The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 1

Welcome to another fabulous week on the red carpet.

Damn, girl. It’s not the first time Rooney’s rocked white Givenchy, but it is the best. She looks fabulous. If she can add a color (besides red) into her wardrobe, I’ll be the happiest blogger in the world.

I usually find Zoe to be a bit heavy-handed with the accessories, but this looks fucking fabulous on her. That little cape is amazing, the necklace is divine, the shoes are delicious. Work it, honey.

Now you see what I mean about Octavia being unstoppably fierce in bright, bold colors, right? She was born to wear this fucking fabulous teal. Love this dress on her, but honey could do with some more fun accessories.

It’s an interesting dress, though not necessarily one I love, but Cate pulls it off well. The bow-adorned nude satin platforms are really, really not my favorite, though. But take a look at this same dress (shorter and green, but the same dress) on Reese Witherspoon, also worn this week:

The shorter version was better for Reese, since she’s fairly short. And the green makes for a great transformation of the dress into eveningwear. The belt is awful, or awfully placed, but she looks chic overall.

I’m not going to gasp at every Chanel gown you throw on unless you really put some effort in, Michelle.

Fabulous dress! I don’t think the slicked hair, smoky eye, and black accessories were the best way to go on Emmy, but the dress is fun and funky.

I might throw up with boredom. If this is what the Jason Wu for Target line has to offer, count me out.

Cute dress, but I’m over the ponytail.

KATY PERRY in Las Vegas // dress by McQ, shoes by Alexander McQueen

Listen, it’s not the worst hairdo Katy’s ever had. The blue is actually awesome, and the long bob is great on her. And for a woman going through a rough public break-up, she looks pretty darn well put-together.

Cute. Boring. You know the drill.

NICOLE KIDMAN // dress by Collette Dinnigan

Nice try, Nicole, but Rachel McAdams wore this a few days ago – and looked way better in it. Did you really think we wouldn’t notice?

SARAH JESSICA PARKER at the Smash premiere // dress by Tory Burch, jacket by Yves Saint Laurent, purse by VBH, shoes by Manolo Blahnik

Lose the belt and change the color of the shoes, and I’m satisfied. I do wish the woman could carry a clutch once in awhile.

Let’s start with the good: The shoes, which are God’s gift to tweenkind. I know I derided bow-adorned shoes earlier, but A) these are WAY more fucking fabulous than those boring nude satin platforms and B) who better than a fourteen-year-old starlet to rock a bow-adorned shoe? I hate the blouse on principle, since it contains two of my pet peeves (buttoned-up blouses and pussy bows), but the skirt doesn’t offend me. The length is actually great. However, let’s say what needs to be said: THE BRAIDS. LOSE THEM.

First of all, if you haven’t watched Smash, download it for free on iTunes immediately and bask in the glory of what we all hoped and prayed Glee would be, before it so miserably failed us all. Smash is astounding.

Now, the fashion: Meh. The hair and makeup don’t work, and these proportions are a mess on her. The bust doesn’t fit, the skirt is too long, and it’s all a little dreary.

The girl sure loves her cut-outs, doesn’t she? If only she loved a better hair style and a dress that didn’t have boob ruffles.

JAIME KING // top and skirt by Jason Wu for Target

First of all, I cannot believe Jaime King thinks she’s cute enough to get away with platinum blonde hair, black roots, and black eyebrows. It’s enough. Second, this outfit is awful beyond comprehension. And I don’t know if she’s wearing uneven booties or – perish the thought – SOCKS WITH HEELS, but whatever’s happening south of her calves is a nightmare.

JENNIFER ANISTON at the Directors Guild Awards // dress by Dolce & Gabbana, purse by Salvatore Ferragamo, shoes by Celine

You’ve got to be fucking kidding me. I won’t even go back and refer to the number of times Jenn has worn a black strapless embellished bathrobe on the red carpet, with stick-straight hair and black accessories. It would take me a month and a half to get through them all. This look is TEN YEARS OLD, Jennifer. Find something new, for God’s sake.

NO! BAD STARLET! When Valentino lends you a stunning cap-sleeved red lace sheer gown, you ask for the appropriate slip to go under it. YOU DO NOT PAIR IT WITH ANOTHER DRESS! SHAME ON YOU!

And if I see that braid one more time, I’m cutting it off your head and using it as a broom.
