Which Dreamgirl's Oscar Look Did You Like Best?

02/26/2007 at 12:20 PM ET

They performed together both onscreen and on the Oscars stage, but each of the talented singer-actresses in Dreamgirls hit their own high notes on the red carpet last night. With the aid of Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley, Jennifer Hudson made a stylish entrance in an Oscar de la Renta chocolate silk jersey gown with ruched bodice, metallic python bolero and major Neil Lane jewels. Anika Noni Rose was glamorous as promised in a silver sequined Naeem Khan showstopper, Chopard diamonds, and $500,000 Kwiat diamond-studded Stuart Weitzman shoes. As the award show veteran, Beyonce lived up to her fashionable reputation in a pale green Armani Prive gown and glittering Lorraine Schwartz jewels. We think the ladies all look amazing, but isn’t it fun to play favorites? Tell us: Which Dreamgirl‘s Oscar look do you like best? Jennifer Hudson, Anika Noni Rose or Beyonce?

I have to say I wasn’t really in love with any of the dresses in particular, but if I had to choose I would say Jennifer Hudson dress was the best ( just the dress). The Bolero she wore took away from it, and out of all the awards shows she has been too, this is actually the worst she has looked. Ankia Noni’s Dress was a little to flashy/casual, and Beyonce’s dress was wonderful it was the color that did nothing for her.

They all look bad. Anika’s dress is a wardrobe malfuntion waiting to happen. Beyonce, who is normally stunning looks frumpy, and Jennifer needs to learn to wear dresses that are more flattering to a heavier figure.

j on

i agree w/the above post. jennifer’s minus the jacket. i thought beyonce’s and anika’s dresses for their onstage performance were GORGEOUS, though!!!

rachel on

i like Anika Noni Rose’s the best, itz beautiful.

Alice on

Jennifer Hudson, no hesitation. Oscar de la Renta is simply the best. Beyonce just looked tacky!


Nighthag on

I don’t care for either.

ng on

I also am not in love with any of the dresses, but Jennifer Hudson looked the best even with the bolero. However, i don’t agree with previous comment. I think up until now Jennifer Hudson has dressed very complimentary to her figure. She has looked flawless at all the awards ceremonies and appearances. She has a great figure and should not be afraid to flaunt her assets. And no I am not a full figured woman. I just feel all women should be given credit where credit is due. no matter what size.

Natalie on

I thought that Beyonce looked the best! She is the by far the best dream girl due to the fact that she is not a fresh face like jennifer hudson or Anika noni Rose. She is a veteran in the acting/singing scene and she continually impresses her fans. the other two looked stunning, dont get me wrong, but you need to work hard to become a great singer/actress. You’re not just born into it.

For me it would be between Anika and Beyonce. I honestly wasn’t blown away by any of them but it didn’t make them appear horrible either. I think Beyonce should have opted out for the whole accenting with the enamel going on her assymetrical collar. My first reaction when I saw Jennifer, was for her to just take that jacket off! She looked great without it and didn’t need all that. Anika looked great but it seemed a little maybe too revealing (or is that just me..)?

I have to say I don’t like any of the dresses. I think Beyonce’s dress was to blah..and Hudson did look nice but I just didn’t like this dress on her. She doesn’t look bad but she doesn’t look great either. The jacket thingy has got to go though. Anika’s dress – no comment.

LL on

Beyonce looked the best. J. Hudson’s little jacket just threw me off completely, and Anika’s dress is too shapeless and tacky.

Elda on

All three looked beautiful but Anika looked the best.

Kim on

Beyonce all the way!

Elda on

P.S. i was surprised by Beyonce because she had tears in her eyes when Jennifer won the award, i guess she is a team player after all. Beyonce is beautiful i just wish she wouldn’t use fur on her clothes line.

jennifer on

Beyonce 4ever! I hated that jacket on Jennifer and Anikas was….nvm.

Marissa!!!!! on

Even though I think that Jennifer Hudson has way more talent than Beyonce, in this case, I would say that Beyonce’s dress is the best. But Jennifer still ROCKS!

Stephanie on

Why oh why did Jennifer put on that hideous dress??? The color did not match her skin nor did the shape accentuate her body…If I knew I was going to win an Oscar I would NEVER wear Jennifer’s dress. The red one she has on during the performance suited her well and so did the silver one that she had on when she won. Honestly Oscar de la Renta did not help her out on the red carpet at all.

Harlow on

I don’t really like any of the dresses. If I really had to choose, I guess I would go with Beyonce.

This is the worst Jennifer Hudson has looked. I hate that jacket, and the dress just doesn’t seem to fit properly on her. Or maybe it’s just her posture and how she poses for pictures. Don’t get me wrong, because Jennifer Hudson has dressed beautiful previously on the red carpet.

