Red carpets are often full of hits and misses—there’s rarely an awards show where every attendee either nails it or bombs. But it is rare that a red carpet has so few standout looks that almost every single one is….OK. According to FLARE editors, this year’s Oscars red carpet was just that; it was as challenging to choose a look that *truly* delighted as it was to pick one that really disappointed from the sea of mostly mediocre fashion moments. But, we persevered! Here are the FLARE team’s personal choices for the best and worst dressed at the Oscars 2020.

Best dressed: Saoirse Ronan
There’s a LOT going on here—a full ball skirt, a fluted two-tone peplum, a plunging neckline—but somehow it all works together. The proportions of this Gucci dress are perfect, and the periwinkle is a refreshing colour on the red carpet, which is usually dominated by blush and black. I love the jewelled insect in Saoirse’s hair, which overall is really making me consider getting bangs for the first time since 2009. —Charlotte Herrold, editor-in-chief
