SAG Awards 2013 Red Carpet – Part 1

Posted on January 28, 2013

Like life, the SAG Awards red carpet is a funny thing, darlings. All the all-eyes-on-me stars of the moment have already gone through a succession of high-profile frockery to get to this point during awards season. And they still have some major prom-night level events down the line. Which leaves the choices for attire for this event somewhat on the safe and boring side because they’ve used most of the good dresses up and are hoarding the remaining good dresses for upcoming events.

We think each of the awards shows vying for attention during this season should have a “theme” red carpet – like a prom theme – and that way, everyone has to be on their A game for each appearance. Like, the BAFTAs would be “High Tea.” The People’s Choice could be … we don’t know…”Rock and Roll Paradise” or something. The Golden Globes: “Samba!” And then finally, the Oscars, which could go for “Winter Wonderland” or go the more honest, pep rally route and just have a huge banner that reads “WE’RE AWESOME!”

In other words, this red carpet would’ve been SO much more interesting if SAG had decided on an “Enchantment Under the Sea” theme or something. People would’ve tried harder and all the mermaid dresses would’ve made more sense.

 

Amanda Seyfried in Zac Posen

 S’alright. We’re pretty sure she was stoned out of her mind when she was talking to the hyperactive Giulana Rancic, but then, who wouldn’t be? We thought the pendant was an odd choice, though.

 

 

Amber Riley in Christian Siriano

 Do not like this at all. It’s unflattering and matronly.

 

 

Anne Hathaway in Giambattista Valli

 This just screams “I ran out of dresses to wear!”

 

Claire Danes in Givenchy

 Points for an interesting dress, but the skirt looks too stiff and we don’t love the shape of the upper half. Her lip color looks like she drank a cup of hot chocolate without using her hands.

 

 

Freida Pinto in Roland Mouret

 Enh. Don’t love the neckline. She’s been playing it WAY too safe lately.

 

Heather Morris in Gomez-Gracia

 Points for color and visual interest – and for not being a strapless gown – but it’s just okay.

 

 

Jennifer Garner in Oscar de la Renta

Like the hair and makeup. We like the idea of the dress, but we thought it was a bit tight on her and could’ve used funkier jewelry and accessories to set it off better.

 

 

Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior Couture

Yawn.

 

 

Jennifer Westfeldt in Blumarine

 Nightgown.

 

 

Jordin Sparks in Nicole Miller

 Project Runway.

 

 

Julia Stiles in Amen Couture

 Not bad. Interesting color. The bustline’s a bit wide on her.

 

 

Julie Bowen in Johanna Johnson

 Credit for wearing something off the beaten path. Dig those Ziggy Stardust shoulders.

 

 

Katrina Bowden in Badgley Mischka

 Yawn 2.

 

Kelly Osbourne in Jenny Packham

This might be our favorite Kelly O outfit in quite some time. Love the bodice.

 

Naomi Watts in Marchesa

 YAWN.

 

 

Nina Dobrev in Elie Saab

Pretty. Not sure what’s going on there, but it looks a bit like a t-shirt shoved awkwardly into a skirt. We just want to straighten things out.

 

 

Rose Byrne in Valentino

 K Mart curtains.

  • Sobaika

    I’m really liking Claire Danes’ lipcolor – so Angela Chase! so 90s! – but that dress is not okay.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ Dot

      Hah! That lip color is indeed straight outta the 90s .. definitely the sort of color Rayanne would have loaned Angela.

      • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

        They make her lips look used, but in a good way, LOL!

    • Fyolette

      that’s what I thought too, the second I saw her – ‘she’s channeling Angela aww’

    • http://twitter.com/emilyf007 emily

       Me too!

    • ashtangajunkie

      The low-key (or lack of) eye makeup too. She could show up in nothing but rags for the rest of her life and I would still love her for having been Angela Chase. 

    • SaoirseLee

      Her hair colour is wildly unflattering though, just the worst shade of blonde for someone as pale as her.

  • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

    Why do all the dresses fit so badly? Is this really so far down the list of important events that everyone’s just phoning it in?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/QK3MTAHUVJCMI7DANY6WFCAIUM n a

      Yah, they are clearly saving up for oscars!!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WSJSS4K7IRV6LAGEPBPWFGPT7I Laurie

       Agree.  I thought Kelly O looked great until I noticed her ripply hips!

  • Fordzo

    Again, Rose looks like her puppy just died.  

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I thought that Rose’s dress looked like a particularly unflattering bridesmaid number, with the batwing sleeves.

  • Jecca2244

    Jennifer W always does that weird neckline. and wow, power of you guys, I loved Nina’s dress until you gave that visual and now I can’t unsee it. She’s also too thin and I realize some people are just thin by nature, but…I want beauty brands to stop making Claire Danes’ lip color from happening. There are very few people who can execute it and on pale skin it looks deathly. and if you do that color it needs to be lush and creamy and not matte.

  • jorinde

    Kelly looks stunning.

    • Sobaika

      I would agree, except her makeup is a bit garish. It doesn’t work with her (wacky grandma) haircolor.

    • fursa_saida

      I want that dress right now. RIGHT. NOW. I will lounge in it and eat string cheese, because I have no other plans for this evening, but GIVE DRESS NOW.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WSJSS4K7IRV6LAGEPBPWFGPT7I Laurie

       Would be perfect if not for the rippled side seams of the dress – or are her hips meant to be decorated with spikes?!

  • FrayedMachine

    Oh god. Byrne looks ssooooooo unhappy in that picture. SHE looks pissed that someone managed to take a picture of her wearing that. Also whoever dressed Amber Riley for this should be flogged. That’s not a dress to have -anyone- wear. At all. Ever. And I’m kind of in love with Seyfriend’s dress but most of that is because it seems like she’s been dressed and done up in the dark as of late so this is kind of a personal best for her in a really. really. really long time. I think my favorite out of this bunch of Kelly Osbourne. She looks absolutely gorgeous and I am really in love with that dress.

  • crash1212

    Holy crap. That Rose Byrne get-up made me physically push away from my screen with way raised eyebrows. SO unflattering – horrible fabric, horrible design, horribly accessorized and horrible hair. Of course, maybe that’s what she was going for.

  • shirab

    I just saw Bridesmaids last night on Netflix and didn’t realize that that Rose Byrne was this Rose Byrne. In the movie she shows a wide range of facial expressions, but on the red carpet she always looks melancholy.

  • Alyssa

    My thoughts:
    Amanda looked much better than she has recently! I liked the pendant, although I can see why others didn’t.
    Julie’s dress stands out for being so different, and I like it a lot.
    Kelly looked wonderful! Best dressed in this batch for me.
    Naomi’s would have been much better in a bolder color that didn’t wash her out so much.
    Nina’s dress really highlighted her tiny waist!

  • Sobaika

    Personal best for Julie Bowen! It’s eye-catching, different, seasonally appropriate, leather, and has snazzy shoulder detailing.

    Jennifer Garner gets points for trying.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=521523033 Erin Schubert Needham

      I just hope she didn’t sweat.  I know celebrities don’t sweat, so she’s probably fine.  I just can’t imagine me wearing a leather dress – ick!

    • In_Stitches

       Agree 100%-she’s made so many missteps-this is the first time she’s worn something flattering, looks comfortable in it and didn’t F up the whole thing with some cracked out hair.

    • SassieCassy

      yeah julie bowen is my best dressed of the bunch tbqh

    • megohd

      Yes! my thoughts exactly. Julie Bowen always looks so uncomfortable in her own skin, like she’s trying too hard.  Here she wore something unconventional and looked so at home! I love  it.

  • Kappyapp

    Jennifer Lawrence’s dress made me feel claustrophobic because it looks like it’s binding her legs and she’d have trouble walking. I don’t know if that’s the case but when I look at it, I feel the need to stretch my legs out. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ginny-Ellsworth/534496198 Ginny Ellsworth

      I give her credit for showing up with walking pneumonia. If it had been me, I would have been styling my Snuggie with a tissue box as my accessory. 

