Kate Hudson in Versace: Versace won the night with these ladies, the first of whom looked stunning in a brilliant white gown that drew the eye to curves she doesn’t technically have. I would’ve left her hair down though, as the slicked-back look brought an unflattering emphasis to her ears.
Amy Adams in Versace: Critics are already slamming Adam’s “safe” choice, but I thought the cornflower blue made her hair pop and the multi-layered wrapped look hugged her slim figure in all the right places.
Jessica Chastain in Versace: I wasn’t sure I liked the metallic color choice at first, but Jessica looked lovely in this plunging neckline with her side-swept mane. She wound up looking like a little firecracker. Beautiful.
Lorde in Narciso Rodriguez: Eesh. The only thing I liked about this ensemble is the bling. The 18-year-old nominee (for Mockingjay’s “Yellow Flicker Beat”) went for a conservative look that backfired by making her look twice her age. Those pants are in desperate need of a tailor! If she wanted tips for how to pull this off, she should’ve looked to Ms. Flawless herself, Emma Stone, who looked laidback and gorgeous.
Keira Knightley in Chanel: Apparently Keira Knightley got pregnant and decided she wants to spend her down time sewing Amish tablecloths and dried bug collections into Homeless Couture. (That corsage though!)
Kerry Washington in Mary Katrantzou: The Scandal star is a red hot resident of Shondaland, but this scaly two-toned monstrosity was a major misstep. The shoes don’t even match. Red carpet fashion: NOT handled!
