Met Gala 2012 Red Carpet Part 3

Posted on May 08, 2012

Come on, you fame addicts! COME AT US!

Amber Heard in Zac Posen

It’s a standard dress and it’s also kind of a standard Amber Heard/Zac Posen dress. She doesn’t look bad, but it’s all very expected. And we don’t love the color.


Amy Poehler in Fotini

Oh, the bottom is so tragic, Amy. But the top two thirds look great and that’s a very important step in the right direction! Yay! Your bust fits you correctly!


Brooklyn Decker in Tory Burch

Pretty color, but kind of a bleh shape to this thing.


China Chow in Jean Paul Gaultier

She has to be sporting at least 6 inches of heel to be wearing this dress. Bless her.


Christina Ricci in Thakoon

Girl, that’s CLEARLY too much dress for you.


Debra Messing in Kaufmanfranco

The plunging neckline combined with the way everything gathers at her belly button makes the whole thing look less than flattering.


Emma Roberts in Escada

Pretty, but probably not her best color.


Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhuillier

Gotta say, she looks pretty amazing. We’re not crazy about all the satiny pumps everyone seemed to have defaulted to last night, but these ice blue shoes were a great idea, color-wise.


Gisele Bundchen in Givenchy

Honey, your shoes are too small.


Greta Gerwig in Prabal Gurung

It’s a bit too dour in a Joan Crawford kinda way, but the color is gorgeous.


Ivanka Trump in Peter Pilotto

We go back and forth on this one. The top of the dress seems more complicated than it needs to be and her hair is kind of aging, but the overall look is dramatic.


Jaime King in Topshop

Awful. And it looks highly flammable.


Jessica Alba in Michael Kors

It’s cute how the Duchess is beaming proudly behind her. As well he should.


Lena Dunham in Wes Gordon

Girl, that is not only not your dress, those are not the shoes to be wearing with it.


Leslie Mann in Nina Ricci

Don’t love the color and the shoes pull focus.


Marion Cotillard in Christian Dior

It’s a gorgeous dress, but the sheer skirt’s not working for us. Needed a lining. Also, the hair and makeup are kind of disappointing.


Milla Jovovich in Prada

There was a lot of gorgeous Prada to be found on that RC last night, but this wasn’t one of them.


Sandra Lee

Damn. Someone’s been skipping the cocktails and tablescapes and spending more time working out.


Sarah Jessica Parker in Valentino

We made a “Little House on the Prairie” joke last night on the twitter, but we have to admit, we think this is gorgeous. Get rid of those cuffs, though.

    • introspective

      Jesus, Mary and Oprah all cried when they saw Lena Dunham’s shoe choice. as they did when they beheld Amber Heard shitting fabric uncontrollably on the steps of the Met.

      • introspective

        and can everyone wearing lace, sheer w/ granny panties or otherwise mullet dresses go home and find new looks? Im over all that shit.

        • Cate

          RIGHT?!?! I cannot with these panty dresses.

        • In_Stitches

           I liked Audrey-bot’s, but that’s her look.  Marion’s however…well, it’s a no.  Same with Beyonce for that matter…what’s with black dresses fading to purple along the bottom?

      • mom2ab

        And why does Amber look like she was trying to dye herself to match her gown?

        • kimmeister

          Seems like a bunch of people fell into pits of bronzer before this event!

      • How to Faint

        They may have cried, but I cackled joyfully. Then again, I hate that bitch.

    • Paigealicious

      Aunt Sandy! Lay off the self tanner a bit!

      • MikeW_PHX

         I think this is the first time I’ve seen Aunt Sandy in a fashion line up..

      • efishfan

        I’ll let her tan if she agrees to hoist the girls back up. There’s something very unfortunate happening in the front of her dress.

      • Gayer Than Thou

        From the looks of things, she has decided to crown herself Queen of New York.

    • Alli

      China Chow looks AMAZING! This is the first I’ve seen her dress – why is she not featured in more roundups?!

      • Cathy S

         I loved that. I was thinking as I was scrolling, “gee that’s really interesting” and then I saw the bottom and damn, that’s a fantastic dress. She looks gorgeous.

        • Sara L.

           Exactly my reaction! Except I actually said “Wow!” out loud when I got to the bottom. Absolutely stunning!

      •ía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

        Absolutely! China Chow FTW!

      • Caaro3

        China Chow, Goddess of Fabulousity!

