BAFTA Brits To Watch Event

Posted on July 11, 2011

Darlings, it was the BAFTA “Brits To Watch” event, held at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles, California, which we think should have been titled “Brits to Watch – And Then Say Something Bitchy about Their Clothes,” but no one ever listens to us. In the interest of fairness and international relations, we will also try to say bitchy things about Americans and the occasional Australian.

Blake Lively in Marchesa

Gotta give the girl credit when it’s due: she’s working the shit out of this mostly shapeless dress. The color looks great on her. Too bad she didn’t have time to do her hair.

Cat Deeley

You know how we’ve been going on lately about dresses that look like old bedsheets? Behold the next trend: dresses that look like old curtains.

What a drab, sad little frock.

Dana Delany in Prada

Oh, sweetie. This is not the way. We love Prada too, but you don’t go head to toe in mismatched Prada like you’re posing for an ad campaign. It just makes you look completely devoid of style. Also, you’re underdressed.

Elisabeth Moss in J. Mendel

It’s a very pretty dress that suits her figure perfectly. If only it wasn’t so colorless.

Elizabeth Banks in Versace

It’s showy in that Versace way but we don’t really mind it. The buttons on her shoulder are a bit distracting, though. And the shoes are all wrong.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw in Reem Acra

We’re quietly putting away our bitchiness for this one. She looks gorgeous.

Jennifer Garner

It’s big and dramatic and the color’s great, but she’s totally shapeless in this thing.

Jennifer Lopez in Emilio Pucci

Jesus, Mary, and Oprah.

Just a reminder that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were guests at this event. She met the future King and Queen of England dressed like a Game of Thrones prostitute. Look, we’re not royalists by any stretch (hence: “Bill and Cathy”), but no matter your thoughts on the monarchy, you are a guest at an event they are attending and there’s a certain level of class and decorum expected, even for Hollywood. This is embarrassingly tacky.

And we’ll say it: J Lo, you’re in your 40s now. This makes you look insanely desperate.

Kristin Chenoweth in BCBG Max Azria

We know Kristi’s the size of a smurf and therefore it’s very difficult for her to find outfits that fit her and flatter her tiny frame. We can make concessions, but we still don’t love this on her. Why does she always go for strapless? If this hung on her shoulders it might have been a little more flattering. As it is, she looks like a melting Oscar.

Maria Bello in Donna Karan

Pretty dress in a great color, but that strap looks awfully heavy.

Mary-Louise-Parker in Dolce & Gabbana

Very pretty. Love the colors on her. A shame she didn’t have time to do her hair.

Nicole Kidman in Elie Saab

Don’t like the hair at all and the bag looks like a makeup kit, but the dress looks stunning on her.

Rita Wilson

Considering some of the wackadoo outfits she’s worn in public, this is downright demure. Too shiny and heavy-looking, but at least she doesn’t look like she got dressed drunk.
