Darlings, it was the GQ Men of the Year 2011 party in L.A. and the boys were feeling the pressure to bring it to the red carpet. As with any sausage-fest post, expect us to sound like a broken record or a skipping mp3 or whatever the fuck the kids call it now.
Oh, and we should mention that the photographers were apparently dangled from the ceiling, several feet above the attendees, in order to make them all look like lollipop people.
Anyway, he looks cute.
We love a black and gold combo but we love it even more on a gal who was born to wear it. If only this thing wasn’t so shapeless.
Sweetie, someone needs to school you on red carpet posing. You might as well be having your driver’s license picture taken. The dress is cute, but it requires zhuzhing of which there is sadly none to be seen.
Alison Brie in Mackage
Cute, put together, not too showy; a look that says “I’m here to support my bros.”
Anna Faris in Preen
The posing isn’t helping, but this looks a little precious to us.
Very cute. Get your hands out of your pockets.
There is a serious disconnect going on between his and her outfits. Did they just meet five minutes ago? He’s looking dapper, but that suit looks like it’s too tight on him.
The motorcycle jacket over the cocktail dress has been done and done, so if you’re going to bring it back, at least pair it with an interesting dress and shoe.
She’s not boring; we’ll give her that.
Chris Pine in Ralph Lauren
Another very dapper attempt that is being harmed by the fact that everything’s just a bit too tight. Also, a contrasting tie is needed.
While the male shoe and accessory pairing rules are even less stringent than the female ones, we think his shoes, tie and hankie are all fighting each other for attention.
Elisabeth Moss in Cushnie et Ochs
Someone’s feeling mighty sexy with her new hair, aren’t they Lady Miss Clairol?
Emma Roberts in ASOS
Stylish accessories and hair make a basic red dress a classic, honey. Little tip from us.
Jaime King in Oscar de la Renta
Very cute, but it is impossible for us not to get this one …
… and this one mixed up. Mental note: Pressly dresses a little tackier.
Cute, but the tie’s too long.
Competently done, but the unbuttoned jacket and hands in pockets make him look like he’s on a coffee break during a managerial conference.
We’re thinking the white collar requires a tie.
Actually, the GQ Man of the Year party require a tie, period.
Jessica Biel in Antonio Berardi
Kind of “office Holiday party.”
Cute. The angle makes it seem he’s not best suited for vests, but we don’t know if that’s really true.
Another conference attendee (albeit an ucommonly hot one) on a break.
John Cho in Simon Spurr
And his buddy. Later they’ll all go to strip club together, where they will all continue to keep their hands in their pockets.
That is one packed Hamm. Outside of his Draper costumes, we don’t think we’ve ever seen him in something so fitted.
We hate ourselves for saying this, but: adorable.
We see he took our advice about white shirts and no vests. Even at this bad angle his shape looks better.
Kerry Washington in Prabal Gurung
Chic and sassy.
Lake Bell in Andrew Gn
She strikes us as the type who doesn’t pay much attention to what she’s going to wear so long as it shows off the bod and is paired with some showy shoes. There are worse ways to approach style.
Michael B. Jordan
GENTLEMEN: WE HAVE REACHED THE LIMIT. IT’S A FREAKING GQ PARTY. WEAR A COMPLETE SUIT AND TIE …
… AND GET YOUR HANDS OUT OF YOUR POCKETS.
That includes you, Svengali.
Minka Kelly in Versus
Not bad, but it looks a little office-y.
Good God, he takes the absolute worst pictures whenever he’s on a red carpet.
A little on the business-y side.
Zooey Deschanel in Vintage
Really cute dress. Not loving the glitter pumps paired with it. Competing golds make our eyelids twitch.
