Darlings, we could not have been more thrilled to see our Sunday night chock full of glittery red carpet attention-seeking from the stars. After so long in the desert, it suddenly started pouring rain. And while we’ve given several of the attendees time under the Spotlight of Judgment, it’s time to herd the rest of them together and do a little drive-by judging. So put your judgin’ pants on, roll up your sleeves and get down to the rundown and party like it’s any date prior to March 13, 2020!
Bebe Rexha in Dsquared2
It’s not reinventing any wheels, but this SO MUCH better than that mess she wore to the MTV EMAs last week. The necklace and ankle bracelets are tacky as hell, but that’s kind of her brand.
Christina Hendricks in Marchesa
We’re a bit surprised to see a Marchesa on the red carpet. The brand plummeted out of favor after the Weinstein scandal and we kinda thought it would be able to stage a comeback at some point, but it hasn’t happened yet. As for the dress, it’s … not great. The sheer yoke looks stale, the shoulder bow looks limp and cheap, and it really didn’t need any fringe. The hem its her at an odd point too. Despite the issues with the design, she actually looks pretty great.
Ellen Pompeo in David Koma
We’re all for formal pajamas this year, but we’re gonna have to draw the line at sheer formal pajamas. This reeks of 2004.
Joey King in Robert Wun
A surprise scrolldown! Considering how it starts, you’d never expect it to end up there. We tend to think skirt-pant combos don’t work way more often than they do, but we’re so pleasantly surprised by the bottom half that we almost love this. The color looks fantastic on her and she’s good at working the unusual. Love the design of the bodice, but the bust is too small and sits too low on her. It really throws the proportions off and makes her look bottom-heavy.
Leslie Jones in Christian Siriano
Can’t argue with any of this. It doesn’t appear to photograph well, but the style is perfect for her.
Machine Gun Kelly in Berluti
We always feel like we have to give him a little shoutout because he manages to dress loud enough for a pop star but often pulls off these impressively editorial high-fashion looks. Yes, even the turtleneck, which we are usually compelled to hiss at. It’s just all so striking and well-suited to him.
Mindy Kaling in Rixo
In a different time, we might ding this for being a little underwhelming as a design, but ease-of-use is a big thing in fashion this year and the color looks great on her.
Sofia Vergara in Dolce&Gabbana
As stale as a week old-baguette. We realize D&G don’t exactly do “fresh and modern,” but if you’re going to sport such a problematic brand, you could at least get away from the more cliched pieces.
Tiffany Haddish in Prabal Gurung
It just feels insanely over-designed. There’s nothing about the bodice we like. The skirt wouldn’t bother us except that style doesn’t work as well with a shiny floral.
