Chanel's "Night Of Diamonds": Pretty Lovely, Despite Ellen Pompeo

The Chanel Night of Diamonds dinner held last night at The Plaza Hotel in New York (which, btw, is no longer a hotel, but a bunch of really expensive condos) was yet another excuse for Chanel to toot its own horn. Seriously, is there any other way to rationalize a black-tie dinner in honor of a jewelry collection? One thing's for sure, we're damn thankful that the stars who turned out for the event know how to dress themselves! (Sure - they didn't really dress themselves — most all of them were in loaners handpicked by Chanel PR, but who has time to nitpick when there's an opportunity to drool over the gown modeled by Gossip Girl star Blake Lively. [Moe disagrees, saying "it looks like Nightmare On Goth Prom Street". -Ed.]) Then, of course, there was Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo. Seriously, we haven't seen a red carpet disaster this bad in ages. See for yourself with the full good, bad, and ugly, after the jump.

Did no one tell Barbara Bush to stand up straight? Also, everyone knows Krazy Karl is a Hillary supporter — we suspect he instructed this dress to choke the First Daughter.

I don't understand my irrational distaste of Ellen Pompeo/Meridith Grey, but it's real and unavoidable.

My girlfriend loves Grey's Anatomy and while the show itself is fine, I want to kick the screen every time Meridith walks on the screen.

I can almost imagine her saying to a friend "He asked me to swallow. Does that mean he loves me?"

She reminds me of every woman who has ever driven one of my friend's crazy, except she's not as good looking.

Because, seriously, if you are going to date a self obsessed nut job, she should at least be completely smoking hot.
