Just like red, blue was another popular gown choice tonight. First up is “Glee” actress Dianna Agron who surprised me wearing the sapphire silk-satin “Skylark” gown from Roksanda Ilincic‘s fall 2011 collection. The color was gorgeous, but I can’t help feeling like the gown was “too old” for Dianna. I would have preferred this dress on someone else.
Oh my, my. Emily Blunt might just be my big blue winner of the night because not only did she select an Elie Saab fall 2011 haute couture gown, she wore my favorite one from the collection. The midnight blue embroidered tulle gown with an embellished waist and dangerously cut neckline was breath-taking. It doesn’t even matter if she had skipped hair and make-up completely (which she thankfully didn’t) because that dress saves all.
Claire Danes looked gorgeous tonight in a blue georgette strapless sequin embroidered gown from Oscar de la Renta‘s resort 2012 collection. I love how the sequins are designed in this dress to almost look like shattering glass and as with Emily, Claire wore my favorite look from that collection. I wish you could see the cool satin platform Barbara Bui sandals Claire was wearing under all that pretty.
I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only one waiting to see what Katie Holmes would wear on the red carpet tonight, I’m also sure I wasn’t the only one not shocked by the fact that she not only worn a solid color silk dress. Katie kept it simple in a Calvin Klein Collection cobalt gown with a silver thin belt. It wasn’t a stand-out look but I thought it suited Katie very well – simple and classy. Katie left her hair up in a high bun and wore a pair of Pierre Hardy sandals. | continue reading..
