The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 1

It’s as good a time as any for judging, dear readers.

Ms. Fan Bingbing is simply tearing it up in that bright yellow color. I love the neckline, the sleeves, the pockets on the dress, the earrings, and that adorable little purse.

Even your crooked little bow tie is adorable, Eddie.

I obviously adore the full-stop divaliciousness of this dramatic gown. And while I think those bizarre stocking-shoes are fashion-forward and interesting, I don’t think they work at all with the length, colors, or shape of that skirt. But I love the way this feels both vintage and futuristic at the same time.

Possibly an all-time high from Rose Byrne. That shade of pink is heavenly on her, and I love the draped neckline, the dropped waist, even the slightly odd length of the skirt. The shoes and purse keep the look funky and modern rather than girly and innocent, which I appreciate.

Dita von Teese giving us some high fashion Black Swan sex appeal. I am all about this stunning dress, and that neckline is absolutely incredible on her, as are the lace sleeves.

A sexy, fashion-forward neckline? A totally funky and fabulous pair of shoes? Who are you, and what have you done with Taylor Swift?!

The matchy-matchiness of it is downright absurd, but this is Jennifer Lopez we’re talking about. She’s going to make sure every piece of her perfectly white outfit is perfectly gilded and accessorized with an entire European nation’s worth of diamonds. But this dress looks killer on her, and I can’t pretend I don’t love those shoes.

That length is fucking ridiculous, Jennifer. This is all-around unflattering, but there’s no reason for someone this rich to wear something that fits so poorly.

Love the jacket, but I’m never a fan of these buttoned-up blouses. The pants would be cuter if they fit her just a little bit better and sat a little bit lower on her hips, though.

I don’t advice anyone to leave the house wearing this many different prints, but I have to respect SJP for going all-out with it. I love every single piece she’s wearing, but she looks vaguely like a mental patient when she wears them all together.

The shoes/stockings combo is a little prissy, and the similarly schoolgirl dress doesn’t help. It’s a cute look, but it’d be cuter on Chloë Moretz.

Her hair and makeup have never looked worse, and nothing ruins a perfect black Elie Saab evening gown quite like Gumby-green nail polish.

Cute enough, but still incredibly dull and kind of dated, like Jennifer Garner has time-traveled here from a red carpet in 2009.

I love almost everything Diane dishes out, but her beret/braid combo looks absurd, and her farm girl/Peter Pan hybrid dress is absolutely stupid.

Awful. I am revoking my desire for you to win an Oscar, Annie.

The proportions of the top and skirt are completely weird, and though I think blue and black can go together nicely, this isn’t the way to do it. And those booties are just kind of fugly.

Seriously, ladies of Les Mis? Are you really going to sit back and let Eddie Redmayne out-fierce you at every single awards show this season? Have you just given up entirely?

I really want to like this, but it so desperately screams “fashion victim.” The boots are just absurd, especially with the matching belt and collar. And the proportions of the top and skirt don’t make any sense whatsoever. This is just a mess.

Oh, Hailee, darling. I know not everyone can be Kiernan Shipka, but you’re wearing a trash bag as a skirt. You’re carrying a bright yellow leg clutch. Your hair looks absolutely ridiculous, and your Newsies cap is kind of embarrassing. Get it together, darling.
