Monday night note: (Ignore spelling and grammar errors. It’s late and I’m tired.)
Updated Tuesday, August 26 8:01 a.m. MT. I forgot a few things last night.
Giuliana Rancic is now blonde. Just like I was when I got married. And see, the thing was, no one told me, so I will tell her:
Giuliana, you are beautiful, but I think perhaps that brunette suits you better.
But in spite of that, your gown is lovely. I especially loved the fuchsia in the train folds. Pink and red are the coolest.
P.S. Are you thinner? Are you ok?
Also in red, Julia Louis-Dreyfus wearing Carolina Herrera. I believe her dress was “raspberry” – but still in the red family.
I mean, as a general Rule of Life, I don’t care for halters. I hate them.
Still, Ms. Louis-Dreyfus looks stunning. I can only pray to look that good when I’m 53.
And then there’s Minnie Driver in Marchesa.
There’s always one ice skater in every show. Hack this off at the (very unflattering) mid-thigh and toss it over to Nancy Kerrigan to wear it on the 2014 winter tour of Ice Queens.
Octavia Spencer looks lovely. As always she’s in Tadashi Shoji. She’s very loyal.
She needs lipstick, though.
Here’s Shauna Robinson in another red dress.
What? I was sleeping…
Mindy Kaling is wearing a halter by Kenzo. Ugh.
But I really love her so that’s all that I’ll say.
(She looks so pretty.)
So, Vanessa Williams certainly can ROCK a wrap dress/peplum.
I love her blue accessories, too. I mean, she’s gorgeous.
Next is Laura Prepon in Gustavo Cadile. Ok, first of all it appears that she is having a fantastic time, which I love. Secondly, that hair, those eyes, that skin, and that Frozen-inspired dress? I love it all.
It’s sort of a fun, young, hot mess. I love the two different colors. It’s purposefully disheveled.
I like it. She’s gorgeous.
Then, there are the nudies and the whites and earth tones.
Lucy Liu looks amazing in Zac Posen.
Oh, the draping. It’s all just pretty perfect, isn’t it?
Taylor Schilling is wearing a halter by Zuhair Maurad.
SOMEONE TELL HER.
This dress is far too mature for her. And it’s far too long. Just eh.
Little Kiernan Shipka from Mad Men is always dressed appropriately. Here she is in Antonio Berardi.
You guys, she’s 14.
When I was 14 I was wearing converse All-star high tops EVERY.SINGLE.DAY and sitting on the sink in the bathroom picking at my skin.
I won’t pretend that I know who Alexandra Daddario is, but I like her Reem Acra gown. And her lips. But I fear that her dress is slightly transparent. No?
So, I love Allison Williams‘ Giambattista Valli gown. It’s whimsical and lovely. It works for me.
No complaints here.
The pulled back hair kills me, though. Just boring.
So here’s Amanda Crew in Max Azaria.
SHE IS TWENTY-EIGHT.
I hate this. I’ve seen more exciting fabric napkins than this gown.
Amanda Peet is pregnant, therefore, she earns a “Get out of Jail Free” card.
But someone tell me, is it Easter? Are peeps in the stores yet?
Anna Chlumsky looks gorgeous in Zac Posen. This photo doesn’t do the dress justice, it was lovely.
So here’s Kate Mara wearing J.Mendel and I like it. This is a hot mess that WORKS. The top is gorgeous.
I also think that Hayden Panetierre looks gorgeous in Lorna Sarbu.
Show that bump.
So, Gwen Stefani (or this person who faintly resembles Gwen Stafani) is wearing Atelier Versace.
I hate it.
I hate it.
I don’t care if it’s covered in swarovski crystals. I hate it.
(Is it me, or as these women age are they hardly recognizable?)
All of this is bad. Jessica Pare’s Lanvin gown is horrendous. (More ruching gone bad). That ridiculously enormous pendant necklace kills me. (Is it a choker? It sort of looks like a choker. Unforgivable.) Her slicked to the side hair? I can’t.
This is just bad. Awful. Do-over.
I love Lizzy Kaplan’s Donna Karan number. The cut-outs are great. The slicked back, side-parted hair (like everyone else) works for her. BUT, I can’t completely forgive the neckline (halter).
And a train?
You KNEW I’d love this. Sarah Paulson is rocking this Armani Prive.
HOW FUN IS THIS? It’s not like you can wear this to your family reunion. WEAR IT.
I love, love, love it.
She’s enjoying it, too.
I need this.
Speaking of Sarahs. Sarah Silverman looked AMAZING in Marni. This is the best she’s ever looked. I liked the top, but the box-pleats look like drapes.
She’s sexy on top and super Sound of Music on the bottom. Which, might be what she was going for, I don’t know her.
Lena Headey in Rubin Singer and Julianna Margulies both looked lovely in black. Kinda boring for me, but whatever.
SO, you know I love prints. I don’t know this woman, but I love this dress. She’s Betsy Brandt and I would love to own this gown.
AND SHE IS WEARING PURPLE SHOES. Which is laudable.
This needs to be mine. Nice.
I like this print, too. Louise Roe looks amazing. (Another one with smashed-back hair.)
I liked Cat Deely‘s getup, too. Different.
Different is good.
So are carbs.
Julie Bowen was nearly my worst dressed in this Peter Som wreck of a dress. How can you have a cuff on your neck like that?
Ok, now for the worst.
I feel like I’m insulting Ellen Burstyn, but it appears that Katherine Heigl was wearing Ms. Burstyn’s outfit. Some sort of tragic mix-up.
THIS IS HORRENDOUS.
WHAT IS HAPPENING?!?!
And while I adore Kerry Washington and think she’s a doll… There are far more dresses that would have looked much better on her. This Prada number seems to be slightly ill-fitting and not on straight. And that under-neath black sequins peak-a-boo addition pains me.
Like it physically gives me pain.
Speaking of pains, this also hurts me, but I have to do it. I hate this. My WORST dressed of the night goes to Lena Dunham in this frumpy shirt (cap sleeves!) and long tulle ombre skirt.
I just… I just can’t.
Now, let’s talk about my favorites.
Michelle Dockery in Rose Assoulin. This gown pleases me. The colors. It’s elegant. It’s different.
Two thumbs up. I love the hint of pink.
I adored Julia Roberts Elie Saab dress. A.) She’s a consummate professional – smiling every which way. B.) She was the only one to wear a SHORT gown and C.) She looks AMAZING.
And, next I have TWO favorites: Tayonah Parris looks AMAZING and happy and light and free! I adore this Christian Siriano gown.
Oh, I love this.
She’s a delight.
And I LOVE hair piled on the top of her head. 😉
And finally, dare I say, the best of the night for me was Sarah Hyland in Christian Siriano!
I love her hair.
I love the full skirt.
I love the top.
Her makeup looks great.
Her minimal accessories are spot on.
