Clichés are clichés for a reason -- they're true and you know what they say: save the best for last.

As award season wraps up, The 88th Annual Academy Awards happened in Tinseltown today. While the Oscars are all about celebrating talent and the best of film, we also had our eyes glued to the red carpet, where the real drama happens.

Versace was a repeat offender: Tina Fey, who was clad in a purple dress from the label, always knows how to make people laugh, sometimes unintentionally through her style choices.

Outdated jewels and too much kohl don't help her case either

Kerry Washington wore a 50 Shades of Grey kinda waist trainer on top and paired it with a chiffon bottom. Weird.

That's Kerry on the left ten years from now, looking back at this outfit mortified.

Kate Winslet ran out of clothes so she wore a garbage bag instead, a Ralph Lauren garbage bag, mind you.

Oscar nominee Cate Blanchett was channelling her inner Elsa from Frozen.
