THE Academy Awards one of the most glamorous events in the film calendar and the world’s biggest stars have taken to the red carpet today.
They may dazzle on the big screen, but not everyone wowed with their sartorial choices this year – with these looks slightly missing the mark.

Bridesmaids star Maya Rudolph, 46, followed the old adage of go bold or go home, pulling out all the stops in a striking floral dress with capes that will certainly have turned heads.
While the pattern is pretty, the shapeless dress swamped the actress and slightly resembled an old-fashioned nightie.
Meanwhile, Gemma Chan, 36, from Crazy Rich Asians looks sensation in everything she wears, but we aren’t sure what to make of her bright neon gown that looks like a duvet.
The 91st Academy Awards is taking place at the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, where some of the biggest names in entertainment find out if they had won one of the coveted Oscar gongs.

And Melissa McCarthy, 48, may be one of our heroes, but she paired her sleek plunging white shirt and dark trousers with an actual white cape – and it was definitely an unusual choice.
Linda Cardellini, 43, who starred in Avengers: Age of Ultron clearly went against the widely-held mantra that less is more in some cases.
To say the star’s pink dress is extremely frilly and over-the-top would be an understandment, as the striking, layered Christian Siriano gown cascaded onto the red carpet, and was fastened with a large bow at the front.
And US singer Kacey Musgraves, 30, looked like a giant cake topper in a pale pink, frilly gown.
Crazy Rich Asians Awkwafina, 29, certainly lived up to her quirky side with a purple, shimmery trouser suit by DSquared2, that included a striking pussybow tie.

Linda Cardellini from Avengers: Age of Ultron and Scooby Doo certainly didn’t hold back when it came to this pink monstrosity by Christian Siriano[/caption]

We love Crazy Rich Asians star Awkwafina – but the large purple pussy bow on this DSquared2 outfit was a bit OTT[/caption]

Disney star Laura Marano, 23, from TV show Austin & Ally, wore a clashing yellow and pink dress by Celia Kritharioti, with a huge bow on the back.
