Heather on

Miley looks great here! She finally looks her age and sophisticated. I really wish I liked Katherine Heigl bc her dress is really pretty. Anne looks fabulous, as always!

jenn on

definately anne hathaway and katherine heigl

Sisi on

I like Miley’s dress because I think it looks age appropiate on her. Anne’s dress looks really nice as well–it’s different and unique in a way.

katrina on

they all look gorgeous

k on

Sorry, but I’m not a fan of Miley or her dress. There’s just nothing that really stands out about it. It’s not styled very well like Katherine’s and Anne’s dresses are.

Jamie on

Katherine looks amazing as usual. Miley creeps me out. I do not understand the obsession. She’s a dog!

jeanie on

They all look fabolous!!! but I have to go with Miley and Anne, the design of the dress is simple but elegant and it really outlines their bidy line!!! some ppl here need non-hating classes, gosh watch your language… only looser critize and hate on ppl just like did just right now!!! sorry but loosers dont fit in this world so either get a life or keep ur mouth shut!!!

Cristea on

I think Miley looks hella Creepy here! I really like Katherine’s dress.

Rachel on

Out of all of the red dresses, my favorite is Katherine. But my favorite dress of the night was Hillary Swank.

BF on

All the dresses are gorgeous, but Katherine Heigl’s is my favorite. I think her dress and er hair are perfect, but I really don’t like her makeup. Too bronze, and makes her look older. Miley looks her age, which is good, she looks appropriate and sweet. Anne looks stunning, and statuesque. The color really pops against her fair skin.

Cindy on

I don’t think miley look pretty here. she looks too old. she looks more like 25 than 15. she looked better at the Grammys

Kelsy on

Katherine’s dress here stands out the most to me. Miley Cyrus dresses and acts to old for her age sometimes, but I think she looks very nice here, like a 15 year old.

Xiomara on

Hate red dresses but I luv these 1s!

Khylee on

Luv all the dresses. Very pretty! lol!

Erica on

This was my favorite dress of the night! Miley looks amazing!

Patty on

I think they all look beautiful in their dresses, but I’d have to say my favorite is Katherine’s. She always looks so put together and gorgeous! The dress looks perfect on her!

Laura on

katerine looks so great. miley looks horrible. shes trying to be older than wat she is. shes only 15 and where red lipstick that makes her look horrible. i normally like her but not now

baby on

i like katherine’s dress,miley’s is too plain for me but i guess its okay for her age….but my favorite of the night was jennifer garner’s dress…she looked exquisite!!!maybe its jus me but i couldnt help thinkin cameron diaz has worn a dress similar to the one she had on before…

Eleanor on

I can not believe they let Miley wear a Valentino gown. She doesn’t deserve it. Truthfully, if anyone else wore the dress, I would love it. On her, not at all! I don’t understand what is so fascinating about her? She’s nothing special.

maryann on

anne hathway and katherine look great but miley looks really creepy and shes need to go back to Tennessee.

Hannah on

I really don’t like Miley or her dress. She acts way too old, and is kinda full of it. Anne looks gorgeous, and Katherine’s dress is beautiful, so is her hair. So Anna and Katherine A+!

Anonymous on

I’d have to say my favorite was Katherine Heigl – her dress fits her like a dream, and the color looks great with her skin! If only her bronzer looked that good….

Toby on

Take a good closeup look at Miley’s face. Something isn’t right about it. The combination of her nose and the way she smiles, with those teeth. Yuck. Miley’s & Katherine’s dresses are very pretty though.

ashley on

you know what people why don’t u talk about how u look not about others and miley’s looks soooo awsome in that dress!!!i think she was the best dress!!!

Tammy C. on

None of the dresses are my favorite, but it is very nice to see a 14/15yo LOOK like a 14/15yo! I am so sick and tired of seeing bellybuttons. Miley looks age appropriate, keep up the good image. Ann & Katherine look very pretty also.

Polly on

Katherine and Anne look stunning. I think Anne looks best because I love how her dramatic dress contrasts perfectly with her pale skin. I like Miley’s dress, but I just don’t think someone that young can pull it off.

shopaphilia on

Katherine Heigl.

The dress is the most shapely and I adore that circle cutout on the shoulder strap – so unique!

Suzi on

Love Anne’s dress. That girl is from another era. Katherine’s is great as well. Miley is at least age appropriate, but not my favorite dress.

gloria on

omg miley looks like an old lady, for real, that outfit is not meant for her, it makes her look like a gost, so pale and way…too white.

Sam on

Miley Cyrus’s dress is FREAKIN AWESOME!! Her’s is the best one there! Anne Hatheway also looked great!

Dev on

I think miley cirus looks to old. She lost her youth in this dress. I don’t like the earrings or the makeup. The dress is absolutely gorgeous though.

Sally on

Miley stinks

Renee on

I love Mileys dress! Miley,you rock!
