We’ve already picked our best dressed (and you can pick yours, too!) but what do the experts think? We asked Brad Goreski — whose Bravo series It’s a Brad, Brad World, ends tonight — for his input, and here’s what he had to say:

Jessica Chastain. “Jessica has been wearing a lot of solid colors on the red carpet recently, so it was nice to see her in this black Alexander McQueen gown with intricate gold beading. It’s both romantic and tough at the same time. For me, she saved the best look for last.”

Gwyneth Paltrow. “She brought drama to the red carpet,” he says. “Tom Ford is the perfect designer for her. Only Gwyneth could wear a cape and make it work. The gown underneath was simple in its shape and construction, but the sculptural shoulder gave it a modern sophistication. Her hair and makeup were flawless, too.”

Michelle Williams. “I have been waiting all awards season for her to give us a fairytale moment, and she gave it to me tonight,” he says. “I love the color on her, and the accessories are perfect. Simple diamond necklace … and the hot pink clutch is a nice, unexpected touch!”

Do you agree? Tell us in the comments. And for more with Goreski — including his and boyfriend Gary Janetti’s telling of their “how we met” story — check out the exclusive preview clip below. Tune into the season finale of It’s a Brad, Brad World tonight at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.

Wendy on

Who is he?

Highly disagree except for Gwenyth. Penelope who is usually in black could’ve been on this list. She looked timeless.

Krobi on

Milla Jovovich stole the show.It was her first time at the Oscars and she was presenting. She was one of the first to arrive on the red carpet and I was left thinking “ok it’s all downhill after seeing perfection”. I’m not even a fan but she nailed it! She put all those big super stars to shame. Now that’s how you do a red carpet event!
