Gwen Stefani in Vera Wang at the People’s Choice Awards: overkill or great?

E! People’s Choice Awards Arrivals

Here are some photos from last night’s People’s Choice Awards. You can see the list of winners here – they really do not matter at all, but it looked like an okay awards show overall. Better organized than the Critics Choice Awards in any case. Gwen Stefani was one of the few “A-listers” who actually walked the carpet, as opposed to simply showing up for a few minutes to pick up an award. Gwen walked the carpet with Blake Shelton, and they both picked up awards for their trouble. Gwen’s award was for some kind of “Icon” something and Blake won for Country Artist of 2019. As fashionable and fashion-conscious as Gwen is, you would think that she would be able to get Blake into a real suit instead of jeans and a vest and blazer. Not so much. Gwen was decked out in Vera Wang, and Blake was… Blake. Also: when Blake won, he said on stage, “Gwen, I love the sh-t out of you.” Which is sweet!

Pink wore Bella Freud and came with her husband and two kids.

Zendaya is too good for this show! Her dress is Christopher Esber. Very cute and appropriate.

Jenna Dewan in Monique Lhuillier, wow she’s far along. She looks great.

Sarah Hyland in Fausto Puglisi. YIKES on everything orange – orange dress, orange lipstick, that’s so wrong.

And here’s Jennifer Aniston winning an award – she didn’t walk the carpet. Her black dress was ODD.

    she used to be so cool and quirky..just so sad to see her messing with her face. with her talent and achievements and it is really heartbreaking to see such lack of self confidence and self worth..

    • Paige says:

      TA @Olala! Sad to see her turning into Heidi Montag face. Where is her confidence? She was all about girl power and owning it….

    • Mtec says:

      Cool and quirky are just some parts of who she is/was. Her insecurity and “lack of self-confidence” also made her the artist she is—it’s probably why she was able to be so vulnerable and with her lyrics and connect with the audience so well. I’m just saying this because IMO some insecurity doesn’t always = a weakness and she shouldn’t be written off from all her achievements just cause she decided to get some lip fillers. She’s still the same Gwen she was then if you think about it and still has the same insecurities, you know? So should we value her any less just cause her lips are fuller? —for me it doesn’t matter and i don’t see it as something to pity on someone. She seems happy.

    • Meg says:

      She said she never thought she’d ‘get a guy as hot as Gavin ‘ so her self esteem did not sound that great b/c IMO marrying a guy when you think like that just doesn’t sound healthy on
      on the tonight show recently she was talking about her Vegas show saying it spanned her entire career back from when she was, in her words, ‘unhappy’ to the past few years when she was ‘happy’. Which seemed like it wasn’t just her divorce and the end of her marriage but many years when she took for granted how unhappy she was until she was with blake.
      I’m not a huge fan of his but the way she described that sounded really sad so if she’s happier now then good for her.

    I actually really like the orange dress, with different makeup it could have been a knockout. Agreed on the “yikes” for orange lipstick though…that doesn’t look good on anyone.

    Zendaya is transcendent. She looks incredibly.

    • Chaine says:

      Yes, the orange dress is stunning—lipstick was such a wrong choice though.

    • DarlingDiana says:

      Agree that Zendaya is stunning. That isn’t even unusual. She is always beautiful. This particular dress is utterly fantastic on her though.
      I like Sarah Hyland ‘s look overall. The lipstick isn’t a boon but I don’t think it ruins the look. I love orange!

  3. DaisySharp says:

    Has anyone been watching the morning show? I have, and I love it. I just watched episode 4 last night. There was a lot of talk beforehand that Witherspoon wasn’t young enough to play ingenue to Aniston’s character. But she doesn’t play that. Not at all. I have never seen Aniston better. Wow what a layered performance and I can’t get enough of this show.

    I love Stefani’s dress.

    • AB says:

      I watched it as well, and really liked it. It has weirdly stuck with me, maybe because of Steve Carrell’s thinly veiled Matt Lauer-esque character.

    • Esmom says:

      Oh, that’s so good to hear about Reese’s role, thanks for sharing. Hopefully I’ll watch it sooner rather than later — I’m still making my way through Big Little Lies!

      I’m not loving Gwen’s dress, tbh. It gave me an instant flashback to prom in the mid 80s. I borrowed a friend’s dress (similar style but pale pink instead of white) that was slightly too small and I felt uncomfortable all night. I think I would like Gwen’s better if it was a darker color.

    • DarlingDiana says:

      I binge watched the show this weekend. I was really surprised by how good Aniston is. Also, Carrell has a very layered performance. Reese is always good so no surprise there. I loved Big Little Lies.
      I read a review from a critic having seen all of it that noted that we should really stick it through to the end because it gets even better. I was planning to anyway but that added to my anticipation.

      • lucy2 says:

        I binged it too! I got into it, and am looking forward to the rest of the episodes. You can get a 1 week free trial, and so far 4 are up.
        I’m glad Reese’s character wasn’t supposed to be much younger like everyone though (why I said maybe we should actually watch before commenting on that!) and I found her character annoying at first but growing on me. The supporting cast is really good, and so is Jennifer Aniston. I think this was a GREAT career move for her, it’s going to get seen by a ton of people and shows a new level to her work.

  4. Ariel says:

    Anybody else think this dress is just a way to lead the boyfriend in the direction of a wedding dress?

  5. Craptastic says:

    She wears that and he wears dirty boots and jeans. I’m always curious what goes through a person’s mind when they do this. Armani shirt, Tom Ford blazer, Tiffany cuff links, and, geez, how to finish this look. But gawd, I’m so exhausted. I can’t put forth anymore effort to complete this look….ugh….let me see what I can find from the hamper…and where are the boots I wear in the barn….

