Producers Guild Awards 2013 Red Carpet

Posted on January 29, 2013

Because the award-giving never stops in Hollywood, darlings! It never stops! God help us!


Amanda Seyfried in Roland Mouret

It’s a shame it got a little wrinkled, because we kinda love this on her. Great color; great shape.

Iffy shoes, though.


Anne Hathaway in Erdem

 Pretty, but we don’t love the way it’s shaped. The shoes were a bold choice. Not loving the hair.


Hannah Simone in Rafael Cennamo

 Prom. Although we suppose we should be nicer, since she’s not wearing a freaking black or black lace dress.

Hit it, widows:


Jennifer Garner in Oscar de la Renta

 This is a cute dress, but proportionally speaking, she could’ve used an inch or two added to the hem. HATE the shoes.



Jessica Alba in Elie Saab Couture

 We feel like we’ve seen this dress so many times.


Julia Stiles in AllSaints

 Judging by the other attendees, this doesn’t quite feel appropriate for the event. Love the shoes, but the hipster dress should’ve been saved for something a little more casual.



Juliana Margulies in Vintage

 Simple, but it gets the job done.



Kerry Washington in Marchesa

 We could do without the lacy accents, but then we suppose it would be a pretty boring dress.



Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott and Naomi Watts in Victoria Beckham

Wait, what? Is this one of those Hobbit camera tricks where Naomi Watts is actually ten feet away from Nicole Kidman? Or is Nicole Kidman a giant woman and somehow, that information has eluded us up until now? Is Naomi Watts a little person?

Whatever the reason for this shocking size discrepancy, we like both their dresses.

  • Nicole Kidman is pretty statuesque and Naomi Watts is fairly petite (and she’s not wearing very high heels).

    • Kristin McNamara

      Almost 6 feet tall. IMDB lists NK at 5’11” and NW at 5’4″…. sooo, there you go.

      • You would never guess from seeing them separately. I always assumed Naomi Watts was tall.

      • Sally Brownson

        In addition, they could be wearing different heel heights, exacerbating the discrepancy. 

        • Under that dress, Nicole is secretly standing on Keith Urban.

          • Adriana_Paula

            You are awesome.

          • You almost made me spit out my water hahahahaha

          • Le_Sigh

            Barbara Affolter – you win the internet.

          • Nah, the only thing Nicole has crushed under her heel is Tom Cruise. Which doesn’t add much height.

      • Louise Bryan

        Wikipedia has Naomi Watts at 5’5″….still that’s a 6 inch height difference.

  • teensmom99

    Anne Hathway’s dress looks like what my daughter and her buddies wear to bat mitzvahs.  I get that she’s saving the oomph for the big O, but still.

    • And she better not disappoint! 😀

    • Sobaika

      The look itself is cute, but it’s not working on her. Not right for the venue (or anything with a red carpet involved) and too colorful. Her stance isn’t helping in that photo either.

      • I like that she really switched up her look. A- for effort. It would have been a full “A” with a belt, a non-satin clutch, and something else with her hair; not sure what, just something else; something less “I’m washing my face in a Neutrogena commercial”. (I don’t mean that in a bitchy way. I love her!)

    • anne, thats not your dress.
      but it is a cute dress.

  • Sobaika

    The fashion for this event is sort of all over the place. I’m pretty sure Nicole Kidman is wearing very tall (5’10 ish) and probably wearing heels on top of it.

  • By this point I’d be tempted to show up in jeans and a hoodie.

    • Nicholas

      With a hangover and pizza stains on my clothes.

      They must be contractually obligated to poledance at this event.

  • Nicole and Naomi are supposedly Besties, right? Crazy that I’ve never seen a picture of the two together til now.

    • There’s a lot on the web. They did a lot of red carpets together when one or both were single.
      They’ve been friends since they were 14.

  • Naomi Watts looks about the same height Tom Cruise was when he stood next to Nicole. She’s quite tall.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    i would say Nicole is a good 6 inches taller than Naomi in bare feet, so if her heels are higher, voila!

