Best/Worst Red Carpet Style of '13
BEST: Scarlett Johansson at the Venice premiere of Under the Skin
Johansson was simply stunning in a black off-the-shoulder Versace gown, which she accessorized with a pink and blue sapphire, emerald, and diamond necklace from the Bulgari High Jewelry collection.
WORST: Kim Kardashian at the Met Costume Institute Gala
The fashion press compared the mommy-to-be's in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci floral print gloved gown to everything from a chintz sofa to bad wallpaper, but it was Robin Williams who delivered the ultimate sartorial zinger.
WORST: Gwyneth Paltrow at the premiere of Iron Man 3
It was bad enough that we could see Paltrow's side butt through the sheer panels in her Antonio Berardi gown, but did we really need to know that she had to shave her bikini line before she put it on? TMI, Gwyneth!
BEST: Sofia Vergara at the Emmys
Though Vergara's cleavage-baring crimson gown by Vera Wang drew mixed reviews, it was unquestionably the sexiest dress of the night.
BEST: Kate Hudson at the Golden Globes
Hudson's dramatic Alexander McQueen gown was the perfect mix of Victorian and vixen. The keyhole cut-out is not an easy look to pull off, just ask Katy Perry.
WORST: Miley Cyrus at the Billboard Music Awards
This harlequin print and lace jumpsuit by Balmain was a fashion risk that wasn't worth taking, but at least Miley was wearing pants.
BEST: Charlize Theron at the Oscars
She wasn't a nominee, but with that white Dior Haute Couture bustier dress, those Harry Winston diamonds, and her post-movie pixie hair, Theron was the best dressed actress at the Oscars.
BEST: Rihanna at the Grammys
The CBS standards and practices department — which issued a wardrobe advisory warning performers, presenters, and audience members against over-exposing themselves — may deserve partial credit for Rihanna's unbelievably chic and appropriately covered-up look; a candy-apple red custom Azzedine Alaia gown with matching red lips and nails, and soft, romantic wavy hair.
WORST: Katy Perry at the VMAs
Wearing a leopard-print dress by Emanuel Ungaro, Perry was one of the night's best dressed stars?until she opened her mouth. Let's all pray that lady grills are one celebrity fashion trend that will end along with 2013.
WORST: January Jones at the SAG Awards
The bib-like neckline of her Prabal Gurung dress had me wondering if Jones had stopped off at Red Lobster on her way to the SAG Awards, and I couldn't even imagine an explanation for the pompadour hairstyle and orange lipstick. What happened to this January Jones?
