Anne Hathaway, Glenn Close, Sally Hawkins, Lady Gaga, Oscars

We saw some breathtaking gowns during the Oscars Sunday night (we're looking at you, Lupita Nyong'o!), but there were a handful of getups that had us scratching our heads.

Now, let us just say right off the bat that there weren't any major disasters this year. A lot of stars played it safe, which means less potential for things to really go wrong.

There were, however, a few that left us wanting more. Or in some cases, wanting less.

Lady Gaga, for example, sadly wasn't her usual out-of-the-box self. Instead she opted for a fairly snoozy strapless gown that left us yawning instead of gasping. And we could have done without that superfluous chiffon scarf.

And we adore English actress Sally Hawkins, but we weren't in love with her way-too conservative lace number. Also, Anne Hathaway looked beautiful, but the bedazzled armor on her gown just may have done damage to our retinas. 

Look, with the good, comes the bad. It's just the law of fashion physics…or something like that. Not everyone can win an Oscar, and not everyone can kill it on the red carpet, either.