      • Penny Eager

         Agreed, she looks amazing, I adore the bottom of her dress, and her hair & makeup is perfect for it! It’s kind of the nicest sheer fabric dress of the night, maybe.

    • Susi R

      Ricci looks like an alien. My favorites are Alba & Trump.

    • Synnamin

      WHY is everyone orange?? THAT is one fashion trend that needs to die, stat! Looking like an oompa loompa does no one any favors.

      And Sandra Lee, honey… they make strapless bras. please look into it.

      • Jennifer Coleman

        Seriously, what is UP with all the spray tan?? Not cool at all.

      • ballerinawithagun

        Even on her cooking show, she has a bra issue.

    • Ashley

       O SJP! You could have done soooooooooo much better.

      • VicD

        What a comeback! Debra Messing has George Washington’s wig (I don’t know, something about
        that hair just says “George Washington” to me), and SJP has Martha
        Washington’s dress.  And the Washington’s have both been for dead 200 years.

    • Sobaika Mirza

      China Chow is perfection. That is all.

    • M

      I’m more concerned with the color of Amber Heard’s skin than her dress.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Yikes!  With the exception of Amber Heard & Gennifer Goodwin, these are all pretty bad compared to the mostly fabulous posts #1 and #2. 

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      I give Sandra Lee a lot of credit for mostly looking amazing in that dress, but her poor boobs…  I just feel sorry for them.

      • Patti Lever

         Is she wearing a tiara? *shudder*

    • cori

      just a few quick questions and comments.
      has ginnifer goodwin ever not looked miserable?
      was ivanka trump trying to look like a dominatrix?
      jessica alba is clearly wins the night.
      at least lena dunham wore makeup?
      milla jovovich is one plastic shield away from taking tourist photos outside the coliseum.
      and lastly, sarah jessica parker looks like the only reason she’s wearing this dress is because  she’s been handcuffed into submission… possibly by ivanka. but she loves it. ew. 

      • Spicytomato1

        I was thinking the same thing about GG. Plus I’ve about had it with her severe hairstyle.

    • sockandaphone

      at this rate, I hope Beyonce is getting a WERQ post because im still waiting on TLo’s opinion about it

    • alyce1213

      Cate Blanchett can pull off feathers, Amy Poehler not so much.
      Ivanka Trump’s dress would have been to-die-for navy velvet without the mess on top — regular straps (even strapless) would have done it.
      Marion Cotillard’s dress is magnificent — and I dislike granny pants with sheer overskirt.  This one, somehow, works extremely well.
      Jessica Alba’s Kors dress fits her and suits her perfectly.  That’s one Happy Duchess.
      Lena Dunham is a complete tragedy — pop-of-color-shoe abuse, that awful dress, and tattoos.

    • sockandaphone

      Also pt. 3 post is full of hot messes. yikes at some of these dresses.
      and Christina Ricci’s dress looked better in other pictures. That is one unflattering picture.

      • TAGinMO

        Yeah, she literally appears to be sagging under the weight of her dress. I wonder why TLo used that pic on this page, but the front-page thumbnail shows her smiling and standing straight up?

      • judith traherne

        The other photos of C Ricci I’ve seen were stunning–love the dress– but in every one she was standing dink-toed.

    • Charles

      That is an “open heart surgery” dress on Messing. Though overall, the standard this year from a style perspective is extremely high. Well, once you ignore the Kors level of bronzer applied by some.

    • Shreya Aren

      Does Amber Heard ever wear anything with straps or sleeves?

    • BradWatson

      Oh, there’s SJP!!  I was too distracted by envy for the man Jackman is hugging so enthusiastically.

      • 3rdsister

         SJP already got her Jackman hug — hence the afterglow!

    • Lauren Dorsee Dillon

      I am now terrified of Christina Ricci. 

    • VeryClaire

      Christina Ricci looks like she’s peering out of the mouth of her dress after it ate her. 

    • Lina_bee

      Goodwin & Alba FTW. SJP’s…thing looks dreadful. It’s a chintz sack. It’s Edwardian upholstery on a prairie schoolmarm. It’s RIDICULOUS. And when will Valentino get the hell over this phase?  SO OVER IT.

      • Cathy S

         I love that description. “Edwardian upholstery on a prairie schoolmarm.” Truly, you are a bitter kitten who has a way with words. That gown is horrible.

      • Diane Lynch

        And is she wearing matching shoes? Matching wallpaper-flower shoes? NOOOOOOOO!

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Christina Ricci looks like she’s pulling out a wedgie…if she could only find her underwear in that mess of a dress.  

      Though you don’t see Tom Brady with Gisele in this shot, I should note, their hair was styled almost the same.  Too far guys. Too far.

      Ivanka looks like her mother. In bondage.

    • Sara Munoz

      Amber Heard’s dress reads as “fancy duvet cover”.
      But I like her hair.

    • MilaXX

      China Chow has a knack for making the most complicated of outfits work. 
      Poor, tiny Christina Ricci needs to lose that bow.
      Nene Dunham’s date said he picked those shoes out of her closet. Sadly they only worked when he and his pink tux were standing next to her. Also that dress looks like a home ec project.
      I like Emma Roberts in that dress, but think it needed a warmer lip.
      I also like Ginnefer Godwin’s look, but I wish she had spiked/scrunched/gelled or mushed that hair up a bit.
      Ivanka’s dress looks straight from the Joan Collins Dynasty collection.
      Debra Messing needs a hair cut and a different dress. The breast plate look worked in her 20’s, but not so much now.
      SJP’s hair and makeup look good, but that dress is pure sister wife.

    • newleaf1

      SJP’s dress is gorgeous?  Really?  TLo – back away from the caffeine. 

    • Alison Sigman

      JaJo is taking away all the attention in Brooklyn Deckers picture! 

      • introspective

        Isnt she though??? thats how you know January is killing it cause she shut down someone else’s moment in the spotlight. that said, if its any dress that needed zero time in the spotlight its the crap Brooklyn has on. yawn.

    • 3boysful

      OK, did everyone going go the gala visit the Dancing with the Stars spray tanner people beforehand?  I have never seen such a collection of fake bronzing!

    • Jecca2244

      Brooklyn Decker looks like a soccer mom, Lena’s dress makes me sad because I love Wes and Ivanka’s hair makes me want to weep. She had a really pretty brunette shade for a while and it looked great. Shes too pretty for blunt bangs.

    • VicksieDo

      In this group, I’m a fan of SJP (cover up with beautiful flowery richness, a yes!), Christina Ricci (a wow from me), China Chow (wow, that’s an incredible dress), and Marion (making the sheer skirt werq).  Gorg!

    • SpcilK

      Sandra Lee brought it, bronzer and all! Jessica Alba looks stunning.

    • Dr Skylaser

      LOVE China Chow’s.  Hate SJP’s.

      • Lilak

        Miss Chow’s was probably my favorite of the night.  

        SJP’s illustrates the problem with that not haute enough Valentino collection: Pretty femme fabric and all, but the style is so neither-here-nor-there (esp. w/ the long sleeves), I can’t imagine for what occasion this would be Just the Thing.
        (See also Brit Marling and Lily Collins last night)

    • In_Stitches

      I love Christina for going for it and I’d sign off on the dress if that yellowy champagne color didn’t  look so badly against her skin.  It’s just not her (or anyone else’s for that matter) color.

    • skadi1

      I’m going to have to find China Chow’s dress in motion. It looks like it would move marvelously.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      Ivanka Trump – Whoa! For a split-second I thought she was her mother.

    • altalinda

      I think you were right the first time with SJP.

    • Char Crop

      Did someone pay you off to change your last night’s critique of SJP? Ahhhhhh uncles…tut, tut…your original comments were right on the mark! As someone else so succinctly put it…Little House on the Prairie…sponsored by Laura Ashley…and BTW, her pumps matched the dress! 

    • Carla_Charlton

      In real life, I’ll bet the Sarah Jessica Parker dress was beautiful.  And completely appropriate for the Met gala. The only other things I have to say are:  The mid-calf length is tricky and more often than not, unflattering.  I also think it’s just not really right for a ball/gala.  And, ladies, the open-toed shoes are matronly — please stop wearing them!

    • susu11

      Oh TLo I love you guys but I can’t support SPJ get up. It’s a Laura Ashley dress gone terribly wrong. It would look cutesy and awful on a young starlet let alone a woman in her 40s. 

      I’m also getting tired of Ginnifer’s borderline stinkface in every picture I see of her. She has a nice smile, I wished she would show it more. 

      A lot more misses than hits in this group, but they can’t all be winners-just for more for us to judge! :)

    • Laurie Bergman

      China Chow…WOW! She is, as you often say, shutting it down.  That neckline is haute cat’s cradle. 

