American Horror Story Premiere Red Carpet

Posted on October 15, 2012

We don’t know how we’re going to fit it into our already heavy TV-viewing schedule, but we are SO PUMPED for the premiere of American Horror Story this week.

Hit it, bitches!


Andrew Rannells

 Kudos to him for putting in the effort, but we’re thinking this is not the best cut of suit for him.


Chord Overstreet

 Go home, you lazy thing.


Chris Colfer

 Chris, you’re giving stylish gay men a bad name here. We are disappointed.


Dean Geyer

Cute, if basic. Pull that collar up.


Evan Peters

Way too much blue going on in one outfit, although we do love those shoes. Also, even the thinnest guy is going to look like he has a paunch if he leaves his jacket unbuttoned while wearing a vest.


Fiona Gubelmann

 Basic, but no real complaints.


Georgia King in Jay Godfrey

 That’s a killer dress and it looks great on her, but her hair and makeup probably could have been a bit more dramatic.


Jane Lynch

We like that she’s wearing a print blouse instead of the satin-y solid-color ones she used to sport all the time. The only regret we have about cutting Glee out of our lives is that we don’t get a dose of her at least a couple times a month. She’s the only thing about that show we miss.


Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Reem Acra



Jessica Lange in MaxMara

 Also fabulous – although a metallic shoe and possibly some hosiery would have been much better.


Kevin McHale

Love the jacket, although it looks a bit casual for the red carpet. Then again, compared to his two co-stars up there, he’s downright formal. Love the boots.


Lea Michele in Giorgio Armani

 Of course.


Lily Rabe

 Not loving the neckline with the long sleeves. She looks pretty good, though.


Naya Rivera

 We love the sexy secretary look on her; she can work the shit out of it. Hate the conjunctivitis eye makeup.


Sarah Paulson in Reem Acra

 Pretty. Take an inch off the hem and it would be perfect.


Zachary Quinto

Another one who puts the lie to the myth that gay men are all innately fashionable. Not that this is a bad look at all. In fact, it’s pretty great. But the fit on that jacket is tragic.

  • Anyone know where I can get Evan Peter’s shoes!? 

    • Susan Crawford

      If you find out where to get them, let me know! I would rock a pair myself for some autumnal chic! Super-cool.

      And Jessica Lange in MaxMara? Uber-cool. A great match.

  • StellaZafella

    Lynch and Lange, YAY!

    Does Lea Michelle have that dress on backwards?

    Zachary Quinto teaches math.

    • teensmom99

      This is an insult to my daughter’s old math teacher who had the nerd chic thing down.  And Lange shows ’em how it’s done.

      • FloridaLlamaLover

        My old math teacher was nerd before nerd WAS nerd.  Picture if you will…1978…crimson and tan plaid pantsuit…cat eye glasses…bobbed hair…thick glasses in those gigantically oversized frames that we all had (don’t lie, you know you did too, if you had glasses in the 70’s!)…clunky heeled shoes…but my math teacher was a gawky woman.  Who taught my sister 11 years earlier.  And still couldn’t explain math to those of us who just didn’t “get” how algebra works…CURSE YOU, ALGEBRA!!!!

        • Melvis Velour

          I tell you, with Math teachers, you either had an absolute gem who could make a rock figure out fractions or some totally ineffective boob who could make 2 + 2 = 22.  There is NO middle ground…

    • littlemissstrange

       Mmhmm. Where you from? Cause obviously I need to go there if this is what your math teachers look like.

      Love my sexy nerd boy <3<3<3

      • StellaZafella

         No offense intended…
        ZQ could teach me ANYTHING! (And my math teachers were all in San Francisco Unified Public Schools soooo yeah, come get you some anytime 😉  )

        and seriously, it really does look like Lea Michele’s dress is back to front.

      • DTLAFamilies

        A friend of mine got to sit next to Quinto during sexual harassment training at NBC if you can believe it. Was I jealous? Yes. Yes, I was. 

  • Janet B

    Zachary should’ve taken off the jacket, it’s horrible.

  • No Jonathan Groff? If there’s any red carpet he and Quinto should do together, it would be this one, wouldn’t it? I have had such a crush on Groff ever sine “Taking woodstock”. 

    • FashionShowAtLunch

      Me too!  I had no idea who he was, but it was immediately clear how magnetic he is. Just so sexy.  Also that was an entirely underrated movie. 

    • Totally agree! Where is Jonathan?

  • MilaXX

    I find it hysterical that the RC for the AHS premiere was packed with Ryan Murphy employees. It’s like attendance was mandatory or something. For my money despite the eye makeup Naya Rivera  takes the win, with Jessica Lange a close second. However Sarah Paulson seems to frump up everything she wears.

    • Is that why all the Glee cast was there?  I was scratching my head over that.

    • pattyw

      Thank you! I was struggling to make the connection between the two shows.

  • Roosevelt 85

    You guys should really give Glee another shot. The Rachel/Kurt NYC is the only thing keeping that show interesting. The “Break Up” episode had me in tears. Please watch it again! 

    • VioletFem

      I was surprised at how good that episode was! I was on the verge of tears by the end of that episode.

    •  Can pretty safely just watch only the New York stuff, and it’s a good half hour show.  The Lima stuff is completely unnecessary.

    • KateWo

      I am liking it too…some stuff makes no sense ( like how a student and a unpaid intern are living in NYC) but whatever. Love SJP and Kurt together. I want a Kurt spin off in NYC.

    • Not a chance in hell.

    • Sobaika

      Ooo, we had two very different reactions to this season. I am so over Ryan Murphy writing for Lea Michele and Chris Colfer and awkwardly shoehorning in the rest of the graduates. I’d enjoy it a lot more if they’d just focus on the new kids or Tina, Blaine, etc.

