Whatever, I miss when people had fun in fashion.
So let's look at the good, the meh and the whaaa?
Doing it the right way
THANK YOU to Naomi and Daphne for going McQueen all the way.
Is it too much that I was expecting EVERYONE to look like this? Because I don't think so.
Christina Ricci and Crystal Renn also went ALL IN with the drama, in incredible Zac Posen gowns.
Hamish Bowles never lets anyone down, of course.
Hailee Stanfeld's Stella McCartney gown was dramatic in all the right ways and also suited the young actress very well. I'm sure she has a stylist but I'd love if she was really just that cool all the time. I'm not that big a fan of mullet-y hemlines but in this case it just works.
(Also really into Jay Z's hair at the moment)
Lookin' good ladies
Stella McCartney looked INCREDIBLE last night. Her dress was simple but it had all the right details to make it a perfect reflection of her style as well as pay homage in this night.
Also homegirl looks like shes 25? How DOES she do it!
Ashley's HUGE vintage Christian Dior sleeves kinda killed me.
But the best thing by far is that strong eyebrow she's got going on.
Dakota Fanning looked really adorable in her flower-strewn Valentino gown.
I loved Shalom's throwback Marchesa gown. The sheer skirt really gave it the necessary spice. Mary J's Gucci gown could've been a snoozefest but the gold detailing around the bodice gave it the right amount of McQueen influence.
We weren't expecting Anna to pull out all the crazy stops and come wearing a mask or anything, but the striped detail of her fully glittering Chanel dress was kinda retro and totally awesome. Diane Kruger's Jason Wu gown was just beautiful.
Repping the hippie vibe corner is Mary-Kate in a vintage Givenchy gown that almost made her disappear into the red carpet (and I kinda liked that?) and Sarah Burton's ethereal Lord of the Rings-goddess dress that made her appear even MORE saintly in the eyes of the fash-crowds.
It doesn't hurt to put in a little effort sometimes
What is UP with ALL the SHORT hems???? It's a GALA! The men are in black ties and you're wearing some beach-bridesmaid getup? Come on Lara Spencer, let's think this through next time.
Not that she was the only one, I mean Alexa Chung's Christopher Kane dress is super cool, but she can probably wear this to any other red carpet/grocery store/music festival/whatever.
(Peep Giovanna Bataglia giving her the stink eye in the background? hahaha)
Milla's Marni day-dress? This isn't brunch.
Jessica Szhor's dress is from Topshop.
TOPSHOP!!! This isn't the Meatpacking dude! GUHR.
I'm broker than all these people and even I would find something nicer to wear than a goddamn strapless pouffy dress from Topshop.
Edit: Ginnifer Goodwin wore Topshop too but her dress looked like vintage Halston or something and it was nice. Not fancy enough, but nice.
Like 20 girls wore a version of this custom(!!!) Escada dress to my senior prom in 2001. Sorry, Kerry Washington.
Ah Joy Bryant, post-beach dip sweater dresses are never appropriate for black-tie events, not even if they are from Missoni (Mare).
Michelle Williams put a bird on it. I know it's Miu Miu but blagh, I get it she's cute and indie and yadda yadda yadda. Let's go beyond the obvious next time!
A special shout-out to Amy Poehler who I thought did a nice job of channeling a bit of McQueen vibez with her dramatic eye makeup, hairdo and gold necklace.
Ps. No Gaga?
