As it always happens with major red carpet events, our beloved celebrities get judged and probed, and neatly placed on the naughty or nice lists of best and worst dressed of the night.
Although fashion is fluid and often subjective, there are a few names that just get it right. Each and every time, with each red carpet look (I’m staring at you, Natalie Portman!).
There were many hits this year but way too many misses and surprises too. Lots of washed-out colors, ribbons and bows, lots of sparkle and see-through apparitions that simply didn’t belong. There were also great gowns, although not as risky as I’d have loved to see.
The absolute winners for me this year were the ladies in yellow. Yellow ruled the red carpet, from Reese Witherspoon’s perfect Versace dress, to Ms. Portman’s canary yellow Prada number and Viola Davis’ shimmery gown. Here is my nice list of the ten best dressed girls of the night (sorry gents!).
10. Heidi Klum. A very pleasant surprise, German super model Heidi Klum looks the part.
