The Do Something Awards honor young people making social change, as well as celebrities who do charity work. Worthwhile causes are great, but let's talk about fashion, shall we? Because some do-gooders looked good… while others looked bad, or plain old ugly.

It's Sophia Bush, from that terrible never-ending show about basketball and a tree on a hill. The solid color gown has simple lines, the perfect backdrop for some ornate accessories. This is my fave look in the bunch. Pure glamazon. I could picture it on Iman, Anjelica Huston, or RuPaul. That's a compliment, FYI.

I don't know Laura Govan (from Basketball Wives), but it's pretty obvious she's a shy, demure and modest type who sincerely hopes no one is looking at her. Avert your eyes!

Tangentially-on-topic-thanks-to-Sophia-Bush: I'm going to an "engagement party" (so like a Wedding Lite?) this week, and I've got an orange cocktail dress in a similar shade to Sophia Bush's (mine is knee-length). Does anyone have any good shoe ideas (color/style) to go with? Maybe something more conservative since it's a coworker's daughter's party, but I am open to bright colors.
