Some commentary, à la "Queen of Snark":
J-Gar's dress is too Holly Hobbie for me. I don't find it black tie appropriate — a prairie dress, even in silk, is appropriate for Laura Ingalls, but hardly qualifies as glamorous. Jennifer Garner has shown in the past months that she can pull out Power Glam at will — she should have done so for this event.
Abigail Breslin looks lovely, lady-like, and age-appropriate. She's a Little Miss Sunshine alright!
Jennifer Connelly... Please, please stop pulling your hair into that grim, tight bun! You've got a narrow face, made all the more so by this hair-do — your hair should be your friend, not your enemy! Plus, haven't we already seen this dress on a few other gals (including Hayden P)?
Brooke Shields, what can I say. I think the dress is gorgeous, but there is the little matter of mutton dressing as lamb! That dress would be fabulous on a 20-something ingenue — on a 40-something, it just highlights the years. You're a beautiful woman, stop dressing like a girl.
Claire Danes: Good show! The dress, the hair, the makeup, it all works.
Iman looks fierce as ever. She's like a warrior goddess from mythology. The royal blue fits her queenly bearing, and I really like what this 1920s Marcel-waved bob does for her. I'm not a fan of the wide straps in a different color from the dress (you've heard me complain about that before), but that's my personal preference. Iman rules!
