    • Sea May 10, 2012 at 21:19 #

      This is why I love this blog (besides the eye candies) and have recommended to my friends who are NOT into fashion. Reading FC’s words is always such a delight! :D

      • Fashion Critic May 10, 2012 at 21:35 #

        Thank you…and for the referrals ;)

    • Fashion Critic May 10, 2012 at 18:45 #

      these are funny…love the Mama Wintour Who? lol

  4. Sara May 10, 2012 at 18:42 #

    Spot on! “The Diva has left the building” haha. Love it.

  5. fola May 10, 2012 at 18:44 #

    love the award you gave Marc Jacobs!

  6. JulietDay May 10, 2012 at 18:44 #

    Since Karolína Kurková is best dressed at Met Gala and also a model, I really don’t understand how can Rosie Hunington-Whiteley be best dressed model at the event.
    But I can’t agree more with all awards ;)

    • Fashion Critic May 10, 2012 at 18:47 #

      Best dressed tops all…so of the remaining models Rosie is the best…quite simple really

      • JulietDay May 10, 2012 at 19:42 #

        okay, that makes sense :)

  7. Theresa May 10, 2012 at 18:45 #

    candice should have been best dressed model award!!

    • Fashion Critic May 10, 2012 at 18:46 #

      In my opinion Roise was the best. This isn’t bible…just my opinion.

      • lee May 10, 2012 at 19:22 #

        LOL FC I love how you respond to people.

      • Mary Jane Anderson May 10, 2012 at 19:30 #

        Hahaha very funny, as are those awards. Always a delight!

  8. glenn May 10, 2012 at 18:45 #

    Put Zac Pozen Back On Your Speed Dial Award & Underpants Awards are the best lol !!!!

  9. Magdalena May 10, 2012 at 18:52 #

    Thank you for your amazing coverage! I can’t stop refreshing your site:)

    • Fashion Critic May 10, 2012 at 19:06 #

      thanks x

  10. Ayb May 10, 2012 at 18:54 #

    I just love this post!!!!

  11. fromchi-town May 10, 2012 at 18:59 #

    LOL – loved this post. Loved the “Put Zac Posen back on your speed dial” award and the Marc Jacobs award. Thanks FC, for your outstanding coverage and commentary as usual!! Loved it.

    • Fashion Critic May 10, 2012 at 19:06 #

      those are my favourites too.

  12. Elly May 10, 2012 at 18:59 #

    Regardez: Carey’s dress for sale for Oxfam (if you have $1000 to spare!)

  13. Mariana May 10, 2012 at 19:05 #

    I love yours round up posts!!

  14. J May 10, 2012 at 19:06 #

    Who is the Right Guard award person?

    • Fashion Critic May 10, 2012 at 19:14 #

      Mia Wasikowska

  15. rebecca o May 10, 2012 at 19:12 #

    I totally agree with Emma Stone being the most disappointing. Why would an adult woman want to dress as a 10 year old girl. Makes no sense.

    • ciro May 11, 2012 at 17:03 #

      and the fact that she was one of the best dressed during the award season, everyone expected her to continue that

  16. Taylor May 10, 2012 at 19:22 #

    Great round up. The only thing deserving of an award on Beyonce’s dress is the train.

  17. TeuntjeVDW May 10, 2012 at 19:25 #

    What a funny post! Love it!

  18. EmmaWoodhouse May 10, 2012 at 19:29 #

    L-L-Love these awards, always :D So hilarious! Of this list, Carey, Karolina and Nina are my faves :)

  19. Zineb May 10, 2012 at 19:41 #

    I always look forward for the round-ups, they make me laugh :D
    I would’ve put for K-Stew ‘Best dressed celebrity in the world you’ve got to be kidding me’ award

  20. Aly May 10, 2012 at 19:52 #

    FC, what about post of MET Gala`s trends like feathers?

  21. Andrada May 10, 2012 at 19:55 #

    Brilliantly funny, as always! :)
    Thanks for your hard work!

  22. Kaiva May 10, 2012 at 20:27 #

    What I didn’t like about Beyonce dress was the body uit. The color just was wrong for her skin so it kinda ruined the dress for me as I really wanted to like it.

  23. mm May 10, 2012 at 20:40 #

    Love it. Great coverage, getting better every year. Thanks!

  24. Beta May 10, 2012 at 21:02 #

    :D :D jajaja
    great post!!!
    “put back zac posen on your speed dial” = awesome :D

    thanks for the great fashion posts :)!