    • filmcricket

      She did have trouble walking, she nearly face-planted on her way up to the podium. (Also, she apparently has walking pneumonia, making it even more difficult.) That dress looked like it was coming apart at the seams – couldn’t tell if it was deliberate or not. 

      • tereliz

        The underskirt is attached to the overskirt with what looks like a sheer panel, or at least, that’s how it looked to me when she tried to lift her skirt to mount the stage but only grabbed the top skirt. Thank goodness she didn’t trip going up the stairs!

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/KBNJ6GJTXYEE6BON3WGK6KEGT4 Elizabeth

        Yes … this dress was an epic fail in terms of practicality. She couldn’t walk in it, so she was trying to pull the dress up. However, due to the paneling, she only pulled up the top panel and ended up exposing her thighs several times. At first I thought she stepped on the hem and ripped the dress, but a second look at the footage showed what was going on. Poor thing. It must be nerve wracking to walk through those tables and up to that stage, and then your damn dress makes you look foolish. Blame Zoe … she styled Jennifer for this event. Since Jenn has been winning non-stop, you’d think they would practice walking and going up stairs.

  • Sobaika

    I love Freida Pinto for the color choice alone, but hair is awful awful awful. Neckline isn’t very flattering either.

    • kimmeister

      It’s so very Hilary Clinton circa 1993.

    • SassieCassy

      her and nina seem to be wearing brighter colors

      its a nice departure from the sea of navy blue

      when did navy blue become so big?

  • Funkykatt

    I guess ‘Project Runway’ is the ultimate insult these days. Yep.

    • Aly Light

      I thought it was referring to the fact that Project Runway contestants all seem to have an unnatural love of that particular shade of blue.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WSJSS4K7IRV6LAGEPBPWFGPT7I Laurie

         Good point. I thought it was referring to the slightly asymmetric draped bodice. (Always makes me wonder if it’s an artistic twist or just poor execution?!)

  • http://twitter.com/Soozables Susan Lloyd

    Snaps up to Kelly O. for serving up Lady Mary Crawley realness.  LOVE her dress. 

  • Roosevelt 85

    Any info on what happened to J. Lawrence’s dress? It LOOKED like it ripped but then seemed to be okay while on stage. I didn’t know that Rachel Zoe was her stylist.

    • http://twitter.com/Goldielox73 Goldie

      I was going to ask if TLo has a picture of the runway version.  I read somewhere that it actually has lace panels and she’d had some kind of lining arranged to cover them.  They said the apparent rip was the lining slipping or something.

    • tereliz

      I think she just grabbed the top skirt and not the bottom one, which is not a full skirt. The top part where it attached to the dress looks like tulle/gauze/netting/whatever. I guess it makes the top skirt lay flat and doesn’t weigh as much? Plus they only had like two weeks to get the bugs out, amirite? 

  • Funkykatt

    Heather Morris’s dress was my bedspread back in ’68. I didn’t like it then either.

  • Roosevelt 85

  • Veronica1022

    Maybe the ladystars all knew what was happening on Downtown Abby last night and figured that- DA was all anyone would discuss, even if one of them showed up dressed in the Wendy Pepper Candy Dress.

  • http://profiles.google.com/adj.blair Adriana Blair

    I think Katrina Bowden’s dress is gorgeous.

    • meebs

       I think so too, it’s my favorite here.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JSGAZPEESHQT47ATH55GNOHHBY Erin

    Are Julie Bowen’s nipples showing through leather?!  It *was* cold on the red carpet!  Also, Rose Byrne looks like she wants to throttle her stylist.

    • kimmeister

      I think it’s just an unfortunately placed dart.

    • julesj

      Yeah, I was wondering about Bowen’s nipples…WT heck, is it that cold or is the nipple ring showing through. Not attractive, whatever it is. 

  • Jepham

    Rose Byrne looks like she’s about to break into tears and with good reason. That is a horrible mess of a dress. I love some of the colors of these dresses but not many of the designs. I’m surprised that I like Kelly Osborne’s dress the best in this line up.  

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=535548244 Kim Baker Vidas Davey-Irvin

      she ALWAYS looks that way these days.  her eyes look as if they have seen nothing but tragedy.  of course, in this case, all that would have taken was a mirror. 

