We’re covering some of the people at the various post Globes parties today. I wanted to include Krysten Ritter at the top here because she’s really growing on me. Krysten is wearing a crimson Osman gown with a very high leg slit accentuated by bizarre buttons. Buttons notwithstanding, this is a perfect party dress and she paired it with matching lips. Work!
Jaime King is only a smidgeon less try hard than she was at the Art of Elysium gala over the weekend. At least she does try. She’s in Monse and this gown would be cool with either just the sleeves and a short skirt or that long sheer skirt and no sleeves. It’s like the top and bottom are competing. She needs to tone down the makeup.
Gillian Anderson was in Burberry, which is kind of sad because this gown is doing her no favors. It’s got tulle tiers at the bottom, a too-deep v-neck that makes her girls look very fake, and a thick black lace belt. Plus the color is awful. Anderson spoke to InStyle about her character, Dana Scully’s style on the X-Files reboot. She talked about Dana’s kind of “demure,” “classic” wardrobe. I remember her suit outfits well. X-Files returns on January 24!
Kat Graham wore this Yanina Couture gown which has the same plunging neckline problem as Gillian Anderson. She’s been wearing some great dresses lately and this is not bad, it’s just not up to her usual level of fashion.
Nikki Reed is in Naeem Khan. You can see a better version of the dress here. It’s a great awards ceremony gown and I love the detail but it looks a little formal for the parties.
Finally Selena Gomez was in this boho white off the shoulder J. Mendel gown. Her hair and makeup are so pretty and there’s something sweet and innocent about this look, which is probably what she was going for.

Not up to her usual level of fashion? Kat Graham has horrible taste. She usually looks awful, so this actually looks decent for her.
And yes, Jaime’s dress would look much better as a mini, the skirt just doesn’t fir in. Her haircolour is really nice, much better than the blonde she had before.
Almost everyone looked bad at this show.
It was shocking how bad the fashion — and the hair — was.
Kat Graham is stunning.
Yeah, super beautiful. Just like her co-star Ian Somerhalder (whose wife’s dress I really like). I don’t get why they havent hooked up on the show yet, they are by far the hottest ones and have great chemistry!
She’s amazing!!!!! AND I’m also WAITING for Bonnie+Damon thing to happen, they have crazy chemistry.
And she is beautiful, she takes risks on the red carpet and with her music… i just wished she had better management. She has the talent.
So happy to find two fellow Bamon shippers. Yay!
I like Krysten’s dress. The slit paired with the high neckline is classic and the colour is great on her.
I really like it too. A simple silhouette without going crazy.
And Jaimie is giving me homicidal clown on holiday vibes. Absolutely horrendous.
I love the buttons, too.
+1 Krysten’s dress is the best one here. Nikki’s Reed is 2nd.
Oh Gillian, no! How can such a beautiful woman manage to look so awful?!
I agree. The color, the fit – so unflattering.
Yeah. It’s a rare miss for her.
Yes-she’s so washed out too-awful color with her hair and her makeup.
She looks like a Champaign fountain…. Bring the neckline up and tweak the color and it might have worked
I know! How did they manage to make her look … not very good? Even her make up, geez.
She needs to have whomever styled her for Hannibal style her for awards shows, because her hair, makeup and clothes in Hannibal were amazing. I think this hair colour washes her out, especially with the dress. A darker hair colour would have been stunning with the dress, but this dishwater colour does nothing for her.
My favorite is Nikki Reed. I love that fabric so much, and it’s a little different from the usual.
A lot of people assume they look good in white or beige or gold and it really does nothing for them.
Yes, I love it. Selena looks pretty, too.
Me too. I love it!
Selena Gomez just gave me a flashback to 1970s Crystal Gayle. With shorter hair of course. So, yikes.
I always love Krysten’s style. Ilaria Urbinati is doing such a fantastic job with her.
Jamie King looks like a female Beetlejuice.
Yes, my first thought was Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!
I hate circus tent chic,Jaime.Everyone else looks lovely. Want that Khan gown to wear when I go to…um…Whole Foods.That’s the most exciting place I go.Now I’m sad.
Krysten’s beautiful, she looks great. I love her in Jessica Jones!
She’s so stunning and she often picks great outfits.
krysten ritter is working her dark arm hair. this makes me happy b/c i have translucent skin and dark hair…on my head…arms…face….and am perplexed how in every photo of me my arm hair is front and center and celebrities never seem to have it. thank you krysten ritter for not waxing your arms. they are perfect.
