Zooey Deschanel is a fashion favorite of mine. I love her girly dresses, tights and cute shoes. It's similar to (though more twee than) parts of my own personal style. However, this red carpet look did nothing for me, and, really, it didn't do much for Zooey. She has a unique sense of style, and this bland poofy dress didn't express it. Also, the edges of it looked frayed. I don't know if the fraying is on purpose or if it's because she kept getting caught on things (which happened while I was watching the red carpet coverage). I feel about this dress the way Zooey looks wearing it in this picture.
Mayim Bialik is awesome on Big Bang theory. And, actually, this color looked pretty good on her The dress fit nice, and she looks very very pretty. But the whole thing just looked too old for her. I expect someone several decades her senior to wear this. I know Mayim can find a way to be covered up (if that's concern), pretty and youthful at the same time.
Kristen Wiig, as Jael feared, was once again afraid of color. The dress was OK, but it felt a little too casual or nightgown-like for the red carpet. Her very dark hair with the washed out look seemed harsh too. I would like to see more vibrant red carpet look from such a vibrant comedy star.
Cat Deeley didn't go short like Jael suggested, but she did go bright! I love the vivd color and the detailing on the dress. It fits her personality and seems to be making her very happy--look at her smile.
Christina Hendricks loves wearing Christian Siriano. I get it. I loved him on Project Runway too. But he either needs to step up the designs or she needs to branch out (even if he does design some better stuff for her she could still stand for some variety). She has amazing curves, and I want to see some amazing dresses on them.
