Kittens, we’re kind of on the porch of awards season, right now; watching the stars with the buzz working their way through some low-level style obligations and polishing their acceptance speeches. Let’s judge them.
Alia Shawkat in Vintage Halston
This is a kind of fun and unexpected dress that absolutely works well with her looks. Loving the necklace action. Not loving the boot action at all.
Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli Couture
Against our better judgment, we’re gonna give her this one. We don’t love the style and we think it reads way too springtime for this event, but it’s a pretty look that suits her.
Armie Hammer in Ralph Lauren
He’s Armie. He’s always fine. Even on a night when he flounces off twitter in a huff.
Carey Mulligan in Christian Dior Couture
We’d normally call Miss Carey in an all-gray gown a recipe for disaster – or worse, mediocrity. But this is surprisingly rich and pretty.
Garrett Hedlund in Dolce&Gabbana
An admirable attempt, but the fit is off, the hair’s a mess and the tie and shirt don’t go with the suit.
Greta Gerwig in Gucci
We kind of hate it, but it’s so right for her that we begrudgingly respect it.
He’s keeping himself clean. No, really. The look is polished, grown-up and professional. The boy can taste it.
We tend to think contrasting dress pants with blazers looks more than a little prep school – especially in colors like these. But he’s just right for working these suave, mid-Century styles. The velvet looks amazing on him.
Rachel Weisz in Saint Laurent
Serving up ’80s office holiday party realness. We’re kinda loving it, actually.
Robert Pattinson in Dior Homme
The facial hair is terrible, but the rest works just fine.
Timothée Chalamet in Berluti
We don’t normally love velvet suits worn this way, but it’s kind of his thing and it feels modern and sophisticated when he does it. You may continue, Timothée.
A little too “shopgirl circa 1930” for us. That’s normally a style that would delight us, but she’s not well-suited for it.
