Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang at the People’s Choice Awards: lovely & classic?

More fashion photos from last night’s People’s Choice awards! You can see the list of last night’s winners here. Sandra Bullock was one of the big “gets” for the People’s Choice, and in true Sandy fashion, she was gracious enough to appear in person (even though it would have been easy for her to blow it off). Sandra was given the People’s Choice Favorite Humanitarian Award for her years of work in New Orleans, including her “dedication to NOLA’s Warren Easton Charter High School.” You can read more about Sandra’s NOLA work here. Sandra wore this pretty and understated Vera Wang two-piece – it’s actually a corseted top and a pencil skirt, not a dress. Blue is one of her best colors, and I think Sandy uses black as a default (as do many women). So, she looked good, she looked classic, and she looked comfortable. Also: I LOVE her darker hair color. I wish more women would go darker.

A lot of people are talking about Naomi Watts’ Alexander McQueen dress like it’s the best thing she’s ever worn. While I like that she went for a different, punky sort of vibe than she usually has, I don’t care for this dress. I think the “bib effect” of the gold sequined top looks really cheap and Marchesa-like. And I don’t like the multi-colored beaded halter thing either. Still, she’s a beautiful woman and she loves fashion, so I hope this will be the first of many interesting/arguable looks that we’ll discuss over the next seven weeks or so.

Call me crazy, but I think Olivia Munn might be too dressed-down for the People’s Choice. This is a boring/fug dress, but it seems more suited for a lunch date than the People’s Choice.

Morena Baccarin (Homeland) in a Donna Karan Atelier jumpsuit. White is a great color on her, she’s beautiful and she has an amazing figure. She kind of annoys me as an actress on Homeland, but whatevs.

Rumer Willis in… I don’t have the designer ID. Sorry! I love this silhouette on her (it’s perfect for her figure) but I’m not crazy about the stripes. She looks like a sparkly barber’s pole.

    Rumer Willis for the win!

    (wow, never thought I’d see that sentence)

  2. Jayna says:

    Sandy looks great. I would like the length a tad shorter. Rumer looks great also.

  3. Christina says:

    Sandra looks great, down to the black hair and pink lipstick. But….. am I right in fearing that her face is morphing into yet another ‘caught in a wind tunnel’ look?

  4. Dree says:

    I love, love Sandy B’s new hair color. The dress isn’t my favorite but she looks amazing.

    Thank you for saying Morena Baccaren annoys you on Homeland. I was starting to think that was just me. And that Dana girl?! Help me.

  5. Audrey says:

    I think those stripes make the dress and add to its elongating effect.

  6. sasa says:

    Sandra looks good but I dislike the shoes.

    Naomi’s floating backless bib looks weird but black and gold is a great combination on her.

    Olivia never gets it right fashion wise. Shame, because I find her to be very pretty.

    Morena… meh. Those bunching pant legs are not good.

    Rumer is my favorite of the grup, that’s a very pretty dress on her. My only quip is the lone sausage curled strand of hair.

  7. hairball says:

    Morena I know is supposed to be a beautiful woman but I just can’t with her face. It is SO distracting to me on Homeland. She’s had an obvious nose job making her nose too small for her face and a big inverted slope in the profile. And she pumps up her upper lip making her look like a duck. I hate when she is on-screen because of her not natural face.

  8. mari says:

    Love Naomi Watts’ dress! And the styling and make up.

    Rumer looks really good too.

  9. Micah says:

    Sandra – I like the hair color and makeup, love the vivid lip especially with the darker hair shade. I don’t care for the outfit at all.

    Naomi – I love the dress, but not on her.

    Rumor – I think she looks great! But whats with that “super long curl thing” just dangling there? That curl is a little distracting.

  10. Meow Mix says:

    Did anyone else notice that when Morena Baccarin was announcing last night that she has a visible Adams Apple? I’ve never seen her on Homeland but was mesmerized by this when she was speaking. Weird??

  11. Mew says:

    Sandra’s shoes are a really bad choice for that dress.

  12. Lucinda says:

    Rumor had a guest spot on Hawaii 50 a few weeks ago and she is much, much prettier in motion than in still photographs. I was really surprised because I’ve only seen photos. She also looks A LOT like Demi did back in the 80′s. She may have Bruce’s chin but the rest is all Demi (pre-plastic).