  • Imasewsure

    Nicole the Giant and Naomi the Little get my votes here. The rest are meh at best

  •  Nicole Kidman has 6 inches on Naomi Watts. And that’s without heels.

  • karenbttc

    Naomi Watts is 5’5″, Nicole Kidman is 5’11″…

    And Julia Stiles is looking… odd.

    • Jecca2244

      Right? i wonder if she has been ill. She looks bloated. Not trying to be mean. Just concerned. 

      • Fordzo

        Her face is always round, but you’re right, her cheeks look swollen, and they seem to be squishing her eyes.  

        • I had the same thought. First two explanations to hand (that aren’t just “a weird picture”): Pregnancy hormones? Or work done?

          • Fordzo

            You are much, much nicer than me.  I immediately thought “coke bloat”.

          • Fordzo

            My sister is a physician, and she just cast a vote for bulimia.  

            Aren’t we a positive family?

          • ecallaw1977

             I’m definitely not a physician, but it reminds me of the “moon face” my mom got when she had to be on steroid treatment.

          • Fordzo

            Another thought that crossed my mind. But don’t steroids make you puffy all over? The rest of her looks un-puffy.

          • ecallaw1977

            I don’t know what’s typical, but it really was mostly in my mom’s face.

  • 3boysful

    So which came first:  Hollywood-ites giving each other awards right and left for 3 months, or our kids getting a trophy every time they play rec soccer?

    • Kate4queen

      positive reinforcement rules, right? or have we simply created a generation of narcissists? 🙂 

    • random_poster

      Oh, I love this comment so so much!


  • imperfectlaura

    Nicole is actually quite tall.  Amanda’s dress looks like the cuter sister of the dress Freida Pinto wore to the SAG’s.  My favorite might be Julianna.  I don’t love the length, but I love her posing.  She’s wearing the dress well.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      My favorite is Julianna, too.  Simple, but very striking.

  • filmcricket

    I like that Naomi Watts is around to show us what Nicole Kidman would have looked like had she not gone all crazy with the botox. And yes, Kidman is quite tall. I don’t know how tall Watts is (Liev Schrieber’s pretty tall too, so I think she just always looks smaller by comparison), but Kidman celebrated being able to wear heels again when she and Tom Cruise broke up. I wish Kidman would go back to the red hair, but they both look pretty great.

  • Synnae

    As Nicole Kidman is around my height – 6’1″ – I’d say Naomi (and the rest of Hollywood) are pretty much short arses. Love their dresses thou.

    • j_anson

      Seriously, how did Tom Cruise’s enormous ego EVER allow him to marry that woman?

      • teensmom99

        There’s a certain kind of short guy who feels like it shows he has a big dick if he dates a tall woman. Tom is one of those guys.

        • Yes, an extension of his manhood.  Just like the men who drive Hummers….

          • Pennymac

            And red corvettes…..

        • Tom Cruise’s penis is NOT something I want to think about. 🙂

      • Sobaika

        I think all of his wives were significantly taller than he was, especially in heels.

      • Katie Holmes is tall too. Not sure about Mimi Rogers, but maybe he has an Amazon fetish. (I get this too and I’m only 5’8″.)

  • Cannella3

    Nicole Kidman started acting in the era when actresses were allowed to be in the same size range as their male love interests; Naomi Watts came along a little later, by which time it had been decreed that all actresses should be teeny little waiflets. In Hollywood, women only come in one size at a time. Fin.

    • alyce1213

      I can’t agree, e.g., Jennifer Lawrence is 5’7-1/2″, Anne Hathaway is 5’8″, neither waiflets.
      Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts are contemporaries (a year apart) and probably started acting at about the same time (‘though Nicole’s U.S. career started earlier.)
      I think most actresses, and actors for that matter, are small (with large heads as it has been frequently pointed out) and it’s always been that way.
      And there have always been some talls. I just don’t think it has anything to do with the era.

  • alyce1213

    Kerry Washington’s Marchesa looks like a cheap black “fancy” slip, minus straps.
    Amanda looks lovely, and I think Anne Hathaway’s slightly high-waisted dress might have been improved with a belt. The colors are bright and lively, it’s a fun dress.
    For a blurry moment, I thought Julianna Margulies was Deeta von Teese, trying to redeem herself.

