Dakota Johnson in red Saint Laurent at the Oscars: lovely or Valentine-y?

Dakota Johnson

Dakota Johnson and Melanie Griffith walked the red carpet at last night’s Oscars. Their joint appearance echoed their 2000 mother-daughter date, and it was nice that mom showed up to support her starlet daughter. Things got a little messy. When asked about FSOG, the two ladies snapped at each other. To be fair, it was a dumb question. Melanie didn’t want to talk about her daughter in a sex-ay movie, but yeah. There’s some friction.

Dakota’s dress was simple and beautiful. She wore a red Saint Laurent column gown with an elegant silhouette. I made fun of the jewel encrusted armpit, but that detail snazzes up an otherwise Valentine-y dress. The thigh-high slit and one-shoulder effect added extra appeal. Dakota’s persona is bland, but this dress is anything but boring. Her ponytail was quite pretty and let the dress shine. The red lipstick wasn’t too matchy.

Zoe Saldana wore a pale pink Atelier Versace gown with structuring detail around the waist. She looked tired (she has newborn twins!) but gorgeous. Her bod is curvier than usual, and the dress added to the effect. Perfection.

Zoe wore a black-and-white Prabal Gurung gown to the Vanity Fair party. The dress reminded me of a circus tent.

Rita Ora brought her American takeover in Marchesa just as I predicted. At least Rita had an overdone dress upon which to pile her drama. The midnight blue dress and fishtail hem would have been plenty enough. The gold leaves push the dress into ridiculousness. Rita performed “Grateful” from Beyond the Lights, which wasn’t terrible (unlike this dress).

Here’s what Rita wore to the Vanity Fair party. We can’t show you the side or back view, but her tush was on full display.

Gina Rodriguez wore a blue, satiny Susy Amos Cameron dress. The color is pretty, but the fabric is wrinkly. It feels like an off-the-rack look.

    Zoe looks AMAZING. Holy crap. The photos are beautiful, but when she presented I was wowed. HER HIPS. Not to get graphic, but there are some women whose hips really spread when they have kids, and holy crap did that happen for Zoe. Her shape is INSANE.

    • Hullubaloooo says:

      I know, right! She looks so damn good with a little extra weight!

      • Nk868 says:

        Unreal. Lucky twins she’s passing those genes to. Wish the dress was strapless and maybe straight across, otherwise perfect

      • Lama Bean says:

        I’m happy Zoe wore something that highlighted her figure because it looks amazing. She and ScarJo made me do a double take, not bc they look great for someone who had just given birth, but because they flat out LOOKED GREAT.

      • Audrey says:

        She looks amazing! I hope she keeps this figure. She’s always been beautiful but damn. Stunning

    • MrsBPitt says:

      Zoe looks so much better with the curves. In my opinion, she is always too skinny (of course, so are most Hollywood women)…See, Hollywood designers, women DO NOT have to look like 12 year old boys to look gorgeous in clothes!!!!! Hooray for healthy, real looking women!!!!

    • Diana B says:

      And her breats! wow! the color was also really, really pretty against her skin. All in all, she was gorgeous.

    • Katie says:

      She does look incredible!

      • denisemich says:

        Amazing how good she looks at a normal weight. She had those babies in December like Rosamund Pike.

    • Ava says:

      I have a major girl crush on her…lol. I am also a mother of twins 😄

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      Yes thank you! This, I was waiting all morning for someone to say how WONDERFUL she looked — that dress was perfection for her!

    • Luce says:

      She looks phenomenal! I have never thought she was attractive, but she was gorgeous last night. What’s sad is that this is looked at as “extra” weight. Of course, it is compared to her typically pre-children straight frame, but she now has this idea hourglass. Hope she keeps it.

  2. LaurieH says:

    With the exception of Rita Ora, all of the women in these pictures look beautiful.

    • Nk868 says:

      A girlfriend asked me “why do I know who Rita Ora is? You read CB religiously, can you tell me?” “She dated rob kardashian and has the best PR team in the business is my best guess. I think she sang with Katy perry and was in 50 shades for 3 seconds.” Like, for real, why is she at the oscars?

