Helen Mirren
Helen Mirren: We're a bit under-awed in what Helen's wearing. She looks like she's going for a romp in the English countryside. Helen's dress is only missing a crook and a flower trimmed hat a la Bo Peep. She usually looks so sophisticated as well.
Rinko Kikuchi
Rinko Kikuchi: She's channelling Jayne Mansfield with an hourglass look. She hasn't got much of an hourglass, but still looks amazing.
Beyonce
Beyonce: She looks like she's dressed as a creature from the sea. The dress has a retro look but it doesn't reflect a particular period. Beyonce can carry off a stronger colour than that. That dress also looks really uncomfortable.
Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel: Jessica needs a bra and a decent hairdresser. She's got a hot body but she's wearing the wrong outfit. Jessica Biel, why is a young woman wearing Oscar de la Renta?
John Travolta and Kelly Preston
Kelly Preston: Kelly Preston: Animal print Dolce & Gabbana - just hideous! Kelly needs to go back to the seventies at once. She looks like she should be in one of her husband's [John Travolta] old movies. There are shades of Jacky Collins in that too.
Rachel Weisz
Rachel Weisz: We're divided on Rachel. Fiona likes it. For earlier red carpet arrival commentary Click here
