2010 National Board Of Review Of Motion Pictures Awards Gala

Anna Kendrick looks gorgeous wearing a tiered strapless organza Paule Ka dress with a gathered detail at the hip.

As much as I love the dress and her in the dress from the hem up, I can’t help but wish she saved this for sunny LA red carpet event.

It looks like Carey Mulligan may become an ‘unofficial’ Prada brand ambassador after all.

The British actress wore a black Prada dress with a knotted shoulder detail, paired with black satin beaded rosette heels from the Prada Resort 2010 collection.

That suede clutch seems like an odd choice, but I like it.

Maggie Gyllenhaal is probably the only one who can wear a Lanvin dress with ankle boots and get away with it, such is her quirky sense of style.

I adore the rich bordeaux colour of her draped Lanvin dress with hook-eye closure at collarbone.

A hint of rouge on the lips is all the accessory she needed.

Vera Farmiga dazzled in a Dolce & Gabbana black rouched cocktail dress with sequin detail.

    I wish the left side of Maggie’s dress mirrored the right side. I love the neckline on the right, but then the left feels heavey. And the bunched fabric on th left feels out of place. The color is wonderful on her though.

    Anna looks stunning from the shoulders up; not so much from the shoulders down. It is just too ruffly and definitely should not have been worn with black tights.

    Why would someone ever wear a soft and sweet dress with black tights and black shoes ? Just…WHY?

    • Fashion Critic January 13, 2010 at 18:30 #

      why indeed.

    I don’t think Anna’s dress is flattering on her.

    Carey Mulligan is best dressed worthy. It’s been a good week!

    I love Maggie and her risks.

    oh anna, beautiful dress awful tights and shoes… sigh…
    i love Vera most, in this case tights even work.

    Don’t mind the tights on Anna, all four women hit my sweet spot, can’t explain it, but they just seem clarified and right, and not worth quibbling about, even the quirky details like black tights with pink frills…..perhaps not BDOTW worthy (Carey maybe), but just a pleasure to see them.

    i think anna ruins the dress with the tights.donno how cold it is in the states (in europe it is freezingly cold) but i would have at least worn see-through tights

  7. Dana Yartin January 13, 2010 at 20:24 #

    Noooooo!!!!
    Anna ruined the tperfect look with her tights!
    The dress is gorgeous!

      She had ugly shoes to.

    Why does Carey Mulligan always look so so old? She should wear something that makes her look her age.

  9. Leo January 13, 2010 at 21:33 #

    In love with Maggie here. That’s an amazing colour for her. On other women that dress could look too old, but she’s perfection in it.

    Carey Mulligan always looks sad, she should smile sometimes.
    Maggie Gyllenhaal dress is cute but I hate the shoes

  11. Julia January 13, 2010 at 22:34 #

    Anna, gorgeous dress and stunning, stunning ring but then those tights…oh well. Carey is chic as usual and I’m in lust with her shoes. Only Maggie could get away with such an unusual look and Vera looks great…I actually don’t mind the tights on her. Oh and FC is there a limit to how many BDOTW contenders you can have? Because if there is you may go over it!

      i was going to keep it at only 8 this year to make them more interesting as there is always a run away leader, but I think it will be more this week

  12. Martin January 14, 2010 at 04:46 #

    Okay. And here I was thinking that the Sherlock Holmes Berlin premiere would be my best dressed event of the week. After seeing this entry, not so. All four women look so fabulously chic and understated.

    Carey Mulligan was my favourite break-out red carpet star of the year last year and I cannot wait to see what she pulls out for the Globes, SAGs and Oscars. Prada doesn’t really do awards show dresses as easily as other labels do so I await her appearances with interest. At the moment, Carey can do no wrong for me.

    I love Vera’s hair, and dress! I cant wait for the Critics Choice awards and the Golden Globes!!!

  14. Lara January 14, 2010 at 12:03 #

    I think somehow that even without the tights, the dress is too “big” for Anna Kendrick. Maggie and Vera have always reminded me of each other, even though there is no real physical resemblance

    • Fashion Critic January 14, 2010 at 12:22 #

      I feel the same about Maggie and Vera. They could be sisters

    Carey is wearing Valentino Flower Platforms
