2022 Governors Awards Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on November 23, 2022

Look, we fully admit that we milked the Governors Awards for coverage this week (and you can see all of the other posts about this year’s looks here), but it’s time to put this event to bed, good and judged. Let’s get to work, shall we? These poor celebs have been waiting far too long to hear what we all think of their outfits.


Ana de Armas in Louis Vuitton

Nope. That “bodice” has no redeeming qualities. The skirt’s nice, though.



Angela Bassett in Giambattista Valli Couture

She remains a goddess, but this look is not worthy of her. The feather trim makes the skirt look like a rug and the illusion fabric in the bodice is bunching and wrinkling terribly. The top and bottom don’t seem to have anything to do with each other, from a design perspective.



Aubrey Plaza in Mônot

She looks amazing. Apparently the blonde is for a role but we’re surprised by how well it suits her.




Carey Mulligan in Valentino

Once again, she’s wearing a pretty nice dress with styling that isn’t really up to its level. It’s not that she needs to wear a ton of makeup here, but the hair and jewelry situations could use some improving.




Danai Gurira in Max Mara

Simple but gorgeous. The cuff really makes it.




Elizabeth Banks in Elie Saab

This is kind of quietly spectacular. We don’t love the bow or the keyholes, but the skirt is gorgeous.




Gabrielle Union in Prada

She’s managing to make this look effortless and NOT look like lingerie, which is a tribute to her style skills.




Jamie Lee Curtis in Tom Ford

Chic and classic. We’re all for a little whimsy, but we don’t the bagel minaudiere really works with it.




Jean Smart in Laura Basci

The color and pattern are gorgeous on her, but we don’t like the shape of her right sleeve and we don’t like the idea of a sheer left sleeve with it.




Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton

She’s a ride-or-die LV girl. She can pull of weird fashion in her sleep. She’s making this look chic and effortless. It’s giving Leia.




Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

Hmm. We have to say that as charming as the dress is, we really don’t like the beige color or the overuse of stars in the design. It just feels busy and a little dreary.




Kathryn Hahn in Lanvin

This is so close to looking great on her, but we don’t like that shoulder situation at all. It would be much improved with more of a halter neckline. We also don’t think the necklace goes with it.




Keke Palmer in Robert Wun

It looks like the cowcatcher on the front of an old-timey locomotive. Which is another way of saying that it does not look good.



Laura Dern in Ralph Lauren

The skirt’s kind of fun, but we really don’t like the idea of a cable knit sweater with it and that shade of red is a little harsh for her.



Mia Goth in Dolce & Gabbana

It looks pretty impressive from the back, but considerably less so from the front.




Michelle Yeoh in Bottega Venetta

It’s an interesting design and we appreciate that she chose something a little edgy, but those sleeves are terrible and we hate the hem.




Mindy Kaling in Versace

The fit and shape look great on her, but the bust design is a little funky and those straps are too widely placed.




Olivia Wilde in Erdem

As much as we tend not to love foundation garment fashion, this is uniquely gorgeous. Her styling doesn’t feel particularly well coordinated to it, though.




Rooney Mara in Givenchy

It’s giving Madam X. It’s also one of the most traditional things we’ve seen her wear in ages.




Sadie Sink in Alexander McQueen

The perfect ingenue look.




Taylor Russell in Schiaparelli Couture

We are living for this girl’s commitment to – and skill at working – super-cray pieces. Those earrings are ridiculous and also FABULOUS.
