Kittens, we’ve got a ton of red carpetry to plow through, so let’s get to it!
Anya Taylor-Joy in Saint Laurent
Black sheer hose are official a Thing, aren’t they? This is like the fifth time we’ve seen them on a red carpet in the New Year. And she’s probably the youngest wearer yet, which is the biggest signifier of their trendy status. She’s pulling them off. Not so much with the headband, but we appreciate the attempt. Dress is cute.
Christina Ricci in Cushnie
This was a party, not a red carpet, which makes the inclusion here a little dicey, but we thought the coat was interesting enough to highlight for a second. The color’s too dingy for such a whimsical design.
LOVE this. Easily the best of her recent efforts. She doesn’t have to shy away from color, pattern or fit. She can handle all three just fine.
Jennifer Garner in Gucci
Lots of big-ass wreath bows on dresses lately. Hate it.
Too fab for words.
Lily Collins in Elie Saab
You’d think this hyper-romantic frock would be right in her wheelhouse, but it comes off muddy and overdesigned in pictures. Not sure the heavy makeup and tight hair were the right choices for it.
A toga and sparkly socks. Sure, Lindsay. Okay.
Two things are happening here. The shirt and suit are all being rendered in the same fabric. The suit jacket is being secured with a sash. Neither of these two things should ever happen.
This is a Matthew McConnaughey impersonator.
Naomi Watts in Nina Ricci
We have finally reached Peak Pink. Enough.
Olivia Colman in The Hermes of India
Miss Olivia, you need to slap the next person who offers you anything satin to wear.
Nothing to argue with here.
Saoirse Ronan in Miu Miu
Simple, but pretty. When we discussed whether to feature it or not, we kept saying it looked like a dozen other dresses she wore. ALso, those shoes are too distracting.
Tracee Ellis Ross in Gucci
Go on, lady. Do your fashion thing. It’s goofy, but it’s you. And Gucci.
Uzo Aduba in Thom Browne
Low-key Glam, impeccably rendered.
More to come in Part TWO!
