The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 2

Welcome back, dear readers! I’m approaching the end of the semester, so you’ll have to forgive the sometimes sporadic blogging. But nevermind that!

Go ahead and get it while you can, Snow White! Yes, this is as ridiculously Disney princessy as anything else, but it’s got a romantic Victorian feel that’s a little more grown-up but not quite aging. Her makeup artists needn’t be so heavy-handed – she’s flawless without the extra blush and bright-red lips – but it’s a job well done.

I am all kinds of in love with this gown. I could do without the matronly hairstyle , the rings, and the string around her wrist, but I’ll take what I can get.

Dianna! You are simply KILLING it in your elevated street style! The dress is right on-trend (can’t swing a stick in April without whacking six starlets in florals, right?), the coat is delicious, even the pumps give a little vintage-feeling sweetness to the look.

The dress isn’t particularly remarkable, but this look is ALL about the accessories. That kitschy floral purse is just adorable, chic and age-appropriate. And the shoes? She’s wearing the red version of these badass lil’ things:

Ariel Winter is the best-dressed female cast member of Modern Family. There is no question about this.

TAYLOR SWIFT at the ACM Awards // gown by J. Mendel

It’s a relief to see Taylor in something a little less Taylor-esque than we’re used to. But if I’m not grading on a curve, I have to say that this is still kind of a big old mess. Yes, I’m relieved the hair is different, but those sloppy bangs are pretty terrible. Yes, I’m happy she’s willing to show even the slightest bit of skin, but poorly-fitted side cut-outs, when everyone and their mother has already worn a side cut-out gown already, isn’t the way to do this. And the length? I mean, Taylor’s like a thousand feet tall. How is it even possible that a gown could be this unreasonably long on her?

Another J. Mendel gown with gold detailing and cut-outs, but this one is even worse. Brooklyn clearly thinks she’s the best thing to happen to the red carpet in decades, and I have to vehemently disagree. This is ill-fitting, tacky, and sloppy.

This is more much elegant and fits better, but STILL with the side cut-outs? This is getting exhausting. And that train looks stupid.

That is the largest pair of underwear I have ever seen.

GABRIELLE UNION at the Atlanta premiere of Think Like a Man // gown by Bill Blass, purse by Judith Leiber

I wish it fit a little better in the bust, but you can’t beat this amazing yellow on her beautiful skin. It’s just so lovely.

EMILY BLUNT in New York City // dress and purse by Elie Saab, shoes by Sergio Rossi

The makeup is horrible and the shoes are worse. The sleeves don’t even remotely fit her – the square neckline and skinny belt are the best things about this otherwise unimpressive look. The color could have worked on her with different styling, but I’m not convinced.

What am I more exhausted with? Long-sleeved, mini-skirted lace dresses? Blue suede pumps? Her unreasonably lazy wet ponytail? Her miserable pout? I can’t decide, dear readers.

EMMA STONE at the Kids’ Choice Awards // dress by Antonio Berardi, shoes by Alejandro Ingelmo

Ugh, are we really back to blonde Emma Stone? I’m so not happy about that, particularly when she’s opting to return to mixing pink-nudes and gray-nudes and really tacky purses.

SELENA GOMEZ at the Kids’ Choice Awards // top and skirt by Dolce & Gabbana, shoes by Cesare Paciotti

I don’t deny Selena Gomez the right to wear a crop top – it’s just this one that I take particular issue with. I hate those super-wide straps that sort of latch on to the bra part, and the skirt would look cuter if she wore it two inches lower on her waist. But I have to commend her for the shoes, which you need to see up close to truly appreciate:



CHLOË SEVIGNY // dress and shoes by Louis Vuitton

The mental patient haircut continues to be inexcusable, but for the first time in my entire memory, Chloë Sevigny is wearing something relatively normal and even approaching cute. The cap-toed pumps are so trendy I’m almost shocked that someone as “LOOK HOW UNIQUE I AM” as Ms. Sevigny would even wear them. I don’t love the little military-looking embellishments on the bodice, but the skirt is pretty damn cute.

Everyone one of the three dresses you are wearing is ugly, Claire. You lose.

RIHANNA at the Sydney premiere of Battleship // jumpsuit by Stella McCartney, shoes by Manolo Blahnik

KATY PERRY in Chennai, India // dress by Manish Arora, shoes by Charlotte Olympia

The dress is busy and hideous and nothing to write home about. But we need a side-view of the heels to get the full effect.

The dress might be awful, but DAMN, are these shoes all kinds of totally fucking fabulous.

Everything, from the tip of her rainbow ponytail to her FOUR lime-green garments/accessories, is just horrible to look at. Katy, spare us these migraine-inducing acid trips, please. I just don’t think I can bear it.

    Lilys Zac Posen is STUNNING but its killing me how long it is on her. She looks like a little girl playing dress up in her mothers closet.
    I like Kristen Stewarts dress but she really needs to find a new hem because the bitch has some really unatractive chicken legs. And unless you are Emma Watson, I am over this whole lace dress trend.

      LOL on K.Stew’s legs. I admit, they are uncommonly pale (though I’m not one to talk) and her knees are really knobbly.

    Dianna Agron’s street style has been all kinds of fabulous recently.

    Katy Perry’s KCA “outfit” makes me want to cry.

    In a magazine I was reading the other day I saw them commending and WORSE recommending Alexa Chung’s mental patient hair cut, a little part of me died.
    I am ALL OVER Ariel Winter’s gorgeous little number, what I wouldn’t do to have that in my wardrobe and Diana Agron’s street style is so perfect it hurts.