    • TheOriginalLulu

      I have two pieces of advice for Sandra Lee:
      1- Wear a bra
      2- Step away from the spray tanner

      • Laurie Bergman

        Like x 1,000.

    • Susan Crawford

      China Chow – right up there with Cate the Great for this amazing gown. She is like a goddess!

      Jessica Alba – smiling! And so she should, because she looks terrific.

      Gisele Bundchen – babyhead boobs, toeverhang shoes, scraped-back hair and washed out make-up. Not a win, Mrs. Brady.

      SJP – No. Way, way, waaay to young for you.

      Mila Jovovich – Miss Carwash 2012.

      Leslie Mann – lost a pre-Gala battle with a paper shredder.

      Ginnifer Goodwin – adorable and fresh. LOVE that color on her!

      Christina Ricci – She looks as though the dress is devouring her. She is too teeny to carry this much fabric around.

    • BeeBeauNYC

      That man behind SJP is gorgeous. Leslie Mann definitely delivered FIERCE.

      • susu11

        The man embracing the other guy behind SPJ? Is that Hugh Jackman? Cause I concur. Gorgeous

    • Amy Coorick

      Is it just me or do a lot of these people look unspeakably orange?

    • janedonuts

      I love you guys so much. HA at the burn on Gisele! HA! 

      Also, I thought at first that Ivanka Trump was her mother, and YIKES. 

    • Beardslee

      China Chow – what an amazing dress.  The best one so far.

    • Violina23

      LOVE LOVE LOVE Jessica Alba here. She looks stunning!

    • Belle Burnett

      waiting for Beyonce!

    • Eva_baby

      That dress ages Ivanka so that she looks older than Ivana.

      SJP — I am sorry, I disagree.  That dress is not cute.

      And finally, why are so many of these women so darned ORANGE!  They can’t all have gone to the same bad spray tanner can they?  Is it a lighting issue?  It seems to affect the ones outside moreso than the ones inside.

    • Heather

      Christina Ricci’s head appears glued on to her (or someone else’s) body. And her feet are on backwards.

    • cleep1000

      I think Debra Messing looks pretty good. The hair is gorgeous. The dress color is just right. And she never has to worry about a boob falling out!

    • Culture_Girl

      I love SJP, but her dress looks like the flannel nightgowns I wore as a little girl.

    • Jennifer Coleman

      Hehe, Amy Poehler broke into Cate Blanchett’s closet. Well, she looks better than she should in that dress.
      China Chow gave that dress the old college try, but the bottom proportions are screwy.
      The rear of Christina Ricci is not bad, as it’s all dress. Sweetie, you’re tiny & gigantabows are not going to change that fact.
      I know there’s got to be something wrong with Ginnifer Goodwin’s outfit – it I stare at her picture a little longer, I’ll find it….
      Ivanka is channeling her mom in that dress & that’s not a good thing.
      I see Lena Dunham thought she would try to highlight some downtown quirky designer with no tailoring skills, honey, not at the Met ball. That thing is a non-fitting wreck. I’m offended.
      Marion Cotilliard: nice try, but it’s still a schitzo ‘am I am mini or a maxi’ dress.
      I just think Kwanza cake when I see Sandra Lee and I’m still traumatized.
      SJP, I am officially on strike until you restyle your hair. 

    • TieDye64

      Kinda digging China’s Chow’s dress, though it sort of looks like a bell to me. Ginnifer Goodwin looking happy to be there as per usual. Christina Ricci, um, kind of freaking me out!

    • MsKitty

      Sandra Lee needs a bra in the worst way. It looks like her girls are brushing her belly button.

    • PeaceBang

      YIKES! That was a very serious case of Very Ugly Dress going around at that event — good thing Jessica Alba was spared. Is smiling against Ginnifer Goodwin’s religion? You can tell that Debra Messing is a New Yorker because she had the phone number of a really good hair stylist, while all the other girls apparently had to call in that girl Donna from MasterCuts. 

    • Lucía Valencia

      That Dutchess photobombing is PRICELESS.

    • queeniethebold

      I think Ginnifer Goodwin looks truly gorgeous and agree with TLo on the fab color combo of the dress and the icy-blue shoes.

      But … Christina Ricci! Ack! Where did her arms go?! She is an armless giant-headed alien! i’m amazed at how bad she looks, because she is so tiny and often wears clothes so well. 

