KIERNAN SHIPKA in Los Angeles
top and skirt by MaxMara, purse by Christian Louboutin
Sally Draper: doing it better than you since 1960, even though she wasn’t born until 1999. LOVE the accessories.
CATE BLANCHETT at the Women in Film Awards
gown by Chloé
What would look like curtains on anyone else looks like art on Cate Blanchett, because she is a magical woodland creature. If she were shorter, I’d be strongly considering the possibility that she’s actually one of the Children of the Forest.
KERRY WASHINGTON at the Women in Film Awards
dress by Sportmax, shoes by Christian Louboutin
This might be Kerry’s first red carpet appearance since her baby, and she looks positively glorious. I recently saw this splatter-painted print on Orange is the New Black‘s Taylor Schilling; I loved it then, and I love it now. The orange pumps with the rainbow-dotted toes are just the cutest fucking things I’ve ever seen.
EMMY ROSSUM in New York City
dress by Monique Lhuillier
Love the fit, the texture, the structure – it’s all working for me. A pop of color on her lips would have been the cherry on top of this chic little sundae.
JESSICA BIEL in Paris
dress and shoes by Giambattista Valli, jewelry by Tiffany & Co., purse by Fendi
A great dress, if strangely wintery for an all-white, mid-summer look. The Tiffany jewels are delightful, and it’s certainly one of Jessica’s better looks, but girl needs to change up that hair once in awhile.
JENNIFER MORRISON in Monaco
dress by Georges Hobeika, purse by Christian Louboutin
Chic, tasteful, and surprisingly well-put-together, considering Jennifer Morrison is one of my least favorite people on the red carpet.
JENNIFER MORRISON in Monaco
gown by Romona Keveza
The hair and makeup don’t compliment the dress particularly well – neither does the purse, for that matter – but this is one hell of a gown. That pale yellow color is a dream on her.
ROSE BYRNE at the Women in Film Awards
jumpsuit by MaxMara, purse by Rauwolf
For once, I actually like this disco-throwback look. But I’d like it more without the optical illusion that makes Rose Byrne appear to have the world’s tallest vulva.
ROSE BYRNE in Los Angeles
dress by MaxMara
Great dress, sexy hair. Hate the shoes with it. Since the black shoe blends in with the black carpet, she kind of looks like she has talons.
ROSARIO DAWSON in Los Angeles
gown by Osman
Soft and elegant, if a little underwhelming.
CARRIE UNDERWOOD in New York City
dress by Rubin Singer, shoes by Henri Lepore
Carrie Underwood must have hired a new stylist in the last year or so. She seems to have said farewell to the stereotypical country star looks and upped the modernism quite a bit. I love the zig-zag print and the asymmetrical shape, but the earrings and purse are distracting when paired with a dress that already has so much going on.
TAYLOR SCHILLING in Los Angeles
dress by A.L.C., purse by Rebecca Minkoff, shoes by Casadei
This dress could have been boring, but Taylor saved it with some fun styling choices. The makeup might be just a bit too heavy, but I kind of like the overall severity of the look.
JESSICA ALBA in New York City
dress by Preen, purse by Corto Moltedo, shoes by Brian Atwood
Since Jessica Alba hasn’t been in a movie in what seems like decades, and all she really does is hit the red carpet, you’d think she could give us a little more than this. A gold purse paired silver shoes can make you look like a slightly blind grandma who thought the metallics looked close enough. And the casual-feeling fabric of the dress looks strange with such dressy accessories.
EVA LONGORIA at the Women in Film Awards
jumpsuit by MaxMara, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Well, at least it’s not another Zuhair Murad mermaid gown, but I really think Eva Longoria is one of the top three most boring people on the red carpet.
MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL at the Women in Film Awards
gown by Peter Som
This silhouette makes me want to sit Maggie down with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and just cry things out for awhile.
JAIME KING in New York City
dress by Jason Wu
The hair and makeup are actually much better than usual, though I have never thought the platinum hair/brown eyebrows combo works on her. Aside from the color of this dress, which is totally fucking awesome, this is all rather confused. I’m pretty sure she got dressed in the dark.
DAKOTA FANNING in New York City
dress by Kenzo
I’m trying to like it, I really am. But those pockets are straight-up fugly, and I don’t even understand what’s happening on the bottom of her shoes.
ALEXA CHUNG in London
suit by Saint Laurent, shoes by Tabitha Simmons
Those shoes make her feet look like skis. Love the idea of a cranberry velvet suit, but the proportions are a mess.
SANDRA BULLOCK in Los Angeles
gown by Vionnet, purse by Charlotte Olympia
No. That’s not a thing. I don’t even know what is supposed to be happening with that cut-out there, but it is most definitely not a thing.
KAROLINA KURKOVA in New York City
gown by Honor
Sorry, Karolina Kurkova, but even you cannot make “nun couture” happen. It’s just not going to happen.
