    Whatever it is that Leslie Bibb has on, it must be burned. My head hurts trying to figure it out.

    Actually Lea’s dress is more covered up than on the runway. The exposed corset/bra is something she added as on the runway it was just the plunging neckline. It’s a bit cheeky and fun and I’m glad she didn’t wear it without!

    I am convinced that the invitation for this event read, “Attire is Fabulous or Horrid.” They insisted people either show up in something really cute, or something that would make a normal person want to throw up. Because there was no middle ground in those pictures. If it was good it was great, and if it was bad I felt like I needed a bucket. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had people standing by to pull aside anyone who showed up in something that wasn’t extreme enough and make them swap shoes, or put on a Don Johnson blazer or something.

    holy f*ck. Jayma Mays, you poor sweet girl….noooo noooo nooo.

    Just when I thought I couldn’t love you guys more, you reveal your love of Mary Cherry. Listen, whenever I one day become famous for basically being a homosexual amalgam of Tina Fey, Dorothy Zbornak and Andrew Garfield, we HAVE to hang out lots okay? You can be on my talk show.

    First thought on seeing this, “I hope they’re planning on doing the parenthood paley fest arrivals!”

    It’s nothing short of a tragedy that you guys weren’t around to fug episodes of gilmore girls, but the fact that you guys obvs loved it and still love Lauren Graham is a pretty good consolation prize!!

    I need to tell you guys that I was at the market with Kelly Carlson the other day and she started chatting to me in the checkout line and she was so nice (but a little kooky) and buying, essentially, only PopTarts. It was kind of hilarious.

    • Sajorina

      That makes me want to move to LA so badly! I need more crazy fun in my life!

    I’m trying to figure out why Lea Michele felt obliged to show up in formal evening wear (well, relatively speaking) while everyone else (though perhaps Jenna Ushkowitz excepted; hard to tell what her bottom half is draped in) dressed for a completely different event.

    And on a completely different note: Someone really should cast Kelly Carlson as Jessica Lange’s daughter. Wow, they look alike!

    • filmcricket

      Lea always overdresses for these things. ALWAYS. I was kind of hoping that now that Rachel Berry essentially dresses like Lea Michele that we might see less of the “I need to prove I’m a sexpot” on the red carpet but apparently not. Guess that’s just who she is, so go her, I guess.

      That said, Cory Monteith and Darren Criss both wore suits with ties to this thing, so she wasn’t the only one somewhat dressed up.

  9. Sabrina

    Lea Michele- no.

    I miss read Kelly Carlson as Kelly Clarkson and about had a heart attack.

  10. Deborah Stultz

    I truly thought this event had a dress code of black and white until I saw Jayma Mays.

    • deee

      I almost forgave the white pumps until I realized that black and white was not the theme.

  11. jen

    I want ryan murphy’s shoes…to wear with jeans and stuff.

  12. Bailey

    The runway version of Lea’s dress actually doesn’t have the lace part, I’m pretty sure we’re just seeing undergarments. Somehow, more coverage makes it tackier.

  13. Jade

    A bit OT, but please tell me I’m not the only person who thinks Ryan Murphy and Gunther from Friends are long lost brothers.

  14. BrownEyedBetty

    After days and days of celeb shots with one or more hands on hips, at least it’s a change of pace to see Lea Michele’s odd style of posing. No one else does it quite like her with (usually) one arm always forward of her body. This time it’s both which is even weirder. Not sure how and why she does it and it makes me a little crazy as it looks so pre-meditated and rehearsed.

    • katefish

      Whoa, you’re right. What is up with this pose? Is it a hip-reducer? The hand to the hip makes your arms look skinnier, but I don’t know what Ms. Lea is up to with this one. Now that you’ve pointed it out, I’m totally skeeved.

  15. Brooke M

    Mary Cherry!! She needs to be in more stuff. Actually, she needs to be in everything.

  16. kb

    I actually like Lea’s dress – maybe not the skirt so much, but I think the top is really pretty and looks good on her.

    In other news, I don’t watch Glee or know who this Mary Cherry character/person is, but why did she feel the need to wear a bow dress AND bow shoes? Bleccch.

  17. Joey

    Oh my goodness, I still quote Mary Cherry to this day – “Oh my God, y’all! Brookie’s got a BONG!!” & “Stand back! This is ladies’ work!” & “Moving and prayin’ hard for ya!” were exclaimed by myself and my sister for years (for any reason) after the show ended, thanks to her delivery. I also wonder why, now that Ryan Murphy has 1 million shows, she isn’t on ALL of them. Because she is a wonderful comedic actress! And she looks good!

  18. Helen

    Very nice to see Leslie Grossman – and Carly Pope!

    Lot of weird clothes here though. I think the erstwhile Mary Cherry may be the only one of the women in an attractive, or comprehensible, outfit.

    Speaking of, isn’t there any way to get Lea Michele to just stop? Romulan intervention, perhaps?

  19. MegoPachego

    Mary Cherry = bow-verload. (OK, that’s terrible, but I’ve been up ’til like 4am writing papers like 3 nights in a row so I’m sleep-deprived.)

  20. Ruth

    White nail polish will always look like someone put Wite-Out on their nails at school in boredom to me.

  21. Kris M

    I think Lea Michele has been working on a better red carpet expression though, she looks much less like she’s mugging for a Cosmo cover or lipstick ad.

  22. CJG

    I don’t know who Leslie Grossman is, but I adore her bow-patterned dress!! What a great look!

  23. sandra

    pop (pop!) goes my heart….great, now that song is stuck in my head

    • Mary

      Man… We just watched Music & Lyrics last weekend… I had just gotten that song out of my head… oh well… Pop Goes My Heart…

      • KarenG

        I love that fake music video – part homage / part spoof / all 80s! And now I too have it stuck in my head, but that’s okay cause it just drove out Skyfall, which is a great song, but not for days on end.

  24. Sajorina

    Now I’m dying to see the picture of the bean wearing a onesie backwards! I love the beans!

  25. Lucille Austero

    Negligee what?

  26. TonyG

    Lea: She needs one of those cleavage cover doo-hickies (in black) that they advertise; you know the ones…they look like a trapezoid cloth and you place it in your shirt when you want to be a bit more modest. Uggh…I hate when I can’t think of the name of a product.

    Naya: She looks va-va-va voom sexy, and yet somehow classy.

    Jenna: At least she’s giving good face and hair.

    Ryan: He’s much to pale to pull of that shade of yellow in a suit; he needs to switch colors…suit green, tie blue and shirt yellow?

  27. Shelly

    Mary Cherry FOREVER!!!

  28. Laura

    I think Jayma Mays looks kind of cute. Although I also think that she was separated at birth from the actress who plays Jane on the Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

  29. Vandalfan

    The men all have nice shoes.

  30. jenelope

    What I want to know is why Leslie Grossman isn’t on “The New Normal?” She is a perfect fit. Rocky needs a sassier foil than Nana. On a related note, I’m always disappointed that Ryan Murphy doesn’t look like Andrew Rannells.
