Sandra Bullock in Peter Pilotto at the People’s Choice: lovely or too casual?

Sandra Bullock was probably the biggest name at last night’s People’s Choice Awards. When they were announcing the nominees for Favorite Movie Actress, which Sandy won, I was struck by all the actresses who weren’t there. Also nominated in that category were Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Melissa McCarthy, and Scarlett Johansson. The only other nominated actress who showed up was McCarthy, which worked out well when Bullock and McCarthy won Favorite Comedic Movie for The Heat. That reminds me of when Jennifer Aniston seemed drunk at the PCAs. Good times.


As we’ve come to expect, Bullock’s acceptance speech was funny and heartfelt. You get the sense that she’s extremely skilled at speaking off the cuff, and that she’s very gracious. She thanked her son, Louis, “for letting me come out tonight,” and then added that she won awards “because people work a lot harder than mommy to make her look good.” That was sweet! (You can see videos of the acceptance speeches and hosting moments here.)

In terms of Bullock’s fashion, I really liked her Peter Pilotto dress on camera. In these pictures, I’m not so sure. The dress hugged her incredible figure and it was a nice balance between casual and formal. It looked a little too “sundressy” to me on camera at first, but the cool asymmetric hemline made up for it. Plus it’s the People’s Choice Awards, it’s not the Oscars. Also, I love her makeup and hair, especially because she switched it up instead of doing a flat iron look.


Next up we have one of the night’s co-hosts, Kat Dennings, in David Meister. (This reminds me to apologize that we don’t have photos of Melissa McCarthy, since Meister is her favorite designer.) The dress is a little too “prom” for me with the very typical strapless top, floral print and full skirt. I do like her styling, she’s so pretty. This was one of her red carpet outfits, Dennings changed multiple times during the ceremony. My favorite of Denning’s multiple changes last night was her first dress, a bright blue Oliver Tolentino. You can see that here.



Here’s Denning’s Two Broke Girls co-star and co-host last night, Beth Behrs. She’s wearing Giulietta on the red carpet. Behrs’ dresses during the ceremony were very girly and forgettable, although they all made her look gorgeous. This dress was a little better than the clingy, glittery dresses she wore while hosting.


As for how these two did hosting the ceremony, I was pleasantly surprised. The opening bit, which took place on the set of Two Broke Girls, went on too long, but they had some humorous moments throughout. The standout moment was when Dennings read some made-up tweet requests for songs for Behrs to sing on stage. Behrs was game and did versions of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats,” and Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” They had great rapport and riffed off each other. At one point Dennings said “You’re Hathaway, I’m Franco.” They were much better than those two, but that bar is set incredibly low. Here’s their last gown change of the night, below.



Finally we have Nina Dobrev in black and silver sequined Jenny Packham. In photos this dress looks conservative although on camera it stood out and fit her like a glove. I love to see Nina’s fashion game. Something negative: I don’t like her hair piled up on top of her hear like that, it looks weird.



Nina and her Vampire Diaries co-star, Ian Somerhalder, gave one of the best speeches last night. (Excepting Jennifer Hudson, which we’ll get to in a moment.) When they won for Best On Screen Chemistry, they addressed how their real-life dating life paralleled their characters, until they broke up in real life. They said, in turn, “we started dating on the show, we started dating in real life, and then we broke up in real life, and yet our characters were still dating on the show. It’s a good thing it’s not awkward.” Then they looked at each other like it was awkward. It was cute, with Ian even kissing Nina on the cheek afterwards. I get the sense that it’s not “over” yet for them, we heard that they were back together before the holidays!

Bonus Ian looking a little d-baggy with that facial hair and smirk.

    Sandra looks beautiful, and the colours are great for her…

  2. PunkyMomma says:

    Love Sandra’s dress. Absolutely love.

    • Kosmos says:

      Definitely!! She’s NOT too casual, if you notice the detailing at the bottom of the dress. Sandra is one of my favorite actresses, and always will be. She’s also not full of herself and seems to be a good person all around. She’s always dressed well and I love her spirit and all of her movies.

  3. Dani2 says:

    Sandra looks so beautiful and so happy, I’m just so happy for her. And I think the ladies in it’s post did an overall better job than the ladies in the other posts – I quite like most of these dresses and the overall looks.

  4. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I heard that the only people who show up at this awards show are the people who know they’re going to win. I don’t know how true that is–but I think it’s plausible, being that no one else showed up in her category.

    My friend LOVES Ian Somerhalder–I think he looks like a creepy serial killer (and not in a good way a la Ralph Fiennes), but she loves him (and the show).

