Laverne Cox was one of several women in on-trend red last night. She was in this exquisitely draped Prabal Gurung gown, which looked incredible on camera. Then I saw the side view with the high thigh slit under the cape and I’m side eyeing it now. I guess it only shows when she’s pushing the skirt to the side and posing to let us see it, and I can’t decide whether it’s too superhero. She’s pulling a Jolie and doing it with humor. I love the bodice with the slight cutout leading down to the flowing gown.
Cox’s show Orange is the New Black won Outstanding Performance for Ensemble in a Comedy for the second year in a row. When Laura Prepon was accepting the award on behalf of the cast, she said “Look at this stage! This is what we talk about, when we talk about diversity! Different race, color, creed, sexual orientation.” There were plenty of noms for other actors of color, with Idris Elba taking home two awards, and both Viola Davis and Uzo Aduba winning in their categories. The SAGs made the Oscars look hopelessly out of touch.
Here’s Tina Fey, also in red Prabal Gurung, with less success. This dress has that terrible darting around the boobs which makes it look like
Dior Prada, and it’s very plain. Fey likes simple gowns, it’s just that this one isn’t that great. I like the skirt but the top is so blah.
Anna Faris really rocked this red Naeem Khan gown with a folded collar, red short sleeves and a high leg slit. Her 60s styling complete with updo complements the look perfectly. This is glamour.
Melissa Rauch was in a more orange-red Romona Keveza with an asymmetric cutout neckline and back. This is a gorgeous gown with just the right balance of classic and contemporary. I really like this look.
