I'll start by awarding "best dressed" to my hostess for the evening, Wendy Brandes. Wendy greeted me in a black tee shirt, black gym shorts and cozy slippers! She's never looked better. LOL... kidding. It was that kind of evening -- the kind where it's best to stay indoors sipping Champagne, watching the hilarity that is Ricky Gervais in the comfort of your own home on the comfort of your own couch, safe from the wintry chill!!
Ricky should have busted out some of his dance moves last night
Okay, back to the show! If I were to select a winner from last night's event, it would be Francisco Costa. Who, some of you might ask? Shame on you! His name should be as familiar to you as Giorgio Armani or Marc Jacobs or... Calvin Klein... because he IS Calvin Klein. Well, not literally, of course, but Mr. Costa has headed up the Calvin Klein Collection since 2003 when Mr. Klein retired. Costa dressed my number one pick last night, Claire Danes as well as Emma Stone (who never looked better).
Olivia Wilde looked stunning, but that was sure a whole lotta dress! Co-presenter, Robert Pattinson didn't know where to stand when the two were on stage together. There was just no room for him and the poor chap had to strain his neck to reach the mic. Under her Marchesa dress (could have been just about anything), Ms. Wilde wore the most fabulous Louboutin stilettos!
My pick for the boys is, well, a BOY. Jesse Eisenberg looked simply adorable and perfectly put together in Dolce & Gabbana. Generally, I think the men did well last night... Ryan Gosling in Ferragammo, James Franco (a.k.a. my boyfriend) in Gucci and Robert Downey Jr. broke the mold, as per usual, and wore a grey Prada suit. Fantastic. And Michael Douglas was wearing Canali, but who really cares. He just looked GREAT and healthy. His opening line about a "standing o" was brilliant!
Susan and Robert Downey
One final comment... I do love Tilda Swinton and appreciate that she has her own sense of style. I would be happy to dress her! Tilda wore Haider Ackermann before anyone knew who the hell he was. Last night (in Jil Sander), I thought she looked quite striking, but also bore quite a striking resemblance to David Bowie. I mean, she was definitely channelling 70's Bowie!
Tilda Swinton and David Bowie... or is it David Bowie and Tilda Swinton?
