There were so many gorgeous metallic dresses last night and, dare I say, less fug dresses than we’re used to. Maybe I was thrown off by all the beautiful gowns but I think it was one of the best red carpets in years. Regina King was such a standout in a pink Versace with gorgeous lines of silver sequins. This is so striking and pretty and is my vote for best dressed. It fits her like a glove and I love the train. The back is so cool too, look at how the waist dips into the train. She’s wearing half a million in Harry Winston jewelry.
Cynthia Erivo was a vision in white in a crystal embellished Versace gown with one diagonal strap. This was a striking look for the red carpet and I love the drama of her gown, but her performance gown was even better! That gold performance gown was Vera Wang. Her jewelry is Piaget and her shoes are by Stuart Weitzman.
I’m throwing in Molly Sims here because this feels like a dress that has similar elements to Regina’s and should work but just doesn’t. It could be the combination of puffy sleeves, intricate beading, a deep v-neck and a complicated skirt. This is Zuhair Murad.
Rita Wilson was in Tom Ford. This is lovely but it just covers her head to toe. I would like it better if it was strapless or had a feature to add interest. Still, this is a great plus one dress. Rita and Tom are one of my favorite couples.