    • Joanna says:

      It annoys me SO much when women go to so much effort and the men don’t even make an effort. My husband ALWAYS looks good, whether he’s going casual or dressy. And I’m not even talking about his looks, I’m talking about making an effort and having great fashion. And it is so appreciated by me, after dating so many guys who didn’t know how to dress. For instance, one would only wear band tshirts.

      • Lindy says:

        I feel all the feels with your comment!! My husband is the best man in the world–incredible father, kind, loyal, hardworking and smart as hell. But he dresses like a frat boy even at 37. I long ago gave up trying to get him to dress better on a daily basis. He’ll absolutely wear jacket and tie age dress shoes or a suit when the occasion demands it, though, so I guess that’s better than Blake.

        I dated a man who was gorgeous and dressed impeccably for every occasion, in a kind of effortless way. I wonder if guys know how attractive it is when they look so sharp?

        I adore my husband so I’ve let it go, but yeah–drives me a little nuts that he won’t make more of an effort.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, he looks ridiculous. Pink’s husband gets it!

    • DiegoInSF says:

      That’s why I love JLo and ARod so much as a couple, they both get dressed to the nines. It’s a sign of disrespect IMO. As a sidenote, wow Gwen is just so breathtakingly beautiful, she deserves a man who doesn’t run over turtles for fun.

    • Deedee says:

      It’s like he’s wearing a men’s mullet outfit. Business on top, barn on the bottom.

      • lucy2 says:

        YES! Perfect description. And I expect nothing better from him, TBH.
        They seem like a total mismatch, but whatever.

        I used to like Pink a lot more before she made her kids be so public. They’re too young and don’t belong on that red carpet.

        Zendaya is stunning.

      • Ms. Blake says:

        Nailed it!

    • AnnaKist says:

      Thank you, Craptastic! This is one of my pet hates – women doing all the work to look their best and their man not even bothering to wear clean shoes. I wonder if hs guy thinks he’s so cool and famous he doesn’t need to bother with such things as nice trousers and polished shoes? Yes, mate, you do, cuz you’re not all that. What a gronk.

      I want little Willow’s boots. I really do.

  6. JanetFerber says:

    I think Gwen looks great. Liked the other fashion too.

  7. Esmom says:

    I really like all the dresses except Gwen’s, which to me looks dated and kinda juvenile in an odd way. And while Pink’s family looks adorable, her outfit doesn’t do her justice, imo. Also a bit dated looking to me.

    • Chaine says:

      Gwen does look dated—there is something 1980’s prom-ish about this dress. Agree on Pink as well—not sure what her outfit even is, but it seems like something fusty—a conservative elderly lady heading to a funeral, not a fresh 40 mom heading to a fun event with her hot hubby.

    • DarlingDiana says:

      Agree with your sentiment about Gwen’s silly look and Pink’s really unflattering suit. Further, I think that Aniston’s dress is lovely through the top and bodice but unnecessarily weird at the bottom.
      To me Zendaya wins this by a mile followed by Sarah Humans even with the Orange lipstick.

    • Deedee says:

      Pink looks like she got half-dressed for a celebrity funeral. Zendaya is the winner. Even the orange dress is interesting and quirky, which means I kinda like it.

  8. Michelle says:

    Seriously, how much longer is Jennifer Aniston going to shove Friends & The Morning Show down our throats? Seinfeld was so much better than Friends ever was. Doesn’t say much when there are only a handful of famous people in a whole room for an awards show.

  9. Sarah says:

    Gwen’s face has officially lost everything that made her Gwen. I happened upon No Doubt’s “Spiderwebs” video last night- and seeing her today makes me sad. She had such a uniquely gorgeous face…I seriously mistook her for Heidi Montag in the thumbnail.

  10. Mia4s says:

    ……so….they’re still doing the People’s Choice Awards?….still?

    And celebrities are still required to act like it’s an actual award and means something?…still?

    …ok.

    Seriously though it’s a brilliant scam! Must still be making money for someone!

  11. Meija says:

    Yep she is tweaking her face, no it’s not terrible it’s actually very good work.

  12. Andrea says:

    What does it say on Gwen’s dress?

    • Mirjam says:

      As far as I can tell it says ‘fashion icon’ – since she “won” the Fashion Icon Award it would make sense

  13. Andrea says:

    Did anyone read the daily mail article where she has been friends with Jennifer Aniston for YEARS because Gavin Rossdale is good friends with Brad Pitt!?!

  14. SJR says:

    Gwen dress looks like she is dragging an expensive bed sheet behind her.
    Blake needs an update on his look ASAP. He his wealthy and the jeans/country kicker look is awful.
    Like the orange dress, hate the orange everything tho.
    Jenna Dawn looks great during her being pg.
    Love the black dress on Z.

  15. SJR says:

    Also, hate the entire outfit Pink is wearing…looks like a lacy neck brace to me.
    And no shape at all.

  16. Charfromdarock says:

    I prefer Karen Gillian’s white mullet dress.

    Pink’s whole family is cute. I love the little stuffie as a stole on her daughter.

  17. SM says:

    I will believe it’s a true love when Gwen manages to get Blake out of those god damn jeans, boots and ill fitted suits.

  18. kessa says:

    I love Pink!! I was sitting next to her in a Cafe in Venice Beach California and there was a stalled car in front of us and she went out of her way to help the driver (she and her husband). They just blended in with everyone and were super kind and humble from what I can see. I love to see good people.

  19. Granger says:

    Okay, JA’s speech… I think that’s the best acting I’ve ever seen from her. Also, I think she was drunk.
