The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 1

Gaga in a suit! The Middleton sisters looking Britlicious! Every starlet EVER at Paris Fashion Week!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Very chic, but that hair is a mess.

This is one fugly jumpsuit, but she’s actually kind of working it.

This looks like Josh McKinley from Project Runway designed it, and I do not mean that as a compliment.

The proportions are kind of a mess, and I think the design on that shirt is just strange and cheap-looking.

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.

But I love literally everything she’s wearing here, so all is forgiven.

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.

Dear readers, nobody does street style better than this bitch. Kickass leather shorts, Orlando Bloom’s undershirt, phenomenal designer shoes and purse.

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.

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.

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.

    I dont understand Pippa love. She is not very attractive and she really has no bottom at all and with that tan, she looks like she is a 38 year old cougar. I do love her dress here, but with all the money she has, you would think she could afford a trip to Victorias Secret. I still cant believe that she is Kates younger sister.

    Miranda Kerr is perfection, and Lea Michele has really amazing street style as well.
