Although not an awards show, the Art of Elysium Gala brings out many A-list celebs and just as fabulous dresses. As always though, not all of the looks were a hit so let’s take a gander at the red carpet arrivals from the 2012 Art of Elysium Gala.
Rachel Bilson in Chanel
When I see this dress I immediately think of Elle Fanning but Rachel really pulls this off (but seriously…what can’t she pull off?)
Molly Sims in Marchesa
When it comes to these types of gowns, it’s easy to go too literal with the whole “Grecian” theme so I’m not a huge fan of the braid. However, I always like to give the pregnant ladies a break when it comes to the red carpet and Molly looks stunning.
Minky Kelly in Oscar de la Renta
A bright gown done right…I love everything about this! We’ll be seeing lots more yellow on the red carpet this season. You wait and see…
Kirsten Dunst in Valentino
Too conservative for my taste. This needs to be on Florence Welch.
Kelly Osbourne in Guishem
I love her but her red carpet choices are either a huge hit or absolutely terrible. This one is on the terrible side. Drab colors, unflattering bodice and I still can’t get over the hair.
Julianne Hough in KaufmanFranco
Always a bore on the red carpet. Always.
January Jones in Chanel
I can’t tell if this would be really great with better shoes, or still just so-so. As is…not a fan. Love the sleeves though.
Jamie King in Valentino
This is similar to my commentary about Molly Sims in Marchesa, except replace “Grecian” with “Renaissance” and there’s no forgiveness because she’s not pregnant.
Camilla Belle in Carolina Herrera
I don’t love this dress but Camilla still looks fierce. Remember what I said about yellow this season?
Brittany Snow in Catherine Deane
I like the unexpected pairing of the green earrings with the coral dress. She looks cute, but the dress seems a little long (which is much more obvious on a petite girl like her).
Amber Heard in Donna Karan
The whole bombshell look is so not my thing but WOW…this is “bombshell” done right. The dress fits perfectly, the hair is amazing, I love the red lipstick…and the girl knows how to pose on the red carpet!
