Darlings, don’t take this rundown as a suggestion that none of these outfits rated a second glance. On the contrary, we took a look at who was left on this red carpet that we hadn’t gotten to yet and realized that, as a group, they made for a somewhat interesting set of style choices. So let’s do a mass judging, yes?

Yes!

Shall we all say it together, darlings? That thing T & Lo seem to say most often in their critiques? All together:

“You had us until we got to the shoes, dear.”

Everything above the ankles is kind of cute and unexpected, coming from her. We’d never have pegged her as someone who’d take her style cues from Liza Minnelli and manage to pull the look off. But that footwear is tragique.

She looks cute. It’s very standard in a lot of ways, from the naked shoe to the black-backed floral to the bold yellow, but there’s nothinghere for us to argue against except perhaps the stiffness of the skirt.

It’s not setting our world on fire or anything, but it manages to give her all the coverage she wants without making her look frumpy, like a lot of her style choices do. Like Lauren’s look, it’s standard, but it works well for her. Having said that, we’d have suggested a much different pencil skirt than that hard-to-pull-off thing. And the nude pumps do nothing to complete the look.

Hey, if some people want to live in 1987, who are we to judge them?

But we do judge those shorts. Keep the Paula Abdul video top, but find something a little more flattering for the bottom.

Mmm. It’s okay. It obviously doesn’t photograph all that well against that backdrop, but that’s not her fault. It looks a bit stiff and uncomfortable, though. And it’s not the freshest look in the world. If someone old enough to be your mother would look great in your outfit, it’s a sign that you might want to make some adjustments.
