The Clothes: We’ve come to love and adore Monique Lhuillier’s frothy red carpet looks, from her tulle ballgowns to her dreamy lacy dresses. But this season the closest thing to frothy was the color seafoam green. That’s because for one, it’s spring, and two, the collection was inspired by the sea. Looks went from bodycon printed sheaths, to strapless numbers with peplums, to Lhuillier’s signature flowy sexy red carpet appropriate dresses. The showstopper of the night was her last look a gold-on-gold gown.
The Hair and Makeup: Inspired by all things aquatic, the designer made her models look wet with slicked back hair that flowed into tightly wound curls. A swipe of greeny-blue eyeshadow completed the sea-inspired look.

WTF Moment: As soon as Padma Lakshmi sat down, two Chinese journalists came over and asked if they could take a photo with her and a stuffed devil doll. “No, I’m not taking a photo with that,” she said. “I don’t know what it is.” “It’s a famous Chinese website!” they replied, giving her a bumper sticker with their emblem on it.
