Avengers and Avenger-adjacent gals, please don’t take this rundown personally. It’s not that you failed to excite us into granting you a spotlight post (like we did for Sebastian, Letitia, Chris, Chadwick, Danai, Scarlett, Other Chris and Gwyneth). It’s just that there’s so damn many of you Avengers and Avenger-adjacent types that we’ll still be talking about these outfits in a week if we don’t wrap things up now.
Angela Bassett in Mario Dice
While we love this for its boldness and we can’t argue with the styling from the neck up, the jumpsuit is kind of oddly unbalanced in its design. Too much going on in the bodice and nothing going on anywhere else.
Brie Larson in Carolina Herrera Bridal
Here’s the thing about wearing bridal gowns on the red carpet: YOU LOOK LIKE A BRIDE. Nothing inherently wrong with a simple white gown, but you’ve gotta do a little something in the styling to make it look red carpet-ready.
Elizabeth Olsen in Oscar de la Renta
We feel like Emma Watson was doing a much better version of this about three or four years ago. This is just okay. The sash sits too high on her waist and the bustier should have a black lining.
Evangeline Lily in Zuhair Murad Couture
Wow. We don’t like the color at all – in fact, we’re pretty sure we hate it – but we really appreciate this for being glamorous and high-impact while also being a little off the beaten path, which is exactly her kind of thing. There’s much to nitpick here, like the slightly fungal aspect of the textile and the shape of that top, but we have to give her props for doing a great job of standing out from this rather huge crowd.
Karen Gillan in Thom Browne
And speaking of off-the-beaten-path, that’s where Miss Karen tends to spend most of her time. Like Evangeline’s look, we appreciate this one for being so different, but it’s a bit colorless and severe for this kind of premiere.
Zoe Saldana in Givenchy
Zoe took a different route. Rather than trying to compete with some of the over-the-top looks and personalities on this red carpet, she opted to keep things simple (relatively) and classic. We don’t love the giant bow, but we’ve seen so much of them lately that our automatically negative response has been chipped away. We accept giant ladybows, fashion people. You won.
