“True Blood” Season 5 Premiere Red Carpet

Posted on May 31, 2012

Well, we got the First Couple out of the way, so let’s see how the rest of the cast and assorted guests did. [SPOILER: Not that great.]

 

Adina Porter

 Pretty color, but the bodice looks dangerously un-fitted and the skirt’s too shiny.

 

Alexander Skarsgard

His shirt collar’s driving us nuts and the jacket seems a bit tight, but he did okay.

 

Camilla Luddington

 Enh. S’alright.

 

Carolyn Hennesy

Yowsa. You want to show off the goods, be our guest, but the Ethel Merman hair has GOT to go, honey. This is so not a chic or flattering look.

 

Carrie Preston

She usually makes a terrible showing on the red carpet, so we’re pleasantly surprised by how much we like this on her. That’s some wiggy-looking hair, though.

 

Deborah Ann Woll in Armani

Hey, what if they re-did Sex and the City – except all four gals are GHOSTS?

It’s a cute dress, but it’s just too much white for you to handle, Casper.

 

Joe Manganiello

While this is all working very well for us for a variety of reasons, we would be remiss if we didn’t point out that the lack of color is not helping. There is such a thing as too much gray, Joe.

Also, the vest, plus the scarf, plus whatever that thing is around your neck is taking you dangerously close to Johnny Depp territory and he wound up turning into an elderly gay windchime.

 

Krysten Ritter in Alexander McQueen

 Fierce.

 

Lauren Bowles

 Awful.

 

Michelle Forbes in David Meister

 Not bad, but it needs jewelry and she needs a makeup consult.

 

Rutina Wesley

We like it better with the belt, but once again, we think she should’ve had fun with it and worn one white shoe. Also, those platform pumps look terrible with this dress.

 

Ryan Kwanten

Some of the boykittens will disagree, but we’re starting to form an opinion about those white-soled shoes that keep showing up. They look too casual with a suit. And when you pair them with white laces, they look like bowling shoes for nuns. Pair them with jeans and we’re fine with them.

Nice suit, though.

 

Sam Trammell

 They look like they’re at Parent-Teacher night.

 

Tara Buck in R-Mine Bespoke

We’ll give her credit for being on-point, but that is one disconcerting dress.  We’re thinking it’s supposed to be taken in a cheeky, “prom queen gone bad” sort of way, but it really just looks like she was in a car accident.

 

Tina Majorino

 Honey, we don’t mean to be rude, but your space dress is kinda freaking us out.