      • Ginger says:

        My husband asked me who she was and I could tell him Rita Ora but nothing else. I don’t even know why she was there other than to sing?

    • atrain says:

      I think Rita looks great here. She gets a lot of hate on this site, but she’s gorgeous and is really working that dress.

      And she was at the Oscars because she was performing.

    • Kosmos says:

      I looked at all the pictures quickly, then picked out Rita Ora right away as one look that stood out, so I guess we all see things differently. With her short hair the black dress was perfect, and not too embellished. About Dakota Johnson, she seems like a spoiled child already…..she did not handle the interview well. When the interviewer saw that mother and daughter were not in agreement, she should have changed the subject right away, but she waited too long and things went downhill. I don’t find Dakota very attractive at all.

  3. Mia V. says:

    When Ryan Seacrest interviewed Dakota, I almost fell asleep, she is super boring, the dress is the only interesting thing about her.

    • Josephine says:

      I couldn’t figure out whether she was super nervous, which could be given her age, or just kinda slow. She took so long to respond to questions and then had the most simple answers. So odd.

    • Little Darling says:

      Thanks Mia, this is exactly what I experienced. So monotone, almost kind of daft.

    • Rachel says:

      I didn’t see her interview with Ryan Seacrest (because I think he’s obnoxious and can’t watch him), but it had to be better than her interview with Lara Spencer which was just a horrible moment for all of us. You could tell that was an argument they’ve had before. Dakota your mother doesn’t want to see you tied up and whipped. Accept it and move on.

    • Chrissy says:

      I saw that uncomfortable interview with Dakota and her mum. It was painful to watch and what’s worse, the interviewer introduced Melanie before Dakota, the one in the number one movie right now. I think Dakota looked a little miffed. It was totally awkward and yes, Dakota was very pretty especially her eyes but oh-so-bland.

    • Mellie says:

      Yes, listening to her is similar to watching paint dry…my God she is a bore.

    • fritanga says:

      Yeah. Five years ago Johnson had a bit part as Timberlake’s trick in The Social Nework; a year ago she was on a failed (but charming) Fox sitcom no one watched, and now because she’s in a bad but successful soft core pr0n movie, she gets to walk the red carpet at the Oscars. She should enjoy it while she can, because she’s just the flavor of the month. She doesn’t have her mom OR her dad’s spark, and theirs blew out rather fast.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        I liked that sitcom, I’m blanking on the name of it, but it was charming and she had good chemistry with the young man who played her brother. I had no idea who she was in terms of her parents until I noticed her name in the credits. I think she is talented, I have no interest in 50 shades of nonsense but I did like her on the sitcom.

  4. Birdie says:

    I saw an interview with her and Melanie on the red carpet and she came across as unlikable and over it. Can’t believe this girl has any kind of movie career with her lack of personality and talent. Nepotism for bland girls.

    EDIT: And her hair is a tragedy. Zoe on the other hand. Damn girl.

    • Brin says:

      I agree, she seemed a bit of a (boring) brat.

    • Aussie girl says:

      I saw an interview with mother daughter to and to me it come across as tense. Melanie was saying see wouldn’t see FSOG and Dakota seemed to be kind of pissed at her.

      • jwoolman says:

        Just edit a G-rated version on the computer for mom and other relatives so they can see it without the ick factor interfering. Problem solved. The software is easy today, I could even do it. If you can edit out commercials, you can edit out stuff your mom really doesn’t want to see.

      • FLORC says:

        Saw that. At the time Dakota was acting pissed at everyone. She wanted to have nothing to do with the film, promotion, and being on camera. She reminded me of how daughters get very bratty with their parents during that awkward age.

        The dress is nice. Very V-day. The hair seems out of place.

    • Josephine says:

      I didn’t think she was over it. I think she looked super nervous and kinda shell-shocked. I don’t get the nonstop hate for this girl. She seems so innocuous to me.

      • Judyk says:

        I agree w/ you. It’s refreshing to see someone who’s not a narcissist for a change, and I don’t find her remotely boring.