    • Call me Bee

      This bunch is just plain sad.  Too many sheers, wacky shapes, ugly shoes. 
      I just have to say it–shoes are little works of art, but totally useless if heels are so high as to render them unwearable.  You can tell if a woman should be wearing a lower heel if their toes are hanging off the end, their heels are slipping off as they walk or they are standing in that goofy pigeon-toed way; a telltale sign that their feet are hurting and they don’t have the leg strength to be standing on the balls of their feet all night long.  Instead of complimenting the total look, these shoes just ruin it. See: C Ricci, Gennifer Goodwin,L Dunham, etc. 
      There.  I said it.  I’ll move on. 

      China Chow FTW. Love that hem detail!
      I disagree about Mila’s look, because I think she’s bringing it.  She knows how to wear a pair of heels! 
      Sandra Lee is moving onto my Celeb Utter Dislike list.
      Isn’t Jessica A’s dress a replica of the dress E Sosa did for his final runway? I think I see that a lot with MK’s designs…some look vaguely like PR designs done by various contestants. Or…maybe it’s just me.

    • Laura Goulding

      Remember how much Michael Kors gushed & raved about Emilio’s gold gown at the end of his final collection? Well, yeah, he definitely meant it.

      • Call me Bee

        See what I’m sayin’?  Exssssaaaaaaaaahtly! 

    • Candigirl1968

      Ivanka has a habit of dressing too maturely, and this dress is no exception.  

    • Judy_J

      So it was Christina Ricci who was being devoured by the big pink bow!

    • mom2ab

      Giselles shoes aren’t the only thing that is too small- looks like her boobs are being crushed out of the top of the dress. Ouch.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      Can someone please explain to me how the hell Sandra Lee gets invited to these events?

      • Orange Girl

        She’s dating Andrew Cuomo.  Otherwise, seems random, I know.

        • Jessica O’Connell

           Oooh ok thanks for telling me! Because yeah, SO random!

    • sagecreek

      Can’t agree with you two on SJP, that looks like a Simplicity pattern from 1974.

    • Miss_Led

      Oh, God, Debra is putting the “Mess” in Messing with that outfit.

    • Snickleboom

      Debra Messing is wearing a black hole in dress form.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      I think Ginnifer Goodwin wins this round.  She looks beautiful, and way more comfortable than she usually looks.  Hair and makeup are flawless.  Love the ice blue shoes with the gown.

    • ecallaw

      Brooklyn Decker looks like she’s going to a friend’s wedding, or to church.

    • EEKstl

      Props to Ginnifer Goodwin, who (finally) got it right.  That is one gorgeous dress.  But she really should smile, she’s in a gazillion dollars with of borrowed, shiny things!  

    • abigail3

      SJP looks like a nightmare in that granny gown!! “Gorgeous”?? Are you kidding?

    • Aurumgirl

      Ginnifer’s gown and shoes are gorgeous, but she looks so angry and tight with that spackled-down pixie do.  That’s a mystery to me: when you’re surrounded by some  exaggerated jokes of fashion every where you look (SJP, Beyonce, Christina Ricci and that Lena woman), wouldn’t laughter be your natural expression?  

    • formerlyAnon

      From this lot: Most successful, hands down: Ms China Chow!

      Runners up: Sandra Lee, Jessica Alba.

      One step from runner up, if-only-that-neckline-weren’t-quite-what-it-is: Ivanka Trump.

    • Rebecca Johnson

      Ivanka is slowly morphing into her mother.

    • formerlyAnon

      Totally a scroll-down “if only” tragedy” : Christina Ricci.

      Despite the dubiously large demi-cape/bow/thing apparent behind her shoulder, if there’d been no peach split train (?) and the black had continued to full length, she might have pulled this off and looked fabulous, I think.

    • How to Faint

      Oh, god. Christina Ricci. Honey, no.  I saw the back of that dress in another photo and wondered who the hell the sad sack fashion victim with the ugly tattoo was. Now I know. :(

    • Pennymac

      CHINA! CHOW! thats a WERQ for me. She doesn’t disappoint. Unlike so many, many others….

    • Carlodog

      Leslie Mann?  WTF is up with that mess?  Usually she looks nice.  I can’t find anything I like about her outfit. 

    • Qitkat

      ChinaChow! WOWSACHACHOWZA!!

