Emma Watson in Peter Pilotto at the People’s Choice Awards: too weird or hot?

At last night’s People’s Choice Awards, Emma Watson took home the “favorite dramatic artist” award, beating out Charlize Theron, Keira Knightley, Meryl Streep, and Rachel McAdams, none of whom came. (Here’s a full list of winners.) Emma wore Peter Pilotto, in a style that she’s rocked successfully in the past. Go here and here to see her wearing very similar dresses on the red carpet. Emma (and/or her stylist) loves short, contemporary dresses with bold prints and architectural designs. This dress is just a step too far, though, with some very ugly cutouts along the bodice, a much too-short skirt in a cacophonous pattern, and matchy-matchy cutout shoes. Plus, her makeup looks amateurish. She often gets it right but not this time.

The lovely Julianne Hough was in a cute Tony Ward couture sequin dress. This dress is a bit cutesy with the bouncy skirt, but I do love the celestial colors and how comfortable Julianne looks. Her hair and makeup are very elegant, but fun. She just looks like she’s having a good time. I also like how her shoes don’t compete with her dress.

Cloe Moretz was somewhat shocking in a bright yellow Simone Rochas dress with a floral embroidered pattern. She looks like she took a bath in highlighter! She’s only 15 though, and at that age I also wore a lot of neon colors. (They were in!)

And finally, host Kaley Cuoco was a little too precious in Christian Siriano with matching heels. Maybe with different shoes this would have worked, but it looks a little too “bridesmaid” to me.

This is what Kaley wore to the press room red carpet, and it’s not much better. I do like her hair and makeup though.

    the green dress is lovely.thats all.

      Wait, what green dress? I see a neon dress that only works because it’s on a 15 year old. Usually Chloe dresses and works that vicious hand on thrust hip pose hard, like she’s daring us to say she’s not grown up. She’s age-appropriate here. As is Emma. The fit of the dress is off but she might as well wear these styles while she can. Her makeup is too harsh but hopefully she applied it. I’d hate to think an artist did that awful black eyeliner and pink blush.

      Julianne’s dress is too costume-y and what’s up with her hair? It’s like someone put her in a wind tunnel and sprayed it. Her makeup is great and understated, and she gets points for looking genuinely happy, but at first glance I went “yikes.”

      Kaley. Wow, some stylist sold her a bag of no-good. I think they tried to soften her sort of farm-like build (strong, sturdy) with the flouncy pink dress but it misses big time. The white dress is very Megan Fox circa 2008. Hair and makeup is great for both appearances.

      And since I judged everyone else, for the record I am rocking pajama bottoms, my husband’s t-shirt and slipper booties. My makeup is in a drawer upstairs; hair is bizarre bordering on offensive. God bless.

    Emma has a very beautiful face in my opinion but what annoys the hell out of me is how she presses her lips together in so many pictures.

    her hair looks like a mess.

    if this was something private i would like it but for professionals this is not good looking.

  3. Jess says:

    Emma can pull off a lot. I think she looks great. The others… WTF?

  4. Summer says:

    Emma’s dress is too short. Her hair is a mess. Did she do it herself?

  5. Jenny says:

    Minus the cutouts, lipstick and add an inch or 2 to the bottom and she would look good.

  6. Riana says:

    Ouch Emma…just wrong on so many levels including the hair. I like Julliane’s dress.

  7. Summer says:

    Oh and I’mma get my hair like Julianne hough. that haircut is adorable and looks good on alot of people.

  8. vixo says:

    I don’t understand why her makeup is amateurish. I’d call amateurish Lilo’s over bronzed contoured face. Emma’s is a soft, no makeup makeup with some glitter, lotsa mascara and bold lips, appropiate for her age and occasion!

  9. Ann says:

    I like Chloe’s dress, it’s fun and age appropriate. It look great on her.

    Don’t like the top of Emma’s dress, although I’m okay with the bottom. The never ending array of cutouts, sheer and lace inserts is getting tiresome. Find a new trick, designers.

