Last night in Santa Monica, CA, celebs gathered for the the 3rd Annual Coach Evening to benefit Children's Defense Fund. There were lots of Coach bags — possibly thrust upon the stars just so they'd be photographed? — but also delightful floral dresses, fun shoes and pretty hair. Good-bye winter, hello spring, you dazzling thing.

Long dresses! Maggie Grace's pale floral with lace is a super romantic look, but is she a little washed out? Paula Patton's coral/scarlet/vermillion gown flatters her skin tone but does the shape overwhelm her body?

Ordinarily I might loathe Chloë Sevigny's weird-ass shoes, but with a sweet floral dress, that vibrant bag and those orangey-pink lips, they work. Whimsy, lightness, charm. Into it.

Finally — and I'm as surprised as you are — January Jones. Quite often homegirl is a mess at events like this, but what we have here? Easy floral dress with pockets, camel-colored lightweight coat, chunky heeled sandals and bright orange lips? This looks fantastic.

I guess bright almost neon lip color is in this spring. I'm not sure it works well on everyone though. Compare Ariel Winter's lip to January Jones' lip. I think it works for Ariel, not so much for January. Or maybe it's just the look of boredom that is ruining January's lip look. If anyone was going to go for bright lips, it should have been Jurnee Smollett. It would look beautiful with her skin tone and as a pop of color for her dark dress.
