Who doesn’t love Chandra Wilson as tough-love Dr. Miranda Bailey on Grey’s Anatomy? She is riding high this awards season, not only nominated for a NAACP Image Award but also as the only female cast member of the hit show to be nominated for a SAG award. We’re thrilled for her, but it might be time to step it up a notch on the red carpet. The 5′ actress arrived to the People’s Choice Awards in a mauve satin pantsuit that is not only out of step with current trends, but didn’t do justice to the petite actress’s figure. That night, she told PEOPLE that she started picking out her awards show wardrobe in September and would be wearing a dress by Sherri Hill, who turns out to be a prom dress designer! Oh Chandra, you can do better than that — what about a great pantsuit from Donna Karan or Armani? We’re keeping our fingers crossed for the Globes on Monday night.
