Nicole Richie, Christina Aguilera, Kat De Luna And Co. Ensure Black Gowns Tank At The ALMA’s

Black Gowns At The ALMA Awards

While our best-dressed at the ALMA Awards list was surprising, the not-so-best dressed list also has some unexpected entries. And what all of them had in common was that all of them messed up wearing, what normally is our favorite shade, black. Nicole Richie has no business being anything but fabulously attired. We get what she was going for in this black, semi-sheer Mathieu Mirano dress with gold accents — haute couture, edgy. Unfortunately, the black and gold texturing on the front of the dress looks like it’s eating her alive. Love the makeup and hair, though! Naya Rivera‘s Dolce & Gabbana pant suit would have been good idea if she has paid attention to the fit. Are we feeling the raccoon eyes too? Not too sure about that. Maybe with different hair. Then there was Christina Aguilera, and we will defend her against anyone who says anything about her weight. Stop hating on her curves. We’re not feeling her styling, that’s all. The peroxide hair with the the purple tips. The caked makeup that looks about two inches thick. The way OTT heels. She would have worked that black Michael Kors gown with the sexy lacy cutouts had she pared back everything else. Kat Deluna, on the other had should have picked a better dress, and a better makeup artist to do her justice. That gown with the ruffled slit does not work. Nor does co-host of the evening, Eva Longoria‘s, who should have stuck with the Monique Lhuillier gown she wore upon arrival. What’s up with those patterned sheer swirly’s on the lower half of the gown? And while we’re at it, what’s up with Roselyn Sanchez‘s crazy bun?  Click through the gallery to find out what we’re talking about.

The 5 Very Unexpected Best-Dressed Picks At The ALMA Awards, Plus Two Maybe Additions

Best-Dressed At The ALMA Awards

We know, we know. Zoe Saldana is almost always on every best-dressed list so her inclusion in our top five at the ALMA Awards, held in Pasadena, California yesterday, is no surprise. This dusty rose Gucci Resort 2013 gown is ace on her, even though we can see most of her sternum. The color, the silhouette and the Grecian drapes are perfect on her. Brian Atwood shoes and Irene Neuwirth jewelery complete the story. And here’s where it gets unexpected. Also going the Grecian route, was Dania Ramirez who wore an emerald strappier version that was flattering, romantic and sexy at the same time. And completing the Grecian triad, was Bella Thorne who wore a scarlet, strapless Bibhu Mohapatra dress with Swarovski jewelry. Absolutely lovely, and we love the slightly ruffled, asymmetrical hem.

Then there was Madeleine Stowe who knocked it clean out of the ballpark in a striking black sequined column with a beautiful cuff and a slicked-back ponytail. How is this woman 54-years old? Rounding up the list was a very quirky but retro-gorgeous Christian Serratos whose optical illusion monochromatic dress nailed it. We were very clear that these five ladies needed to be on the best-dressed list. But there were two more celebrities who we just couldn’t make our minds up about. Read more…
