The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 2

Put your bitch caps on and let’s get cracking.

Elizabeth continues her devotion to fab gowns in fabber colors. This is another beauty, but I’ll be picky and note that it’s just a bit too long, and this isn’t my favorite hairstyle on her, but it works. Dramatically.

Okay, now it’s time for a hair intervention, because this makes you look like Chelsea Handler, and there’s no possible way I could mean that as a compliment. But the dress is perfect, even if Effie Trinket’s not supposed to be the dress that looks like fire. The shoes were a dull choice, though.

I think this dress has just one too many elements. I love the voluminous sleeves, which is something I rarely say, and I like the draping on the skirt and the seaming in the bodice. I think it’s the giant belt combined with the ruffle down the center of the skirt that kills it for me. Nix one or two of those, and it’d be great. Love the shoes.

As Elizabeth continues the bright color trend, Jennifer stays true to her gold-and-black devotion. I think she looks best in these simple, gorgeous pieces that look great on more athletic bodies. But she could do with some jewelry.

Okay, now Katniss is serving up some girl-on-fire shit, but I’m not sure I like it. Surely the tribute’s prep team would have nixed those trashy satin peep-toes, right? And I know Cinna would have opted for a much more flattering pattern that doesn’t make it look as if her entire torso is bleeding.

And we’re back to gold-and-black territory. I’ll give her this much: those shoes are KILLER. Delicious beyond belief. The dress isn’t quite as effective – a little tight, and slightly unflattering.

My only reply to this dress is GO AND GET IT WITH THOSE PERFECT TITS! Though do keep an eye on lefty, who seems to be in danger of coming loose from her safe nest of double-sided tape. Anyway, the color is perfect and the dress is MEGA-flattering, from the cinched waist (she’s itsy-bitsy!) to the plunging neckline (though I wish it were an inch higher) to the pleated skirt. Adorable.

If you were wondering who was going to play the District 2 knife-throwing batshit crazy murdering badass… it’s this adorable little thing! In her fabulous Valentino dress (similar to Emma Watson’s red lace version). Kudos to you, Isabelle, for kicking ass on the red carpet, even if I’m sure you’re going to strike terror into my heart on the big screen.

Love this gown on her. The sort of zig-zag way the dress is cut is fabulous, the draped neckline is perfect, and her hair and makeup are flawless. The giant purple purse I could certainly do without, but it’s a great gown for her.

NAYA RIVERA in New York City // dress by Moschino, purse by Stark, shoes by Christian Louboutin


Let me guess – they’re making a new West Side Story movie and Naya’s gunning to play Anita. I mean, this is borderline cute, but can there be any other reason to wear something this red, satiny, and ruffled?


The dress itself is a little much for me, but at least she accessorized it perfectly. I can’t deal with all that red satin, though.

The dress is okay, the shoes are good, but the Prada purse? Amazing.

The dress is nice, if a few inches too long, but what on earth is happening on her feet? Bey, I know you’ve got a new baby and you must be tired, but surely you pay people to prevent you from leaving the house in footwear like this.

Surprisingly chic and understated, considering we’re talking about Katy Perry.

The hair has possibly never been worse. The dress is so terrifyingly unflattering, it looks like she’s wearing some sort of maternity body armor from the future. Also, if you look closely at her shoes, you’ll see that if she stands with her feet together, the word SEX is bedazzled onto the shoes. See:

I don’t know. If you’re going to bother to spell out words subliminally with bejeweled letters on your Louboutins, don’t you want them to say something a little more interesting than SEX? Though I suppose “Go fuck yourself Russell Brand” doesn’t fit well on a pump.

DEBRA MESSING // dress by Carolina Herrera, shoes by Christian Louboutin

I love that Debra Messing is back in our lives, and not just because I am Grace Adler. I love her sort of brick-patterned dress, I love the blue and silver colors, and I love the silhouette on her. The shoes weren’t the best choice but they’re cute as can be.

There’s something so unbearably preppy about this that just makes me loathe it. The dress itself is fine, but did both the purse AND the shoes have to be white? I’m not one for following rules on when, seasonally, you can wear white, but this just looks silly to me.

Coco, why do you insist on looking like you got dragged through the streets on the way to every red carpet event?

Well, if it gets warm on the red carpet, she can just run really fast in a circle. Boom. Human fan.

The hair style: adorable. The hair color: nightmarish. And that coral gown on her overly tanned skin is just terrible. Pair it with an ill-fitting, lingerie-seeming bodice, a mullet skirt, and nude peep-toe pumps – and it’s a full-on hot disaster.

THIS DRESS DOES NOT FIT YOU. Not in the length, not in the width, and CERTAINLY not in the bust. Fire everyone in your immediate vicinity, Rose. They have been lying to you. Trust no one – except the Democracy Diva.

  1. The girl who plays the district two tribute has probably terrorized you on the big screen before. She’s from Orphan, that traumatizing horror movie. But she looks adorable. In other news, Rose McGowan is actually frightening to look at, and I almost think Miley managed to save that horrible outfit just because that hairstyle is SOOOO great on her.

      I don’t watch horror movies because I’m too chicken, so I can’t attest to her prior scariness. But anyone this adorable is clearly a force to be reckoned with. ❤
