We’re shoving this dark coven of righteous feminism out the door somewhat unjudiciously, we’re afraid. We’ve still got after-parties to get to, after all. And don’t even get us started on all the other celebrity partying and backpatting events that went on over the weekend. Kittens, it could make a couple of bitchy bloggers such as we weep, if we didn’t love it all so much.
Let’s continue to judge, shall we?
Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton
Best Louis Vuitton she’s snagged in ages. We said in an interview beforehand that the dress blackout might fail if everyone showed up in modest prairie dresses. But for the most part, the celeb ladies stuck to their glam roots and offered up movie star realness. Even in this instance, it’s not a dress that speaks of modesty or shame, which is what we feared if people showed up in this style. It looks chic and a bit serious, like her.
Ann Dowd in Sachin & Babi
Lovely. They did right by her and you can tell she’s pleased.
Chrissy Metz in Sachin & Babi
Probably the very best thing we’ve seen her wear.
Dakota Johnson in Gucci
Stunning. Honestly, one of the best looks of the night. Definitely the best thing she’s ever worn.
Halle Berry in Zuhair Murad
You can always count on Miss Halle to say “Newp” to the dress code. We’ve lost count of how many dresses she’s worn when everyone else was in a gown. This is fine, but kind of dull.
Isabelle Huppert in Chloé
She tends to wear dresses that overwhelm her, and this one is a bit more of the same. Still, it’s a pretty amazing look and while she’s struggling to be seen in it, the effect is pretty striking.
Issa Rae in Prabal Gurung
Gorgeous, but we feel like either the slit, the plunge, or the streamers hanging off her shoulder should be edited out.
Kelly Clarkson in Christian Siriano
Honestly, it’s more than a bit mumsy. Nice to see a black-and-gold combo, since so many others went for black and silver, but the style isn’t exactly fresh.
Lena Waithe in Alba
Nailed it, of course.
Mary J. Blige in Alberta Ferretti
It’s divatastic, but that bustline is a bit tricky.
Michelle Pfeiffer in Dior Couture
She’s our fabulous couture witch.
Penélope Cruz in Ralph & Russo Couture
It’s … fine. Seen it many times before.
Salma Hayek (in Balenciaga) and Ashley Judd (in Elie Saab)
The top half of Salma’s dress looks like a workout bodysuit (not a compliment). Ashley’s dress has a lot of drama, but the skirt would be better if it wasn’t sheer. Not because it’s too racy or anything, but the ghostly legs floating underneath it are more distracting than anything else.
More to come in PART THREE, darlings!
