Jessica Chastain – in Antonio Berardi. Chastain looks like a figure skater with an Asian twist. And it is an absolute non-winner. I fear this one is not a possessor of Wondrous Style, and that is okay, not everyone is that lucky (ha!). A couple of questions: when did slick hair become the go-to? When did a waterfall of hair extensions become the norm? Why do people persist with cut-outs (think Kate Hudson) The dress feels lop-sided – a cut-out does not equal a spray of sparkle and the thigh split does not balance out the heaviness of the dress. Not my thing.
Leslie Mann – in Reem Acra. I would not have bothered with Mann, but for a Facebook comment. I do not dig it. Top to toe fan I am not. Let us start with the dress and its length. It is short. Why is it short? Then, the sheer strips, they be giving me the feel of a long and sheer dress atop a short one (which is a horrid look always and forever – that and the short at the front with long flaps at the back look) and is giving me goose bumps of the bad variety. Is the colour right on her? As a wishy-washy redhead with a pale skin, would you have dressed her in something with a bit of colour? The Golden Globes dress was an example of a far better run for Mann. Oh, and those shoes: clash.
Reese Witherspoon – in Lanvin. I feel like Witherspoon is in on something we are not. And if we were in on it, we would know why the hell she opted for this disaster of a terrible frock. I definitely do not support the magenta and black, and then I see that gaping wound in her skirt, exposing more of that (frankly, not very nice) magenta, mixed with a shocking back bow of the Emma Stone variety and a relatively bad frock became much bloody worse.
Amy Adams – in Max Mara. Bad fit, too short, wrong colour, poor jewellery game. Sorry Adams. I did not enjoy typing any of that.
