This is totally ruining our high over the SAG Awards best-dressed list, but it has to be done. Also, how is it possible that Anne Hathaway swings so wildly between getting it so right, and so wrong — nothing in between. Sadly, she got it so wrong at the awards show last night wearing a twee, frothy, half-sheer Giambattista Valli Couture dress that just didn’t do anything for us apart from making us say, “Why, Anne?” We do love her accessories in the form of her Jimmy Choo ‘Kalpa’ heels and her black Edie Parker clutch. We may be a tad harsh on Jessica Chastain as well — but it’s only because her people never seem to get fits right on her. The red McQueen gown maybe a beautiful, but it looks like it wants to crush her breasts, and to add insult to injury, it looks rumpled. We really don’t like the Harry Winston diamond necklace on her, either. It’s the wrong piece for the dress. Also, twee and in the same color, was Kaley Cuoco whose red lace Ramona Kaveeza dress made her look like a doily, even though her red velvet Giuseppe Zanotti heels gave her cred. Does anyone else think the new haircut with the bangs looks like a wig?
Rose Byrne was the wrong woman for her Valentino Resort 2013 gown because the fabric and the ruffles made her look matronly. And while her hair and makeup were sweet and retro, Claire Danes went in the opposite direction with deep maroon lips that just looked incredibly harsh on her. They put us off, and her black Givenchy didn’t exactly impress either. Neither did Julianne Moore‘s Chanel Couture Fall 2011 gown, which like Jessica’s, had a major fit problem as well. Let’s just say the bodice took its cues from the name of the awards show and made her look like she was sagging. There’s more on the list, so carry on to the gallery to have a look.

The color yellow didn’t do too well on the Emmys carpet, but how did its citrus counterpart, orange, fare? Not too good, either, sadly. There were a few exceptions, though. Ginnifer Goodwin and Padma Lakshmi‘s gorgeous tangerine gowns — both by Monique Lhuillier — landed them on the best-dressed list for the night. Cat Deely worked it in a one-shouldered dramatic gown that looked like it may have been a Monique number as well. But that’s as far as the awesome orange went. A few came close. Nancy O’Dell‘s two-toned gown may have worked had it not been for that stip of cream shoulder strap and her distracting earrings. Gretchen Mol‘s gown started okay at the top but draped listlessly on her body. Her orange bag and heels made the whole thing too matchy-matchy as well. Jessica Lange — how we love you. We just wish your gown fit better! Have a look — along with all the other orange gowns — in our gallery below.

When Nancy O’Dell announced Friday that she’d be leaving Access Hollywood after 13 years, her rep stated that “she will continue on with projects as a broadcast entertainment journalist.” But aside from an already-scheduled hosting gig for NBC’s “Tournament of Roses Parade’ on New Year’s Day,” no specifics were available. Until now.
The FABlife has just learned that Nancy O’Dell will host this year’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards red carpet pre-show, to be broadcast live Jan. 15 at 8PM EST on VH1. If it’s true, as People reported, that Nancy felt uncomfortable with Access Hollywood’s “more sensational direction,” then participating in this major awards show should be right up her alley.
Check back on Jan. 15 as we live-blog Critics’ Choice with our sister site VH1 and writers for The New York Times, The L.A. Times, PopEater, The Huffington Post, Best Week Ever and Refinery 29.
