing. I just woke up a little. [via Fashion Gone Rogue]

...And here's Jim Carey wearing giant feet to Elton John's Oscars afterparty! Now we're getting there! [via Go Fug Yourself]

Kenzo's new resort video by illustrator Mat Maitland is quite a trip and the most colorful thing we've seen all weekend. [via Press Release]

And, finally, a little bit of drama: After turning down $15,000 from DKNY to use his photos in their windows, Brandon Stanton -- the photographer of Humans of New York -- discovered that DKNY was using his photos anyway (just not in New York stores). Instead of asking DKNY to give him money, he's asking the company to donate $100,000 to the Bed-Stuy YMCA. [via Gawker]
