Diane Guerrero


Best known for her role on the hit TV series Orange is the New Black, Guerrero walked the red carpet in this satin floor-length dress. She looked elegant with her slicked-back locks and classy dress but we think she could have had just a bit more fun with her look. You’re only young once!

Cate Blanchett


Is a dress? Is it a skirt? Is it a suit? The Australian actress always looks flawless but we’re not quite sure what to make of this sequinned get-up. There’s nothing wrong with a little sparkle but this unusual outfit just left us feeling confused.

Busy Phillips


Did the late seventies make a comeback? Did we not get the memo? Busy, the usually stylish blonde actress, wore this flared pantsuit by designer Christian Siriano to the evening’s festivities. If the ensemble had been made in a more subtle fabric we might have had a different opinion but this shiny teal suit gets a ‘no’ from us.

Laura Harrier


Laura Harrier is one of the lesser known faces to have attended the evening’s awards but we’re pretty sure this rising talent is someone to look out for. She wore this shirt, blazer and pant ensemble. The look is chic, easy but perhaps a little too laid back for a fashion award ceremony… what do you think?

We are huge fans of the fabulous Miss Ross but we’re feeling unsure of her look from this year’s award show. Her make up and hair are effortlessly stylish but the pale pink ruffled dress does little to enhance her physique.

Miss Harlow has come a long way from being one of the many contestants on America’s Next Top Model. Harlow has become one of fashion’s rising names and she seldom disappoints in the style department.

Carmen Carrera


New Jersey native Carerra made a splash with this bold burnt orange dress and matching eye shadow. She most certainly has the abs to pull off the look but just because you can does not always mean you should. Sadly, this look doesn’t quite make our best dressed list.

Fashion would not be what it is today without the seemingly ageless and infinitely fabulous Naomi Campbell. The supermodel wore this fringed red number.

Oh, Whoopie. We’ll celebrate any lady who makes bold and risky fashion choices but it’s difficult to applaud when your eyes are being assaulted by so much bright pink. We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, just because it has a designer label does not mean you’ll look good in it…

As per usual, the award-winning actress left the crowds stunned with this bold, fashion-forward look.
