The Business Of Being Born: Some Might've Looked Better In Their Birthday Suits

Last night was the red carpet premiere for Ricki Lake's much-discussed documentary on the home-birth movement, The Business of Being Born. And though the film offers an eye-opening journey through Ricki's choice to have a natural birth (hullo, vagina!), the premiere yielded nothing but some eye-shielding fashion. While Ricki looked chic and svelte in a black sheath (left), her guests looked a little...oy. The good, the bad, and the ugly, all after the jump.



The Good:

Cindy Crawford still looks good. Does this woman ever age? Her tailored suit looks straight out of the costume racks of The L Word, which is a major compliment in my book.

Sure, Amber Tamblyn looks like just about any 20-something woman in the world. Which is why I love this: Amongst her trashtastic peers, Tamblyn keeps it real. Also, check how her boots are a little scuffy! Aw, authenticity!

I hate saying mean things about Carrie-Ann Moss because, of well, The Matrix! But Lord: What is she wearing? And more importantly: Why?

Marissa Jaret Winokur: See above for "It is not easy to wear shiny materials." Also, best not to walk a red carpet in stripper boots.

Did Holly Robinson Peete even know she was going to an opening? Or was she out buying groceries and made a wrong turn by mistake?


The Ugly:

Josie Maran is wearing a jumpsuit. It appears to have sparkles. That is all.

Kathy Najimy is one of the funniest women I can think of. So why are her clothes trying to kill her?
