Well, the show is well underway, so we’re signing off with our favorite dress and nail combo tonight; Maria Menounos in Christian Siriano in partnership with Stella Artois and Water.org to fund the charity’s efforts to bring clean water to the developing world.
Another beautiful trend tonight was emerald, as seen on Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein and Rachel McAdams in August Getty Atelier, and guess what? NUDE NAILS.
Reese Witherspoon and Tina Fey had the same idea; a deep jewel-toned purple gown, silver jewelry, and light nude manicure.
Sorry, we just came to after passing out over Gaga’s Brandon Maxwell ensemble.
Finally! A statement nail on Kerry Washington! We’re not great fans of her dress for this occasion, but the long black almond nail is on point.
Chrissie Teigen is showing the other big trend on the carpet besides nude; deep red. Here she is looking amazing.
