The NBC Upfronts Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on May 17, 2017

To our surprise, this season’s upfronts have become some sort of major red carpet thing all of a sudden. You won’t hear us complaining.

Well. Actually, you will hear us complaining, but mostly about their questionable style choices.

 

America Ferrera in Saloni

Cute dress, but she could’ve used a fresher footwear choice.

 

 

Anne Heche

Still on that “Ugly dress and clunky shoes” world tour, we see.

 

 

Ben Feldman

Really cute, and an example of the kind of fresh menswear styling we’d rather see much more of on the red carpet, in place of the default setting of banker’s suit.

 

Derek Hough

Ditto.

Although both of them have slight fit issues.

 

Jaimie Alexander in Cushnie et Ocs

Feels a little formal and more than a little off-season.

 

 

Jennifer Beals in Cedric Charlier

LOVE. Sure, the ruffles are overdone and the accessories are tending toward “Nana,” but it’s such a fun, bright, different kind of red carpet look.

 

 

Jessica Biel in Roland Mouret

Yawn.

 

 

Kristen Bell in Victoria Beckham

The “fucked-up dress” trend is on the rise. You heard it here first.

The pop of color shoes don’t work. They’re jarring.

 

 

Matt Lander

Cute guy in an oversized accountant’s suit.

 

 

Megyn Kelly

You’re too white for that color, lady. And your belt’s kind of tacky.

 

 

Mike Vogel

Cute guy in a lawyer’s suit.

 

 

Mindy Kaling

Why are so many of these stars dressing like they’re attending a business seminar? Not that we can fault their professionalism. And we can certainly understand why they wouldn’t want to overdress for an event like this.

This is fine. Really.

 

Nicole Richie in Josie Natori (Top) and Galvan London (Skirt)

We dig her whole “effortless soignée” thing, but this could’ve used just a bit more effort.

 

 

Retta

See, now that’s what we mean. Miss Retta brought a little theatricality to the proceedings. She looks like a stern, but fabulous judge.

 

 

Susan Kelechi Watson

That’s probably a bit much.

 

 

Taylor Kinney

Almost. Switch out the blue shirt for another color and the non-descript shoes for a pair that pops.
