Okay, you've got ultra-cool Los Angeles-based Hammer Museum as your setting, Mark Bradford and Joni Mitchell as your honorees, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt as two of your co-chairs, Sia performing "Chandelier" live in way of entertainment — throw all those elements together, and you're pretty much destined to have one of the most sophisticatedly star-studded events of the year.
Then, add that all to the fact that high-end designer Bottega Veneta sponsored the event (and dressed a good portion of the celeb attendees), and the fact that — as Piper Perabo intoned to The Hollywood Reporter — "Museum parties you can wear something really wild," and you also had some of the adventurously dressed guests this side of the Met Gala.
Yep, some of Hollywood's most interestingly dressed celebs were in attendance (and no, I don't mean that euphemistically): There was Emmy Rossum looking as regal as ever, Zoe Saldana continuing her fab maternity streak, January Jones switching it up in a hot pink structured number. Plus, pretty much everyone was wearing the brand of the evening, Bottega Veneta. So, with all that in mind, why not rank them from worst to best dressed?
This would have been so cute without the sweater.
Nice enough (I love the metallic silver), but that mermaid hair is a shade too far.
Pretty in purple!
I was prepared to dislike this one, but the edginess of the near-platinum wavy bob ended up winning me over.
I'm all for a LBD with a twist!
Evan Rachel Wood
Menswear-inspired suiting and leather leggings? Win-win!
Workin' those Effie Trinket-approved shoes.
Kicky, ever-so-slightly edgy, and adorably mod.
HOW IS SHE SO POISED? That cut is gorgeous on her, but I sure wish it was in more interesting colors.
Really, really, really fun. Also: one of the increasingly rare occurrences when anyone in the Mad Men cast is better dressed than La Kiernan Shipka (though it's definitely a close call — I'm sure some of you disagree with this ranking).
First things first: her eyeliner is on point. Also, pretty much everything about this dress (the texture, silhouette, colors) is pitch perfect.
