ONE! LAST! TIME!
We don’t mean to alarm you, Nancy Drew, but your dress appears to be evaporating.
Allison Janney in David Meister
Fantastic dress on her. Kinda disappointing hair.
Looks like someone’s looking for a man tonight.
Claire Danes in Valentino
Seems a little grandiose for an after-party.
Emily Mortimer in Pedro Garcia
Hair looks great; dress is fine; totally digging the long necklace, which you don’t see much on the RC.
Emily VanCamp in J. Mendel
Sorta-love the dress; sorta-hate the shoes with it.
Felicity Jones in Johanna Johnson
It’s far from perfect on her, but we’re impressed by how much she’s making this work. Really, our only complaints are that it looks terribly heavy and that the skirt is terribly wrinkled, which was unavoidable, we suppose.
So great is Joan Collins’ longstanding love affair with shoulder pads that she will staple a couple of Pier One placemats to her dress when she feels she’s not getting the silhouette she deserves.
Julie Bowen in Halston
Sweetie, the curtains are rising on your vagina but it looks like one of them’s stuck on those giant clown-car platforms you’re sporting.
This look was sponsored by the Florida Citrus Growers’ Association, by the way.
Kate Beckinsale in Atelier Versace
Trying just a bit too hard.
Kate Hudson in Versace
She looks pretty good, but the visible illusion netting kinda takes it down a little. Between that and the fringe, it’s like an ice-dancing gown.
Katie Holmes in Elie Saab Couture and Tom Cruise
They look fantastic, we won’t deny it.
Mia Wasikowska in Antonio Berardi
Stunning dress. A shame she didn’t have time to put on any makeup.
Standard. A little on the mature side.
Salma Hayek in Yves Saint Laurent
It’s a really pretty gown. A but too much on the sweet side for her, but we can’t say she looks bad in it. We can say that the braid is coming close to ruining the look. Ladies, if your gown has some sort of detail near the neckline or shoulders, we’re not saying an up ‘do is absolutely required, but over-the-shoulder braids are definitely a bad idea.
Actually, over-the-shoulder braids are a bad idea in almost any instance.
Serena Williams in Christiane King
This is mean but we burst out laughing at this picture. Sweetie, we say this with love (and from a safe distance), but THIS IS NOT YOUR DRESS. We’re not sure it’s a dress for anyone but RuPaul, frankly.
(And yes, impatient bitches, we’re getting to Ru at some point today.)
Sofia Coppola in Yves Saint Laurent
This is totally divorcee-on-a-date, circa 1978 or so.
Sofia Vergara in Roberto Cavalli
It’s refreshing to see her in white and to not see her in another mermaid skirt. On anyone else this would look bridal as hell, but she can’t not make a dress go va-va-voom.
