CBS Upfront Presentation Brings Out A Parade Of Ladies: Cobie Smulders, Kat Dennings Smolder

2012 CBS Upfronts Presentation

Considering that Fox and NBC networks just had their upfront presentations earlier this week, we had a feeling that CBS wouldn’t be far behind. We were right. The CBS Upfronts Presentation went down in New York yesterday and it seemed that the ladies ruled the roost. Cobie Smulders led the way in a white Rebecca Minkoff “Mistral” dress with cutouts and cheeky red pumps. Apparently, her earrings were designed by Krysten Ritter for JewelMint to benefit Autism Speaks. How I Met Your Mother, FTW! We bet she’s in the best shape of her life after having to fit into that unforgiving catsuit she wore through The Avengers. It was also great to see Lucy Liu, looking impossibly tiny, but fit, in a burgundy Marios Schwab slip.

Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs — the 2 Broke Girls — looked great posing together. We just can’t understand why Kat won’t smile more? She was a knockout in a black dress and nude pumps but wouldn’t stop pouting for some strange reason. Seriously, every photograph we saw didn’t have a hint of a grin in it. Luckily, her co-star Beth, made up for her in the sunshine department, while wearing a lovely royal blue sheath. To see who else attended, you’re going to have to click through our gallery, but we promise you … it’ll be worth it.

Some Sour Notes On The Academy Of Country Music Awards Red Carpet

We’re so chuffed with our best-dressed at the Academy Of Country Music Awards list that we almost didn’t have the heart to whip up a worst-dressed version. LeAnn Rimes wore a Stella McCartney dress which Nicole Kidman had worn the longer version of last year, which some of you loved. We still don’t like it. We’ll even concede the Nicole version to you, but this one worn by LeAnn just doesn’t want us to like it! Joining her on the list of shame is Sara Evans whose pink satin gown sadly looks crushed and gaudy. Satin can work against you that way!

We would have liked Beth Behrs beige gown had it not been for that very twee oversized bodice bow. Same case with Grace Potter, who we want to love, but whose pantsuit looks too tight and she looks choked by her choker. Then we have Nancy O’Dell whose scarlet gown pops really nicely against her skin tone, but it’s ruined by that weird sash at the hip. Less is more! Unless you’re Martina McBride. Because her two-tone sheath just fell short amidst the gowns and frocks. Don’t get us wrong. There’s nothing like a fab cocktail dress at an awards show. But the one she wore did not distinguish itself in any way. See what we’re talking about in the gallery below.
