Of the rest, Laura Linney was definitely the best.
I love the mellow yellow colour of her asymmetrical Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown, and the embellished waist. She looked outstanding.
Taraji P. Henson looked gorgeous in her J.Mendel Fall 2008 chiffon gown. It was quite dramatic, without going over the top.
She completed her look with a black satin Mary Norton clutch.
The trend for wearing electric blue continues with Mary-Louise Parker. Her Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown had asymmetrical tiers from the bodice, and a chiffon hem and train.
She accessorized her gown with silver jewels and a Mary Norton clutch and Chopard jewels.
Sandra Bullock was another one of my favourites in this vanilla Dior gown.
I love how her hair falls to the opposite direction of her asymmetrical gown.
Rachel Griffiths wore a one-shouldered golden Ralph Rucci silk gown, with a Judith Leiber vintage handbag Decades Inc, Liseanne Frankfurt jewels and bronze Vanessa Noel heels.
Kyra Sedgwick did not wear L’Wren Scott as I had predicted. Instead she wore a strapless red belted Oscar de la Renta gown, with Fred Leighton jewels.
Amanda Seyfried wore an ethereal pearl Stella McCartney silk asymmetric gown, which had a beaded detail on the shoulder.
She completed her look with a Daniel Swarovski clutch.
Heidi Klum wore an incredibly cute strapless vintage James Galanos pouf dress, with black and red polka dots from Decades.
She completed her look with Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals.
I was not crazy about Isla Fisher’s two-tone nude Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown. I would have liked it to be all one colour.
Elisabeth Moss was one of the many ladies who picked red last night, hers was vintage Givenchy, and she picked Garrard jewels to complete her look.
Jane Krakowski opted for a J. Mendel gown, which she wore with Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry.
Melissa George does not do safe, which is why her thigh-high split ice blue Armani Prive gown has an interesting black fan detail on the bodice.
Tina Fey’s Roberto Cavalli plunging gown, also did not wow me.
Surprise guest of the night was Alek Wek. I don’t remember the last time I saw her on the red carpet.
The supermodel wore a Christian Dior Fall 2008 mini dress, which showed off her impossibly long legs.
Vanessa Hudgens wore a nude beaded Alberta Ferretti gown, with a candy coloured necklace.
Madeline Zima looks youthful but elegant. She has an amazing figure and I love how this dress shows her shape and the curves hit all the right points.
Viola Davis’ gown for some reason reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Zac Posen Oscar 2007 gown with shape and the lines.
She dressed well for her figure, and the colour is so complimentary to her skin.
Maria Menounos wore a cute purple ruffle one shoulder Ina Soltani gown.
Samantha Harris wore the same designer, but picked her dress in the colour of the moment – electric blue.
Christina Hendricks has curves to die for. The stunning redhead looked ravishing wearing a custom black silk sculpted strapless Tadashi gown.
Anna Paquin wore a purple Herve Leroux gown, which had a ruched bodice and draped detail on the side.
