We'll probably take some heat for this, but we can't call Kate Hudson's Versace gown an outright hit. It fits divinely, but the color blends so totally into her skin tone and hair color that the overall impression is weirdly monochromatic.

Winona Ryder makes a red carpet comeback in this elegant Dolce & Gabanna gown. We love the look of the jeweled drop earrings with a bare neck.

Rosie Huntington-Whitelye's face-framing highlights and soft-pink makeup are the standout elements here. The black dress is rather workaday, but the two-toned belt is creativ and plays well off the graphic center stripe.

Though we like Kyra Sedgwick's shorter hair, the rest of her look could use some help. The top looks like yoga wear and the skirt is at that awkward, in-between length.

Lucy Lawless revisits the outfit she wore to her 1980s middle school dance.

Something about the draping and near-neon color of Martha Plimpton's dress is quite appealing. But those cobalt pumps have got to go!

Amy Adams' deep wine dress — paired with black suede booties, no less — strikes us as a little too fall/winter for August.

Zac Efron evokes a cool Rat Pack style in this tieless, slim-fit tux.

Though we think Nicole Richie's Brian Atwood shoes are killer (the gold accent is actually a zipper that wraps all the way around to the heel), the dress doesn't quite live up to the expectations set by the shoes.

The scalloped edging on Stephanie Pratt's dress seems more appropriate for a child's outfit and those shoes turquoise shoes should never be worn again. With anything.

We are totally sold on Ashley Greene's delicately ruffled magenta gown. The bland beige shoes are a miss, but we feel so strongly about the dress that we choose to ignore them.

If you look closely, Kirsten Dunst's gown is essentially a trench coat with the sleeves cut off — a debatable design choice. But the flattering shade of blue and element of creativity won us over.

Isla Fisher brings nothing new to the table in this red lace dress with beige pumps. We've seen it all summer.

We're not generally in favor of exposed midriffs on the red carpet, but we are going out on a limb in favor of Ali Larter's outfit. It's got a little vintage pinup, a little je na sais quoi...

Big hair, deep-V neckline, high slit, ruffles — Lea Michele just looks like she's trying too hard.

We love the color scheme and pattern on Kristen Bell's unique dress. The black strappy shoes perfectly complement the black trim on the dress.

Kathy Griffin puts to rest the notion that redheads should not wear pink. The floral shoes work well.

Serena Williams should only wear Victoria Beckham dresses from now on. This may be the most flattering frock we've ever seen her wear, and paired with killer Louboutins — well, what more is there to say?

Bella Heathcote's retro party dress walks the costume line, but the thoroughly modern hair and makeup keep it this side of fashionable. Love those ladylike-yet-sexy pointy stilletos.

Dania Ramirez looks amazing in this super-sleek Rolando Santana gown.
The tight bun and hoop earrings really complete the look.

Eva Amurri's floral Tory Burch dress is cute and flattering, but what really makes the look are these perforated T-straps.

Kate Beckinsale's gown is a sharp, modern interpretation of a '50s-style glamor gown.

The single sleeve and flounced hemline up the cheese factor on Heidi Klum's Michael Kors dress.

We have no quibble with Kelly Osbourne's Vivienne Westwood dress — the wild pattern and corseted silhouette really work for her figure and style. But we still think the lavender hair does nothing for complexion. Plus, those shoes are tacky.

Kathy Griffin takes the neon trend too far in this lime fiasco and she makes it all worse with fuchsia shoes.

Jennie Garth looks lickable in this color-blocked dress in sherbet pastels, accented with citrus yellow at the neck and waist.

Brittany Snow's sparkly cigarette pants and silky top are formal enough for the red carpet — and a nice change of pace from gowns and dresses. We love the clutch and the style of the shoes, but would have preferred black. Rust paired with red makes our eyes bleed.

Nikki Reed's working a cute look that we think you'll be seeing a lot more of come fall: a cropped leather jacket over a dress.

We really don't think anything could be more flattering on Viola Davis than this ivory Vivienne Westwood. Cut, color — all of it is working. The coppery metallic sandals are the perfect accent.

Though we are weary of the lace trend, Elsa Pataky makes the best of it by choosing a dress with strong graphic bands that rein in the frilly factor.

Jessica Biel, though generally fashionable, often looks rather bland to our eyes. This gown, however, brings out that edgy side that we know is lurking in there somewhere. We especially like the application of gold sequins for the sparkle, rather than the expected black.

Ariel Winter looks adorable in this simple Kate Spade minidress.
The sparkly silver Peter Pan collar and grown-up black pumps dress everything up just enough.

We just can't get past the fact that it looks like Sophia Bush left the house without any pants.

Christina Hendricks wears cute, current versions of the style that works so well for her on Mad Men: pencil skirts and flirty blouses.

Kate Walsh's gown, clutch and shoes all scream '70s bridesmaid.

We love the subtlety of the white-on-white polka dots on Heather McComb's dress. The skinny black belt and leopard clutch lend a little edge.
