Amanda Peet, Andie MacDowell, Jodie Foster, Laura Dern, Minnie Driver, and Selma Blair attend the 2016 Hammer Museum Gala in the Garden honoring Laurie Anderson and Todd Haynes sponsored by Bottega Veneta in Westwood, California.
We’ve been doling out judgment on this event in dribs and drabs all week, but it’s time to wrap things up in one big judgmental extravaganza. Let’s do this thing, kittens.
Hmm. We’re off to a bad start, because this is cute and venue-appropriate. We have no criticisms.
Oh, good. Something ugly.
Fine, that was harsh. But the bodice and the skirt don’t look like they belong in the same dress. And to be honest, the bottom half looks cheaper than the top.

That’s the best “black sheer overlay” dress we’ve seen in ages. It’s sharp and doesn’t overwhelm, even with the ruffled cap sleeves. You’d think they wouldn’t work at all, but they do.
A little too poolside in tone, but she does look fabulous, we have to say. Looks like she wasn’t going to be bullied into colorlessness, like so many of the others apparently were.
