New York and California hosted a slew of A-list events last night, bringing out actresses like Tina Fey, Halle Berry, and Emmy Rossum, and fashion heavyweights like Monika Chiang, Pamela Love, and Carol Alt. But which coast had the best dressed stars? It’s more like who was the least lazily dressed. Let’s break down some of the looks.
The cast of Community stepped out in Beverly Hills at PaleyFest. Alison Brie worked a royal blue jumpsuit not unlike one we saw at Valentino just yesterday, and Gillian Jacobs chose a cool Mary Katrantzou-esque frock. Over in Hollywood at the premiere of The Call, Halle Berry, as expected, worked a tousled ‘do and a skin tight LBD. Listen, we know Berry’s bod is tops, but can she please change it up a bit? It’s not the ’90s anymore! Meanwhile, 16-year-old Olive Hoover Abigail Breslin went for a more grown up look, and showed some skin in a midriff-bearing ensemble topped off with side-swept tresses and a bold red lip.
At the Admission premiere in New York, funny woman Fey went all trendy in a leather peplum top and printed pencil skirt, but as much as we love her, the length of the skirt made her look a little dowdy. Most of the attention in the city was on the two screenings of Oz the Great and Powerful, one hosted by Gucci and the other by HSN. Neither red carpet was particularly better than the other, though we do have to say that Rossum’s floral dress is absolutely perfect for a tea party, and Sandra Lee gets points for channeling her inner Kate Middleton in a cream coat and knee-high boots.
Last but not least, Tilda Swinton schmoozed with Princess Caroline of Hanover at a Pringle of Scotland event in Paris. Usually, we love everything that Swinton wears because it’s always unexpected and fashion forward, but in this case, her white column gown just looks like a bedsheet. Better luck next time.
