Saturday night the Los Angeles County Museum of Art held a star-studded gala entitled “The Unmasking” and it served as the opening of the a new exhibition named after the owners of Fiji Water and Pom Wonderful, Lynda and Stewart Resnick. Many celebrities were in attendance, including the three young ladies I have chosen to do this post on.
Kim Kardashian has yet to fail me as of yet with her fashion choices. Ms. Kardashian donned a red, one shoulder Georges Hobeika gown. Complete with elegant hair and make up that accentuated her eyes, but wasn’t over the top, Kim looked stunning and outshone most on the red carpet.
Now I was very conflicted with this category because I wasn’t sure which of the two ladies to put here, but I opted with Nicole Richie…and her hair and make up were the only things keeping her from “The Ugly” spot. A close up of her face left me very pleased; her hairstyle was up, slightly messy but simple in contrast with the busyness of her dress. Also, her choice to pick one feature on her face to play with (her eye make up is amazing!) and keep the rest simple, really upgraded her overall appearance. Nicole Richie is usually spot on when it comes to dressing up or down, but I think (at least on her anyways) this fall 2009 Marchesa gown is a bit MUCH. Perhaps it’s just the giant black ribbon that is awkwardly knotted at her shoulder and waist, but whatever it is there is one thing it is not; working for her!
Christina, Christina, Christina. This look isn’t essentially bad, but upon further inspection, i.e. seeing a close up on her face, this get up was pushed into “The Ugly” category. The pop diva looks very voluptuous in the pink-toned Atelier Versace gown (which we are all for because she usually looks VERY skinny) but her signature platinum locks styled very wild and curly paired with her overly bronzed face make up and almost invisible eyebrows just were not doing anything for me…except make me frown. She just looks tired and over it.
