I know the pictures have been posted, but I have my own captions...



Beyonce's "How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days" dress. She may be a fantastic performer, but designing is not her or mommy Beyonce's strong suit. The outfits Destiny's Child wore early in their career are show-toppingly tacky. Then I read Beyonce's own review in Allure and she thought they looked great!



I second that she looks like a fool. This "ladylike but quirky" thing is not working. Enough with the tulle skirts and bewilderingly large hairdo's (copying "In the Mood for Love," perhaps?).



Natalie Portman has a great tan. The heels are from Stella McCartney. The dress is bleh. Move over Zac Posen, New York will embrace new designing talents Derek Lam & Jeffery Chow.



Dowdy, as is Donna Karan's AW 04 collection.

Cindrella's ugly, mean step-sisters. They look about 40 y.o. I remembered seeing a picture of their couture debut and thinking that they looked fresh and classier than the Hilton sisters. What happened?



Michael Kors is the dual winner of the night, taking home both the awards for women's design and men's design. So it is no wonder that many of the attendees showed up in Michael Kors. But these two dresses have the ugliest cut-outs that messed up proportions, even though Aerin Lauder has no figure to speak of in the first place. Put some color on your face, hon'--you're the granddaughter of cosmetic giant Estee Lauder and the vp of marketing of the company.



Not a bad dress, but the tan is awful. Total arrogance.



Eve is about as clueless as Beyonce in terms of fashion.

Glad to see Jacquetta Wheeler taking a break from her studying. She is sorely missed on the runway (by me, at least). The dress is prob. vintage, but the cut of the shoulder reminds me of last season's YSL.



Just what does Molly Sims have to do with high fashion? The dress is a combo of rugs and table linen. It's really not Michael Kors's better collection, and I am perplexed that he won two awards for this.



Too casual, and I remember seeing Karolina wearing the dress else where before. The dress she wore to the Costume Institute's gala is amazing though. Never found out who made it.



Miucia Prada, anti-glitz?

Not sure why Narciso brings Mrs. Seinfield along with him to recent fashion events. He can do so much better than a socialite (with a notorious post-honeymoon divorce). Plus, the dress is too low-key and almost identical to the Oscar de la Renta number Catherine Zeta Jones wore to the Golden Globes this yr.



Kristen Davis is beautiful and classy when she doesn't try to force camera-ready smile. She looks great here as she did in previous events wearing Lanvin. The dress was worn by Isabeli Fontana on the runway and became the highlight of Michael Kors' western-influenced AW04 collection, even though the collection was more Ralph Lauren than Michael Kors.



For a designing duo that tries very hard to create the looks of the season, Proenza Schouler is often out of sync with trends. Their high-waisted designs can only be worn by a limited number of body types, and this girl clearly is not one of them.

I could easily mistake Betsey Johnson for Sarah Jessica Parker. Behnaz Sarafpour seems to be back in her element after a disastrously futuristic SS04 collection.



Mandy Moore, feeling competitive with skin-baring teen-queen-of-the-moment Lindsay Lohan, maybe? She can do much better than this shapeless, darb-colored dress by the unhip heir to Calvin Klein.



Grecian is a recycled idea, but she looks good here. One of the best dressed along with Jacquetta Wheeler.



This dress looked beautiful on the Carolina Herrera spring runway, but certainly not here.

Lisa Airan's style is overrated. She managed to choose one of the few ugly dresses on the J. Mendel runway.



Cynthia Rowley in her own design. First we have underfed models; now designers feel compelled to lose weight too.

There are more pictures at Style.com, but most of them are ridiculous & on par with Costume Institute's Gala appearances.

Selma's dress is refreshingly cute!

Caroline Murphy is one of the best dressed at this event in my opinion!

Mandy Moore
looks awesome, she NEVER looks bad! I am so used to seeing her look perfect, it's getting boring!

I love Alek's dress, flattering cut! She looks great!

Eve, Sarah Jessica Parker, Karolina, Kristin Davis and Beyonce could have done sooooo much better. They all look awfull !

Selma Blair's dress is Isaac Mizrahi Couture.
