Kittens, we’ve given the spotlight to quite a few of the more notable attendees, but it’s time to put this year’s Governors Awards red carpet to bed. Which isn’t to say that none of these looks rated a more intense form of scrutiny, but if we tried to do a separate post for every eye-popper on this red carpet, we’d never get it done. A tribute, we suppose, to how much the stars are bringing their A games to this year’s awards track earlier than ever.
Onward! To judgment!
Awkwafina in J. Mendel
Hmm. We suspect this looked impressive on a hanger, but it kind of hangs off her and the color isn’t particularly photogenic.
Charlize Theron in Tom Ford
That bodice looks a bit more complicated than it should be, but we kind of dig the retro sort of Jackie Kennedy-esque style of the dress. It’s a surprise coming from her.
Constance Wu in Miu Miu
The shape is weird and the textile photographs cheap.
Da’Vine Joy Raldolph in Tadashi Shoji
If you haven’t caught Dolemite is My Name on Netflix, do so immediately. It’s Eddie Murphy’s best role in decades and Miss Da’Vine more than meets him. The dress is fabulous, but the slit’s a bit too high.
Dakota Johnson in Brandon Maxwell
No. This is stupid.
Geena Davis in Romona Keveža
Gorgeous. That’s reading as blue and navy on our monitor, which makes us love it more.
Greta Gerwig in Lela Rose
Mmm. The color’s great but the design is dowdy. Those straps and that neckline are terrible.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw in Erdem
We were about to declare this a rare example of The Vampire’s Wife really working for someone only to find out it’s not TVW. Pretty sure we’d hate this on other wearers, but she’s making it work.
Idina Menzel in Paule Ka
It’s not exciting but it’s hard to argue with.
We love how she’s always so fabulously over the top.
Jamie Bell and Kate Mara (in Hiraeth)
How come he gets to wear an entire tuxedo and she has to go out draped in a cobweb?
As always with The Hamm, things are just a bit too tight. And as always, we find ourselves working to make a complaint of that fact.
Kaitlyn Dever (in Alberta Ferretti) and Beanie Feldstein (in Michael Kors Collection)
They both look spectacular by playing against expectations. We would not have expected Kaitlyn to look that good in such a frilly, floaty, romantic gown and we definitely didn’t expect Beanie to ditch her birthday girl dresses form something with this much sparkle and glamour.
Keke Palmer in Christian Siriano
Bringing the drama. The ruffles are a bit much and we don’t think the eyeshadow really works, but that color does look amazing on her.
Lauren Dern in Brandon Maxwell
Love the velvet skirt, but again, we find that mid-calf length a bit awkward.
Lili Reinhart in Oscar de la Renta
An okay dress in a hideous color, we’re sorry to say. That yellow makes anything look cheaper.
Olivia Wilde in Ralph Lauren
An absolute stunner.
Renée Zellweger in Erdem
Miss Woman’s gonna stick to classic shapes and styles no matter how much we might huff and puff that she can freshen things up a bit. This is fine, but the hem length’s a bit hard to work.
Robert Pattinson in Dior Homme
See? This is what we fear. The Batmanning. He’s just gonna wear all-black from now until the film opens, isn’t he? Tsk. You’re more interesting than that, R Patz.
