Reese Witherspoon's Oscars Gown: Love It or Hate It?

Reese Witherspoon has thrilled us with her award show looks over the years, from her vintage Christian Dior to collect her Best Actress Oscar to her sexy yellow Nina Ricci at the Golden Globes the following year. And when the surprise presenter took to the stage at tonight’s Academy Awards, it was no exception. The star chose a daringly fashion-forward Rodarte gown with a billowing ombre skirt and an asymmetrical beaded bodice. We love that Reese is supporting a young American label — Rodarte is designed by two twentysomething sisters in California. Reese is one of our Best Dressed picks, but it is more avant-garde than most. So we want to know: What do you think of Reese’s edgy look? Vote in our poll below!

Usually like her style but those clear straps (even worse in HD) were hideous!! What was she thinking? And her hair looked like it needed colored and the makeup washed her out. Something must be up with her. Did she decide to go to the Oscars at the last minute?