Anika Noni Rose was too revealing. I didn’t like the sparkle on the dress. Maybe if it was a little more fitted on the top, where she wasn’t showing so much. And maybe do something a little more with the hair. It’s the Oscars, go glam! She reminds me of a little Jada Pinkett-Smith. Anika will catch on, Jada did.

While I liked the dress. I didn’t like that thing draped over Beyonce’s shoulder, and I wish she would have opted to wear something with a little more color. I also hate that slit. She’s been wearing the slits in the dresses often, and it is just too much the same. I do love her hair and make-up though.

Kathaleen Anderson on

Okay I like all of the dresses because they actually stood out in the crowd. Really, I like Anika’s the best though because it was a style I HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE!!!!! I mean gosh, anything she wears looks nice soo…….why should this time be any different!!!

rachel b. on

Dreamgirl dress vote, Hudson!

tasha on

hmm…I like Anika dress the best, although it was revealing, it still caught your attention. Beyonce’s dress was more like a wedding dress or something you would expect to beautiful, but its doesn’t grab you attention right away. I was totally surprised by Jennifer, she did decide to change her dress afterwords. Her hair was really pretty. Jennifer keep up the good work. Don’t let one outfit ruin what’s to come. Great Job Girl!! I’m proud of you!

sarah on

I liked Beyonce’s the best. What happened to Jennifer Hudson’s impeccable style during the awards season?! I hated the dress and the jacket did nothing for her at all.

c on

I am not a big Beyonce fan, but style wise she’s got it hands down!

Daniela on

I did not like Jennifer Hudson gold jacket! It took over everything! Also it was too much, with the hair in the way of the collar! You couldn’t see her neck….! It was very uncomfortable just to see her it made me wanna pull my hair back, she should have done an up do if your wonna wear that kind of collar!
Beyonce needed to pull her hair back as well. It was too much already with the stones. YOu got to let one thing be the focal point, the hair was in the way.

Sarah on

I have a question. I am dying to know who designed the red dress Beyonce wore to perform with her co-stars. Can anyone help me?

Chrissy on

Beyonce looked the best..kinda simple! Anika’s was a little too much, and Jennifer’s just didn’t look good at all. Maybe if she went w/a different color, and was to get rid of the jacket, she might have pulled it off.

Lish on

Is it just me? The seams on the sides of Beyonce’s dress near the hips look puckered…Jennifer is a beautiful shapely woman her dress was beautiful I just couldn’t get with that jacket. Anika’s dress worked for her size but it wasn’t paticularly a favorite of mine.

zee on

i think beyonce looks funny in that dress, just look at the leg hahaha…. the rest look ok but not nice,i like jennifer’s jacket on another out fit but not that dress

Deliah on

Beyonce, She was amazing, however, I’ll have to ssay that Jenier hudson, even Tho I Lovve her (srry, dont know how to spell her name! Bou), her dress wasnt as good as usual, I was a little disapointed….But she stills Really good!

Beka on

i disliked all of them but the blue one was probably the best i like the color of Beyonce

Sanja on

I like Beyonce’s dress the most.
On stage she looked fabolous and I really like her dress, she looks best there too.

almaha on

Ilike beyonce only

Suriel on

All of the ladies looked fabulous. Since the red carpet is where the biggest “statement” is made, I would have to go with Anika for the best outfit. She went against the odds. Most other gowns that night were of the same material, style (one-shoulder), etc. There was not much glitz & glamour with the exception of Anika. Jennifer’s best look of the night (dress) was post-Oscars. Her hair on the red carpet was absolutely gorgeous. Who is her hairstylist? Beyonce is usually more glamorous that she was this year. I don’t think she can top the black velvet dress a year or so back.

Grace on

I have always felt Jennifer Hudson has exhibited good dress sense, but she didn’t make a good choice for the Oscars. It would have been a lot better w/o the jacket. What she wore post Oscars was luvly! You should have worn thah girl to the ceremonies.
Beyonce = not impressed @ all. Anika =nice. I settle for her

Kathy on

Jennifer’s dress looked nice on her but was a bit too casual for the Oscar’s. I didn’t care for the jacket at all. I liked her outfits at previous award shows much better. I didn’t like the blue dress Anika wore to the awards at all but I LOVED the red dress she wore in the Dreamgirls number. Can we please see a picture of it. I want it and would like to see it again. Beyonce is beautiful and her dress very pretty but I agree that it would have looked better on her in a different color.

Princess on

Beyonce looks beautiful like always.Next would have to be Anika. Jennifer Hudson is just plan ugly. She looks so tacky and her attitude is go GETO!!!!!! She is not all that!!!!


Roos on

BEYONCE! She looks hot as usual!

Songchild on

Stop Hate’n Females! All them girls look good!! They just human…the gotta eat too! I like Jennifer’s dress minus the pockets. Other than that they all can sing and they look good no matter what size!