  • Violina23

    Between the hair and the way the bust fits her, I feel like Juliana Marguelies was modeling her dress after the Disney-animated version of “Pocahontas”

  • hughman

    It was nice of Penny Tration to lend Kerry Washington her dress from Drag Race. 

  • mjude

    i am not an orange person but i like amanda’s look.  nicole & naomi look great….hobbit camera trick…LOL

  • Roosevelt 85

    Is anybody else REALLY disappointed with Anne Hathaway’s dresses this award season. I would have expected Rachel Zoe to really work for amazing dresses considering she is almost certainty to get the Oscar. Gurl, this was not the year to experiment. 

    • Sobaika

      Only a tad bit. I’m hoping that Oscar night brings in the fashion crazy.

      Or maybe Rachel Zoe is doing right by her client and dressing to their style and preference, and not turning them into mini Rachel clones.

      • MilaXX

        I think Anne/Rachel will pull out the big guns for the Oscar’s

        • Roosevelt 85

          Exactly. As host, Rachel found really amazing gowns but this entire poledance for Les Miz has been a series of misses!

      • didn’t rachel zoe dress anne when she hosted the oscars or whatever? all those outfits were really good.

        • Sobaika

          She did. My favorite was the tux!

          • yes! that tux was great! 

            i can’t really see rachel talking anne into wearing that tom ford garbage bag dominatrix thing though…rachel usually plays it pretty safe, doesn’t she?
            or maybe she’s just off her game.

            for the record, this is the most thought i’ve ever given rachel zoe.

      • Only a tad, or only a bit. A “tad bit” isn’t a thing.

  • margaret meyers

    Botox can cause Giantism — it’s way, way down on the label.

  • Jessica! Pink lipstick, blue nails, cocker spaniel hair and THAT dress!??!!  WTF is wrong with you?

  • Amanda Seyfried needs to remember that color. That shade of orange is the perfect complement to her eye color. Juliana Margulies probably wins, though; it’s a standard dress, but she looks like a million bucks.

  • charlotte

    Are you sure that this is not the Morticia Addams Awards red carpet?

    • Yes, because the clothes would be WAY more fabulous. Morticia is awesome and deserves nothing less.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t like that cowl design on Amanda”s drewss. Love Kerry’s entire look. Agree Julia’s dress is too casual, but love her shoes. Everyone else did a decent job.

  • Zippypie

    That color is fabulous on Amanda – too bad the fabric looks so cheap.  Anne Hathaway looks sad.  What a boxy, ugly dress. 

    The classiest is Juliana Margulies by far.  You sure this wasn’t a wake?

  • Annabelle Archer

    Don’t tell me AnnE is not trying to incorporate pregnancy speculations into this exhaustive Oscar campaign! It’s been one midsection misdirection frock after another.

  • decormaven

    “Black is the color…” Honestly, sad to give Anne H snaps just because she chose a print! There’s something missing with that look as well- a necklace, perhaps? 

  • Fordzo

    Methinks Nicole is out without her shorty mcshort short husband (not knocking it, I love short men) and, therefore, gave herself permission to wear her high heels and not feel guilty.  Too bad we cannot see them.

    Also, Naomi is pocket sized.  I saw her on the street, and I was surprised at how very petite she is.  

  • kimmeister

    Anne Hathaway’s hair looks much like my husband’s after he has been using his “I’m a fancy schmancy cyclist” bicycle helmet for a few hours.

  • Nicole is a tall bitch, Naomi a lil one

  • marilyn

    Anne Hathaway’s dress shows how designers ruin dresses.  That print is not suitable for such a fitted dress.  Or the maker needed to cut the fabric so the print did not look chopped up.  If this dress was in a mall store, and had a modest price, I would not say a word.  But designers charge a maximum for these dresses, and those wearing them deserve the best.  This is a rookie sewing mistake, and bad things should be said about it.   

