Let’s jet off to Paris and judge some fashionistas!

Suck it, all other celebrities – no one else can make one of Chanel’s classic tweed double-breasted jackets look this badass. I mean, where else can you wear those gloves but the punk-themed Met Gala or the Chanel couture show? The slightly frayed leather shorts are perfect, as are the shoes, and the styling is better than ever.

I continue to believe that Zuhair Murad and Kristen Stewart are a terrible combination. Even the jumpsuits are so fussy, which doesn’t work at all with her I-don’t-give-a-fuck style.

Killing it.

PACE WU at the Giambattista Valli show
dress by Giambattista Valli, purse by Alexander McQueen


Breathtaking. Pace Wu is new on my radar, but I’m quickly falling in love with her. And I want to steal that pink McQueen clutch.

I don’t love the length or the way the ruffles hang over her boobs, but it’s interesting enough and the belt is cool.

ZHANG ZIYI at the Valentino show

This dress looks like it was made for her, but it’s so beautifully simple that I think she could have gone a little further with the accessories. Nothing too distracting, but something at least a little more unexpected would have made this an unstoppable look.

CLÉMENCE POÉSY at the Chanel show

I want to hate this, but again, where else can you wear this kind of thing but the Chanel couture show? Plus, Clémence has that magic veela French fierceness that enables her to pull this kind of thing off.

It’s a little severe for me, but then again, that’s Versace. I can’t say I love the shoes -the color combined with the platform make them look kind of cheap, when I’m sure they’re anything but.

I love the navy crushed velvet with the lace sleeves, but I think those shoes are all wrong for this dress and maybe hideous in general.

OLIVIA PALERMO at the Valentino show

As usual, she’s got a few too many accessories on, but the dress feels perfect for the event.

I love every individual thing she’s wearing (well, maybe not the belt), but I really don’t like any of it together. This is a very common problem with Ms. Palermo.

ANNA DELLO RUSSO at the Armani Privé show
dress by Altuzarra, boots by Gianvito Rossi for Altuzarra


Eh. For Anna, it’s barely even remarkable, and it looks like a Project Runway reject. I expect more from a woman who wears pineapple fascinators.

This would be fabulous on someone twice her age, but I don’t understand why Milla Jovovich is dressed like she’s going out to brunch with Liza Minnelli.

We get it. Your pants are gigantic. Can you now put on something that is not an optical illusion?

I can’t really put my finger on what’s wrong with this, because it’s a perfectly pretty dress, but I find this look exhaustingly dull.

We get it. You’re tall.

LEELEE SOBIESKI at the Dior show
jumpsuit and shoes by Christian Dior


Even Leelee’s hipster weirdness is not enough to make this jumpsuit work.

Jennifer Lawrence, I love you so much no matter how fucking stupid your pants are. Even though your crop top looks like papier mache and you have a skirt on one leg, I will always think you are cool. BUT STOP LETTING PEOPLE DRESS YOU LIKE THIS PLEASE.

Seriously? Black pants and a black top? This is PARIS COUTURE FASHION WEEK, for the love of God. Put in some effort.

Rihanna has officially ruined the image of grandpa sweaters forever.

    It’s really not poor Uma’s fault she was photographed from below.
