Reese Witherspoon's Oscars Gown: Love It or Hate It?

Reese Witherspoon has thrilled us with her award show looks over the years, from her vintage Christian Dior to collect her Best Actress Oscar to her sexy yellow Nina Ricci at the Golden Globes the following year. And when the surprise presenter took to the stage at tonight’s Academy Awards, it was no exception. The star chose a daringly fashion-forward Rodarte gown with a billowing ombre skirt and an asymmetrical beaded bodice. We love that Reese is supporting a young American label — Rodarte is designed by two twentysomething sisters in California. Reese is one of our Best Dressed picks, but it is more avant-garde than most. So we want to know: What do you think of Reese’s edgy look? Vote in our poll below!

Okay, I usually love Reese in her awards gowns but this is definitely not a favorite of mine for her.

The dress is ok, but I thought the problem was her makeup. Reese is a cute girl and she usually looks elegant, but her makeup made her look the opposite (too much eye makeup and horrible color).

There were reports a few weeks ago that she was pregant. As soon as she came out, that is what I thought. I like the dress. She looked great. She is just adorable.

Reese Witherspoon was the worst part of the Oscars.

Ugly dress, fugly face and phony class act.

Love Reese, but lose the dark eye makeup. She looked tired.

It looks like her Halloween costume. I was expecting her to choose something way more spetaclar.

Reese looked incredible. She took a chance, and it paid off big time.

I liked the dress but personally I didn’t like how dark her eye makeup was it made her eyes look further apart and just hid their natural beauty.