    That being said, the dress is very casual, and really a summer dress.  But this is LA, and the temperature is probably over 70 during the day, so they think it is summer again.

    • littlemac8

      Thanks, I always appreciate a little sewing tutorial!  Fascinating, really.

  • imspinningaround


  • I actually think Juliana is bringing some Dita von Teese realness here, with classic old Hollywood glamour.   Plus, she’s a friend of a friend and she’s LOVELY.  Kind and friendly and a professional.  

  • formerlyAnon

    Jennifer Garner looks like the co-captain of the volleyball team dressed for prom on a year that short dresses are in. But her parents are conservative and nixed the cleavage and the mini. And Jennifer is mostly o.k. with that because, wtf, prom? Her girls and the guys from the lacrosse team are gonna be mostly drinking in the parking lot anyway.

  • formerlyAnon

    Back on point, Ms. Hathaway’s hair offends. I like it short, but if this is how she’s going to deal with it as it grows out I am going to be very, very pained.

  • Jill Morino

    What is happening at the bottom of Jennifer Gardner’s dress?! Also, Anne is only adding fuel to the fire of pregnancy rumors with that dress. Classic maternity shape.

  • libraangel


  • subwaycars

    Love Nicole and Naomi’s dresses, and am happy to see Amanda in some freaking color, even if she looks a bit messy.

  • Judy_S

    Kidman and Watts look like some kind of before and after set. 

    •  Before and after of what variety? More like “Attack of the 50 foot Cheerleader”…Nicole is 5’11, dudes.

  • e jerry powell

    What time was this show?  I can’t tell, judging from what these ladies are wearing, if this is evening or afternoon.

  • quiltrx

    Juliana for the win here.  Very old-school glamour.

    And Nicole must have borrowed some of Gaga’s shoes.  I really didn’t realize Nicole was my height (5’11”), I guess because of her build.  But Naomi is 5’5″, and has at least slight heels on…that’s way more than 6 inches difference.

    • It’s also the camera lens and the angle. Note that Kidman’s head is twice the size of Watts’.

  • guest2visits

    Well, those are some pretty widow dresses.
    Amanda’s is very pretty from the waist up, meh below.
    In this pic Anne’s looks more like a beach towel, and she misplaced her Hawaiian lei.

  • I kinda love Amanda Seyfried’s dress. And Juliana Margulies looks SO glamorous. Love it. I also love the Aussie twins.

  • nannypoo

    If I ever see Juliana Margulies in person I will walk right up to her and slap that sugary simpering smirk right off her face. Well, no, I probably won’t, but you get the idea.

    •  Enh. I actually have walked past her in person, and she’s a friggen bobble head. The smirk is due to all the botox. It’s a bo-smirk.

  • Kimbolina

    That orange color is fantastic on Amanda but I’m really not a fan of the bodice.  It’s sort of giving me flashbacks to that dress from Project Runway a few seasons back when Joanna Coles said the model’s boobs looked like “two puppies in a sack”.

  • Kirsten Kirsten

    Kerry Washington’s dress looks like a muppet with crazy eyebrows!

  • Frank Lithium

    The Aussie ladies certainly brought their A-games.

  • Allison Woods

    Margulies FTW.

  • Call me Bee

    Julia M. FTW!  Perfection. 

  • L’Wren Scott is good for Our Nicole – similar build I guess. Jessica Alba is wearing that shade of lipstick I don’t like. Everything else is unremarkable.

  • DeebaCee

    Hannah Simone looks like Jessica Rabbit (in blue)

  • SewingSiren

    They look like they’re all getting a little bored with award shows. I hope they shake their collective funk for the Oscars. But of this group Kerry Washington shines.

  • I thought the EXACT thing when I saw the Kidman/Watts picture!

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Ever notice that those guys driving their mid-life crisis mobiles are always in the car alone?

  • Sara LaBatt

    Loving Julia’s shoes, but the dress feels not done somehow.  Too casual, yes, but also sort of uneven and like someone didn’t quite finish tailoring it.

    Hate Kerry Washington’s dress, with or without the lacy accents.  Especially the lace up top, it’s like chest hair, ew.