      • Dirty Martini says:

        I don’t get the hate either. I do find her personality kind of boring and that’s the thing–its what I like about her. We are so indoctrinated with over the top ethos in celebrities, that anyone who acts normal is “boring”. I think she is a lovely young woman to look at, I hear she was (surprising to many) actually the best thing about FSOG. So what’s the deal–we can’t appreciate her for actually having talent and being lovely in a traditional way? SMH. That’s what the Kartrashian culture has done to us.

        And while I’m on a soapbox…….her mother, an Oscar winner, gets no comments or acknowledgement because….????? I thought MG looked as lovely as I have seen her in a very long time. (Yes I know –she is botoxed and stretched to death.( But given that’s where she is…..I thought her dress, hair and makeup were stunning. ANd she owned it on the red carpet.

      • Bridget says:

        Melanie isn’t an Oscar winner. She was nominated in ’88, but never won. And I don’t think it’s Dakota ‘hate’ to say that her interviews are lacking in dazzle. The red carpet is her opportunity to sell herself, its kind of the whole point.

      • Dirty Martini says:

        @Bridget…thanks for the correction on Melanie as nominee–sorry, should have known better. But she did look fabulous 😉 The red carpet is an opportunity to sell herself, but really….she should shine on film first and foremost. Yes she does have the obligation to sell the movie, and I get your point….but I just don’t buy into it 1000%.

      • FLORC says:

        And correct again that there’s a lot of non-hate here. It’s not praise, but it’s not hate.

        And yea the carpet is to sell yourself. Even if you have no movies out currently it’s the best place to get noticed.

      • Bridget says:

        I should start by admitting I can’t stand Melanie Griffith (Don Johnson wasn’t exactly a peach either) so I would have preferred it if Dakota just did her interview solo. But as much as she gets flak for being a bit ‘blah’ in her press, I think she’s been pretty roundly praised for her work in 50 Shades. I’d just like to see a little more sparkle from her. The Oscars red carpet is a great opportunity to be seen and get her name out, she was wearing custom Saint Laurant, and she had the chance to really knock it out of the park and instead she got stuck with her drippy mom. Like they couldnt have predicted that every interviewer was going to ask Melanie about 50SOG? Granted, they were never going to get anything witty out of Melanie.

      • norah says:

        If you see the other interviews she has done she comes across as very genuine and funny. that interview she did on the rc – why blame dakota for that – the interviewer was not interested in dakota at all but focused more on melanie which i felt was not fair. I think blaming dakota for one single interview esp since she was really very nervous – and saying that she is ‘ a spoiled brat’ etc is too excessive.

    • Cynthia says:

      Pretty much!

    • A little monster says:

      When I saw the interview with the two of them I wanted to slap Dakota. She was a total brat to her mum. Quite disrespectful, in my opinion. Young bratty women don’t realize that one day their mothers will be gone and all the ways they irritate you go poof. This girl will only have regrets if she isn’t careful.

      Even aside from that, she seems like a boring wet rag, with an ego that is growing exponentially.

  5. Miran says:

    I mean, I wouldn’t want to see my daughter in a movie like that. Not because I’d disapprove it’s just that’s not something I need to see my adult child doing. Support her, sure, but would I watch it? No. Dakota’s ‘Jesus Christ’ response was really bratty and unnecessary. Wait till you’re a mother and you’ll get it.

  6. Sassback says:

    Oh, someone’s a little jelly of their daughter. Is it a sexual movie, yes, but it’s your daughter’s big break. She’s going to be a household name. To not even have seen it-when Griffith had done some sexy roles here and there-isn’t fair. Or maybe Griffith is a little up on her high horse because her first breakout role nabbed her an Oscar nom (Working Girl?) Whatever, I think she’s a little pissy because her daughter is getting so much attention. FSoG might be shitty but it’s making a ton of money and the critics are saying that Dakota is the only watchable part of it, plus she’s doing a lot to promote it, including an SNL appearance. I don’t Dakota’s comment was bratty so much as it signals a frustration with her mom that didn’t just come out of nowhere; they probably have argued a lot about that movie. Sex or not, it’s her first big film and its secured her a name-an experienced actress like Griffith knows it’s just the business and it’s all simulated.

