I really thought after literally hundreds of pictures of celebrities in gowns, I was de-senstitized to couture and talking about yet another red carpet event would be like pulling teeth. I was wrong. The ‘Cosmopolis’ premiere brought quite a few interesting looks from Kristen Stewart,Doutzen Kroes and a couple of ‘bag of bones’ supermodels, among others.
The movie’s teen draw, Pattinson did his usual ‘woke up in a dumpster 5 minutes ago and someone handed me a tux’.
His girlfriend and partner in crime against grace and hygiene, Kristen Stewart surprised me in a red Reem Acra gown.
Someone got slapped up the back of the ear by the studio. Kristen looked as good as I’ve seen her in this lace-panelled plunging gown. Seen as she seems to have let a professional apply her make-up and saved us another outing of her trademark bedhead, I’m going to let the slutty inside-boob pass. I even like the red-on-red with the lipstick.
The back of this gown is the real treat. Not only is that scooped racer-back detail in the lace completely modern, it’s a delight to have reason to look at an image of her that doesn’t include her slapped arse of a face.
Natasha Poly did me a favour and participated in an exercise I like to call, ‘Roberto Cavalli has serious taste issues – I told you so’.
Anja Rubik looked like she was attending a Halloween par-tay in a spider’s web Pucci gown. Super hiddy sexy-skelelton-witch. I need to not look at this person. Her body makes me sad.
Julianna Margulies looked hot, and unusually fresh in a Reed Krakoff strapless red gown. Julianna tends toward mature structured gowns on the red carpet – and that combined with her stern looks generally makes for a ‘stick up the ass’ look. So I am delighted to see her look so relaxed and I love these mixed reds – especially given that this dress beats down Natasha and Kristen IMO.
Doutzen Kroes hit it in a gorgeous green Elie Saab Fall 2012 gown. Sadly the dress didn’t photograph as well as it did on the runway where it was a deeper, emerald green.
Also in Elie Saab was allegedly ‘the world’s most beautiful woman’, Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai. I love this midnight blue sparkling sky but I wish she hadn’t gone there with the matching eyeshadow. Fair play to her for rising above all that criticism about not slimming down after her pregnancy.
Speaking of which, Beyonce’s return to the stage is coming up!