  • Annabelle Archer

    Rose looks like she lost a bet.

    Kelly O was the best dressed of this group, that’s for damn sure.

    • kimmeister

      I think Rose fought a sea anemone, and lost.

  • http://twitter.com/stellaphone Stella Zawistowski

    Rose Byrne’s face says it all.

    I actually really dig Heather Morris’s look. I’m kind of loving the bright turquoise on the sheer black.

    • 3boysful

       Heather coulda been a contenda if she’d had better hair and makeup.  The dress overpowered both.

      • RebeccaKW

        I agree.  I really liked her dress, but the hair was boring and not very flattering for her, and the makeup was pretty non-existent (except for the terrible lip color). 

    • filmcricket

      I like that she went with something that kept the shape simple, since the fabric was so eye-catching. She’s had a tendency to do both in the past, which has rarely worked out for her.

  • karenbttc

    Rose looks like K-Mart curtains, agreed… but what is up with her Stepford expression?

    • Candigirl1968

      She usually looks miserable.  

  • decormaven

    Dying here! “K Mart curtains” indeed! Strange red carpet when Kelly O is beating out the RC strutters. And for Pete’s sake, someone please get a decent fitter to Jennifer Gardner, stat. That look would have been elevated 1,000% if her bosom was correctly supported. 

  • FancyPhilly

    I sense some fatigue on your part guys…. this post seemed overly bitchy and harsh.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=509434130 Michelle Le

      T & Lo still put more effort in than most of these celebs

    • ecallaw1977

       Hmmm, it mostly consisted of, “Yawn.”  That doesn’t seem all that bitchy or harsh to me, I think they went easy on these ladies!

  • afabulous50

    Giuliana went on and on and on about these dresses last night…I don’t see it.  Even JLaw and Cozette were yawns for me too.  I had to mute E! in order to get through the coverage…Giuliana has GOT TO GO!

    • Sobaika

      E! coverage was terrible last night. I was never a Seacrest fan but apparently he’s the only thing holding them together. Giuliana is a hot mess who thinks she’s way more interesting than she actually is. I liked Ross though, his “OMIGOSH! CELEBS!” thing is probably what I’d be doing on the red carpet too.

      • SassieCassy

        she was so damn annoying esp. with that dubstep stuff and singing with hugh jackman

      • MilaXX

        Ross’s OHMYGOSH! Celebs act wore thin long ago. He bugs just as much as Guiliana.

    • carolclark12

      Thank you for saying this.  I was looking for an appropriate place to put my disgust/amusement with her “performance” last night … asking everyone how to “do dubstep.”  But the most cringeworthy moment was when she showed someone (I was so horrified by her, I forgot who she was talking to) how to “make it rain.”  I didn’t think it was possible to sink lower than that, but she did by telling her next several guests, “I had to show ____ [whoever] how to make it rain.  You know how to make it rain, don’t you?”  I am embarrassed even while typing this.

    • MilaXX

      She was especially awful last night. At one point I was literally yelling, ” Shut up!” at the tv. 

  • http://twitter.com/thehilariest The Hilariest

    I actually really like Amanda’s choice of the pendant. It certainly was not predictable, and brought more interest to the dress. Some of the other shots of Nina’s dress I’ve seen (from a different angle) were just beautiful. Very different, very flattering.

  • In_Stitches

    Rose Bryne looks like the youngest sister wife of a polygamist family who doesn’t get to go to Applebees on family-date night because she forgot to iron her husband’s socks.  

    • Jepham

       This reply has me in stitches!

    Rose Byrne wins the ‘best facial expression to fit a dress’ award…”wtf am I wearing”…lips

  • Snailstsichr

    I cannot stand Anne Hathaway’s dress. The first words out of my mouth were, “I hate that dress so much I hope Sally field gets her Oscar.” I don’t know what came over me to hate a dress that much, but the feeling did not getting any better for having slept on it.

