well-played

Damn, Stacy. Turns out it’s the second awards season with Intern George that pays the greatest dividends.

    Kiebler has now done what no one on earth thought possible: She makes Clooney look like he is dating above his league!!!!

      He needs to shave!!! He is dampening the hotness (cuz nobody could kill it). Stacy looks amazeballs!

        He has a beard for a role! I’m sure he’ll shave it as soon as he’s done filming, but I think it makes him look distinguished!

    She looks beautiful and the dress is lovely. Nodding to the Gatsby moment that’s on its way without going literal. I don’t even want this dress to be in a color. But I still … with the color … there’s no color anywhere …

    This was easily my favorite dress of the night.

    Does she really never get to stand by herself?

      She totally did. I just didn’t want to use any of them because: DOS EQUIS.

        Like.

        This is fine because I love her all of a sudden and in my mind she is going to tame him and he’ll talk about her in his speeches from now on.

      agreed. my favorite, too. it’s so art deco and amazingly detailed. who designed this piece of art?! the back view is extremely flattering, even with that killer bod which does not need any help. yow-za!

    I normally cannot stand this woman but I had to eat my hat last night and admit that she looked divine in this dress. Easily one of my favourites, next to the magnificent Charlize! Ugh!!!

    You outdid yourself with the Intern comments on this one! lol

      But, girls, how did you miss his comment, re: “I sewed the sequins, I sewed them all myself…” I assume this was part of his internship?

    She looks great. And intern George should shave and have a haircut – don’t you GFY girls have some office policy on grooming? ;)

    I loved this! And I was also pretty surprised by that. But credit where credit is due: she looks awesome. I want that dress.

    My pick for best dressed. She looked amazing!!

    The photo captions almost made me spit out my drink. Too funny! That dress looks fantastic on her.

  11. Sara

    This may be my favorite of the night. She looks awesome, and I LOVE her hair — classic to contrast the more modern dress.

  12. Miranda

    It’s starting to look like a father taking his daughter out for a night on the town. Date someone closer to your age please! The dress is okay. Yet another non-color. Anne Hathaway should’ve worn this.

    Yeah, she looked GOOD.

  14. Stefanie

    This could be my favorite dress of the night.

    I may get flamed for this but I actually like them together. She seems like a totally cool lady (even before she met Intern George) and I like them together. She doesnt feel as anonymous as many of his past lady friends.

      I don’t mind them together, either — it’s also not HER fault that Intern George has a pattern. Good for her for sticking it out longer than most of them have; maybe she IS just that awesome. But i know people who’ve worked with her — even since she started dating him — and have said she was a complete delight.

    Art Deco metallic will always beat ’80s retro metallic, at least in my book. I’d pick Stacy over Naomi. Both amazing, but Stacy’s looked seemed effortless.

    This dress is amazing and she looks fabulous. Definitely a highlight of the night. George as the most interesting intern in the world is spot on.

    All I could think when seeing this was “Intern George is going as the Keibler Elf.”

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

    Normally I am not a fan of hers, I just don’t get her. But man she knocked it out of the park with this one! Well done, she may be my best dressed, I need to see Amanda Seyfried first :D

    I just looked up her wrestling pictures, and I don’t think I will ever be able to unsee them! Tacky beyond belief! Actually comically bad. Wrestling, butt in the air, with a g-string on, groins in each other’s faces. My husband liked the pictures.

    I cannot believe the Intern would date someone who did this, no matter how good she looks now. She was classless.

    I was about to cry and take a nap, when I read this. Totally brightened my mood.

    I like the dress too.

    Please just keep posting pictures of the Cloon with interesting man facts. Make the slideshow like forty pictures long. You know you want to.

    She looks fantastic!

    George, on the other hand……. I was appalled by McFarlane’s “joke” about his dating proclivities (RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE NINE YEAR OLD?!?!) but his beard doesn’t help. At all.

    For clarification: if I had heard the joke delivered in a different setting, I would have laughed my head off. Because, yeah.

    To be honest, I don’t like the neck/sleeve-lines very much… The dress looks best from this angled view. But, from this angled view, it does look AMAZEBALLS.

    I LOVE this. Definitely my favorite of the night.

    I think it looks amazing. I like how it appears to be floating on her body. The lines of the pattern play soooo well over her curves. So flattering. One of my favorites.

  29. Rayna

    Just how many yards long ARE her legs?

