Miss

The Golden Gloves? Mrs. George Clooney misfires on one of her first red carpet appearances with elbow-length accessories that distract from her gorgeous dress.

Miss

Amy Adams' pale lavender one-strapped gown washes her out.

Miss

They sure know how to host, but Tina Fey's poufy dress and the pockets on Amy Poehler's blue long-sleeved gown aren't flattering. Good thing they have costume changes planned!

Miss

Michelle Monaghan misses the mark with a spaghetti-strapped black and silver sequined dress that does nothing for her figure.

Miss

The Affair star Maura Tierney looks drab in a loose-fitting, belted purple gown.

Miss

Rosamund Pike takes a risk with a white Vera Wang gown with a plunging neckline, but the revealing gown is not flattering.

Miss

Jennifer Lopez's plunging neckline and extremely high slit leaves little to the imagination, and we’re not sure about the cape.

Miss

Kristen Wiig looks like a flower child with this off-the-shoulder number.

Miss

We really want to like Lorelai Linkletter's dress, since we loved Boyhood so much, but alas, this Wednesday Addams-gone-wrong, bell-sleeved atrocity will never be in fashion no matter what the era.

Miss

Quick, we need a doily! Orange Is the New Black star Dascha Polanco comes to the rescue with this white lace gown that should be adorning our grandma's table in the foyer.

Miss

Although we don't expect Emilia Clarke to always look like a Khaleesi, the Game of Thrones actress frumps it up with this blah navy off-the-shoulder gown with ... is that a cape?!

Miss

Well, at least Orange Is the New Black star Uzo Aduba knows she looks good in bright yellow because that's the nicest thing about this gown. Unfortunately, the perforated beach-coverup look and odd material looks far too casual for this event.

Miss

Ariel Winter is still trying to find that balance between her age -- 17 -- and her mature curves, but sadly, this white dress is not it. We'll give her points on the hair though.

Miss

Adorable Boardwalk Empire actress Kelly MacDonald is unfortunately a bit too under-dressed in this cute, but uninspiring LBD. Some judicious accessorizing and a different hairstyle could have transformed the whole ensemble.

Miss

Taryn Manning has hit upon the worst color, cut and makeup for a public function. This ghastly ensemble does her no favors ... unless she's auditioning for a springtime Tim Burton flick?

Miss

Pharrell copies his Oscars shorts-suit look, this time with a gray number that matches his wife's skin-tight gray onesie. We love you, Pharrell, but we might take the Arbys hat over this.

Miss

Rihanna is serving up red velvet cupcake realness with this Giambattista Valli ballgown.

18 of 31 Mario Anzuoni/Reuters /Landov

Miss

We're not all about this dress simply because Meghan Trainor deserves better than this black sheer cover-up.

19 of 31 Mario Anzuoni/Reuters /Landov

Miss

What happened to you, Billy Ray Cyrus? This messy, all-black look with obviously dyed locks and a creepy goatee is just wrong.

Miss

Ciara's fluffy dress looks like someone took a pair of scissors to the fabric and wrapped it around her.

Miss

Jane Fonda gets credit for taking a fashion risk, but this emerald green jumpsuit transports us back to the '70s... and not in a good way.

22 of 31 Mario Anzuoni/Reuters /Landov

Miss

Jenny Lewis' multicolored suit and sunglasses are an odd choice. (Besides, she'll always be Hannah Neffler to us.)

23 of 31 Mario Anzuoni/Reuters /Landov

Miss

Joy Villa wears a dress made fromrecyclable fencing material, and while we applaud the eco-friendliness, we're still averting our eyes.

24 of 31 Mario Anzuoni/Reuters /Landov

Miss

Kim Kardashian is wearing the fanciest gold bathrobe we've ever seen outside of the boxing ring.

25 of 31 Mario Anzuoni/Reuters /Landov

Miss

Madonna looks so Madonna in this Givenchy matador-themed ice-skating costume. But it's just all too much: On top of that baroque look she wears leather gloves, a birdcage veil and those seriously spiky heels.

Miss

For just 20, Lorelai Linklater's dress (and that high slit!) seem a little too risqué.

Miss

Gwyneth Paltrow looks all dainty and glowing, but were the big pink ruffles really necessary?

28 of 31 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Miss

Solange Knowles looks like she took a huge red jersey sheet and unsuccessfully tried to tailor it to her body.

29 of 31 Jason Merritt/Getty Images

Miss

Chrissy Teigen's dress is a mess of different fabrics and an unflattering cut.

30 of 31 Jeff Vespa/WireImage

Miss

Viola Davis can, and has, done so much better, than this baggy satin off-the-shoulder gown.

31 of 31 Steve Granitz/WireImage

Miss

Is Lady Gaga wearing dish-washing gloves?
