It’s the Gotham Awards, darlings! The stop on the celebrity awards season calendar where everyone has to come dressed like Batman! Since that’s not remotely true, we should probably just get on with showcasing those stars who showed up in actual clothing and not superhero costumes. And by “showcasing,” we mean what? That’s right! JUDGING.
So put your judgin’ pants on.
We have seen a horrifying vision of the future, kittens. One in which the men of celebritydom, after years of torturing us with businessman blues and blacks, collectively decide to drive us insane with a never-ending array of poop-brown suiting. The horror.
Glenn Close in Zuhair Murad
It’s standard-to-the-point-of-generic mature actress drag, but she looks great.
Kathryn Hahn in Gabriela Hearst
Love the dress. Not feeling the bag.
Laura Prepon (in Yumi Kim) and Ben Foster (in Brunello Cucinelli)
They look like they’re meeting up with some “business associates” later to plan a heist.
Mj Rodriguez in Christian Siriano
Stunning. Mr. Christian, you’ve outdone yourself this time. Her styling looks perfect for it.
Patricia Clarkson in Viktor & Rolf
It’s festive, it’s V&R, and we love her for giving it a go. No, the design doesn’t quite work. But that skirt is a LOT of fun.
Rachel Weisz in Michael Kors Collection
There’s nothing wrong with it, but that print isn’t photogenic at all.
Regina Hall in Pamella Roland
Perfect holiday-formal realness. She looks cutely chic.
What an absolutely gorgeous suit on a gorgeous man.
Taylor Schilling in Ralph Lauren
This isn’t our fave look in the world but it confirms something we’ve long said about her: she’s meant to wear late ’70s disco styles.
Uzo Aduba in Balmain
Uzo does something interesting with her style choices; something she’s probably been told not to do, since it’s the conventional wisdom on these matters. She accentuates or highlights the size of her arms and shoulders all the time. There’s a real sense of power to her style and it’s clearly quite deliberate on her part. This look, with its vaguely military undertones paired with straight-up glam styling, is one of the best versions of this style preference we’ve seen from her. She looks strong, striking and sexy. A perfect example of the idea that “flattering” doesn’t mean “minimizing” or “conforming.”
