The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 1


Welcome to another fabulous week on the red carpet, dear readers!

Sally Draper is better than you at everything, and you just need to deal with it. Seriously, this is perfect, and the mesh shoes were a stroke of genius.

Not crazy about the booties, but everything else about this is utterly adorable. That dress is just awesome on her.

I WISH I could rock a purple suit as well as Kate Hudson does. I don’t even remotely like Kate Hudson, and this suit is making me want to be her friend. So I can steal her suit.

The almost-but-not-quite matching shoes are destroying me, and this seems like a strange outfit for springtime. But I absolutely love sweaterdresses and we so rarely get to see them on the red carpet, so I’m actually kind of on board with this.

I don’t think the shoes work particularly well, and she is in desperate need of earrings. But I’m all about this dress – the color is perfect on her, and the gold embellishments are fun as hell.

I always wish Christina would wear a more interesting pair of shoes, but everything else about this is so fucking flawless, I can’t actually care. LOOK at that HAIR. I would actually punch a kitten in the FACE for that hair. And the makeup has never been better, and the sheer top of the dress keeps it from looking matronly.

The purse is too big, and this look definitely did not call out for black shoes, but she’s cute as a freaking button in this dress, isn’t she?

All of this is actually kind of chic and cool, but in more of a street style way than a BAFTA New York red carpet way. She seems a little under-dressed for the event.

Almost shockingly chic and put-together for Alexa Chung. The shoes look too big on her, but they’re adorable and they bring some modernity and freshness to the look.

KATY PERRY in Cancun

Katy Perry has been going through a blue period for the Smurfs 2 press tour, and it’s actually really charming. I bet she throws AMAZING theme costume parties – she’s always committed to the bit. I don’t love the silver shoes, but the dress and sunglasses are pretty awesome together. The headband is beautiful, but that shade of blue is a little too different from the other shades of blue in the look.

She’s wearing a print and her royal bump is showing – what more could we want?

I hate everything about this dress.

The shape is way too awkward, which is a shame, because I could have really loved this look if it had a remotely nice-looking silhouette.

There is a bulls-eye over the space between her very visible bra cups. Did she not look in a mirror before attending this event?

No. The dress is great, but the length is a complete nightmare, the shoes are beyond awful, and the purse is distracting.

BELLA THORNE in Hollywood

The hair, makeup, and shoes are awful. I actually think this crop top/skirt combo is kind of killer, but this girl is FIFTEEN YEARS OLD. The makeup ages her at least another fifteen years on top of that.

EMMA STONE in New York City

I hate Emma Stone as a blonde. I really, really do. It doesn’t help that her makeup always looks a little clownish, her dress doesn’t fit, and those shoes – why? Why would she pick those bridesmaid shoes to go with such a casual dress? I just don’t understand it.

REESE WITHERSPOON in New York City

Yup. Definitely the face of someone who just tried to drunkenly tell a cop, “Do you know who I am?” Well, if you’re trying to rebrand your image, Reese, I suggest updating your wardrobe, because this is as boring as possible.

The shoes are too much, but this look is chic and clean and modern. Unfortunately, Gwen completely lost her fucking mind this week, which brings us to…

I don’t know how many different ways I can say no, but NO. NO, NO, NO. This is just terrifying. Everything about this is wrong. And we haven’t even seen the worst of it yet…

NO.

    As adorable as Emma Stone is, this is a clear indication of why she’s no March Fabness winner. Diane would never make such rookie mistakes. She might have fashion missteps, but it’s because she takes risks, not because she has unrefined taste in footwear and her makeup artist is drunk.

      Agreed with all of the above. Missteps from risk-taking are occupational hazards of loving fashion and wanting to try new things; Emma’s mistakes are unforgiveable.
