Front Row at Paris Fashion Week

It’s time for a quick trip to Paris, dear readers. You deserve it!

Bow. The. Fuck. DOWN. Leelee is killing it in the most delicious red coat dress I’ve ever laid eyes on. Love the pockets, belt, and the perfect gray shoes. Everything about this is fabulous.

The upcoming Les Mis movie means that Amanda Seyfried, like Anne Hathaway, will be all over the red carpet, and she’s started with a fantastic appearance in Paris. If she’s going to pull out more fucking delectable Miu Miu suits and absolutely killer Prada accessories, I am going to be the happiest diva in the blogosphere.

A perfect LBD, and she looks very American-girl-in-Paris with her black cardigan (though I’d have preferred a blazer). The purse is chic, the matching shoes are adorable, but the matching lipstick might be a touch over the top. And this feels so 2010, but I have to complain about that blonde hair. It’s just not the right shade for her.

That’s a lot of leather and pleats – probably more than any human being should wear together. But Olivia somehow pulls it off with simple, chic pumps and a furry purse. (Furse? Is that be a thing? Should I be making “furse” happen?)

CHLOË SEVIGNY at the Miu Miu show

No one else on earth could pull it off, but I can’t pretend I don’t love literally every single part of this outfit. And I usually don’t have patience for Chloë’s fashion antics, but with a chic haircut and her legs looking amazing in those shorts, I have no cause for complaint.

I love this dress. It’s ridiculously flattering, adorable but not twee, incredibly well-fit, and the color is perfect. I’d never have gone with a blue clutch and the taupe shoes are only okay, but T. Swift is looking sweet but chic.

I hate her hair and boots too much to enjoy this outfit, which is a shame. I love Kristen in pants, and these are great ones, and that pale yellow motorcycle jacket is a killer piece. But it’s Paris Fashion Week, Kristen. Brush your god damn hair.

I dig the Barbra-meets-Twiggy hair and makeup (duh), and I think the dress/stockings combo is delicious and fun. The blue suede platform sandals, however, were an obvious mistake. Open-toed shoes with stockings, Dianna? Did you really think you could get away with it?

The jacket and dress are beautiful, but together, it’s a bit much. Perhaps the leopard print trim on the dress is what’s pushing it over the top for me. That and the green purse. And she should have gone subtle with the shoes, but if I have to complain about how boring nude peep-toe pumps are one more time, I’ll lose my mind.

I really can’t support a denim vest, even if it is by Chanel. But in spite of that, there are things I like here, namely her purse, shoes, and nothing else.

A little matronly – I wish she hadn’t closed the coat so tightly and covered it with that massive necklace – but the dress is clearly beautiful. I just wish we could see more of it. The shoes work, but the giant purse is just another distraction.

I love the cut and color of that blazer – it looks custom-made for her, which it should, because it most likely is. But I can’t take a grown woman wearing a butterfly pin seriously,  so I refuse to comment any further.

I don’t know what I hate most – the pussy bow or the sheer fabric at the top. It’s mediocre Project Runway work at best, the hair is tacky, and the accessories are downright boring.

Jessica, can you please try a little harder? Your lackadaisical approach to a Paris runway show is highly disappointing. And whoever told you orange-red lips and matching nails would work on you is a filthy liar.

You’re a grown-ass woman, Jennifer Lopez. Enough with the freaking babydoll dresses. Also: your shoes have tassels on them. I see absolutely no reason for that nonsense.