      Despite a lot of the deserved snarkiness, I am SERIOUSLY impressed with most of the gals on all the Met postings. Some very very beautiful gowns graced a lot of lovely ladies that evening. I expect some of the dresses that didn’t photograph well in stills looked amazing in movement.

    • Stubenville

      Oh puhleeze! TLo, you’re overcaffinated! SJP looks like a sister wife and she’s wearing heinous MATCHING SHOES!

      • Rand Ortega

         LOL! Stubenville, FTW!

    • Stubenville

      Too bad you don’t have a picture of the back of Christina Ricci’s gown – it was very Audrey Hepburn and I think it looked adorable on her.

    • Rand Ortega

      SJP: Who cares. Hugh Jackman’s hugging some lucky bastard behind her.

      I dislike Lena Dunham intensely. She’s unattractive, unkempt & untalented. I think her show is a self conscious, entitled, self absorbed bore. Her entire look here is terrible. Maybe that’s part of whatever charm she holds, but I neither get it or want to.

      Someone has to sit Christina Ricci down & gently break it to her that she’s not 5’10”. I worry about the day she puts on a model’s sample, deems it perfect for her & it swallows her whole, never to be seen again.

      Debra Messing has got to stop wearing the same dress that flattered her 10 years ago. When she was stick thin, the navel revealing drape looked amazing on her. After a decade & a baby, NSM.

      Ivanka is channeling her mom– *shudders*

      G. Goodwin has climbed Everest considering how she dressed barely a year ago. Love that color!

      China Chow– Slap ya Mama awesome. That bottom is amazing.

      Brooklyn Decker’s gown looks old. Not vintage. Just…old.

      • Presumptuous Insect

        Double ditto on that craphound, Dunham.

        Also, sorry, but Sandra, you need a bra here.

    • kimmeister

      Was everyone on Christina Ricci’s right able to see her entire boob?
      That is the best thing Ginnifer has ever worn, hands down.
      Did Leslie style her hair by sticking her finger into an electrical socket?
      That doesn’t even look like Marion Cotillard, I would have never have known it was her if not for the caption.
      I hope Milla’s dress has built-in undies, because I can’t see how she could have gone the night without revealing her goods.

    • marilyn

      Ginnifer always looks dowdy.  It looks like a bridesmaid’s dress.

    • Pamela

      Hahahaha!!  Christina Ricci looks like she’s digging her undies out of her crack!  Hahahaha!!!  Man, you people are harshin’ on Lena D.-what’d she ever do to you?  If lack of talent is something to be attacked for, you have a long line of people in front of Ms. Dunham.  Seriously.

    • Caaro3

      I really don’t know who Jaime King is, but she should at least be nominated for the TLo equivalent of The Razzies for that get-up.  Looks like she dug the dress up on an archeological dig at the site of The Long Branch and dry cleaned it.

    • Caaro3

      I really don’t know who Jaime King is, but she should at least be nominated for the TLo equivalent of The Razzies for that get-up.  Looks like she dug the dress up on an archeological dig at the site of The Long Branch and dry cleaned it.

      Wow, Ginnifer Goodwin, who I think is one of the most sad red carpet dressers out there, really brings it.  Gorgeous cut and color and love the super short pixie hair.

      SJP needs to return her dress to 1988.  Stat.

      I gasped in horror at SJPs dress. Talk about flammable-looking. Also stiff, unflattering, and poorly styled. 

    • librarygrrl64

      Did any of you happen to catch the back view of China Chow’s outfit? I saw it on a certain popular feminist site that has a regular fashion spot. Starts with a J. Anyway, it’s actually a black pantsuit/catsuit with a dress…sewn on?…to the front of it. They (hilariously and correctly) compared it to trying a dress on by putting the hanger over your neck so the dress hangs in front. It’s interesting and she’s working the hell out of it, but I think the frontal-only shot is deceptive.

    • Sue_Asponte

      Hmm, now that I have seen several other angles on Christina Ricci’s dress (and the fug girls commentary), I’m kind of loving it. It does look crazy in this one shot though.

    • michelle shields

      Sandra Lee’s boobs are just a hangin’. Ew.

    • nannypoo

      I thought Christina Ricci had learned that bangs are a girl’s best friend when her forehead is so huge. Her dress is also hideous. And why is she posing like that? Did her underpants get stuck in her butt crack? And Tits Trump has done it again. WTF? She’s a gorgeous woman, but seriously? Sarah Jessica Parker is never afraid to take a fashion risk, and this one really makes her look a fool. The winner of this segment for me is Amy Poehler, and that is not good for the rest of them.

