We'll continue with our outfit evaluation after the jump.
|Milla Jovovich in Marni|
This dress looks a little more casual than I might expect for such a formal occasion. It's a nice enough dress but she looks like she's going clubbing instead of to a formal event.
|Claire Danes in Calvin Klein|
She looks amazing in this dress. The dress colour is dark enough that it doesn't wash her out and the dress itself fits her like a glove (aside from the fact that we can see panty lines up at the waist there)
|Elizabeth Banks in Tommy Hilfiger|
When a person is blonde, like her, and fair-skinned, like her, and wears a dress that's the same colour as her hair, like her, then the person is gong to look like a big golden blonde. Like her.
|Elle Fanning in Valentino|
Isn't this cute - she's wearing a French Maid costume. She seems to have misinterpreted the invitation like some others did: just because this event was thrown by the Costume Institute doesn't mean that it's a costume party.
|Ciara in Prabal Gurung|
I love the ombre and the colours against her skin but the texture looks kind of like a bunch of those plastic garlands strung together.
|Janelle Monae in Chanel|
She's such a tiny woman but wow can she sing and dance! This is definitely her standard "look" but it's been upscaled a bit for the event. Love the top hat and attached veil.
If you're going to wear gloves to an event, here's a tip: make sure they fit. These gloves look like they come from a hazmat suit because they're so big on her arms and fingers.
We've seen a couple of variations on this goddess theme at this event. I like the embellished neck and belt although it would look better if there was less volume at the waist.
|Madonna in Stella McCartney|
I loooove this dress, too. It's got that bias-cut 30s feel to it that is so gorgeous and she's played that up with her lightly finger-waved hair. Everything works on this dress - even the embroidery.
|Eva Mendes in Stella McCartney|
The 70s are back, at least in this outfit. The full sleeve looks a bit too full so it's like she's got an elephant arm instead of a regular on. Maybe the problem is that she needs to learn to pose.