  25. Foteini P. May 10, 2012 at 22:43 #

    ”I See London, I See France I See Someone’s Underpants Award” -> Crying my heart out!!!

    You are the best FC :P!!!! :D :D :D :D

    • Fashion Critic May 10, 2012 at 23:02 #

      ;) x

  26. SaraInes May 10, 2012 at 22:54 #

  27. CreoleLady May 10, 2012 at 23:03 #

    To FC – the fun, funny and fabulous award. I keep meaning to thank you for your fantastic coverage of the Met gala but you keep distracting me with more great posts, lol. I join the chorus of appreciation and am glad you share your fashion obsession with us.

    • Fashion Critic May 10, 2012 at 23:11 #

      Thank you for your lovely message…it was a great warm up for the main event…Cannes ;)

  28. Francois B May 10, 2012 at 23:45 #

    Haha, laughed so hard for Coco & Marc :D

  29. Gail May 11, 2012 at 00:50 #

    FC I must disagree with you, and that doesn’t happen often, but, Camilla Belle should have won for the “Best Dark Lip Award”

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2012 at 00:52 #

      I was going back and forth between the two…in the end it was a lucky dip ;)

  30. Jess2 May 11, 2012 at 01:34 #

    I couldn’t decide which I was looking forward to more, seeing the looks themselves or reading your round up FC, now I know it was definitely the round up. You always brighten my day :)
    I agree with all of your awards and the Marc Jacobs, Coco Rocha and Lea Michelle awards are HILARIOUS and spot on!! Your work is outstanding, can’t thank you enough :D x

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2012 at 07:12 #

      thank you for your continued support xxxx

      It brightens my day to brighten your day x

  31. lily May 11, 2012 at 03:09 #

    Yay Katharine is in your award.. So happy!! Giggling like a child lol

  32. Christine May 11, 2012 at 04:00 #

    LMAO. FC, girl you are too cute.

  33. B May 11, 2012 at 04:03 #

    Funny :)

    &thanks for the coverage.

  34. Jeremy May 11, 2012 at 06:06 #

    Great round-up! I actually think the best dressed model award should have gone to Chanel Iman or Stella Tenant. Rosie, for me, was Most Disappointing — if only because she’s typically SO utterly flawless and I was expecting so much more form her.

    100% agree with KK as Best Dressed overall. This was a gowwn that made people literally *GASP!*

  35. Emi May 11, 2012 at 06:13 #

    I agree with most of your awards, FC. When I saw Coco Rocha I thought “What?” but then I read that her suit was originally owned by Liz Taylor and she bought at the auction, so I understood the fit. And I appreciate it (and understand it) a bit more.

  36. roxana May 11, 2012 at 07:18 #

    i love your awards posts!

  37. Manuel May 11, 2012 at 08:26 #

    Ha ha ha the Marc Jacobs award is hilarious! Actually sounds more like a sleeping around award of the year ;)

  38. manja May 11, 2012 at 08:33 #

    This is my favorite part,your round ups,so funny and spot on.Thx for all your hard work,you are the best,and getting even better all the time.

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2012 at 10:21 #

      Thank u x

      It continues to be my pleasure x

  39. Niki May 11, 2012 at 09:08 #

    Hahahaha! Underpants! hehehe…

  40. Eimear May 11, 2012 at 09:20 #

    Elizabeth Banks looks like a spaceship.

  41. Zarine Mohideen May 11, 2012 at 10:23 #

    Excellent coverage, FC! You top yourself every year. Much love! :)

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2012 at 10:57 #

      Thank u my dear..,bring on Cannes x

  42. Vanie May 11, 2012 at 10:26 #

    Florence as the best dressed in McQueen Award…..It should have gone to The Queen Cate Blanchett!!!
    I loved the Marc Jacobs Award!!
    100% agree with KK as best dressed and Nina Dobrev’s Award!! And as always hilarious

  43. Anelia May 11, 2012 at 13:28 #

    Hey Fashion Critic :) I think Nina Dobrev was the best dressed celebrity,which one of all the looks did you like the most most most? :D
    My second best is “best use of embellishment award” and 3rd is Rihanna c(:

  44. katie May 11, 2012 at 15:02 #

    He he he very good FC, i love Marc Jacobs awards so well thought out!

  45. Nicole May 11, 2012 at 23:21 #

    I didn’t notice Mia’s dilemma until you voted her “best right gaurd award” How awkward…

  46. Manolia May 13, 2012 at 09:18 #

    super LOOOOOL totally agree on every award, but where is the worst dress though?
