The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 3

There’s lots more red carpet to cover, dear readers.

Our Fierce and Fabulous First Lady has bangs, and she’s back in another spectacular Jason Wu look for President Obama’s second inauguration. What more could you ask for? The perfect red, stunning embellishments in silk and velvet, and a delightful and mega-flattering halter top, all in one beautifully fringed package.

And for her wintertime chic look, our fab FLOTUS works a truly stunning Thom Browne coat that soon everyone in America will own a knock-off of, a fun glitzy belt, and the perfect pair of fuchsia leather gloves.

Let’s get this out of the way: the only reason I’m heartbroken that Beyonce was lip-syncing the National Anthem is because when she ripped the monitor out of her ear mid-song without missing a beat – my whole life changed. I mean, I LIVE for that kind of shit. I thought that was the best, most fabulously divalicious, most immensely cool thing I’d ever seen on live television, the way she was like “BITCHES I DON’T NEED NO MONITORS” and flawlessly continued tearing the shit out of that impossible-to-sing song like nothing even happened. I fancy myself a singer, and shit like that impresses me beyond belief. So I am heartbroken, but I’m giving Bey a break because it was 40 degrees out and the acoustics there were atrocious and those are pretty good reasons for lip-syncing.

Oh, and the gown is stunning, and she looked radiant in it. But that kind of goes without saying.

EDDIE REDMAYNE at Berlin Fashion Week

In case you were wondering if Eddie Redmayne has stopped being ridiculously delectable – no. No, he has not, and he likely never will. His perfect pinstriped Hugo Boss suit is just one more in a string of red carpet victories.

I probably wouldn’t have paired that stunning velvet blazer with that cardigan and pants, mostly because he seems to be wearing far too many different shades of blue. But he still looks better than almost everybody else on the red carpet, so I can’t complain too much.

The leather pants and shoes aren’t particularly my style, but obviously Miranda works the hell out of them. But from the waist up, I love every single piece she’s wearing. Coat, sweater, purse, shades – this woman has a never-ending supply of phenomenally gorgeous separates and accessories.

I swear, you could dress every person attending New York Fashion Week, and dress them well, using only Miranda Kerr’s closet.

Speaking of fashion week, it’s couture time in Paris, and the celebrities are flocking to see and be seen in gorgeous designer duds. I have a crush on everything little miss Moretz is wearing, but the jacket is just to die for.

Fabulous. I love her curls, the dress is unique and fits her like a dream, and the shoes are kicky and fun. Ms. Rossum tends to look good, but sh’s never looked quite so chic and polished before.

I’d punch a kitten in the face to get my hands on this dress. I love the combination of the florals and the geometric print, and that shade of yellow is just fantastic. The Dorothy shoes wouldn’t have been my first choice, and she could use a piece of jewelry or some better hair or makeup to liven things up a little bit, but it’s still a great look.

It’s hard to look this good when it’s this cold (though of course, it helps to be an ice queen like Nicole). Seriously, though, Ms. Kidman is working is some fabulous apres-ski style at Sundance, and I’m digging it.

EMILY BLUNT at the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards

It’s lightly ill-fitting in the bust and in the length, and I could happily never see another peplum on the red carpet as long as I live, since those things have been so fucking ubiquitous over the last year or two. And I don’t think the double-belt is particularly flattering – the fact that it’s such a different shade of black from the dress is also a little distracting. But I’m nitpicking, dear readers, because I love.

Adorable dress, and I think it’s styled very nicely, but those giant pockets on the dress are a little distracting.

Did literally everything, including the socks and gloves, have to be black? That just seems unnecessarily underwhelming, don’t you think?

Is there an age limitation on bedhead on the red carpet? I feel like that’s just beyond lame after your teen years, and Sienna’s 31.

Eponine’s serving up some sharpness, but the styling is a little too underwhelming. A belt, a bracelet, and showy earrings would have pumped the volume up to eleven. Love the shiny pumps, though!

There are better, more interesting ways to do ladypants than this. Also, the makeup feels kind of dated, and the earrings just look out of sync with the rest of the outfit.

Ugh. I get that it’s supposed to hang off her body like that, but that doesn’t mean it looks good. It just means it’s not an accident – people actually want to hit the red carpet in sparkly togas.

The gown is actually way better than her usual feathered, mermaid-shaped nightmares, but the stick-straight, center-parted hair has got to go.

NINA DOBREV at the Warner Bros. Golden Globes after-party
dress by Oscar de la Renta, purse by Oroton, shoes by Jimmy Choo


I could like this dress (if it actually fit), but she’s got to be kidding with those torture-device-looking shoes. Is she really walking around in stiletto Slinkies? Is that how terrible things have become in Hollywood?

    I’m actually really underwhelmed by FLOTUS. Sure the gown is stunning but shes lacking something that I cant quite put my finger on. Maybe an updo and some better accessories would take care of that, but I’m not sure.
    Eddie Redmayne is colorblind so that might explain the different shades of blue…either way, I wish I was as well dressed as he is. Is that sad? Yea, that’s pretty sad.

      I didn’t know Eddie was colorblind – that might explain it, but I’d be surprised if he didn’t have a stylist who could sort out the color issues for him. Either way, still delicious! I’d kill to be as well-dressed as he is.
