Glammed up Glee girl Lea Michele had us panting for air, showing off her hot bod in a rose-shouldered Marchesa gown, which featured a dramatically dropped back. Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrevalso raised the temperature in a fire engine red Donna Karan strapless mermaid gown, which cascaded to the grounded in folded tiers of yumminess, while Kerry Washington dazzled in Zuhair Murad Couture
Julianna Margulies experienced a total washout in white, failing to pull off her blinding Armani Prive strapless gown, which was embellished in lucite. She paired the number with matching Roger Vivier heels, which you could only see from the back, where the dress was slit.
Other style slip-ups included Minka Kelly, the “sexiest woman alive” looking like a middle-aged NYC socialite in her navy blue Christian Dior gown, and Paula Abdul‘s ‘Straight Up’ tacky fashion disaster of a dress.
As for wacky, leave it Boardwalk Empire bad girl to Paz de la Huerta to take a perfectly pretty pink dress, and make it look like circus couture. The Boardwalk Empire bad girl paired her gown with too-big triangle earrings and sparkling heels — and her hair and makeup were an entirely different disaster altogether.