  7. Lucy2 says:

    Dakota stress is okay but her hair is terrible, and she is NOT good in interviews. She was dull by herself, and so awkward with her mother!
    Zoe’s is great but I dislike the color.
    Gina’s didn’t look like satin at all on TV, I was disappointed to see that it was.

  8. greenmonster says:

    That was an awkward interview. Don’t even know where to begin. I can understand if Dakota is upset that her mother hasn’t watched the movie yet and it seems like she is not planning to do so. It’s Dakota’s breakout role, of course she wants her mother to see it. And from what I heard there is not even that much Sex involved, so where is the problem?

    It doesn’t matter, how many times Melanie told her daughter how proud she is – there is always room for one more time. And how proud can you be, if you refuse to see the movie?

    But there is something else, both are lacking something… but I can’t put my finger on it. Both seem to be so boring. Is it that?

    • Megan says:

      They were both unprofessional, but Dakota is so clearly not ready for prime time. She needs to grow up.

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      I read an interview with Dakota before the film came out, in which she was quoted as saying that she had told both of her parents NOT to see 50 Shades. So now, when the interviewer asks Melanie if she has seen it and Melanie says no, Dakota suddenly turns on her. I liked her until I saw that. She got so nasty to her mother on camera that they had to bleep her, but from the look of it, after saying “You can see it,” she yelled, “Jesus Christ!” My whole impression of her changed after seeing that last night. Spoiled, ungrateful Hollywood brat. If she didn’t have a famous mother and a semifamous father, she wouldn’t even have had a shot at that role.

      Here’s a link that says Melanie is the ONLY parent or grandparent who has been supportive of Dakota’s taking this role: http://www.express.co.uk/news/showbiz/516070/Dakota-Johnson-50-Shades-of-Grey-causes-family-feud

      • Cynthia says:

        Really? she needs to grow up!

      • Lahdidahbaby says:

        …and just found link I mentioned earlier that shows Dakota earlier didn’t want them to see it: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2936860/Dakota-Johnson-says-racy-scenes-Fifty-Shades-Grey-inappropriate-parents.html

      • Jackie says:

        At this point I really think they are tired of being asked the same question. Just from following celeb news, I’ve seen them ask Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson the same question, “Are you going to see 50 shades of grey or have your parents seen the movie”? I would hate being a celebrity because people interviewers ask the same questions. I saw an interview about a month ago and Dakota said her family is supportive of her acting and this role, but they just won’t see the film, those were her words. They weren’t from a story online with unknown sources. It’s normal not to want to see your daughter or granddaughter tied to a bed. Even the lead actor’s wife doesn’t want to see the movie. Also, very normal. Maybe if the characters weren’t naked most of the movie, her parents would watch it. It’s like a catch-22. Dakota wants her mom to see the film because it’s her biggest role, but she knows it will be uncomfortable. Same for Melanie, she obviously wants to support her daughter and possibly thought about seeing the film, but knows it will be too weird

      • Jackie says:

        Here’s Dakota talking about her family being supportive,

        Did you discuss it with your parents?
        No, not before I took the role. But both my mother and grandmother are two women who have had shocking female roles and I find it interesting that my mother has done similar work. If anything, they support me completely.
        They understand that it’s acting and I’m not going to do this all the time. And my father is 100 per cent supportive, although he’s not going to see it. In fact, none of them are.

    • Santolina says:

      I don’t think Dakota knows what she wants from her mother. At one point, Melanie said, “I’ll see it when she lets me see it.” It seems like a tortured relationship. Dakota should have walked the red carpet on her own, IMO.

    • Bridget says:

      My take was that the stress of the press line got to Dakota. Since she brought her mom they were probably asked that at every single outlet and it just seemed like she snapped a bit. They should have rehearsed answers ahead of time.

