The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 1

It’s cold, you’re hungover and bleary-eyed, and your Amy Winehouse arm tattoos haven’t quite faded yet. [Just me?]

Kudos, Keira, because you are BRINGING it. All hail this fabulous bitch. Just the right amount of skin, fits her like a dream, and the low-key styling only emphasizes the dress. Perfection.

This is what the Fug Girls call a “scrolldown fug.” Most of the picture is fabulous, until you get to the shoes and throw up all over yourself. It’s such a disservice to a beautiful, otherwise perfectly-styled gown. I love the purposely unfinished edges, the color-blocking, the slit, the hair, the earrings – but those Prostitute Barbie shoes are killing me.

I definitely loved this when I first saw it, but I sort of think she looks like an extraordinarily fussy old lady, or that little girl from The Secret Garden before she stopped being a spoiled little bitch.

For Dita, it’s not great. The cut and fit of the bust is a little weird, and it’s so matchy-matchy that she looks like a wax figure. It’s just a little too expected – I like my Dita to push the envelope a little more.

If this means that Hailee Steinfeld will be starring in a Blossom remake, I’m totally on board.

No black toenail polish with sandals, please! Aside from the shoes, I love this outfit. And I dig her fresh-faced makeup and relaxed but fabulous hair.

If this dress fit her, she’d look amazing, but she kind of looks like she’s wearing her grandmother’s blanket. But her eyes pop, which is kind of the only thing that matters.

Super-cute, but she could have gone a little more daring with the styling.

Those are some trannylicious shoes, but I can’t say I don’t love them. They sort of look absurd with her modest dress, though.

I know it’s a photograph, but it just feels like her face isn’t capable of moving from that expression.

A Divalicious Decree: I hereby declare black glittery jumpsuits to be OVER. Wear them, and feel my wrath.

Dislike the color and the fit. It looks wrinkled and sad.

Understated but fabulous. Dress and shoes are beautiful but feel effortless.

I’d love it in a different color. The shape and mix of textures is really fab, though it kind of forces your eye to the vagina area. But that nude is a snooze and a half.

This looks like something so ugly, it could have won Project Runway! Amirite? #toosoon?

Nope. That necklace is absolutely insane, and the ruffles on this dress distort your proportions in a really unflattering way.

Cute, but I don’t love the matching purse.

I was so worried I’d never be able to kind of see Kim Kardashian’s nipples and pubes through her clothes. So thank you, Kim, for giving us this gift.

Hate the makeup, would love the dress if it fit her a little better.

No. Everything about this is terrible. You can’t do shoulder cut-outs and the world’s largest boob eyelet. The shoes are hideous, the proportions are terrible – but can you expect anything less for a Mohegan Sun party in Connecticut?
