Kate Hudson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katy Perry and Alessandra Ambrosio were among the stylish A-listers pushing the sartorial boundaries in everything from daring dresses and flirty frocks to fashion-forward jumpsuits and even shorts.
Which stars took a risk that paid off — and which fashion rebels missed the mark?
The night’s clear winner, Hudson was on fire, sizzling in a revealing red dress by Prabal Gurung. The figure-hugging gown’s plunging neckline left little to the imagination, but the draped cut-out sleeves kept the look from being all about Kate’s cleavage.
Ambrosio also rocked a sexy curve-hugging Zuhair Murad gown. The fitted corset and column silhouette highlighted the Victoria’s Secret model’s curves, while the train added just the right amount of drama, which was further heightened by the corseted back.
SJP took a different kind of risk, donning a vintage Chanel black jumpsuit. Though jumpsuits can be hard to pull off, the Sex and the City actress rocked the fashion-forward look with aplomb. A fitted bodice balanced out the black one-piece’s billowy bottoms and prevented the petite star from getting lost in the style. A tassel necklace added a modern finish to the monochromatic look.
Also shunning a dress in favor of a two-legged style, Rose McGowan, in short shorts and sheer tights, came up … well, short. While shorts can work for night, especially when worn with a fancier top and tights, the sequined jacket and sheer tights were more Rockette than red carpet.
Although we’re fans of Perry’s new sophisticated take on the feminine accents and candy-colored hues she favors, her dusty gray and pink floral dress was a step backward. The singer appeared to be stuck in limbo between the ladylike looks in her future and the girly costumes of her past, with girly accents galore — floral appliques, ruffled neckline and sparkly belt — decorating the more sophisticated silhouette.