    Inquiring minds…………

    And, GFY Heather, “most interesting intern in the world” FTW!!!

    the thing is, he may actually BE the most interesting man in the world. he wins a best producer award! and allows everyone ELSE to speak without saying a word!

    She is so pretty and always so relaxed and polished at the same time. I guess George has a salutary effect on a girl. BUT DOES NOT HE LOOK MORE AMAZING EACH DAY!

    I’d forgotten about this dress until this post, but yeah, one of the top ones of the night for sure. Just breathtaking.

    She probably gets my best dressed vote. There were others who I also LOVED, but the dress, the fit, the makeup and hair, everything, was just perfect on her.

    This dress is amazing! Intern George, however, desperately needs a tailor for those pants. Yikes.

    I mean, I know long legs are like her thing, but DAMN those are some long legs.

    Another vote for Best Dressed, here. This was spectacular.

    And now I have to go look up YouTubes of her wrestling…

    She looked fabulous, and I covet that dress. Also, it was very considerate of her to match the color of her dress to Intern George’s hair and beard.

    George. Hem your pants and button your jacket. You’re at the Oscars for heaven’s sake. She looks SO much better than him but he could look more at her level if his jacket was just closed.

    She…is my best dressed. Tentatively.

    Your “Most Interesting Man in the World” comment had me when you all were live blogging. Oh George. Shave and a hair cut, and throw in two bits for good measure.

    GFY Heather, you’re AWESOME! I unreservedly LOVE this dress! I love its metallic color, silhouette and simple elegance! She looks statuesque! COVET! I don’t like her hairdo, but this is one of my favorite dresses of the night! FAB!!!

    This is the 1st – and likely last – time I’ve wished to be Stacy Keibler. Or maybe I just wish to own that dress…

    He’s gay, right? That’s the only way I could tolerate the Keibs.

    I like this one, too! Not quite as much as Naomi’s intergalactic dream of a dress, but this is solid. I actually don’t get so much of a Deco vibe (as some have suggested), but more a warrior queen feeling, which, as I’ve said before, I cannot resist.

    Also, she has very lovely shoulders.

    Clooney is sliding into creepy-old-rich-guy-with-trophy-girlfriend territory.

    I literally said “Wow” out loud when I saw this. I had previously thought Jessica Chastain was the best dressed but Stacy beats her. Hands down, the star of the night (but I bet she doesn’t make it to any Top Ten best-dressed lists because she’s the “plus one” side of the couple). Some bad news for George: my 10 year old daughter, who is too young to have seen any of his movies and has no idea who he is, took one look at his grey hair and beard and asked, “Is he her dad?” Ouch! From the mouths of babes…

    But I do have to agree that it was the height of class and generosity for him to choose not to speak so as to allow Ben his moment in the spotlight.

    The dress is gorgeous.

    The captions to these slides are comedy perfection.

    HA HA HA HA HA That was hilarious, and so right on. It looks like Stacy is having a fling with her grandfather. Stacy looks adorable with her hair like that and has a totally rocking body. That dress looked perfect on her.

    She looks great. Clooney looks awful . . . and OLD.

  54. Soapstef

    Oh no. It’s not that I don’t like this dress…it’s the sense of ownership he seems to have regarding her. She looks almost robot-like with him and a metallic dress emphasizes it even more. I almost expect him to whip out a remote and command her to rub his chest!

    I like the glitter and the pattern, but the top half is bad : it looks cheap and makes her shoulders look so wide. Could be (should be) way better.

    Hi! I’m fairly new to the site. If it isn’t too much trouble, can some explain the title Intern Gerorge. Thanks.

    Best dressed, even if I don’t care about her otherwise. Okay fine, her or Jane Fonda. I want that super 80′s dress so hard. Yes, it IS super 80′s.

    Easily my favorite dress of the night but I hate her hair SO VERY MUCH. Enough that it completely ruins the dress for me.

    *Slow Clap* Well done on the jokes in this post. I bow in awe.

    Great dress and she looks like an adult. Like Naomi Watts. And Jessica Chastain. And Jane Fonda. And Queen Latifa. I appreciate women who can own their age and look fabulous doing so. Anyone can be physically gorgeous at 20–22. Kristen Stewart proves you can have horrible hair and a slightly ill-fitting dress and still look pretty darn stunning. But the thought and planning that went into Stacey’s look and Naomi’s look is impressive. It’s like they were preparing for a stage role. Lovely.
