Wearing a fun print on a formal gown can be tricky! Which girl mastered the look?

With all the blue hues on the carpet, it felt like the people from Pandora were among us — but that wasn’t the only trend we spotted! Both Maggie Gylenhaal and Rachel McAdams opted for blue prints on the red carpet for the Oscars on March 7. While Rachel went for a flowing pastel Elie Saab, Maggie wore a bold Dries van Noten frock. I instantly fell in love with Rachel’s print — the pastel colors, light chiffon fabric, and flowing silhouette was just whimsical. When it comes to Maggie’s get-up, I didn’t feel the same way — the colors didn’t blend well on the heavy fabric. Either way, both girls took chances and brightened up the carpet, but which girl wore a perfect print?
