Kerry Washington in lace Dolce & Gabbana at the Globes: doily or pretty?


Don’t hate me, but I really disliked Kerry Washington’s Golden Globes look. The thing about it is that it looked so bad on-camera and in motion, although I have to admit that it looks a lot cuter in these photos. Kerry wore this Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress, which made her seem a tad underdressed. I’m not saying every woman has to wear a full-on gown, but this just didn’t feel dressy enough for the Globes. Plus, the color was awful!



Felicity Jones just has the worst stylist, or her stylist hates her, or Felicity just has fundamentally terrible taste. I can’t tell what it is. She wore Gucci and it’s the worst.


Real talk: I would not have hated Zoe Saldana’s ruffled Gucci if it was all one color. Like, choose between the pink and the red, make it all that color and the dress would have been so much cuter.


Angela Bassett wore Christian Siriano. I’m not a fan of this dress, but she looked like she was having a great time, and you could tell that she liked the dress, which made it work.


Issa Rae also wore Christian Siriano, perhaps because Christian is one of the few woke designers who will consistently dress A) women of color and B) women who are slightly larger than a size 2. Issa was nominated last night! And she looked beautiful.

    I would have loved Kerry’s dress if it was longer

  3. OriginallyBlue says:

    Kerry consistently has bad style. Can’t remember her last outfit that I liked.

    • Carmen says:

      I’ve been saying for years that whoever dresses Olivia Pope should dress Kerry Washington. Her style on the red carpet is godawful.

      And her lipstick is way too dark. It ages her about ten years.

      • lucy2 says:

        I say the same. Her clothes on the show are to die for. Her red carpet choices are terrible, and she’s so pretty and poised, it’s a shame.

      • Snazzy says:

        Yes, the first thing I noticed was the lipstick too! Way too dark, doesn’t suit her at all

  4. trollontheloose says:

    This is so awful. awful gold, awful design.. no designer proud to be called a designer will show this anytime anywhere. Who’s the culprit?

  5. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    Issa gets straight 10s from the judges. She is the best of this bunch

    I don’t hate you Kaiser. I agree; this is a bad dress. She is another one who consistently chooses terrible dresses. Her shoes look cheap, too.

    Her makeup is awesome, though.

    Angela and Zoe’s dresses are not offensive, just meh. Faces again look fantastic.

    Someone said Kerry’s dress is a Ferraro Rocher…cannot un-see!

    Felicity…stop, please. However she wins for this photo with Diego:

    I mean…DAMN. That’s some serious pretty.

      I love Felicity and Diego’s GG portrait, they look like they’ve put a pause on eyefucking each other and are about to go back to it the second the pic is done.

      (yes I am a Jyn/Cassian shipper, can anyone tell?)

  7. sage says:

    Angela Bassett looked gorgeous.

  8. Ashamed 2 b a Fl girl says:

    Love Issa Rae’s look, all of it, stunning!!!!

  9. Chinoiserie says:

    I kind of like Felicity’s top and bottom a bit but not for this occasion and they don’t fit together at all. And hate the bow. Same for Kerry but it is better with all aspects, it does not quiet work however either.

  10. Nicole says:

    Siriano for the win again

  11. Slowsnow says:

    Issa Rae looks stunning. Perfect. From the magnificent hair to the sculptural dress. And without showing any skin, she looks sexy as hell. Wow.

  12. Lucy says:

    Angela always looks so…regal. And Kerry and Felicity deserve better.

  13. lucy2 says:

    Love Issa’s, dislike the rest.

  14. QQ says:

    Issa Looks like a Dope Angel!.. Angela In This Color F*ck Yeah!!! Zoe looks like …. well.. Um Cute on top the bottom looks like Shark Week Rags

    Felicity’s Fashion choices STAY the definition of Floppy Like.. That dress is just sad

    I Honestly loved Kerry’s Dress she looked so cute and happy and just chilled

  15. hey-ya says:

    …yo peeps..Kerrys frock came from the same collection as Melanias Mar a Lago effort the other night…nothing wrong with it at all…

  16. eto says:

    Idk something about Felicia’s mouth has always low-key annoyed me.

    Also, Issa looks amazing! Kerry’s dress is unfortunate but her above the shoulders is perfection.

    • susiecue says:

      I said the same about Felicity’s mouth! I know she can’t help it. But smile with your teeth or something! Always that smuggish “over it” expression. ((((But I love Rogue One))))

    • Marny says:

      She has an overbite! I love her. Have you seen Like Crazy?

  17. Llamas says:

    Wait, do most designers not dress people above a size 2?!?!

  18. I Choose Me says:

    Here for Angela Bassett.

  19. Tallia says:

    Kim Kartrashian Vibes.

  20. Iris says:

    Go Issa!

  21. susiecue says:

    Kerry’s dress is HORRID.

    Felicity Jones is so beautiful, and I know it’s partially just the way her mouth is, but she always has this “whatever” kind of expression that annoys me.

    Issa is hands down my favorite look! I love the white, the style of the dress, and her hair rocks! She’s so cute!!

  22. detritus says:

    Kerry and Jessica Chastain need to attend remedial fashion classes together.

  23. ashley says:

    I actually thought that in motion, Kerry’s dress looked killer. She looked so happy and was so charming in it on the red carpet. I think it loses some of its awesome architecture and the structure of it isn’t quite as striking in the photos.

  24. serena says:

    Holy awfulness! Felicity Jones’ and Zoe Saldana’s dresses were just utterly awful, nothing can be said to save their looks. And it’s a shame since they’re both beautiful women -who clearly can’t dress-.

  25. Lama Bean says:

    Issa looks flawless.
    Love Angela’s dress. Love Angela. But her face is getting a bit out of control.

  26. LaDiabla says:

    Angela looks great. Issa looks amazing. I actually think Zoe pulls off this dress. Felicity…oh God…no. Who the hell is doing this to her? She’s so pretty…oh honey, if you’re choosing these dresses, bless your heart.

    I want to like Kerry’s dress…maybe if the hem didn’t stop short at her ankles and was cut differently…I don’t know, I’d have to see a side-by-side comparison. The shoes are wrong, but I thought her makeup and hair were flawless. So jealous of these women whose skin just glows like that –cause she is totally glowing in these pics. And no amount of creative makeup-ing is gonna do that. That’s just genetics, folks.

  27. Bridget says:

    I feel like I’m looking at a different gown than everyone, because I love Kerry’s and am so relieved it’s not another blah column. The detailing is gorgeous. Ditto Zoe’s. And Felicity’s isn’t really my cup of tea, but I really like Gucci’s whimsey with that collection. These women are never going to wear the same thing as Blake Lively or Jessica Biel, but Washington and Saldana are considered 2 of the most fashionable women on the planet for a reason.
