Darlings, we should, at the very least salute many of these ladies for picking bold colors or patterns for the evening. On the other hand, we didn’t think any of them rated a spotlight post and we’re afraid each of them are going to have to live with that lifelong disappointment. The very least we can all do for them is give them the judgment they deserve.
Shall we, then? Be bitches?
Amandla Stenberg in Khaite
Choir soloist. That’s not really a compliment, given the venue.
America Ferrera in A.L.C.
We absolutely think a tuxedo-style jumpsuit can work, but it’s a bit strange to to put a jacket over it. It’s already got lapels. It just looks odd.
Amy Adams in Zac Posen
She tends to wear this shade of blue way too often and we don’t think that hairstyle is all that great for her, but this is a strong look helped by a little shape and swing and a killer set of earrings.
Angela Bassett in Jenny Packham
It’s okay, but the bust design is too busy.
Anna Paquin in Jenny Packham
The color’s nice but the sleeves take it to matronly.
Betty Gilpin in J. Mendel
It’s not going to win any design or style awards, but she looks pretty great. Love the hair.
Chrissy Metz in Kate Spade New York
Personal best. By a mile.
Chrissy Teigen in Maison Yeya
Connie Britton in Galvan London
We actually love this color on her but we think it’s bouncing off her hair and giving it an unfortunate green undertone. Still, we appreciate that she stayed as far away from neutrals as she could.
D’Arcy Carden in Elisabetta Franchi
Janet is hot.
Also, the pops of color in the accessories absolutely make the look.
Debra Messing in Lucia Rodriguez
It’s pretty good. Can’t really argue with any of it.
Emily Blunt in Prada
Ditto Miss Emily, which saddens us because we think she should be shooting for something a little more jaw-dropping than this.
Emmy Rossum in Ralph Lauren
That’s a lot of velvet and a lot of neckline, but she’s handling both perfectly. Love the necklace.
Holly Taylor in Galvan London
It’s just okay, but at least it’s bright.
Jameela Jamil in Oscar de la Renta
Green has been the major accent color on this red carpet. Love the dress but we wish the skirt didn’t have so much sheer exposure. The earrings make a great accent.
Judy Greer in Reem Acra
PRAISE JESUS SOMEONE WORE SOMETHING JUST A LITTLE DIFFERENT.
This is actually pretty gorgeous but totally unexpected for this kind of event.
Kiki Layne in Atelier Versace
It’s just a good dress, but she’s stunning and it suits her to perfection.
Kristen Bell in Cushnie
Great color and spectacular fit but we hate the sheer panel/spaghetti strap combo.
Lucy Boynton in Gucci
Y’know? We’ve gotta respect it. Yes, it’s hideous and looks like a drag queen’s bathrobe but it sure as hell isn’t generic.
Maggie Gyllenhaal in Prada
Not entirely sure that’s her color, but it’s a stunning dress.
Patricia Clarkson in Georges Chakra Couture
It’s striking, but it looks too heavy for such a high slit.
