And they looked hot doing it.
The former Saturday Night Live duo showed us exactly what sort of night we were in for when they appeared on the red carpet looking seriously sexy in polar opposite outfits. Fey went the girly glam route with her L’Wren Scott dress and Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, while Poehler went with a Stella McCartney pantsuit (sans blouse and bra!) and Charlotte Olympia shoes.
And how did Poehler get ready for such a cleavage-baring shot?
A spray tan, of course. The Parks & Recreation star got a custom tan courtesy of St. Tropez’s skin-finishing expert Fiona Locke.
“She’s going to have three costume changes with one that shows off some leg and I didn’t want her to have to worry about, ‘What will my legs look like?'” Locke told The Cut on Monday.
“I wanted to give her a golden, glowy look.”
Fey and Poehler only had a couple of wardrobe changes during the show — a form-fitting navy dress (Fey) and two cleavage-baring gowns (Poehler).
Who knew she had such a great set of girls?
Of course, it wasn’t really about the fashion — it was about their cutting one-liners that left us dying with laughter.
The best line of the night? When Poehler skewered notoriously difficult director James Cameron.
“When it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron,” Poehler quipped, referring to Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow.
Oh, Tina and Amy: Please host every awards show ever.
Fashion face-off winner: Poehler. Her looks were daring — and they paid off.
