I have to say that overall, I really enjoyed this red carpet. While the interviews always seem a bit awkward and rushed, the fashion is what does it for me.
I was quite pleased by the amount of color on the carpet this year. While I had some issues with the shape and silhouette of several gowns (ahem America Ferrera,) I was really pleased with the pops of red, green and yellow. Oh and did you all see Kate Hudson in pale pink?! Damn girl!!
The red carpet first timers always give me something to look forward to and man did they bring it! Brie Larson looked gorgeous in her custom Calvin Klein number and Alicia Vikander went fashion-forward in Louis Vuitton. Though my fiance thought it looked like an apron (that was actually the first thing he said when he saw it; “Is she wearing an apron?!”) Alicia can totally make an apron fashionable!
There was also quite a lot of shimmer and sparkle on the carpet — Uzo Aduba, Olivia Wilde, Kate Bosworth, Melissa McCarthy — and I’m not always a fan of the sequins, but some of these gowns actually made me take a second look (but I still didn’t put many in my best dressed list.)
One of the biggest disappointments of the night? Channing Tatum’s hair! Not a fan, but I’m just going to hope it looks like that for an upcoming movie role or something…
