The Week in Celebrity Fashion

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

Mere mortals don’t have a chance of pulling off this Star Trek-chic thing that Zoe’s got going on, but damn, does it work on her. Major points just for wearing a gown that feels unique, and bonus points for actually pulling it off.

There’s something off about the proportions – I think it’s just that the skirt is too damn short for that high neckline. But the colors are fantastic and the shoes are flawless.

This gown is beautiful, and the color is fantastic on Nicole. Love the earrings, but the purse, while cute, brings this look too close to a bridesmaid place.

Hate the hair, but the rest of the look is pretty great. That printed green dress with her gorgeous eyes is pretty unstoppable.

Love the dress, love the purse. Not crazy about the hair and makeup, but I really can’t stop looking at that purse.

I LOVE this more natural-looking makeup on her. The fit of the dress isn’t great – it’s too long, and too tight in the bust – but it’s still a lovely gown. She could have used a little jewelry, though.

I am all kinds of in love with this dress, and those shoes, though not necessarily together. I actually don’t mind the patterned shoes with the mixed-print dress, but the dress is a little bit too long for those ankle booties.

She looks two feet tall and three feet wide.

Lady Mary is stunning in purple, isn’t she? I’m in love with this gown, but the styling isn’t quite right. The bracelets don’t really go with the earrings, the clutch certainly doesn’t match, and the lipstick really is not my favorite.

You know I love Kerry Washington for her willingness to wear interesting gowns that other starlets are too damn scared to try, but I just think the bottom of this dress looks fucking ugly.

A little underwhelming, but it’s the best she’s looked in forever, since she’s not covered in a giant flasher coat and too much jewelry and not enough ta-ta support. That necklace is all kinds of beautiful.

Not the most unique dress in the world, but she looks absolutely flawless in it.

I don’t know which accessory I love more – that purse, or Pacey Witter.

It looks a little stuffy and it ages her a bit, but it’s not a bad look. It’s just incredibly severe.

Speaking of incredibly severe, does Nicole Richie ever not look like there is a ski pole up her ass? I mean, unclench for a minute, girl. Are you afraid your wig will fall off if you don’t keep that frigid, constipated pose?

I love this dress. It’s not bad on Nicole, actually, I just think it would be infinitely better on about a million other starlets. Or in my closet.

It’s half-interesting, half-difficult to look at. And the shoes are just tacky.

The dress is an ill-fitting snooze, and I veto those pointy red pumps.

No. This silhouette is a freaking disaster on her, and this was clearly designed for someone closer to Chloë Moretz’s age than Julianne Moore’s.

Love the skirt, but the top and boots take this straight into really tacky and ridiculously dated territory.

One response to The Week in Celebrity Fashion

  1. I was scrolling down all, “OK, Rosie, good job!” And then I got to the boots. It’s upsetting because it was a good look until I got to them, but they make the top/skirt look like shit too.
