March Fabness 2012, Round 1: McQueen Bracket

Polls on the McQueen bracket have now closed, but vote on the rest of the March Fabness brackets!


EMMA STONE: gown and purse by Lanvin // KATE WINSLET: dress by Stella McCartney, shoes by Yves Saint Laurent
The ladies start things off with a bang: Emma pairs her ginger locks with a greenish navy gown and metallic clutch, while Kate hits the red carpet in body-conscious black and white.

EMMA STONE: dress by Giambattista Valli, shoes by Christian Louboutin // KATE WINSLET: gown by Elie Saab, purse by Roger Vivier
The stars get mega-dramatic in red. Can you handle a redhead in colorblocked red and pink? Or are you more of an old-fashioned, blonde-in-a-red-gown person?

EMMA STONE: gown by Lanvin // KATE WINSLET: gown by Jenny Packham, purse by Anya Hindmarch
Back in Ms. Stone’s blonde phase, she worked her light hue with pink lips and yet another fabulous Lanvin gown. An even blonder Ms. Winslet goes for a bejeweled, low-cut gown by Jenny Packham.

EMMA STONE: tuxedo by Gucci // KATE WINSLET: gown by Ralph Lauren
Emma Stone suited up in a funky ensemble by Gucci, while Kate Winslet keeps things simple and elegant in black Ralph Lauren.

EMMA STONE: gown and shoes by Lanvin // KATE WINSLET: gown by Jenny Packham, shoes by Roger Vivier
The actresses do battle at the Golden Globes, as Emma’s gorgeous purple Lanvin takes on Kate’s classic black-and-white Jenny Packham.

Only you can decide, dear readers: Who’s the fabbest?


SHAILENE WOODLEY: dress by Proenza Schouler, shoes by Diane von Furstenberg // ANNA WINTOUR: top and skirt by Marc Jacobs
The Descendants star Shailene matches her yellow-green pumps to her floral sheath, but can she beat the thrice-her-age editor-in-chief of Vogue?

SHAILENE WOODLEY: dress by Dolce & Gabbana // ANNA WINTOUR: dress by Balenciaga, shoes by Manolo Blahnik
Ms. Woodley takes a lovely lace lilac sheath and pairs it with relaxed waves and black pumps, while Ms. Wintour opts for another of her signature mixed-print dresses.

SHAILENE WOODLEY: dress by Dolce & Gabbana, shoes by Rachel Zoe // ANNA WINTOUR: dress by Prada
Shailene shows a love of florals in a mega-flattering, colorful confection by Dolce & Gabbana, while Anna works multicolored stripes in stunning Prada.

SHAILENE WOODLEY: gown by L’Wren Scott // ANNA WINTOUR: dress by Marni
As the ladies up the formality, they stick to their signature styles, with Shailene in a youthful, colorful floral and Anna in stylish geometrics.

SHAILENE WOODLEY: gown by Valentino // ANNA WINTOUR: gown by Chanel
Clearly, neither lady opts for the ordinary when it’s time to pull out all the stops. You decide, dear readers: who wins?


KATY PERRY: dress by Giambattista Valli // REESE WITHERSPOON: dress by Zac Posen
Does your version of casual red carpet chic incorporate a fuchsia cardigan over a matching dress, with lips and hair to match? Or is it more laid-back and sexy, like Reese’s figure-hugging green dress? (Which is also, incidentally, the same Zac Posen dress Megan Hilty’s character on Smash buys on consignment in last week’s episode. Small world!)

KATY PERRY: dress by Christian Dior, hat by Philip Treacy // REESE WITHERSPOON: dress by Marchesa
This is a straight-up question of taste, dear readers: Can you approve of a cube-shaped fascinator, or not?

KATY PERRY: gown by Vivienne Westwood // REESE WITHERSPOON: dress by Jason Wu
The stars don matching poses to show off, respectively, a stunning Asian-inspired gown by Vivienne Westwood and an embellished LWD by Jason Wu.

KATY PERRY: gown by Elie Saab // REESE WITHERSPOON: dress by Stella McCartney, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Both ladies try their hand at blue, with Katy in a body-conscious, long-sleeved icy blue gown and Reese in a darker, more modern cocktail dress.

KATY PERRY: gown by Alexis Mabille // REESE WITHERSPOON: gown by Zac Posen
When the ladies hit the big events, they show off their most dramatic looks. But do you prefer Katy in stunning ivory-pink couture (and her larger-than-life rose-shaped hat) by Alexis Mabille, or Reese in a classic red gown by her beloved Zac Posen?


CHLOË MORETZ: leggings by Stella McCartney // CAMERON DIAZ: dress and coat by Versace
Blonde actresses face off in an epic battle of fierceness. Ms. Moretz shows off incredible style (particularly for a fifteen-year-old) in her yellow-and-black-lace Stella McCartney leggings, as Ms. Diaz gets funky in a minidress and matching coat by Versace.

CHLOË MORETZ: dress by Carven // CAMERON DIAZ: dress by Christian Dior, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti
Black and white-ish patterened dress, hair up, and strappy sandals? Check, check, check. But do you prefer Chloë’s youthful, modern style, or Cameron’s vintage-style throwback frock?

CHLOË MORETZ: dress by Dolce & Gabbana // CAMERON DIAZ: dress by Valentino, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Both ladies love an embellished black or white dress (as do most of us). On the left, Chloë serves up mixed-printed black lace by Dolce & Gabbana, while Cameron’s lovely embroidered sheath comes from Valentino.

CHLOË MORETZ: dress by Christopher Kane // CAMERON DIAZ: gown by Victoria Beckham
These ladies love a killer color (or five) when it’s time to play dress-up. Chloë wowed us in rainbow Christopher Kane, but can it beat statuesque Cameron in orange Victoria Beckham?

CHLOË MORETZ: dress by Versace // CAMERON DIAZ: gown by Gucci
So, dear readers, the choice is yours: Does Ms. Moretz’s unbeatable 21st-century-teen style beat Ms. Diaz’s Hollywood glamour?

    OK I thought Emma v. Kate was REALLY hard. But then when I voted, I was one of the minority voters. Basically-I know little about fashion.

    Cameron Diaz’s hair of late is unforgivable. I feel like you should make a post of shame for regular offenders -cough- Alexa Chung -cough-. March Fabness is absolutely fabulous! 😀

      La Diaz needs a hair intervention ASAP. And if anyone deserves a post of shame, Alexa Chung is at the top of that list! Thanks for reading ❤
