Let’s cut to the chase, Evan Rachel Wood rocked my world tonight. ERW’s beaded black Elie Saab fall 2011 ready-to-wear gown was perfection for the 24-year-old “Mildred Pierce” star. She was the picture of old Hollywood glamour from her pinned waves, her dramatic make-up, the glamorous silhouette of the gown and the train that glided across the carpet as she moved. I more than loved it.
“True Blood” actress Anna Paquin skipped the red carpet and I only saw her behind a microphone stand briefly during the ceremony, so it wasn’t until the HBO after-party that I got to take in all that was her Alexander McQueen gown. I expected her to wear a McQueen design as she’s a huge fan and I wasn’t let down with the gorgeous gold embellishments at the halter straps and waistline that captured the black silk draped front and sleek skirt. Anna carried a matching McQueen skill clutch and wore Van Cleef & Arpels jewels.
Maria Menounos was a nice surprise when she arrived for red carpet coverage duty. The TV personality wore a sleek sleeveless black sequined gown from Emanuel Ungaro‘s fall 2011 ready-to-wear collection. It was simple yet dazzling.
English actress Lena Headey wore such an unconventional look tonight and I commend her for it! The “Game of Thrones” actress wore a longsleeve Alessandra Rich black gown which she saved from being dreary by adding a blast of color with hot pink calf hair “Maniac” pumps by Brian Atwood. Way to switch it up!
Kaley Cuoco (far left) and Aimee Teegarden (far right) both wore one shouldered black asymmetric dresses by Romona Keveza. Kaley spiced up her spring 2010 dress with a red clutch and double platform peep toe Giuseppe Zanotti satin pumps. Aimee kept her look all black with a Judith Leiber satin clutch embellished with Swarovski crystals but also selected satin platforms by Giuseppe Zanotti.
Jenna Ushkowitz was one of the last people I saw tonight, I had been waiting to see her look and was thinking she had skipped the carpet. I’m glad I didn’t miss the “Glee” actress in a black and white asymmetric Ghadah Paris gown. Jenna completed her look with Casadei shoes, a Judith Leiber clutch and Brumani jewels.
Jenna’s co-star Naya Rivera also wore one of the most popular colors of the night wearing an origami-styled gown by Lloyd Klein. The look was okay for her, but I guess I just expected more.
