Ellen Pompeo Wears a Fun Costume to Chanel’s “Night of Diamonds”

Everybody pulled out their favorite black dress and suit for the Chanel Fine Jewelry “Night of Diamonds” dinner at the Plaza Hotel in NYC. As much as I give her shit for being too thin, I am appreciative that in the sea of sedate little black dresses, Ellen Pompeo managed to hit the red carpet with an outfit, hair and make-up that stood out from the crowd.

I love the retro-glam look from the neck up, and there is so much going on in this outfit to enjoy–a giant satin white boy slung across her shoulders, positioned right at the center of her chest, tiny little black leather gloves, with their own bows too, I believe, and a skirt that dissolves into tassles by the time it reaches her feet. In case you can’t tell if I’m being sarcastic or not, you’re not alone, because I can’t either.

But without any confusion, I can confidently say that I think Blake Lively of “Gossip Girl” looked absolutely fantastic with her hair loosely pulled-back, her star earrings and sheer-in-parts top. However, it’s Selma Blair who has my vote for best dress and hair. Kristy Turlington looks predictably beautiful, but quite frankly, if you’re a supermodel, it’s your job.

And poor Julia Stiles–I feel like she always looks like she ran out of make-up before walking out the door.
