Ok. I wasn’t that impressed. In fact, I was severely disappointed. Step it up people! All the gold (Kate, Salma, Elizabeth Banks, Claire Danes, SJP, Veronica Mars, Bar Rafaeli, Jessica Alba, Gwyneth ) was boring. I felt like anything new or modern was a rarity. All the sequins invoked prom. Read on at your own risk…it gets pretty ugly. I’m not usually this mean to my favorite models & celebs! Go here for the full coverage.
Style winner: Doutzen Kroes. Simple, fresh, flattering.
Style Winner: Diane Kruger – this is probably due to my personal positive bias
Style Winner: Ashley Olsen. Gorgeous. Different than anything I’ve seen her in.
Style Winner: Freaking Sandra Lee from “Semi-homade” showed up a bunch of folks. And what was she doing there?
Style Winner: Gisele, because what else would she do with that body?
Style Winner – Amy Adams, because I rarely like what she wears and I like this.
Style Winners: Angela Lindvall & Karlie Kloss – this is gold done well (on breathing mannequins)
Style Winner: Hilary Rhoda – classic, chic, short – white done right.
Barbara Walters – you deserve to be spanked for this
Taylor Swift – your makeup looks fug and you’re supposed to be a Cover Girl. The only thing worse than the makeup is the dress/hair.
Emma Stone, you are so pretty girl! Remember what you wore to the golden globes? This atrocity made me forget.
Alexa Chung – I grow weary of you and your quirkiness
I literally made the exact same face as Serena when I saw this photo
Ashley Greene- I’ve seen that dress before but your hair looks nice.
GAAAAH Nicole Richie, the hair! the sleeve cut-outs! eeek
Lucy Liu – Career damaging
Sarah Burton, are you freaking kidding? I’m trying to conjur up some kind of saying like “if you can’t do, teach” but I don’t think it works in this situation.
Fergie – one of the ugliest dresses I’ve ever seen. It also looks like you have jaundice. You might want to have that checked out.
Eva Mendes – terrible.
Ginnifer Goodwin – nice try
Michelle – you rarely do wrong in my eyes. But this dress makes your arms look big. We all know your arms aren’t big.
Penelope – boring, boring, boring
Rashida Jones – ew
It’s hard to say “hanous” on the same line as Miranda Kerr but somehow it works in this sitch.
Demi Moore wore a fascinator! She’s gotta get props for that.
Is that feather pouf attached to ERW somehow? UPDATE: I’ve realized it’s not attached to ERW, but is attached to Florence Welch. ERW – you stay in style losers for standing close to Flo Welch (I still love your music Flo & the machine but let’s keep fashion and friendship separate, k?)
I literally almost threw up in my mouth when I saw this creation on Carolyn Murphy, who is typically so effortlessly lovely
Ri-Ri, I’m kindof over you looking naked but not really being naked, not to mention the red hair. Find a new schtick.
That’s all I got folks! How did you feel about the lack of fashion on this most fashionable night?
