Looks We Love
What she wore: Custom made Calvin Klein Collection dress, Tiffany & Co. Jewelry.
Why we love it: This look is classic, simple, elegant, yet memorable. It evokes old Hollywood glamour, yet can also be interpreted as very modern, and, it accentuated the actress’ best features.
What she wore: Atelier Versace gown, Forevermark jewelry, Jimmy Choo clutch.
Why we love it: Not many can pull off such a daring, bold gown, and make it look incredibly classy. The fit was perfect, and the incredibly minimal styling worked in her favor. What made the look work the most though was her hair and makeup, which enhanced her beauty yet did not divert attention from the gown.
What she wore: Lanvin jumpsuit.
Why we love it: This bold choice is my personal favorite look of the night. It’s edgy, young, and hip while at the same being classic and elegant. Absolutely stunning.
What she wore: Armani Prive gown, Cartier jewelry.
Why we love it: It’s on trend, the tailoring is perfect, and it’s just plain gorgeous. Her hair and makeup were also on point, and help give this very modern gown some classic undertones.
What she wore: Zuhair Murad gown, Harry Kotlar jewelry.
Why we love it: This is what a black tie bohemian princess would look like. Love the color with her skin tone and hair color. Everything worked perfectly together.
What she wore: Zuhair Murad caftan, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, Jimmy Choo clutch, Stuart Weitzman heels.
Why we love it: Wow. I’m not even going to comment on this one…
Looks We Don’t Love
What she wore: Zac Posen dress, Irene Neuwirth jewelry.
Why it didn’t work: The color doesn’t mesh with her skin tone, making her look pasty white, and the dress is wrinkly and ill-fitting around the waist. The styling didn’t help either – those shoes are not the best pick.
What she wore: Dior Haute Couture, Harry Winston earrings.
Why it didn’t work: The dress is fine – incredibly simply yet elegant, but those gloves! They completely destroyed an otherwise mediocre look.
What she wore: Chanel dress.
Why it didn’t work: The dress is terrible, nothing about it is redeemable. And why is there a giant butterfly on her wrist?
What did she wear? Wearing a Vera Wang gown and Fred Leighton jewels
Why it didn’t work: This could have been a beautiful, show stopping look. The issue wasn’t with the gorgeous dress, or with the styling, but rather with the fact that the dress was very, very ill fitting!
What she wore: Valentino gown, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, Salvatore Ferragamo heels.
You decide: Love it or Hate it?
What she wore: Custom Givenchy Haute Couture, Chopard jewelry.
Aluminum foil wrapped bird or edgy, modern take on a Grecian goddess?
What she wore: Gucci gown, Bulgari jewelry and clutch.
Not sure if the necklace makes the look or just clashes with that unnecessary belt buckle.