      Lena Dunham isn’t pregnant, is she? It’s just the dress?

    • guest2visits

      Saw Brooklyn Decker flitting around in this dress on several sites; I think it may be my top 3 just because it works so well on her.
      Also love Jessica Alba’s and even all that fabric Amber Heard is swimming in seems to be working for her.
      The truely strange: that Fotini dress, the Thakoon, the Christmas dress on Greta, the Christmas dress on Lena, and the look-look-look
       at my tacky, barely contained, furniture-strapped boobage on the Trumpette.

    • glennethph

      Ivanka looks like her mother.

    • elzatelzabelz

      Ugh, SJP. UGH. I do not understand her fashion choices. Jessica Alba looks amazing though and Emma Roberts looks as good as she’s ever looked on the RC (I think). 

    • LinXGUA

      I wish that SJP take Ricci and Dunham apart to bundle them up under her sheet: “shhhhh darlings, it’s ok, let’s go home.”


      Oh and Goodwin looks adorable. I don’t know if that’s the reaction that she’s looking for, but… Cute!

    • algaechick

      I don’t think I’ve heard of Topshop before this post. I’m pretty sure I know why now. Is their regular line paper stamp cutouts?

    • granddelusion

      Sjp looks like a powder room. Poehler’s bust looks too small to me, but I love how pleased she looks.

    • AWS

      Loved the dresses of Amber Heard, Amy Poehler (you know Will Arnett is a lucky gent), and Ivanka Trump.

      Hollywood and NYC please fire and dis-invite Ginnifer Goodwin to EVERYTHING so I don’t have to see her sulky fucking face anymore!

      And please Goddess, let me find a shower curtain as pretty as the one Sarah Jessica Parker wore…  Thanking you in advance…

    • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

      eek, SJP. No.

    • AngelaGreen

      Really with Sandra Lee?  I thought her boobs looked like half filled water balloons in that thing.  Bleh.

    • Lisa

      I’m honestly not crazy about any of the looks!

    • It Hurt’s To Be In Love

      Honey, I do declare!  Jamie King’s dress wouldve been a flash if worn by Mary Walton, but not this day and age boo. 

    • e jerry powell

      I feel as though Ricci is actively working to make the dress look bad.  The whole pigeon-toed stance is the giveaway.

    • Jessica Goldstein

      Oh wow. Maybe it looked different in person or moving. Here I think SJP’s dress screams mutton dressed as lamb. Don’t like the hair, either.

    • becky sayers

      DM is def suffering from too much and too long of  hair as she ages.  The 90’s supermodel hair just isn’t working for her now. She would look great with a chic shorter do especially in that hair color, while I think GG should add some hair back on to her head :)( i do like the blue/coral combo though. As far as the dresses, i have no red carpet envy out of this bunch. 

    • Sophie Collier

      Giselle is a model.  They have no idea that shoes are supposed to fit.  They must learn to stuff their feet into whatever the stylist hands them.  Poor dear.

      • guest2visits

        I was thinking along the same lines; – she’s a model, so why such a painful pose, – those shoes look like they’re
        about crippling her.

    • Vera

      Ivanka look like a saloon girl
      Christina looks like you can knock her over with one pinky. Way too much dress.
      I love Lena and Amy.  They are smart, talented, and funny, but are *someone* needs to step forward and help them on the RC.
      I like SJP’s look too. The cuffs bring it out.

    • murt

      I liked Milla Jovovich’s dress – fit the theme of the night well and looks fun.

    • UglyCasanova

      Amy Poehler just couldn’t leave her dog at home so she has been dragging the dog around all night.

    • Liz

      Christina Ricci looks like she’s picking a wedgie.

    • J MN

      China Chow for the win.  Very cool dress with interesting string detail at the top while falling to a clean column.  She looks like she’s standing on a model’s platform, can’t imagine the shoes.  

    • JaneDC

      Mystery solved! Christina Ricci was the giant bow wither back to Diana Agron in part one of this post. Why am I not too surprised?

    • Scarlet39

      I really love that Thakoon dress, but CR is just too petite for it. 

      And what is with the pink/green combos?  It’s like a bad wedding party from 1960!

