The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 2

Welcome back, dear readers! Celebrities are awaiting your judgment, so let’s dive in.

Ms. Chastain is serving up some serious Princess Ariel-goes-to-the-Oscars couture, and that is absolutely a compliment. Girlfriend was born to wear this color, and the embellished belt looks killer on her.

I like to think I’ve got a bit of an attitude on me, but I could live a thousand years and never have as much ‘tude as Anna Dello Russo. Just LOOK at this crazy bitch. She never lets me down.

So even though it sort of looks like she’s wearing a tee shirt over a prom dress, I am staunchly in favor of this look. Come on, when was the last time you saw J.Lo in a non-skintight gown/dress/article of clothing? Everything about this screams DIVA – I have to respect that.

I am all kinds of obsessed with this dress, but I think that belt only distracts from its beauty. And while I love a shoe with some lace-up action, these particular shoes aren’t my favorite.

Love the dress, but the styling could use some work. For instance, I know that’s not a Livestrong bracelet she’s wearing, but it looks a little bit too much like one, doesn’t it? The shoes are boring, and either the hair or the makeup should have been relaxed a bit more to lessen the severity of the overall look.

Best thing Sandra’s worn in years? I think so. That color is killer on her – in fact, everything about the dress is working for me. I know those shoes were worn with the dress in the runway version of this look too, but I don’t think they’re actually the best choice for this dress.

The whole dress needs to be lifted up an inch or two – if it were, she’d look pretty damn great. But the proportions here are kind of sloppy.

Tilda, you are a weird, weird bird, and that’s just one of many things I love about you.

Cute, but just a little bit overdesigned.

This dress in gray was my Fall 2012 red carpet prediction for Duchess Kate. I do love it in red, but how many different versions of the same look can Victoria possibly wear? We’re approaching infinity at this point.

Ugh, wear the jacket or don’t, but delicately perching it on your shoulders? I don’t know why, but it bugs the crap out of me.

AMY ADAMS in Saint Helier, Jersey
dress by Antonio Berardi, shoes by Casadei


It’s too overworked and the bodice is completely unflattering, which is a shame – such an interesting little dress could have made quite a statement if it didn’t appear so sloppy. Also, enough green outfits with green jewelry, darling. We get it – redheads look nice in green. But there’s got to be a point of diminishing returns on that.

Hate the shoes with a burning, fiery passion, but this is probably the most interesting dress I’ve ever seen Kristen Wiig wear. She really can work these kind of relaxed, loose-fitted silhouettes, and I like this dress in particular because it’s got some fun mod-ness to it as well.

RITA ORA in London
dress by Katy Eary


The dress is kind of cool, and the shoes are delish, but I’m hoping she retires that hair soon.

Eh. It’s a little awkward and not remotely memorable.

I don’t know what I want more – that puppy or those sunglasses.

You work that printed maxi skirt, Miranda. For God’s sake, even her baby has adorable street style – I’d wear those teal Chuck Taylors in about a second.

Dig the suit, but not the buttoned-up shirt. And the shoes and purse would be fun with a different outfit, but they’re a little too distracting for me here.

Understated but delish. Black-on-navy doesn’t sound like it’ll work, but Octavia makes it look effortless.

Ugh. We get it. You’re twee. Now let’s dress like we aren’t the baddest girl in our Catholic kindergarten class.
