These Are the Best-Dressed Moms of the 2016 Oscars Red Carpet at the Academy Awards

If you’re like me, you’ve hardly seen any of the movies nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards this year…and yet, you still tuned in anyway because glitz! glamor! fashion! stars! Am I right? Well, ok, I at LEAST tuned into the pre-show,  because I LOVE seeing what my favorite actresses are wearing, especially my favorite mom actresses like Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon. Let me just say ALL in ALL, in 2016, I was very impressed by the Oscar fashions. I mean I saw a lot less boobs and butt than usual and I was pleasantly surprised AND thankful! So, who were my fave mamas on the red carpet? Here they are!

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen is expecting a her first child, a girl, with husband John Legend, who is nominated for his song “Glory” from the movie Selma. I thought she and baby girl looked radiant in this beaded gown.

Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt, mom to Hazel, is expecting her 2nd child with husband John Krasinski. I think she and her tiny baby bump look amazing in this glitzy long empire-waist gown.

Isla Fisher

Mom of three Isla Fisher was totally stunning in this long off the shoulder belted gown. I absolutely ADORE the understated elegance here!

Jennifer Garner

I can’t help it, J.G. (as I like to call her, in my head, when I imagine that we are BFF) is my fave! I love her black gown. It was probably hard for her to step out tonight after her Vanity Affair interview about her divorce from Ben Affleck, so maybe that’s why no smile here from this mom of 3…but I love her elegant black gown.

Julianne Moore

This mom of teens and Oscar winner looks pretty darn ageless in this gorgeous black gown with a beaded halter neckline.

Kerry Washington

The Scandal star and mom of 1-year-old Isabelle is always so beautiful…I loved the lines of this dress but I wish the top were satin instead of leather. Nevertheless, because the amazing cheekbones she was born with, Washington will pretty much always make the best-dressed list in my book!

Reese Witherspoon

I didn’t see a whole lot of color on the Oscars red carpet this year, which is one reason this purple (dare I say amethyst?) strapless gown worn by the always flawless Oscar winner and mom of three Reese Witherspoon really stood out. So beautiful!

Tina Fey

But wait, there’s MORE purple! Tina Fey was stunning in this flowy strapless gown with the assymetirical banding on the bodice. Tina’s my fave funny mom and I love the way she cleans up, too! I kinda like her hair better down, though.

Well, those are my pics for most fashionable mamas on the Oscars 2016 Red Carpet. Who were your faves?
