It was – hands down – the easiest “best of” since Gwyneth Paltrow’s Tom Ford (and I know the resemblance is uncanny). But it was the hardest “who’s my number 2, 3, 4, 5, 6….” because it was also definitely one of the best red carpets ever. So many daring looks, wonderful new shapes (hello pregnant Kerry Washington in probably the most amazing maternity gown, ever) and speaking of looking amazing while pregnant, how can Olivia Wilde could look so good even she’s about to pop?
Two of my always favourites, Cate Blanchett and Emma Watson, nailed it again (I wouldn’t admit even if they couldn’t, but still) – former with a futuristic shaped gown adorned with classical lace, something only Cate can pull of and the latter with the most daring red dress – navy trousers combo. Helen Mirren is definitely aging backwards or the whole thing about getting uglier when you’re old is a complete bullshit, Amy Adams couldn’t get out of her American Hustle look (no complaints) and kept rocking the plunging neckline in a red hot Valentino, dresses that are short in the front longer in the back (hi there the dresses I bought 2 years ago and tossed out recently) made a comeback thanks to Elisabeth Moss‘ breathtaking J Mendel gown (not to forget Caitlin FitzGerald) and so on. Now that I’m writing this post at the Munich airport sitting on a very uncomfortable carpet floor – I am cutting it short. My best looks of the night are standing alone, all the rest in color-coded galleries and the worst are at the bottom of the page. Click through and let me know if you agree or not!
