The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 1

Let’s get back to our regularly scheduled programming!

KATE WINSLET at the London premiere of Titanic 3D // gown by Jenny Packham

I received a text message from my best, gayest friend the other night, asking whether I thought Kate Winslet’s nipples would be 3-D in the new Titanic film. This has little to nothing to do with this gown, but I thought it was a good talking point. And let’s be honest – what else are we paying to see? Icebergs? Nuh-uh.

Anywho, the dress. Yes, she looks lovely, but I can’t be the only one who is exhausted with Kate’s devotion to the same gown over and over again. Darling, we all love Jenny Packham gowns with little embellishments, and those skinny Stella McCartney dresses, and anything minimalist and structured by Victoria Beckham, but you’ve got to branch out just a tad, darling.

Go and GET it, Snow White! You might remember Lea Michele wearing a mega-high-slitted version of this gown in blue, but I prefer the stripes, the colors, and most of all, the lack of upper thigh exposure on little Lily. Also, this bitch has eyebrows to rival Downton Abbey‘s Lady Mary. (And that’s saying something – Lady Mary’s eyebrows have their own twitter account!) Love the soft, wavy hair and the minimalist makeup. So fresh-faced and fabulous.

Eh. A little immature. Lily can work the shit out of a look that a young 20-something would wear, but the more teenage she gets, the less impressed I am.

I hate these washed-out colors, but the Fannings are practically married to ivory and nude, so what can I do? The dress itself is actually stunning – it’s vintage Halston, which means my disco-queen mom would LOVE it. The hair and makeup are terrific, and the purse is awesome, but the shoes don’t impress me.

Someone’s had some terrifying work done recently. J.Lo, darling, I know you’ve been through a rough time this year, but there’s no need to resort to calling Latoya Jackson’s plastic surgeon. And the divalicious neon colors are great, but more than one at a time is a bit much to stomach. And sweetheart, there’s no shame in going up a dress size so that you’re actually able to breathe.

I am all kinds of in love with this dress, though it’s not a terrific fit on Rose. This is one of those “I don’t like the dress on her, but I want to rip it off her back and throw it in my closet” kind of moments.

BAD KATNISS! Who was in charge of making your bangs resemble human hair instead of dog hair? What drag queen thought your face could handle that much eye makeup? And what intern is cowering, crying in the corner, because you fired her for letting you out of the house in this wrinkled mess of a dress?

RIHANNA in London // jacket by Stella McCartney, sunglasses by Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony

I think this jacket is astoundingly beautiful. I also think it was meant to be worn with things that are foreign to Rihanna, like “pants” and “shirts” and “elegance.”

It could be a cute dress if it didn’t point arrows directly at her uterus. It’s too weird, and I can’t get over how viciously disgusting her hair is. Oh, and Rihanna? Your breasts might be fake, but make no mistake about it: you still need to wear a bra.

This will not be the last time Rihanna leaves the house in pajamas this week. But I actually think these are kind of terrific, especially with the sunglasses and shoes.

Beyonce: The hat. The sunglasses. The earrings. EXPLAIN YOURSELF.

OLIVIA WILDE in London // gown by Carolina Herrera, purse by Jimmy Choo

The dress is wearing her, and it’s not a particularly pretty dress at that. And the giant platform shoe is beyond ridiculous.

A message to the world:

JANUARY JONES in New York City // gown by Yves Saint Laurent

The dress is depressingly matronly, and the hair is way worse. I don’t understand how J.Jones and Christina Hendricks can be the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen on television, and never manage to impress me in real life.

Hideous. The cut and fit has no relation to her actual body whatsoever. It’s too long, it’s too loose in the tummy and too tight everywhere else, and the hair is appalling. And it only gets worse:


Go home. Stop subjecting us to your crimes against fashion.

Cute! But without the Julia Roberts smile, it’s hard to remember who she is. Actually, it’s kind of hard to remember who she is either way.

Aren’t we done with jumpsuits yet? Hasn’t that train left the station like eight thousand times? And that Christmas bow on your tummy is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen.

Oh, fantastic. Katy Perry’s dye-your-hair-to-match-your-outfit trend is finally catching on. I’d rather gouge my eyes out than see these shenanigans continue. Oh, and Jaime? You are SO not stylish enough to pull this off. Leave it to Zoe Saldana.

CHLOË SEVIGNY in New York City // top and skirt by Proenza Schouler

I have sat here staring at this picture for five minutes without writing a word. I have thrown my hands up in exasperation several times, and rolled my eyes several more. There are no words to match this level of crazy, so I will let Ms. Sevigny’s hideousness speak for itself.

But I’d like to add that Alexa Chung called, and she wants her disgusting mental patient haircut back.

    My sixteen year old cousin went to go see Titanic just for Kates boobs in 3D. I really do think that that is what is selling this movie to the guys.
    I think that Kate looked beautiful but I dont see the hype with this gown. Yes, it was the best look that came out of the past week but its typical Kate. Also, the girls need more support!

  2. When I got to the “What the fuck did I just say about chokers?” part I laughed out loud (as eloquent as I can be, I sadly also have the mouth of a sailor lol). I must say, fashion for this week was quite, ahem, hideous!
