Sarah Silverman was by far the worst dressed on the red carpet. The funny woman tried to pull off a joke by pairing a black prom-like dress with red Converse Chucks and a pair of tennis socks. Was that supposed to be funny? I do get that she tried to make fun of the red carpet craziness, but the joke backfired in my opinion. She probably won’t be too bothered about it though and will laugh it away like a good comedian should.
Kristen Bell is another one who got it all wrong with her outfit. Did she really think a shapeless creased silver tube dress would make her look good? Kristen normally puts a lot of effort in her red carpet outfits, so I suppose she missed the date of the Critics’ Choice Awards, got panicked and snapped the next best thing out of the laundry.
I give her half a star fo the grey patent stilettos and another half for the cute statement necklace. These are the best things about her attire.
UPDATE: I cannot believe this shapeless dress is a piece from the Stella McCartney Spring 2009 collection. But it still looks a thousand times better on the model.
Marisa Tomei also had a hard time pulling off this black Giambattista Valli Fall 2006 dress. The dress is gorgeous as it was presented on the runway, but it should’ve been adjusted to fit Tomei’s tiny frame (especially shortened because it looks so unflattering at this length). A typical case of dress domination.
Penélope Cruz is normally ones of my red carpet faves. Not that she is a big fashion risk taker, but she usually wears something beautiful and elegant that makes her stand out from the crowd (think Oscars 2007).
Unfortunately this was not the case here when Penélope chose to walk the red carpet in a midnight blue strapless Yves Saint Laurent gown. Not that it’s an ugly dress, but it looks simply plain and boring on PenÃ©lope who didn’t seem too fond of her dress choice as well. Let’s hope she’s saved the best for the big occassions.
I do envy Penélope’s YSL clutch though.
