The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 2

I’ve got an awful cold and finals to study for, so let’s do this quick and dirty, bitches.

LADY GAGA in New York City // gown by Chanel


Behold: the fascinator, complete with white rose and black feathers and bows; the black fingerless gloves with her signature claws poking out; the custom Chanel gown, in all its glory; the shoes (they defy description); the purse, which is adorable and itsy-bitsy next to that GIANT dress. I love the dozens of necklaces and bracelets, especially the pearls. And, who’s that all the way on the left (Gaga’s right)? Methinks it’s Lord Ginger!

I mean, I fucking love this. Everything about it.

This whole diaper under a sheer dress thing has never been my aesthetic, and Gaga needs to learn when to deploy those massive shoes and when they’re just kind of busy and distracting. Also, I don’t love those gloves.

Careful, Gaga – I think I can see your disco stick.

The coat is magnificent and the sunglasses are adorable. I want.

Leather isn’t fantastic on her. Something about it just doesn’t work for me.

Ugh, shut UP. I don’t even know why people still bother to photograph her. This is a fucking mess.

Sometimes I think she’s stunning, and sometimes I think she kind of looks like a caveman in a dress. I think this might be the latter.

That waist is terribly unflattering on her, but the lipstick is worse. For a second I was proud to see a stamp from a bar on her hand, until I realized it’s probably a temporary tattoo of a virgin unicorn sitting on a rainbow, or whatever the fuck she sings about.

Blake Lively would once again like to remind you that BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS. The color is slightly tacky and I don’t love the shoes, but if she actually wore a shirt, I wouldn’t hate it.

I’m no fan of Jessica, but this dress is fantastic. It’s a little girly and youthful and precious for her, but the accessories help keep it a little more mature and chic. The belt is adorable.

Aw, sweetie. That severe center part is not your friend, and neither is this dress. The color is identical to her skin, and that high waist makes her torso look disproportionately short and her hips deceivingly wide. The little bows on the bodice are ridiculous, and those shoes are just ugly.

These tweens are killing me, but it’s sort of endearing to see them pick dresses that normal young girls would pick, even if they’re fugly. She looks adorable, but in like three weeks she’ll be too old for that dress.

Love the sweater, love the natural hair and makeup. But is it just me, or are her feet enormous?

Unless you’re playing Rapunzel, there’s really no reason to keep your hair that long, dear. Also: five different shades of navy/black? No.

I can’t imagine how much she’s getting paid to go to all eight thousand premieres for this ridiculous movie all over the globe, but she never seems to get the outfit quite right. She comes closest here – cute shoes, interesting dress, flattering (if weird) corset thing. But that pussy bow (I’m not being inappropriate, that’s actually what it’s called) is pathetic and her lackluster hair is worse.

Dear Hollywood: If you wear black stockings with black shoes, you will look like you don’t have feet. Sincerely, Democracy Diva.

P.S. Cute skirt, but we need to have a conversation about the hair.

HAIR, HONEY. You make too much money for ponytails and buns. And those shoes are tacky.

Sometimes I think she is actively trying to piss me off. I will not let you win, Salma. But that hat. I want it to burn in a fire.

It doesn’t matter if you combine it with a varsity jacket, Justin – a cardigan you stole from Mister Rogers’ Christmas wardrobe will not make you look like a man.

  1. As a girl with big feet (10. I know. I’m like a fucking ogre.) I have to say it’s the strap and short toe on those flats that are causing that problem. Ballet flats of certain design/construction can be enemies to girls with bigger feet. She’s young and hasn’t learned this lesson. Hopefully these photos will teach her.

  2. Love Gaga’s handler and all, but I’m really liking the big (most likely) security guy in the back… Yeah.
    Can I please have the Dita’s coat when she’s done with it.
    And yeah, Elle’s gonna have to learn what shoes work with size 10 feet. I had to as well. On the rare occasions I wear ballet flats, they have the round toe, not a point or a hint of a point that would make my feet look huge. Hope she sees pics and figures that out.
    Started laughing when I saw Blake’s suit. The look on her face even screams “LOOK AT ME!!! I HAVE BOOBS!”
