Padma Lakshmi's multi-strapped purple gown is nothing to write home about, but the mess of red roses against her hip is another story. It looks like a growth in dire need of removal.

Miss

Patricia Arquette tries to be trendy with the ever-popular asymmetrical dress, but the one-shoulder look should never be done with a solitary and massive shoulder pad.

Hit

How I Met Your Mother's Alyson Hannigan looks great in this black, tiered strapless mermaid gown. The simplicity of the look helps showcase her hair and awesome post-baby body.

Hit

Debra Messing rarely disappoints on the red carpet, and this one-shoulder red gown continues that tradition. We love the gown's unique silhouette, and her hair and makeup are stunning.

Miss

The majority of Lisa Edelstein's navy blue halter dress is fairly plain-Jane, but perhaps someone should let her know there is a whole lot of toilet paper hanging from the back of it.

Hit

30 Rock star Katrina Bowden looks elegant and age-appropriate in her strapless teal gown. We're particularly fond of the ruffled detailing and the fact that former Project Runway winner Christian Siriano designed the dress.

Miss

We were all about Christina Hendricks' form-fitting, navy blue dress — until she turned around to reveal a tiered, black train. Is she trying to channel her inner-Elvira?

MissDid Jon Cryer just come from a Harry Potter convention? The Two and a Half Men star took an unconventional route with a yellow-striped sweater vest under his pinstriped black suit. Not loving the mismatched tie, either.

Miss

TV Guide Network Fashion Team's Best Body Pick

Hit: Blake Lively reminds us how beautiful she is in this red gown. The hair doesn't really wow us, but it's hard to notice with the plunging neckline. Needless to say, Lively earns Fashion Team's pick for Best Body on the red carpet.

Miss

Miss

It's hard to say what we dislike most about Angela Kinsey's red mermaid dress: that it looks like it's made of paper-mache, or the way a different fabric is used to call out her breasts.
26 of 34 Mathew Imaging/WireImage.com

Miss

Leighton Meester looks 15 years older than she is in this layered white gown. The severe knots upon her shoulder are too dramatic and her hips appear to be much larger than they are.
27 of 34 Mathew Imaging/WireImage.com

Hit

Grey's Anatomy star Sandra Oh goes with a straight strapless cut that flatters her figure. Note the gown's intricate embroidery.
