Vienna City Hall (Wiener Rathaus) was the place to be last night, as the stars descended for the Eurovision 2015 opening ceremony. Singers, dancers, tv hosts and mentors from 40 delegations walked the red carpet under the glare of the world’s media and adoring fans. The entourages were all smiles and waves as they paraded by, but this is Eurovision. It’s a contest, and even on the red carpet competition is fierce. Which stars were dressed to impress? And which ones were victims of a fashion car crash? We’ve collected photos of each of the acts, and y’all can rate them a “Hit” or a “Miss”. You can then vote in our poll to decide who worked the carpet best. Some people’s ENTM or ENTMM chances may depend on your verdict. Choose wisely.

For me, Albania with her clothes no longer in vogue, it is similar to Cake. Armenia – very effect it outfits. Austria – cool! Belarus – very positive) Cyprus – interesting guys. Estonia – quite stylish. Georgia – Gothic. Greece and Iceland – lovely. Italy – luxury. Latvia – fashionable. Lithuania – in the trend. Malta – smiling. Moldova – funny and sexy police. Poland – elegant. Portugal – too bright, but that’s the trick. Russia – a very beautiful, fashionable and cute. Serbia – wow! Yes, it’s a beautiful cake! Wrap it to me))) Spain -Glamour. It’s the country… Read more »

As an Albanian, I am sorry to inform you that eurovision does not have a solid fan base in Albania. Although I must admith that with Elhaida’s participation this year, the media attention has much grown. The point of all this is that I really think there are not that many albanians voting here. Of course there is a certain amount. We aren’t that big of a nation anyway. Even if it is the contrary and there are only Albanians voting for Elhaida, I am happy for that too. It’s been a long time since an eurovision entry took this… Read more »

How in the world is Nina the best dressed? I mean she’s wearing a suit… Nothing special… A simple black suit… If we’re talking suite, then I must say that Mans was way better looking!! Elhaida’s dress and Genealogy’s outfits were totally on point! Loved the purses , their accessories as well as the color and style of the dresses!

Elhaida looked absolutely stunning TBH – my personal favourite. <3 Loic looked glam as usual <3

I'm LOL-ing at all the thumbs down for Moldova – that was a truly iconic moment! I was laughing my head off when they came out <3

I personally think the best dressed male is Daniel Kajmakoski (probably because I would wear that myself) and the best dressed female is Edurne by a long shot.

Although her choice in clothing isn’t stellar, I think Lisa Angell looked absolutely adorable and cute. I love it.

Leonor’s was an absolute disaster. Kind of like Moldova ESC 2014. Bojana looked like an extravagant gypsy drag queen, and Maria Olafs’ dress was nice but she needed to wear some shoes……

What with Albanian and Georgian votes!? Seriously, are you guys paid to vote for your countries? Because, doing that you only create wrong image, boosting your own expectations, which could lead only to a big disappointment once you realize that 90% of Europe doesn’t share your opinion.

Mans and Edurne! The Red Carpet was on the news and when Mans had to sing a part of Walk Along and pronounce Trijntje’s name, my mom was like: Well, he is really good-looking”. :’ D

This voting option is super fun! I wish you’d use it more often, Wiwi!

The San Marino duo, Mans, Aminata, Edurne, Elhaida and the colour coordination from Armenia are gorgeous!

Stig Rasta needs to be fired for wearing those hideous sneakers.
And where are your shoes Maria Olaf?!

Do not compare Elhaidan with Nina, Elhaida is looked perfect with her dress, also by fashion critics criticized positively, But Nina can be in the lead of the table, but it is not this look good and know all. Do not try to come down here Elhaides vocal values, it will give better today, and will have my vote.

Please STOP this thing with Georgia!! Nina can’t be first ALL the time! She doesn’t always deserve it! Other contestants and countries are usually a lot better! For example Spain Greece Sweden and Norway were much better than Georgia at the red carpet! This has to stop immediately! Please wiwibloggs…

Can I just take a minute to rage about how terrible the official live coverage of the Red Carpet was? The camera shots were horrible, I can draw the City Hall by memory by now, but we didn’t get a single shot of the arrival of delegations such as Sweden, Russia, Hungary, Belarus or Switzerland. The commentators obviously didn’t pass European Geography 101, because they couldn’t distinguish the Blatics from one another and mistook the Netherland for France at least twice. Now, if I may be allowed, I’d like to take a Fashion Police moment. WINNERS: Genealogy in general were… Read more »

The Best Female: Edurne for Spain! Wow what a stunning dress, she looked absolutely beautiful, stylish and sexy! The Best Male: Mans for Sweden, stylish and classy! The worst: Czech Republic (Marta looks okay, Vaclav didn’t really bother though), Ireland (Molly is sowed into that leather jacket, could RTE not give her a wardrobe?), Finland (okay, I guess stylish suits would have ruined their grunge image, but still, its a red carpet) p.s I’m loling at how tall the female vocalist for San Marino is compared to the male. looks like she has to get down on her knees to… Read more »