  13. Harpreet says:

    I agree, Naomi’s dress looks incomplete.

  14. HadleyB says:

    Sandy looks great, love her. She is one of the few classy celebs.

    I think the dark color looks good on her but most women when they get older can’t pull off such a dark color even if they had jet black hair at 25, so going lighter even a shade or 2 than their natural makes them look better.

    Sandy has had a lot of work done, A LOT over years but it was done over the years instead of all at once when her face fell at 40/45, and whoever did it did a great job. She doesn’t look creepy like Madonna or any of the real housewives.

  15. serena says:

    I hate Sandra’s dress. I mean the top is nice, but the skirt kind of horrible and it seems too tight. Also it should have been just a bit shorter..

    Still, the others are no better.

  16. Pam says:

    The dresses were great, but why don’t they fix their hair anymore? That awful shaggy hanging hair does the look no justice.

    It just seems like they work hard on everything but the hair… or Tinseltown needs new stylists. Just an observation.

  17. Crack Fox says:

    Sandra looks so sexy!

    Naomi Watts has been stepping up her red carpet game. She looks great.

  18. spinner says:

    Rumer looks absolutely amazing. I love that dress!! Sandra does not look good in my opinion. The dark hair is way too harsh. The say, as a woman ages…you should bring your color back to what it was when you were age 2 – 3 years. Sandra has had a ton of work done & it shows.

  19. vixo says:

    I love Sandra’s hair + makeup !

  20. lucy2 says:

    I like all but Olivia’s, and probably like Rumer’s the best.
    I too think Sandra’s had work done, but hopefully she stops and doesn’t do more. It’s nice they recognized her for her work with that school – I never heard about it until years later, but she’s been very involved with them since Katrina.

  21. e.non says:

    bullock looks like fran drescher… and very lovely in that dress.

  22. Rux says:

    I love Sandy!!!! I don’t care if she wears a hot pink velour jumpsuit!

  23. KC says:

    Love Sandy. Don’t like this look on her. Her hair looks off… the face… just not working for me.

  24. Diana says:

    Luuuuuv me some Sandy, and Rummer W looked really good.

  25. j.eyre says:

    I am at least OK with everyone here (that sounds so hippy of me)

    I like Sandra’s top. I am not a big one-shoulder fan but the cutout lacework is nice. I don’t like the shoes witht he outfit and I am not sure about the pinstripe ont he skirt with the lace. If you are going to go Naughty Secretary, really commit to it. Overall, OK

    I like naomi’s dress. I don’t love it – it has it’s flaws, but it shows well from the front. Do not like her hair and makeup with it, though.

    Olivia – yes, too casual. On it’s own, it’s a cute dress

    The white pantsuit is OK. I do not care for strapless pantsuits but the beaded top makes me like it more. I love the color (which is white, I know. but it is a soft snowy white)

    Rumer looks dynamite – great dress and does wonders for her figure. I like the stripes.

  26. Luise says:

    Rumer looks the best ever. She has had her chin shaved down and it is quite becoming. Very pretty.

  27. KellyinSeattle says:

    Sandra can do no wrong in my eyes….I want a picture of Louis!!
    Rumer has a lovely figure.

  28. Amanda G says:

    I think that’s the best Rumor has ever looked!

  29. Claudia says:

    SANDY!! It’s rare to see her on red carpets or in public anymore,isn’t it? Fantastic dress on Rumer Willis.

  30. evyn says:

    How come no one has mentioned Jennifer Aniston’s dress? Ugh!

  31. Alana Fajina says:

    Gosh Sandi is just so dreamy. She is Thee Numero Uno on my hubby’s cancer list. LOL!, And lemme tell you, I am Not Hating, nor have I ever for that matter. She is just such a classy lady. The outfit Totally works for her!!
    I also LOVE Naomi’s dress and I’d be friggin giddddddddy if I got to wear something so hot. I’m not loving the way she is standing though, like the dress is wearing her. I Hate when actresses slouch.
    I seriously do Not like Olivia’s dress!! Gosh, that thing is Fug. For any event, except like tea with the first lady or something!

  32. Grace says:

    Sandy for the win but Rumer looks really lovely too.

  33. Granger says:

    I’m kind of shocked by how thin Naomi looks. I know she’s always been small, but has she lost weight recently?