      • StumpyCorgi says:

        That’s what I was thinking! I’m sure they anticipated that question. Couldn’t they have rehearsed a better reaction? I can understand being nervous, but they are both actresses! How hard would it be to pretend to be gracious for a few minutes?

  9. BRE says:

    I loved the interview with Dakota and her Melanie. It would totally be the type of tiff I would have with my mom.

    • foolish says:

      Yeah, so you make your mom feel bad on a regular basis? The difference is you aren’t tiffing in front of millions and millions of people. I’d hope you’d behave yourself if only not to look bad.
      Dakota acted like a teenager and treated her mom like crap.
      Trust me, when you Mom passes on, you will regret the fights.

  10. Dhavynia says:

    Rita Ora did put the trash stamp on the Oscars

    • QQ says:

      She Needs to speak to her colorist… This mess on her hair has happened long enough: It is NOT good for her coloring!!

    • Josephine says:

      I’ll get hate for this, but I disagree. I loved the color of the dress and I thought she looked very pretty on camera. She’s a singer – I thought the hair was great. Plus, I couldn’t help smile given that the Kardashians’ collective brain (I think there is one among all of them) must be exploding with jealousy to see her there.

  11. Marianne says:

    I loved Zoe’s dress!!! So SEXY!

  12. Bridget says:

    Dakota’s dress was nice but she didn’t really sell it. Melanie… was definitely selling it. And she’s gone full cat lady on the face work.

  13. QQ says:

    Zoe’s first dress was great

    The Ponytail fringey crap do’ made the Dakota girl’s look be corny

    Gina Is too young and pretty to look so Matronly

  14. Courtney says:

    I love Dakota’s look. The fit is incredible.

    Must be tough to have Melanie Griffith as your mother.

  15. mia girl says:

    Gina Rodriguez’s dress was made from recycled/sustainable fabric, so maybe why it has a less couture look. I though she looked so beautiful on the red carpet.

  16. smee says:

    This is the best garment I have ever seen Dakota Johnson wear – beautiful. She can look good when shot from the right angle, but straight-on she always looks like a slightly embarrassed seagull, to me.

  17. Tracy says:

    Dakota looked fine. She is sort of a bland personality (and does perhaps the worst interviews, ever), but she’s young. She looked nice, unfussy and her makeup helped reduce her downward turning eyes so she didn’t look quite so ‘Doh’ and hound dog as she usually does.

    Melanie looked better than I’ve seen her in years, not quite as embalmed as she has lately. But her bitchy Mom-attitude must just be so hurtful to her daughter! Here she is, starring in a (admittedly soft core porn) 3-movie blockbuster and her damn mother won’t even go see it. Get over it, Melanie. Ain’t like you haven’t done much worse. Time to be more supportive. Dakota’s got her whole career to put her clothes back on.

    Rita Ora has really upped her appearance game, what with the sleek hair and less-clownish makeup thee days. (Rita, never ever a red lip.). But the blue dress is ridiculous. The fishtail and train looks just silly, and this bent knee, angled pose has to stop. The black dress was fine from the front, less fine if that illusion fabric let her ass show all night , although why you’d want a train at a party, I don’t know. You spend the whole night dragging it around and pushing drunk people off it.

  18. Cara says:

    Dakota looks SO much like her dad!
    That’s about all I can muster about her.

    • noway says:

      I think she looks like her grandmother, Tippi Hedron. Look at young pictures of Tippi and Dakota looks like a brunette version of her.

      As far as Melanie and the FSOG comments. I thought this was one of the true real moments. I am sure Melanie is proud of Dakota, but I understand just like kids don’t want to think and see their parents sex lives, parents don’t want to know about their kids. Even though Melanie knows this is a job, this movie is just too close to be comfortable for a parent so I get it.

      • Miran says:

        +1 bingo

        I don’t think Melanie not wanting to see it means in any way that she’s not proud of her.

  19. Ginger says:

    I really liked Dakota’s dress but yes, now that you mention it…I can’t unsee the sparkly armpit! I saw some crazy photos of Dakota and Melanie looking like they wanted to kill each other with some deadly side eye glances. I adored Zoe’s look. She and Scarlett don’t look like they just had babies at all.

