Costume Designers Guild Awards Red Carpet

Posted on February 22, 2012

Kittens, it was the 14th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards! And people showed up!

 

Amber Valetta in Roland Mouret

A fabulous dress on her in a color fabulously suited to her … and it’s all shot to hell with a no-effort hairstyle, bad lip color, and Payless shoes.

 

Ashley Madekwe

She looks adorable. That’s a super-cute dress. Those are super-unfortunate shoes to wear with it.

 

Chloe Moretz in Vivienne Westwood

Girl, That’s Not Your Dress. At first we were all, “Well, if she took 4 inches off the hem…” but that collar is way too much for a tiny gal her age. Plus the shoes are too matchy.

 

Christa B. Allen

Skin dress. Hooves.

 

Ellie Kemper in Giorgio Armani

We love it for being different, at least. It looks a little towel-y and the hem’s a bit long for her, though.

 

Jane Lynch in David Meister

A personal best for her. Seriously. She’s worn this exact dress many times, but it never fit her so perfectly and no color ever suited her as much as this red.

 

Kate Beckinsale in Vivienne Westwood

Pretty. Not earth-shattering, but well done, in a Kidman-y kind of way.

 

Madeleine Stowe in Monique Lhuillier

We suppose, much like Linda Evans and her vehement wearing of shoulder pads long past their sell-by date, Madeline is kind of required to wear those super-tight Victoria Grayson-style dresses for the time being. This one seems a little too busy for her.

 

Penelope Ann Miller in IZMAYLOVA

Hunh. Why did we think Ginger Rogers died years ago? The old gal looks great!

 

Rooney Mara in J. Mendel

Ooooh, can it be? Can the Audreybot be considered a thing of the past? Because this ain’t no Audreybot look. Gone are the stark blacks and/or whites with Star Trek-y cutouts. Gone are the mental patient bangs (which, admittedly, she made look chic). This is downright normal; even plain. But in a good way, no? The color is gorgeous on her and it’s got a simple, classic shape that suits her. If those shoes were just a shade or two darker (because we love the shape of them), this would be a perfect look – and a nice step forward for her, style-wise.
