People's Choice Awards 2014 Red Carpet Breakdown

Did you watch the People's Choice Awards this Wednesday night?
For some odd reason, I had little to no interest in watching the actual show...
but of course, I had an overwhelming interest in the red carpet photos that follow any good awards show.
Here are some of my favorite... and not so favorite, looks from The People's Choice Awards.
Anna Faris wore this incredible Naem Khan pantsuit!
This is my favorite look of the night. Not only because it is an incredible design, but because it seems so unexpected for Anna.
It's sleek, elegant and understated. 
Her and makeup compliments the look flawlessly and her lack of accessories is just right!
This is the perfect storm.
Nina Dobrev and her genetically gifted self, styled by the genius Ilaria Urbinati, in a Jenny Packham gem.
It is rare the the dress looks better on the red carpet than it does on the runway, but this is truly one of those times.
The way her team pulled it all together is really what stands out to me. 
The strapy, mirrored sandals and clutch picks up the metallic beading on the dress without looking to matchy-matchy.
Her hair is pulled off her shoulders to  feature the gorgeous neckline and her slightly smokey eye adds a it more edge to this look.
All in all, I'm in love.
I feel that Britney gets bonus points when she nails it because well.....she SO often does not. 
However, I do truly love this nude and beaded Mikael D mini. 
We've come to expect a lot of leg from Miss. Spears, but high neck and full sleeve create the perfect balance.
 
Jennifer Hudson in Kaufman Franco! Oh my word, does her body look perfect.
The rouching is placed perfectly to enhances the gorgeous shape of her body.
Her stylist nailed it with the simple mirrored cuff. I'm not obsessed with the shoes, but not distracted by them either.
All in all, I think she looks young and fresh.
I'm slightly torn on Naya Rivera in Michael Kors.
The shoes are perfect, the color blocking looks fresh (especially for a trend we've seen for the last 3 years) but that back panel is throwing me off. 
I don't hate it, but I don't I want it there either. I'm just confused by it, I guess.
The styling however, is perfection. 
I love her new blonde locks, sultry makeup and barely there heels.
And this is where it starts to go south for me.
Jessica is wearing Jason Wu. This is one of those dresses that I bet looked incredible in person, but loses a bit of it's special-ness in photos. 
If the light doesn't hit the banding just right it reminds me of a 90's Guess Ad with one of those denim bustier dresses.
The lace up sides and the zipper front just read super casual to me.
Again, she looks beautiful, I just think the dress reads too casual in photos.
Alright, I love this little sisterly moment they're having here, but that's about it.
EACH element of EACH look is great, just not together.
Black and White is a huge trend and I am generally a fan, but there is something odd about the singular, bottom panel.
It almost looks like a jumpsuit, especially with the front slit.
I would have liked this Rene Caovilla dress, if the whole skirt was black and it was paired with a killer statement necklace.
On to Kat Dennings who wore David Meister.
I LOVE the shape and detail of this dress and I LOVE the rose print, just not together.
I would have enjoyed the floral print if it was on a sleek, fitted dress (much like Nina Dobrev's)
And I think this dress would have been much less over powering in a bold color.
Kat has a gorgeous body and the combination of the big dress and the big print was not flattering.
Oh man, Malin Akerman wins for my least favorite look.
I've attached the runway image so you can see what the real problem is here.
It is NOT the design of this Cushnie Et Ochs frock, it's the fit.
As you can see on the left there should not be that much boob! It isn't low cut, it's just super wide cut.
It throws off the proportions of the dress, making the dress look and the woman look awful.
Proper fitting is muy importante!!
