This year’s first red carpet has finally been walked. For the most part, no drastic fashion statements were made. Purple was the color of the evening (Nine’s Fergie, 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski, Damages’ Rose Byrne, Alfre Woodard, The Blind Side’s Sandra Bullock, Leona Lewis) and the Haiti support pins were without a doubt the accessory of the evening.
Olivia Wilde looked absolutely flawless in a black sparkling Gucci gown. From the incredible draping to the plunging neckline, Wilde did Frida Giannini’s brand justice while accessorizing thoughtfully with a a jaw dropping ring and cuff.
January Jones may have had the best dress of the evening had she not paired her stunning Lanvin black gown with that distracting satin headband. Why the strange accessory? Albert Elbaz’s masterpiece of a gown and her dramatic Paris Chanel red lip were enough on their own. Why the ribbon Jones?
Diane Kruger (top photo) deserves a shout out for supporting Christian Lacroix, whose fashion house has had quite the tumultuous year. While the dress itself may not be one of the evening’s best, Kruger gets major points for sporting a designer in need of serious support. Color, questionable. Earrings, could have done without. White accent, gorgeous. Silhouette, unmistakably Lacroix.
Other hits: Penelope Cruz, Anna Kendrick and Kate Hudson (both in Marchesa), Emily Blunt, Lea Michele, Jennifer Morrison.
