Shiny happy silvery people: Zoe Kazan needs to stand in front of a steam tray. Sarah Jessica Parker's dress is vaguely vaginal. Nick Wechsler is hottt on Revenge, and some of us remember when he was on Roswell, but he looks uncomfortable as hell in this get-up. Take it off? Maybe?

Patterns! Here are a bunch of busybodies: Amanda de Cadenet's wispy floral dress gets weighed down by heavy boots. Peggy Lipton, aka Rashida Jones's mom, mixes and matches like a pro. (Although perhaps the shoes should have been cute silvery oxfords.) Lake Bell's vortex of power is below the belt. And Busy Phillips makes a busy dress look cute.

Deliciously juicy in orange: Leslie Mann.

A pretty rosy frock on Teresa Palmer. The swirls on Erika Christensen's dress remind me of Dracula's wallpaper. And a petal-soft shade on Christa B. Allen is nice but not very exciting.

Jayma Mays opted for bright blue and complicated bondage shoes. You can see the pain. Wince.

Oh! This is my favorite of the bunch. Emma Stone's bright pink set off by black and white for a swingy Sixties vibe. Cute, fun, young, fresh, fashionable, daring, unique, fabulous.

And the hair! Teased to please.

We are now entering the cream/white/pale-hued section of our program. Whitney Port should look edgy in a snakeskin husk and glittery pumps but instead something about it is very "waiting for her order at Panda Express in the mall."

Cream-colored high-necked ladylike dresses with peplums look great on Kiernan Shipka and Ellie Kemper.

Over in eggshell/ecru land: Julianne Hough's ensemble is not terribly flattering, but her gorgeous milkmaid braid makes up for it. Jennie Garth is doing classic Mother Of The Bride.

Sorry, Jamie King, but Danai Gurira killed at the white dress game. Better luck next time.

Okay, so Viola Davis — in crisp white and vivid cobalt — should meet up with Danai Gurira to rule a small nation. And it should be televised. I'd pay money to watch.

And here's another. Seriously though, it's weird Lea Michele has this reputation of being a desperate attention whore with some kind of histrionic personality disorder. She's just a girl trying fun things, she's not all LOOK AT MEEEEEEE all the time. Sometimes she is downright demure! This long-sleeved dress almost goes to her ANKLES for crying out loud.

Guys... how do you wear heels? Seriously. They're so pretty, but OH MY GOD. I got a pair to go with this nice little dress I picked out to go out for my anniversary dinner with my husband, and at first it was fine... but just in the time it took me to walk from the parking lot in through the lobby to the restaurant bar (admittedly a bit of a distance... it's a big place, but I thought I'd picked sensible, comfy heels) the balls of my feet were SCREAMING. Do you just get used to it? I'm 28 and this is the first time I've ever tried to wear them.
