This year's Oscars red carpet was a bit underwhelming -- maybe all the rain in Los Angeles this weekend scared the stars from taking chances? -- but there were a few bright spots that stood out. While not everyone's looks were entirely successful, they at least inspired plenty of conversation, which is all you can ask for from the Academy Awards.
Check out some of the best and worst looks of the night below, and feel free to chime in with your own picks in the comments.
Lupita has been knocking it out of the park this entire awards season, but the burgeoning starlet was clearly saving the best for last with this ethereal ice blue confection. Nyong'o made the most of her inaugural Oscar appearance by looking every bit like a princess attending her first ball -- though the plunging neckline assured that the otherwise demure dress would still have some edge. We're pretty sure she'll be back to rock the red carpet for years to come. (Photo by Michael Buckner/Getty Images)
