These are just some extra ladies that maybe didn’t deserve their own individual posts, although they were noteworthy enough to mention here. First up: Maria Bello in Kaufmanfranco. This was actually one of my favorite dresses of the night, and I think Maria was one of the best-dressed ladies, overall. She was just there as a presenter, because she’s coming out with Prime Suspect, the American remake of the British cop show starring Helen Mirren. Maria has big shoes to fill, and I’m looking forward to seeing this series, honestly. I love this entire look – the dress, the hair, the makeup. She looks beautiful, but it’s not a showy, “LOOK AT ME” outfit, which is nice for a presenter. Also: Maria has a cute ass.
Next: Gretchen Mol in L’Wren Scott. I often wonder why more women don’t choose L’Wren for big red carpet events, because L’Wren gowns are often understated, impeccable, classic and beautiful. But maybe the problem is that if you put a classic, deceptively simple dress on someone boring like Gretchen, it just reads as a snorefest. Gretchen is just… zzzzz…..
Last: Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh, the new Charlie’s Angels. Minka is in Dior, Taylor in Armani, and Annie is in Romona Keveza. Minka lost a real opportunity to take it to the next level here – she could be “The Next Blake Lively” you know? I mean that she could be the go-to “hot girl” with a great figure who gets invited everywhere, and then starts doing movies. Instead, Minka just wore a boring old-lady dress with doily sleeves and she looked terrible. Out of all of them, I really like Annie’s dress – that’s a beautiful color on her. I could do without the headpiece thing, though.
