In a draped mess of a gown worthy of an early boot in a poor season of Project Runway.

(In other words, she hadn't started getting freebies from fashion designers yet.)

Jesse Metcalfe

Just as his Desperate Housewives star was about to rise. JESSE IS BEAUTIFUL.

In other words: OITNB's Pensatucky wearing a unicorn necklace!

You may/may not have noticed already, but Taryn has a Coach clutch and she really likes to show it off.

And in a similar promotional vein, here's Mean Girls' Lacey Chabert

... and a watch she's very keen to show off.

JC Chasez, who just parked his motorbike at the end of the red carpet. Parking wardens be damned, he's a celebrity!

In the middle of a photo-op of a lifetime as a Monarch butterfly lands ever so perfectly atop her lapel.

As is the case with all pro-skateboarders in their ripped t-shirts and sneakers, Chad Muska "REALLY DOES NOT CARE."

That skinny belt really sets off the slouchy teal separates, don't you think?

Some believe this was the only time in 2004 Richie was seen photographed without Paris Hilton.

Wikipedia helpfully states that Trevor's "very first break came through his involvement in music videos when, in 1989, Wright, along with fellow actor Elijah Wood, appeared in the video for Paula Abdul's single "Forever Your Girl," directed by David Fincher. He subsequently starred opposite singer and cousin Stacie Orrico in the videos for her singles "Stuck" (2003), and "I Could Be the One" (2004)."

Which means it's time for another gratuitous old music video:

(Trevor doesn't actually feature in this video, but still, there's got to be more to life than scoring jobs off your cousin.)

The O.C.'s Willa Holland

You know, Marissa's bratty little sister Kaitlin.

Renee Olstead, who isn't letting a fight with her crimping iron slow her down.

Emile "deer in the headlights" Hirsch

Wearing your little brother's favorite graphic tee!

And Gabrielle Union, who never ages.

Though thankfully she's moved on from red carpet flip flops.
