Y’know, we went back and forth on whether or not to even cover this event. On the one hand, it’s an orgy of celebrities in high fashion. On the other hand, they all look pretty good and that’s boring. Ultimately, we decided to put the post together and just figure out something later. Still. It nagged at us all day.
“What will we say?” we asked ourselves. “It’s nothing but pretty ladies in pretty gowns, all the way down. There’s no entertainment value in that.”
Which isn’t to say everyone looks absolutely dead-perfect and we wouldn’t have quibbles if we looked hard enough.
And you can always bet that someone’s going to wear something that pushes our particular idiosyncratic taste buttons, like over-matchiness or colorless ensembles.
But it seemed to us that no matter how much we tried to come up with constructive criticisms or to point out things we would have done differently, it just came off nitpicky.
Because whatever else you might say about these ladies as a group, it’s hard to deny that they all brought their A game to this event.
Which is where our dilemma comes in. We feel it’s our duty to let all of our readers see as many celebrities in expensive borrowed outfits as God and the First Amendment will allow. But what is there to say about pretty ladies in pretty gowns except “Here’s some pretty ladies in pretty gowns?”
It’s a conundrum, all right.
