Shall we, darlings? This has been a rather lovely red carpet affair, but it’s time to shuffle all the guest through the exits, having been fully judged and assessed on their style efforts. Roll up the sleeves of your judgin’ dress and let’s get to it.
A dress like that, while fairly basic, needs a little room to shine (literally and figuratively). We’d have told her to lose the metallic accessories. They’re too distracting and she’s too shiny.
Christine Baranski in Alexandre Vauthier
Love the jacket and the shoes, but the fit and length of those pants? Tragique, Christine.
Condola Rashad in Carolina Herrera
The gown’s pretty and somewhat basic, but she looks great.
Cynthia Erivo in New York Vintage
We can’t believe we’re about to say this, but there’s a first time for everything: The fringe makes the look.
Jenna Ushkowitz in Gucci
That trim is ugly and badly placed. Also, this looks like it’s too small on her.
Katharine McPhee in Zac Posen
Typical folded-napkin bodice from Zac “Folded Napkin” Posen, but the embroidery is pretty.
Katrina Lenk in Georges Chakra Couture
Meh. Generic with an awkwardly designed bodice.
Lachanze in Luxtailor
Conceptually, the design is great. In practice, it needed more luxe-looking textiles and a more subtle way of marrying them.
Lauren Ridloff in Jason Wu
The pleating on the bodice is interesting, but the lack of a true sleeve leaves it looking unfinished.
Ming-Na Wen in Mark Zunino
We’re not in love with how the bust is designed (we’re really hung up on bodices with this one), but we can’t deny the sweep and drama of the look.
Nikki James in Loulette Bride
Rachel Brosnahan in Dolce&Gabbana
An almost hilariously bad choice for that backdrop.
Rachel Bloom in Galia Lahav (Skirt)
No comment. Neil Patrick Harris got the gays in enough trouble shooting off his mouth this week.
Sara Bareilles in J. Mendel
The top and skirt don’t combine all that well and we hate the color and the overuse of ruffles. And yet somehow this doesn’t look that bad on her.
Tatiana Maslany in Zac Posen
It’s okay. We’re surprised to still be seeing sheer dresses on the red carpet, but this one isn’t all that bad. Just kind of … there.
Uzo Aduba in Cristina Ottaviano
Can’t really argue with any of that.
