It’s been too long since we’ve had a red carpet catch-up, dear readers.
DIANE KRUGER in New York City
dress by Preen, purse by Chanel, shoes by Loeffler Randall
This was my Pre-Fall 2013 red carpet prediction for Kirsten Dunst, but I am all kinds of in love with it on March Fabness 2013 semi-finalist Diane Kruger. This girl power-clashes prints like a master, and her shoes are to die for.
DIANE KRUGER in Los Angeles
dress by Thakoon, shoes by Jimmy Choo
Like all the best things Diane wears, this is slightly weird but totally fabulous. The side cut-outs are stunning and sexy but not overtly so, and the shoes are positively insane in the best possible way.
DIANE KRUGER in Hollywood
top by Carven, skirt by Vanessa Bruno, shoes by Christian Louboutin
I hate the shoes, but this bitch knows how to work a crop top, I’ll give her that.
KIERNAN SHIPKA in Los Angeles
dress by Red Valentino, shoes by Jimmy Choo
You guys, Mad Men comes back this weekend and I am STUPID excited about it. Because more Kiernan Shipka in my life is always a good thing. I love everything about this look, but particularly the shoes – she’s graduating to grown-up shoes and it’s just awesome.
KIERNAN SHIPKA at the Kids’ Choice Awards
dress by Rag & Bone
Black ankle booties with short dresses are one of my biggest red carpet pet peeves, but Kiernan makes this look better than basically every other starlet I’ve ever seen it on.
JESSICA ALBA in New York City
jacket by Michael Kors, purse by Roger Vivier, shoes by Christian Louboutin
I would like one of everything she’s wearing, please and thank you.
JESSICA ALBA at the Kids’ Choice Awards
dress by Mary Katrantzou, purse by Stella McCartney, shoes by Christian Louboutin
I think 90% of Mary Katrantzou dresses are hideous; this is no exception. And while I love those shoes, I’ve seen them on celebrities more than enough over the last few seasons. I think they’re nearing red-carpet retirement.
COBIE SMULDERS in Hollywood
dress by Bibhu Mohapatra, purse by Devi Kroell, shoes by Aldo by Preen
The purse is a little too big, so it distracts a little from the clean, chic fierceness of this look. But I do love this dress on her (though maybe it could be an inch shorter?), and the shoes look great with it.
ALEXA CHUNG in New York City
jacket and skirt by Carven
I’d like it better if it weren’t khaki and she weren’t wearing a brooch shaped like a pineapple. I can’t imagine anything more hipster than a freaking diamond pineapple brooch.
FREIDA PINTO in London
top, skirt, and purse by Proenza Schouler, shoes by Rupert Sanderson
My Pre-Fall 2013 red carpet predictions had Kirsten Dunst in the blue-green version of this dress. I’m digging this one on Freida, but I’m not sure the boxy shape and the belt are particularly flattering on her. The colors are for sure fantastic, but something about this feels a little awkward.
FREIDA PINTO in Mumbai
dress by Naeem Khan, shoes by Jimmy Choo
I’m not sold on the shoes, which seem a little unnecessarily fussy for the event and the look, but the dress is great.
JANUARY JONES in Los Angeles
dress by Jonathan Saunders, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Love it from the neck down, but that hair and makeup are seriously lacking.
JESSICA PARÉ in Los Angeles
dress by Prabal Gurung, shoes by Prabal Gurung for Casadei
This was my Pre-Fall 2013 red carpet prediction for Kate Bosworth. I love this dress, but I hate those shoes with it – they were in the runway look too, but I find them incredibly distracting and not particularly pretty. Combined with the very busy dress, it’s just too much.
ELISABETH MOSS in Los Angeles
dress by McQ, purse by Charlotte Olympia, shoes by Sergio Rossi
The dress is okay, the purse is killer, and the shoes are terrible. I hate those little teardrop peep-toes that only show, like, a centimeter of toe. What’s the point?
CHRISTINA HENDRICKS in Los Angeles
dress by L’Wren Scott, purse by L.K. Bennett, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti
The dress is a little dowdy (I think the length is the problem) and I’m not a fan of the shoes. C’mon, Joanie, you’re better than this.
BLAKE LIVELY in Toronto
dress by Roland Mouret, shoes by Christian Louboutin
This was my Resort 2013 red carpet prediction for Keira Knightley. It would have looked fantastic on Blake if it weren’t for the shoes, which just make me cringe. I could love them with an LBD, but with this dress? It’s a mess.
FERGIE at the Kids’ Choice Awards
dress by Mary Katrantzou, purse by Swarovski
I liked this print much better on Lucy Liu, because the silhouette was actually interesting and it wasn’t three sizes too small on her. And I know the backdrop isn’t Fergie’s fault, but this dress is sort of impossible to look at with all that crap in the background.
KATY PERRY at the Kids’ Choice Awards
top and skirt by Hervé Léger, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Listen, I’m all for a crop top, but can we maybe not wear bras as tops to the Kids’ Choice Awards, just like, as a rule?
JENNIFER LOPEZ in Phoenix, Arizona
dress by Maria Lucia Hohan, purse and shoes by Christian Louboutin
J.Lo will be dressing like a teenager into her seventies, won’t she?
EMMY ROSSUM in Beverly Hills
dress by Tory Burch, shoes by Jimmy Choo
WHO DID THAT TO YOUR FACE, EMMY? Fire them. And whoever picked out those torture devices on your feet. There is no reason for you to look like this, darling.