  • http://twitter.com/wonderdivaEtsy wonderdivaEtsy

    Jennifer Westfield’s dress does very minimizing things to her bustline, bringing to mind the term “booblets.”  But it also looks like she had breast implants put on top of her cheekbones. She also looks amazingly like (former First Lady) Laura Bush in a blonde wig.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WSJSS4K7IRV6LAGEPBPWFGPT7I Laurie

       I think her looks are headed along a path toward Jennifer Coolidge.  Oddly enough, I sometimes get the two confused.

      • ecallaw1977

         Very accurate, I never thought about how much they look alike!

  • f_yeah_marie

    I’ve been waiting for this post all day…sorry if it sounds stalkerish but I live for T Lo’s red carpet (and in general) commentary

  • sk8tfan

    Rose Byrne clearly lost a bet with her stylist and was forced to wear this as a result.

  • mjude

    HA!  i love these kinda posts!

  • Lilithcat

    I love the idea of theme red carpets.  Absolutely brilliant.

    I do like Julie Bowen’s (whoever the heck she is!) best of this lot.  If you’d ever said to me “leather evening gown with sparkly shoulders”, I’d have likely had you committed.  But it really works!

  • teensmom99

     This just screams “I ran out of dresses to wear!”= one of all time best TLo lines.As to Rose Byrne–I know that at the Globes re Lucy Liu you said that whenever someone wears flowers, the comments shouldn’t default to curtains or upholstery–especially in this case when Byrne’s dress is actually Kmart SHOWER curtains.

  • RocknRollmom

    The world has turned upside down when the best out of the bunch by a long shot is Kelly Osborne!  Love that dress.  Like Heather Morris’s dress for reasons stated.  I think Jennifer Lawrence looks beautiful in the blue.  Amanda Seyfriend’s choices continue to irritate me.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Note to starlets:  Just because it says “Valentino” does not make you obligated to wear it. 

  • formerlyAnon

     Kelly Osborne was manna in the desert, here. Mildly interesting and it looked good on her.

    Anne Hathaway’s was AWFUL, and even if it hadn’t been, the “feel” of the dress and of her hair were so far apart that she still wouldn’t have looked good.

    Where has Rose Byrne’s Valentino appeared on this site recently? (because I haven’t looked at any other fashion stuff in the last month so it had to be here.) Maybe just in a runway show? I remember not liking it much there, either.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Maya-KC/537771651 Maya KC

    Oh Rose Byrne, no. Don’t do that. The dress or the makeup.

  • WhiteOprah

    Amanda Seyfried did give the weirdest interview with Giuliana- she was all “I hope we don’t win”.  Anne Hathaway better not get wind of that- there may be some bitch-slapping going on later.  

  • Leonardo Alves

    I like the idea of Rose Byrne’s dress…. The fabric is just really unfortunate!

  • Candigirl1968

    99% of the time, the short skirt, long flaps dress fails spectacularly, and Anne’s is not the exception to the rule.

  • Call me Bee

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but in this group–Kelly Osbourne for the win!!  She looks gorgeous it that dress. 
    Julie Bowen is a close second–thought that leather dress was cute and interesting.  

  • http://www.facebook.com/xerapis David Louis Quick

    Amber Riley in Christian Siriano – really just reminded me of that horrible prom dress episode where the fierce princess almost got auf’d.

  • TheDivineMissAnn

    Either that’s a fabric dart on Julie Bowen’s bodice or she’s just happy to see us.

  • tereliz

    LOVE Julie B’s dress, and this is the first time I’ve thought Kelly’s lavender hair actually looked good with an outfit. I guess I like the edgier looks more than the froo-froo-frippery, but there was something cool about Amanda’s mermaid dress. 
    Maybe it was how the pendant elongated her proportions, maybe it was the thickness of the fabric, maybe it was just that her dress FIT! But I thought she looked good. I really REALLY want to like Claire’s Givenchy, but it’s the hair, not the lippy, bringing that one down for me. That dress calls for sleek hair, and it’s maybe a little too eighties looking with the nineties lippy, I guess. 

  • greyhoundgirl

    Why does everyone want to walk on their dress?

    Naomi Watts may have gotten a ‘YAWN’ but she looks absolutely radiant. Also, my favorite look of the night definitely went to Nina Dobrev. Julie Bown is a close 2nd.

