Darlings, let’s all make one mad dash through a crowd of pretty people in bold gowns and a range of men’s formalwear, yes?

Also, let’s judge them.



Bebe Neuwirth in Dolce&Gabbana

This is lovely. We don’t quite know how she’s managing to work a pink that almost perfectly matches her own skin tone, but she’s pulling it off. Styling helps.



Busy Philipps in Ingie Paris

It’s just okay. We don’t love the textile (which looks like a little girl’s bed spread)  and it looks like the waist sits too high.



Claire Danes in Narciso Rodriguez

The Summer Chic styling helps set off what is a fairly generic gown. The color helps too. She could’ve used a touch more jewelry.

Nothing wrong with that.



Cynthia Erivo in Roberto Cavalli

This look is sending a message and that message is “I’M NOT AFRAID OF SHIT.”

We don’t think we can salute it from a taste perspective but the lady’s got it all over on the boldness front.



Daveed Diggs in Comme des Garçons

It’s bold and different. It’s not entirely to our tastes (although we like the idea behind it). But it’s well fitted for the most part and you can’t deny it suits him (pun unintended) very well.



Diane Lane

Koo-koo-ca-choo, Mrs. Robinson.

She went all in on the ’60s retro styles that suit her so well. It comes off a little costumey and the print is not at all flattering (nor are the shoes, for that matter), but we give her credit for going there.



Jake Gyllenhaal in Salvatore Ferragamo

He’s that rare breed of man who can rock a double-breasted tux.



Jenna Ushkowitz in J. Mendell

The blocking breaks her up too much. It’s an eye-catching design, but not a very flattering one.



Jessica Lange in J. Mendell

The bottom half has some interest, but that gather at the stomach is distracting as hell and the bodice looks cheap.



Jonathan Groff in Calvin Klein Collection

Very nice.



Justin Mikita and Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Also very nice.

And sweet.



Keri Russell in Monique Lhuillier

It’s great that she’ll be able to touch up her deodorant halfway through the night, but aside from that, we don’t see the point of those pit vents.

And it all looks a little “circus costume” to us.



Lin-Manuel Miranda

Can’t argue with that.



Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Zuhair Murad Couture

We’re more than a bit over any sheer, sparkly gown on the RC, but this is very pretty on her.



Neil Patrick Harris (in Z Zegna) and David Burtka (in YSL)

NPH’s jacket is a bit small and the hair situation isn’t the best choice for him (which assumes it’s a choice at all). David’s sparkly tux is fun.



Sophie Okonedo in Zac Posen

Gorgeous. It’s a little “1970s wallpaper” but apparently, that’s right in her wheelhouse.
