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!

Same, old Reese Witherspoon – she has no taste.

Does Reese still pretend to date that gay actor?

I love it, but I would just remove the black straps or alter them.

Reese Witherspoon looks like white trash who stole some expensive clothes.

Reese looks great no matter what she wears!

Her eye makeup was so distracting…that I hardly noticed the dress. Whoever did her makeup…should be fired.

I really wanted to like the dress…. because I love Reese, but really couldn’t get past the black sash. Just too much!

i think that this dress makes her look fat, but i dont think that its a horrible dress and i still think she manages to look good. but she is not a fat girl and this makes her look fat unfortunately. she usually looks so gorgeous and i was a bit disappointed i must say.

The dresses were the best part of the oscars. The rest of it was pretty bland. I liked what this guy had to say:
