The Directors’ Guild Awards are a sophisticated, highbrow affair. They lack the flash of a Teen Choice Awards or a Country Music Awards, which means we lack the creatively horrible fashion that normally turns up on those worst dressed lists. But among the celebrities that came out last night, there was a surprising amount of event-inappropriate or just boring dresses. Even Helen Mirren wound up on the worst dressed list, and we did not think that would ever happen.
Anna Kendrick‘s dress is cute in theory, but the fit is off and the color clashes with the background in most of the pictures we’ve seen. It’s also at least 50 percent more casual than the next least dressed-up person at the event, which is always embarrassing.
Maia Mitchell decided to marry the first director she saw last night. Why else would she show up in a sexy wedding dress? Also, her half-up half-down bouffant hairstyle looks exactly like the one we just saw Lady Gaga wearing ironically.
Sandra Oh‘s dress is a dated, unflattering sack. We love her hair, though.
How did Helen Mirren wind up on this list!? Helen Mirren is one of the sexiest, most glamorous red-carpet dressers there is. This busy, boring, glittery dress would not land most people on a worst-dressed list, but we know what Helen Mirren can do on a red carpet, and this is probably the dampest look we’ve ever seen on her.