  20. scout says:

    Dakota looked absolutely beautiful (as long as she keeps posing and smiling without opening her mouth, don’t like her teeth!), her mom looked great too.

  21. vauvert says:

    Red dress – lovely! But then Dakota opens her mouth and ugh. Both boring and annoying, how does she manage that? And that hair was underwhelming. The snappy talk with her mom was appropriate for their kitchen, not the RC. But then Melanie was never that classy so…
    Zoe looked good but the dress was too busy and I think she looks better in bold, dramatic colours. Her party dress was better.
    If Rita’s dress list the fishtail I would have actually liked it, the navy and gold combo was nice but that huge fishtail just overwhelmed everything. Too much.

  22. Kiddo says:

    I am completely over Dakota.

    • Agreed says:

      I was never into it to begin with. Now she’s dirt to me.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      I feel the same, Kiddo.. I was bored by her before this all began, and then I started to like her better as a result of some late show interviews. But after seeing how she treated her mother in public, she’s just another entitled, indulged brat.

  23. L says:

    All I can see when I look at that red dress is J. Law’s red Calvin Klein dress from a few years back. And we all know J.Law did it better.

    Zoe looks fantastic.

    • Lara says:

      I really see Kate Winslets red dress that she wore. Was it Ben de Lisi??

    • Tracy says:

      That orangey-red Calvin Klein dress Jennifer Lawrence wore a few years back was a showstopper…mostly because it showed Jennifer Lawrence with nary a T nor an A showing, I still remember it as one of the best looks, and best bodies, ever.

  24. Dids says:

    Melanie Griffith was a botox nightmare. She couldn’t even move her face during her red carpet interteview!! I Never saw anything that scary….( well in the botox division 😉 )

  25. Paige says:

    How many times are interviewers going to ask both women the same question about Melanie Griffith seeing the 50 shades movie? It’s so repetitive at this point. They both seemed uncomfortable about the question, which is understandable.
    Fashion wise, I loved their dresses.

    • Tracy says:

      A million times more, is how many. So they’d do well to get together and get better answers for chrissakes.

  26. Dancinnancy says:

    Natalie Portman’s Dad walked out of Black Swan. I can understand Melanie not wanting to see her daughter in it.

    That said can we stop trying to make Dakota Johnson happen? She is awful. And there are so many people more deserving of her opportunities.

  27. Mimi says:

    Re: Dakota and Melanie- wasn’t Melanie Griffith originally interested in playing ‘mrs robinson’? She got turned down for being too old? I think she’s more upset for her own reasons than because she doesn’t want to see her daughter! Jealousy…

  28. boredblond says:

    When I saw Dakota’s dress on tv, I thought it looked like something shapeless on a hanger..little more detail here, but she still comes off as a twelve year old..she should only speak from cue cards. As far as picking on her mom, maybe she heard how bad it was..I don’t know anyone who’s seen it.

  29. Naddie says:

    When I saw Zoe, I imediatly started to see her as beautiful again. She looked PERFECT in that dress. Plus, her skin was like, made for the dress’s color. Her body is amazing.
    Loved Dakota’s look as well, the red dress and hair.

  30. Az says:

    I think Dakota has had to put up with a lot of crap from her mother over the years. I also think Melanie was told not to speak too much. All I could think of when I saw that interview was Mean Girls. “I’m not a regular mom. I’m a cool mom.”

    • Tig says:

      Yep- ️️mom/daughter dynamics writ large. Honestly, let Melanie lie and say she saw it, loved Dakota in it, and then defer more by saying “It’s HER night”- but don’t believe MG is capable of that. It does appear that she really wanted her time in the spotlight at her daughter’s expense.

      • tracking says:

        That wasn’t how I read this, though that could well be a big piece of what’s going on. Women whose main claim to fame was being the sexy young thing do tend to have a hard time letting it go. It seemed like Melanie did not want to see her daughter in a highly sexual movie, which is her right, but they kept pushing it. I also felt Melanie was trying to support Dakota and was trying not to talk or steal her spotlight either. Very awkward. Though she could have anticipated the FSOG question, and had a quip at the ready, followed by “next subject!”

