>> here's the thing. men have no trouble going up those steps in their tuxedos and flat shoes that they always wear. there should be something the ladies can hold on to or an usher. somebody there to help these ladies in these ball gowns. you know, the only time you really wear dresses like that is when you're getting married, and somebody carries your train for a reason. >> yes. >> these award shows, nobody is there to take care of you. >> you're right. >> god love her. can you imagine 22 years old and she's already been nominated before for an oscar. >> she's so down to earth. >> she was brilliant in that film, though. i watched it on the plane coming home yesterday. i just -- >> you loved it? >> oh, yeah. bradley was -- i didn't know he had that kind of a performance in him. so good. >> cute. yeah. what was weird when some people were giving their acceptance speeches how the "jaws" music started. >> like you're -- >> that was weird. then they practically dragged them. >> that guy deserved it. >> oh, you know what they've got to do, though. they've got to -- >> what? >> i hate to say it. >> say it. >> some of these awards are so obscure that the audience is sitting there, and you're
going -- you're hearing from someone who just won an obscure award. thanking people you'll never hear of. and it does sap the energy. it's 3 1/2 hours long. the tonys have learned how to do that. the grammys have learned how to do that. they're not any less important for the people that are winning them. just less interesting for the audience. >> yeah, yeah. >> you know? >> you're right. >> of course. >> don't look at me. i think jimmy fallon would be an awesome host. >> he would be amazing. jimmy kimmel too. >> from some other network. jimmy kimmel is great. i think seth mcfarland was okay. he didn't hit it out of the ballpark for me. he probably has it in him to. >> can you imagine? that's like the toughest job in the world. >> you can't -- yeah. everyone is going to criticize you no matter what. >> he is a great singer, though. >> i thought he nailed that. >> yeah. >> jimmy fallon, speaking of him for just a second, he did this funny bit.

hollywood pulled out all the stops at last night's oscars. did the stars shine as bright on the red carpet? >> juliana was front and center at last night's event, and she's ready to give us the rundown of the best and the worst dressed. hey, girl. >> good morning. >> good morning, ladies. how are you doing? >> we're good. have you been to sleep yet? >> not at all. >> you look good. >> talk to us about trends. what did you see on the red carpet? >> the biggest trend of the night was there was no one trend. you know, there were bold colors. they were metallics and soft colors. it was kind of all over the place. if anything, it seemed like armani preba was the designer of the night. his dress was on every other a-lister. that was the trend. >> jessica chastain. she looked like an oscar.
>> she's beautiful. >> look at that body. >> bless her for showing up early to the red carpet. she was the first a-lister to arrive. we love that. she looked gorgeous. old hollywood glamour. a little jessica rabbit in her. >> jessica rabbit, yeah. >> incredible. that dress was tailored to perfection. >> yeah. >> i just thought it was an excellent choice for the oscars. >> how about naomi watts? she took a risk, but i thought her dress was beautiful. >> you know, it's hard for us to tell. you guys see them there on the red carpet, but sometimes these things photograph very differently than they actually seem in person. that looks like liquid, i don't know, charcoal on her or something. >> you know, she looked just as beautiful on the carpet as in pictures. this photographed incredibly well. when i saw her on the carpet, i thought, oh, gosh, i hope this photographs well, and it did. she looked fantastic. it was modern. it was edgy. it was cool. it was almost a bit of a risque choice for the oscars, but it paid off. >> it didn't show any skin, though. that's the interesting thing. not very much.
no. i mean, it was very cut out and stuff, but it really was quite covered up. >> it was. it was. risque in the sense that it was a very modern cut, and for the oscars that tends to be a bit more classic. a classic red carpet. i loved it. i thought it paid off. >> let's talk about a couple of your misses. you didn't love ann hathaway. >> in prada. >> okay. >> why? >> here's the thing. we were waiting for ann hathaway to wow us. this is the oscars. she was a shoe-in to win, and so, you know, we really were waiting for this big gorgeous dress. i think she did have that dress because she was supposed to wear a valentino gown, and a couple of hours before the show she made a last minute decision to change into this prada. now, we're hearing this morning the reason that happened was because she had heard that another a-list actress was wearing a very similar gown and didn't want to be in a similar look. >> oh. >> yeah. so she said forget it. i'm not wearing that dress. >> she preferred the one she wore as she performed with the ensemble from "les miserables." >> that was armani prebae once
again. that dress was gorgeous she wore on stage. >> you looked great last night. it was fun watching you. >> kiss the baby for us. >> i will. i will. bye, girls. >> bye. >> all right, thanks julianna. there's a 90-minute fashion police tonight at 8:30 eastern on e! >> here to help us restyle the red carpet is our today style editor and good pal bobbie.com's bobbie thomas. >> yes. >> play that what-if game that you love playing. >> i love doing this because we all see the same thing, but this is something unique that we do here, and so we saw reese witherspoon and catherine zeta. in this gold number. i wanted to know what would happen if they swapped dresses. let's take a look. what do you think? >> absolutely. you're right. better.
better. >> what i liked about this -- >> monochromatic thing on reese. >> reese just glows. i will be happy to say that we let our viewers last night who were on-line watching with us, they did say that 71% liked the swap. if you don't agree, can you go on-line while we're doing this today and tell us differently. >> two beautiful women. you're right. >> the next one is going to be jennifer aniston. she's in valentino. this is a timeless iconic dress. i know that before you start yelling at me, okay? but this silhouette can handle a bold color, so i wanted to see her do something different. we always see her in a very straight forward dress. let's take a look. >> the same neckline. >> i like to see her maybe step out in a bold color. >> yeah. >> i kind of like the yellow, and funny enough, viewers didn't agree with me. they -- 52% liked the red. 25% liked the pink, and 22%, the yellow. i can say if you add these two up, i might actually be in the
lead. >> you're winning. >> okay. next we have carrie washington -- i'm sorry zoe saldano. i really like this dress. it's a little bit of a fashion-forward take for the oscars, but a lot of people were confused with all of the color. i can say she looks beautiful and does not need another inch on her sell wet. she's underweight if you ask me. she looks fantastic. however, a lot of people wanted to see if this was all white. >> i like that better. >> what's interesting is more people thought a -- 65% liked the all white, but i want to say if you are at home, look at what happens to the line of her body. stay away from any hems that kind of cut up on you or get too busy. >> i'm not crazy about the shoes she has on. they look more like sandals than -- >> for me it's a lot going on. you have the embroidery up top and then you have the belt and the black shoe and more gray. >> we got to go, girl. we love you. we love you. >> okay. the oscar goes to -- we'll have more. >> yes, we will.
