Salma Hayek in navy, bowed Gucci at the GGs: lovely and try-hard?

I wasn’t expecting to see Salma Hayek on the carpet, and just like Kate Hudson, it felt like… no one was really excited to see her. Like, Salma, Kate and J.Lo come to the opening of an envelope these days and people are just bored with seeing them on EVERY red carpet. Salma’s Gucci gown was pretty-ish. It was really simple and basic, save for the enormous hip bow which could have been mistaken for a peplum. Did anyone else see how Salma was posing on the carpet? She kept throwing her head back and shaking out her hair and lifting her arms like the red carpet was a Fellini film or something. Try-hard. LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME. I guess she was happy to have a night away from her husband? He wasn’t there…? Interesting.

Giuliana Rancic in Celia Kritharioti – I just don’t understand why she changed out of her lilac dress which she wore in the pre-show red carpet special. That dress was really pretty. This one was terrible. Insert joke about goth drag queens or whorehouse madams here.

Michelle Dockery (from Downton Abbey) in Alexander McQueen. I think this might have been the best example of McQueen on last night’s carpet – I preferred it to Nicole Kidman’s McQueen and Kate Hudson’s.

Julianna Margulies in Emilio Pucci – I hated this. I hated her ponytail, I hated the fact that the dress wasn’t lined, I hated the lace throughout the skirt, and I hate that she didn’t win. I love her cute husband, though.

    Michelle Dockery looked wonderful. Juliana’s slicked back hair isn’t flattering, and Salma looked as if she was trying for a near-nip-slip.

    Salma Hayek looks ridiculous posing in these photos. And WTF is with Rancic’s dress?! Are those BATS on the front lace panel?

  3. Diana says:

    I also hated Julianna Margulies didn’t win, what a bummer.

  4. bea says:

    I thought Salma Hayek’s hair looked darker than normal and I didn’t think it was that flattering. The cheesecake posing is a bit much. Her dress is o.k., just a bit boring.

    I love everything about Salma – overposing and all.

    Michelle Dockery is divine.

    Michelle Dockery’s dress isn’t Alexander McQueen. According to Red Carpet Fashion Awards it’s Alexandre Vauthier Couture.

    I’ve been visiting this site for about 3 years and “She kept throwing her head back and shaking out her hair and lifting her arms like the red carpet was a Fellini film or something.” is the best thing I have ever read on here ever

    Dockery’s dress is not McQueen, it’s Vauthier

    Salma dress is beautiful! It fits her just dreamy. She looks like a latin Marilyn Monroe.
    Blowing kisses is getting old.

    OH…my…god…..a 40something, mama, actress blowing a kiss???

    when will the ladies of hollywood realize that blowing the crowd/paparazzi kisses is just….stupid! childish! TACKY…

    I mean, do any of you have pictures where you’re just blowing kisses left n right? ok,, prob some college/sorority/drunk ladies night out yes, but…if you had arrived at a convention for your job surrounded by colleagues and peers would you stand there and BLOW KISSES all night???

    sooo. stupid.

    I don’t really care much either way about Salma, but off topic:
    1) Loved that Jason Bateman presented
    2) Loved that Hugh Jackman gushed and gushed about his wife
    3) Loved that Jack Black (he’s annoying, but..) he brought his mom.
    4) Loved when Olivia said her dad (Denzel) was a nerd.
    5) Loved Sally Field; was sad Meryl wasn’t there.

    Salma looks beautiful & I like the dress, but she was knocking herself out posing. Yes, it did look like a desperate actress from a Fellini film. The third pic is especially silly.

    It seems to me that all the Hollyweird women are killing themselves posing these days. I have just begun to notice it. Looks exhausting.

  13. JMH says:

    The vibe I got from Salma was ‘My husband is cheating on me and I want to remind him how hot I am, and how sorry he’ll be to mess this up’.

  14. Caroline says:

    I don’t like how Salma styles her body

  15. ichsi says:

    In Salma’s defense: if I looked like her I’d probably go to the supermarket posing like this XD Love the dress, love the hair, probably even like the earrings.

    I can’t put my finger on what irks me about Dockery’s dress (maybe the colour isn’t doing her complexion any favours?), but yeah, still the most appropriately dressed out of these. (Who is the Rancic person?)
