ELLE’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute

Posted on October 18, 2011

Since we did an all-boy red carpet rundown yesterday, it’s time for the ladies to take center stage, wouldn’t you say? Compare and contrast. At the Scream Awards, the look for men was pretty much “frat boy,” whereas at ELLE’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute, the look was very much “Ladies who Lunch.”

Abigail Breslin in Calvin Klein

We almost like it. It’s a bit shapeless but not everything needs to be form-fitting. The yellow clutch makes it just a bit too citrus-y and the beige pumps don’t really go.

 

Alice Eve in Dolce & Gabbana

Betty Draper. We would guess that was the look she was deliberately going for. We like the accessories matching here. The clutch pulls out the greens in the dress and the pumps “go” without matching.

 

Amber Heard in Calvin Klein

Pretty, but the makeup – and the shoes, for that matter – are a bit heavy for this look.

 

Camila Alves

Pretty.

 

Chloe Moretz in Calvin Klein

Enh. It’s on the chic side of things, but it’s not really doing any favors to her shape.

 

Cobie Smulders in Max Mara

She’s way too young to be looking this matronly. A less cougar pair of shoes and wearing her hair down would have helped a lot. The dress is actually pretty, although we’re not sure she can pull off that yellow.

 

Elizabeth Olsen in Calvin Klein

Hair and makeup look very pretty and mostly age appropriate, but that dress is not flattering.

 

Ellie Kemper

Pretty dress; hate the shoes.

 

Evan Rachel Wood

ERW didn’t get the memo. “Ladies who Lunch,” sweetie. Not “Ladies who practice witchcraft.”

 

Freida Pinto in Calvin Klein

Very, very pretty. Love the shoes and necklace, although they’re a little too matchy.

 

Gillian Jacobs

She looks like she wandered into an April Cornell store and twirled around.

 

Jayma Mays in Catherine Malandrino

Someone else who didn’t get the memo.

 

Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Edition by Georges Chakra

Pretty, but a bit on the showy side for this type of event.

 

Katherine Heigl in Amanda Wakeley

Ditto.

 

Laura Dern

Oh, dear. Those pants are a tragedy and SO IS THAT CRAZY LADY HAIR, LAURA. But we like your necklace.

 

Michelle Pfeiffer

Goddess.

 

Nichole Richie

That’s a beautiful print. Again, all the gowns just look overdone here.

 

Octavia Spencer

This would have looked great had she worn a better bra. Great accessorizing.

 

Rachel Zoe

Since floor-length is Rachel’s go-to, we guess we can’t ding her for wearing a gown. Besides, she looks pretty amazing here.

 

Reese Witherspoon in Bocanegra

Hate the lacey cami, but props to her for wearing a chic pantsuit.

 

Robin Wright Penn

The washed out makeup with the heavily lined eyes is a bit disconcerting, especially paired with the Moe Howard hair. The dress is a bit too interesting for its own good. Don’t tell her we said all this because she looks like she can kick our asses.

Viola Davis in Calvin Klein

Chic. Sometimes, all one color from dress to accessories really works. We love a good pewter. Don’t love the mushroom hair, though.
