Okay everyone, it’s happening. The People’s Choice Awards are airing this very evening, and we’ll be bringing you pictures straight from the red carpet in real time.
As it happens, I don’t really like awards shows all that much. They end up being pretty boring and formulaic, and our only respite is when something goes horribly wrong. I do, however, love red carpets. Simply put, red carpets just have it all–elegant gowns, uncomfortable banter, crisp suits, and the occasional formal cowboy hat, if we’re really lucky.
We’ll be updating frequently throughout the night, so grab yourself a glass of wine and keep checking back for more red carpet looks and our immediate reactions. It’s going to be a great night.
And the first arrivals are here!
Just say no to one shoulder, long-sleeved dresses, Lucy Hale.
I see your pointed toed, neon shoes, Rocsi Diaz. No.
Ross Matthews looks dapper even if his jacket is too wide for him.
I would have been 100% on board with Melissa Joan Hart‘s printed carpet if it were all one length. I love you, MJH.
Keltie Knight showed up in formal polka dots! Okay!
Ming-Na Wen wore a lovely foreskin.
Greer Grammer brings her A-game. I really wish they had sold that dress at Windsor so I could have worn it to my crush’s Bar Mitzvah.
Here’s Dennings all alone–she’s so shockingly beautiful that it almost compensates for the fact that the dress is just a little too much…roses?
Next up: sequins, Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum, and an awesome witch.
I like Jillian Rose Reed‘s froofy dress, but I do not care for those shoes.
Okay, I’m starting to get embarrassed about how many of these people I’ve had to google to figure out who the hell they are. Sadie Calvano is one of those people.
Olga Fonda is wearing an approximation of a dress.
Okay Molly Tarlov, you big weirdo. I think she looks amazing–like a sexy witch who just wants to read poetry with you.
Heidi Klum really went for it: severe hair, pointy, embellished shoes, sequin clusters, giant earrings, and an insouciant shoulder flourish. You do you, Klum.
Tell me I’m not looking at a bandage dress that zips all the way up. Hello, Jessica Alba?
Malin Akerman! Who did this to you? GIVE US A NAME!
Nina Dobrev does sequins and stripper heels right.
Bailee Madison gets a nomination for best dressed.
Next up: a vampy sexy Queen Latifah, a white beaded pant suit, and Chris Pratt making my heart flutter.
Sara Bareilles does the Wednesday Addams thing…wait. Are those lips on shoes? Okay, best shoes of the night, hands down.
I don’t know. Sure, it’s a beaded, white, matching, pant-and-shirt set that my grandma would wear to formal Bingo, I actually kind of love this on Anna Faris.
WAIT! Look at this freaking picture of them together:
Somebody slap me I’m unable to deal with this.
Queen Latifah, you beauty sexy vampire sex machine.
No but seriously, are these awful neon pointy heels a thing that’s going to be around for a while? I love Sandra Bullock‘s hair and make up but the dress seems more appropriate for Million Moms luncheon.
Allison Williams. Blah.
Allison Janney could wear a swim suit and I’d be like “why didn’t everyone else wear swim suits?”
Naya Rivera just might be pulling this mullet dress off.
Melissa Rauch announces her partnership with Pepto-Bismol.
Jennifer Hudson looks great in all white as always, but what the hell is happening with her shoes?
Oh, come on, Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Ian Somerhalder‘s suit is great, but I wanna smack that pervy smile right off his face.
That about wraps things up over here! I wish the best of luck to my poor colleague who will have to put together a best dressed list tomorrow morning.