    • Remind me why they didn’t do a spinoff instead of doubling the cast and storylines?

  • pop_top

    I love that “Of course” was all that needed to be said for Lea. 

    • MoHub

       It’s all that ever needs to be said about her, and even typing that is more effort than it’s worth.

  • filmcricket

    Mrs. Channing Tatum’s dress looks fine from this angle, but is actually completely sheer down both sides, hence the awful illusion netting holding up the bodice. It’s horrendous.

    Also, in my head, Chris Colfer went up to The Sev at this party and offered to be one of her minions. His cherubic face would be the perfect cover.

    • kimmeister

      Whoa, hadn’t even noticed the illusion netting before you pointed it out.

    • kschwarting

      And her hair is absolutely tragic.

  • RocknRollmom

    Jessica and Max Mara!!!  My favorites.  And I agree re shoes and hose, but at least her legs aren’t eggshell white like mine so I will give her a pass.  Naya Rivera is stunning.  I want that outfit! Six inches off Paulson’s Reem Acra–lovely girl, awful clothes.

  • altalinda

    So, faced with falling ratings, the folks at Glee decided to merge that show with American Horror Story?  Now that would be fun to watch.

    •  Yeah, I was wondering why there are so many Glee people there…

      • glennethph

        Ryan Murphy probably mandated and forced the Glee and New Normal cast to show up.

    • glennethph

      Oh goody, Jessica Lange offing the Glee kids one by one while ZQ and Chris Colfer duel to the death in fabulous outfits.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        Now that would be a show worth watching!  Also a Lange v. Lynch deathmatch.  🙂

  • snarkykitten

    at least Lea is only showing off some of the good china

    • understateddiva

       I know, I was thinking that this is a step in the right direction! 

      • kschwarting

        Absolutely!  I don’t hate the dress at all, although I’d like to see her try something not slinky.

    • lonepear

      Indeed. She looks pretty good here, actually; if only I hadn’t seen her chest about a million times before, the dress might have the desired effect.

  • mayavaly

    Love Evan Peters’ look. I don’t think I’ve ever commented on a bloke’s outfit before, but he looks brilliant. I even quite like the fact that the suit is a bit wrinkly because it looks as if he’s actually wearing it rather than the other way around. On a side note, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, despite the fact that I have no idea who she is, is also killing it here.  

  • julesj

    Jessica Lane needs to wear Lily Rabe’s sleeves. 

  • Sorry but Naya Rivera looks like a True Blood reject. 

  • With the exception of Chord Overstreet and Chris Colfer, everyone looks like they made an effort, and it paid off (to varying degrees of success). Most of these carpet-walkers could use a tweak here and there, but no one crashed and burned. 

  • berkeleygirl

    Lea Michele is officially a parody of herself.

  • l_c_ann

    Are you sure that that’s Jessica Lang and not the similar lady, Kim,  from Sex and the City?

  • Yaaay!  An “Of course” post!

    • Jean Marie Downing

       Hee.  The fug girls covered the same red carpet and when I saw lea I rushed over here simply to see the “of course” post

  • PeaceBang

    Wait, so all the “Glee” people are on “American Horror Story” now? Actually, that would be a great mash-up. They could kill off Rachel Berry on the first episode. 

  • I look at Lea Michelle and think “of course” then i scroll down to the caption, and it says “of course” i laughed myself.

  • afabulous50

    You know, looking at this line-up made me feel pretty good about myself.  They get paid a LOT of money to look good, and designers throw clothes at them – but they don’t look that much better than the rest of us.

  • nannypoo

    Lea Michelle is trying out a new face here. She reminds me of the Andersen Cooper Ridiculist featuring Courtney Stodden and her pervy husband on the sofa. Naya Rivera’s hair is awful. Sarah Paulson’s dress is too fluffy. Jessica Lange looks great and I love how she’s posing. She looks comfortable with herself. I don’t know who Fiona Gubelmann is, but that is a fabulously unforgettable name.

    I cannot wait for this show. I loved last season so much.

  • FashionShowAtLunch

    Yet another red carpet where everyone looks like they’re attending a completely different event. How are they announcing the dress codes for these things? Do they announce dress codes at all, or do attendees just have to guess?

  • VeryClaire

    Is Kevin McHale parking cars out front?

  • Oh, it’s going to be a bad day — it took me until halfway down the page before I figured out why there were so many Glee people there along with half the cast of the New Normal.  Any time I start my morning that dopey, it’s only going to get worst.

  • Why does “of course” never cease to crack me up!

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Sarah Paulson looks like she got attacked by an evil muppet.

  • colfer and overstreet may be a little too casual, but i also think they look pretty put together.

    dewan-tatum: not seeing the fabulous here. looks like a bath towl to me.

    michele & quinto look pretty sharp!

  • If I had to dress as Kurt Hummel for a living I’d probably dress down as much as possible off the set too.

  • Trisha26

    Totally agree with your assessments, TLo – except Jenna’s dress (and all others like it) look like bathwraps/towels – do designers have an aversion to straps?, and Kevin McHale looks like he’s going to coach a football game in that jacket.

  • sweetlilvoice

    Why is the entire cast of Glee there? Do they get killed in the show? If so, I’ll start watching again. Ms Lange is lovely as always…would love a throw down between her and Jane Lynch.

  • HK4Seven

    Every time I see Lea Michele now I think to myself “Of Course.” and then I scroll down and you’ve written that and I giggle.  Poor little thing!

  • CMS

    I can’t work out if Sarah Paulson is carrying a huge weirdly shaped bag made from the base material for the dress, or the flower pattern leans left.
