This red carpet was a DOOZY, right? I mean, I'm very pleased that we've seen the end of sheer dresses over granny panties (knock on wood) but it appears that velvet is back in a big, early 90s way. Gird your loins. Speaking of loin girding, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that WE GRADE ON A CURVE for some celebs. So that's that. Let's get down to it, shall we?
Thor and Wife!
This could have been fairly standard but the pattern makes all the difference. Thank you for reminding me you exist, Serendipity lady!
While it is CLEARLY pandering to the WTS set, that is one hell of a necklace and it is PERFECT for this showstopper Ursula gown. I love that she graduated from mermaid to Ursula. Well done, Sophia.
Hear me out. We grade on a curve. I love this color on her, against all odds, and I think the cut works for her figure. The bust is faaaaaar too tight on her, but I'll let that slide. Also, I have a soft spot for her hair because that's what mine looks like in "fancy mode." I think she looks better than ever before.
With credit to reader Rosey who supposed McConnaughey to say, "I get older, Helen Mirren stays the same age." Perfection embodied. How could we continue to survive without your red carpet splendor, Helen?
Jared Leto (seen here with brother Shannon)!
Please ignore Shannon and his egregious piping. Jared Leto looks like a champion. The tux is GORGEOUSLY tailored (if a bit snug, ah rock stars) and he's got the weird shawl going on, which somehow works. Thirtysomething women everywhere sighed when they saw their beloved Jordan Catalano dressed to the nines. [SIDEBAR: Jordan Catalano's bun will make an appearance in another section of the rundown. Be warned.]
You guys, Jessica Chastain looks so good it actually makes me angry. Why in the world couldn't she have worn this last year instead of the baby blue saggy boob monstrosity!?!?!? But okay, living in the present... this dress is a dream on her and I am DYING over her ice.
On one hand, it's basic and standard. On the other hand, it's perfectly executed flawless glamour. Well done, person I have no idea who you are.
Yes, girl, yes. This dress. All the time, every day.
There is absolutely no reason I should love this as much as I do. But maybe it's the girl in blue in the background who seems to have given up on life the moment she saw Naomi?
Again, grading on a curve. I don't love the bottom really. BUT. This is 800 times better than the sad duvet covers she usually shows up wearing, so I'm all for it. Go girl.
Against absolutely all odds, Jimmy Fallon wore the best tailored tux of the night. And I love him for it. But, Jimmy, be a dear and button up on the red carpet.
Somehow I feel that we're going to fight about this but I love this look on her. The plunge, the fancy braided updo, the long necklace, the contrasting reds. All of it: YES.
Really cool gown, great color for her, looking like herself, and absolutely fits. Julie Delpy, you will always have my heart.
While I could do without the random stomach notch, this dress looks great on her and she looks gorgeous.
There were some mutinous "Queen of Hearts" rumblings in the peanut gallery but I love it. It looked great on tv and she looks lovely.
Poehler and Fey!
Like cheese fries and 3 AM, these two are absolutely perfect together. (hate that neckline on Amy but love the color so ok)