  10. Suzy from Ontario says:

    She always looks too young to me …like a little kid wearing grownup clothes. I know she’s a grownup but she just doesn’t look grownup to me. My husband thinks she’s really pretty but me, not so much. I think she’s cute but I honestly? I think she lucked out with the HP role. I don’t think she’s a very good actress but once she was in the role they stuck with her and now she’s rolling in money and a well known name. It’ll be interesting to see what she does in the future.

    As for the dress…I don’t like it.

    • Amanda says:

      I agree with you completely and it’s clear to me why she won this award.

    • GoodCapon says:

      To be fair though, it’s not just her. Daniel Radcliffe is only slightly better in the acting department. Rupert is better than both of them IMO.

      Anyway it’s just the sh*tty People’s Choice Awards; no wonder Charlize, Keira and especially MERYL didn’t go. They’re all heavyweights for such a rubbish awards show and I doubt they’d lose any sleep losing an award over Emma.

      • Summer says:

        Agreed. She’s got some crazy fan.The fact that she’s still in hollywood is because she has a strong fan base. And they keep on adoring every little thing that she does and watch her movies. she may not be talented but she’s goddamn lucky she gets away with everything.

  11. Marianne says:

    Celebitchy…NOBODY comes unless they win. You know the winners just by knowing who’s in the audience. My sister and I were watching and picked out EVERY single winner right just by knowing who came.

    Anyway, I’m glad she won it as Perks of Being a Wallflower is a fantastic film. I think Keira was better than her, but overall I’m still happy. Charlize Theron SUCKED in SWATH. That role consisted of her shouting everything. It was way to over the top.

    • orion70 says:

      Perks of Being a Wallflower was an amazing film, but I don’t think Emma was the best part of it.

  12. km says:

    For a second I thought that last picture of Kaley was Christina Applegate from her ‘married with children’ days.

  13. GoodCapon says:

    Oh God that red lipstick.

  14. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    I think the dress is cool and different, not ugly and weird. The upper part has unnecessary cuts though. But overall, it is a nice little dress. I would like to have this dress in my wardrobe. :-DD

  15. BooBooLaRue says:

    Again FUG FUG FUG

  16. Diana says:

    I don’t think Emma pulls off most of her looks and this ona was no exception. I do love Kaley though.

  17. j.eyre says:

    I don’t like Emma’s look but its not horrible, just not right.

    I like Julianne dress but I am not really excited about how it looks on her.

    Chloe, I think, looks adorable and I agree, her age allows for that color.

    I actually like Kaley’s first dress. I am not crazy about the shoes with it (or the dark toenail polish with a light shoe) but the dress I like. It is sexy but the sheer drape across is clever and makes the bust-line more interesting. The bottom half could have been better but overall, it’s OK.

  18. Angie says:

    I don’t know why but I irrationally disliked her in the past, I think it’s because I didn’t like her acting in the Harry Potter serie, and I adored the books and Hermione but she is not the best actress (she was a lot better in perks, so she is improving). And also she has sometimes a cocky, smirky smile and she seemed a little posh or pretentious to me.

    But now, I kind of love her, I think she is super cute, and she was adorable at the people choice award.
    I usually love her style but this dress is not my taste but she is young and she is experimenting. At least she is interesting in her choice, she doesn’t wear boring cocktail or bandage dresses on the red carpet. Not the best makeup, some people find her bland but I think she is a very pretty girl. She seems a little boring but lovely, I kinda root for her now.

  19. KellyinSeattle says:

    Many beautiful women in these photos, not so many beautiful outfits.

  20. meh says:

    So…Kaley got a boob job, then?

  21. dcypher1 says:

    I like the white dress kaleys wearing and her hair and makeup looks pretty.

  22. Loulou says:

    Julianne Hough’s nipples are showing or else she’d come remotely close to being somewhat well dressed in a crowd of really ugly outfits.

  23. kitty bye says:

    I can’t really see all of it but the beading is cute, the band at the bottom of the skirt & fluffy bits at the bottom of the shirt is overkill however.

  24. Nellon says:

    No. Just no.
    Too much on the face and too much on the dress. The hair is okay but overall is bad….
