The Good: Okay, the print may verge on "cow" but this retro silhouette looks amazing on Eva Mendes. This is how objective I am being: Meg Ryan looks elegant. When did I develop such animosity towards Meg Ryan, anyway? When did we all? Yet, our dislike is implacable. Debra Messing's frock has a lot going on, but she pulls it off. I love how everyone's rocking these Mad Men shapes! Debi Mazar's print is in danger of giving me a seizure, but she's got the presence to work it. Celeste Holm gets a permanent spot in "Good" for her turn in All About Eve.
Special Award: Don't actually love Lucy Schwartz s outfit, but it's totally age-appropriate, which is a rarity in this day and age!
The Bad: Jada rarely departs from the figure-hugging sheath, which admittedly looks rad on her. The beading on this one? Not so much. Also I can't stop thinking about how labor-intensive that beading must have been, and it makes me sad that I don't like it. I have no compunction sticking Diane English's claret-colored frump in the "Bad" after she had the hubris to direct this movie. Yeah, I know: I haven't seen it. But I don't like her outfit. Kat Kramer is a red-carpet fixture, a sort of really dowdy Phoebe Price whose actual mode of employment is unclear. If understated elegance is not Erica Hubbard's goal, then, well, she's achieved...not doing that. Uh oh! Someone forgot her pants!
