Vanessa Hudgens in Philosophy at the Elton John party: gorgeous or funny?

Vanessa Hudgens

This is our second to last Oscar fashion post of the year. I wasn’t even sure it was worth it considering these are some of the lower-tier stars who attended the Elton John party. Then I saw these photos of Vanessa Hudgens mugging it up for the cameras and knew I couldn’t resist. Vanessa is wearing a strapless Philosophy gown that shimmers in waves of bronze and gold. She’s loving the entire experience of playing up to the camera and blowing kisses. I’m almost excited for her because she is so beyond thrilled to be at this party. Does she deserve a few points for enthusiasm? Perhaps.

I’ll say this much — throw away some of the silly posturing, and this is probably the happiest I’ve seen Vanessa look in her post-Disney years. That dress is tight, but she’s not showing off any private parts. Her hair is lush and wavy. Her makeup is a mess, but she loves it. I still want to say, “Girl, settle down. You’re only at the Elton party.”

Rumer Willis

Rumer Willis seems to realize exactly where she’s at and carries no illusions of grandeur. She’s posing for photos but not pushing herself into the camera. Rumer is wearing a Felja gown. Her body is slammin’ as usual. The hair color is a bit off, but I’m pretty sure that’s for a role. I urge you to be nice to Rumer once again. She’s quietly trying to make it on her own, and she’s not nearly as embarrassing in public as her own mother is.


Heidi Klum wore an Atelier Versace gown with a mermaid shape and her rack pushed to the sky. She accessorized with an updo and an air of desperation. Oh Heidi. Take your bodyguard back.

Sheryl Crow looked pretty fantastic in this red strapless gown. I don’t have an ID, but the dress is great and age-appropriate. Not that you’d be able to tell she’s 52 years old.

Karolina Kurkova wore a white Elie Saab mess. This designer is so hit-and-miss, and this look is a big “no.”

    pretty much all dreadful. vanessa looks like she’s about to lose that dress to gravity.

    something nice: heidi looks ok. that’s all i’ve got.

  2. Kiddo says:

    I’m not seeing what’s wrong with Rumor’s hair. The color makes her eyes pop. She’s looking pretty these days. Don’t love the gown, but have seen much worse in the metallic genre.

  3. Hubbahun says:

    I have to say, Rumer looks very pretty here.

  4. Ice Queen says:

    Rumer is very pretty. Gorgeous eyes.

  5. lucy2 says:

    Vanessa looks really tacky, all that matching jewelry and claws/nails and the dress that looks like it’s falling off her.
    Heidi and Sheryl look nice, and Rumer isn’t too bad, but the rest are a mess.

      I agree about Vanessa’s nails, but I think she looked gorgeous overall. Much better dress than poor Rumer. Love the fabric, and it is well constructed. And I love the snake rings… and she has one of those locking Cartier bracelets! I bet her cute little boyfy has the key. I so want one of those…

      Heidi’s dress is one of the classiest I’ve ever seen on her. Which, I admit, is not saying much.

      Karolina… ugh. This lace/sheer trend has to go.

  6. Cleveland Girl says:

    The only one who looks desperate here is Karolina. WTF??

  7. Lark says:

    I don’t mind Rumer. Seriously. She obviously benefits from nepotism, but she’s still hustling out there and booking steady lower tier work on a regular basis. She’s grown into her looks too (although I think she may have had her jaw shaved, I don’t think she had any other major work done).

  8. Ellie says:

    All look a bit tacky to me.

    I’ve read a few blinds about Rumer being a diva on set. They might be BS obviously, but her ‘fame’ does seem to come from her name rather than her body of work at this point.

    Karolina Kurkova looks like one of my nightmares when I go to the office in my grandmother’s underwear (am I more embarrassed that I’m in underwear or that it’s granny underwear?) and have to grab a tablecloth to cover it up. Oh no! You can see through the tablecloth!

  10. poppy says:

    who’s that hiding behind grandma’s curtain?
    VH’s nails are heinously long.

  11. Emma says:

    Off topic but what happened to Ashley Tisdale and Zac Efron? Out of all HS Musical set Zac and Ashley were the big stars and Vanessa was an afterthought. Do respect Vanessa’s hustle.

  12. Branvoyage says:

    This is the most beautiful I’ve seen Rumer. Great hair and gorgeous skin. And Sheryl Crow looks fantastic!!!!! Finally someone who didn’t get on the Botox/filler bandwagon. So tired of the alien look

  13. pnichols says:

    It’s me I’m sure, but what is with the point looong nails in gold and all the rings. It looks cheap. Me no likey. Rumor looks great though!

  14. Dawn says:

    They all looked cheap and like hustlers except for Cheryl Crowe. Yuk.

  15. kimbers says:

    I think she is uber talented and would shine in dark indie roles, but in the press she always seems kinda drunk or cracked out?????

  16. taxi says:

    Hudgen’s fishtail is pretty but the boob-fit is bad. Or it’s slipping down. Rumer also had a nose job, thinner than before. Or as Oprah said about her nose when it changed, “Weight loss.”

  17. wonderwoman21 says:

    Dang Vanessa Hudgen’s makeup looks greasy

  18. Alexa says:

    I think Rumer looks gorge . . . LOVE HER HAIR! And whaddup with Sheryl Crow and her SUPERNATURAL beauty – she appears to be reverse-aging? INSANE!

  19. aurelia says:

    Rumer looks the best I have ever seen her. If it wasn’t for the 80′s slash cut outs on the dress then it would have been total perfection. Love the fabric!

  20. Serene says:

    Rumer looks really pretty in these pics. And I love her gown….I think it’s beautiful! Even her hair and makeup is agreeing with me.

    Best she’s ever looked!
