I love watching red carpet events. I'd rather watch the red carpet than the awards themselves!
My favourite from the night was:
Zooey Deschenel in Prada!
I thought it was fun, very her with a kind of retro vibe, and flattering. It was one of the most memorable dresses of the night and kudos to her for wearing something that obviously made her happy!
For some unknown reason, the Elders of the Internet are withholding all pictures of Emily Blunt in this fabulous Elie Saab gown except this one!
I actually thought she looked lovely walking out to present.
Way to go!
I can't quite decide on Sofia Vergara...
on the one hand she looks fabulous and on the other I feel like I could just snap her like a twig. Don't you just want to pinch her knees and watch her fall over? This Vera Wang dress is a gorgeous colour though.
And now on to the disappointments...
Reese Witherspoon - couldn't walk, she needed help to get up the one step to the etalk! interview booth!! For someone who champions women's empowerment and launched the Women's Empowerment Bracelet for Avon I think wearing a dress (designed by a man *cough*Zac Posen*cough*) that inhibits one's ability to move is disappointing.
How did she sit and breathe all night?!
That aside there's something wonky with the boob area of the dress and, over all, she looks like a vase.
Lea Michelle in Marchesa kinda looked trashy.
I'm just not a fan of the skanky figure skater/JLo MMVAs strategically placed sequins look. I will say this though, she's got a killer smile and rocked the dress with confidence!
Tilda Swinton in in Jill Sander
"Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change" pretty much sums up how I feel about Tilda Swinton's fashion choices. Sadly, this is one of the better dresses I've seen her in...although it doesn't take much to improve on a black garbage bag (remember the 2008 Oscars)
Who was on your best dressed list?
Any dresses you couldn't stand?
And, thoughts on Ricky Gervais' suit ?!
It makes me think of Hugh Hefner's silk pajama suits:
see! it totally does, right?!
Best Gervais line of the night:
"Nervous? Don't be. This isn't about you," he said. "Tonight, you get Britain's biggest comedian hosting the world's second biggest award show on America's third biggest network. Oh, sorry, fourth. It's fourth."