    I am jealous of Kat’s boobs–God.

    • Kim1 says:

      That’s true PCA winners are notified before the show.I learned that about ten years ago.

    • littlestar says:

      I totally believe that! I talked to my parents on the phone last night and they were watching the Peoples Choice Awards and said that Sandra Bullock was there. I asked, “Did she win?” And they said yes. Big surprise lol. I think this is mostly a good time fun show, and there is nothing wrong with that – at least it is less stuffy than the Oscars! And there seemed to be only a few fashion misses last night as well, so maybe that’s because there was less pressure on everyone to wear that “unforgettable” dress.

  5. Sullivan says:

    Sandra is beautiful, intelligent, funny, and charming. She seems like a genuinely kind and decent human being. I’m ok with her as America’s Sweetheart. I like my sweethearts to have all of the aforementioned qualities.

  6. BendyWindy says:

    I, too, was pleasantly surprised by the hosting. I thought they did great. My favorite Kat Dennings look was the black jumpsuit.

  7. V4Real says:

    I will admitt IMO the two broke girls did a good job hosting. I love the intro of celebs sitting in a diner odering voting categories instead of food. That was clever thinking.

    I’m in love with Ian’s eyes.

  8. blue marie says:

    Sandra’s got great legs, she looks good here.
    Unless Dennings is standing next to Behrs, I have no idea who she is.. And I watch their show, so that’s kinda sad.

  9. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Kat Dennings is so stunning to me. She has a really different look, not typical Hollywood in any way, shape, or form.

    • Kiddo says:

      Her appearance seems to be a throw back to the darker beauties of yesteryear.

      I don’t like the white band on Sandy’s dress, but this is a VAST improvement over the last one.

  10. Celeste says:

    Sandra looked awesome. Those Broke Girls were lame.

  11. Sabrina says:

    Sandra Bullock looks great. I think that was a good dress choice for the PCA’s.

    The winners of the PCA’s do know ahead of time if they’ve won that’s why so many of the winners are there.

  12. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I’m not crazy about Sandra’s dress but she looks good in it and it hits the right note – it’s probably a fine fashion line to strike, turn up in anything too formal and you look try hard. Kat looks amazing in all her outfits, love the black one at the end esp. Beth looks fine, basically dressing like her character – short skirts, skinny girl, yawn. I need to see a clip of Ian and Nina – total Delena shipper. He’s adorable, I forgive the jeans. Not nuts about Nina’s dress but she looks good in anything, even a clingy, borderline matronly midi!

  13. Jackson says:

    I like Sandra’s look here so much better than her standard pale or bright red lips and flat-ironed hair. I’m thinking she had a little something something extra done to her face though, or perhaps she eased up on the botox a little. Not sure, but something is different about her face. It works for her, but a definite change.

  14. Skalula says:

    I don’t know who any of these people are ( showing my age) but the sultry brunette and bubbly looking blonde, side by side, remind me of Veronica and Betty ( again showing my age).

  15. Skalula says:

    Oh, actually, I do know who Sandra Bullock is…not totally out of touch!

  16. sundaygal says:

    Sandy never ages! Dayum!

  17. Nicolette says:

    Not a big fan of Sandra’s dress, but love her. She seems to be one of the nicest people in Hollywood. Kat looks good, and I really like Beth’s second dress.

  18. Dani says:

    I’m not a fan of Kat Dennings. I can’t really figure out why. 2 Broke Girls rubs me the wrong way. I feel like her styling is ALWAYS about her boobs. She has a pretty face, I feel like she could do so much more besides the boobs on display red lipstick game.

    • Kiddo says:

      Two Broke Girls absolutely sucks.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      Kat Denning bugs the crap out of me, too. I think part of it is she seems to have ‘resting bitch face.’ It makes her look like she’s bored and over it all the time. And I refuse to watch 2 Broke Girls–every single commercial I’ve ever seen is Denning’s character talking about what a slut she is.

  19. lucy2 says:

    I like all the fashion in this post, especially Nina’s.

  20. umyeah says:

    Sandra looks great. Love her whole look. I don’t know why the two broke girls hosted. That show is awful. Horrible jokes. Vapid writing. Not funny.

  21. CeltLady says:

    I love Sandra. She is a class act, she is never full of herself, and she obviously loves her little guy more than life itself. Loved her acceptance speech. Very endearing.

    Hollywood needs more talented, nice and down to earth people like Sandra, but then the tabloids would go out of business.

  22. Isabelle says:

    Sandra looks relaxed and pretty. I envy her legs, wish she should share how she keeps them in shape.