I noticed this too. Mine is blonde, and I am self conscious of it. I feel like the only person with arm hair sometimes!
We took our daughter to Disney World a few years ago, and one of the princesses had dark arm hair, and I had your same reaction. It’s funny, we don’t realize how much all of these crazy beauty standards affect us until we feel free of them.
I didn’t notice it at all! Just goes to show that things we might focus on about ourselves that we think everyone sees/judges (for me its my thicker thighs), maybe no one else is noticing at all!
Krysten looks fabulous, now where in all that’s holy is David Tennant?
Has anyone watched “Jessica Jones”? I watched the first episode and it was really dark. I’m debating as whether to give it a chance to grow on me.
I’ve only seen the first episode as well but fully intend on watching it. It’s got a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Everything I’ve heard about it has been over the top positive. But I do tend to like darker television series and films.
It’s very good, but very dark.
I could barely get through the first one. We watched about 5 minutes of the second episode and I told dh, “I’m done.” No-WAY too dark for me.
My husband and I have watched 8 out of 13 episodes so far. I looooove it overall especially the last couple of episodes we have watched. It is dark but I think the first couple of episodes are even darker (in tone and also literally, cinematically) than the rest.
I have, I loved it. It is slightly dark, and gets a TAD bit darker as the season goes progresses, it’s really good.
It’s very good, but yes, it is NOT an easy watch in some parts. I can see why some of my friends were warned to avoid it if they had a history of domestic violence. They have a fair amount of women involved in the production process, though, which I think has helped offset the darker implications of the story because it’s handled with compassion and realism.
I found it engaging up to and including the “shacking up with Killgrave” episode and then I was done. The central problem of the show for me is that Jones is so two-dimensional: a thirtysomething petulant teenager with a drinking problem, a Lizbeth Salander-lite. Whereas Killgrave, who does heinous things and is supposed to be the villain of the piece, comes across intelligent, winsome and charming. It was disturbing to find myself rooting for him.
Some might argue this plays into the plot, but I don’t believe it. It’s merely a failure on the show’s part to recognize and adjust for the huge difference between the talent and sophistication of Tennant and Ritter (whom I’ve seen in other things: she wisecracks like a 1940s movie dame but that’s all she does, with shading of comedy or pathos). By comparison, Rachael Taylor’s character, who wrestles with many of the same issues and has to contend with similar problems, comes across as a well-rounded, complex grown woman.
The show is very watchable up to a point, but yes, I agree with the posters who mention that even though the show isn’t exploitative or graphic (I find Law and Order SVU more upsetting in this regard), it could very well be triggering with regard to physically/psyhologically abusive situations.
Krysten is such a beautiful woman. Love her and she looks great.
Jaime facially looks like what I would expect Emma Stone to look like in her 40’s. Which isn’t a bad look at all, actually. Dress is shapeless and ugly.
Selena looks great in that, I think. She’s got a really angelic and cute face, and it accentuates that.
It’s a tad boring, but the red is a great color for her features. Beyond that, I’ll state that she’s excellent on “Jessica Jones.”
Dear Krysten Ritter,
Hi. I watched a few episodes of your show. You’re a good actor and the script is good. As you likely know, you are very beautiful – classically and uniquely. Now, could you please work out? Yes, your character’s strength comes from supernatural powers. But it is still hard to buy you in that role when you aren’t any more tone than the average woman your age. I’m sure there will be lots of people who, if they bother reading this, will write to tell me how I’m skinny girl shaming you or some nonsense. But the truth is, you need to adopt Linda Hamilton as your gym spirit animal and tone up if you want to sell the role.
In her case, I don’t know if she should work out. Jessica doesn’t take very good care of herself. She’s an alcoholic. She doesn’t appear to shower on a regular basis and never changes her outfit. I think it makes sense that she doesn’t look super buff. That said, I have felt the same sentiment you have when watching Angelina Jolie in “Salt” and Zoe Saldana in “Columbiana.” It’s hard to buy waifish women as action heroes, but Krysten doesn’t look as frail as they do.
She should work out. Her character should be supernaturally fit.
I thought about this, but I actually think her build works for the show. Along with the lighting choices, it lends a kind of cold gauntness to her, which gives you a sense of how damaged and haunted she is by the past.
Selena’s dress looks a size too big for her. It’s wearing her instead of the other way around.
The Naeem Khan dress is amazing!
Yes! Jessica Jones! Hope they do a Season 2. It was a wonderful series which took an honest look at some touchy topics!
Love Jessica Jones! More Krysten on Celebitchy please!!!
