Red Carpet: Gotham Awards 2017

Greta Gerwig in Gucci

Greta has very intriguing taste, which can sometimes land on the wrong side of “kooky”. This is just right though- interesting, but lovely. I haven’t seen Lady Bird yet, but hope to before awards season is fully underway and it starts snagging prizes left and right.

Sheer pantyhose?? Really!? I know the world is all turned upside down these days, but are we really going back to a time when sheer pantyhose are a thing? I love a good pair of opaque tights as much as the next girl, but something about sheer stockings is very dated. Too bad, because the dress is really good.

Carey has a very buttoned up, Victorian aesthetic at times, so this Dior suits her well. Imagine it on their former spokeswoman, Jennifer Lawrence though? Not great. Definitely the right match of woman and dress.

She looks like she’s about 12 here. She’s another one, like Greta, with quirky taste, and I want her to make more interesting choices than this. I couldn’t even find a designer credit for it.

She and Reese had a very cute reunion moment. It’s nice that these two badass women genuinely seem to enjoy each others company. If she had followed Baz Luhrman from “Moulin Rouge” to his Gatsby adaptation, she could have worn this. I wish it was sparkles all the way up the bodice though (but I always think the answer is MORE SPARKLES).

I adore this. Reese has always been so very good at classic cocktail attire with a flair, so this is very much in her niche. Plus, the train of sparkles up her side almost looks like it could be the tail of some magical creature out of “Fantastic Beasts”, and I enjoy imagining that Reese Witherspoon walks around with a glittery basilisk on her shoulder.

I’m always pleasantly surprised when Rodarte (they of the Star Wars dresses…#neverforget) produce something wearable. Is this my favorite thing she’s ever worn? No, but it unlike some of the other Mulleavy sisters’ creations, its not made primarily of fishnets and it doesn’t have C-3PO’s face on it, so it’s a win.

Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli

“Get Out” won the audience award and for best screenplay, and I am very intrigued to see how far it’s able to go in some of the bigger awards competitions. I loved it and am rooting for it, and think it is very likely to benefit from coming at the exact right moment when Hollywood is examining itself for various social ills. Allison here has been making the rounds in support of it, and she looks great here. I’m a sucker for a dress that evokes a garden.

Mary J. Blige in Temraza

I think Mary might be wearing the top half of Reese’s golden basilisk! And unfortunately, it seems to have eaten it’s way through her dress all the way to her thigh! WATCH OUT, MARY!
