The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 1

Is it in poor taste to say BOW DOWN, BITCHES, when talking about the leaders of our democratic nation? Probably, but come ON. This is just phenomenal. The color is an absolute dream on her, and the cut and embellishments of the gown are dramatic and elegant. Love that she went for mega-earrings and little else in terms of accessories – a statement gown like this doesn’t need much else.

In case you were wondering if the old bitch still has it – yes. She absolutely does.

I’m not sold on this. I think the hair and makeup are both too severe, the dress doesn’t photograph particularly well, and the shoes were a terrible choice. I wouldn’t be so picky if it were a different star, but this is Anne Hathaway, and I demand perfection.

They’re both gorgeous to begin with, but combining their beauty and dressing it in formal wear seems to create something so much more than the sum of its parts. Love the purse, girl. John, you look delicious.

And then she inexplicably chose this cheap-looking prom dress and a truly dreadful, inconceivably unflattering hair style. Why, Emily? Why?

I think this gown is stunning and she’s working it pretty well. But for God’s sake, if you’re going to wear a gown this dramatic, you need to put a little effort into your hair! The messy updo paired with that luxe gown jsut doesn’t work. But let’s take a look at the back:

Damn, girl. You know I don’t love a train or a cowl neck, but this looks fucking AWESOME on you. But I maintain what I said before about the hair.

JUST WEAR SOMETHING DIFFERENT FOR ONCE. God. These people can get so predictable, it’s exhausting.

It would be so much cuter if the proportions made any sense at all. The loosely tucked-in blouse with that massive tea-length pleated skirt? Even if you’ve got Olivia’s body, the proportions here just don’t work.

Love the hair, and she’s young enough that matching her dress to her shoes is adorable. I could do without the potato sack of a skirt, though.

It’s all very office holiday party, don’t you think? I just can’t see a person wearing this much glitter and gold for any other reason.

Those are not colors, and whatever they are, they don’t match. Also, consider a step away from minimalism, because this is so minimalist I’m falling asleep on my laptop.

The color of her hair is still destroying my will to live, but at least the blunt bob looks awesome on her. I like the dress, though the length is a serious problem. She looks a foot shorter than usual. And can everyone lay off the gold shoes for awhile? I know we’re all getting in the holiday spirit, but c’mon. Choose fashion over festivity.

Predictable too, but you have to admit, she looks better than ever. Love the cocktail ring.

Black stockings + black pumps = footless aliens on the red carpet. The dress is not necessarily pretty, but it’s got some interest, and I like that.

I really just hate everything about this. I’m trying to see it for what it’s trying to be, but the silhouette is just insane, and she looks like an Olsen twin in it. (That’s not a compliment.)

This girl has a serious problem with over-accessorizing and mixing the wrong accessories. A red satin purse with blue satin shoes? Um, not unless you’re Uncle Sam’s hooker, honey.

This is so not a look for a grown woman. I mean, I don’t know what a child needs with a Dior dress, but this can’t possibly look good on someone older than Hailee Steinfeld.

Another day, another country music event with Carrie Underwood in a nude dress and hideous shoes.

The “defying gravity” jokes just write themselves, don’t they?

I have no words left for this particular hipster icon and all-around atrocious dresser. That haircut makes you look like a four-year-old, that dress is so hideous I’m actually in pain, and those giant ankle boots aren’t helping.

    You can see Rachel McAdam’s pubes through her dress. Madonna is wearing TROUSER SOCKS on the red carpet?? But you’re right, MObama looked kick ass. That dress is stunning.
