Madonna Makes The Stars Shine For Malawi

Illustration for article titled Madonna Makes The Stars Shine For Malawi

Madonna and Gucci teamed forces last night to raise awareness (and money) for UNICEF's efforts to aid Malawi, the African country beset, like many, from epidemics of AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis. (It is also the nation where Madonna's adopted son David was born.) But onto the clothes! Maybe it's because red carpet regulars were deprived of all their usual awards shows, but they really packed a punch last night. Sure Madonna and little Lourdes looked sweet and polished, but Becki Newton's dress made my heart skip a beat and Ellen Pompeo turned from a fashion don't into a fashion do literally overnight. (As for Rachel Zoe? She looked more terrifying than usual in hot pink.) The good, the bad, and the ugly, after the jump.

@Macloserboy: Lourdes is old enough for a unibrow waxing, if not a tasteful eyebrow waxing; I was 13 when my mom said, "Yeah, this has to happen," and I didn't come out looking too old for my age.

Outside of that, though, Madonna's doing it right.
