Miss

The Good Wife's Archie Panjabi is wearing a teal satin dress is way too '80s prom. All she needs is a corsage.
25 of 51 Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic

Miss

We appreciate taking risks, but Julie Bowen is too bright in her neon-green strapless frock and teased 'do.

Miss

It's tough to match your hair to your dress, but Kelly Osbourne pulled it off. (We're not a fan.) We love that she's showing off her slim figure, but the color and fabric is all wrong.

Hit

Homeland's Morena Baccarin looks gorgeous in her strapless slate dress with a plunging neckline.

Hit
