Maria Bello in Kaufmanfranco: one of the best-dressed of the night?


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.

    I was waiting for her (just mentioned that on the Claire Daines post).

    My favourite by far. She looks stunning in that dress — front and (what a) back!

    Maria Bello is stunning.

    As for the blond Charlies Angel, I think when women are so skinny, their boobs look like pecs (not a small boob dig, but a so little fat on them you can see their ribs through the boob dig), it looks horrible.

    Annie Ilonzeh’s dress is gorgeous! I like Minka’s as well, but it is a tad too doily-ish.

  4. Sara says:

    She looks beautiful! Love that dress!

  5. lucy2 says:

    I like it, but don’t love it. I think it might grow on me though, the more I see photos of it.
    I hated Minka’s dress. She’s so pretty, why pick something so matronly?
    Love the other girl’s dress but I agree about the headband thing.

    Nice to see Rachael Taylor looking good and moving on with her career after the hell she’s been through.

  7. Cheyenne says:

    Love Bello’s dress! Absolutely gorgeous.

    Like Ilonzeh’s dress also. Great color.

  8. JaneWonderfalls says:

    I think she looks lovely, I can’t say she was one of the best dress but she looks fabulous.

  9. Boo says:

    They all look pretty fabulous. I also thought Martha Plimpton looked amazing. well, her dress..I don’t think I got a good glimpse of hair/makeup.

  10. NeNe says:

    Wow! She looks smokin’ hot!!!!!

  11. clare says:

    Maria Bello looks fantastic!
    I loved the Prime Suspect series with Helen Mirren. I have to get my mind wrapped around a remake of an already great series. Maria is such a good actress. – I hope this ends well.

    OMG…I saw Maria’s dress and thought she was in a beauty pageant…could you please add some more beads, rhinestones, and crystals to that dress…TOTAL pageant dress.

    Can we mention here about how awful Drew Barrymore’s dress was when she went up stage with the new Angels? It was a sweater-fringe-see through bottom combo in a vomit colour. Uck.

    Annie’s whole look courtesy of Claire Huxtable’s wardrobe. 😀

    I’m glad Minka isn’t going the Blake route. Please, I can’t believe you’re disappointed. And I like the classier look here. She’s got more tell sell than T&A; on the other hand, I’m not sure that Blake does.

  16. Samgirl says:

    She is definitely stunning. She dressed appropriately for her age, and the dress looks amazing on her. However, my vote for best of the night goes to Jennifer Carpenter. I really don’t care for her style or acting, but she was showing Michael C. Hall what he is missing last night! She was incredibly sexy, but without being skanky. I think she deserves her own post!

  17. Catherine says:

    Maria Bello just glows in that dress. Love it!

  18. Kim says:

    Pretty but the hair is a mess.

  19. crtb says:

    Maria has a great body and the dress looks great on her. However I don’t really care for the dress much.

  20. Nikki Girl says:

    Bello’s hair looks sloppy, she should have gone with a nice up-do. Not sure what Minka Kelly is doing- she’s absolutely gorgeous, she could have been stunning with the right dress.

  21. Amy says:

    I don’t care much for her gown, but I think Rachael Taylor is so beautiful. And I don’t even like blondes…generally.
