Usually mullet dresses have a whiff of hideousness about them, but Kelen Coleman's blue ruffles are sweet.

This menswear-inspired dress on Alison Pill is reminscent of what Krysten Ritter wore to the Way Way Back premiere. From some angles it seems a little shapeless sack; from others it's a fun mix of feminine and masculine. I just don't know if I love it or hate it. A-line? But with a kicky skirt in the back?

Backless? With some some kind of jewel accent embellishment on the neck? Weird. Dig the hair, though.

Black lace was popular at this event. Constance Zimmer's sheath dress is classic.

Between these two black lace numbers — Riley Voelkel on the left and Wynn Everett on the right — the first is more interesting/modern/flattering.

Olivia Munn also wore black with lace, although her lace was in the form of an odd, slender chest strip on a satiny slip dress. The dress is meh, whatever, but she is rocking the shit out of the just-one-side ear bauble, nude lips and sleek hair.

Seriously, from the lace strap up, it's an A+.

They all look great, but I am now dreading the return of this shit show. It's Sorkin at his absolute worst. Sanctimonious and smug, with poorly written female characters and "white knight" male characters everyone kisses the ass of—the scene where Jim lectures Maggie about always making sure to have her Xanax with her in case she has a panic attack comes to mind. Terrible love triangle that makes zero sense (SPOILER: Jim and Maggie love each other and have admitted it, and kissed, and pledged to get together, but then decide at the last minute to stay with their current partners for absolutely NO REASON THAT MAKES SENSE).

If you're wondering, I watch it because my husband sits through True Blood for me, a show he really despises. SO I am forced to watch Newsroom with him—I could do something else, but I developed a need to hatewatch it and now I can't stop.
