    Hmmm, who is that next to Elisha Cuthbert?

    Elisha Cuthbert wins this slideshow.

    However, I think Shanae’s shoes make that outfit more of a fail than you gave her credit for. Also, I am NOT digging Ariel Winter’s look, sorry.

    Lastly, I must defend my beloved Kara Thrace. I think if Katee had gone with a color, and different hair, it would have been better, but overall I think it’s all right.

    Oooh, I completely disagree with Kristan – Shenae’s shoes make that outfit much BETTER than it deserves to be. Sarah Drew and Rumor Willis need to be much closer to the “hot mess” end of the spectrum, despite the fact that Rumor’s dress is pretty awesome. Her hair is TERRIBLE like that. And, as Lainey has said, the girl needs to learn her angles if she’s going to photocalls.

      Seriously. I don’t even recognize her.

        OMG what happened to her face??? I mean, I can kinda tell what happened. AND IT’S BAD. Poor Starbuck.

    I would put Aubrey at #1 … or #17. Basically, I think her dress was the Champion. I don’t think I can get behind the shoes, though.

    Elisha’s dress can be yours! I have it myself, it’s from Madewell.

    Katee Sackoff’s dress is definitely a disaster–but more so: HER FACE! I didn’t even recognize her! Are we looking at a major plastic surgery fail?!

    Re Rumer Willis’s hair, clearly you guys don’t know what it’s like to keep curls under control. Having similar hair (and similar end results), I applaud her going natural and not giving in to the straight hair dictatorship. And, yes, sometimes you just need to go a bit heavier with product to avoid the dreaded triangle head.

      GFY Heather has curly hair herself, actually.

        I also have curly hair, and I think her hair looks horrible. These people have deep pockets and can afford good hair stylists and better products. I accidentally put too much Frizz-Ease serum in before, yet my hair never looked this simultaneously wet and crunchy.

        also important to note that Rummer does not have naturally curly hair, at least not that I remember ever seeing before.

    The said thing is, Shenae Grimes and Kristen Ritter would actually look really cute if their dresses weren’t sheer.

    So many of these look like bad waitress or musical theater costumes. But I covet Aubrey’s frock.

    OLivia looked great. I didn’t know any of the others except Kate W . They looked awful – the expensive tackiness of it all ! They also looked sad liked they ( except for Olivia and Kate) knew they were D list. depressing.

    I think Brenda Strong’s dress is fantastic. Sparkly, simple, clean. I love it.

    So glad Katee Sackhoff has an a and not a u in her name. But I guess that’s been said before. I have no idea who she is…………

    OMG, I looked at #9 – Kathleen Robertson and all I could see was Ryan Reynolds!!! For real, she looks like him with lipstick! Also, Rumer’s hair? Looks like weird Al Yankovic. I think I’m delusional, better go take my meds.

    Am I the only one disturbed by the shoes Ariel Winter has been wearing? I feel like they are way too “mature” for her. Sheʻs only 14!! Or am I just an old fuddy duddy? I know sheʻs a star, but… jeez.

    The Daily Mail featured this pic of Krysten Ritter, and the article said something like “Krysten Ritter accidentally revealed her shapewear in a sheer dress.” No, Daily Mail, this is not shapewear. These are special black underpants that – along with all the black bras currently on display under lace tops – constitute an item of actual clothing in the cracked-out sphere of celebrity red carpet dressing. And it’s anything but accidental. It’s pre-meditated! With malice aforethought!

    1: thank you Krysten Ritter for wearing full briefs instead of a g-string.
    5. If designers have to use lace on their see-through garments why can’t they use a heavy, classy looking lace instead of these tired, cheap looking floral designs ??

      I could not agree MORE about lace. It so often just looks so damn cheap and flimsy, which detracts from any look. And it doesn’t have to – lace can be amazing and beautiful and intricate and bold, even. But they almost never use anything but Victoria’s Secret Floral Pattern #3. sigh.

    I’m also put off by the fact that Ariel Winter is 14 and dressing like she’s in her 20s. The makeup is too much for a girl her age too.

    Krysten Ritter’s dress (and her whole look) would have been my favourite were it not for the sheer skirt. Lined, it would have been made of fab. Unlined, not so much. Rumer Willis’ dress was gorgeous, and fitted her beautifully. Oh, and I love Eliza Coupe for wearing glasses, so I can’t hate her outfit.

    Anna Gunn looks like she went to the bathroom and her skirt accidentally got stuck in her underpants somehow.

    I realize I’m a boring non-celebrity, but it amazes me that people will look at themselves in the mirror and then still walk out the door in some of these outfits.

    A few of the looks, I did like, but it was just so much fug all at once I can’t even really see the better ones.

    So. Much. Fug.

    I share Rosa’s amazement. I might even be a little slack-jawed. Most of these, I looked at, and thought, “But don’t they have mirrors?”

    I think Casey Wilson looks pretty awesome in that actually, I don’t think anybody has pulled off a jumpsuit that well since Gwyenneth circa Iron Man 1. And Elisha looks amazing, too bad Eliza dropped the ball cause otherwise the Happy Endings girls are awesome looking. Also that show is hilarious, it is exactly what How I Met Your Mother was in seasons 2-4

    Can we stop with the sheer/lace top over a bra? I am incredibly over this look. I thought it would go without saying that we should never do this look in reverse (sheer skirt over bad underwear? REALLY?), but alas, it has been done.
    On the plus side, I am fully on board with toe cap shoes. Keep this going. Well done, Ariel Winter’s stylist.

    I love Elisha Cuthbert & Olivia Munn’s outfits… They’re covetable! FAB! And I love Shenae Grimes outfit, but I wore a version of that exact same outfit to my 10th grade Christmas Party in 1993! It’s a mix of FAB! & REALLY?!

    Except for the last two, they all made me think, “You have GOT to be KIDDING me!”
