The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 2

There’s judgment and sass to dole out, dear readers.

It’s taken her awhile to get here, but Elizabeth Banks has finally snagged the coveted top spot in my weekly fashion recaps. (She’s been praying for this honor every night before bed, I swear.) Hair and makeup are perfect, the dress is mega-fucking-fabulous, the accessories are perfect. Can’t go wrong with a hot blonde in gold, can you?

Cute, but a little more color in her face would have livened this look up a bit.

I never love a mega-short slip under a full-length lace gown – it reads a little desperate – but Diane looks beautiful. The color is lovely on her, and the sleeves are so delicate and romantic.

It’s only been a few days since Paris couture fashion week (get caught up on celebs’ looks from the front row and catch the best from the runway in my fabulous red carpet predictions). But lucky Dita is already rocking this fierce look from Alexis Mabille‘s Spring 2012 couture collection. I’m so glad she kept a smaller version fascinator, because it really makes the look, and I think the matching purse is amazing. But the shoes were one step too far.

Adorable dress, cute shoes, dig the bracelet. Bring a little more oomph to the hair/makeup department and we’re golden!

I love the print of the shirt, but hate the silhouette of it on her tiny figure. The pants are fine, but I feel like I’ve seen her in those shoes many times before. Love the bag.

Wish I could see more of the coat, but I like what I see. It’s quite enough black, with the stockings and shoes, but again, the purse is sharp and chic.

The dress is boring as can be but looks stunning on her. However, with shiny nude pumps and no other styling, it’s nothing to get excited about.

Have fun at the Winter Wonderland high school dance, Kate!

I’d wear all of this, together and separate, any day of the week, and especially while walking around London in the rain. It’s amazing how much more chic and grown-up she looks with her hair back.

Yummy jacket; awful hair.

The double-breasted suit isn’t always easy to pull off, but it helps to be British and completely adorable. The tie isn’t my favorite, but he looks too dapper to criticize.

I think this dress is very sweet, from the elbow-length sleeves to the rounded shoulders to the lush velvet. Shoes and purse are unobtrusive but vaguely interesting. The messy bangs work really well on her, too.

I get that she has to wear campaign colors for the next year, but do they have to be so shiny?

That silhouette does nothing for you, darling. And I’m not sure that hairdo works either.

We can always count on Drew to throw her hair into a ponytail, grab the first giant printed gown she can find, and hit the red carpet. I love her for it, but I don’t love her for subjecting my eyes to that print.

The drag queen makeup with the truly terrible hair is just depressing. The gown is flattering, but not particularly interesting, and what’s happening north of her neck is too distracting to even notice the dress.

Annie wore a simple black dress and black heels three weeks ago; she wore a classic black column gown and black heels the week before that. Honey, three in a row is officially a style rut. Let’s get cracking on some new colors and shapes.

Do I have to start a fucking petition to end these Swedish milkmaid braids?! They’re everywhere, and they’re awful on everyone, from Jaime King to Elle Fanning. And could there be three more basic Hollywood starlet items than a lacy LBD, bow-adorned black peep-toe pumps, and a sparkly black clutch? Snooze.

Now the hair is becoming purple? I think that thing has a life of its own.

  1. I’ve actually tried to mimic Elizabeth Banks’ eye makeup from the first look. Bronzey shadow, brown liner, and mascara.

    I’ve gotta say, it’s nice to see Mary Kate Olsen not looking like the homeless lady with expensive clothes for once. I think that was the Olsen twin with homeless-chic style…

    And how is Kelly Osbourne’s hair stylist pulling this off? Are they drugging her before suggesting these colors and styles? Regardless, it keeps me laughing my ass off.

    I agree with the comment above about how nice it is to see the Olsens in something nice for once. I actually really like what they are wearing.
    I have to have the Taylor Swifts jacket in my closet, asap. She looks great, and with her recent fashion hits, im excited to see what she wears to the Grammys.
    It looks like Kirsten Dunst got herself a new stylist recently. She looks great.
