    hey FC, where’s Ana Paquin? she was one hot pregnant lady in her Herve Leroux gown, even hotter than Reese here.

      I could not feature everyone, no publication does as it becomes very expensive. So I only featured those with a talking point.

        i’ve missed seeing her on your site..hope to see more of her, especially her pregnancy style.

    It’s a tie between Leslie Mann and FLOTUS. Both looked flawless.

  3. MoxieSue April 30, 2012 at 19:59 #

    Even with only half a dress showing, FLOTUS wins hands down.

      +1

    My best dressed is Elizabeth Banks. I think she looked flawless.
    My runner-ups are Michelle Obama and Leslie Mann.

  5. Riley April 30, 2012 at 20:25 #

    Even though I am swooning over MO, I voted for Leslie because she needs my support the most.

  6. Hannah April 30, 2012 at 20:28 #

    I would have voted Ginnifer in a heartbeat, because for me, when done properly, interesting, unexpected & memorable > Gown that I will forget the next time a good one comes along, but after that, without a doubt, Michelle O, even if she was wearing black pumps, hell even ankle boots, was so much better than the rest of them to me.

  7. Sara April 30, 2012 at 20:58 #

    Love Leslie’s look from head to toe. I thought Kate looked beautiful as well, but couldn’t get past her hair.

    Although now that i think about it, how can we not vote for Michelle? LOL She is the 1st Lady and all ;)

  8. Rebecca Z April 30, 2012 at 21:41 #

    I am so curious about why Kate Hudson is getting so many votes. I like her a lot, but her dress is nothing special and the hair…well, enuf said.

    • Wong Hiao Hiao May 1, 2012 at 06:39 #

      Was wondering about that myself. Kate Hudson looks good, but not extraordinary.

  9. Mrs. A April 30, 2012 at 22:16 #

    Sorry, I cant vote for FLOTUS with only half a dress showing. A lot of the looks are nothing special, but Kate Hudson and Reese Witherspoon with her baby bump stood out to me.

  10. EmmaWoodhouse April 30, 2012 at 22:22 #

    Leslie Mann–perfection from head to toe and I hope she makes it to the BDOTW poll! Reese, Elizabeth and Michelle also looked good.

  11. CreoleLady April 30, 2012 at 23:06 #

    The big winner is Naeem Khan, w/o a doubt. There is the FLOTUS and Leslie and then everybody else for me.

  12. Nat39 April 30, 2012 at 23:52 #

    Michelle’s hair isn’t working at all, with such a print-busy dress it’s an unnecessary distraction, should’ve been neatly pulled back with the focus on the eyes and earrings.
    Kate Hudson gets my vote, she owns this look (!), not everyone seems to be happy with her hair but I think it works perfectly for her with the look.

    I’m disappointed you didn’t cover Kim Kardashian. I know you’re not a fan but she looked pretty sophisticated so I thought you’d appreciate it.

    • Fashion Critic May 1, 2012 at 00:40 #

      But why? I haven’t featured her on the main page for over a year.

      The last time I featured her readers were rightly disgusted. I took the decision then to never feature her again, even if she wears Elie Saab to the Oscars.

      Honestly, I don’t get the fascination. She’s a vile woman amd a very poor role model.

      • EmmaWoodhouse May 1, 2012 at 03:32 #

        “She’s a vile woman” lol I laughed at that one. :D Have to say I agree. I did think she looked quite elegant at this event but I understand why you choose not to feature her. You are practically the only site that doesn’t!

      • Rory May 1, 2012 at 14:39 #

        I noticed as well! She’s been having some great street style moments, but I completely understand. In general you don’t like floosies and attention whores I notice FC. Women of substance get a lot of coverage. WAGs, reality stars, (and Lea Michele)either begrudgingly get featured with a slightly dismissive post or they get completely ignored LOL I find it refreshing someone who is willing to say, listen – we can’t celebrate women who are famous and have great stylists because they did amateur porn.

    At first I was going to go with Mrs. Obama, but I can’t get over how beautiful Leslie Mann looks. She gets my vote.

  15. Sonya May 1, 2012 at 01:11 #

    I had a hard time choosing between Dakota and Rashida, but went with Dakota because I never met a glittery embellishment I didn’t like.

  16. Mol May 1, 2012 at 02:34 #

    Leslie with no doubt – she stands out for me.

  17. P. May 1, 2012 at 02:37 #

    wow, very well dressed event, much better than last year. Mrs. Obama was my best dressed, gorgeous gown against her skin tone; Liz Banks coming very close in that stunning Antonio Berardi!!!
    FC, just for curiosity, how do you discover the labels/designer’s outfits and the season they wore presented, when they aren’t revealed to the public?

  18. Alina May 1, 2012 at 05:15 #

    1. Kate Hudson
    2. Michelle Obama
    3. Elizabeth Banks
    4. Leslie Mann

  19. TeaAtTwo May 1, 2012 at 11:54 #

    Had a tough time choosing between Elizabeth Banks and Mrs O – both were absolutely amazing.

  20. Shiny May 1, 2012 at 15:10 #

    Is there a ‘Not Rashida Jones’ option? She’d possibly have a right to be in the top 10 if she didn’t have ‘after the gym’ hair. Shelly-O gets my vote.

  21. Sarah May 1, 2012 at 23:17 #

    I liked Ivanka Trump best, but since she’s not featured in this poll, Mrs. Obama will get my vote
