We may not have much in the way of red carpets going on right now, but at least the celebrities are all still putting together looks for us to judge. We thank them for these blessings, even if most of them didn’t necessarily warrant its own spotlight moment. Even so, these ladies put in the work and for that they should be commended. Also judged, but in a nice way, we promise.
Alicia Keys in Versace
We kinda passed this one by in our review of the Image Awards looks, but it really started to grow on us over the course of the week. We’re not feeling the laces on the skirt, but we love the Greek goddess vibe of the hair and jewelry, which works really well with the design.
Dianna Agron in Miu Miu
We don’t know how she managed to snag such a plain and off-brand Miu Miu. It’s a fine enough dress, but overall, it doesn’t make for a particularly memorable red carpet shot. It needs some sparkle or something.
Dianna Agron in Oscar de la Renta
We like the idea of pairing that jacket and dress, but we’re not loving the color story and we think the pairing would work better if the neckline was a little higher.
Doja Cat in Dolce & Gabbana
Love the coat, the makeup and the jewelry. We’re remaining silent on everything else because we were raised well.
Eiza González in Burberry
It’s not a bad little dress, but it matches her hair exactly and that’s kind of distracting. Also, we just can’t love the Jolly Green Giant shoes, we’re afraid.
Grabrielle Union in Sammy B
This lady knows how we’re all really dressing right now. Her trick is that she makes it look chic.
Gabrielle Union in TribalByn
Jurnee Smollett in Alexandre Vauthier Couture
Another look from the Image Awards that we kinda passed over, mainly because it’s styled exactly like the look book, right down to the focus-pulling shoes. Not that it’s a crime to do such things, especially when the results look this great. The proportions are a little odd but she’s really making them work.
Laura Harrier in Versace
This look is all about the styling. The hair clips and the bag are making that relatively plain dress sing. We don’t love the design of those shoes (or the way she’s barely able to stay in them), but the color choice is fun.
Lily Rabe in Khaite
We just don’t like anything about the design of this dress. Sorry, Lily. You can work some fairly hard-to-work styles but this one may be impossible to conquer.
Shahadi Wright Joseph in Shuting Qiu
Love the print and the silhouette. She looks fantastic. We could do without the asymmetrical hem but no one asked us.
A pretty cute look for heading into a day of work at the America’s Got Talent taping.
Sofia Vergara in Dolce & Gabbana
A decidedly less cute look – and not just because it’s D&G. She needs to retire the leopard print. We don’t care how much she loves it. Her hair and makeup look fantastic, but we don’t love the shape or design of the dress.
Yara Shahidi in Dior
She’s been slaying that sleek-and-chic loungewear vibe a lot lately.
