Gaga in a suit! The Middleton sisters looking Britlicious! Every starlet EVER at Paris Fashion Week!
LADY GAGA at the Beacon Theatre in New York City // suit by Viktor & Rolf
Love: Hair, headband, glasses, mustard-yellow power suit with no shirt. Hate: The length of those pants, which are being DRAGGED THROUGH THE STREETS OF MANHATTAN. That, my dear readers, is what we law students by day/style bloggers by night call a crime against fashion.
CATHERINE, DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE visiting a London hospital // dress by Amanda Wakeley, shoes and purse by LK Bennett
Simple, and the accessories throw it into boringtown, but you can’t deny that this woman looks gorgeous in that winter-white/gray color. Although, being royalty and all, you’d think she could afford to eat a sandwich.
PIPPA MIDDLETON at a charity event in London // dress by Temperley London
I know that as a fashion blogger and American Anglophile I’m supposed to kiss the soles of the Middleton sisters’ sensible but stylish shoes, but I’ve never really understood why Pippa is all over the fashion blogs. She’s absolutely bangin’, but I’ve never found her style even remotely interesting enough to discuss. But she’s wearing a red low-cut gown, and it’s Temperley London, so I deemed it worthy of my discerning judgment. This gown is pretty gorgeous on her, though I’m not loving that giant bouquet popping out of her torso. But the all-gold accessories are very prom, especially with that tan. I hear it’s been unseasonably beautiful in England lately, but come on. There’s no way that tan is real.
LEIGHTON MEESTER at the Christian Dior Spring 2012 show in Paris // dress and purse by Christian Dior, shoes by Louis Vuitton
You got me, Leighton. You’re fucking awesome, and I will never say another bad word about you again, until you wear something ugly again in like a week and a half. But seriously, this is perfect Paris Fashion Week attire. She started with a simple but fantastic LWD and added the perfect accessories: a classic purse by the label, and an eye-catching shoe that brings the look to a whole new level. It’s fantastic.
OLIVIA PALERMO at the Christian Dior Spring 2012 show in Paris // dress and purse by Christian Dior
Scrape off the lipstick, lose the purse and almost all the jewelry, actually give a shit about yyour hair, and wear one dress instead of four.
RACHEL ZOE at the Christian Dior Spring 2012 show in Paris // dress and belt by Rachel Zoe, bag by Givenchy
Very chic, but that hair is a mess.
RACHEL ZOE at the Viktor & Rolf Spring 2012 show in Paris
This is one fugly jumpsuit, but she’s actually kind of working it.
JULIANNE MOORE at the Lanvin Spring 2012 show in Paris // dress and shoes by Lanvin
SALMA HAYEK at the Stella McCartney Spring 2012 show in Paris
This looks like Josh McKinley from Project Runway designed it, and I do not mean that as a compliment.
LIV TYLER at the Givenchy Spring 2012 show in Paris // top and skirt by Givenchy
The proportions are kind of a mess, and I think the design on that shirt is just strange and cheap-looking.
LEA MICHELE at the Hogan by Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2012 show in Paris // dress by The Row
Noooo, darling. This is yet another example of a gown that girls under 5’3″ shouldn’t touch. You’re positively swimming in that, and not in the way that makes you look exquisitely skinny. Also, that amount of makeup is very aging. She’s practically Kim Kardashian levels of made-up.
LEA MICHELE in Paris // hat by American Eagle
But I love literally everything she’s wearing here, so all is forgiven.
OLIVIA WILDE at Paris Fashion Week
I think the proportions are not excellent for her, and the shoes and purse might be a bit too heavy for such a busy print. Earrings are necessary if your hair is up.
MIRANDA KERR // shorts by The Row, shades by Celine, bag by Miu Miu, shoes by Yves Saint Laurent
Dear readers, nobody does street style better than this bitch. Kickass leather shorts, Orlando Bloom’s undershirt, phenomenal designer shoes and purse.
SARAH JESSICA PARKER at a Human Rights Campaign event in Washington, DC
I haven’t really enjoyed an SJP look from head to toe in quite some time, but I can’t find cause for complaint here. The dress is a beautiful and interesting color, and I love the subtle hints of plaid and texture you can spot in the fabric. The accessories are all beautiful, but they don’t fight with the dress for attention.
MARISA TOMEI at the Los Angeles premiere of Ides of March // dress by Marios Schwab, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti
I’ve seen those shoes on a few starlets, and I still dig them, but not with this dress or that purse. The dress itself is fun and interesting, but if you won’t even run a brush through your hair, it doesn’t matter what you wear. It won’t work.
JENNIFER HUDSON at a Weight Watchers event in Chicago
It’s become a mathematical certainty that at any given moment, at least four starlets are wearing an LBD with a peplum skirt.
You’ve seen what’s on the red carpet – now predict what comes next.
