Hayden Panettiere in aqua blue at the Critics Choice TV Awards: cute or total mess?

Hayden Panettiere

At the Critics’ Choice Television Awards last night, there were a few hits and plenty of misses. Hayden Panettiere dressed down in a Keepsake “Lost Without You” aqua blue dress that showed off a bit of skin. The dress looks great on her figure but is also very dated. I have no idea why she wore nude peep-toed shoes with this dress either. Her hair and makeup look pretty good though even if she does look slightly too tan at this event. Hayden also has a great smile, which makes any outfit look prettier than it really is.

Emmy Rossum

Emmy Rossum fared much better (she was up for Best Actress in a Drama Series) in a Donna Karan gown that had a one-shouldered design and wrapped around her body in a dramatic manner from the back view. The gold, metal-like fabric provided a nice contrast against Emmy’s light skin and dark hair, and the bold pink lipstick is an unexpected touch that also works well. I also love the side-swept hair, which fits the mood of the dress.

Natalie Zea

Natalie Zea … EGADS. I don’t even know where to begin here, but those of you who watch “Justified” (and this past season of “Californication”) will know that Natalie is a gorgeous woman with tons of sex appeal and (relatively) natural beauty. On last night’s red carpet, she worked very hard to destroy all of that. Is she trying to be Cleopatra? The dress itself isn’t a disaster, but those dramatic, overdone earrings and harsh makeup really complete the transformation into a terrible, terrible look. Poor Natalie.

Lucy Liu

Lucy Liu won the award for Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series (“Southland”) and looked very feminine yet ravishing at the same time. Lucy wore an Atelier Versace gown in light pink with lots of lace and ruffles. Her loose chignon and soft, girlish makeup set off the look perfectly. I still can’t believe she’s 43 years old.

Kate Walsh

Kate Walsh looked incredibly bland on the red carpet last night. There’s nothing wrong with this yellow dress, but she could have dressed it up a bit with an updo and more dramatic makeup.

Charlie Hunnam

Charlie Hunnam was there too in a black suit and black tie. It’s a bit monochromatic, and I sort of miss his longish hair from way back. Still, the man is adorable.

    Holy crap. I didn’t even recognize Hayden. Her face looks different or something. She looks off

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Agree. Whats wrong with her eyes/face?? She is usually a cute girl.

      • Isla says:


        Something about her eyes remind me of Britney’s and that’s not a good thing.

        Crazy Days & Nights had a Blind Item that was supposedly about Hayden and her incredibly f*cked up childhood/parents – it involved incest, the parents’ crazy sex life and Hayden’s parents pimping her out – Himmmmmm(supposedly, RDJ) laid it down.

        Very, very disturbing and vile if all is true.

      • Annie says:

        Yikes, I honestly thought she was her mother! She must have been to the same surgeon.

  2. arock says:

    haydens head is huge. she looks like bobble head skipper.

  3. Reece says:

    Too much wrong to comment on here ex. the woman in orange, Natalie, looks like Blake Lively.

  4. ZigZagZoey says:

    Aw, Charlie! I would have gladly gone with you instead of that girl that you look like you don’t want to be with!

  5. debunker says:

    I always thought Hayden hasn’t aged gracefully but her face does look gorgeous here.

  6. Hautie says:

    Who is that b*tch with my husband?? I told Charlie he was not allowed out of the house without me!

    Hayden looks different, from a good 15 pound weight loss. And it really shows in her face and those clavicles.

    And I think Kate Walsh looks gorgeous! She is another girl, who is over 40… and does not have a plastic surgeon on speed dial.

  7. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Emmy Rossum is always so pretty. She hasnt aged at all since Phantom..and that was put out like 10 years ago!

  8. MST says:

    Emily Rossum is so pretty. Did you know she is related to Vera Wang through marriage? I guess she doesn’t have to worry about where she’s getting her wedding dress.

  9. Sillyone says:

    Charlie Charlie Charlie…You could have taken anyone and you chose an octomom look alike…I wasn’t doing a thing last night.

  10. Geo says:

    Charlie needs to audition for Finnick! GAH!

  11. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Hunnammmmmmmmmmmm…I have a thing for him. Like, BAD.

    I love Natalie Zea but that whole ensemble is awful. Lucy Liu’s freckles are so cute! I wonder why she covers them up so often?

    • Chatcat says:

      Ms. Kitty…the only one I am impressed with is Charlie…can you imagine sitting with Fassy on one side and Hunny on the other in the bar and the whole autograph with indelible marker scene played out? “Damn Wish I Was Your Lover” song is now going to be stuck in my head all stinkn day because of these two posts today!!!!!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Chat-that would be a dream to end all dreams. There are some scenes in Sons of Anarchy as well as some scenes from Shame that I’d love to have playing on a loop to watch before I go to bed. YUM.

  12. F5 says:

    Lucy Liu looks like a sofa

  13. littlestar says:

    Am I the only one here who looked at Hayden Panettiere and wondered if that whole prostitution/abuse thingy was real or not?…

    • neelyo says:

      No you’re not. The dress is too casual and the make-up looks a few days old, so my mind wandered to all of the rumors about her. I don’t think she looks good at all. She looks much older and kind of worn out.

  14. Kristen says:

    I always find it hard to believe that Hayden is only 22. Doesn’t it feel like she’s been around for pretty much forever?

    I’ve watched and liked Natalie in a zillion things and didn’t recognize her at all. I think the dress is probably cute, but her hair and make-up are just so bad.

  15. Mingy says:

    Charliiiiiieeeeeee! Hot damn that man is gorgeous….”sons of anarchy” is straight up porn because if him!

  16. birdie says:

    @Isla: I have read the same things about Hayden. If just a quarter of all of that was true, she must be so messed up! Blindgossip had so many blinds about her. Poor girl.

  17. normades says:

    I’m really confused if half of these women are overdressed, or half are underdressed. Hayden looks too casual imo, but Emmy looks way to over the top.

  18. Jovia says:

    Everything you said. Kate’s eyeliner is horrifically bad, ditto Natalie’s makeup. Cringe.

  19. Cookie says:

    Hayden looks gorgeous. I think the nude heels go perfectly with the dress. What other colour would you have worn? I guess maybe a silver could have worked.

  20. deehunny says:

    THE FIRST pic of emmy looks like Britney Murphy, right?
