Last night CBS held a party at LA club Area to celebrate its comedy shows; naturally, we got a lot of How I Met Your Mother and New Adventures of Old Christine. And the kid from Two And a Half Men. And apparently there was a dress code of "Boring or Crummy Attire" because people really ran with it: what wasn't absolutely safe and basic was just flat-out not very good. I mean, I doubt I could work up much enthusiasm for what was probably, like, a mandatory work thing, but talk about phoning it in! And I will not make some joke about how that's what they do for a living, because I just don't watch enough CBS to know if it's true. The Good, The Bad, The Boring - after the jump!


The Good:

Jamie King's pretty little one-shoulder is a "Good" on any terms!

But you see what I'm saying here; however unimpeachable the Little Black Dress, is it still unimpeachable if everyone - including Megyn Price - is wearing it?

Sure, Nancy Lenehan's doing "mom," but there's a time and a place for that.
The Bad:

My sources have told me this is a jumpsuit!!! As such: Bad.

I really like Kaley Cuoco's shoes; what a shame I can't get behind this unflattering, un-basic black number.

I kinda liked Alyson Hannigan's frock, but then the hanging jabot started to remind me of a trailing organ after a lion mauling and, in combo, with the color, that became all I could see every time I looked at it.

I guess pants and little top is still a uniform, but it looks chintzy on Bianca Kajlich.

As I've aged, I've realized my mother was wrong about many things. Unfortunately the dangers of horizontal stripes was not one of them. Doesn't Alex Kapp Horner have a mom?
The Ugly:
