Busy Phillips (Kim Kelly 4-eva) rocked a strapless, beaded black gown by Jeffrey Dodd at the In Style post-Golden Globes party on Sunday night. She accessorized with a Adriana Papell clutch. Although Busy’s BFF Michelle Williams brought activist Rosa Alicia Clemente as her date, the two managed to get together for an awards night selfie, which Busy captioned, “Of course we want you to come sit with us.” I would love to sit with these two, they seem like they’d be so much fun.
Busy also showcased her gown (and her sense of humor) in another Instagram post, which appears to have been taken in a hospitality tent. The 38-year-old actress acknowledged being photobombed by a safety device.
Laverne Cox, whom I also adore, looked absolutely radiant in a custom Stella Nolasco gown. I love this look – everything is perfect, from her wavy hair and flawless makeup to her subtle accessories. Her jewelry, including earrings from the House Of Gilan, Le Vian Jewelry and DVANI by A&D Gem rings, didn’t draw attention away from her face or the intricately beaded lace appliques on her bodice. And, as Laverne demonstrated on Instagram, the gown looked even better in motion.
Lea Michele, whose latest TV project, The Mayor, just got cancelled, also showed some skin, in another strapless number from Project Runway alum Christian Siriano. It kind of looks like Christian phoned this one in, because I usually like his dresses. This one isn’t bad, it just doesn’t stand out, apart from the thigh-high slit. I don’t think Tim Gunn would be thrilled with this one. Lea looks nice though. Since the bodice of the dress is so plain, wearing her wavy hair down was a good choice. She also accessorized with strappy satin and velvet sandals from Casadei and Harry Winston jewelry. I was going to give Lea a pass for this slightly uninspired, but not overly offensive ensemble until I saw her “try too much” Instagram post. Ugh.
Kathryn Hahn has played some unconventional women, so it’s no surprise (to me, at least) that she opted for something a little different. She may have rocked a cocktail length dress, but she did it with style. The 44-year-old star of Bad Moms looked lovely in the criss-crossed bodice with a small center cutout, accessorizing with a simple, strappy sandal and natural makeup,opting to wear her hair down in relaxed waves. Maybe I like this dress because I could see myself actually wearing this somewhere, or maybe I just like Kathryn. She gave some major props to Oprah at the after party. Kathryn told InStyle that Oprah’s speech “Was so beyond, and it’s no joke why I feel like she should run for president. It was the energy just coming off that screen. She’s an incredible speaker, and it felt like a seismic shift was happening. Already I feel like the tectonic plates are shifting, and that was just another huge [moment].”

That elevator bit… *cringe*
Seriously, how did she get through it herself without cringing?
I want to look reeeally hot on Insta. But not like a pro? Urethra! I’ll do it “jokingly”. Only, not really! Hah, and they say I can’t think good!
Ugh, I can’t handle Lea Michele. I get second hand embarrassment from the ridiculously try hard attempts to be sexy.
I feel the same about her and therefore could not even hit play. Nope, no thanks!
and it’s perfectly timed with the doors closing, so she must have practiced, which makes it even worse.
i have now seen more of these videos, so it is probably a fake elevator.
Ive seen about 10 elevator vids so far from.different celebrities. Some cute some so awkward
I like all the dresses but the top of Laverne’s is still a bit sheer for my taste.
Oh Lea, that is…embarrassing.
It seems like Lea’s over-the-top and embarrassing more often than not.
On the other hand, maybe I’m just jealous because I wish I had that much self confidence.
Yeah I’m that person (I will see myself to the door after this comment!)….I always see pictures or articles featuring Busy Phillips with Michelle Williams at awards shows but I can’t remember ever seeing her in a movie or TV show or representing a fashion house. Actually had no idea who she was before joining Celebrity. So I didn’t get her claim to fame or if she is actually a working actress. Solved by Goggle. Yes!, she apparently does act in small parts here and there. So is involved in the industry and not just a hanger on.
Back to fashion…I’m thumbs up on all these ladies and their dresses including Ms.Phillips.
She’s a consistently-working TV actress! The last thing I saw her in and loved was Cougar Town with Courteney Cox.
She will always be Audrey from Dawsons Creek to me.
She was Kim Kelly on Freaks and Geeks (as Corey mentions in her post). She was also on Dawson’s Creek, ER, and Cougar Town. I have watched WAY too much boob tube over the years. Sigh 😑
I so dislike that version of strapless dress. It makes her have, I don’t even know what to call it, “overboob” maybe?
Kathleen Hahn looks adorable. I love her messy hairdo — although I’m sure if I try to do it in real life, it will just look messy.