    • Ridiculous says:

      So what. We all put up with crap…I’m sure Melanie was still a fierce and loving mother.
      Everything changes when a) you have kids yourself (wonder how Dakota’s kids will like seeing her in that film?) and b) when your parent grows old and passes away. Then you realize what an immature slob you have been and see all the good your parent did for you.

  31. Green Eyes says:

    50 Shades of Meh. Dakota Johnson is about as much of an actor as EL James is a writer. I guess water found its own level with this one.

  32. Cynthia says:

    Zoe is staggering with that extra weight, she looks so much better a bit curvaceous and that color looks lovely on her skin. I really, really like Dakota’s dress (I wish I could have it) but I hate the bangs!

  33. M.J. says:

    I think Dakota looked perfect. One of my faves from last night. Her bangs didn’t even bother me, for once. She just looked so good in that dress.

  34. coconut says:

    i’m glad to see melanie’s lips look normal again.

  35. I Choose Me says:

    I dig both of Zoe’s gowns. She looked fantastic.

    The red dress was really good, but I cannot bring myself to be interested in ( or like) Dakota Johnson. That mess of an interview made me cringe. She came off like a straight-up tw#t. I don’t care if she was tired or stressed or whatever. She is getting alot of help in the industry-try to work a bit for it, child. Also, that hair of hers is a mess. It appears to have dropped out of the sky and landed on her head or something. Splat. ugh.

    Zoe wins!!! Best pale dress of the night, amazing body, beautiful woman. The camera briefly shot at her husband while Jared Leto was presenting, and I thought he looked like a blonde version of him. It was funny!!

    Are we seriously not going to talk about how emaciated Dakota Johnson looked? She reminds me of Melanie’s low self-esteem years. Melanie was never classically good looking but she had a good attitude and did nude scenes that showed her less than svelte bod. Then after marrying Antonio she morphed into a Hollywood bot. Dakota jumped into the scene immediately as nothing but a sex object and she seems to be really self conscious in an unsexy way.

    Dakota vs KStew in an Interview ; Kstew wins. Dakota is just lame, boring as hell!
    Zoe’s post baby look : AMAZING!!!!!

    Love Dakota’s whole look, her make up and hair was perfection! But the best one was Zoe Saldana pale pink dress… just OMG, so stunning!! Loving her curves!

    This girl is even more awkward than Kristen Stewart.

    Zoe looks beautiful in her pink dress. I like Rita’s black dress, but not the blue one at all.

    does anyone else think melanie is oddly starting to resemble jane fonda? i wonder if they used the same surgeon?

  45. CK says:

    It looked like a typical mother-daughter tiff to me and I frankly enjoyed it. At least, it wasn’t highly staged like most of the interactions are. I actually like Dakota a bit more after this. Sure, she will see the err in her ways one day when she has kids, but hell, let her be 25.

      I agree with you plus I also think that the “snapping” came at the end of the red carpet and was very real. I saw them interviewed when they first got there and they were both ok with Melanie not watching the movie. Probably by the 100th time it was asked that night she was over the standard response.

  46. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    I love both of Zoe’s dresses. Dakota’s dress is fine, although (small nit-pick) I think the embellishment on the shoulder should have ended under her arm, or gone completely around. It looks a little (cheap? strange?) to have it truncated like that.

    Zoe looks like a goddess! So beautiful!

  48. norah says:

    i wonder what possible reason dakota has done to offend so many people right now? she took a role which was very high profile and at the end of the day it went out well – blockbuster at the end of it. I can understand if pple dont like her dress etc but for such generalisations that she is like this or like that etc – is not really very fair either. zoe was dressed very nice but the colour was boring – scarlett had a nice dress and the colour looked good but that necklace and her very short hair didnt look so nice – i think rita ora looked very nice as well.

    i think melanie griffith looked nice not as botoxed as earlier –
