On Sunday, March 2, the stars shined in Hollywood, despite the rain, at the 86th Annual Academy Awards.
We cheered on host Ellen Degeneres and the night’s honorees, as Matthew McConaughey (Best Actor), Cate Blanchett (Best Actress), Lupita Nyong’o (Best Actress in a Supporting Role), Jared Leto (Best Actor in a Supporting Role), and more, took home Oscar gold. But of course, for us at DFW Style Daily, the red carpet was the main event.
A few risks, a few upsets, and many stunning designer surprises were in store for Oscar fashion fans this year. To recap the trends and the night’s top looks, we tapped Steve Kemble, America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru. Who better than KVIL’s King of “What’s Hot” and our favorite Us Weekly Fashion Cop to dish on the hottest red carpet of the year?
Read on for Steve Kemble’s picks, pans, and quotes:

Despite a stellar red carpet season and a beautiful blue gown by Prada, “For once, Lupita was not Best Dressed!”
“I am not sure this is the Oscar debut that Jason Wu had hoped for. The dress was wrinkled and wet!”
“No only does Liza seem to have had a ‘refresh,’ but the Oscars are not the appropriate place for your pajamas!”
“Pharrell’s shorts, I feel, were a bit disrespectful for the Oscars. And – oh, my – what about those chicken legs?”
