She’s wearing white Donna Karan. Basically a wedding dress. You’ve seen it a thousand times. What’s new here, or new-ish, at least since last year’s Met Gala, is Ashley Greene’s thinnification. Ashley Greene was always fit. She had a great body. Slim but strong and seemingly healthy.Somewhere along the way though, as they do in Hollywood, someone must have told her she was “too athletic”, and “not delicate enough”. Full Story

There’s nothing objectionable here, no. And I might have liked where J Mendel was going with a white tuxedo dress because I do love the lapels. But maybe on someone else, someone less...shruggy. Maybe Christina Ricci who could have worn it with more theatricality and more interesting footwear. Claire Danes however just . Full Story

No idea. NO idea how this happens. And how Eva Mendes ends up in it. Julianna Margulies, since she seems to enjoy ceramic sh-t all over her dress, fine. But how Prada paired this with Eva Mendes, I can’t understand. It’s a terrible combination. And she looks overwhelmed by it. Shellshocked, even. Like, how did I end up here, in this crazy dress with refrigerator magnets all over it, the peplum part proportionally much too big in comparison to my torso, and why did Prada make me look so bad? Did Gwyneth have something to do with this? Can we find a way to blame her? There’s something about Eva’s expression that’s telling me she’s been meangirled. Full Story

There were several peplums represented last night.  To me Amy Poehler wore hers best. She looked the most comfortable. And really, really confident. No clunky accessories around her neck, nothing extra about the hair, although, God, I really wish they’d let it die, that skirt feathering from 2006. Full Story

If we’re comparing bright Calvin Kleins in that seemingly heavy, wrinkle-free material, I’ll take Emma Stone’s orange at the Golden Globes in 2011 - click here to see. There’s something about the tank design here on Emily Blunt’s, and the band across the back, that makes it almost casual, like beach wear. Full Story

Only Sofia Vergara could have rescued this Marchesa. It’s not the dress, it’s all the wearer. On anyone else this is ghastly. But that’s the Sofia silhouette. It’s kind of the same silhouette she’s been working on every carpet for at least 6 months. Of course Sofia is always, always faultless, of course she is. Full Story
