Sandra Bullock Goes Blonde (and Now We're Having the Great 'Is It a Wig?' Debate)

Sep/23/2014 at 12:16 PM ET

Sandra Bullock is no stranger to blonde hair. The natural brunette sported a light shade for her Oscar-winning role in The Blind Side back in 2009. Then in 2011, she lightened up again for her role in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. And now the star is sporting a blonde hue that has editors divided on whether it’s real or faux. Check it out and let us know where you fall in the great wig debate!

This Week's Best Dressed Star: Lupita Nyong'o Takes Home Another Trophy

While we’re sure there were many close races at the Oscars, no competition was stiffer than this week’s Most Loved Looks. Every star brought her fashion A game to the Academy Awards red carpet, and as of press time the winner was ahead by only 90 votes. And, to no one’s surprise, Lupita Nyong’o emerged victorious.

Was there anything not to love about the Best Supporting Actress’s "Nairobi blue" Prada gown? Between the yards of flowy fabric, the plunging neckline and that Fred Leighton headband (which one editor called “the best accessory of the year so far”), the look was flawless, top to bottom. (And by the way, this is her fourth best dressed title from PEOPLE readers — count ’em 1, 2, 3, 4! — of 2014.)

But readers were equally smitten with the ladies in navy: Sandra Bullock, in a draped Alexander McQueen gown and side-swept curls, and Amy Adams, in a strapless peplum Gucci Prèmire dress that was custom made to hug her frame in all the right places. Read More

The Showdown: Sandra Bullock in Marchesa (2010) vs. Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga (2007)
The Editor’s Pick: Nicole Kidman
Who Made the Call?: Bronwyn Barnes, Senior Style Editor
Why She Chose It:
Balenciagaaaaaaaa! Sorry, I just had a Myrtle Snow moment there. (American Horror Story: Coven fans will know what I’m talking about.)

Nicole’s halter dress, created exclusively for the actress by the French fashion label, is the pinnacle of crimson-hued red carpet gowns – or at least it was until Lupita Nyong’o came along.

The look was polarizing: Some fashion critics raved, while others gave it two thumbs way down. Much of the discussion centered around that giant bow, which surely would have been the fashion meme of the night had Twitter been as popular in 2007 as it is now. The oversize knot was a little much, but I loved the way it draped into an over-the-shoulder train that cascaded down Nicole’s back, adding just the right amount of volume to the gown’s crepe silk skirt. I didn’t love the matchy-matchy red shoes, but this isn’t the Best Oscars Footwear Showdown.

(Speaking of shoulder embellishments, there was actually a bow detail on the original Marchesa design that Sandra wore in 2010, but the actress and her stylist removed it when they reworked the dress for the red carpet.)

With its lace-patterned illusion bodice and a sterling beaded skirt that shimmered like liquid metal, Sandra’s gown was a fitting choice considering that, by the end of the night, she had picked up the ultimate accessory. Not only was the dress a fan favorite, it became a part of Oscars fashion history, marking the first time Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig had ever dressed an Oscar winner.

They’re both memorable gowns, but for me this decision came down to looking at the side-by-side photos and deciding who wore it better. It may have had nothing to do with her ensemble — it’s just as likely she was experiencing a few Oscar nominee jitters — but Sandra seemed a little uncomfortable on the red carpet. And whether you loved it or hated it, you have to agree that Nicole really worked that dress.