    I may not love the shape of Freida Pinto’s, but that color is GORGEOUS on her.

  • meebs

    Did anyone else see JLaw’s dress cutting itself in half when she went up to the stage?

  • alyce1213

    Anne Hathaway’s getup gave me unpleasant flashbacks to Demi Moore 1989.
    Amber Riley:  Hideous and cheap-loooking, like a bad witchy dress.  I’m so over Christian Siriano, ‘though to be honest, except for a very few good designs, I never thought he was ALL that.  Highly overrated — more snot than substance.  There, I said it.  I haven’t seen anything of his in a while that I even like.

  • MilaXX

    Lots of mostly meh gowns.
    Hated that necklace Amanda Seifreid wore.I like that Christian will dress a lady who is not a size 2, but his voluminous designs are not what curvy gals like Amber need.I thought Jennifer Lawrence looked really pretty, except the hair.Niana Dobrev looked pretty.
    I think Rose Byrne’s dress could have worked if the hair wasn’t so sister wife-y.

    • GenieinTX

       Christian S cannot dress a plus size girl.  Remember on PR when everything he designed was skinny pants?  I just don’t think he understands how curves work

  • jw_ny

    Anne disappoints me here.

    Love Katrina, Kelly, Claire, and Heather’s  gowns.

    Laughed at Amanda’s whole look…started singing that ‘under the sea’ song (which I don’t know any of the words to except those and it’s now driving me nutty!)

    I yawned at Jennifer Garner….think that dress is standard, her hair is a mess, and her makeup is clownish. 

  • procrastinatrice

    I actually love Amanda’s necklace, and for some reason, she is my idea of what a mermaid would look like, so to me she is the rare girl that can actually rock a blue mermaid dress. It’s probably that gorgeous hair…

  • Synnamin

    Wow. that’s an insane amount of boring/fug on the red carpet. Kelly O is the only one who really stands out in a good way

  • Tapetum

    The dress itself might be a yawn, but my god, Jennifer Lawrence should always wear that color. It sets off her complexion and eyes to absolute perfection.

  • tessasouthworth

    Is that Blake Lively standing behind Amber Riley? Whoever it is, she looks like her poor feet have been subjected to foot binding with that platform sole peeking out from her hem. She really could take a lesson from La Bingbing last week on how to get a hem on a column-skirted gown perfectly right. And what’s with the one ribbon curl drooping over her left shoulder?

    I’m guessing that Seyfried is a bit too twee for us to get obnoxious and call that a lavaliere, right?  Because it does go almost all the way down to her waist…

  • Trisha26

    Jordin wins in this bunch for me – gorgeous color and she looks lovely. Also like Julie Bowen’s gown but I’d say that’s more of a Grammy dress.

    What was up with JLaw’s dress. It was in two parts? yes? Jen G. and Heather M. were the best of this bunch.

  • Zippypie

    I can’t believe Kelly O. is the standout given her lavendar granny hair, but the bodice is beautiful on that dress, as well as the fit.  The rest……zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz  wake me up before you go-go.

    What was going on with Jennifer Lawrence’s gown when she got up to accept her award? It looked like the bottom skirt was fastened to the rest of the dress with nude illusion. Very weird and a cheap thing to do for DIOR COUTURE, for god’s sake.

    Anne Hathaway-this old thing?  It’s good enough for SAG. 
    Jennifer Westfeldt-bless her, she’s always got that “I get to go home with Jon Hamm” grin on her face.

    Really, really like Kelly Osborne in that dress. So her and yet so appropriate. Her hairstyle looks fabulous. Kudos!

  • allcapsERINN

    That doesn’t even look like Jennifer Garner. Has she done something to her face? :( :(

  • Allison Woods

    Werk for Kelly o.

  • Janet B

    Surprisingly Julie Bowen’s leather dress is my favorite and Kelly Osbourne looks fantastic.

  • Anniebet

    Jennifer Lawrence’s blue is simple, elegant, and I didn’t see the TV show so have no visions of the skirt separating from the top to ruin the impression, so I love the look. 