    • MissAnnieRN

      That is the best I’ve ever seen Ginnifer Goodwin look on the RC.  Dear Giselle – you are gorgeous and you are married to the love of my life.  This is too severe a hairstyle for you.  And your poor left boob.  That looks painful.  PS, your husband is your best accessory.  Jamie King – you wore Topshop to THE MET BALL?  ANNA WINTOUR WAS THERE.  WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?  Ivanka Trump is another irrational girl crush for me, and I gotta say – she looks at LEAST 15 years older than she should in this picture.  But I love that dress.

    • JimMcC

      Loving SJP and Ginnifer, but…CHINA CHOW! I have no words for how much I love that dress. And her in it.

    • tsid2012

      WOW!  When Gisele pulls her hair back like that she loses her “pretty”, doesn’t she?  A little frightening….

    • crush on you

      - Even if Christina Ricci lost that hideous giant bow, that still wouldn’t be her dress. It would look way better, but still not hers. 
      – Love Ginnifer Goodwin’s. She looks great.- Greta and Ivanka aged about 15 years each when they put those dresses on.- Absolute best of this page: Jessica Alba and China Chow.- Absolute worst: Lena Dunham. Not her: Dress. Shoes. Pose. Hairdo. Makeup. Expression. The only thing working here is the color on her skin tone. Go home and find a better one in that color. Accessorize and style accordingly. And come out like you mean to. So obvious she didn’t want to be there.

    • knitnorth

      I don’t understand why but totally love SJP’s dress

    • Laylalola

      That’s probably the best I’ve ever seen Lena Dunham look.

    • Danielle Sekikawa

      Holy Shnikes!  I had that wallpaper in my room when i was a little girl! There is nothing gorgeous about wall paper.

    • Shawn EH

      I’m gonna have to go for SJP, because she’s so very her!Sandra Lee, take off that goddamn tiara!

    • Jen R

      I’m just going to say it: that dress makes Greta Gerwig look pregnant.

    • Allison Woods

      I have an irrational hate of Zac Posen’s work. Edit, please.

      China Chow, I bow down to your tiny awesomeness. Werk.

    • LambeeBaby

      Is Lena Dunham pregnant? It is an awful question to have to ask, but that is the only excuse for that dress-thing.
      Can’t agree with the Sarah Jessica Holly Hobby outfit. It is soooo hiddy.
      Sandra Lee’s body looks tone, but she looks like “Lady Liberty”…give me your poor, your tired ass show girls…
      and Milla Jovovich must have taken all of the second place ribbons at the horse show.

    • butter nut

      ginnifer is finally dressed appropriately for an event! and she looks better than she’s ever looked before.  also ivanka looks EXACTLY like her mother did 20 yrs ago.  also too, dear lena dunham, you have the biggest show of the season, you’re on top of the world, get a fucking stylist. you can afford it.  

    • Zelda Edmunds

      SJP’s shoes are covered in the same fabric.  That is insane.

    • frankystein123

      The only one who looked even close to presentable was Ms. Alba, all the other presentations… shudder.

    • bellafigura1

      Amber Heard, fugly head to toe.
      Lena Dunham has shot right to the #1 spot on my irrational-hatred list.
      Christina Ricci’s dress would have been perfection without all the business behind.
      Debra Mess might have WERQed with six inches added.  Six solid inches.
      Emma Roberts, IN, age appropriate, well-fitted, befitting her level of “star”.
      GG’s lovely except the hair is starting to seem kinda OCD.
      Gisele, yawn.
      Greta Gerwig, Morticia Adams.
      Ivanka Trump, again forgot the accessory that would have clinched it: whip.  And LOOSEN UP YOUR HAIR.
      Jamie King, ongoing trashy vibe.
      Jessica Alba, totally disagree, I hate that color gold and the dress is average.  Although, MK is adorable in the background.
      Dead on T-Lo, about the Lanvin on Leslie Mann & the shoes.
      Marion Cotilliard kills it.  Love (and also not a fan of the sheer bottom thing).
      When Milla looks bad, I feel bad.
      Sandra Lee, dressing way above her station.  She is not Helen Mirren.  Lose the doorknockers and the tiara, and hoist ‘em up.
      I kind of agree about SJP’s dress, but I don’t think it’s her dress.  One must edit twee mercilessly after a certain age, and she’s got it going on here in multiples.

    • JD Spaulding

      Ivanka is turning into her mother. FAB!  A note to Leslie Mann – Courtney Love is not a look to aim for…
