The People's Choice Awards are like the Zagat of awards shows: you don't really trust "the people," but you're willing to see what "they" "have" to "say." Apparently the stars agree: their duds were awful.

Wearying of the bandage dress, but if you gotta do it, Jessica Stroup shows how: Leger can innovate!


Dakota Fanning is proving to have a knack for age-appropriate and flattering looks at an age when a lot of young stars falter. How perfect is this color?


Jennie Garth looks demure in retro black, great accessories.


You feel like Robin Tunney just had this DVF in her closet: cute and recession-appropriate!

Jordin Sparks looks like a professional gift-wrap job gone horribly awry.

Looks like these other two onlookers are also snarking on Paula Marshall's weird tap shoes.


Jennifer Morrison: the Austrian government called. They want their Klimt back.


Teri Hatcher is eaten by a sinister bow monster wit evil ninja powers.


On the one hand, these soft colors are nice on Jewel. On the other, doesn't it look like a cheap summer dress?


Paris Hilton's vaguely grotesque babydoll kind of reminds me of the accordian-pleated dress Tib wears to dance the "Baby Dance." You know, when Betsy and Tacy premiere the "Cat Duet?"