    Kelly Osbourne has an incredible ability to not look 5’2″. Love her style. 

    Who kidnapped Jennifer Garner and put a wax figurine on the Red Carpet? They got her face all wrong too.

    Kelly O always makes me think of the actress Norma Shearer — also a small woman with short limbs.  If she gets the right look, her proportions have a lot of charm.  She got the right look here, one of my favorites of the night. She looks so much more relaxed than usual.

    A LOT of safe and boring gowns…along woth just as boring styling! Dior Couture…my ass! Couture should be spectacular and creative….not a empty navy toothpaste tube!

    • mhleta

      And the bottom half of the skirt shouldn’t just come OFF when a lady is taking the stage! Was I the only one who saw that happen??

  • quiltrx

    I’ve got to give Kelly Osborne the win here!  It looks like something I would pick out if I wanted to stand out on the RC.  Second place to Julia Styles–it’s really pretty and a little different.

    Heather’s dress benefits tremendously by comparison.  I like the color, the shape, and the fact that it doesn’t look like every other damn dress on the red carpet.

    seyfried finally looks right. if she’d put the hair up off the neck, it would have elevated the whole thing. the tiers make her seem taller, the fit suggests a figure… it makes her more than a face and head of hair.

  • pdquick

    Was it cold in there, or was it just Julie Bowen?

  • shelley514

    Amanda Seyfried’s Zac Posen gown is gorgeous and the best of the bunch here.  Second place goes to Kelly Osborne, bravo to her!!! Julia Styles gets a mention; love the color and the detail on that gown, but the bust line is way too wide as TLO pointed out.  Worst of the bunch – FRIEDA PINTO – complete fail.  She is too gorgeous to be wearing these hideous dresses we’ve been seeing her in lately. Fi-yah your stylist girl!!!  Rose Byrne is also a disaster and looks mean.

  • sarahmichelef

    The dart on Julie Bowen’s bustline makes it look like her nipple is on the attack. Not OK.

    TLo, almost spewed my coffee when I scrolled down to Rose Byrne’s “K-Mart Curtains” assessment. Thank you!!!
    Kelly – I loved EVerything about her look, and am Jones-ing for that bag/clutch.
    Jennifer Law. – I also loved everything about her look.  I think the magazine spreads have helped her find her beauty – and of course she is the only one I turn UP the volume to hear what she has to say.  So real.

    I laughed when I saw Rose Byne’s.  I wore a Gunny Sax dress kind of like this for a piano recital in 1978

  • selianth

    What happened to Julia Stiles’ face? Her makeup is AWFUL.

  • nosniveling

    love the Gomez-Garcia dress.  She can be the coral the mermaids are floating over.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    I love the color of Julia Stiles’ dress.  Love it.  
    But Rose Byrne.  Oh no.  I think she has somehow made her stylist angry and this was the result.  This is something straight out of 1976.  She looks like she’s going to use those shoulder wings to flap straight up and fly all around the event.  UGH.  

  • guest2visits

    Several of these looked so much better on the RC, and in ‘reals’.  Anne H’s for one is very strange in stills, but works in RL.
    Same with Rose B, Nina D.  I saw alot of very pretty looks too; I generally oohd and ahhd.

    Kelly O. for the win? I never thought I would say that. Imagine J-Garn in black jet beads to offset all that gold. I’d love it the stars went a little Antebellum and Lincoln-esque for the Oscars. Hair was terrible for ladies then, but jewelry was awesome.

  • StPauliGrrl

    Uhhh, naomi watts looks like she has an bullseye, albeit a hippy bullseye, on her kitty.

  • libraangel

    Thank You. T&L! I was thinking it was just me, because mermaids+black+ boring, boring, boring! Can’t say much of the above but pink is a nice color for Frieda ( but that’s all – dress is a mess; did you see the back with the black tse-tse flies tulle or whatever the hell its was! Julie watch your nips, and I can’t believe that I would EVER write that Kelly O. was the best?!

  • AutumnInNY

    Harsh make-up or lighting on Anne Hathaway, almost looks like a mask. And a big yawn is right on most of these dresses.
