Eva Longoria went short for this occasion. The actress opted for a Marchesa Fall 2012 dress. The embroidered dress with high neck and puff skirt was paired with satin black Brian Atwood pumps (blehh) and an off-white printed clutch by Emilio Pucci. Eva wore her hair in a teased updo, smokey eyes finished her look. Claire Danes went for a satin white Vivienne Westwood gown, from the Fall 2012 collection. The halterneck gown with draped neckline was paired with a sparkly clutch. A boring hairstyle and bright red lips provided the finishing touches for this failed look.
Ginnifer Goodwin walked the red carpet in a H&M Conscious Collection dress. The dress with sleeveless high-neck top, tiered skirt and black belt was paired with a gold clutch. Her cropped hairdo and red lips completed the look. Irina Shayk was her lovely self in a white Yves Saint Laurent halter jumpsuit with chain detailing. The Fall 2011 look was paired with a satin white tube clutch. The model wore her hair in a tight ponytail, glossy lips completed her look. I think the cut of the jumpsuit makes Irina's figure come out a little weird...
Rachel Zoe looked stylish in a sheer Valentino gown with pouf-sleeves. The gown was fully embroidered with sparkly glitters, the tiered skirt somewhat flared. The stylist accessorized with a shiny silver clutch. A dark red manicure, matching red lips and tumbling curls completed her look. Malin Akerman walked the red carpet in a cream satin strapless dress with V-neckline and high center-split. The dress with fitted bodice was paired with two-tone Jimmy Choo platform pumps and a black clutch. A chic updo, statement jewels and dark eye make-up provided the finishing touches for Malin's look.
Kate Upton looked sexy and sophisticated in a cream satin wrap dress with white cuffs. The floor-length dress was paired with an Alexander McQueen clutch. The model wore her hair in a messy style, make-up which almost made Kate unrecognizable completed the look. Zooey Deschanel opted for a strapless Oscar de la Renta gown with white flower embellishments. The light grey with white waistband seemed too long on Zooey, since a lot of fabric was gathered on the floor, which totally weighed down the look. A side-swept ponytail with her signature full bangs and a hot pink lip colour provided the finishing touches for Zooey's look. Too saggy.
Dakota Fanning looked cute in a long-sleeve Prada gown with a V-neck and keyhole accent. The fully star and flower embellished gown was very fresh and age-appropriate for Dakota. The young actress styled her gown with bow-detailed sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti and a shiny Prada box-clutch. Cartier bangles, a straight hairstyle and natural make-up finished the look. Tory Burch opted for a light blue one-shoulder gown with folded detailing all over. The gown was adorned in the waist with a tin satin belt. Tory styled her gown with statement jewelry and a loose hairstyle. The colour of this gown completely washes out Tory, plus there is too much fabric going on here.
Elizabeth Banks looked fabulous in a red strapless gown with peplum-detailing by Antonio Berardi, from the Fall 2012 collection. The gown was styled with beautiful statement jewels and a gold Lara Bohnic clutch. A chic updo and red lippie completed the look. Viola Davis opted for a shiny red Amsale gown with folded bodice. The one-shoulder gown was teamed with gold De Beers jewels. A delicate wavy hairstyle and dark eye make-up finished the look.
Alicia Keys totally missed the mark in a tangerine DVF dress. The dress with cut-out detailing at the neckline and long sleeves was mis-matched with a black-and-tan belt and black tights. The singer accessorized with Valentino heels and an oversized envelope clutch. A curly hairdo finished the look. First Lady Michelle Obama looked beautiful in a Naeem Khan Fall/Winter 2011 collection gown. The colours of the printed dress looked gorgeous with Michelle's skin. Gold hoop earrings with coral stones and delicate waves completed the lovely look.
Kate Hudson stunned on the red carpet in a sequined inky purple Jenny Packham gown. The gown with wide neckline and long sleeves featured black embellished cuffs. The actress styled her gown with black patent platform pumps by Brian Atwood and a black clutch. Black dangling earrings and a tall ballerina bun completed her gor-geous look. Rashida Jones opted for a teal-and-black printed gown from the Tory Burch Fall 2012 collection. The gown with sheer yoke and peplum-detail was paired with a simple cocktail ring. A messy updo and red lips with matching manicure provided the finishing touches for this good look.
Kim Kardashian looked chic in a velvet green gown with embellished shoulders and an open back by Johanna Johnson. The sleeveless gown was adorned in the waist with a shiny belt. Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a breaded topbun completed Kim's look. Although this gown is not very well suited for Kim's figure, it is a very sophisticated look and colour on her. Rosario Dawson walked the red carpet in a green structured gown with statement shoulders by Armani Prive. The gown with folded detailing along the revealing neckline was styled with an envelope clutch and simple jewels. Pretty make-up and large tumbling curls provided the finishing touches for the look. For me, this look is ruined by Rosario's twins, which should have been kept in the jar if you know what I mean.
Ivanka Trump looked stunning in a fully beaded grey Naeem Khan Fall 2011 gown. The gown with deep neckline and short sleeves was styled with Ivanka Trump peep-toes and diamond jewels, including hooped earrings and a diamond bracelet. The business woman also carried a shiny clutch. A chic loose updo and dark eye make-up provided the finishing touches for this look. Charlize Theron was also spotted at the White House Dinner. The actress looked beautiful in a black lace gown with nude lining by Emilio Pucci, from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Although the gown covers all on the front, it did have an open back! Charlize teamed her gown with Manolo Blahnik pumps and a black croco-clutch by Judith Leiber. A pulled-back hairstyle and flawless natural make-up finished the look.
Reese Witherspoon looked radiant in a black Monique Lhuillier gown with asymmetrical neckline from the Spring 2012 collection. The mommy-to-be did an amazing job on the accessory-department, she styled her look with blue Irene Neuwirth jewelry, including a large cocktail ring and drop earrings (beautiful with her eyes!). An old-Hollywood inspired hairdo completed this gorgeous look. Lindsay Lohan was a hot mess on the red carpet. The actress wore an ill-fitted black halterneck dress with plunging neckline. She paired her dress with strappy platform sandals. A messy straight hairstyle and a red lip shade finished this look. No no.
Elle MacPherson opted for a black strapless silk-organza gown from the Romona Keveza Fall 2012 collection. The gown featured a draped bodice with peplum-effect and a thigh-high front-slit. Elle styled her gown with crystal-embellished heels by Christian Louboutin and a sparkly black clutch. Crystal statement jewels and a full blonde mane completed the look. Sofia Vergara went short like Eva Longoria. The Modern Family-actress wore a strapless lace David Meister dress, which was adorned in the waist with an embellished belt. Sofia styled her look with an embellished clutch, knotted peep-toes by Louboutin and an encrusted bangle. Dangling earrings and a wavy hairstyle finished the look. Too casual or OK?
Anna Paquin showed off her growing baby bump in a black halterneck gown with open back by Herve L. Leroux. The gown, with wrapped detailing on the bodice was teamed with YSL platform sandals, a black Judith Leiber clutch and sparkly statement jewelry. Dark eye make-up and a chic updo wrapped up this look. Julie Bowen was sophisticated short in a sleeveless Monique Lhuillier dress. The dress with V-neckline had embellished pleats in the front. Black peep-toes by Sergio Rossi and a gold tube clutch completed Julie's look.
Who was your best dressed? I loved Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, Dakota Fanning & Elizabeth Banks.
