Julianne Moore rarely gets it right on the red carpet and usually that’s Tom Ford’s fault (or whatever collaboration she has going on with him) but last night we can blame Riccardo Tisci, assuming he’s behind this as the head of Givenchy. She was in this green Givenchy gown which was too tight around the bust and looked like the top half of little mermaid costume. All she needed was a fin and some shells in her hair. The light green metallic lines of sequins were just awful and look at the crocodile-like strip of fabric around the cutouts at the waist. How did an entire team of people let her sign off on this look? Something nice – her styling was good, especially compared to everyone else’s.
Marisa Tomei was also in green, which was one of the on trend colors last night. (See also: Uzo Aduba.) Marisa brought the 70s glamour in this Zuhair Murad gown. Kaiser liked it more than I did, I thought it looked a little dated, but overall it’s a gorgeous dress. When I first saw the gown I thought it was an allover sparkly green but there are little sequins sewn into the fabric and it must have taken so much craftsmanship.
Laura Prepon was in white Carmen Marc Valvo, and this dress had the kind of splotchy attern on the top that we saw in Saorsie Ronan’s dress. It reminded me of this Marc Bouwer dress Christina Aguilera wore last year and which we’ve also seen on Jennifer Lopez and Naomi Campbell. This splotchy trend needs to die. Laura won as part of the Best Ensemble in a Comedy, for Orange is the New Black, and she gave a shout out to diversity. You can read her quotes here.
Christina Ricci was in a peach Christopher Kane gown with a blue and pink lace top with black stitching with led to a pink skirt. The dress was bizarre and her styling was worse. Her eyemakeup was garish and overdone and her highlights were cheap looking. She looked like Taryn Manning last night. (Who did not show up to support her OITNB cast, she has some issues of her own to deal with.)
