It’s time to indulge in some fabulous, darlings.

I don’t really know who Jessica Chastain is, but she’s a hot redheaded actress, so I’m predisposed to be on her team. This blue is mega-fantastic with her coloring, and the dress is sexy, but not vulgar. She could use a bit of jewelry, but I love how fresh-faced and simple she looks.

There’s a lot of colorblocking happening in celebrities’ wardrobes lately, and this supermodel is no exception. This dress is beyond beautiful, and the bag and shoes are perfect additions.

Freida also worked the shit out of the colorblocking trend, but I think she overdid it with the blue shoes AND blue sweater (in her left hand). But her hair still shines like diamonds, and I love that this color blue looks just as good on Freida as it did on Jessica Chastain.

A travel mug of coffee is a girl’s most important accessory. Also, I hope Emma keeps this hair color literally forever. She looks simple but fabulous in her sweet, flattering dress and fun, attention-grabbing heels.

SARAH HYLAND // shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti


The oldest Dunphy daughter on Modern Family worked the hell out of this adorable little dress. I wouldn’t have gone with silver shoes, and the cocktail ring doesn’t really go with this look, but the dress itself is chic, modern and sexy.

Even more color-blocking, but there’s something a little less appealing about this one. Maybe it’s the accessories, or the severe hair, but even though I like this dress, the overall look isn’t working for me. The dress certainly flatters her and fits her perfectly, but I don’t like the way she matched the top of her purse to the skirt, the bottom of the purse to her skin, and chose a shade of yellow right in the middle for the shoes.

Simple but sexy. Love a black dress with burgundy shoes.

That’s a hell of a jacket, but it looks a little ridiculous with those shoes. These often-stuffy, old lady Chanel jackets are often re-appropriated by chic young stars, but paired with those VERY youthful shoes, the look seems incongruous. And girlfriend needs a new hairstyle, stat.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you … CHER!

Cute and boring, as usual.



It’s too matchy-matchy, but the skirt is beautiful and the silhouette is incredibly flattering. I love the shoes, but not with this outfit.

HAILEE STEINFELD // dress by Louis Vuitton, purse by Roger Vivier


Definitely not my favorite Hailee look, but it’s got a lot of cute elements that don’t quite work together. The quirky red platforms are really perfect for a fabulous fourteen-year-old, and although the dress isn’t something I’d choose for her, it’s got charm and style. The face purse brings the look a little over-the-top. She could have used one accessories that wasn’t red and didn’t compete with the rest of her outfit for attention. Love the simple, chic hair and makeup though.

You might recognize this precious little gem as Sally Draper from Mad Men. I just wanted to point out that fashionistas are getting younger and younger (and making me feel older and older), but this eleven-year-old is showing some serious style skills. This dress is sweet, stylish and age-appropriate, and her shoes are too cute. This lil’ tween is one to watch.

The Olsen twins’ little sister gets it almost-right at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association event. If this shirt wasn’t so stupidly long, throwing off the proportions of the whole look, she’d look fantastic. The shoes are interesting, the skirt is a great color, and the necklace is fabulous. Try again next time, Liz!

CLAIRE DANES // dress by Reed Krakoff

The fit is all wrong and the color doesn’t work for her, but the dress has some semblance of cuteness. I just hate Claire Danes as a blonde – maybe because I loved her the most circa My So-Called Life. But I think this hair color ages her.

Buffy’s looking pretty good. Safe and boring, but chic and classy.

ALISON BRIE // suit by Topshop, shoes by Christian Louboutin

I feel like every time I write about Alison Brie, I talk about how much I love her and how I wish she dressed just a little better. I think this jacket is lovely, but this particular pair of shorts doesn’t do anything for her. The accessories are too big and chunky, and as usual, she’s got too much makeup on for such a naturally beautiful girl. And her hair always looks a little more prom queen than starlet.

I love Kat Dennings, but this is so not her dress. The green washes out her skin tone terribly, and the fit is a hot disaster.

Oh, Taylor. What else is new? I’ve seen you in this dress once a month since you became famous. It’s time to step your game up and take some fashion risks.

This is the kind of dress that probably looked terrific on the runway, but doesn’t quite translate to real life. And I thought we stopped dying our hair platinum blonde like, at least five years ago. It looks ridiculous. The shoes are killer, but not with this look.

RACHEL BILSON // top and pants by Erdem, clutch by Giuseppi Zanotti, shoes by Christian Louboutin

I love Rachel Bilson so much it’s weird, but I can’t support her in this particular fashion endeavor. If these pants were skinny jeans instead of just hanging straight off her legs, she might have pulled this off. But these pants on a tiny girl make her look shorter than she actually is. And come on, leopard print shoes with a floral top? That’s a tough combo to pull off, even if you’re a master at mixing prints and colors, like Rachel.

KRISTEN BELL // dress by Versus, shoes by Casadei

I mean, this is just absurd. Are those little flaps supposed to fit her boobs? Because they certainly do not. And the black vertical piping looks like she’s in her Burlesque gear, not in a red carpet dress.

Oh my god. HOW MANY ACCESSORIES ARE YOU WEARING? Does she just dump out her entire jewelry box each day and cover herself in everything shiny she can get her hands on? This looks absolutely ridiculous.

Peggy, I will pay you five hundred dollars if you never wear nude again.
