Last night at the Elle Women in Television Celebration held at Soho House in West Hollywood, the fashion was all over the place: Formal black feathers, vivid yellow fringe, a shiny metallic short suit. While many of the awesome ladies in attendance looked great, there were, as always a few misfires. Let's take a look.

Pretty in pink: Kiernan Shipka and Mayim Bialik both chose soft, peachy-rosy hues.

Love a bright, optimistic yellow, though not necessarily in the fabric that Hearts On Fire's Angie Kielt is wearing. Also having mixed emotions about Willa Holland's fringed frock.

Although: Willa's Chanel bag and white-out nails are great.

When it comes to evening glamour, you can't go wrong with all black everything: Cat Deely, Monica Potter, Molly Sims.

Kicking things up a notch: Ellie Kemper in sparkly midnight blue; Madeleine Stowe in ominous raven feathers. Victoria Grayson is up to something.

Rocking short hemlines: Sarah Rafferty from Suits and Danai Gurira from The Walking Dead. The former looks great, the latter has looked so much better. She should wear white all the time.

More important: Rafferty's shoes!

Kim Raver and Meghan Markle wore the same strapless, pleated satin bustier dress! Which color do you prefer? I can't decide.

Woohoo! Writers! Looking chic: Elle Editor-in-Chief Robbie Myers; Callie Khouri, screenwriter of Thelma & Louise and creator of ABC's Nashville; and Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote the screenplays for the Twilight flicks.

Ooh, hey now. Gentlemen callers: Colin Egglesfield in a great gray; Bill Skarsgård keeping things casual; Joe Zee channelling Don Draper; Joel McHale starring as a tall drink of water for wife Sarah Williams.

Okay, so we need to talk about Bill Skarsgård. So hot. Did you even know that Alexander Skarsgård had brothers? Actually, Stellan Skarsgård has eight kids; four of them are sons who act: True Blood's Alexander, Gustaf, Sam, Bill and Valter. (Daughter Eija Skarsgård is a model, of course; the younger kids are not in the biz… yet.) Anyway, the point is that Bill needs to be in something I can watch ASAP. Maybe even a vampire project. Or an Oscar Wilde mini-series? He has an air of beautiful-but-up-to-no-good that my TV always needs more of.

But back to the clothes. In patterns: Executive Vice President of casting for ABC, Keli Lee gets catty. Actress Adelaide Clemens wears Monet's bathrobe. Dig Jenna Elfman's star-embroidered sheer top, but the jeans, not so much.

Maria Menounos's flirty little dress and detail-oriented shoes are party-perfect.

Now we're getting into some not-so-great stuff. Tracee Ellis Ross and Georgia King both picked pseudo-prints that were not terribly flattering.

However: Tracee's bag and jewelry? A+.

Speaking of not that flattering: The sheen on Busy Phillips's hose and the shine of Ariel Winter's short suit.

Katherine Jane "Janie" Bryant designed the clothes for Deadwood and Mad Men, and this crimson gown is an eye-catching risk that pays off. Erika Christensen's red dress, however, seems loo long and too heavy.

Best dressed? The exquisitely beautiful Morena Baccarin, who looks just like the woman you meet in the first chapter of a noir novel set in the 1930s. Kudos.

I love Sarah Rafferty for being about 5'10" and still rocking big heels all the time. She towers over most people at these things, but she pulls it off with ease.

Also don't we all kind of feel like Morena Baccarin could throw on a paper sack and still be the most gorgeous woman there?
